The Case for Christ is Not Cheesy

Good News, Christians. It’s not Cheesy. Let angels dance. Let the people rejoice. A Christian film company made a Christian movie and a miracle happened. We don’t have to lower our expectations. The Case for Christ is a film you can go see without preparing your rationalizations before hand. “Well you know, they don’t have the budget that those big name Hollywood movies do.”  “Well it has a good message at least.” All the while … Continue reading

The Sacrifice

When we think in terms of the sacrifice made for us nearly 2,000 years ago, we naturally think in terms of the sacrifice made by the Son. Braveheart. He gave His life for you and me, and the enormity of that fact should never be obscured by the passage of time or by our familiarity with the event.

George is a Catholic Conservative who argued against same sex marriage and for Hobby Lobby’s right … Continue reading

They are either seeking to transform North America into the next caliphate, or they’re not. They either want to impose on us a culture that seemingly hasn’t progressed much beyond a medieval mindset, or they don’t. Seemingly endless arguments abound on the Internet over whether it’s possible to practice … Continue reading

Invested

I have been reading Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure by Tim Harford. One of our supporters, who had been personally involved with several authoritarian groups, sent the book to me. She had been intrigued by Tim Harford’s idea of being blinded by the will. The blinding of a person’s will happens when he or she has fully invested themselves into something which turns out to be a terrible mistake. Not willing to accept … Continue reading
