The Overhauling of the Straight Presbyterian Church in America?

A published strategy from 1987 for making homosexuality acceptable among mainstream Americans.

“When conservative churches condemn gays, there are only two things we can do to confound the homophobia of true believers. First, we can use talk to muddy the moral waters. This means publicizing support for gays by more moderate churches, raising theological objections of our own about conservative interpretations of biblical teachings, and exposing hatred...

Equality = Legal Persecution Of Christians?

By excluding any religious consideration of sexual morality, the federal Equality Act would impose on an entire culture the unhealthy lifestyle of homosexual and transgender sexuality.

If it is passed by the Senate, the Equality Act will amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fair Housing Act of 1968 by adding to the categories protected by anti-discrimination laws “sexual orientation and gender identity” (SOGI). This new social category of LGBTQ rights would join categories such as race and religion,... Continue Reading

Social Justice vs the Gospel’s Liberty of Conscience

A letter from one PCA member to other PCA members urging that we live in the full freedom of our identity in Christ.

So, I plead with my brothers and sisters in Christ, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery” (Gal 5:1). Social Justice philosophically is a yoke of slavery which binds the conscience of believers.   Dear Fellow Brothers and... Continue Reading

Abortion and Eugenics

This case highlights the fact that abortion is an act rife with the potential for eugenic manipulation.

In the Supreme Court’s May 28 decision in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, the Court declined to review an Indiana law prohibiting abortions on the basis of race, sex, or disability. Justice Clarence Thomas’s concurring opinion, excerpted below, describes the connections between abortion advocacy and eugenics, and the ways in which abortion is... Continue Reading

The Religious Significance of Androgyny Part 2

Jung suggested that homosexuality preserved an archetype of the androgynous original person. That is why homosexuals can propose themselves to society as “shamans.”

Clearly God is interested in sex, or Satan would not be so passionately committed to its deconstruction. To destroy God’s created structures, the Evil One rips from the body politic the sexual distinctions hard-wired into creation to recall the deep truth about existence-the absolute distinction between the Creator and creation. The attack on these structures... Continue Reading

What I Think We’re Missing in Philippians 1:19-26

Love motivated him to bring others into this treasure rather than keeping it all to himself.

Why has the Spirit of God inspired Paul to “think out loud” here? What’s he doing? Why give them his conundrum? Because Paul is modeling for us here. Consider Philippians 1:9-11. This is Paul’s prayer for the church at Philippi. He is praying that they’ll have a grounded love so that they will choose what... Continue Reading

Is Yoga Religious? Yes!

The practice of a religion, in this case yoga, will invariably promote that religion, in this case, the religion of Hinduism.

In closing just remember that yoga means union instead of separation. It has an intrinsic and inseparable relationship to Hinduism. Again, there is no Hinduism without yoga and no yoga without Hinduism. This becomes more understandable when you think of yoga as the way of salvation in Hinduism.   Last year the Governor of Alabama... Continue Reading

The Failure of ‘the Gospel’?

The gospel not only promises forgiveness, but also changes our heart. We are not the same people when we are ‘in Christ.’

Owning the label implies that we do not expect heart change. The thinking is that we can control our actions, but we can’t control who we are. But this strikes at the heart of the true gospel, which does not just promise forgiveness, but also changes our heart. We are not the same people when... Continue Reading

Population Explosion or Population Bust: Is there a Biblical Approach?

The U.S. birthrate has dropped to 1.7 children per woman; as a matter of cultural health, what does it say about a generation that fails to reproduce itself?

Notice that the Scripture never records an incident of children being a curse, only a blessing. The curse is associated with the denial of children, or their destruction. It is true that they can be inconvenient. Sometimes, I wonder which one of my five progeny has my vehicle. I know I drove it into work.... Continue Reading

An Open Letter to the PCA Missouri Presbytery

Neither I nor the other signatories sinned in the manner we handled and expressed our concerns.

Thank you for your concern over my spiritual well-being. I say this because I was one of the signatories of a letter addressed to the Memorial PCA Session, along with 32 other PCA Ruling and Teaching Elders, from a number of presbyteries, that expressed their concerns about the significant role the Memorial Session played in...
