Christian Nationalism and the Great Hibernation

Volume 28, Issue 6, September 2022 Christian attempts at hibernating from corrupt world systems, people, and governments, are nothing new.  From monasticism in post-apostolic times to utopian societies to cults to the new monasticism, Christians and others have sought protection throughout the years from tyranny, moral pollution, and governmental overreach.  Today such is found in […]

The Battle for God – Part 5

Volume 28, Issue 5, June 2022 In the previous “The Battle for God” article,” I affirmed general agreement with Classical Theism and its Nicene and pro-Nicene understanding of the Trinity. Yet I registered a concern that the trajectory of some supporting the Great Tradition is toward what has been termed a theological interpretation of Scripture […]

The Battle for God – Part 4

 Volume 28, Issue 4, May 2022 Since publishing the first three parts in “The God Debate” series, I have read Matthew Barrett’s Simply Trinity and the most recent issue of The Master’s Seminary Journal, both of which strongly defend Classical Theism and were critical of Eternal Functional Submission of the Son (EFS). In addition, two […]

The Battle for God – Part 3

Volume 28, Issue 1, January 2022 While debates concerning the nature of God can be traced throughout church history, often resulting in creeds such as Nicene (381), which established a standard of theological orthodoxy, battle lines in recent years have been drawn over the issue of submission of the Son to the authority of the […]

The Battle for God – Part 2

Volume 27, Issue 9, December 2021 In part one of this series, the origin of the debate between classical theists and theistic mutualists concerning the nature of God was introduced. The essence of the discussion centers on whether or not the Son has eternally submitted to the will of the Father or just submitted during […]

The Battle for God – Part 1

Volume 27, Issue 8, October 2021 While most conservative evangelicals were resting comfortably in the Trinitarian understanding of the Godhead, as stated in the Nicene Creed (AD 381), a storm was brewing on the theological horizon of others.  In just the last few years, a major war over the very nature of God has erupted […]

My Favorite Books Volume 6

Volume 27, Issue 7, August 2021 Since I began writing book reviews a number of years ago, it seemed to some that the majority of these reviews dealt with books that were either errant or at best mixed in their biblical accuracy.  So, in August 2004 I began listing, by category, the better books that […]
