Doubtful Christianity

Anthony W. Brooks It’s a shame. Disappointing. I didn’t see this coming. Why didn’t you talk to someone. These are the responses that are littering the internet whenever a serious Christian icon falls away, “deconstructs”, from Christianity. We always put so much fuel in our faith tanks that comes from these prominent, sometimes mythical, socialContinue reading “Doubtful Christianity”

Masking Up In Worship

Anthony W. Brooks “Whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he would remove the veil, until he came out. And when he came out and told the people of Israel what he was commanded…” – Exodus 34:34 This pandemic has been hard. For many involved the choice is clear, be careful,Continue reading “Masking Up In Worship”

R.I.P. Evangelicalism

Anthony W. Brooks I am tired. I am tired of pretending that evangelicalism is anything more than political grandstanding. The church and the Christian Faith must be more than this. When did it become okay to say the pledge of allegiance in a worship service, or sing the National Anthem? When did this become theContinue reading “R.I.P. Evangelicalism”

A Brief Word on Doug Wilson

Anthony W. Brooks There has, over the last two decades, been an uproar. No, take that back, I can’t remember the word but it conveys the sound of a thousand yapping chihuahuas. Whatever the sound is it has to do with Douglas Wilson, pastor of Christ Church Moscow ID, editor of Credenda Agenda, former presidingContinue reading “A Brief Word on Doug Wilson”

Sending Our Children Into the Upside-down

Anthony W. Brooks I don’t get much joy from writing about the end of western civilization (though some of you think I buy this joy in 50 gallon drums), but alas it is necessary to invoke my inalienable right to think and say what I want and you be okay with it. My hope inContinue reading “Sending Our Children Into the Upside-down”

The Virtuous Ivory Tower

Anthony W. Brooks I haven’t had an opportunity as of yet to smoke a cigar with brandy in hand and sit around and talk politics with the guys. That may be fun for some people but for me a good book and some Oreos are enough. Maybe it’s a lifestyle to look at the lowerContinue reading “The Virtuous Ivory Tower”

Young Dragon Slayers Learn from Old Dragon Slayers

Anthony W. Brooks I don’t get much joy telling about my own sins, but if I have to learn from them the I guess it is high time I write about them. I am keeping with the theme of slaying dragons that I wrote about here for the purpose of continuity. If man’s chief endContinue reading “Young Dragon Slayers Learn from Old Dragon Slayers”

Raising Boys to Slay a Dragon

Anthony W. Brooks It’s difficult to say where our culture is taking us, but one thing is for certain. Masculinity is being attacked and replaced by femininity and called masculinity. The church has fallen into this trap and it is causing the church to be without real men who teach young men to become grownContinue reading “Raising Boys to Slay a Dragon”

Doug Wilson Cancelled

Anthony W. Brooks Though this seems like old news and far from productive, I have noticed the debate is just now coming to a simmer, and eventually will be boiling hot. I am a long time member (though not consecutively) of the Reformed Pub group on Facebook. I remember when the group was only 8,000Continue reading “Doug Wilson Cancelled”

The Church in the Culture: A Primer on Theonomic Transformation

Anthony W. Brooks 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all thingsContinue reading “The Church in the Culture: A Primer on Theonomic Transformation”

A Mythical Giant Named Sexism

Anthony W Brooks In a recent conversation on the interwebs “He Who Shall Not Be Named” was memed for the millionth time this month by a professional troll with less than pure intentions. This conversation involved a quote from one of his books on marriage (one of his more controversial topics) and the quote basicallyContinue reading “A Mythical Giant Named Sexism”
