The Evolution of the Cancel Pass

The Evolution of the Cancel Pass

The current “Cancel Culture” is one terrible result of the Oppressor/Oppressed Critical Theory tsunami that is sweeping our nation today after decades of preparation, primarily in all levels of our nation’s education system. We were recently told by a friend who is a senior academic at a prestigious Ivy League university about a first year student who was being hounded and “cancelled” by fellow students, professors and administrators for something she wrote when she was fourteen. This woman...

History 2021

History 2021

I wrote the original version of the following story almost twenty years ago, as the second chapter in an anthology of short stories, Ten Lies and Ten Truths. I have rewritten parts of the story this week, to capture the new realities of History 2021 A Story Harrison Gillies sat alone in the teacher's lounge of a prestigious New England private high school grading English essays. Paintings donated by the Art Department, an oriental rug, and a couple of decades' accumulation of furniture lifted...

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Bill Gates calls Steven Pinker’s new book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, “My new favorite book of all time.” Pinker’s work is a 453 page, incredibly well researched tour de force on every aspect of life across the globe since The Enlightenment. And almost every page explores the incomparable progress we humans have made during the last 250 years to beat back death, extend life, multiply productivity, equalize rights, increase leisure, and add to...

Collision at Sea: Progressive Experiments and Human Nature

Collision at Sea: Progressive Experiments and Human Nature

I suspect that this post will make some readers angry. That's not my intent, but it's probably inevitable, because I want to ask some politically incorrect questions which no one seems to be willing to take on. This year in the Pacific Fleet there have been three collisions and a grounding of combatant ships, a terrible record previously unmatched by the U.S. Navy. A quick search online will bring up several articles about the details of each incident. The two recent, tragic collisions at sea...

Should I Model Jesus or Darwin?

Should I Model Jesus or Darwin?

As many of you know, I recently spent several days in London with a group of wonderful Believers who are originally from Nigeria, at an event for Joshua's Army.  We were joined by a pastor from Lagos, Nigeria, and by a pastor in the Nigerian community in London, both strong men of God.  Our weekend discussion was about how husbands and fathers can better model Christ with our wives and children. While there were many beautiful facets to the weekend together, the one I want to focus on for this...

Tolerance, Modesty, Chivalry

Tolerance, Modesty, Chivalry

In this season of graduation speeches, I thought it would be good to revisit three important words which we rarely hear in public use, and whose original meanings are therefore fast disappearing. I will start with tolerance, defined as a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, beliefs, practices, racial or ethnic origins, etc., differ from one's own. Notice that tolerance requires me to give others the right to believe and to say what they want, though I am not...

Election Concerns 2016

Election Concerns 2016

This year's extraordinary election is less than two months away.  Like most Americans, I am not pleased with the choices we have before us.  With all of the negative generalities coming from both sides, I decided to try to put on paper specifically what concerns me. I really am not looking to start an argument or to defend any candidate--please consider this to be a personal interim report, subject to change as more information becomes available in the coming weeks. Concerns I have about...

Give the Restrooms a Rest

Give the Restrooms a Rest

Before reluctantly tackling this issue, let me stipulate three things. As a follower of Christ, I try to love and understand everyone, while also upholding the Truth. I believe that homosexual activity is wrong—for those who engage in it, I believe that it is a form of bondage, like having an affair or being addicted to drugs, and is much less than God intended for us. We should therefore not encourage it and should protect our children from it. And, let me be clear that I am a sinner saved by...

Why Thanksgiving?

Why Thanksgiving?

As Thanksgiving approaches I am focused on two aspects of this special day which are not always on the table with the turkey, mashed potatoes, pies and other delicious dishes. The first is Gratitude.  I don’t see it much. Many of us appear to be worried, slightly angry, or downright upset about one or several issues in our personal or corporate lives. As I watched the recent demonstrations on elite university campuses, I had to ask, Do those young people have any gratitude at all for the...

The Coming Persecution For Our Beliefs on Marriage

The Coming Persecution For Our Beliefs on Marriage

Note: I apologize for the unusual length of this post.  I tried to divide it into two or three parts, but I found that the key concepts work closely together and cannot be easily separated. I hope that you find the content and conclusions worth the read. We are in a constant battle with secularists who proclaim that neither God’s rules for living nor His provision for our redemption is important or relevant for modern life. This spiritual war continues, and the recent  Supreme Court ruling on...
