A Primer of Circular Syllogism: Reason and Epistemology

Anthony W. Brooks For as long as man has existed we have asked the same questions. What is the meaning of life? How do we know what we know? Is there a god? Is there life after death? These questions among others make up the complex and robust subheading of philosophy known as epistemology. WhichContinue reading “A Primer of Circular Syllogism: Reason and Epistemology”

A Letter to a Friend #2

Anthony W. Brooks In my last letter, dear Athanasius, I laid out my thoughts and concerns about the anxiety I feel with every fiber of my consciousness. Your words to me were as a horse’s bridle steering me toward certainty. What I was feeling was the same thing you felt in your walk in thisContinue reading “A Letter to a Friend #2”

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”

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”

A Practical Guide To Christian Living: Seeing Things God’s Way

Anthony W. Brooks I annoy my wife. She wants to live a rather normal life and I always have to bring God into everything. She is a good Christian woman, but she believes God can be implied in a situation without having to be overtly expressed. And maybe she’s right. But I want to beContinue reading “A Practical Guide To Christian Living: Seeing Things God’s Way”

A Practical Guide To Christian Living: The Problem of Hypocrisy

Anthony W. Brooks We’ve all heard it said that the Christian Church is a melting pot of hypocrisy, a stage of platitudes that are forgotten as soon as the final amens are sung. The people go home and turn on their computer screens and stare at the skins that are uncovered for their viewing pleasure,Continue reading “A Practical Guide To Christian Living: The Problem of Hypocrisy”

The Dangerous Notion of the Christian Worldview

Anthony W. Brooks I’ve always been a diverse thinker. I have read and thought through divergent opinions that may or may not have had similarities with my own. From dystopian novels, to skeptical allegiances, to radical fundamentalist works all of these views have one thing in common. They all have a starting point. For theContinue reading “The Dangerous Notion of the Christian Worldview”

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”
