Fertility Is Not A Disease

The sexual revolution has so altered the worldview of many that we now often treat fertility as a disease. For women, fertility has ruined careers, holds the glass ceiling in place, and, before the technology was invented to end its tyrannical reign, it even kept women from fulfilling their purpose in life by forcing them to neglect their careers and devote time to nurturing their families. Thankfully, to the secular mind, science has overcome this atrocity, but are we looking for fulfillment in the wrong places?... CLICK TO READ MORE

Twitter Anger and the Righteousness of God

If we are not angry about something today, then it seems we must lack virtue. How could the cultural dialogue surrounding gender, sexuality, abortion, racism, and countless other issues not lead to anger? You would almost have to be dead inside or extremely apathetic not to be triggered by these things. The problem is that the majority of our anger is not godly. It is contrary to the righteousness of God... CLICK TO READ MORE

Social Media: A Downgrade of Culture

If high culture is like a gourmet meal, folk culture like a homecooked dinner, and pop culture is like junk food, what is social media? We live in a culture that is quick to accept something simply because it is popular. Today, we often consider a cultural expression a "classic" simply because millions of people like it, … Continue reading Social Media: A Downgrade of Culture

The Problem with Church is Not Femininity

When we call the sloppy sentimentalism that has overrun many churches “feminine,” we do a disservice to Godly women everywhere. Over the past 15 to 20 years, there has been no shortage of people claiming the church has become soft and ineffective because it has become feminine. This tactic was a favorite of Mark Driscoll, but Driscoll … Continue reading The Problem with Church is Not Femininity

Prosperity Preaching is Shallow

This past Sunday, Rob Golding of First Artesia CRC, pointed out that not only is health and wealth preaching false, but it is also shallow. God's plan may involve suffering, poverty, illness, and a host of other hardships, but it is infinitely better than worldly prosperity. Take a listen to this short clip and be … Continue reading Prosperity Preaching is Shallow

Virtue Signaling our Spirituality

We live in a culture that loves to virtue signal, and we, as Christians, are not immune. “Virtue signaling” is a pejorative term applied to people who say or do things with the primary motive of making themselves look virtuous. The person who does so is attempting to increase their social status. They try to conceal the fact … Continue reading Virtue Signaling our Spirituality

Self-Help Goes to Church

There is a commonplace religion that invites its followers to do the exact opposite of what Jesus taught. It is a religion of self-help, and it likes to go to church. We see it in many of the popular manifestations of cultural “Christianity.” It has a thin veneer of truth but lacks the substance. It gives lip service … Continue reading Self-Help Goes to Church

Social Media’s Anger Problem

Most people are quick to admit that they rarely spend time on social media without something ruffling their feathers, and this should be expected. Research shows that posts that cause anger are more likely to be shared, liked, or commented on than any other kind of post. This is why, as Psychology Today reports, “Users with more radical … Continue reading Social Media’s Anger Problem

Profanity and the Gospel

Profanity is becoming more and more mainstream, but its constant use defiles us more than most people realize. Cursing only has one practical use. The act of being boorish has a way of waking people up when they have stopped paying attention. Using a swear word does have the effect of making people snap out … Continue reading Profanity and the Gospel
