Thinking Biblically About When to Baptize Children

Posted on December 12, 2018 in Theology by

In a country like the United States, where easy believe-ism has produced false converts and cultural Christianity that seems to identify more with the American flag and White House than with the Scriptures and church house, this view is understandable. It’s almost a necessary evil.

These Headlines Begin to Pull Back the Curtain on Our Confused Culture

Posted on July 11, 2018 in Public Policy, Sexuality, Uncategorized by

If a white person dresses as a white person because she finds that person beautiful, is that a problem? Is beauty no longer in the eyes of the beholder? Are white people no longer allowed to be proud? Does this apply to all whites (German, Irish, British, South African) or just American whites? It seems the people telling us not to be racist encourage a lot of racist habits.

Sunday: Is It The Lord’s Day or Just Another Day for Sports and Recreation?

Posted on May 22, 2018 in Family, Theology by

There’s no doubt we are all aware of how sports has become a god in our culture. Kids sports are no different. It has often been noted that parents will drive for miles, sit out in the cold or rain, and spend large sums of money for their kids to play a game. The dedication parents and kids have to sports is admirable. But, as it’s often been noted, the same dedication doesn’t exist for the church.

Toys R Us Partners with Organization That Killed Customers

Posted on April 11, 2018 in Money, Public Policy by

Toys R Us supported the Komen foundation. Komen actively partners with Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is actively killing the customer base of Toys R Us. Toys R Us says declining birth rates contributed to declining profits and, ultimately, to the end of their business.

The lesson here is simple, if kids are your customer base, don’t support – directly or indirectly – any organization that works to kill your customer base.

It’s Not Just Millennials that Need Personal Financial Education

Posted on January 23, 2018 in Money by

I don’t like talking about debt. But I spend a lot of time talking (and writing) about debt. Mainly because our nation is drowning in debt. From the recent college graduate with $80,000 in student loans, to the middle-aged working class adults that are still paying off student loans but have added a mortgage, car payments, credit car balances, and a home equity line; our nation has a serious debt crisis.

According to an article at Business Insider that published the results of a Trading Economics study, out of 30 countries, America ranks #10 for having the most debt. Americans have a collective $1.14 trillion in auto debt, $1.28 trillion in student loans, and $8.82 trillion in mortgage debt. The total household debt of Americans is up to $8.82 trillion (as of the third quarter of 2016).

These numbers give America a household-debt-to-GDP number of 78.8%; making us the country with the 10th highest debt.

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.

One Way to Eliminate Racism: Disciple Your Kids

Posted on August 31, 2017 in Family, Theology by

This father, which seemed sincere, and sincerely heartbroken over his sons attitude and actions wants to make is clear that their family does not believe the same way. To emphasize this point the father wrote that his son has been disowned, uninvited to any family gatherings until he changes his ways. And the father specifically wanted everyone to know:

“We do not know specifically where he learned these beliefs. He did not learn them at home.”

This begs the question: where did he learn these beliefs?

Planned Parenthood Has Some Advice for Your Pre-Schooler

Posted on August 16, 2017 in Life, Sexuality by

If you thought that Planned Parenthood couldn’t stoop any lower into the sewer of culture, you clearly don’t know this criminal organization. Planned Parenthood recently released new guidelines and talking points for talking with kids about sex and gender. In case you didn’t know, this is the last group of people you want involved in any discussion with your kids about sex and gender. If you’re not sure whether this is true or not, consider:

New Study Reveals Stark Difference Between Pro-Life and Pro-Abortion Families

Posted on July 18, 2017 in Life by

Though our plans and discussions may have been similar, the outcome has been very different for people. While many families adapt and re-discuss and re-plan. Others choose to abort their child and continue with their original plan. That difference has led to a “shocking” new study with a “shocking” conclusion: pro-life families have more children than pro-abortion families.

The study says that not only are pro-life families larger, they are producing a generation that is “markedly more pro-life”:

Do Kids Really go to Heaven When They Die?

Posted on June 20, 2017 in Family, Theology by

While we may have good intentions for our efforts to comfort grieving parents, Christians must make sure that their intentions, efforts, and words are based solely on Scripture. There is no real comfort in telling someone what cannot be supported by Scripture. So before we tell parents that their child is now in Heaven, we need to examine Scripture to determine whether that is true or not.

The traditional, somewhat historical position can be summed up in a statement by Sam Storms, writing at The Gospel Coalition, when he says:
