A Fundamentally Transformed America

In the previous post, The Meaning of America, I attempted to distill a list of the core ideas and values that gave rise to our distinctly American culture—that uniquely American way of doing things that was eloquently described by de Tocqueville in the 1830s and is still recognizable today. I called this “the

The Meaning of America

What does it mean to be an American? I’ve been giving a lot of thought to this recently.  Unlike most nations, America* is not defined by a shared ethnicity. We come from all over the world. Some are recent arrivals, others have lived here for hundreds of years, and some

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.

To Reject God is to Dismiss Your Humanity

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.

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. Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities … have been clearly seen, Romans 1:19–20. The creation makes visible the invisible. This seems like a conundrum.

One Life, Two Choices

Life is filled with choices. Should I study or go play? Should I stay in school or drop out? Should I take this job or wait for a better one? Should I move or stay where I am? Should I seek marriage or remain single? Some choices are trivial. Some

God Put the Invisible in Plain Sight

God made invisible things visible through His creation. In a previous post we saw how human beings suppress the truth. We do not want to recognize an external, objective truth. In our rebellion we desire to be the final arbiter of truth. To be that final authority, to determine what it true

It Would Have Been Enough

Recently I heard a homily on the Jewish concept Dayeinu, “It would have been enough.” It touched me deeply and propelled me to do some additional study on the subject. Dayeinu is a song used by the Jews as they celebrate Passover. It is a song of memory and gratefulness. It

Humans Reject the Truth

“What is truth?” The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, Romans 1:18 With this overarching statement, Paul opens his short course on worldview (Romans 1:18 -32). God’s wrath stands against the rebellion and
