Stop Acting Like Your Politics Can Make You Righteous

"I support more federal funding for education. And I support more federal and state funding for paid maternity leave." "I want the government to lower its taxation of its citizens. I want the government to protect the freedom of its citizens to educate their children and be entrepreneurial and own firearms." "I want the rich... Continue Reading →

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 →

30 Seconds On Being Born

When I was born, I was full of disobedience and selfishness and fear. I did the wrong things because I loved the wrong things. And a man can't change what he loves all on his own. Title of chapter 1 of my biography: Conceived in sin, born sinning. A really miraculous thing about the news... 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 →

A Foolish Transgender Ruling

Last week, a visiting Juvenile Court judge in Hamilton County ruled in favor of parents losing custody of their 17-year-old.  The reason?  They would not allow their minor child to pursue transgender surgeries and therapies at Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati.   A quote from Judge Hendon and the article:   The family would have been best served...

This Man Deserves It

 For all his fornications, he is guilty.  For his selfish manipulations and lusts, every teenage violation of his future wife, he is unquestionably guilty.  For all of his anger, his petty hatreds and grudges (which he so often carries deep under his skin, where he thinks no one can see), he is guilty.  The...
