Some Thought on the Enneagram Problem

The enneagram is finding its way into evangelical churches and organizations almost unabated. Some are writing about the matter. Don Veinot, Macia Montenegro, Doug Groothuis, and others have written and spoken extensively on the origin and character of the enneagram....


New Book Announcement

Coming in Spring 2018 is my first publication, tentatively entitled "The Myth of Scientific Certainty, an Apologetic Regarding Scientific Structures." It is an exploration into the structure of scientific theories, the structure and arguments of various scientists,...

Book Review

Book Review: Fault Lines by Voddie Baucham

To say that there is division in the church on the question of critical race theory (aka CRT) is to understate in a way that only the British might appreciate. The division is deep. The division is serious. And the division shows few signs of abatement. What is at...

Book Review: Live Not by Lies

I’m going to attempt to cover the intent of this work fairly though I will employ some of my own terminology and phrasing. It should be consistent with Mr. Dreher’s intent. His previous popular work, The Benedict Option, bothered me. It bothered me because I saw it as...

Christianity & Society

A Replacement Theory Mess

The question of “white replacement theory” is gaining some steam. First, let me say that the position held by the supremacists and separatists is an ugly position and is contrary to the teachings of Christ. It has no place in church life. The Christian has no business...

Three Books

I wanted to call this piece “Three Books on Racism” but it really isn’t. The books are about Marxism and social manipulation. Then again, calling it “Three Books on Marxism” would scare a lot of people away. And to some it would be misleading as the topic of...


Two Kingdoms vs the RFRA

Mea culpa.  I took the bait. I reacted rashly.  You can see it in my tweets.  It's not that I was "wrong" so much as misdirected.  That's what seems to be at issue. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, RFRA, is a good thing in my opinion.  It gives local legs to its...

The Question of Morality Without God

This inquiry begins with a question: Does natural law bear moral authority? Is it possible to find in the nature of things created any sort of moral imperative that would bring about human flourishing? The answer seems both simple and complicated. This post is will...


Making Utility Look Good

This week's woodworking project: Canning shelves. 2x4 (inexpensive white lumber) posts were first cut square. Then the width was face-jointed, followed by adding a shaped corner with the router. The dados allowed a shelf to be held up without the need for extra...


Can Bad Theology be a False Flag?

First, what is a "false flag?" Wikipedia (twiw) says The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by individual entities, groups, or nations other...

The Systematic, Evangelical Mind

This is standard for all orthodoxies. No naturalismist constructs an apologetic for YEC, OEC, or TE. They just don’t. These are called “belief systems.” It seems silly to have to say that, but it seems Mr. Enns missed something really basic.


On Frameworks of Scientific Inquiry

Philosophy of science, like any other area, struggles with both method and framework. The methods side of the equation is most familiar to us. These are the questions of how theories are best constructed. That is where I have spent most of my time. The challenges are...


An Introduction

This effort is about apologetics that makes a difference in daily living. The emphasis is on science and ethics and the venue for teaching these is the local church. The science discussion is geared toward students (secondary & later), teachers, and scientists. The ethics discussion is for everyone. Read also for my doctrinal statement and other matters of importance.


How a “Fake News” Item Fits a Narrative-Driven Scenario

What if the narrative of the echo chamber is wrong? What if there is another narrative which explains the facts better? Education is the challenge of conservative media. The apocalyptic message of some will distract us from the goal of preparing the people. Conservatism is best when it takes the offensive. A defensive posture will always lose.
