How to Save America

I used to be of the mindset that the United States of America had seen its glory days and is on the downward spiral now. Certainly, this has been true for the latter half of the 20th-century anyway. The America of my father's youth (1945 - 1965) is gone, never to be seen again. I... Continue Reading →

Idols v. Statues

One of the common accusations leveled against Catholic by both Protestants and Muslims is that we worship idols. One of the reasons why this happens, particularly among Muslims, but also among some Protestants too, is that they really don't understand what an idol is. Their knowledge of the subject is elementary, almost childlike. If they... Continue Reading →

The pope watched the ceremony nearby, but did not participate, except to receive... Continue Reading →

The Coming Storm and How to Prepare

I originally wrote the following essay on October 17, 2016. Though the election is long since over, it seems even more relevant now... A storm is approaching. We've been watching it build on the horizon for decades, and now it's here. The first sprinkles of rain have already hit us, and with the wind now... Continue Reading →

The Future of Evangelicalism

I've always been interesting in future trends, and I've found that when it comes to religion, the future can be surprisingly predictable, thanks to the fantastic records kept not only by various denominations, but also by research think-tanks (like the PEW Research Forum for example). I've also found that even real estate companies do a... Continue Reading →
