But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

What’s The Point Of Inconsistent Philosophy?

Written by
Philosophy is like math to me: there’s always a correct and consistent answer to every problem. If 2+2 equals 4, then 4+4 equals 8. Different variables and different problems do not change my methods for achieving the correct answer. If 2+2 equals 4 today, then it equals 4 all the time....

What Does It Mean To Be Black?

Written by

I’ve been called “Black on the outside, White on the inside” many times. And that’s because too many Black people agree with White racists that a Black person’s skin colour shapes who they are.
