No, Education Isn’t Neutral

Introduction For the past one hundred years, modern progressive education has been selling this line: education can be completely neutral. This means that a Christian, an atheist, a Muslim, and a Buddhist student can all come to the government school and get a “just the facts” education. The teacher will teach them that 2 2=4…

Only Wicked Civilizations Hate Children

It is common in western culture to degrade parenting. We degrade parenting because we hate children. We live in a time when people are having less children and are looking for every excuse to justify it. Nothing stands as a greater condemnation than the 60 million or so children who have been murdered through the…

Book Review in Three: Federal Husband

I recently heard of the term, "first generation Christian father" as a moniker for a God-fearing dad who just trying to figure things out. He has had no godly father to show him the ropes and often that father has shown him how to fall of the ship. I resonate deeply with this description. I…

Book Review in Three: Extreme Ownership

Some books you read for lesiure.  Some books you read for a kick in the pants.  Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin is the later kind of book.   At it’s core, the book drives home this powerful point:  Effective leaders take complete ownership of everything…

Fathers: Own the Education of your Children

This post is a continuation of my line of reasoning on Christian families leaving the government schools. To get up to speed, I recommend you first go back and read it here. Fathers, I specifically want to talk to you at this point. If we follow the logic up stream of God's command in Ephesian's…

Trigger Warning: Christians Parents, Leave the Public Schools Now

If you have made past the title of this post, thanks for staying. I realize that from the start I have offended many of you. If you have paused your outrage for a moment because you want to hear what seemingly crazy-brained arguments follow, I offer an even greater thanks for giving me a chance.…

Book Review in Three: The Oresteia

I have terrible eyesight. Around ninth grade, my teacher had noticed that I was struggling to see the board from the front row and recommended it was time to get an eye exam. Too my parents credit, I did my best to fake my way through the problem for several years because in the nineties…

Andy Stanley’s Irresistible: Epilogue Part II

In my last installment of my review of Stanley's book I'd like to focus on the word Irresistible in the title. Ever since I dove into this book, I've thought the title to be incredibly ironic. Stanley is deeply troubled that people are not experiencing authentic faith. He is deeply troubled that American Christians don't…

Andy Stanley’s Irresistible: Epilogue Part I

Having given my thoughts and refutations to Stanley's claims in my previous posts, I wanted to climb up to look at his book from 30,000 feet. Stanley's thesis is that the church in the west has an apologetics problem. I believe him on this point. Not too long after I finished Irresistible Ligonier Ministries released…
