Minimum-Wage Love

Snow cones, memes, Charles Dickens, and the Book of Joshua come together to solve the problem of duty-bound relationships. One of my first jobs was working at a snow cone stand owned by some family friends when I was fifteen. At the time that I started, I made minimum wage: $7.25 per hour.  I imagine […]

Racial Equivocation & Serpentine Shepherds

Before getting into the racial equivocations, I need to say something about what is meant by “serpentine shepherds.” I don’t necessarily mean apostate shepherds, though that possibility is not ruled out. I simply mean shepherds who have begun behaving like the enemy (whatever the underlying cause might be). Genuine Christians, and even genuine Christian teachers, […]
