March 25 2019 By dvirtue Keep that Same Energy: African Methodists and the Whole Black Testimony

As someone on the conservative side of a similar conservation, which took place about 15 years ago in the Anglican communion, this division between largely white progressive voices in North America and conservative voices in Africa feels familiar. The major difference is that the Methodists eventually allowed African voices to have a full hearing while my own communion has managed, much to our shame, to stifle and distort the voices of black and brown Anglicans.

March 21 2019 By dvirtue Passive, Aggressive, or Assertive? What does Christian love look like in our verbal interactions?

For Christians dealing with each other and dealing with non-Christians, it must be asked, "Are we supposed to be aggressive, passive, passive-aggressive, or assertive?" I think that the NT says that it depends on the situation. It is not always easy to tell which situation is which.

March 18 2019 By dvirtue "I'm Gay, Can I Come To Your Church?" Acceptance Vs. Approval

Pergamum was a center for "Caesar Worship" in that part of the Roman Empire. The Christians there were commended for not bowing to "Caesar as Lord" but only acknowledging "Jesus as Lord" even in the face of martyrdom. However, they were apparently compromised theologically and morally by going along with the culture.

March 15 2019 By dvirtue A Christian Code of Ethics for Using Social Media

The following is a simple code of ethics (5 Questions) for the follower of Jesus to consider before one clicks the "enter" button. It is intended for the follower of Jesus to remember that even in cyber-space we are witnesses (either for good or for bad) for Jesus Christ modeling a life which is supposed to emulate him.

March 14 2019 By dvirtue I Was America's First 'Nonbinary' Person. It Was All a Sham

Three years ago, I decided that I was neither male nor female, but nonbinary--and made headlines after an Oregon judge agreed to let me identify as a third sex, not male or female.

Now, I want to live again as the man that I am.

I'm one of the lucky ones. Despite participating in medical transgenderism for six years, my body is still intact. Most people who desist from transgender identities after gender changes can't say the same.

March 10 2019 By dvirtue The Last Days of Christian America

Al Mohler, who is regarded as a major leader of the "Christian Right" has gone on record saying, "The most basic contours of American culture have been radically altered. The so-called Judeo-Christian consensus of the last millennium has given way to a post-modern, post-Christian, post-Western cultural crisis which threatens the very heart of our culture . . . Clearly, there is a new narrative, a post-Christian narrative, that is animating large portions of this society."

Follow especially discussion at "Juicy Ecumenism," the blog for the Institute for Religion and Democracy (IRD). As an historical footnote, the IRD was active at Lambeth 1998 in helping support African bishops to see the issues at stake and to foil the Communion Establishment plan to revise the biblical norm.

February 25 2019 By dvirtue "PAY ATTENTION TO POWER": Anglican Hypocrisy, Part Two

Some of these inequities involve fairly obvious things like money and status. Canterbury is spending large amounts of money to jet around the world and meet with bishops, to bring them to pre-Lambeth gatherings, including a Primates' Meeting in January 2020, and to finance the Conference itself.

February 23 2019 By dvirtue Pied Pipers of "polymorphous perversity" penetrate schools luring kids like rats

Gay activists have discovered the same truth. By fusing this Ignatian truism with the Freudian dogma of "polymorphous perversity," the Pied Pipers of Stonewall are wreaking revenge on heterosexual conformity and leading our children into the Weser-like waters of sexual and moral morass, where they will drown like the mass of mesmerised rats, as in the dark legend of the Rat-Catcher of Hameln.
