Confronting Neopaganism in the Culture and in the Church Part 1 of 3

Many now believe that grounds for existence can only be found in the irrational, in the age-old metanarrative of pantheistic Oneism.

I am proposing to use two relatively neutral, descriptive terms, Oneism and Twoism, in order to avoid applying a narrow theological system that only a few of us could affirm. These terms seek to express the only two bedrock options found in Romans 1:25: either the worship and service of creation understood as closed, homogeneous... Continue Reading

Is a Particular Lived Experience Necessary?

Some voices are suggesting that unless you’ve experienced it yourself, you need to stop talking and start listening.

With the rise of the controversy surrounding the social justice movement, many people are demanding a particular lived experience résumé in order to grant certain people a voice into the issues and challenges facing us in our day. The idea is simple. If you haven’t lived and experienced what it means to be the subject... Continue Reading

Fighting for Our Children in a Transgender Age

Why we must help them understand God's good design.

It is now considered “standard practice” to treat gender-dysphoric children with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery. But is it really a good idea to turn children into lifelong medical patients? We are talking about powerful drugs with negative side effects, not to mention surgeries that amputate healthy body parts.    From a young age,... Continue Reading

Grievance Scholars Expose the Trojan Horse of Social Justice in Faith & Academics

The Grievance Studies affair, also referred to as the “Sokal Squared” scandal, was the fourteen-month investigative whistleblowing project.

The mission was to create bogus academic papers and submit them to academic journals in the areas of cultural, queer, race, gender, fat, and sexuality studies. The authors’ intent was to expose problems in “grievance studies,” a term they apply to a particular approach to studying these academic topics that proceed from a radical political...

The Number One Lie the World Tells Our Kids Today

When ESPN bestowed on Jenner the highest of all their awards, the message was clear: human autonomy and individualism stand above all other virtues in modern society.

At the risk of oversimplification, I think understanding the nature and danger of elevating human autonomy is a starting place for helping kids understand the modern worldview, which counters Christianity. Underneath the message of so many songs, the moral of so many movies, the principles of so many causes, and the promises of so many... Continue Reading

Orientation Identity and the Church

LG grew into LGBQT, and it was that T for transgender that marked another seismic shift in the culture.

Rather than simply being oriented toward the same sex, which at least had your orientation in part focused on yourself in relation to other people, in the transgender movement identity has taken another step inward. For now identity is focused more solely on yourself in relation to your self.   In this bravest and newest of... Continue Reading

When Humans Don’t Procreate

“Global population growth to virtually stop by 2100.”

The main philosophical reason is the rampant materialism and concomitant lack of spirituality in our age. Materialism breeds a preoccupation with self-satisfaction and self-indulgence. Individuals shun traditional adult joys and responsibilities like marriage and child-rearing for a self-indulgent lifestyle that exalts sexual pleasure above familial commitments. Such people have turned inward. They no longer think... Continue Reading

My Toronto March For Life Speech

“Sam, what would you say to a girl considering an abortion?”

Thirteen years ago, I didn’t know what to say to a girl with an unplanned pregnancy. I didn’t know how to effectively articulate that abortion hurts women and kills babies. However last year, at my internship at the Canadian Center For Bio-Ethical Reform, I learned how to talk to people effectively and compassionately about the... Continue Reading

Same-Sex Attraction: What the Fall of Harvard Can Teach Us

A change in mood, leads to a change in morals, which leads to a change in message.

A change in the mood of the American populace had to take place. So Marshal Kirk and Hunter Madison (pen name Erastes Pill) in 1987 wrote an essay “The Overhauling of Straight America”[4] They laid out the six steps to the “desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights. To desensitize the public... Continue Reading

Breakpoint: GLAAD Not Happy About Declining Acceptance of LGBT

How the Movement Overplayed Its Hand.

The political, legal, and cultural victories of the past decade have led many LGBT activists and allies to believe that the kind of complete “acceptance” GLAAD is after was not only inevitable but imminent. So much so, they became impatient not only with people who overtly disagreed with them, but even with those who were... Continue Reading
