Conversation on President Obama, Gay Marriage and Christianity (Part 3)

May 31st, 2012 · No Comments · Christianity, Culture, Politics, Religion

This is the third and final part. I would love to hear your thoughts after reading all three. Matt: Christianity struggles with extremes. There have been voices that have said Christians should have everything to do with politics and other voices who say Christians should have nothing to do with politics. Is there a healthy […]

Conversation on President Obama, Gay Marriage and Christianity (Part 2)

May 31st, 2012 · No Comments · Christianity, Culture, Faith, Politics, Religion

Matt: Great thoughts. I had thought about Rex’s posts as well when you mentioned the culture war. Part of our problem is that so many of us have nothing better to do for the kingdom than rail against stuff like this. If we were as actively engaged in kingdom work as Paul was we might […]

Conversation On President Obama, Gay Marriage and Christianity (Part 1)

May 30th, 2012 · No Comments · Christianity, Church, Church of Christ, Politics, Religion

A good friend of mine, Philip Cunningham, asked me if we could dialog a bit on our perspective on the news that Obama was going on the record about endorsing gay marriage. We thought it might be refreshing to have a healthy and productive conversation on the web instead of all the trashing people do […]

Ben Witherington on Obama’s Nobel Prize Speech

December 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Politics

An excellent post by BWIII on Obama’s Nobel Prize Speech. He highlights Obama’s influences, gives the text of the speech and his critique of it. It is very, very well done and insightful (as always). – The War President’s Peace Prize– The Influence of the Niebuhr’s

Health Care Reform May be Dropping the Public Option

August 16th, 2009 · No Comments · Politics

Some new news on the health care bill, it seems Republicans may have made some headway. Hopefully that is not all they will drop out of this piece of legislation. I am glad to think that maybe they are actually listening at some of these townhall meetings instead of just assuming that we must want […]

Dan Wallace Dismantles the Obama Antichrist Video – Last Post on This

August 14th, 2009 · No Comments · Bible, Christ, Christianity, New Testament, Old Testament, Politics, Religion, Theology, Thoughts

Dan Wallace posted an excellent piece dismantling the video previously mentioned here at KL. It is worth the read and is very thorough. I mentioned I was going to refute the video but since Dan did such a great job and mentioned several of the things I was going to mention (and then some) I […]

Popebama?

August 13th, 2009 · No Comments · Christianity, Religion

Could it be with all the Obama antichrist talk that we have missed the point entirely? James McGrath at Exploring our Matrix thinks so. I couldn’t help but pass this along with how similar it was to the Big Bird post. By the way, if you don’t know about his blog it is one you […]

Big Bird Might Just Be the AntiChrist

August 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Bible, Christianity, Humor, New Testament, Religion, Revelation, Theology

In light of the last post critiquing the ridiculous video about how Barack Obama is supposedly the antichrist, I thought I would construct a case for Big Bird being the antichrist. I have never heard bigbird confess Jesus as Lord. That is the first telling sign that big bird might just be the antichrist (2 […]

Probably the Worst Exegesis I Have Ever Seen

August 10th, 2009 · No Comments · Bible, Christianity, New Testament, Old Testament, Politics, Religion

It would take a lot of effort to come up with a worse exegesis than what is found in this youtube video. In it an anonymous person (obviously no biblical scholar) takes on one of the worst word studies I have ever seen. His attempt to prove Barack Obama as the antichrist in this video […]
