ISIS, the Crusades, and Religious Violence

With the savage violence being reported daily from the Middle East, and with news of the recent Christian martyrs in Libya, what to do and how to respond has been a hotly debated topic. In most conversations, the only points of debate are how much military power needs to be exerted and how swiftly these powers should act. While this is expected of mainstream political players which are essentially characterized by their use of force, such attitudes are becoming increasingly more common in Christian circles.

Josephus on the Origin of the State

In The Antiquities, Josephus mentions that the first human government was built by Nimrod, the mighty hunter from the book of Genesis. This appears to be consistent with Genesis; no other organized government (unless you count a “clan”) is mentioned before his. Genesis is, first and foremost, a book of origins, and thus this original human government can arguably be taken as archetypal.

Trump: A Presidential Post-Mortem

In the wake of this highly contentious election, it would be useful to issue an early autopsy on the Trump presidency — not so much about why he didn’t win, but rather the good or bad of his policies and actions as president. Through such a post-mortem, I think it will become clear why pessimism about America is well-founded for libertarians and classical liberals today.

“Christian America” Is Dead. Where Does Our Hope Come From?

When it comes to the contemporary political and cultural landscape, I believe a large segment of American Christians feel completely surrounded with no means of escape, and they are fighting like hell against their enemies. To be sure, not every American Christian feels this way — only those who identify America, consciously or subconsciously, as fundamentally Christian in its character and values.
