Essay: Obedience: This is an essay I wrote back in 2014 as a response to the messages I was hearing that only emphasized God's love with nothing about what God demands from us. The essay is found here.
Essay: Christendom - A Betrayal of Christ and His Gospel: This is an essay I wrote in response to David Bentley Hart's article in First Things (No Enduring City).

The Christian is tasked with building God's kingdom, destroying strongholds, and contending for the faith once delivered to all the saints. These tasks are accomplished in a variety of ways. In this site we provide many resources to assist in carrying out these tasks. First are listed four books. Church and State is a comprehensive defense of Christian nonresistance. Christianity, War, and America's Salvation Story is a companion volume to Church and State. The goal for this book is to convince Christians that Jesus' commands to live nonresistantly and love enemies is the course, not only of obedience, but wisdom. Suffering and Difficulty affirms the Biblical truth that God, in His wisdom, uses this trials to transform our character in order to become more like His Beloved Son. The Doctrine of God examines the various aspects of God's nature.
