Miracles, the Historical Method, and a Merry Christmas

By Anastasia Wood

This year, I have the privilege of studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland. While Scotland is now considered one of the more secular places on earth, it has a rich history of Christianity dating back to perhaps the early third century. So naturally, I made sure to enroll in Edinburgh University’s History of Christianity as a … Continue reading Miracles, the Historical Method, and a Merry Christmas

The Avengers and the Importance of Family

By Leroy Hill

The Marvel movies are so good because they all have a common theme, family. The movies raise questions about family and answers those same questions, not merely with words, but with demonstrations and examples. Movies visually capture what we feel.

The Imperfect Vote

By Phil Bair

I have serious concerns about Andy Crouch’s article in Christianity Today from several  years ago entitled Speak Truth to Trump excoriating Trump as though he was the anti-christ, not the least of which is the fallacy that all government officials must by their very nature be guilty of idolatry. Since Crouch is bringing this point … Continue reading The Imperfect Vote

The Separation of Church and State Deception

By Josh Klein

We’ve been duped. I cannot think of another way to put it.  The Christian right has been duped. Deceived by what?  You may ask. The separation of Church and State.

Critical Race Theory: How to Be an Anti-Rationalist

By Phil Bair

Many conservatives are bewildered and befuddled by the apparent intellectual incoherence of the left. But if we really understand Marxism beyond the superficial levels we often see in the blogosphere and social media, all the bewilderment disappears. We think on the basis of the linear classical method of logical development. In other words, we follow … Continue reading Critical Race Theory: How to Be an Anti-Rationalist

Cuties: The Natural Progression of “Love Is Love”

2015, Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court and the “Love is Love” movement. What do all these things have in common?

Reformed Libertarianism: An Alternative to Guillaume Bignon

A few months ago, my friend Tim Stratton at FreeThinking Ministries asked me to write a piece responding to Guillaume Bignon’s form of exhaustive deterministic Calvinism.

Does God Have Middle Knowledge of His Own Actions?

By Samuel Bourassa

One distinctive feature of Molinism is the idea of Middle Knowledge, whereby God knows what any possible creature would freely do under any possible set of circumstances. Hence, the content of this knowledge is said to include all true Counterfactuals of Creaturely Freedom (CCF). An interesting question arises when we ask ourselves “Does God also … Continue reading Does God Have Middle Knowledge of His Own Actions?

What Christians Might Learn from the Scourge of COVID-19?

By David Oldham

Likely the first things a reader might think of from the above title is the suddenness of church closings, the innovative decisions of many to have virtual, on-line services or even worship outdoors, and possibly what some church leaders are saying back to governors or local officials who have banned either all services or have … Continue reading What Christians Might Learn from the Scourge of COVID-19?
