Biblical perspectives and considerations regarding the major issues of the world around us.

Pete Buttigieg Quarrel with God

Quarrelling with the Creator

This is an issue of sight into what is right and what is wrong. Recognizing deception and properly responding to deception is essential for faith-based people in this generation. When we hear a speech such as that presented by Mr. Buttigieg this week we need to recognize what it really is and also what the truth is.

Who Is In Charge?

We live in a time when we can no longer believe what we see, hear, or know to be factual. What was once right is now wrong. What was once wrong is now right. There is no clear definition of truth. The loss of truth and absolute standards of right and wrong is resulting is catastrophic cultural conditions.

Everyone Did What Was Right In Their Own Eyes

In this blog post, I want to take a deeper look at this idea of “everyone doing what is right in their own eyes” to examine how this piece of scripture explains many of our current troubling issues and also how they can be resolved.

Ep. 194 – Lovers of Self – Show Notes

In 2 Timothy 3:2 there is a warning of terrible times in the future when (among other things) people will be lovers of themselves. This podcast episode looks at this reality of our current day and age. At no point in the history of the world can an entire generation even come close to competing with our own for the unfortunate title of being a people totally in love with themselves.

Guarding Your Heart in the Culture War

As believers we have a responsibility to pursue truth – not politics. Unfortunately, we have been taught to neutralize that responsibility by equating different political issues, parties and candidates with the truth. (We say and honestly believe on a personal level that we don’t do this, but most of us do.) There are consequences to this compromise. It is all too easy for us to observe such consequences upon society at large but we should also be aware and vigilant regarding those consequences upon our own individual souls. This post consists of some personal considerations and standards in the aftermath of the latest battle of America’s culture war.
