Heretics that are Holier than You

Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, and Emergents: What Do They Have in Common? Lawlessness comes in two main forms: Legalism and Antinomianism. These two heresies are dealt with extensively in the New Testament, so my point in writing this article is not to delve deeply into those two forms of legalism. No, what I want to talk about is moral-superiority-complex of heretics… (more…)

How to Not Debate What Doesn’t Matter

There are some debates that just shouldn’t happen. Unfortunately, we often get sucked into such debates because we are zealous to contend for the faith, temporarily blinded by the fact that the person who is arguing against Christianity is arguing fallaciously in one way or another. For instance, Euthyphro’s Dilemma has absolutely nothing to say about God (i.e. the Triune… (more…)

Is God a “Failed Hypothesis”?

Philosophical Confusion Of all the meaningless statements that atheists make,[1] I think the most irritating among them is the claim that “God is a failed hypothesis.” It isn’t just the arrogance that fuels statements like this that I find irritating, it is also the fallacious nature of the proposition itself, for behind the statement are metaphysical presuppositions that the atheist… (more…)

Calling a Spade a Spade in the Aftermath of May 21st

A Personal Testimony When the Lord saved me a few years ago, I never thought I’d wind up sitting under the “preaching” of a cult leader whose only intention was to tear my faith in Christ down, tear my wife and I apart from one another, and, well, gain my allegiance, worship, and adoration. I was bright-eyed and filled with… (more…)

The Origin of Postmodernism According to Scripture

The Word, Power, and the Marginalization of Others by the “Powers that Be” As I’ve tried to show in my other posts on Emergianity (i.e. the Emergent “Church” [Religion]), postmodern thought seeks to subvert orthodoxy in order to establish unorthodoxy. This is done by a deconstructive process, whereby language is stripped of any fixed meaning so that all meanings are… (more…)

How to Deal with Emergianity (Pt.2)

[Continued from Emergianity] How to Never Say Anything After thoroughly dismantling the linguistic theories of the prominent analytical philosophers and liberal theologians of his day by exposing how logically inconsistent with themselves these theories were, philosopher Gordon H. Clark wrote: There is indeed a way for these people to avoid logical difficulties, paradox, and analogy. To quote one of them:… (more…)

How to Deal with Emergianity (Pt.1)

What is “Emergianity”? Before we can know how to deal with Emergianity, we need to define Emergianity. In a word, Emergianity is what is commonly called “the Emergent Church Movement.” Since the Emergent Church Movement is neither a church nor a Christian movement, at least in any Biblical sense, I feel like I have a moral responsibility to not call… (more…)

“Paul’s” Pneumatology?

Flesh Versus Spirit: A Brief Study A very brief and superficial reading of the New Testament by otherwise brilliant men in the past has led some to conclude that Paul the apostle constructed certain doctrines fundamental to the Christian faith out of thin air. In particular, these critics claim that Paul’s pneumatology (i.e. “his” theology of the Holy Spirit) is… (more…)

LDS Temples — The Requirements for Salvation in Mormonism

There aren’t to many things that will get me fired up very quickly. Typically, when functioning in an apologetic roll, I am pretty calm, cool and collected. I try to be logical in my thought processes and cogent in my speech. That said, I want to bring to you something that makes me lose my cool, something that even as… (more…)
