This old site will go down, eventually, but in the meantime I’d like to direct your reads and your comments in that general direction. See you there!

The following post is an excerpt from My Range Won’t Let Me, an eBook discussing the issues that most of us face in trying to train realistically and effectively in restrictive environments. To read the rest of the article, you can download the book when it becomes available this January. Mostly, I want this book […]

Paganism and Western Culture

Christmas and other holidays aside, Western Civilization as we know it has some distinctly pagan roots and traditions. To claim otherwise is to ignore thousands of years of history, to misunderstand and misinterpret the culture in which God has placed you, and to ultimately miss out on some important opportunities to confront the culture for […]

It’s a fact that nowhere in Scripture are we commanded to celebrate Christmas. In fact, under the New Covenant, the Bible does not establish any holidays whatsoever. What that means is – and we need to be up-front about this – is that any celebration of any holiday is strictly optional. Some holidays, such as […]

Then again, almost two months into marriage, there are few things a man will […]

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States […]

Lead Her Like Christ
