Pastors in the Public Square

Is the call of God opposed to a Christian or a pastor being a public intellectual? One man on my Facebook page says that calling a pastor a public intellectual is an insult to the call of God. God does not need educated people to speak through them. This is the kind of anti-intellectualism I... Continue Reading →

Is it Deconstruction?

One of the more dynamic corners of the evangelical world right now can be found by searching for the hashtag, #deconstruction.

Philosophy Matters: Machines and Humans
