Is “Sports Equity” the New Social Justice Movement?

Is “Sports Equity” the New Social Justice Movement?

It’s time that we read J.P. Hartley’s 1960 novel Facial Justice that “depicts a post-apocalyptic society that has sought to banish privilege and envy, to the extent that people will even have their faces surgically altered in order to appear neither too beautiful nor too ugly.” It was a crazy notion in 1960, but we may be headed this way in sports because of supposed gross inequities that should b [...]

Arguing from the Impossibility of the Contrary

Arguing from the Impossibility of the Contrary

During a “Gay Rights”/Juneteenth Parade in Fort Lauderdale, a man drove his pickup truck into a crowd killing one and injuring another. It was immediately denounced as a “terrorist attack” against the LGBTQ+ community. Here are some of the comments: • 2 hit by truck that was aiming for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s car, a person is dead. “This is a terrorist attack against the LGBT community…de [...]

Evolution as the Monkey's Paw

Evolution as the Monkey's Paw

Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection, first published in 1859, was the key that secularists wished for to advance a rival comprehensive worldview based on non-Christian presuppositions. Darwinian evolution, considered the epitome of science, was seen as a way out of a world governed by a Creator who demanded ethical absolutes. But it’s become a Monkey’s Paw. Be careful what [...]

What’s Lacking in Evolutionary Theory

What’s Lacking in Evolutionary Theory

The following is a list of what’s lacking in the evolutionary theory that we have been told is the basis of all science: Evolutionists claim that everything we see (or ever will see) and feel arose from lesser-complex organisms. Single organisms arose spontaneously from a primordial soup of chemicals that randomly came together at the beginning of what we now define as “life.” These basic life fo [...]

The Great Reset Has You in Its Sights

The Great Reset Has You in Its Sights

There are at least two types of “equality.” The first refers to equality before the law. The other is to use the law to force economic and social equality. This type of equality attempts to level society to force equal outcomes for everyone’s good. Orwell’s Animal Farm explains it best as there are always those at the top who define equality who become more equal than others. In the en [...]

The Rise of Economic Tyranny

The Rise of Economic Tyranny

Failure to follow God’s economic laws results in disaster for individuals, families, corporations, and nations. Those who make daily economic decisions in running a business and keeping track of household expenses understand this. If a family fails to pay its bills or writes bad checks to postpone bill collection, it suffers the consequences of having creditors call demanding payment. What is true [...]

“We Are Primates... We Are Animals”

“We Are Primates... We Are Animals”

I saw the following on a Facebook post: A chimpanzee’s finger and a human finger. Identical in practically every aspect. We don’t come from primates, we are primates. We are not a race, we are a species. We are animals. We are mammals. We are a product of nature. We belong to it and we are a part of it. — David Attenborough According to Attenborough, we are animals almost identical to chimpanzee [...]

Marxism in the Military

Marxism in the Military

Can anybody name a square inch spot on the planet anywhere where Marxism has brought anything good? Anywhere? Certainly not in • China, • Russia, • Cambodia, • Vietnam, • Cuba, • Venezuela. And now, Marxism is allegedly making inroads into the U.S. military at present? So says a whistleblower, who just got fired from the military. Critical Race Theory, which is now being taught in many schools and [...]

Prophecy Speculation for the Umpteenth Time

Prophecy Speculation for the Umpteenth Time

If someone burps in the Middle East, the end-time speculators come out of the woodwork and claim that this time it’s the end. People said the end was near more than 100 years ago when Europe went to war, and 51 years ago when Hal Lindsey wrote The Late Great Planet Earth, and 20 years ago when the Sabbath Millennium was said to start. The rapture and the antichrist have once again taken center sta [...]

If You Don't Start Here, You'll Never Get Anywhere

If You Don't Start Here, You'll Never Get Anywhere

The Christian begins with the presupposition that God created the cosmos and man as a special creation different in kind from both inanimate and other animate creations. We are so special that the Bible tells us that we are created in the “image of God” (Gen. 1:27). One of these image attributes is the existence of the mind and the ability to think rationally (Col. 3:10) and to act morally (Eph. [...]

