Review: Richard Weikart’s “The Death of Humanity and the Case for Life”

In a recent post, I argued that one of the tell-tale signs of whether or not a viewpoint does not correspond with reality is whether or not it results in death; one’s own death, or the death of another, or many others.  Supposedly, humans these days are smarter than any humans that have ever existed.  …

The National Popular Vote is Meaningless

I’m amazed–but not really–at the continued fixation on the disparity between the popular vote and the electoral count.  Not really, because I have spent the better part of the last decade studying the ‘left.’  The Democrats thrive on mob movements, so losing the election while winning the mob is perceived by them (accurately, perhaps) as …

Recap: Defending the Faith by Defending the Family

A couple of months ago, I began organizing my thoughts for some presentations I gave at a pastor’s conference.  The overall theme was ‘the need for apologetics in our culture’ which I took as an opportunity to offer an expanded understanding of the idea of ‘apologetics.’  This was borne from my observations and my research …

Discredited for Collusion: A Blacklist of Members of the Media Complicit with the Democrat Party

There is an awful lot of bad press out there for Donald Trump.  An awful lot.  Some of it he deserved, but a lot of it was contrived and even outright lies.  His statements about Mexicans and the assertion that he mocked disabled people were grossly distorted, for example.  Such things can be added to …

Reflections on a Trump Presidency and its Significance

Without radically scaling back the reach of the Federal government and facilitating the adoption of small government principles right down to the local level, the Trump victory is a mere bump on the road towards full-blown statism. But a ‘bump’ is better than nothing.

Why this Christian is Voting for Donald Trump

A Trump presidency would only delay the rise of the fascist state, but that’s better than nothing.

An Apology for Apologetics: Coming to Grips With Hard Truths (Part 6)

The first five parts of this series are important for following the reasoning of this.  Read them, here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. At the end of part five, I quoted from the prophet Malachi, chapter 2: You cover the Lord‘s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering …

An Apology for Apologetics: ‘Good Soil’ for ‘Good News.’

I am four parts into a series organizing my thoughts in advance of an event I’ll be speaking at.  The other parts are important.  You should read them.  (1, 2, 3, 4). In the context of the rise of ‘religious nones,’ in the last part I highlighted the fact that the Church cannot compete against …

An Apology for Apologetics: The Rise of the Naturalism Fallacy (part 3)

This is the third essay of musings, organizing my thoughts for an upcoming presentation. In the first essay, I showed that the rise of the ‘religious nones’ within just the last decade or so is massive, and provided data that supports what most of us already knew:  most of these were raised in the Christian …

An Apology for Apologetics: Factors Driving the Anti-Revival (Part 2)

In preparation for some presentations I have in about a month, I’m penning a couple of posts as a way to organize my thoughts.  (These posts are not necessarily what my presentations are about).  This is the second. In my first post, I highlighted two disturbing trends.  1., the rise of the ‘religious nones,’ people …

An Apology for Apologetics: Musings (Part 1)

What is considered ‘apologetics’ is construed very narrowly for many people–too narrowly.

ACM’s Arts and Apologetics Festival — August 4-7, Greenwood WI

UPDATE:  Click  here to see videos and pics from the event. [9/6/16] Well, I haven’t posted anything here for awhile, and I have my reasons.  It wasn’t because I didn’t have anything to say or that there wasn’t anything worth commenting on!  Regardless, I’ve bit my tongue. I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t …

Our Next President-Tyrant: Trump?

I haven’t posted much on the presidential campaign, or even followed it as closely as I’ve followed others, because I’ve been busy.  And if the reader says, “But the stakes are too important to not follow it extremely closely!” the reader will be making my point.  One of the main ideas behind the republican system …
