The Heresy of Christian Anti-Nationalism Nationalism

Posted on November 2, 2018 at 11:35 AM Comments comments ()

In his piece, “The Heresy of Christian Nationalism” ( which someone sent me today because it obviously fits me to the tee, John Pavlovitz begins “God doesn’t bless America.” The truly astonishing thing is, this social conservative white male Christian (wait for it) ... agrees (gasp). 

To a point.


God blesses all people on this earth with rain and food an...

Confessionalism, Controversy, and the Current Climate

Posted on December 1, 2017 at 1:50 PM

With the simplicity/impassibility issue reaching a new fever pitch, I’m going to add my who-is-this-guy and who-does-he-think-he-is take by giving a very different perspective of the whole thing from a Confessional point of view. This has been my stance since before this all erupted in ARBCA. I was there, in the trenches, watching things unfold. I took this stance then. I take it again now.

First off, I like th...

Recently, the Confessing Baptists linked up to a blog from John Samson who in turn introduces us to an excerpt from Dr. James White’s book Is the Mormon My Brother? After commenting on that post, they asked me if I wanted to write an alternative vie...

For the complete series, please head over to the Decablog (



When I was first asked to do this series, it’s focus was to be only on Ancient Near Eastern Literature and the Bible. But then I started thinking. Because there is an aversion that many have not only to ANE stuff, but even...

Aronofsky's Crazy, Christless, Covenantless Noah

Posted on August 22, 2014 at 1:20 PM Comments comments ()

I finally saw Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. After reading all of the reviews, I decided I wasn’t going to give him a dime of my money. I’d watch it on Netflix. Turns out, we were able to watch it for free from Redbox, that is, until I told my wife I wanted the Blueray. She said, “But that’s not free, it...

100 Giants

Posted on February 1, 2014 at 10:55 AM Comments comments ()

This video is consistent with my research that giants were usually between 8-12 ft. tall. I wouldn't say that all of these are true, but I also would not say that all of them are not. Most come from sober local newspaper reporting in the 1800s in America, but there are quite a few that do not. Take a look for yourself.

Posted on January 29, 2014 at 3:40 PM Comments comments ()


Martin Luther, in talking about the absolute impotence of human beings to overcome their own depravity (Gen 6:5), uses a "giant" analogy for those who would believe that their will is more powerful than their bondage to sin.

"We must, therefore, beware diligently of being found among those Cyclopes, who o...

Uploading Journals and Articles

Posted on January 29, 2014 at 12:40 AM Comments comments ()


Today I began what will be a long process of uploading PDFs relating to Giants and the Sons of God (and other related topics). Many of these I reference in the book on giants, so now you can read them for your own study. You can find them under the Og Blog tab at the "Articles" tab.

It will be nice to have these all in one convenient location. Some of these are PDF scans from journals, othe...

A Sermon on Genesis 6:1-4

Posted on January 25, 2014 at 10:20 PM Comments comments ()

This is the very first Og Blog post (after the Wecome). It will be something short and yet long. This is a link to the sermon I'm preaching tomorrow on Genesis 6:1-4 called Giants in the Earth (just click the link). I've been preaching in Genesis for a couple of months now, and this "just happens" to be where we are at now. We will be uploading all of the sermon...
