Thoughts

“I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books.” -C.S. Lewis

“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” – Saint Augustine

“People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.” – Mother Teresa

New Year, Same Me

New Years has always been a weird time for me. I don’t think I’ve ever quite wrapped my head around the whole concept. I don’t understand that even though we have a holiday that is explicitly centered around new beginnings, it’s implicitly centered around the futility of change.   Let me explain:   Every year […]

Abortion

The Rise of Pro-Life

We are now living in a time where 56% of Americans believe abortion to be morally wrong. This is up substantially from 1995, where only 33% of Americans polled would identify as pro-life. So what has caused such a rise in the pro-life movement? Many different people have many different theories on why Americans have […]

The Problem of Sex

According to everything we believe to be true, sex should be at an all time high. Ever since the sexual revolution of the 70s, sex has slowly morphed from something that never got a lot of limelight into something that is normal for most people to talk about and discuss. Overall, society has become much […]

Why Relationships are Important

The battleground of culture isn’t university. It isn’t political debates or marches against any institution. The battleground of culture is in relationships. The more I think about it, the more I realize that people don’t change their minds overnight. Rarely do people change through debate or argumentation. We learn information from those we appreciate and […]

How to Survive Thanksgiving

October is almost over and Thanksgiving is almost here: a holiday filled with food, fun, and fights. While I do enjoy a good argument, it is important to me (and should be important to everyone) that my family holidays aren’t ruined. It would be a perfect world if everyone could discuss ideas without being personally […]

Christ or State?

How does a Christian fit into a political system?   This must be a question I have asked myself a thousand times over. I used to consider myself pretty apolitical. I honestly tried my best to ignore politics and not care. But then one day, something funny happened:   I learned morals.   I remember […]

Fight for $7.25

“Wouldn’t everyone like to be paid higher minimum wage?” I think to myself as a poor college student. It is no secret that Democrats have been attempting to raise the minimum wage for several years now. Most clamoring for a $15 federal minimum. And while I won’t lie, that sounds incredibly nice: Is that really […]

OPINION: You Shouldn’t Be Afraid Of Arguments

The internet provides a forum for the free expression of ideals and values. An intellectual melting pot where some of the brightest minds compare and dialogue about several vast issues. Social media added a social element to this forum. People could put themselves on display and interact with other people. Many people debate whether social […]

Why College Is Worth It

It is that time of year again where my tiny little Bible College spends a few days on a lake. We study together, eat together, and have fun together. I do not know any other school that spends syllabus week on a lake. But it is times like these when I am reminded of why […]

Stop Blaming The U.S.

Pollution is a monster. Many believe that America should be doing more to help prevent the pollution that is slowly killing the planet. This has been brought to more attention than usual due to California’s recent ban on plastic straws [1]. And before that, most were in an uproar over President Trump’s decision to leave […]
