Gender Dysphoria and the Gospel

Eventually, I could look in the mirror and smile at the person that I saw

I stopped asking the question, “Why did You make me this way?” One of the verses that God used was in Isaiah chapter 29: “Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or... Continue Reading

Officials have taken into custody more than 100 members and leaders of Early Rain Covenant Church in a crackdown that began Sunday night.

Li, the elder, asked the global church to pray for them and to continue spreading the word. “Pray that God would give us the courage and the strength to deal with this persecution,” he said. “That those [in detention] would be a good witness, and that the church members wouldn’t compromise, but instead … they...

The Minds of Black Folk

It was a recent Washington Post article, written by Vanessa Williams, a black woman, that recalled Du Bois’ “double consciousness” theory to my mind.

A black person can be just as guilty as anyone of providing the impetus for one’s adopting his thesis as a form of social orthopraxy. The article is Williams’ rather racist postmortem about why Democrat Stacey Abrams, a black woman, was narrowly defeated by Republican Brian Kemp, a white man.
