GOD’S VOICE Conference: A Biblical Response to the Queering of the Church

GOD'S VOICE Conference, being held on February 22-23, will bring biblical clarity to the recent confusion surrounding the issues of "re-voiced" sexuality and "LGBTQ+ Christians."

Why is the radical and progressive language of LGBTQ+ activism being embraced by a historically conservative and confessional denomination like the PCA? Who is enabling this message? And what are LGBTQ+ activists’ long-term goals for undermining and changing the doctrine of biblically faithful Christianity on all things LGBTQ+?   The GOD’S VOICE Conference: A Biblical...

The Sweet Spot of Reformedish Kingdom Theology (or why 2k looks R)

What if being culturally engaged was not about being on the right side of social and political reforms…but about suffering through and enduring an evil age?

What if being culturally engaged was not about being on the right side of social and political reforms, with the banner of Christ held high, but about suffering through and enduring an evil age (Gal 1:4). I understand that when Jesus said, “If you were of the world, the world would love you as its... Continue Reading

Do All Black and White Christians Need to Reconcile?

We “Ain’t Got Long to Be Here”

American Christians—black and white—must confront a national history that involves good and evil.  Black and white Christians should be among the first to recognize the universality of the effects of the fall on human history—good and evil compete in every race, ethnicity, nation, or continent.  Depravity is universal and deeply engrained in the human race...

An Open Letter to Ralph Northam, Governor of the State of Virginia

An Open Letter to Ralph Northam, Governor of the State of Virginia, subordinate to the Ruler and Head of all nations, Jesus Christ.

I am writing to you to express my grave concern regarding your recent comments on a local talk show. When asked if you supported Delegate Kathy Tran’s HB 2491 bill, which loosens the restrictions on third-trimester abortions, you unashamedly said, “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be... Continue Reading

What Is Wrong With Gay Christianity? What Is Side A and Side B Anyway?

Side A and Side B both support the idea that sexual orientation is an accurate category of personhood, and therefore they both are outside the bounds of biblical teaching.

We must maintain that we who repent and believe stand in robes of righteousness as beloved sons and daughters of God, even as we do daily battle with any and all sexual lust and unbiblical desire that claims our affections.  We are not our sin, and we ought never to let it define us.  ...

Play the Man You Are

Gender identity and gender expression are about God’s glory and about maintaining the God-created distinctions on earth that in turn point to the ultimate distinction between God and his bride.

All around us, mountains of God’s glory carved into the landscape of his world are eroding. Homosexuality and egalitarianism flatten distinctions between husbands and wives. Androgyny and effeminacy flatten vital sex expressions between men and women. But God made us distinctly male and female, and gave Eve to Adam (not vice versa), because he already...

Not Killing Babies Must Be a Moral Priority

The pro-choice siren has seduced its victims for decades using the melody of “women’s health,” but now we can see that she seduces only unto death, not health.

This is how moral priorities shift. Abortion has always been immoral, even evil. But as long as it was an argument in the abstract – safely out of sight, sound, touch, and smell – it was too tempting and too easy for too many people to ignore its reality. The recent law in New York,... Continue Reading

Ungovernable

We are witnessing signs of a deliberate attempt to Islamicize the USA, with all that means for public policy, foreign relations and religious coherence.

The ultimate incoherence stems from two opposing notions of God: either the personal Creator, Father and Savior God of Scripture or the impersonal, unknowable God of Islam. The Declaration of Independence presupposes a personal Creator who endows creatures with “personal rights,” including the right to “life,” reflecting his own life, which we know from Scripture...

On Subjective Emotion and Objective Truth

When meaning is found in subjective emotion instead of objective truth, it’s no wonder the frauds will create passion from the banal.

When meaning is found in subjective emotion instead of objective truth, it’s no wonder the frauds will create passion from the banal. It doesn’t matter if the passion is based on real truth; they will have received their fix, and feverishly continue their eternal quest of internal fulfillment, with no regard to the casualties they...

Social Justice and the Problem of Evil

One reason social justice Christians do not raise questions about the goodness of God may be that they conceive of systemic evil as a problem similar to indwelling sin within a believer.

In other words, the remedy for a system of evil in the world is sanctification. This is akin to social justice Christians plan for eliminating injustice. You stand and fight against the system. And if structural evil is systemic the way that spiritual warfare is pervasive, then the remedy for both is through growth in... Continue Reading
