Guilty of Christian Nationalism?

By mereagency / June 17, 2022 / Comments Off on Guilty of Christian Nationalism?

The latest critics of the Christian faith accuse Christians of being selfish, out-of-date, non-constitutional “Christian nationalists” who would impose all the Christian rules on everyone around them. Think Ku Klux Klanners parading through Washington, DC in the 1920s to defend “Protestant America.”[1] Or the The Handmaid’s Tale or a Christian version of 1984. Christians will, they believe, impose an…

Gods of Sex

By mereagency / June 9, 2022 / Comments Off on Gods of Sex

This irony is a warning for all Christians who are quite capable of similar sinful actions and who are constantly reminded that sinners in the hands of an angry God, including androgynous practitioners, can also know his forgiving grace if they turn to Jesus, God’s Son, confess their sin, and own him as their only…

Black Fathers and White Fathers

By mereagency / April 22, 2022 / Comments Off on Black Fathers and White Fathers

Part of Critical Race Theory is the assumption that racism is inevitably related to white male heterosexuality and the oppressive patriarchy that occurs under the selfish rule of powerful father-figures. Thus, the contemporary version of a “man” in U.S. society is “hyper-masculine, straight, and white…the wealthy white male property owner.” So “…we must begin to…

Still Time to Care About the Whole Gospel

By mereagency / March 2, 2022 / Comments Off on Still Time to Care About the Whole Gospel

In his book Still Time to Care (2021), Greg Johnson, an intelligent Christian thinker, seeks to make a valid case for allowing someone who, like himself, is openly same-sex attracted, gay, and celibate to be an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. Johnson adopts a profoundly orthodox and well exegetically supported view of biblical sexuality.…

Watch Out for Millstones

By mereagency / October 29, 2021 / Comments Off on Watch Out for Millstones

Watch Out for Millstones We rarely pay attention to one of the most shocking warnings Jesus ever gave: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea (Mark 9:14).…

Is This Our Soon Coming Future?

By mereagency / September 10, 2021 / Comments Off on Is This Our Soon Coming Future?

Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò describes the globalist “Great Reset,” devised by Davos billionaires and powerful politicians, as the work of Satan and “Luciferian Globalists.”[1] Protestant American believers warn that “America is writhing in the grip of a full-scale Marxist political and cultural revolution.”[2] Some conclude that the two movements are deeply related. As responsible citizens,…

It is My Business

By mereagency / August 27, 2021 / Comments Off on It is My Business

I recently heard a sermon that gave me deep concern. It was on 1 Peter 4:12–13, a text that predicts serious suffering for Christian believers. Peter, who was crucified upside down by the “civil” authorities of Rome, wrote: “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test…

Guilty, Anyone?

By mereagency / July 20, 2021 / Comments Off on Guilty, Anyone?

How easy it is for us to feel guilty and to make others feel guilty. The damning accusation of racism divides both the culture and the church because it is one of the most deeply felt indictments one could hear. Such an indictment creates guilt and shame in the accused, yet it is deeply subjective. Anyone…

Marxism and Racism: The Issue Is Never the Issue

By mereagency / June 15, 2021 / Comments Off on Marxism and Racism: The Issue Is Never the Issue

David Horowitz was at one time a knowledgeable 1960s Jewish revolutionary Marxist. After observing from the inside the hypocrisy of Leftist ideology, he is now a political conservative. He brings to bear on our situation today by describing with frankness the stunning “logic” of Marxism: “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”[1] Horowitz…

Voddie Baucham and the Dangers of Critical Race Theory

By mereagency / May 17, 2021 / Comments Off on Voddie Baucham and the Dangers of Critical Race Theory

A Book Review of Fault Lines  (Salem books, 2021)  On the much debated subject of racism, an evangelical/reformed black American theologian (who now lives in Africa) inspires confidence, since he sees “social justice” from many sides. He proposes a balanced view of a divisive issue in his recent book, Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s…

Cancel Cancel Culture

By mereagency / April 10, 2021 / Comments Off on Cancel Cancel Culture

The Phrase “Cancel Culture” “Cancel culture” came into the collective consciousness around 2017, after the idea of “canceling” celebrities for problematic actions or statements became popular.[1] American institutions and corporations now engage in censorship that was previously unimaginable, piling on critiques of a person, business, movement, or idea. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other Big Tech giants…

