Jonathan Leeman joins CrossPolitic for a discussion on the recent church closures in California.
On Episode 13 of The CR:V Podcast we are talking with the authors of the new book The Pop Culture Parent – Dr. Ted Turnau, E. Stephen Burnett, and SBC Pastor Jared Moore about their Christian approach to pop culture and how it serves the purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ.
In this post, Denny Burk comments on the topic of research justice in the new book, Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity–and Why This Harms Everybody, writing, “Critical Theory values epistemic diversity—as if spiritism or superstition are just as valid as rational and evidentiary forms of knowing. But we must insist that reason and evidence are universal values, not white ones. They are universal because they are gifts from God to be used for his glory, not to be discarded as racist constructs.”
In this video episode of Thinking in Public with Albert Mohler, R. Albert Mohler, Jr. interviews James Lindsay on Critical Theory.

Recently a controversy related to the Southern Baptist Convention erupted on Twitter regarding whether or not suicide is sin and murder. Some participants in the discussion were adamant that suicide is a sin and murder. Others insisted the aforementioned view is not only wrong, but harmful. For example, Susan Codone, a member of the Leadership Council at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, tweeted to those she believed may have been harmed by a pastor’s tweet claiming that “suicide is self-murder.”
In this post, Neil Shenvi responds to charges he is promoting ‘slave master theology,’ writing, “we need to recognize that there are deep problems at work in our culture and in the church. The social gospel and liberation theology are not dead; they are not even dormant. They are erupting.”
In this article, Neil Shenvi and Pat Sawyer argue, “Whites are not corporately guilty for their ancestors’ racial sins (much less the sins of historical strangers) and do not need to corporately repent for them.”
