Update: Blog and Podcast

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”

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.

First, as Christians weContinue reading “The OT and Me: What is Our Relationship with It?”

Christ as King: The Royal Supremacy of Christ

Hey y’all, I just finished a paper for Christology on the topic of Christ as King. It’s not super technical, so you’ll find it a more or less easy read. https://www.academia.edu/41312010/Christ_As_King_The_Royal_Supremacy_of_Christ Here is a summery of it: Christians often treat Jesus as a friend and a brother, as well they should. He is both theContinue reading “Christ as King: The Royal Supremacy of Christ”

Two Nations Under God: The Mosaic and New Covenants

We all struggle with interpreting the Mosaic Covenant as Christians. Well, we know what the Law says, it is clear enough. But what does it mean to us. Here is my answer.