Early Darwinists Knew its Moral Shortcomings

Early Darwinists Knew its Moral Shortcomings

Jeffrey O’Connell and Michael Ruse of Florida State University have written Social Darwinism published by Cambridge University Press in 2021. The book is described as follows: It begins by discussing the meaning of the term [Social Darwinism], moving then to its origins, paying particular attention to whether it is Charles Darwin or Herbert Spencer who is the true father of the idea. It gives an [...]

Constant Racist Teachings (CRT) in the Classroom

Constant Racist Teachings (CRT) in the Classroom

Critical race theory is the new Common Core. “Critical race theory is a practice. It’s an approach to grappling with a history of White supremacy that rejects the belief that what’s in the past is in the past, and that the laws and systems that grow from that past are detached from it,” said Kimberlé Crenshaw, a founding critical race theorist and a law professor who teaches at UCLA and Columbia U [...]

Science Cannot Teach Ethics

Science Cannot Teach Ethics

Belief in evolution is not a harmless enterprise. There are specific ethical implications that follow believing and applying the major tenets of the evolutionary religion even though prominent evolutionists go out of their way to deny it. The late Stephen Jay Gould, who served as professor of geology at Harvard and New York University, stated that “no factual discovery of science (statements about [...]

It's Darwin's Turn to Get Canceled

It's Darwin's Turn to Get Canceled

When and where will “cancel culture” stop? Wokeness is never satisfied. It’s never enough. Here’s a surprising late entry to the cancel culture sweepstakes. Charles Darwin is under attack. That’s right. St. Charles Darwin is about to get canceled if the folks at Sheffield University get their way. British naturalist Charles Darwin has become the latest historical scientist to run afoul of the “de [...]

Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist

Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist

If there are riots now in America, what will it be like 20 years from now if the New York Times gets its way? The New York Times sponsored the 1619 Project, which postulates that America’s real beginnings as a nation are when the first African slaves were brought to Jamestown in 1619. Many historians note that this is a distortion of our nation’s roots. Worse, it makes young people turn against th [...]

"Problem Profiteers" Have a Long and Sordid History

"Problem Profiteers" Have a Long and Sordid History

The racial divide in the United States is wider than it has ever been. The vast majority of Americans are not racists. They sympathize with Black Americans who have been treated unjustly. The history of Black suppression is real. It’s been a slow road to make right past injustices. Unfortunately, the Black Lives Matter movement has hijacked much of the goodwill that has been growing in the past fe [...]

Science Fiction Films as Hope and Warning

Science Fiction Films as Hope and Warning

Science Fiction has been defined as “Any story that argues the case for a changed world that has not yet come into being….”[1] A “changed world” means a temporary suspension of belief in what we know to be true to allow for the possibility of extraordinary occurrences that cannot happen in terms of our present operating worldview. Good science fiction blurs the distinction between the world [...]

The Inadequacy of Norman Geisler's Moral Law Theory

The Inadequacy of Norman Geisler's Moral Law Theory

It must not be forgotten that under the Puritans in Massachusetts there was no religious freedom. They persecuted those who did not believe their way. Many of those calling for a return to “Christian America” have forgotten what this so-called “Christian” state was like. Ironically, some of them are Baptists, who have forgotten that Roger Williams—a Baptist preacher and signer of the Declaration o [...]

Are General Revelation and Natural Law Substitutes for Biblical Law?

Are General Revelation and Natural Law Substitutes for Biblical Law?

Criticisms of theonomy are in vogue once again. I see this as a good turn of events. It shows an interest in social ethics and attempts to offer a viable methodology. I’ve noticed, however, that the criticisms of theonomy are not new. They’ve been dealt with in numerous publications since the 1970s. It’s rather remarkable that anyone would publish a critique of theonomy without first reading the m [...]

Can Secularism Account for Morality in Government?

Can Secularism Account for Morality in Government?

“Getting to Know Your Church-State Jurisdictions” is Part One of this series and “The Biblical Model of Church and State” is Part Two. This third installment asks, What is civil government’s basis for morality? Stanley Fish, writing in the New York Times,[1] describes the way various philosophical traditions understand the “role of religion and public life.” He begins by pointing out that under “C [...]
