Throwback: Lecrae and Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is one of the leading causes of crime in the United States. Second only to a lack of true fatherhood, the problem of sexual abuse is more than nationwide- it's universal. Lecrae is just one voice in a sea of many, yet his testimony rings true with many of us. Now a famous …

Monday Q&A 2: The Character of God pt.2

We're back again, continuing our series on the character of God. To cap it off, I am answering the last 7 questions from Stoa Apologetics' worksheet questions on the character and being of God. In last week's post, I answered the first seven, mainly talking about the importance of God's power and how it plays …

Lex Luthor’s Guide to the Goodness and Power of God

Inspiration can come from the strangest of places. I have, in my three years as a blogger, been inspired by a bagel, a cup of coffee, and other, non food-related objects. In this case, our inspiration comes from the badly-received movie "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice". The movie was quite predictable and, to nobody's …

The Glory of God in a Bagel

Have you ever had a bagel? You know, a nice fat one with extra bread, maybe with a little fried banana or a roasted ant on top? Yeah, me neither. I prefer a normal bagel, thank you very much. A little peanut butter or apple butter, and I'm set for the afternoon. Throw in some …

Monday Q&A 1: The Character of God pt.1

Apologetics is a key aspect of the Christian faith. A Christian without the ability to defend his faith is a knight without his armor, susceptible to attacks from the enemy. Because of the important place Apologetics holds within the Christian faith, it must be understood that to neglect the subject is to, in some ways, …

Throwback: Africa’s Misconceptions

After publishing over four posts on this subject, we have finally created an almost full collection of African misconceptions. Africa, it seems, is misunderstood. To date, we have published two posts on African Misconceptions, one on Uganda's Technology, and another on crazy facts about Africa. These posts averaged 1,250 words apiece, showing that there truly is a lot of …

10 Tips to Understand and Better Learn About the Opposite Sex

Let's face it: we teenagers aren't all that great at relating with the opposite gender. The common stereotype of the bumbling teenage male and the cutesy teenage female are nearly correct. The distancing between genders has become a legitimate issue, one only fixed through a common understanding and trust between those on both sides. My …

Why 2020 Has Been the Best and Worst Year of My Life

On January 2nd, 2020, I published the most ironic blog post of my life. Titled "Why 2020 Will Be the Best Year of My Life", the post outlined my plans for the year and detailed how I thought the year would go. Boy, was I wrong. In fact, I was so far off, it's rather …

What “The Hunger Games” Taught Us About Literary Worldview

Suzanne Collins' famous story "The Hunger Games" is arguably one of the greatest books of the modern day, particularly for its unique first-person style and sci-fi worldview. The style was not, however, the focus of my attention as I read the series for the first time in 2018. The developing characters and dicey plotline did …

Here we are again, back with yet another "Follower Milestone" post! We were having these so often, I skipped what would have been the "700 Followers" and "800 Followers" posts, instead waiting for the bigger milestone- 900! But in all seriousness, you guys have been fantastic. You've helped me with constructive comments and criticism, you're …

The False Pretense of Teenage Christianity

Last week, I blogged about the true meaning of our teenage years. In that post, I laid out what our culture expects of us, the teenagers. Directly after, I gave a call. I called all teenagers into the "Do Hard Things" movement, a commitment to rebelling against low expectations and doing the hard things. But, …

How to Prepare for Cultural Transition

Cultural transition is one of the worst experiences a human being can go through. It seems, at times, as if you've changed worlds, and adjusting to this massive change drains more than energy; it drains your spirit. Why does this happen? Is there an explanation for the difficulty in cultural change? Firstly, what is cultural …

The Glory of God in Rap

Christian rap is completely underrated. It has been spit on, downtrodden, and hated for so long, it's rather pathetic. I have seen this treatment come from all sides, including the Christians. Why? What's so bad about some Christian guys rapping? Nothing, actually. See, here's the problem. Out of all the musical industries, rap is probably …

What Does It Really Mean to be a Teen?

Today's teenagers are fed a steady mantra. "You're just teens, what can you do?" "That's too ambitious, why don't you aim a little lower?" Personally, I'm sick of hearing it, whether from those close to me or even people that hardly know me. For some reason, we are classified as children with the bodies of …
