Biblical Identity Meets Gender

Everyone wants to be special, set apart and significant.  One of the ways this manifests itself in our culture is through the concept of gender identity.  This is a real issue that many people struggle with in our society and should be taken seriously. However, it has also become a social trend. For instance, a … Continue reading Biblical Identity Meets Gender

Of Truth and Empathy

Have you ever had an interaction with someone that left you speechless?  It goes something like this: “I just don’t think that’s right.” “Are you serious?  Wow… Aren’t you supposed to be Christian?  Show some empathy or compassion, isn’t that what Jesus would do!?” Pick the topic – abortion, eternal life, race, identity and a … Continue reading Of Truth and Empathy

Confronting Homosexuality in a Culture of Identity (Part 2)

Previously, we looked at the dichotomy between what it means to declare homosexual activity a sin and how those who believe in Christian orthodoxy deal with it.  We addressed the current cultural movement’s roots and introduced the idea of identity into the argument. It was necessary to do this so that we can have a … Continue reading Confronting Homosexuality in a Culture of Identity (Part 2)

Critical Theory as a Hermeneutic

In December of 2019, I graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy from a secular university.  At this secular university, I was immersed in ideas such as critical theory and Marxism, since these views dominated the Philosophy Department.  Having become fascinated in philosophy through a crisis of faith that led me to Christian apologetics in high … Continue reading Critical Theory as a Hermeneutic

Critical Theory vs Critical Thinking

Social justice. That sounds great! After all, who would not want justice in the society in which they live? In fact, the Bible has so much to say about justice. Consider a few examples in Scripture beginning with the Old Testament. Proverbs 18:5 — It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice … Continue reading Critical Theory vs Critical Thinking

Star Wars and Worldview: The Greatest Guide in the Galaxy!

Updated: May 4, 2021 When we aren’t discussing theology, apologetics, and worldview, we’re probably talking about one of our favorite things in the universe: Star Wars! We especially love finding ways to use Star Wars to discuss worldview issues. I’ve compiled a list of all of the resources we have on worldview and a galaxy … Continue reading Star Wars and Worldview: The Greatest Guide in the Galaxy!

Charlottesville (Pt. 2): The Strange Intersectionality Between Richard Spencer and Dr. Umar Johnson

In the first article of this mini-series, Charlottesville (Pt. 1): Of Blood and Soil, we explored the relationship between race and identity. I introduced the idea that the biblical worldview provides a more solid foundation for identity than one’s race. Our main premise was that the race-centric identity concept which in many ways define our … Continue reading Charlottesville (Pt. 2): The Strange Intersectionality Between Richard Spencer and Dr. Umar Johnson

Book Review: A Practical Guide to Culture by John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle

As a Christian father with young children, I’m always looking for resources to help me prepare my little ones for a post-Christian culture. Our society is filled with unbiblical – and even anti-Christian – ideas, and the thought of raising a child in such an environment is very daunting. That’s why I am thankful for … Continue reading Book Review: A Practical Guide to Culture by John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle

Stuff Atheists Say: Atheism Is a Lack of Belief

Welcome to the fourth – and LONG overdue – edition of my series Stuff Atheists Say. This is where I deconstruct some of the sillier slogans that some atheists use as conversation-stoppers with theists. (And if you haven’t checked out the first three yet, you can catch up here: part 1, part 2, part 3.) … Continue reading Stuff Atheists Say: Atheism Is a Lack of Belief

Book Review: The Story of Reality by Gregory Koukl

I’ve waited for this book for a long time. I’ve been listening to Greg Koukl – one of my personal apologetics heroes – on the Stand to Reason podcast for years and he would occasionally mention this book he was working on, The Story of Reality (originally entitled Credo). I had been (not so) patiently waiting for it … Continue reading Book Review: The Story of Reality by Gregory Koukl
