SHOULD I WATCH THE JAMES FOLEY BEHEADING VIDEO?

“Watch the video,” The Five’s Greg Gutfeld tells the American public, in reference to ISIS’ video of the beheading of American journalist James Foley. For Gutfeld, watching the video is a justified act because it can arouse a better understanding of the terror ISIS pledges against our country. I can’t help but wonder, however, as an American with no National Security credentials, […]

THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL ARTICLE I’VE EVER WRITTEN

The most controversial newspaper article I’ve ever written wasn’t on homosexuality, or abortion, or on the fashion faux pas of wearing white after labor day. It wasn’t on any of those issues at all. It was on, of all things, the age of dinosaurs. My advocation that dinosaurs are no more than ten thousand years old (in favor […]

ARE LIBERIAN AND MEXICAN SOULS LESS VALUABLE THAN AMERICAN SOULS?

In the August 6 edition of the Southern Baptists of Texas’ Digital Texan, an article named “52,000 Immigrant Children and the Call to Love Outsiders” appeared (originally published on erlc.com), coauthored by Criswell College’s Barry Creamer and Brandon Smith. The article encouraged Christians to sensitively consider that the border crisis is more of a people crisis […]

NINE THINGS MARK CUBAN TAUGHT ME ABOUT MINISTRY

Some years ago I read through Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, and then related some of the lessons I learned in a blog. I can honestly say the book greatly impacted my life, particularly the way I do ministry. After reading through Mark Cuban’s book, How to Win at the Sport of Business, I […]

WHY NO WOMAN HAS EVER “HAD AN ABORTION”

When describing an abortion, the most common phrase one uses is, “I had an abortion.” I actually had a girl tell me this on twitter some months ago during a #praytoendabortion trend, saying, “I had an abortion two weeks ago.” I’m not sure I like this phrase. In fact, I’m pretty sure I don’t like this phrase at all, not only […]

I’VE CHANGED MY MIND, SODOM IS ABOUT INHOSPITALITY

Matthew Vines, the self proposed “gay Christian,” in his book, God and the Gay Christian, argues that gay people in committed relationships is not ungodly or unbiblical. This is to say that Vines believes that it’s okay–biblically warranted even–to be homosexual, so long as you are in a monogamous relationship. His book argues this point by […]

SAVE THE CHEETAHS! (BUT SLAY THE CHILDREN)

’ll never forget an experience I once had in one of my pastorates in East Texas, an experience that highlights the illogical atrocity that is liberal thinking. In attempts to raise money for a Christian School associated with the church, one of our members raffled off a cow for butchering. After the raffle was over he took […]

DO DINOSAURS DISCOUNT THE BIBLE?

I don’t know about you, but, for me, one of the most intriguing subjects in the world is that of dinosaurs. I mean, who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Whether they are cute images on a baby’s footsy pajamas or vicious creatures slaughtering innocent civilians in Jurassic Park, dinosaurs offer something for everyone. (In this case, the loving parent or the emotionally […]

HOW I DO PREMARITAL COUNSELING

My most successful premarital counseling experience is what some might consider a failure. This is because, the day before the wedding, the couple I counseled decided not to marry. It was a very emotional decision for both individuals, one that did not come lightly. I consider it a success though, because the break up happened prior […]

The following is a review of the book in order to prepare you for what you might find in the movie. There’s a moment in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar when the Roman nobleman, […]
