Legalism ad absurdum

The Theological Ninja drops an interesting plumb line: Lots of people ask me, “Hey Ninja, how do you come to your conclusions about what’s proper to do in a worship service?” To which I reply, “Silly grasshopper, I use the Bible. Sola Scriptura!” For those of you that have never heard of the Regulative Principle let me enlighten you: If it isn’t in the Bible it is absolutely forbidden. Do you see microphones being used in Paul’s churches? No dice. Do you see a church office called “worship leader?” Nope. Did the Galatians use instruments in their meetings? The...

The Feminist war on created order

Don’t be tempted to think this is stupid: You may think it is of no importance whether you gender your pets but why would you do such a thing to such an important member of your life?

Sometime around the year 2005, perhaps a few years before or after, America will enter the Fourth Turning… a spark will ignite a new mood… In retrospect, the spark might seem as ominous as a financial crash, as ordinary as a national election, or as trivial as a Tea Party… [T]he following circa-2005 scenarios might seem plausible: A global terrorist group blows up an aircraft and announces it possesses portable nuclear weapons… Congress declares war… opponents charge that the president concocted the emergency for political purposes. An impasse over the federal...

Calling the Top

Peter Thiel says the voters’ bull has a long way to run: Investor Peter Thiel— who stumped for President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention and has remained close to the president … is beginning to agree with a colleague on this thesis: “We’re now in a bull market in politics,” he said. “I’m not sure this is a good thing,” said Thiel. “But it is a fact that maybe politics is becoming more important, it’s becoming more intense, the range of outcomes is becoming greater, and that we’re in a world in which there’s a bull market...
