Hot Takes and American Baptist Theology Turned Secularized

I grew up in the Presbyterian church but surrounded by southern evangelicals. The largest denomination in America is the SBC with about 16 million members and four out of the top ten largest denominations are Baptist ( The Assembly of God is in that top five also and if you add up those who identify […]

The First Crime Scene

We are now two years out from 2020, and the lingering tyranny is not going away. This is not a logical tyranny, but- is tyranny ever logical? They are forcing vaccination to stop transmission, but that vaccine does not stop…transmission. This is what you can expect from a President who thinks a man can be […]

Those of you who are awake have probably realized by now that we are living in politically tumultuous times. Particularly if you live in coastal leftist states or Canada.

Given the nature of these events, […]
