Universal Trouble in American Churches

April 30, 2018

Folks we have a problem of biblical proportions in our midst and most people haven’t noticed. Let me give you a few examples. All are true because I know the people personally.

Last week, I took a roadtrip to Ogden Utah to see the middle child. Along the way I had a few ideas that might end up being blog topics but I thought I’d jot down some thoughts that I had. First, Elon Musk is a fraud.  As soon as you depart the once Golden State […]

Hawking Death

March 16, 2018

A few days ago, Stephen Hawking died. To me, Hawking was just a guy in a wheelchair that suffered from an illness. For some reason he seems to many in pop-culture a successor to Carl Sagan. The only thing both men seem to have in common was a disdain and hatred for organized religion—especially Christianity […]

This article is an attempt to be serious about a serious subject that happens to be about pop-culture which is hard for me to take seriously.

February 8, 2018

Bob Dylan released a track on his Grammy winning Slow Train Coming album called Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking but I’m not sure the article below is what he had in mind. At first glance you might think this is the prison version of My Fair Lady but we are not talking about which […]

Review: The Last Jedi

December 30, 2017

Note: This review contains spoilers as well as commentary that you won’t read anywhere else. J.J. Abrams has done for Star Wars the same thing he did to Star Trek; namely, burn the franchise to the ground  and substitute a different worldview in its place. Unfortunately, while the grittier sandbox looks better in CGI, the […]

When Baptism Doesn’t Count

December 14, 2017

Today’s blog is one of several that I’ve been intending to write over the last several weeks but now that my finals are behind me, I have time to get caught-up. There’s an old tale about some folks dying and upon arriving in Heaven, they are given the introductory tour of their new home by […]

When the Gospel is Not Enough

November 18, 2017

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2: 2 Introduction Whether ancient or modern, Christians claim that we all need to come to Jesus. Furthermore, while church membership does not save you, most bodies expect that you will affiliate with a group of believers once you […]
