My Pastors Didn’t Lie To Me

May 11th, 2017|Comments Off on My Pastors Didn’t Lie To Me

For better or worse, I wouldn't be who I am without the pastors I've had in my life. For the most part, these men (and one woman) meant and did well.  They were consistent, and lived by creeds they took seriously.  There's some respectability in that.  When I left the church (the first time around), I was understandably angry.  Why hadn't the details that [...]

An Invitation to Debate Joshua Feuerstein

May 8th, 2017|Comments Off on An Invitation to Debate Joshua Feuerstein

This is an open invitation to Josh Feuerstein. Josh, I think your complete flight from reason has sullied the name of those who identify as Christian. I think your antics are a blatant mockery of those good folks like my mother who have a kind and decent faith. Let's get together in person, via videos, or even a skype call. I'd like to debate [...]

No True Christian

May 2nd, 2017|Comments Off on No True Christian

Often when I tell believers that I was once a minister and a devout believer who knew a great deal about the Holy Bible, Theology, and Religious Philosophy, and that I left after sincerely feeling that I was wrong, I am sometimes insulted by being told that I must have never been a "true" Christian. Some feel that a real believer would never fall [...]

This week, the Taylor Swift of boxing himself, Cam F. Awesome stops by to chat boxing, the importance of getting whooped, why the news is a total bummer, the God question, and what he has in common with Plato. This is by far the most casual episode of the show, it was great to have Cam on.  The quality was a little bit buggy [...]

Why It Matters That Russell Moore Is At Risk For Criticizing The President

March 21st, 2017|Comments Off on Why It Matters That Russell Moore Is At Risk For Criticizing The President

Bill Hicks once spoke of the Gulf War that he was in the unenviable position of being for the war but against the troops.  I feel something analogous to that in the latest stir between the Southern Baptist Church and Russell Moore.  For those who don’t keep up to date with the life of the SBC, my alma mater, the controversy is pretty simple.

Art And Absurdity: Reflections On Houston’s Performance Art Festival 2017

February 24th, 2017|1 Comment

As a fan of the arts and humanities, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the concept of the Absurd.  I agree with Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein, that our minds are confronted with it daily in our search to make sense of the world.  I also love the connections and passions that good art elicits.  When the two collide, some amazing work [...]
