The Power of a Statue

In ligt of the recent events in Charlottesville, VA and other racially-charged events across our country, coupled with the election of Donald Trump (whom some deem a racist), much talk has been made in regards to removing Confederate statues. Now, I get it. Some people see those statues, I’m sure, and think to themselves (and ...

Lives Matter 1

Over the last few days we’ve seen 2 black men shot by white police officers and several police officers gunned down in Dallas, TX. I would venture to say there has been way more violence than these 3 instances, but these tragedies have made national headlines. We see the chants of “Black Lives Matter” (or ...

Be Who You Were Created to Be 1

Psalm 139:13-14 says: For you created my inmost being;     you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made… At our recent trip to the Outcry Tour, Brian Houston, the lead pastor of Hillsong Church, was the main speaker.

States’ Rights and Public Schools 1

The 10th Amendment to the US Constitution states the following: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The latest controversy to come down the pike in the good old US of A is the issue of Target stores opening up their bathrooms for “gender-identified” use. In other words, you are welcome to use the restroom with which you identify.  See the statement from Target. I have concerns regarding this policy, but I ...

Some Solutions for the “ACM” 3

In my last post, The Anti-Church Movement, I gave some observations on what I perceive to be an “Anti-Church” movement within the Church. I won’t go into all the details here – you can read them in the other post. Prompted by a comment (thanks, David!) I’m writing this post in hopes to come propose some ...

Net Neutrality 

As you may or may not know, the FCC voted 3-2 in favor of Net Neutrality this week, a plan to keep the Internet free and open. Proponents say the ruling will ensure that companies like Comcast and Verizon can’t create specialized Internet “fast lanes” where they could charge more for faster access to services ...

The World vs. George Zimmerman 9

We’re less than 12 hours since the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman verdict. I wish now I could hop in my TARDIS and go back in time to follow the case more closely from the beginning, but I can’t. I feel like I missed a TON of crucial information and misinformation. Misinformation. That’s my ...

Same Love

So, if you listen to Top 40 radio, chance are you’ve heard Mackelmore’s newest song – The Same Love. It’s a lyrically interesting song, for sure. And Mac, if I may refer to him as such, makes some good points. We’re all God’s children Stereotypes are bad Preaching hate, especially from the pulpit, is always ...
