60 Seconds On Bad Environmentalism

There is a certain slice of the environmentalist pie that gives the impression that humanity is a plague. That's a problem. Among other things, you can't believe humanity is a plague and be loving. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons... Continue Reading →

It Ain’t All Money and Politics

A (very) lay historian's observation: Marxism most often sees people as victims caught in the machinery of economic forces; they can only be helped by government or revolution. A (not so very) lay Christian's observation: The Bible sees people as made in the image of a wonderful God who is sovereign over everything that happens... Continue Reading →

The Best Punch Is Knowing Who We Are
