    The Danger of Behavior Control

    7 months ago

    The decisions we make and the actions we take are a vital part of what makes us human. Life is about making complicated choices, and yet, there are people out there that want to prevent you from being independent. They want to control your every action and zap away any shot of freedom.

    The Danger of Emotional Control

    7 months ago

    Life is impossible without emotion. It allows us to express and helps us to enjoy the good times and cope with the bad times, but when our emotions are controlled, expression, psychology, and real healing are thrown out the window. It is a danger, because it prevents reflection and empathy.

    The Trump Era Has Turned a Lot of Evangelicals Into Fighters

    8 months ago

    Although the teachings of Christ often refer to love, grace, and forgiveness, the Trump Era in American politics has seemingly inspired a large group of evangelicals to become fighters instead of lovers. Why is this behavior becoming the new norm, and how are evangelicals justifying such behavior?

    Circular Reasoning Has Ruined Discussion

    8 months ago

    Circular reasoning is a logical fallacy that starts and ends with the same thing. Religious and political groups use this strategy frequently, and no one walks away with a better understanding. It is simply a means of shutting down conversation and lacks a desire to truly prove anything.

    It Is Not a God Problem, It Is a Culture Problem

    9 months ago

    When tragedy happens, there has been a growing trend in Christianity. The expression "It is a God problem" implies that communities who do not follow Christian Law will suffer. Is America suffering because of this? Or is our obsessive culture of always needing to be right distorting our thinking?

    Politicians, Video Games Are Not the Problem

    9 months ago

    For more than 20 years now, whenever something awful like a school shooting happens, politicians have been quick to find something to blame. Since the times of Heath High School and Columbine, video games have been one of the quickest targets for politicians, but this is ignorant and miselading.

    Christians, Stop Spiritualizing Everything

    10 months ago

    In Christianity, the spirit is a real thing and influences the world around. However, there tends to be a great imbalance between the spiritual and non-spiritual, and many Christians tend to bring the spirit into every situation, whether it belongs there or not.

    Apologists, The Problem Is You

    9 months ago

    When it comes to controversial topics, at the forefront are the zealous fighters, the apologists. They are there to offer the "correct" answers, and yet, their inability to empathize actually creates more problems than they solve. Apologists, you are the problem, and I think you know why.

    The Danger of Information Control

    7 months ago

    Information is key to learning and growing, but when that information is controlled, our worldview can become skewed. Families, religions, and news outlets play a strong role in controlling the information you receive. It is a danger, because it withholds access to more knowledge.

    "Super Mario Maker 2" has finally arrived, nearly four years after the original was released. The original was the one game keeping the Wii U alive, but how does the sequel fair on the Switch? Did Nintendo create a brilliant new entry into the fresh series, or did they drop the ball?

    Modern Christianity Lacks the Willingness to Understand the Unknown

    11 months ago

    For many years, Christianity set the standard for science, progression, and understanding. Nowadays, Christianity seriously lacks the willingness to understand complex situations. Certain political topics, especially, are painted black-and-white with no room for empathy. Why is that?

    9 months ago

    For the last century, humanity has become more and more dependent on personality tests and assessments. Many companies and organizations require them and refer to them often. But how accurate are these tests? Do they truly represent us or do they represent a concept?

    Blanket Judgment Will Forever Be Wrong

    10 months ago

    Blanket judgment and stereotyping lead to poor, unhealthy, and even untrue views of the world around us. The way we see other races, sexes, cultures, and religions is influenced heavily by these awful judgments, and we need to put an end to this horrible way of thinking.

    The Rise and Fall of a Community in "Pokémon GO"

    11 months ago

    "Pokémon GO" can be a great source for building community. Believe me, I have seen it in my own life. But "Pokémon GO" can, like many other things, create some toxic and despicable behavior as well. Here is my recent experience.
