Every Cell, Every Day. Psalm 139

I think the trajectory of our lives could radically change if we learned the lessons of Psalm 139. Among other things in this beautiful Psalm, we learn that God is sovereign over every one of our days, and over our very creation. God is attentive over “when I sit down and when I rise up.”...

(Even More) Ideas Have Consequences

Some of us may be old enough to remember when Bill Clinton was christened our “first postmodern president.” It wasn’t a compliment. President Clinton often had a touch-and-go relationship with the truth, and when caught in a lie, was willing to squeeze his way out of a pinch by stretching all credulity. I guess that...

The Demonism of Karl Marx

Richard Wurmbrand , Marx and Satan, (Bartlesville OK , Living Sacrifice Book Company), 143 pgs. Was Karl Marx a Satanist? And I don’t mean, was he merely evil or acquainted with the devil?

I am Insufficient to the Task

Some Sundays after the service, I feel grateful and energized. Some days I feel like I need to retreat to my office and take a nap. Some days I feel like I need a punching bag. Recently I have taken up the habit of reading either a prayer (currently out of Piercing Heaven) or soaking... Continue Reading →

We should be aware of at least the outline of his life – his time as a soldier, his political disagreements with the Soviet Union, his artistry, his imprisonment by the Soviet Union in the Siberian gulags, and his exile...

Letter To My Church On Racism

A friend recently reminded me of this letter I wrote to our congregation in the wake of the protests and death at Charlottesville, VA, 2017. It struck me as something still relevant and important. Letter to LHC After Charlottesville, VA Heather and I have been on vacation trying to “unplug” a bit, but, unfortunately, it... Continue Reading →

Faithfulness In A New Public Square

For a while now, I have been telling anyone who cares to hear that several fundamental shifts are taking place in our culture. The differences that exist between Christians and non-Christians, and even sometimes between professing Christians, are no longer non-political or matters of amicable disagreement. We no longer have the shared values that have... Continue Reading →

Relativism Is Tyranny

You may have noticed a trend when it comes to much of the Left-ward movement of our culture, especially during this year’s Pride Month. The politics and morality of the new sexual and political orthodoxies are, shall we say, inflexible. I believe that what is happening in our culture might have started with ideas we...
