Endurance Sports and the Christian Life

In a time not so long ago in a world not too far away, I embarked on a dimension of my fitness journey that I had not considered before. Up until 2000, my idea of exercise had always been playing sports such as tennis and basketball. (During my high school days, I played tennis, golf, […]

TWW and Pastors Who Plagiarize

In another instance where TWW is correct, they bring up a very common issue that is pervasive among the evangelical community: plagiarism. In fact, I wrote about the same issue almost ten years ago. Gawsh I’m getting old.

TWW and 9 Marks of an Abusive Church

Actually, this is a pretty decent set of criteria. While I realize that this is a dig at the “9 Marks” paradigm of Mark Dever, the list is derived from Mark Enroth’s book regarding spiritual abuse, and Enroth makes several poignant observations. I will list the “9 marks”, and provide some commentary. (1) Control-oriented style […]

Chinese Researchers Uncover Evidence of a Great Flood

I’m just going to leave this right here.

Complimentarianism, Scripture, and the Trinity: My $0.02

When debating issues of Biblical importance, you can make your argument strong if you can establish your case in terms of (a) Creation, (b) the Fall, (c) the nature and character of God, and (d) provide strong link to the trinitarian relationship among Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (a) is very strong; (b) is strong; […]

SBC Church Fires Pastor Who Called Church to Reach Out to All Races

While the church is now saying that pastor Jonathan Greer was fired because he “did not visit church members enough”, and did not get along well with a particular deacon, as a longtime Southern Baptist I’m calling BS. Here is the link to the story. Fact is, many of these Southern Baptist churches will fire […]

Intellectual Dishonesty, Part 3: TWW and The History of Complimentarianism

In part 2 of Deb’s presentation of the history of complimentarianism, she raises an issue that is very important, while failing to notice her own inconsistency on a different matter. Whereas TWW cuts Grudem, Piper, Kassian, & Co. no slack for their “private meetings” in which they formulated an organized approach to complimentarianism and developed […]

TWW and a Complimentarian “Split”? Wishful Thinking

I must admit, I received a bit of a chuckle from Dee’s latest post at TWW. While it is true that there is a variance of opinion among the complimentarian sector regarding the roles women should–or ought, or ought not–to have in society, this is less about “division” as it is a concession that there […]

The Wartburg Watch: When They Get It Right

When TWW gets it right, they are spot-on. This is a great example of when they get it right. Before I elaborate, we need to list some stipulations. I know this seems redundant, as we’ve done this before, but I’ll do it for the sake of someone potentially reading this who is not a regular […]
