An excerpt from Conservative Review… Yet another self-proclaimed Christian church in America is putting on its own version of “The Vagina Monologues” later this month. What’s that you say? You haven’t heard Plymouth Congregational Church in Portsmouth, New Hampshire is the latest to join this trend? They are kicking it […]

Weekend Edition: Guard the Pulpit


Alright, I need to talk to the Calvinists out there. Stop with the John Piper memes for five minutes and gather ’round; it’s time for a family discussion. Like you, I came to Calvinism by the mercy and grace of God. I’m one of you. I named one of my daughters […]

Calvinists, We Need to Talk





It’s not at all uncommon for me to receive unsolicited books in the mail in exchange for a kind review (rarely do I), and it’s not uncommon for heretical book sellers to send free books to churches like a drug dealer hands out free crack to get people hooked. When I […]

Theonomists are spiritual orphans of the twentieth century. Without a lineage predating RJ Rushdoony and being repudiated as a factious and doctrinally troublesome by every orthodox branch of Christianity, the few clingers-on to the doctrine of civil-Judaizing have always been eager to find theonomicish people in the annals of Christian history […]

Podcast: The UHaul Witnesses Prophecy



There is a certain Intelligentsia-class of evangelical leadership in America, the type and kind that wax eloquent their postulations not from local church houses, but from ivory towers of academia and twentieth-floor suites of 501(c)3’s in the Beltway. Our evangelical overlord-types quote Flannery O’Connor more than Jesus, drink Starbucks with their […]

Why Our Evangelical Leaders Need to Shut Up About Immigration





We had the opportunity to interview Conrad Mbewe on the topic of polemics and charismania. Mbewe agrees that polemics is a very important field, and even discussed the possibility of a department and chair of polemics at his university. We are thankful to see polemics again rise to a level […]

Podcast: Weekend Edition


You should keep watching, listening and reading WWUTT material. It’s pretty good. That being said, I’ve been wanting to add two cents to the recent discussion surrounding a brief but brusque soundbite on a recent WWUTT podcast. While critiquing Nabeel Qureshi’s affinity for Word-Faith and Montanist cult, Bethel Church Redding, […]
