MORE THOUGHTS ON WATCHING THE JAMES FOLEY BEHEADING VIDEO

Earlier today I wrote a blog entitled, “Should I Watch the James Foley Beheading Video?” It was a question many people were asking, which is evidenced by the dialogue I received via social networks and private messages, as well as the traffic that reached the post from Google searches looking for the actual video. The blog wasn’t written […]

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 […]

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 […]

A FEW THOUGHTS ON MESSING WITH ISRAEL

Many years ago God provided three metaphors to the prophet Zechariah concerning what would happen to those who attempted to remove the Jews from their land. Each metaphor reveals a frightening picture of what life looks like when you antagonize God through those whom he calls the apple of his eye. While the metaphors contextually concern […]

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 […]

REMEMBERING DR. JAMES BRYANT OF CRISWELL COLLEGE

I learned yesterday that beloved Criswell College professor, Dr. James Bryant, passed away. Death is always a sad experience, but as believers we know that we have the great hope of the resurrection (1 Cor 15:16-19). Moreover, we know that when we are absent from the body, we are present with the Lord (2 Cor […]

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, […]
