Philemon, Wilberforce, Abolition, and the Glory of God

September 14, 2015


Finishing up his series through Philemon yesterday, Pastor Jesse Johnson preached a message titled, “If God Is Sovereign, Why Work for Social Change?” This was an incredibly helpful sermon for me as for the last couple of years I have been working through the Christian’s role in the culture. Is there more to our responsibility […]

This is our Holocaust

July 31, 2015


I am having difficulty processing how anyone outraged by the Planned Parenthood videos, whether Christian or non-Christian, is still talking about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation. Folks, the babies you’ve seen butchered on the videos are 11-12 weeks. Supporting this bill of compromise would still allow for […]

Jesus, Friend of Starbucks Baristas and Patrons

March 18, 2015


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 […]

God Rules Over All Civil Magistrates

January 12, 2015


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


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). […]

Sam Waldron on Civil Authorities

October 8, 2014


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


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


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 […]

Rioting in America if Mitt Romney Wins Election

November 5, 2012


Dear Mr. Rioter, You don’t know me, but I’ve come to learn about you over the last few weeks. I’ve been following you on recent news reports where you have threatened to start a riot if Mitt Romney wins the 2012 U.S. Presidential election. I’ve noticed how infatuated you are with our current president, Barack […]

Mitt Romney’s Rape and Incest Exceptions for Abortion

October 10, 2012


A couple of weeks ago, I posted why I’m not voting for Mitt Romney (and with a clear conscience) this presidential election. In just two weeks, the article is the 6th most viewed article of all time here on airō, and the 4th most viewed this year. The article also has the most facebook “likes” […]
