Asher’s Birthday Trip

Tomorrow, Saturday, January 30, 2010 is Asher’s third birthday.  That may not mean a whole lot to you, but it means a great deal in the Baucham house.  We make a big deal of birthdays.  And since there are so many of us now, we don’t even have to invite a bunch of people over to have a nice party.  This year, along with his Spiderman cake and Thomas the Train shirt, Asher is getting a special gift from daddy... He’s going with me on a ministry trip to Chicago.  I’m headed up to do a ...

The Continuing Collapse: January 2010 Special Report

One of the most common objections to our criticism of the government education system is the idea that “some people don’t have a choice” since they “can’t afford” to do anything other than ship their children off to the local government school.  Well, this news bulletin should put that nonsense to rest.  If a family is truly committed to keeping their children out of the clutches of the immoral, unsafe, anti-Christian government schools, they’ll do whatever it takes.  I don’t say that because I take people’s hardships lightly; I say it because I’ve seen ...

A Brilliant Piece on Homosexuality and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (Update!)

This article is a must-read (http://firstthings.com/blogs/evangel/2009/12/temple-prostitution-a-modest-proposal/)!  Anyone involved in the debate over the church’s acceptance of homosexuality has probably tried to make this same point, but I have never heard (or read) it put so well.  In fact, it is so good that I’m not going to say another word...   VB  *Note:  My apologies to my Lutheran brethren for the earlier headline with the generic “Lutheran” name.  As a member of the SBC, I understand how upsetting it can be to be ‘mislabeled’.  I am sorry.  I meant no offense.  Chalk ...

Daddy’s Little Girl (January ’10 Edition)

“I REALIZE YOU’RE JUST PARROTING WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT” By Jasmine Baucham   I'm going to be completely honest here:   Some of us have a huge bias when it comes to arguments about education.   You know the kids I'm talking about.   They've been educated in an echo chamber, a place where the curriculum is a unified effort to teach them one way to think.   They learn to view the world through a single lens: the worldview that they're being taught.   They don't live in the real world.   They've told what to think and ...

Voddie Baucham Narrates George Washington Carver Documentary

For quite some time now I’ve thought very seriously about doing voice work.  I’ve been approached by several people working on a variety of projects, but none of them seemed quite right.  Or perhaps I just wasn’t ready.  That all changed a few months ago when Ken Carpenter at Franklin Springs Family Media approached me about a documentary he was directing.  The subject was the life and faith of George Washington Carver.  He sent me a copy of the rough cut and I was hooked. Last week I went into the studio and recorded the narration, and ...

January Question of the Month

Question Of the Month: What do you think of a Christian being employed by The Youth Ministry of the State Church of Secular Humanism as a teacher? A Loaded, but Important Question I often receive ‘loaded’ questions, but this one wins the prize.  It is obvious that the reader not only has an opinion on the issue; it is also clear what that opinion is.  Nevertheless, the question (in it’s less ‘loaded’ form) is one I receive frequently.  I have chosen to answer this one, because it’s phrasing will help me get straight to the point.  I have ...

Showdown with Abortionists Coming to My Town

According to a CNSNews story, “A coalition of pro-life advocates and religious leaders plan to gather in Houston on Jan. 18 to oppose what is expected to be the largest abortion clinic in the country.” I’ve known about this looming atrocity for quite some time.  I have been working with the Fifth Ward Pregnancy Help Center for years, and they have worked to oppose this clinic since hearing of Planned Parenthood’s intentions to target our city (and specifically it’s minority community) with it’s latest and largest abortion mill.   I have been clear in my condemnation of ...

Sam Waldron’s Open Letter on the FIC

Back in September, Sam Waldron wrote an article on the Family Integrated Church that set off a firestorm of criticism of the “movement” within Reformed Baptist circles and beyond.  Many of our opponents relished the thought of a respected scholar taking the FIC to task.  As a result, many linked to the article, drew unwarranted conclusions, and/or used it as validation for their criticisms.    Recently, Dr. Waldron wrote an open letter commenting on his blog post.  I am heartened by Sam’s words, and more so by his pursuit of truth, clarity, and charity in this discussion.  His letter ...
