Embrace The Suck! The Gravitational Pull of Sin

Embrace The Suck! The Gravitational Pull of Sin

I apologize for the semi-vulgarity, but this has become something of a favorite phrase of mine of late. I guess it’s because life can so often seem so sucky to us. Things rarely go like we think we want them to, and even when they go like we think we want them to,...

Why I Love Hymns, And You Should, Too!

Why I Love Hymns, And You Should, Too!

I’m one of a rare breed, those who love hymns, and will only go to a church where hymns are sung. When we were younger and moved to a new state (which has happened four times), we would go church hunting. A couple times with my wife and kids in tow we walked into a...

God’s Amazing Goodness and My Apologetics315 Interview

I had an interview recently about my book with a website that has special meaning in my Christian journey,  Apologetics315. God, as he often does with his children, made this uniquely special for me as I'll explain. When I became a Christian at Arizona State...

The Beginning of Christian Nationalism: The Family

The Beginning of Christian Nationalism: The Family

Christians throughout history have had different ways of contending with this fallen world. On one end of the spectrum, you might have monks who completely isolate themselves from the world, while on the other millenarian apocalyptic fanatics who mean to usher in the...
