Coronavirus: Did God Cause or Allow the Pandemic?

Until now I have held back from writing about the coronavirus. Partially for my own sanity, that is trying to go on with some semblance of normativity so that I don’t have a mental breakdown. But also because everyone is talking and writing about it. Every time I turn on…

We Don’t Have To Have It All Figured Out

What a Know It All! Despite the fact that many think I’m a know it all, I promise there is a lot that I don’t know. I know nothing about Zoology, Psychology, Cardiology, Physics, Videography, Graphic Design, Biology, Mathematics ( literally cannot do fractions) I mean the list could literally…

Church-Splitting is Heretical

Kicking It With Heresy Recently for some reason I’ve been on a heresy kick. Many of my recent articles I’ve written have been about heresy in some shape or form. This certainly was not something I planned to do, and it’s only really now as I’m writing this that I’ve…

I Smell Universalism Universalism has been in the airs these days. No doubt the raised awareness is due in part to the fact David Bently Hart recently published a book on the topic. Adam, my friend and co-blogger recently read Hart’s book, and that has provoked conversations between us. My…

John Calvin: And The False Dichotomy​ of Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy

Ramblings of a Madman (Excerpt from my book)
