We live in a time of great apostasy, which means that there are a great many undiscerning pastors who will abuse their positions for nefarious ends––all while thinking they are doing the Lord’s work. …


What is it that makes a coffee table and a kitchen table both tables? What is it that makes a Golden Retriever and a German Shepherd both dogs? What is it that makes you and I both human? Table, dog, human: these are all concepts used to unite many particular…


Tom Ascol has once again helped ministry leaders who push ideas inspired by Critical Race Theory to save face through a proclamation about a private phone call.

Before, it was Matt Hall (Provost of Southern Seminary). Now, it is Paul Chitwood (President of the Internation Mission Board).

In a recent Twitter exchange, the prominent Objectivist author, Don Watkins, invited Cody Libolt and me to submit a succinct argument for the existence of God for him to consider. Our discussion on Twitter centered primarily on the topic of whether or not theistic arguments are inherently arbitrary, or inherently…

  • The First Warning from the elders, which was also a response to my email.
  • My response, seeking clarification.
  • The Second Warning from the elders, less than 24 hours after the first warning.

It has been alleged that the growing number of us who sharply oppose presuppositionalism in the Church do so from a position which is novel, naive, ignorant, dishonest, or even disrespectful.

As I’ve interacted with various people about the contemporary Social Justice controversy in the Church––from friends, to pastors, to “big-wigs,” to seminary students––I’ve realized that too many seem to have forgotten why Christian stalwarts, like Al Mohler, have the prestigious legacies they have now.

Ekimini Uwan (aka @sista_theology) recently spoke at the Sparrow conference on Whiteness as wickedness. As might reasonably be expected, some white people were offended.
