Jesus, Friend of Starbucks Baristas and Patrons

March 18, 2015

8

Breitbart dropped an article yesterday revealing how Starbucks baristas will “hassle” customers about race relations. The right-wing conservative in me wanted to jump on board the train of derision toward Starbucks for yet another publicity stunt in the politico-culture wars. However, I’m learning to beat down that unwelcomed part of my flesh – you know, the […]

Christian Submission vs Belligerent Discontentment Before Civil Authorities

February 5, 2015

35

My heart is grieved by the growing discontentment, hostility, and anarchist attitudes by those who profess the name of Jesus Christ in America. As our nation grows more hostile, American Christians must grow more patient, longsuffering, merciful, and compassionate. As American culture grows more belligerent, we must grow more eager to speak the truth in […]

God Rules Over All Civil Magistrates

January 12, 2015

1

There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine! I really appreciate the above quote from Dutch Reformer Abraham Kuyper as it sums up Christ’s reign – over everything. It’s similar to what Dr. RC Sproul has said: […]

The Law of Nature is the Law of God

January 2, 2015

8

After a brief “life” interlude, we now return to the series of articles addressing the Law of God and related topics. For the Christian, God’s Law is our rule of life. By grace alone, we love God’s Law and delight in it as it burdens us not (Psalm 1:2, 119:97; Romans 7:22; 1 John 5:3). […]

Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) and the Church Repent Project

December 5, 2014

Comments Off

Due to a number of inquiries about the disappearance of my articles on Abolish Human Abortions’s (AHA) Church Repent project, and a failed attempt to reason with two Abolish Human Abortion leaders, Russell Hunter and Alan Maricle (aka “Rhology“) from the Abolitionist Society of Oklahoma, I have decided to make the articles available for informational purposes. […]

Sam Waldron on Civil Authorities

October 8, 2014

19

I expect my next article on the topic of the Law of God to address Gentile governments and natural law, but as a prelude to that post, I thought it would be helpful to share some conclusions by Dr. Sam Waldron from his helpful lecture series, Theonomy: A Reformed Baptist Assessment. Dr. Waldron’s work is available […]

Thomas Schreiner on Theonomy

September 25, 2014

3

The last article on the subject of God’s Law served to be an introductory article to the series, providing a list of resources examining the manifestation of God’s Law under the Old and New Covenants. The primary purpose of this series is to study the definition and application of God’s Law for the Christian under […]

The Law of God, Theonomy, and Pacifism

September 9, 2014

37

Theonomy and pacifism are rearing their heads as the United States continues its efforts to build a coalition of nations to destroy the Islamic State. Two weeks ago I offered some recommendations for Christians in how we should be responding to the threat of IS and the impending war. While my position has found consensus with most […]

Three Key Points from the ‘Babies Are Murdered Here’ Documentary

January 22, 2014

6

Today is the 41st anniversary of Roe versus Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that has led to the slaughter of 55 million babies in four decades. Today is also the day of the highly-anticipated documentary, Babies Are Murdered Here. What began in 2013 and transitioned into a grassroots movement to call abortion what it […]

Monday Morning “Discernment” Quarterbacking: A Lesson on Grace

January 16, 2014

12

I just read a story and watched a video provided by the Christian Post about a 28 year old school teacher, Alicia Gray, who “plead guilty to charges of second-degree sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse and being a school employee who has had sexual contact with a student younger than 19, after she was charged last […]
