PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• In Revelation 22:13, Jesus said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” This is a powerful illustration for us to understand the timelessness of Jesus. Because He is the Son of God, it’s easy to assume that God came first. […]

Into the Wood Homeschool

The only reason I bring up religion at all, is because it tends to play such a large part in people’s choice to homeschool, as well as what curriculum they choose. Let me preface this by saying that Woodsman and I have nothing against religion. Woodsman was raised Baptist. I was raised Catholic. Our separate […]

Fitly Spoken

One of my first priorities of summer was to clean out closets, throw away all the used-up, favorite pencils that my kids couldn’t bear to break fellowship with during our school year (sssshhhh), and purge the bookshelves of books that weren’t worth the space they were taking up. While culling the mediocre ones I paused […]

Fire and Light

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who […]

Practical Theology Today

Spoiler alert. This is part one of a two (or more) part series of posts. I am committed to keeping posts short for readability, thus the need for multiple editions. You’ll understand the reason as we continue… A dozen years ago, I was prepping for a confirmation retreat for about 50 kids and their leaders. […]

The Evangelical Calvinist

Theories of salvation remain a contentious thing; particularly among us Protestants. We have such an array of theories that it becomes a task in and of itself to simply index them. But for our purposes, I want to focus on a particular thread as that is given to us in a Catholic and medieval development. […]

Eclectic Theist- J.W. Wartick's Random Interests

My quest to read (at least) one biography per President continues with Ulysses S. Grant, the Eighteenth President of the United States. The biography I chose with my selection process (reading reviews online and utilizing and this website- My Journey Through the Best Presidential Biographies) was Grant by Ron Chernow. Here, I’ll offer my thoughts on that […]

July Christmases

I’m guessing, most people who read this will think at first glance, “Ah yeah, being vulnerable is difficult, it’s something I don’t want to do, it seems burdensome, indeed, I don’t want to carry this burden.” But that’s almost the opposite of that which I’m going to speak about here. You see, vulnerability is a […]

Coalition of the Brave

Since David of Theology Archaeology has declined to post rebuttals of his position (he has deleted them under the guise that they contribute nothing, which I suspect is code for ‘they didn’t agree with me’), I’m reproducing my comments here, so everyone can see precisely what he would not offer up a reply to. I […]

Draughting Theology

My wife and I have often joked that we have the two most guilt-inducing careers for outsiders.  SHW is a dental hygienist.  When folks find that out, they immediately start into their excuses for not going to the dentist or uncomfortably laughing at their inability to start a proper flossing regiment. When they find out […]

Wakefulness Theology

Destruction or (symbolic) Armageddon, causes people to be gathered together into the Ark. Architecture, design means focusing on components or elements of a structure, in this case being The Ark. Noah’s Ark, The Crucifixion, and The Ark of The Covenant are all symbolically represented by 717, 1717, and 44. 717 is 1717. All three represent […]
