DIED in 2017: Two Notable Deaths You Probably Didn’t Hear About

Posted on January 18, 2018 in Life, Theology by

Much more could be said about these two faith driven people. To say our world is worse for losing them would be an understatement. But what occurred to me was the relative media silence at their passing. Why were they not heralded on lists of notable people we’ve lost in 2017? Perhaps it was because the mission of their lives stands in direct opposition to everything the media and this world holds dear. It makes me wonder how many other “notable voices” have gone silent, unnoticed.

The #1 Way to Take Advantage of the New Tax Bill

Posted on January 16, 2018 in Money by

As a financial professional I work with people newly retired, nearing retirement, or hoping to one day retire accumulate assets, preserve assets, and protect assets. It’s a job involving comprehensive financial planning, asset management, and budgeting. All of the parts have to work together to make sure someone doesn’t outlive their money, among other things. But all this planning can be brought to a screeching halt for one reason:

Next Up: Trans-Racial People

Posted on January 11, 2018 in Public Policy by

Is this really a problem? Is there something wrong with being one thing while claiming to be another? Should we be concerned with someone that lives as another ethnicity instead of their own?

SHOCK: Company Sells Baby Heads to Undercover Reporters

Posted on January 9, 2018 in Life by

A biotech firm called Restore Life USA has been discovered selling aborted baby body parts. In this grisly version of this practice that was first made known to the American public when Planned Parenthood revealed that they sold aborted baby body parts, Restore Life USA was caught selling severed baby heads.

The Feminist Worldview is Incompatible with Love Because It Is Selfish

Posted on January 4, 2018 in Marriage by

Welcome to modern feminism. In our feminist culture where men are evil and must be defeated, women are never to do anything that could be considered demeaning. Such things include: cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, any kind of housework, decorating (for holidays or otherwise), and a whole host of other terrible, awful jobs. Any of these things are “below women” and only serve to set women back decades.

Economics 101: Discrimination is Fundamental to a Free Market Economy

Posted on January 3, 2018 in Money, Public Policy, Religious Freedom by

There it is again: it’s not about the person, it’s about the message. Once again, this might sound like a free speech case (and there’s an element of that here) but this is about private property rights. So far Jack has proven over many years that he is willing to serve any person. However, he is not willing to promote every message. That is a value every free person holds dear. The Jewish person does not want to be forced to promote Naziism. The African-American does not want to be forced to promote white supremacy. Are you seeing the point? Every person has the right to discriminate based on his or her sincerely held convictions. Yep, you read that right, we all have the right to discriminate.

Our Sexual Harassment Conversation Needs to Include Men and Women

Mayim Bialik has been in the spotlight since she was very young. Being in Hollywood as a child can be dangerous. But Bialik, now 41 years old, says she has made it her practice to make decisions she considers “self-protecting and wise.” Bialik shared her thoughts in an op-ed for the New York Times in which Bialik discusses what it’s like to be a feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s world, she shared the following bit of wisdom:

Why Letting Your Kids “Figure It Out” is a Bad Idea

Posted on December 20, 2017 in Family, Theology by

I confess that I don’t understand the impulse to “let kids figure it out” for themselves. Not only does this go against the biblical imperative to teach and train our kids, it goes against our instinct as parents.

How God’s Sovereignty Helps Explain the Events of This Life

Posted on December 19, 2017 in Theology by

As humans we have a hunger to know the facts, to know everything there is to know about a situation. It’s what drives our 24 hour a day news cycle. It’s what propels us to know the motives behind a mass shooting in Las Vegas. We want to know why things happen because, we reason, if we know the motive we can process the situation and make peace with it. So we are naturally propelled to know the “why” of every situation.

This makes reconciling God’s revealed will and His decreed will difficult. But we have to properly understand how these two wills work together in harmony or we will be tempted to think there is division in God.

Have You Added “Giving” to Your Financial Plan to Show Thanks?

Posted on December 14, 2017 in Money by

If we understand our money and possessions as being a trust, something given to us for the purpose of helping and serving others, it will change how we view wealth. We will carefully add giving to our financial plan and seek to better the circumstances of those around us. Not for fame or recognition, but to say “thank you” for the blessings we have received in our life.
