Starlight and Dawn

I want to enjoy my wife and my kids. They will only be my wife and my children here, on this earth, and only once. After my Jesus returns there were will be something much better and much more lasting, the solid reality of which marriage and parenting are simply good whispers. Then these blessings...

Home Education:  Do I Want Them Taught That?

One of the greatest powers the Christian church currently has at her disposal is the power to subvert the lies of our day.  Among them, that there is no Creator (or at least not One we need to worry much about), that there is no Judge (ditto), and that the only Savior is government.  Through...

Home Education:  Some Things I Teach My Kids

 I’m going to write a few posts on home education.  They won’t be intended to tell everyone everywhere that they shouldn’t send their kids to public school.  First of all, some people (single parents, for instance) may have to.  Secondly, I don’t think I could say that and be faithful to Christ’s Word.  There’s no...

Redemptive Manhood

Because it imitates the Lord, Godly manhood is inherently redemptive.   It reclaims.  It protects.  It builds.  It spends itself and risks itself on others. It will, if you don't mind my saying so, carry a cross.  A Godly man will use himself for the good of others.  A fleshly man will use others for... Continue Reading →

Why My Family Won’t Celebrate Halloween

   A couple of days ago my family and I were walking through Home Depot.  Towards the front of the store were some cartoonish inflatable Halloween decorations for a front lawn.  You probably know the type:  Graves, skeletons, tombstones with humorous inscriptions.  And as we walked away from them I felt strongly that I needed...
