Media completely clueless about what Gloria Copeland means when she says ‘Jesus Himself gave us the flu shot’

You know they don’t have the slightest interest in this story if not for the fact that they can label her a “Trump evangelical adviser.” Political media don’t typically go around covering what preachers say about random subjects because there’s nothing they care about less. But when they do, their motivation is usually – and … Continue reading Media completely clueless about what Gloria Copeland means when she says ‘Jesus Himself gave us the flu shot’

On the loose in Philadelphia: A spirit of debauchery (and yes, we’re talking a real demon, friends)

Debauchery is usually defined as self-indulgence of a sensual nature, but it can also refer to any sort of unrestrained exhibit of out-of-control nihilism. But before debauchery becomes a behavior, it first operates as a demonic spirit. What we saw in Philadelphia on Sunday night was a stunning example of how such spirits can operate … Continue reading On the loose in Philadelphia: A spirit of debauchery (and yes, we’re talking a real demon, friends)

Aw: Author of ‘Slutever’ blog laments how awkward it is to discuss her writing with her parents

Her name is Karley Sciortino, and I don’t think I’m exaggerating if I say there are basically no boundaries whatsoever to her sex life. I suppose she might protest that she doesn’t engage in rape, incest or pedophilia, but that’s about it. And not only does she explore every carnal desire of her flesh, she … Continue reading Aw: Author of ‘Slutever’ blog laments how awkward it is to discuss her writing with her parents

Episcopal Diocese of Washington D.C. bans use of male pronouns to refer to God

Ze will have to get used to it, I guess. If you think this is crazy, understand there are radicals in this bunch who don’t think it went far enough. There’s a pastor there who somehow discerns from Genesis 17 that God has breasts: According to LifeSiteNews, the resolution called for an end to “gendered language for God” … Continue reading Episcopal Diocese of Washington D.C. bans use of male pronouns to refer to God

LGBTQ activists pretty excited Josh Weed is getting divorced, rejects idea that Christ can deliver you from same-sex fleshly desire

Nothing excites the enemies of the cross more than when a professing believer in Christ falls morally, except maybe when that same fallen Christian claims to have realized as a result that biblical truth was wrong all along. The story of Josh Weed appears to fit that template to a T. This was a guy … Continue reading LGBTQ activists pretty excited Josh Weed is getting divorced, rejects idea that Christ can deliver you from same-sex fleshly desire

Pastor Joe Thorn says it’s not really possible for Christians to achieve perfect holiness; I have a quibble with that

My quibble is mainly on the margins. I absolutely agree with Joe Thorn‘s assertion that the only real holiness comes through Christ working in us, and not from our trying harder. And I agree with him when he says sin follows us everywhere we go (remember, sin is a willful spiritual creature), so we will … Continue reading Pastor Joe Thorn says it’s not really possible for Christians to achieve perfect holiness; I have a quibble with that

CNN: Hey, listen to the experts and watch as your spouse has sex with someone else; it’ll turn you on

If you’re not familiar with the concept of “cuckolding,” it’s probably because you’re a reasonably sane, well-adjusted person who doesn’t waste his or her time getting “news” from places like CNN. I hate to bring it to your attention, but it does us no good to pretend cultural trends are not what they are. Remember: … Continue reading CNN: Hey, listen to the experts and watch as your spouse has sex with someone else; it’ll turn you on

Um no, John Pavlovitz, you’re wrong when you lecture white evangelicals about ‘why people are done with you’

John Pavlovitz is a former Christian pastor who seems to still be trying to figure out what he believes, and there’s no shame in that. He’s close to my age, and his side of the story is that in 2013 a megachurch fired him because he “didn’t fit in.” (I wonder what their side of … Continue reading Um no, John Pavlovitz, you’re wrong when you lecture white evangelicals about ‘why people are done with you’

When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear. Though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me. – Psalm 27:2-6
