Defending Justice from the Social Warriors

The year of 2017 in some ways could have been the year of the social justice warrior (SJW).

Often this is done on… Continue reading Defending Justice from the Social Warriors

The 10 Commandments and Justice

I’ve written several articles in relation to justice. It is one of the ideas that we currently fight over the most in our society. At the same time we can’t even agree on a basic definition of justice. This is one of the many ideas which has divided us today. I have defined justice as… Continue reading The 10 Commandments and Justice

Charity Triumphs Over Justice

In my blog  Defending Justice From the Social Warriors  I defined  justice. My base and simple definition: justice is people being able to own themselves and their possessions. In a follow-up article, Jesus Discusses Justice , I wrote how I believe Jesus taught this same definition of justice. The question automatically follows from those who do… Continue reading Charity Triumphs Over Justice

Jesus Discusses Justice

So many people see Jesus as some flower child walking around in the tall grass with sandals, a robe, and some stringed instrument. This emasculated version of Jesus is not only a perversion of who He is, but is often used as propaganda by many to defend their personal “beliefs.” One area often misunderstood is… Continue reading Jesus Discusses Justice

The Christian Heresy of Critical Theory Part II

This is a two-part series on the Christian heresy of critical theory. You can read part I here (link here). My contention is that critical theory is not just a dangerous ideology, but that it is Christian heresy. It attempts to replace God at multiple levels of Christian orthodoxy. The last post addressed the basic… Continue reading The Christian Heresy of Critical Theory Part II

A Discussion on Abortion Part 2

For the Non-Christian In a previous post I discussed the idea of abortion being a sin from a Christian perspective. This week my goal is to talk about abortion to the non-Christian. Christians plant their foundation of truth in Scripture, and it is the authority in their lives. For justice to be done on the… Continue reading A Discussion on Abortion Part 2

Root Sins: Part I Identifying Root Sins

For years I have had this nasty bush on the side of my house. It probably isn’t a bush, but it’s not a tree, whatever it is, it is nasty. I have chopped the thing down about every other year, and it always comes back. I’ve even got a little below the dirt, and all… Continue reading Root Sins: Part I Identifying Root Sins
