In Regard To The Wilson Case: Letter Sent To The Mayor of Moscow, ID

Anthony W. Brooks I don’t live in your city or vote in your city elections. It may seem strange that I would contact you on this matter from a small town in Texas. Politics is not my forte and I don’t know what drives your politics, but I am concerned about the politics of thisContinue reading “In Regard To The Wilson Case: Letter Sent To The Mayor of Moscow, ID”

A Call To My Generation

Anthony W. Brooks Vagabonds. That’s what we are. If there is anything I’ve ever noticed about those born in the 90’s and early 2000’s we are vagabonds. Passionate, emotional, rebellious, and unstable. Narnians who wish to free our land from the tyranny of the ice queen. Unfortunately, this also means betraying the morals and valuesContinue reading “A Call To My Generation”

A Call For Unity

Anthony W. Brooks Introduction and Thanks I want to start off with a hearty thanks to everyone who has been reading. Some of you remember my last attempt at penmanship and can recall that that went about as well as Michael Bloomberg’s attempted run for presidency of these United States. This time around I haveContinue reading “A Call For Unity”

Thought Crimes and the Edge of Eternity

Anthony W. Brooks “I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” – Jeremiah 17:10 The new trailer for No Quarter November came out this week and keeping with the theme of this month Douglas Wilson said something interesting.Continue reading “Thought Crimes and the Edge of Eternity”

Why We Need to Pay Attention to No Quarter November

Anthony W. Brooks I’ve been reading Douglas Wilson for a few years now. Since I’ve entered the Reformed world there has been one name under heaven by which all people screech in division and this name is Doug Wilson. Since I’ve been teaching I’ve tried to be balanced, agreeing where I can agree and callingContinue reading “Why We Need to Pay Attention to No Quarter November”

Hello from a White, Heterosexual, Cisgender Male

Anthony W. Brooks Trigger warning! I said hello. For all of you who think I’m not being sensitive enough to other cultures who speak not my native tongue, this warning goes out to you. I am speaking English and I hope you are offended. Now with that said let’s move on to the point. IContinue reading “Hello from a White, Heterosexual, Cisgender Male”

A Different Type of Christianity

Anthony W. Brooks Moralism. Moralism is the word I was looking for. Not the type of moralism that accepts morality as being absolute, but the type of moralism that judges others by a standard higher than actually exists. This is what I’m condemning. I was always told as a child “You may be the onlyContinue reading “A Different Type of Christianity”

All My Fears

Anthony W. Brooks Things must get worse before they can get better. I know that. But I refuse to be a useless bystander living out of a refrigerator box in the alley behind my local post office holding up a sign saying, “Alms for the poor…”. I much prefer the prayer of John Knox “GiveContinue reading “All My Fears”

Kuyperian By Default

Anthony W. Brooks “No single piece of our mental world is to be sealed off from the rest and there is not a square inch in the whole domain of human existence over which Christ, who is sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’” -Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) As we come upon the 100th anniversary ofContinue reading “Kuyperian By Default”

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”

And The Wheels Keep Turning: Optimism Defined

Anthony W. Brooks It’s easy for us to read the local paper and see that the world is burning. The only questions left for us is when are the Everglades going to finish there slow descent into annihilation, when is California going to float over to North Korea, and when is Joe Biden going toContinue reading “And The Wheels Keep Turning: Optimism Defined”

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”

2020 as an Overflowing Toilet

Anthony W. Brooks Just as fodder for thought here, 9 months into the year and who could have predicted this year being this turbulent? An election year in the USA, a terrorist or two being reduced to pieces and smoke, a virus that was blown out of proportion, and still 4 months to go. Notwithstanding,Continue reading “2020 as an Overflowing Toilet”

A Brief Defense of Hard Words and Careless Words

Anthony W. Brooks Most of what I write is easy to digest. I want the reader to take it in and continue to read what I have put out there to read. My desire is to put my thoughts out there for the few people who actually pay attention to be encouraged by those thoughts.Continue reading “A Brief Defense of Hard Words and Careless Words”

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”

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”
