Recently, Apple, Google, and Amazon, or Big Tech as they are called, systematically removed accessibility to the conservative social media alternative Parler.

The Heart of a Reluctant Renegade

After my virtual meltdown on social media in the last few months, I found myself reflecting on whom I’ve become and why I’ve reacted the ways that I have. (See the end of this article for my series of posts). Why did I react the way I did? Could I not have done better? Now,Continue reading “The Heart of a Reluctant Renegade”

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”

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”

Between Can and Should: Church Singing and COVID19

Dr. Ian Malcolm: “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” These words, first uttered as entertainment, contain a surprising amount of wisdom. We need to take time to think through the ethical implications before we act. Should We Sing? Governments are loosening restrictionsContinue reading “Between Can and Should: Church Singing and COVID19”
