We will be making these podcasts available for her new articles as well as select articles from the past on topics of pressing importance. The primary focus of these podcasts is sexuality, particularly how leftist views of sexuality harm the public good. Laurie examines the flaws in the specious secular arguments used to normalize homosexu ...

It looks like the theological degeneration of Wheaton College continues apace. On April 27, 2022, Wheaton College held a speaking event at which visiting scholar Professor Jayachitra Lalitha, associate professor of New Testament at Tamilnadu Theological Seminary in Madurai, South India and dean of the women's studies department, discussed the arcan…

"As long as you are governed by that desire you will never get what you want. ... Until you conquer the fear of being an outsider, an outsider you will remain." In C.S. Lewis's essays—"The Inner Ring" and "Membership"—he unpacks two dangerous social forces that threaten both the church and the morality of Christians: individualism and cliques. This…
 
Cinco de Mayo was ruined at Robert Abbott Middle School in Waukegan, Illinois, the most God-forsaken state in the Midwest. It was ruined by the administration allowing the school’s openly homosexual “administrative assistant” who moonlights as a drag performer, Alfredo Isaac Zires, to sashay through the school in drag with another drag queen. What …
 
Following the unprecedented leak of the entire U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion on the controversial abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, morally and emotionally unhinged, pro-human slaughter women and their collaborators became apoplectic. Next, U.S. Senate leftists terrified at the possibility that diverse citizens in diverse states wil…
 
Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton Graduate School, author of many books and articles relating to the background, literature, and theology of the Old Testament, has contributed several episodes to this podcast.

You know that notorious slippery slope that sexual anarchists mockingly dismiss as a figment of conservatives’ hysterical imaginations? Surely you remember when conservatives argued that public approval of homoeroticism would lead ineluctably to public approval of other forms of sexual deviance. Well, here we are slip-slidin’ down that phantasmagor…
 
The Biden administration calls it the “Disinformation Governance Board” (DGB—word on the streets is that it was going to be named the “Knowledge Governance Board,” but “KGB” was already taken). The rest of America calls it the Ministry of Truth, derived from George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. In a rollout almost as wildly inept as Biden’s exit f…
 
Dr. Amy Peeler, Associate Professor of New Testament, has authored You Are My Son: The Family of God in the Epistle to the Hebrews (T&T Clark, 2015) along with articles on a range of NT texts and topics, and her study, Women and the Gender of God (Eerdmans), is forthcoming.

"We always have to answer the question: How can you be so frivolous and selfish to think of anything by the salvation of human souls?" During World War II, C.S. Lewis preached three sermons which were eventually packaged and published along with six others in 1949 as The Weight of Glory and Other Addresses. In this week's episode, Drs. Crystal and …
 
The ugly truth about leftists is that their desire for freedom extends only to members of the hive. Only worker bees enslaved to the drag Queen should be permitted to speak in the virtual public square. If Americans didn’t realize that before, they sure know it now from the unhinged responses of leftists to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. They don…

Spring is here and the purportedly silenced “LGBTQQAP” students are once again hijacking instructional time in middle and high schools for their political stunt called the Day of Silence (DOS), which this year takes place tomorrow, April 22, 2022. On this day, students are urged to refuse to speak all day, including during instructional time. This …
 
As we head into the next presidential campaign season, it would serve us well to remember how leftist hatred and the lies they created to serve their hatred have caused ordinary Americans to suffer. Leftist hatred of former President Trump resulted in the election of the senile mob boss Joe “Bananas” Biden, who has destroyed virtually every good th…

Upon completion of The Lord of the Rings, new readers often turn to The Silmarillion. But J.R.R. Tolkien's epic collection of mythopoeic stories—covering everything from the creation of Eä (the Ainulindalë), the Valar and Mayar, the creation of the Elves as well as the events of the First and Second Ages of Middle-earth—can be overwhelming. Thankfu…
 
Parents, grandparents and Christian leaders must understand how morally and intellectually unmoored activists are corrupting our children. Many of these activists are teaching our children in our government schools. They propagandize in many ways, including through literature, direct instruction, and demagoguery. They propagate highly controversial…
 
Not two weeks ago, America’s foolish president issued a foolish proclamation in which he pledged support for a bill that will jeopardize First Amendment religious free exercise and speech protections for conservative Americans. On the Transgender Day of Visibility, Biden called for all Americans to adopt his controversial beliefs on cross-sex imper…
 
Amy Nichole Allan, adjunct Professor of Theology at Trinity Christian College, is working on her Wheaton Graduate School PhD dissertation, “Anthropomorphic and Anthropopathic Depictions of God in Hosea, Amos, Micah, and Zephaniah: Rhetoric, Interpretation, and Theology.” In this episode of Exegetically Speaking, Amy weighs carefully the last thing …
 
**Viewer Discretion is Advised** The government school system—paid for by taxpayers—has been so corrupted by the depravity of leftists that schools are unfit for children. The Illinois Chapter of the Association for the Supervision of Curriculum Development (ASCD) is sponsoring its annual Pre-K and Kindergarten Conference next week in Schaumburg, I…

Who or what deserves our allegiance? Our heart? An external morality handed down by our parents or Christendom? Our intellect or science? In one of his most challenging books, The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis addresses many of the assumptions about morality, theology, and philosophy that are baked into the fabric of our modern world. Join Drs. Crys…
 
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a man for such a time as this. He has a titanium spine, a precisely tuned moral compass, and an intellect that makes him a worthy foe of leftist sophists and dissemblers in the legacy media. His tenacious willingness to challenge destructive ideas through word and deed terrifies and enrages leftists who fear he may …
 
Dr. Andrew Abernethy, Associate Professor of Old Testament and Director of the M.A. in Biblical Exegesis in Wheaton Graduate School, has authored God’s Messiah in the Old Testament: Expectations of a Coming King.

As I wrote last Friday, Illinois’ worst lawmaker, State Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), made scurrilous comments about her colleague Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine), refusing even the most basic collegial courtesy of referring to him by name, instead referring to him as “that man.” Cassidy falsely accused Morrison of engaging in …
 
If you ever doubted that we wrestle against spiritual forces of evil who call good evil and evil good, then please watch these two videos of brief statements made on the floor of the Illinois House on Wednesday. First, watch this video of one of Illinois’ finest lawmakers, the always gracious Tom Morrison (R-Palatine), who civilly expressed his vie…
 
U.S. Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson has provided sufficient evidence for the U.S. Senate to vote against her nomination to fill Justice Stephen Breyer’s seat following the full-court press he received from leftists to abdicate his lifelong seat before the 2024 election. That evidence includes her stupefying claim that she is unable to …
 
In the past three days, Twitter has suspended the accounts of the well-known satirical website Babylon Bee and of Division I swimmer Reka Gyorgy. What Gyorgy and Babylon Bee share in common is a willingness to criticize the alchemical superstitions of the “trans” cult. Babylon Bee mocked USA Today for giving the Woman of the Year award to assistant…
 
Dr. Jordan Ryan is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College and author of The Role of the Synagogue in the Aims of Jesus, among other things.
