Does Dating Mean I Get More Privileges?

By on Nov 28, 2017

  Dating. An invention that was created during the 1900s for a man to get to know a woman whom they fancied on an intellectual and emotional level. Believe it or not, when dating first came about, the girl and the boy would get to know each other in the presence of their parents! I’m pretty sure if I were to have a date with a girl in front of my parents, there wouldn’t be a second date. Fast forward a 100 years, it’s safe to say that this invention has drastically changed, and I’m not entirely sure if it’s for the better. Our society has made a rather clear definition of what it means...

How God Can Turn Any Situation From Mourning to Joy

By on Nov 14, 2017

  In the year 1941, World War 1 raged across many countries, leaving destruction and chaos in its path. A relief ship from the Red Cross was sailing towards Greece with a load of supplies, but when Greece fell to the Germans, the ship was redirected to a harbor in Alexandria, Egypt. Fearing that the ships in this harbor might be attacked, the captain planned to plunge all of its cargo into the water and sneak back out to the open sea as soon as possible. However, one person stood in the way. A young Scottish sailor on board insisted that they unload the supplies so that an orphanage in...

Environmentalism and Christianity, Like Mustard on a PB&J

  My brother is a fungalian farmer. Mushroom spores are introduced to logs, and, though there are distinct mushroom heads that sprout up, the fungus threads itself throughout the entirety of the log’s fibers. Syncretism is a fungus, one that shall seek to devour the Bride like Mordecai’s shoulder until the King returns with his eradicating hands of healing. The flashiest form of syncretism today can be found in the charismatic movement, where African spiritual paganism, with its false understanding of the relationship of the physical and spiritual realms, and how man is to “break...

Being Too Busy

By on Jul 27, 2017

    Being a pre-med student is time-consuming, to say the least. If you’re not studying, you’re working. If you’re not working, you’re volunteering. If you’re not volunteering, you’re in a lab. If you’re not in a lab, you’re in clinic. And if you’re not in any of the above, you’re freaking out about your career. And if you have a type A personality, you most likely work all throughout the week and probably serve in church too, on the worship team or as greeter or a small group leader, or all of the above. AND on top of that, you have to stay on top of your social media because who...

Man Goes Down. Woman (and Child) Go Free

By on Jul 21, 2017

    Man goes down. Woman goes free. In a cursed world, the above is a clear and succinct summary of the Bible’s teaching on manhood. Other helpful ways of stating the same reality include John Piper’s and Douglas Wilson’s definitions. “Mature masculinity is the sense of benevolent responsibility to lead, provide for, and protect women in ways appropriate to a man’s differing relationships.”–John Piper “Masculinity is the glad assumption of sacrificial responsibility.”–Douglas Wilson Wherever man goes, he is man. And for him to be a manly man means he walks with a burning zeal to...
