Planned Parenthood & Fatherless America

First off, we should be incredibly grateful for the momentum that is building against the Planned Parenthood witchdoctors. The dam is beginning to crack, and though we can expect enormous resistance and pushback from the devotees, this is not a sign that we are losing, it’s a sign that we are truly a threat. When…

20 Questions About Resisting Obergefell

So then, my last post on the implications of Obergefell and the opportunities being given to us as Christians to hate sin and love sinners generated some good and reasonable questions worth following up on. Here are a few of those along with a few more of my own: 1. Are you saying Christians should…

The Great Avenger

Luke XIII: Lk. 3:10-20 Introduction One way to understand John’s announcement about “preparing the way of the Lord” is like the herald of a wedding. Just as God came like a hero to Israel in Egypt and married her, just as He had come for them in exile and redeemed His people, so John is…

They Can’t Get Away

Plenty has already been said about the baby organ harvesting of Planned Parenthood. For several good summaries and responses, I invite you to be suitably appalled and stirred up here, here, here, and here. But I want to pile on, and I want to encourage you to pile on in whatever ways God gives you….

How God Is Bringing Us Home

All Will Be Well

Psalm 2 says that when the rulers of the earth plot against God, He who sits in the heavens laughs. He holds them in derision, and thinks it’s the funniest thing. And Paul says that we who have believed in Jesus Christ and have been filled with His Spirit have been raised to sit with…

His Word Endures

Psalm 100 famously says: “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; and His mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.” So, in faith and obedience to this Word, we have come this morning. We have…

Glory on a Platter

One of the immediate conclusions that we must draw about the recent Obergefell decision is that the Lord is giving us this moment. He is giving this set of circumstances to us because He is our faithful and wise Father. He does not give us more than we can bear; He knows our frames. He…

Tradition With A Lisp

Perhaps one of the greatest attractions to the Eastern Orthodox tradition or the Roman Catholic Church is the claim to an authoritative interpretive tradition that cuts through all the different interpretations of the Bible. For example, a Roman Catholic acquaintance posted this from G.K. Chesterton yesterday: “The Bible by itself cannot be a basis of…

Our Rebellious American Wife

One of the things we need to recognize is that it is not at all an accident that the very judicial ruling which overturns the will of the people as expressed in the constitutions of the 30 states is also simultaneously a ruling of sexual confusion. The deep, laugh-your-head-off irony of the ruling is the…
