Each church body is just looking for a sin which they don’t feel guilty of so they can be superior, as if God is a bear and we must simply outrun our comrades to escape being consumed in the flames of Hell that inhabit the mouth of God. Continue reading

Because you can hear it’s cry
If there were a fire and in the fire there was one baby and a crate of a hundred fertilized embryos, which would you save if you could only save one? Meant to be inflammatory, this question has stuck with me for several weeks because it shines a light on the truth. We would save … Continue reading
In the Wake of Purity Culture: The Fall of Joshua Harris
There is a trend in progressive Christianity that I don’t quite understand. It seems to have a very defined culture but it’s source seems elusive. Its the deconstruction and reconstruction part of the movement. I don’t know that it is a movement, but I’ll call it one because it seems to be such to me. … Continue reading
If she does not struggle, does it also follow that she is not held?
The show The Handmaid’s Tale has revived interest in the somewhat prophetic novel. It has such depth and scope and covers so many relevant issues that we are facing right now. To me, one of the most fascinating and important, but also difficult to swallow is the dynamic experience of rape throughout the show. We … Continue reading

For the love of God, no cake for you!
This whole cake baking thing is going to be as slogan-ed as ‘Joe the Plumber’. I fear we’ll never hear the end of it. “Why should I have to bake a cake if I don’t want to?!” “It’s against my religion to bake you a cake!” If you have been reading my thoughts on homosexuality … Continue reading
You break, you buy; and not with lives. My thoughts on Ebola, ISIS, and Police Brutality.
You know what’s funny? I never once thought…’I should shoot her. That would stop this from happening.’ And that doesn’t make me a hero! I promise you, that is the very least I could do. Continue reading
God is Dead: The sermon I’d never heard before
When the whole Duck Dynasty thing happened, a church in our area put itself on my radar by titling their Sunday sermon: “Duck Dynasty: The Separation of Church and Hate.” Ever since then I’ve wanted to go and see what the church was like. Last Sunday we tried it out. It turns out that the … Continue reading
A Simple Question about Abortion
I watched this video and then I decided to do my own question asking on the subject. My family are quite conservative politically. All of them would say that abortion is murder and it should be made illegal. And since I love making things extremely uncomfortable at family gatherings, I decided to ask them a … Continue reading
GOD sees the heart! You are not God, so you don’t.
I am SOO incredibly tired of people telling me that certain people weren’t saved. Like Gandhi. I don’t know about you but it’s above my pay grade to decide whether or not he came a “saving knowledge of Christ.” In fact, I think it’s above my pay grade to decide the definition of a saving … Continue reading
