We Choose Not the Times

David J. Pence • May 22, 2024

I remember when I was younger and looking at the state of the world. I knew I wanted children, but I couldn’t help but think, “Do I really want to raise kids in a world that looks like this?”...What if this world succeeds in destroying my children?

On Christian Nationalism and the Great Commission

David J. Pence • April 23, 2024

Christian Nationalism is a controversial topic...Earlier this year, a whole new outrage cycle began in response to Oklahoma state senator Dusty Deevers...By examining this criticism, I believe we can get a good idea of what the "Christian Nationalism" debate is really about.
