Gendered Piety

If you’re a man and you’ve attended an evangelical church, you’ve probably been uncomfortable with some of the customs, the music, the forms of worship, and even the style of the sermon. There’s something off about so much of it. My life, as much as I’m able, is oriented around God, and yet I struggle…

Reformed Humility

While most reformed people I read do their best to advocate for their theology, there’s a nasty tendency to advocate against the presumed character of their opponents. And not in the sense of overt sin or corruption, like suggesting that Islam is obviously false in part because it is bloodthirsty and cruel – as clearly…

Preston Sprinkle on Racism (Kind Of)

Below is an article from the miserable website The Gospel Coalition. All I’ve done is prune it a little and replace words about sexual sin with words about another sin (racial hatred) that will get you booted from your church in a heartbeat if you engage in it. Give it a read. See if it…

What ChatGPT Really Is

Not a full post from me today, but a full post from someone else must count for something. This was very good.

The Purpose of Doctrinal Statements

Almost a year ago, I wrote this piece arguing for a more precise system of organization doctrine. It seemed to me, and still does, that while beliefs like “murder is wicked sin” are obviously true to every genuine Christian – and while their denial would be strong evidence against belief – they don’t fit into…

Lazerus and Salvation

It’s a common trope in Calvinist thinking that the story of Lazerus rising from the dead is a picture of Salvation. On Calvinism, a man is dead before God regenerates him, and then he instantaneously has faith. Here’s the full story in John 11: Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village…

Egalitarianism vs Consistency

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28 Is it easier to be adopted or to change your sex? This isn’t a trick question. You can be adopted, and you can’t change your sex. When Paul uses the language in Galatians 3:28 that there is “neither … male…

Why Pray?

I read a post by a Calvinist recently that raised a question along the lines of: “What does praying to an Arminian God actually accomplish, since He can’t compel anyone to believe? Arminians pray like Calvinists when they pray for Salvation”. Calvinists don’t seem to realize that virtually everyone who isn’t a Calvinist also isn’t…

Christian Intellectual Circles

Aaron Renn raises this interesting question on Twitter: Responses range from Tim Keller to Douglas Wilson to CR Wiley to John Piper. What’s fascinating about this is that I came to dedicate my life to Christ because of Christian intellectuals, and none of them were listed anywhere. In particular, William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland…

Self Hatred

I wonder if the Apostle Paul was as relieved to realize his own Jewish people would be a minority in heaven. Seems like it may have clashed with his wish to trade his own salvation for that of his own people.
