The Marriage of Rightwing Politics and Social Darwinism

Preface: several years ago I used to be super rightwing. However, as I’ve grown in Christ and studied more, I’ve realized that rightwing political positions don’t always align with Scripture. I’ve realized that I have the choice to follow Scripture completely or follow rightwing politics completely—but I can’t do both. So, I’ve chosen to alignContinue reading “The Marriage of Rightwing Politics and Social Darwinism”

Christians and the Undoing of America

America totters on the edge of collapse. Or so it seems, anyway. The nation which was self proclaimed a “light on a hill” now seems to give no more light than a glow-in-the-dark sticker. The manifest destiny which once was defined by greatness, now leans toward destruction. In this dark hour in American history, ChristiansContinue reading “Christians and the Undoing of America”

Rethinking My Christianity: More than just Politics

By Nate Labadorf I suppose this post starts with a simple admission: I didn’t intend my original post and my follow up post to cause the stir it did. The original intention of the post was to explain to my average of 20 readers why I have changed political/theological views over the past year. IContinue reading “Rethinking My Christianity: More than just Politics”

Rethinking My Christianity: Why I’ve Changed in the Last Year

Some people are probably wondering what happened to me. I used to be a super rightwing guy with a fundamentalist view of Scripture and life. Now, I lean center in my politics and only agree with fundamentalism in that there are narrow doctrinal positions that define Christianity. Why this change? This process has been goingContinue reading “Rethinking My Christianity: Why I’ve Changed in the Last Year”

Awakened Church: Race Relations in the Pentateuch and Hermeneutical Interaction with Woke Church

I finally edited my paper on racial relations. And I’ve posted it on my Academia Site. Here is my introduction: When it comes to discussions on race relations, sides are quickly chosen, and the battle lines are drawn. Each side is ready to do whatever it takes to destroy the other. While this reaction isContinue reading “Awakened Church: Race Relations in the Pentateuch and Hermeneutical Interaction with Woke Church”

A Parable on Racial Relations

A certain man went down from Morocco to South Africa and fell among slave-traders, which stripped him of his raiment, and brought him to America. They beat him and left him half dead in the ghetto. His brother saw him in the way, but he had no resources to help. He begged for help fromContinue reading “A Parable on Racial Relations”

Symposium Interview with Jonathon Davis about Bonhoeffer

In this podcast, I interview Jonathon Davis about his paper concerning the theology of Bonhoeffer. I really enjoyed this interview. Jonathon really knew his stuff and was able to take a lot of the confusing parts about Bonhoeffer and distill it for me to understand. I hope you enjoy!

Racism and Fundamentalism: Why We Need to Pursue Accurate Exegesis

Here more of my thoughts on fundamentalism. I was scrolling through Twitter last Saturday (yes, I have a twitter account @NateLabadorf) and noticed something that really disappointed me. I did a search for my alma mater Bob Jones University to find out what people were saying about it. To my disappointment, the most repeated topicContinue reading “Racism and Fundamentalism: Why We Need to Pursue Accurate Exegesis”

Sermon: Joash, The Hypocrite King

Given Josh Harris’s announcement, I find this interesting that I preach this sermon on July 14th, 2019. I wrote this sermon in the fall of 2018 and intended to preach it that winter. But because that Sunday accidentally was double booked at the church, my message was postponed. I planed to preach it in March,Continue reading “Sermon: Joash, The Hypocrite King”
