“Pro Lifers Are Anti Women” and Other Logical Fallacies: a rebuttal to common pro choice arguments

This week there was an unlawful leak to the press that SCOTUS is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade. While many pro life advocates rejoiced, many pro choice people became enraged. Truly this is one of the most polarizing times in history. While I find that tragic, I do not believe this is an “agree… Continue reading “Pro Lifers Are Anti Women” and Other Logical Fallacies: a rebuttal to common pro choice arguments

Birth Story

It’s been awhile since I’ve written, and while this is not yet finishing my series or theological, I still want to put it in words for the glory of God. I want to share my birth story. First, some back story would be helpful to understand why my husband and I made the decision for… Continue reading Birth Story

James: Arrogant Autonomy

Most of us have heard the phrase, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” But I haven’t just heard it: I have lived it out multiple times and this year was no exception. Early in the year, my husband and I started trying for a baby. I was throughly convinced I… Continue reading James: Arrogant Autonomy

James: Enmity With God

I always considered being against God to be a huge, grievous, outward act. It had to be something like blaspheme, sexual immorality, murder, hate, so on so forth. I believed this until last year when God convicted me of my friendship with the world. I, like everyone else, was outraged when I saw the video… Continue reading James: Enmity With God

James: Wisdom From Above and Below

In John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, the main character, Christian, ran into a man on his journey towards removinghis burden and reaching heaven. The man he met was named Mr. Worldly Wiseman. He told Christian that there was an easier way to remove his burden. He said he was older and wiser so his words… Continue reading James: Wisdom From Above and Below

James: Teaching and the Tongue

I don’t want to write this blogpost. In fact, passages in the Bible like this make me wait to call it quits on Failing Forward all together. It makes me want to cancel my women’s group study from here on out. And it definitely makes me want to throw off my fantasies of writing a… Continue reading James: Teaching and the Tongue

James: Faith and Works

While there have been abrupt points made by James so far, we’re really getting to the meat of why people question if James should be in the Bible in this next passage. Throughout the book, but especially in 2:14-26 James states that faith without works is dead. This sounds as if it’s in stark contrast… Continue reading James: Faith and Works

James: Partiality and Mercy

I recently started reading a book called Live Not by Lies by Rod Dreher. It is a phenomenal book about Christian dissidence in the face of totalitarianism. Rod Dreher interviewed many people who escaped from communist regimes. He asked a Russian Orthodox man why the people fell for the Bolsheviks propaganda. The man explained that… Continue reading James: Partiality and Mercy

James: Speak, Listen, Anger

I’ve spouted off without thinking more times than I can count. I’m ashamed of how quickly I have jumped to conclusions or ideologies before thinking them through. I so often regret not carefully weighing my actions and reactions. Yet, I have never regretted taking time to think through and gather information before giving an answer… Continue reading James: Speak, Listen, Anger

James: Trials and Temptations

I was told when I was younger that if you wanted to test your marriage, do home improvement together. I chuckled at that and didn’t think much of it until my husband and I began working on the farmhouse we bought. We currently are living through deconstruction and construction in the majority of our house.… Continue reading James: Trials and Temptations
