Three Miracles in One

Ours is a supernatural faith built around three personal miracles. Our faith commences with a miracle. We come into the kingdom by a miraculous new birth (John 3:3).

Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman, the DC Sniper, and the Importance of Fathers

Like many basketball junkies deprived of March Madness and the NBA playoffs, I devoured ESPN’s ten-part series “The Last Dance,” the definitive account of one of the NBA’s G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time), Michael Jordan. Anyone who watched the emergence of the Bulls in the 1990s knew that Jordan’s talent and athleticism were matched only byContinue reading “Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman, the DC Sniper, and the Importance of Fathers”

It’s Time to Shed Light on the Cult of Darwinism

As much as I despise the cancel culture, if there is any cultural icon who deserves to be cancelled for racist attitudes, it is Charles Darwin. Or were you not aware of how his ideas helped fuel the fires of eugenics? I tweeted a poll on June 23, asking, “Who said this? The ‘western nations of Europe …Continue reading “It’s Time to Shed Light on the Cult of Darwinism”

Cutting Off Our Own Fingers

Is Society Dragging Itself to Chaos?

On July 8, 1741, Jonathan Edwards, famed pastor and theologian of colonial America, delivered one of his most famed messages of all-time at a church in Enfield, Connecticut.

EVERY BLACK LIFE MATTERS (BUT I WON’T SUPPORT BLM)

Every black life is valuable and precious. There are no exceptions. Thus, I can’t support the organization Black Lives Matter. Let me explain. Many of my black friends have told me that the phrase “black lives matters” is powerful because it draws attention to the historical fact that black lives have not been valued equallyContinue reading “EVERY BLACK LIFE MATTERS (BUT I WON’T SUPPORT BLM)”

‘My Fellow Americans: Race Is Not What Is Dividing Us

My fellow-Americans, we are being sold a bill of goods. Race is not what is dividing us. Rather, we are being divided by competing ideologies. Let us put our focus where it belongs. Listening to the news, you would think that racism is deeply entrenched in every neighborhood in our country.
