Welcome to UNenlightenment!


What I really need is to get clear about what I must do, not what I must know, except insofar as knowledge must precede every act. What matters is to find a purpose, to see what it really is that God wills that I shall do; the crucial thing is to find a truth which is truth for me, to find the idea for which I am willing to live and die.

“Kill the Commentators” and the propositionalists if you have time

Soren Kierkegaard series PART THREE   The Soren Kierkegaard (SK) series has sought to present some of the major theological/cultural concerns associated with the philosopher/theologian in light of our current situation in protestant Christianity. Although SK lived more than 150 years ago his thought is just as relevant today, perhaps even more, than when he […]

Why are EVANGELICALS not outraged; a double standard or hypocrisy?

It’s been a year now since my first rant against the comments made by Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Soon after writing that article I received a lot of feedback from Evangelicals – most was not positive. Had I come down too hard on Phil? Had I come down too hard on Evangelicals? Then, a […]

To My Sisters In The Lord…You Are Free!

When women urge their society to consider them as equals they are often labeled “feminist”. I hate that word. It does nothing but create negative feelings inside of me. However, I understand why it has been necessary. In fact, it’s my own fault I have to experience those feelings related to the term; for I […]

EMBRACING THE ABSURD: the problem of ABSOLUTES and the promise of SUBJECTIVITY

Objectivity confines God to a box that He did not create. It limits God to simple-minded systems and concepts that He destroys. Jesus did not come to get rid of the Law – there was in fact nothing wrong with the Law. He came to destroy the system around it. He did not come to bring insurance, but assurance. He did not come to bring certainty, but gave us the privilege of experiencing his mystery.

The Bible is NOT the WORD OF GOD: a polemic against Christendom

The bible is not the WORD OF GOD. And if we believe it as such, then we have made the bible into an idol. The bible has become the Church’s idol. It is the Golden Calf of our day. The ancient Hebrews had taken the God of their forefathers and formed him into their image. […]

Why Christians should NOT support Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty”.

My wife is a huge fan of this television show “Duck Dynasty”. And…I’ll admit that there have been a few times where I have watched the show and got sucked in to the quirky southern charms that makes this series such a hit. For those unfamiliar with the premise of the reality show, it’s based […]

POSTSCRIPT: The Bible is NOT the Word of God (Part 2)

Read the first article A brief note on the form of things: Last April I wrote a post titled The Bible is NOT the WORD OF GOD: a polemic against Christendom. The article was meant to be a provocation towards rethinking the way we speak about the bible. The reaction it received was very interesting […]

Homosexuality in Western Culture: a new and reasonable perspective for Christians (Part 3 of 3)

Like many Christians who seek authenticity within their faith, I have struggled to make sense of the issue of homosexuality within our culture as it relates to the biblical worldview. Authenticity within the Christian life means nothing if does not coexist with honest self-reflection. I believe most people are delusional when it comes to what […]

An Epistle from Saul of Tarsus

  Saul sends his greeting To Evangelicals spread throughout Christendom: Saul of Tarsus, along with the brothers Franklin1 and James2, bring you greetings from outside of prison. I have been thanking God for your incredible faith during the difficulties you have faced under the Obama administration. I have been told that this “persecutor of conservatives” […]
