I Can’t Love You and Tell You You’re Not a Man

I can't love you well while lying to you. I can't love you well by lying about God to you. He made you and He's good and you're a wonderful creation of His. And He's made you a man. There's beauty in that, startling beauty in this reality that the crafter of the earth chose... 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 →

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...
