The Fate of Empires tells us the Fate of the USA

I have another Youtube episode of “The Way I See It” out. In this episode I summarize the essay “The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival” by Sir John Glubb, which I recently read and was struck by. Here is a summary of that essay which I discuss in the video. As I read… Continue reading The Fate of Empires tells us the Fate of the USA

Racism in Little Town!

In this episode I read from a portion of book 7 in the Laura Ingalls Wilder “Little House” series, Little Town on the Prairie. In the chapter, Madcap Days, there is an example of overt racism that I thought was interesting and shocking. I discuss how to address it with our children.

The Anti-CRT Action Plan

Parents around the country are “outraged” over Critical theory precepts being taught to our kids in public education. They go to board meetings and rail against it, but what is the next step? In this YouTube episode, I discuss what I believe are some action steps to be taken to stop and reverse CRT over… Continue reading The Anti-CRT Action Plan

Trying a workaround

So I’m sharing a link to an article in this blog post because otherwise f**eb**k won’t let me share it directly. I guess this whole WEBSITE goes against their “community standards”. 😱 A good read. “Without a positive defense of existing identities, traditions, and hierarchies, the only thing on your side is inertia.” As you… Continue reading Trying a workaround

The Growing Spread in Education Levels Across the Country

This past year brought changes that will result in an even wider gap in education across our nation, which will be interesting (or saddening) to watch manifest over the next 10-20 years. I suppose there was already quite a spread: homeschool kids, private school kids, charter school kids, religious school kids, public school kids. Even… Continue reading The Growing Spread in Education Levels Across the Country

Why Don’t Denominational Churches Promote Their Colleges More?

From the top, I don’t know. I read this interesting tweet by Dr Bradley this morning: So maybe in the survey they address or will find the answer. I also will read the article he attached in the tweet. I grew up Southern Baptist. I went to a nearby southern Baptist college, Shorter College (now… Continue reading Why Don’t Denominational Churches Promote Their Colleges More?

CRT Cannot Be an Analytical Tool for the Bible. Here’s Why…

CRT is described as an “analytical tool” and under such an innocent sounding guise, even the SBC (Southern Baptist Convention) adopted it two years ago as a valuable method for interpreting scripture. Now they regret that as it has not led to unity, but to more division. One could say, “Well that’s just because white… Continue reading CRT Cannot Be an Analytical Tool for the Bible. Here’s Why…

Thorns and sin and lambs and rams

So in the 22nd chapter of Genesis we read the account of Abraham being called by God to take his son, whom he loves, on a three day journey. The purpose according to God is to sacrifice him on a mountain. He doesn’t know which mountain at the beginning, just as he didn’t know which… Continue reading Thorns and sin and lambs and rams

On the Sufficiency of Scripture

Below is an excerpt which I really enjoyed reading (made me giggle a couple of times) and found impactful in my understanding of the importance of Scripture, especially as what the New Testament writers call Scripture is the Old Testament. From Institutes of the Christian Religion by John CalvinBook 1, Chapter 9 – “All the… Continue reading On the Sufficiency of Scripture
