Psychopathy and the Origins of Totalitarianism
Pseudo-realities are constructed by linguistically capable manipulators who wish to control other people.
The way resistance—just plain resistance—works is by restoring to the normal person the epistemic and moral authority necessary to resist the ideologue’s illegitimate demands to participate in a pseudo-real fraud. That is, it restores confidence in normality to the normal. No one feels ashamed of resisting a con, whatever form it takes, and this is... Continue Reading
How To Be A Racist
Racist policies against black Americans are just ghosts summoned by antiracists to scare black people and to shame white people into submission.
Racist policies have become so nonexistent in America today, antiracists like Ibram X. Kendi are forced to present disparities as the most damning evidence of discrimination today. But that isn’t damning evidence against racism, it’s damning evidence against antiracism. The abolitionists and civil rights leaders didn’t need calculators to present evidence of racial discrimination. ... Continue Reading
Discernment in 2021: We Have Work to Do
More than ever, we need to recover the heart, skills, and habits of discernment.
There’s a temptation to think that as Christians (especially evangelical and conservative ones) we have to fix the cultural mess we’re in. “Our civilization is crumbling! … America as we know it is ending! … Our Christian heritage is being trampled to death!” All that may be true, but it doesn’t follow that we must be the...

2 New Mexico Megachurches Fined Over Packed Christmas Eve Services
Two megachurches in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are facing stiff fines and community backlash after health officials alleged the houses of worship violated the Governor’s executive orders.
“We have taken the pandemic seriously from the start and have prudent measures in place. But when governments exceed their constitutional authority and contradict what we are called on by God to do, we answer first to His authority,” Legacy Church officials said in a statement. Two megachurches in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are facing... Continue Reading
10 Reasons Why Singing is Essential to Worship
Heaven will not be filled with people in seats listening to an angelic choir. It will be filled with God’s people corporately giving God praise.
Jesus does not redeem us for our ability to lead a tune. But he does redeem us for the purpose of our glorifying him through song, and demonstrating our unity in Christ by singing the same song. Thus, every Christian should be a singing Christian, and every voice in the congregation matters. You could even say... Continue Reading
The Danger of Universal Basic Income
Universal Basic Income (UBI) enslaves workers to the supremacy of the State by decoupling income from work.
The “Protestant Work Ethic” is what made America a free society by empowering the individual and making “work” a holy effort, as the Apostle Paul wrote to the Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” But more importantly, work itself was ordained...

You WILL Be Silenced!
The militants seeking to destroy Lyle Shelton are coming after all of us.
Of course everything that I have warned about has been happening – and then some. I have documented countless cases of those who refused to bow the knee at the altar of the sexual militants paying a heavy price, with legal actions of all sorts taking place. How many people have now lost their jobs,... Continue Reading
John B. Calhoun’s Mouse Utopia Experiment and Reflections on the Welfare State
When all sense of necessity is stripped from the life of an individual, life ceases to have purpose.
My instincts tell me that Kubań is correct in suggesting that a more likely culprit than overpopulation in the mice demise in their utopia was this: the lack of a healthy challenge. Take away the motivation to overcome obstacles—notably, the challenge of providing for oneself and family—and you deprive individuals of an important stimulus that would... Continue Reading
Christian Nationalism vs. Christian Patriotism
We may have confused nationalism with biblical Christianity.
Obviously, traditional Christians ought to limit that kind of nationalistic fervor. As “strangers and exiles on the earth,” our ultimate allegiance is to Christ’s kingdom. Our love for a non-American brother or sister in Christ should exceed our comradeship with unbelieving American patriots, whose numbers are legion. But measured patriotism still seems appropriate, and somewhat unavoidable... Continue Reading
New ’Woke’ Denomination is a Warning Sign to Christians
"We seek correct actions, correct praxis, where God sustains us during the unanswerable questions,"
“The timeline of the Holy Spirit is driving our decision to launch the LMX at this moment, and we are following her call,” explained Spencer-Mill, while using female pronouns to refer to God. A cursory overview of the LMX website reveals that the denomination will resemble nothing like the movement started by John and Charles... Continue Reading
