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...

That Our Sons Might Be Good Men

Do something.  Build something.  Improve something.  This bundle of impulses lies at the heart of manhood.  And if you don’t understand that, you don’t yet understand manhood.   And our culture doesn’t understand manhood.   It doesn’t understand why it exists, what is good about it, or who possesses it.  I read an article today...

A Tick On the Clock

If none of the things you want most out of life could be resolved by Jesus coming back, your heart is not calibrated correctly.   Your heart was designed to commune with God.  It’s in God that you can have the peace and hope and joy that you thirst for.  And when the Son of God returns...

You Won’t Get It With Feminism

Our culture does not encourage men to marry, have lots of children, and then lead those families in sacrificial love.  Because of that, our society is filled with men who are not pressured to control their sinful sexual impulses and instead enjoy romance and sex with one woman in faithful marriage for their entire lives....

He Loves Kids, So Should We

One of the indicators of how much you love God is how much you love what God loves. And God loves children. And God blessed them. And God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds... Continue Reading →

60 Seconds On Men

We live in a culture that is desperately confused on what manhood is and on what to do with men.  "Here are these creatures designed with a modicum of strength and resolve, designed to generally need a helpmate to support them, a helpmate for them to sacrifice for and lead...  Hmm...  Well, we can't accept that..."...

Love and Hate

   I've been thinking recently about the self-involved, gossipy, materialistic rhythms of the world.  My own heart starts to churn that stuff out when I'm not careful, too, and those closest to me pay the price.  And I think that it's fair, Biblically, to call all that stuff hate.  All the backbiting, the obsession with...

This Girl America 

   I was in line for coffee behind a girl, and we got to talking pleasantries as we waited. I asked her her name. "America," she said.   "How old are you?" "About 250." "You look pretty rough, even for 250, if you don't mind my saying so." "Yeah," she said.  "I've had some trying... Continue Reading →
