To Be Like Gods

In Genesis, the Serpent said that when we eat of the fruit of the tree, our eyes will be opened to the knowledge of both good and evil. We will have the knowledge and become as gods. It is not enough to be made in the image and likeness of God, but we must actually [...] [...]

The Fallacy of Youthful Indiscretion

If there is one message our world, our culture, tells children and young adults, it’s “yes, you can.” Yes, you can get hopped up on beer every night during college, and then leave those “youthful indiscretions” behind as you get older. “Yes, you can,” hook up with various sexual partners throughout your early life, trying [...] [...]

Little Green Book Thinking

On the 10th of September, the President of the United States stood in front of a camera and read the words on his teleprompter. His teleprompter told him to say: Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been [...] [...]

Seventh Day Thinking

Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. [...] [...]

Friday the 29th Leftovers

No, no-one will ever be forced to celebrate a homosexual wedding if they don’t want to. They might be forced to accommodate one, but being forced to participate? No way. So long as they’re willing to pay $13,000 for the privilege of not participating, that is. There’s absolutely nothing in the world like telling your kids [...] [...]

In 2008, a sociologist decided to study Christian men who reserved sex for marriage. After contacting, and integrating herself into, a group of Christian men, she interviewed them on a regular basis to understand their social structures and how they felt about sex both before and after marriage. You’ll never guess what she discovered. First she [...] [...]

Inside or Outside the Box?

Outside the Box. Have you ever thought about what this term really means? Just about everyone puts it on their resume, of course (I just checked mine, and I must have removed it recently, because I remember putting it there). And what is this box we’re so concerned about thinking “outside” of? As Mallard Filmore has [...] [...]

Mine!

If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine! You do not take what is mine! And I’m going to punch you in the face and push you in the dirt because this is the teachers’! These are our [...] [...]

A Perception Driven World

You may have seen this video of Israeli Soldiers shooting a poor kid in the leg, and then laughing about it. Later images in the narrative include the kid in the hospital with his leg in a cast, and then discharge papers for the kid leaving the hospital. It all sounds watertight, right? An Israeli [...] [...]
