The book of Hebrews gives the following description of Christ when it encourages us to have faith: Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that…

The Black Lives Matter (TM) Marxist Revolution

As protests from Black Lives Matter (TM) move from declaring that “Black Lives Matter” to “Defund the Police” to tearing down statues, this may be difficult to comprehend. As I tried to explain before, there are certain tactics that are being used these days that involve lies. I wrote about how private individuals can use…

A Good Analogy of the Christian Trinity

If you haven’t seen this very important high-quality video about Bad Analogies the Christian idea of the Trinity, then you are missing out. I present it here for your edification: I remember watching this and feeling challenged to come up with an analogy that doesn’t break some heresy of the Christian church. And I think…

The George Floyd Series

To centralize the pieces I’ve written on George Floyd, Derek Chauvin, the three other officers involved in the arrest, Excited Delirium, the Medical Examiners’ reports, and anything else that might prove worth writing about, I’ve created this post for a central place to link to each of the issues. Feel free to share this link…

Why I Do Not Believe In “Systemic Racism”

The New Duties of Ordinary Citizens

This piece is the third in a series. This piece is a call to action for Citizens who wish to improve our country in these extraordinary times.

An Investigation of the Present Lying Enemy

This is the second post in a series. The last post urged the reader to be strong and courageous and not fear in the midst of these dangerous times. And knowing that we do not wage war against flesh and blood, I’d like to spend this time talking about how to kill the enemy, or…

A Series For Christians, Citizens, Brothers, and Riots

The last series of mine (here, here, here, here, and here) was perhaps the first time in my life that I have ever been absolutely and completely alone in my opinion about a very important matter. I’ve been alone in some things, but not like that. But from what I can tell from my stats…
