Donuts are Heretical!

Gabe’s Lost His Mind Given the strain of the pandemic and the fact that I have the same Myers-Brigg personality as the Joker and Captain Jack Sparrow its quite understandable that I would snap go to the dark side of the force. But I promise this isn’t what’s going on.…

A Critique of Standard Missions and Evangelism

Missions Observed  Mission is something I think about a lot. The first reason is that I’m a Missionary’s kid, and lived overseas for a short while. Another reason is that I’ve gone on a number of short term mission trips to countries like Ghana, Russia, and Thailand. I’ve also done…

What is Supreme about Sola Scriptura?

Sola Scriptura Misunderstood Sola Scriptura may be one of the most misunderstood doctrines among many Christains today in America. It’s typically taken to mean “Scripture Alone.” That is we don’t need, nor should we take Tradition, Experience or Reason into account when formulating doctrine and deciding how we should live…

Nicaea Is Enough: A Response

In 2017 a professor from the university I attended wrote a blog post titled “Is Nicaea Enough?” I’ve been thinking about that subject a lot recently. Nicaea is, in fact, enough. Here’s my take on it. But First I Want To Say… Too often “Christians’ ‘ view other “Christians’ ‘…

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…

An Orthodoxy of Love

Turns out Orthodoxy is actually Important For the past few years as my theology has changed, and grown a stronger conviction that orthodoxy (which, “has the double meaning of ‘right belief’ and ‘right worship’” Kallistos Ware) is essential to the Christian Faith.

Totally Depraved Bonobos?

Total Depravity Defined In my philosophy 101 class I took in undergrad I was exposed to the utter importance of defining one’s terms. It’s imperative to do so if we wish to be understood and actually not talk past one another. So what do I mean by Total Depravity? Do…

Good Episcopalians Should Judge

Recently my story group from my church met for our weekly meeting. And in case you’re wondering, Story groups are simply what we call our small groups. During the time of discussion the topic of judging came up. The group sentiment was a familiar one here in our western context,…
