Not a Snowballs Chance in Hell! Some Questions for Jerry Prevo After an Apology for a Snowball Fight at Liberty University.

A massive snowball fight instigated by Jerry Prevo led to complaints to the health department for Liberty University violating COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. Jerry Prevo was quick to apologize for violating the governor’s executive order. And yet here is what is troubling. Prevo is willing to apologize when he wants to and is selective about it. In the wake of the violence at the United States Capitol he has not apologized for the operating Falkirk Center which continues to spit out poisonous toxins of Christian nationalism which is what led to the January 6, 2021 coup attempt. Will he own the mistakes of the Falkirk Center and apologize for the problems its creating? Not a snowballs chance in hell.  Continue reading

Why Porn Star Stormy Daniels Has More Character and Integrity Than White Evangelical Christians

Evangelicalism is a movement that is quite dishonest at its core. Evangelicals love to hide and put up a façade that they often retreat behind. The fact of the matter is that when you consider it, a porn star like Stormy Daniels posses far more character and integrity than many evangelical Christians. Why? She’s honest about her career in porn and stripping. She doesn’t put up a façade to mislead others like evangelicals often do. Dare I ask this? Are their lessons that white American evangelicalism can learn from the porn industry especially from someone like Stormy Daniels? Chief among them honesty and integrity? Continue reading

Jeff Dornik is Promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Anti-Semitism and Conspiracies. He Illustrates Why White Evangelicalism is a Cancer in the United States

Today’s post looks at Jeff Dornik promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene on Twitter. The founder of the GK Pastors Network and Freedom First Network is pushing a proponent of warped conspiracy theories. Greene is the Q Anon supporter in Congress who has called for Democrats to be executed and says that a plane never hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Greene has also said that school shootings like Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida were staged as a false flag attack, mocked those who survived; and pushes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories involving Jews and space lasers resulting in California’s wildfires. Anti-Semitism starts by ridiculing and marginalizing Jews and denying their humanity. His promotion of Marjorie Taylor Greene is sick and in this blogger’s view indicative of why white evangelicalism is cancerous in this country. The best thing many people can do is leave evangelicalism. Jeff Dornik and culture war evangelicals show why faith is not about God. Its about using faith to obtain political power. Continue reading

Dare We Ask the Question? Was Ravi Zacharias a Sex Tourist in Bangkok? Did He Abuse Women in Thailand and Southeast Asia?

In the report on Ravi Zacharias by Miller and Martin there is one aspect that is particularly troubling and demands further inquiry. It has to do with Zacharias travels to Bangkok, Thailand. Is it a coincidence that out of all the places he could have purchased property he chose to do so in the city known for its international red light district? And with the time he spent in Bangkok this blog would like to ask while writing books is the ultimate reason Ravi Zacharias traveled to Thailand is for sexual vacations? Was he a sex tourist who spent time in the massage parlors of the red light district in Bangkok?  If he abused women in Georgia what was he capable of in Thailand? These are questions this blog post is asking. Continue reading

What White Evangelicals and Christians I Once Knew Taught Me About Faith in the Trump Era

This is a hard post to compose, but its something that I have been meaning to do for a while. The Trump era was painful, chief among it was being at the receiving end of bullying, abuse or seeing such disturbing hypocrisy. Today’s post is about Steve Papez, Chad Hart and Josiah Jenkins and his family. Its about people in ministry I once looked up to who showed me who they really were these last few years. In this case the bridges have been burned and they will never be rebuilt. And with that I find peace especially with leaving such people in my wake.  Continue reading

Grieving the Death of Evangelical Faith and Realizing Its Cost and How Much of Your Life Was Wasted

There was a tweet by Adrian Gibbs recently that looks at how leaving the evangelical system is like grief for many former evangelicals. Indeed, when you walk away from evangelicalism you do grieve as you comprehend how much of your life was stolen and wasted. Its a hard process and its akin to mourning a death. But grieving the loss of evangelical faith is a process everyone must do on their own. Continue reading

Its Time for Greg Strand to Address Christian Nationalism Inside the Evangelical Free Church of America

The EFCA needs to address the problem of Christian nationalism from a theological perspective. The dead and injured in my backyard of Washington, D.C. are owed that by evangelicalism.

Greg Strand needs to develop a program that will tackle this problem and educate people on this topic and defuse the tension.
