The Destructive Power of Narrative: An Example from American History

Do you really know American history? What impressions come to mind when you think about the Puritan colonists who settled in New England? How would you describe them? As a child, my thoughts about the New England colonists were shaped almost exclusively by the Thanksgiving holiday. I knew they traveled

Our Strange New World of Foolishness

In a famous quote, G.K. Chesterton defined foolishness: “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing, they believe in anything.” That is, “anything” as in “any thing, without discrimination.” The ability to discriminate is an acquired skill. An infant cannot distinguish himself from his mother. By age

Why Have Evangelicals Supported Donald Trump?

Donald Trump favored by Evangelicals Like so many in this US election cycle, I assumed that if a moral, principled constitutionalist were to run for president, evangelical Christians would flock to him or her.

What’s the Real Agenda of Trans Activists?

The current trans rights discussion is not about bathrooms; it’s about the destruction of the family and the overthrow of the transcendent moral order that has supported it. It dawned on me recently that President Obama’s legacy will not be in maintaining America’s security and well-being. Rather, he will be remembered for determining who

Is Harmony a Christian Invention?

If you enjoy harmony in music, you should probably thank the people who brought us the Bible. That’s one way to restate the message of a recent blog post by our friend, Christian Overman. Westerners take melody and harmony for granted. But “Western” music did not spring from a vacuum.

We muddle and even dismiss our humanity when we reject God. The truth of God’s existence has been revealed with such clarity that people who refuse to acknowledge God must suppress the truth. They must repeatedly and actively submerge the reality that continues to confront them, like a child pushing the jack

Moral Creator, Moral Creation: Why Atheists Deny God

Answer: God’s invisible, moral character is revealed in His creation. Question: How can the invisible be visible? That’s where we ended last Thursday’s post.
