My most recent blog post exploring feminism and gender roles.

"I had shut off a part of my humanity, of who I was, in order to meet some mold that all boys are told to meet to be a man. Yet I didn’t feel like a true man created in the image of God. I felt more like a robot—someone following a scripted program rather than their divine agency."
One year ago I bought a Speedo swimsuit. Even though it’s not a classic Speedo design and actually looks more like a pair of boxer-briefs, it’s safe to say that it’s the most revealing piece of clo...

Can Slytherins Go to Heaven: A Look at Christian Ambition
I am a resolute fan of the Harry Potter books. I'm not crazy for it, off learning how to speak troll or anything. (The real fans will probably write me to correct that the troll language, of course, can't be learned by humans. Or something...) But there are...

Abraham, Isaac, and the Heresy of Reason
In Scripture, Abraham is tested by God. God asks Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, as a burnt offering to the Lord. Most of us know this story and most of us can recognize that Abraham is also a type of God the Father sacrificing God the Son. (If yo...

The Black & White Photos of Faith

Do We Have to Choose Church or Not? A Response to Donald Miller
Almost every Sunday I wake up seeing daylight filter through my blinds and I immediately panic. I'm used to it being dark when I open my eyes, and I get worried that I slept through my alarm. I'll roll over, check the clock, and (usually) find instant relie...

Sin Doesn't Hurt God, It Hurts You
I suppose I've been troubled by what I've heard my whole life about sin. For the longest time, I picture God as divine judge with a literal book in which was written every little thing you did wrong, no matter how small. And there was another book, a giant ...
