Mistaken Christian Views of Culture

American Christians are no stranger to the idea of culture. But there are number of ways in which they treat the Christian’s relation to culture poorly. Some mistaken Christian views of culture are derived from two broader theoretical views: Scholasticism and Theonomy. This is part two of my interview with Gregory Baus. Listen to part one here: Rethinking a Reformed Christian View of Culture

Challenging Our Paradigms of Fictional Literature

Challenging Our Paradigms of Fictional Literature Why Fictional Literature Should Be Taken More Seriously Among Christian Libertarians Guest post by J. L.

Should Christians give thanks for Memorial Day?

You’ve seen the post; the one that informs you of the differences between Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, and Armed Services Day. You’ve also seen reminders that these aren’t three-day weekends for BBQ and beer, so remember that your rights are bought and paid for by the blood of dead soldiers. Kevin DeYoung recently wrote a blog post at The Gospel Coalition titled, Why Christians Should Give Thanks for Memorial Day. As a Christian libertarian veteran, this post made me

Does the Reformed Doctrine of Inerrancy Threaten Christian Libertarians?

The Libertarian Christian Institute is an ecumenical Christian organization which brings together Christians from a variety of theological backgrounds. Though our theological differences don’t affect libertarianism, sometimes they intersect it. And when this happens, it’s prudent to share and grapple with our differing perspectives.

He spoke about the influence of his Christian faith on his work at FEE in his opening keynote speech, which highlighted a new ebook FEE has published called, Are We Good Enough for Liberty? While there, I observed a few conversations between LCI’s Doug Stuart and other

Inconceivable! The Plausibility of a Stateless Society

Among Christian libertarians, as with other libertarians, there are differing views concerning the legitimacy, necessity, and inevitability of the state. For some, this is the worn-out debate between a view supporting stateless society(or ‘anarchism’) for a free society, and a view supporting a limited state (or ‘minarchism’) for a free society. Can libertarians, both anarchists and minarchists, cooperate in pursuit of a free society? I think they can. Nevertheless, there is genuine disagreement between these

What is a paradigm?

Paradigms are important; they influence how we look at the world. Sometimes they’re correct (more or less) but when they are wrong, they can have lasting and damaging effects for all of us. Here I introduce you to the concept of paradigms and why it’s so important to challenge them.
