Reformed Papists, Being Offended, and Rushdoony

There really is such a thing as Reformed Papists. Sometimes called Romish, or Romanists, these men will balk at these apt handles. They will mock and they will scoff. After all, THEY believe in Sola Fide and all that good stuff. Surely THEY can’t have anything to do with Rome. But they can, and many... Continue Reading →

A Tale of Two Kingdom Ecclesiology: The Road to Rome and Escondido

Progressivism Trumps Pietism

Earlier this week I stumbled upon this quote from a book that I read a few years ago. The book, I Wear the Black Hat, is intriguing and entertaining. It could be described as "pop-psychology". It's about why we root for or are intrigued by the bad guys. Think Darth Vader, Hannibal Lecter and so... Continue Reading →

  One of the most important truths that I have learned over the last several years is that whenever you discern a problem and you attempt to correct that problem, you must be very careful to not over correct. Whenever you realize you are up to your knees in filth in one ditch, you don’t... Continue Reading →
