Daddy’s Little Girl (New Regular Feature)

As I have admitted on a number of occasions, I am probably the third best writer in my family (and that’s just because Elijah hasn’t started writing yet).  I’m also the second most prolific blogger.  My daughter, Jasmine, writes an almost-daily blog (http://joyfullyathome.blogspot.com/) that has quite a following.  She is witty, insightful, biblical, and thoughtful.  As such, I thought T.I.L. readers would enjoy a monthly selection from Jasmine’s blog.  For those of you who already read Jasmine’s blog (and I know many of you do), this may be repetitive.  However ...

The Sodomization of America Part 2: There’s More

If you thought Kevin Jennings was an isolated incident; think again.  The Obama administration is on the offensive, and they are placing homosexual movers and shakers in influential positions in order to promote their agenda.    On September 15, the Bilerico project announced rather proudly that “The White House announced Monday that it will nominate Chai Feldblum, LGBT rights scholar and advocate, to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.”   Who is Chai Feldblum (besides being a LGBT rights scholar and advocate)?  The article continues, “Chai is a Georgetown Law Professor, former law clerk to former Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, a primary ...

The Sodomization of America

For over a year now I have been telling anyone who will listen that Barack Obama is a wicked, dangerous man.  Unfortunately, those warnings have often fallen on deaf ears, or been met with anger and incredulity.  The need to assuage white guilt in this country has, to this point, far outweighed the desire to hear and speak the truth in regard to this man and his agenda.    There have also been those who decry my efforts claiming that they fall beyond the prevue of my responsibilities as a herald of the gospel.  I respectfully disagree.  With the “Hate Crimes ...

Thomas Sowell on Education

Four years ago I had the privilege of taking over Jasmine’s home education for her last ‘official’ year.  It was an absolute blast!  We worked on government/political science (line-by-line through the Constitution), history, philosophy/apologetics, systematic theology, chemistry, and more.  We had more fun than any parent/child or student/teacher combo should be allowed in a single year.  However, we both agreed that perhaps our greatest joy was the time we spent studying economics.  We read a number of books together including Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell.  It quickly became one of my favorite books of all ...

Important New Book

Paul Renfro, my fellow elder at Grace Family Baptist Church, has joined with Timothy Jones (editor), Brandon Shields, and Jay Strother to write a very important book.  Perspectives on Family Ministry, takes a careful look at the very important question, “How should the church organize it’s efforts to disciple children and teens?”  I am very excited about this project.  So many people have dismissed family integration as a “fad”, or an “overreaction” to specious data.  However, Southern Seminary professor, Timothy Jones, has taken the FIC seriously from the beginning, and this book makes it clear that the FIC is ...
