I have been involved in Christian apologetics for a little over 20 years, with about 7 years of ‘professional’ church work under my belt. I’ve had many, many conversations with unbelievers, online and off. Many, if not most, were not raised as atheists, but were former Christians. We tended to focus on argument and evidence […]
Solving the Islamicist Problem Once and For All, Part 7, The Rampart, B: Embracing the First Amendment

In Part 7.A of this series, I tried to explain some of the features of a Christian culture that made it a ‘bulwark’ against Islamicism. Opponents of this perspective nearly always interpret such statements to mean, “Christians are better people, and that’s why…” but that’s no where near the real argument, which is, “All people […]

“There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a […]

You don’t know whether to laugh or cry when you read stories such as this one. Do people really think that the divide between a culture based on the Koran and a culture based on secular humanism can be bridged by having the ‘refugees’ take sex education classes? Yes, actually. Such stories represent a microcosm […]

When I was a professional church worker I constantly raised this question: “Who are you?” and attempted to instill in each person this answer: “I am a unique child of God, full of potential, and my life is hidden in Christ.” Life experience has taught me that there is power in this identity. I have […]

Peace usually is won through violence, not by hurling platitudes at each other. True story.

Many people, think Christians only care about abortion and gay marriage. Since that is not true, how did this impression come about?

This conversation did not really happen, but it could be easily had: Them: Jesus would want us to show kindness to Muslims (eg., ‘refugees’) and if that means making ourselves vulnerable to extremists, so be it. That is part of the Christian message. We should be people of peace. Me: So, you’re saying that if […]

Installment 1: They’re coming for you, whether your like it or not. War began before you were even born. Installment 2: Don’t give them a foothold. They will ABSOLUTELY use it against you. In the second installment I argued that there were certain things about the Islamic religion that naturally bear certain kinds of fruit. […]

Last week I posted an article on the same topic, where I make the following points: A problem cannot be solved unless one actually understands it. But even that is not enough. One must have the will to carry out the solution. World conquest in the name of Allah is Islamic doctrine. Whether or not […]

The seemingly impossible has been achieved: Christians, interceding on behalf of ‘Syrian Refugees,’ have piled onto Christians who actually have been interceding for Syrian refugees for months, and even years.

Evidently the talking points are out, since I have now heard multiple individuals, especially those of Democrat persuasion, opine that ‘We have been bombing Iraq for 20 years so obviously that doesn’t work!’ Under their breath, they take a jab at GW Bush… as if he was president 20 years ago. But it is not […]

China’s ‘one-child’ policy is a failure… of western liberal philosophies.

On the face of it, liberal arguments for gun control are utterly irrational, with no redeeming value whatsoever, except, perhaps, the good intentions that we charitably allow are genuine. The internal inconsistencies of the arguments, and the complete detachment from reality that they represent, leave one baffled. The position can be understood, however, if you […]