Freeze Speech

By mereagency / March 4, 2021 / Comments Off on Freeze Speech

I wrote this text on February 25, 2021, a day when stunning events occurred in the USA that are massive “legal” attacks on the opening line of the Bible: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Gen 1:27).  The Equality…

Of Capitol Importance

By mereagency / January 19, 2021 / Comments Off on Of Capitol Importance

How does one make sense of the elections? Where is our culture going? What will the future hold? A colleague of mine wrote: “What we need to hear is admission of wrong and repentance.” Posting this appeal for repentance and admission of wrong from fellow believers doubtless implies that all those who in any way…

The Spirituality of Politics

By mereagency / August 24, 2020 / Comments Off on The Spirituality of Politics

As we approach the 2020 presidential elections, Christians should think deeply about their vote. Clearly, no current political party has any right to lay claim to being the G.O.P, “God’s Own Party.” Traditionally, believers (myself included) have sought to avoid taking a public political stance in order both to respect the political choices of fellow believers…

Cultural Warts or Faithful Servants

By mereagency / August 20, 2020 / Comments Off on Cultural Warts or Faithful Servants

According to recent polls, most young people “have graded Christianity, and so far, the grades aren’t looking good.” Young believers do not want the name “Christian” because of “the baggage that accompanies the label.” We all have baggage, but there is something very fishy going on here. Why is the most ethical, humane movement in…

Only Five Black Lives Matter?

By mereagency / July 14, 2020 / Comments Off on Only Five Black Lives Matter?

Systemic Racism The accusation of “systemic racism” is everywhere—in the news media, in the halls of government, in churches, and, above all, in politics. The term implies that our country’s entire “system” is shot through in all areas and by all people with the belief that one race (the white race) is better than all…

What the PCA Study Committee Did Not Study.

By mereagency / June 16, 2020 /

Our silence in this area could be seen as defeatist or as a fearful withdrawal from engagement with unbelievers on the one volatile subject (LGBT+ issues) that daily overwhelms the news media and leads many institutions, both legal and cultural, to deny Christian citizens the right to free speech and to responsible action.

Is It Really About Race?

By mereagency / June 12, 2020 /

I will never forget the revulsive, heart-wrenching image of George Floyd’s face and neck crushed into the pavement and the coldly passive face of the white cop who refused to let him up in spite of his gasping cries for mercy. The whole world, whatever its ethnicity or nationality, is outraged.  Because it was a…

Home Sweet Homeschool

By mereagency / May 1, 2020 / Comments Off on Home Sweet Homeschool

For a few weeks, during the coronavirus lockdown, we have all been homeschooling, whether we like it or not. Christians peacefully divide over the issue. Nevertheless, the shelter-in-place mandate forces us all to think about our children’s education. In Harvard Magazine’s May-June issue,[1] Elizabeth Bartholet, a law professor and faculty director of the school’s Child Advocacy…

Red Diaper Babies for All

By mereagency / April 24, 2020 / Comments Off on Red Diaper Babies for All

A Marxist Re-Definition of the Family David Horowitz, a “red diaper baby” (that is, raised by Communist parents), as well as a post-diaper, fully-committed, red Marxist student leader at Berkeley in the 1960s, is now an intellectual Jewish agnostic, whose recent book, Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America,[1] exposes the Left’s hatred of Christianity. This…

Shifting Sands

By mereagency / April 10, 2020 / Comments Off on Shifting Sands

“Lord, what are you saying during this crisis?” That is the question on every Christian’s mind. The mighty, miniscule virus is slaying thousands every day. On March 29th, Dr. Anthony Fauci estimated that the US might see between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths before the crisis fades.[1] Christians must yet remain calm, asking God to give us…

Barbra Streisand: “Don’t Rain on My Parade”

By mereagency / March 16, 2020 / Comments Off on Barbra Streisand: “Don’t Rain on My Parade”

Barbra Streisand is the top-selling female artist of all time, worth $400 million and second on the all-time popular music charts (ahead of the Beatles and The Rolling Stones), exceeded only by Elvis Presley. She has recently emerged as a secular Jewish opinion-maker, whose message to America is that we are in dire straits. Her fear reminds us…

Socialism or Free Market Capitalism? Contexts for Oneism or Twoism

By mereagency / February 27, 2020 /

In the history of socialism, while some Christians have claimed this terminology for themselves, religion and spirituality have often been expunged from the system, as an almost inevitable development.
