Just to let you know, I am still working on my next podcast. My main job, that of a commercial electrician, has really picked up recently. We’re working some serious overtime and so I’m not able to get to my office as much as I’d like. I’ve got about half the podcast scripted and someContinue reading “Podcast Update”

My last post stirred some pushback from many people across a wide variety of camps. The main reason is that I simplified too much of the fundamentalist and Calvinistic camps without sufficient nuance or disclaimers. I made strawmen caricatures with which everyone disagrees. I apologize for overgeneralizations. I was attempting to write my thoughts on the matter and the conclusions to which I’ve come. But in doing so, I’m afraid I did not do justice to my theological sparring partners.
As I’m sure you picked up on, I’m not a fan of either Calvinism or Fundamentalism.

This was the time when New England rejected the Christian Faith. The book observed how New England was founded by the Puritans who espoused Calvinism. From thereContinue reading “Calvinism and Liberalism”
By Nate Labadorf I’ve thought a fair bit about presuppositional apologetics this last year and have come to some mixed conclusions.

On the plus side, it doesContinue reading “My Thoughts on Presuppositional Apologetics”

At Lexington and Concord, the American militia fought of the well-trained British Army. The British made a number of tactical errors which forced them to retreat. And so startedContinue reading “Jesus, Moses, the Law, and Nationality”
So the question is where have I been? I’m not really sure, I think. At the beginning of June I contracted COVID19 and underwent its symptoms. I nailed ever symptom on the list but thankfully I stayed out of the hospital. It pretty much crushed my creativity though, so I wasn’t able to write much.Continue reading “Update: Blog and Podcast”
