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”

I’m Done With The Republican Party

Anthony W. Brooks I’m done. There is no other way to put it. When Donald J. Trump ran for office I was dismayed by his rhetoric, but decided to put that aside to prevent the likes of Hillary Clinton becoming the President of these United States. I voted for him and, for the first threeContinue reading “I’m Done With The Republican Party”

The Middle Way

Anthony W. Brooks Opinions. What are they? Opinions are not the same as facts, though they are often treated as such. They are dangerous in that regard because, as they are muttered, they invoke emotion that pushes forth a narrative that someone wishes was the reality. As the narrative grows and takes hold of theContinue reading “The Middle Way”

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”

Why Christians Should Write And Be Good At It

Anthony W. Brooks The title is hypocritical, let’s start with that. Here I am writing an article about being a good author, while I am a crappy one. Always thinking, imagining, and typing away on a blog with less than 100,000 visitors. But, I want to make one thing clear from the start, you don’tContinue reading “Why Christians Should Write And Be Good At It”

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”

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”

The Nonsense of Unbelief

Anthony W. Brooks This is a Christian Thought Blog. So it is safe to say that there will be Christian Thoughts. So in the spirit of Christian thought I want to share my thoughts, the thoughts of a Christian, and expect you to be okay with it. Of course, you should expect that my thoughtsContinue reading “The Nonsense of Unbelief”

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”

Worldview Chaos

Anthony W. Brooks I’ve always had a fascination with how people think and perceive the worlds around them. Clear thinking is the friend of liberty, it’s not until you see someone paddling a canoe with a canary that your freedom starts to diminish. What seems to be the problem officer? The problem is that inContinue reading “Worldview Chaos”

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”

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”

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”
