This is our Holocaust

July 31, 2015

2

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

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 […]

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). […]

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 […]

Rioting in America if Mitt Romney Wins Election

November 5, 2012

10

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

29

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” […]

Why I’m NOT Voting for Mitt Romney (& with a clear conscience)

September 24, 2012

178

There was a time when I would have questioned someone’s patriotism or dedication to righteousness if they did not vote for the Republican candidate. I’ve only voted in three previous presidential elections, but I remember each time accusing other Christians of failing in their civic duty and Christian responsibility to “vote for the person Jesus […]
