Coronavirus & Tyranny: A Perspective

By |2020-03-29T20:47:31-05:00March 27th, 2020|Uncategorized|

So we are a week or two into the current apocalyptic frenzy and the pre-tribulational Rapture index (a real thing) is spiking off the charts. We somehow made it through the blood moons unscathed, but here we are facing another unique moment in world history. The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has apprehended our attention and what we must do is be as judicious and shrewd as possible. This can be rather difficult given our penchant for memes: memery is clearly at its all-time high (a curve that will most certainly not be flattened). Another problem lies in the fact that there’s [...]

New book release: The Politics of Humanism

By |2020-03-01T06:10:50-05:00March 1st, 2020|Blog|

I am pleased to announce the release of my latest work, The Politics of Humanism: A Christian Response to the Humanist Worldview. This book, I believe, is incredibly important as we advance the kingdom of God in every area of life. In it I address hot topics like gun control, government education, the drug war, and immigration. A word of caution: the book will undoubtedly irritate both sides of the political aisle and I consider that a 'win'. Enjoy! From the back cover: 'The Politics of Humanism' is both a theological and practical look at the abhorrent philosophies and doctrines [...]

Keeping Focus.

By |2020-01-10T09:56:51-05:00January 10th, 2020|Blog|

Sin is the violation of God’s law not the violation of some aspect of Freudian psychoanalysis (1 John 3:4). Perhaps one of the most destructive, incapacitating fruits of pietism is the naval-gazing obsession with the war inside of a man. Retreating from his responsibility to mature in God’s law, develop, and fight, the pietist sees no culpability and thus no calling to reform his external environment. Thanks to Freud and Jung, he is too busy looking inward. Not that a man goes without mortifying his flesh! Far be it from me to suggest that sinless perfectionism is a legitimate, orthodox [...]

It's that time of year again! Below are the books that I read in 2019, including some comments. Enjoy! The Tuttle Twins Learn About the Law (#1) by Connor Boyack - Reading this series with the kids has been a real joy! You have to get the books for your children.

New Book Release: Have Yourself An Eschatological Christmas

By |2019-12-24T12:03:59-05:00December 24th, 2019|Blog|

I'm excited to announce the release of my latest book, 'Have Yourself An Eschatological Christmas: Christmas Hope in an Age of Pessimism'! From the description: 'Have Yourself an Eschatological Christmas' is a short book on a big topic. The advent of Christ was, quite literally, a history changing moment when the Triune God decided to act. The Word becoming flesh changed the game, and it changes the rest of history as we move towards the glorious promise of resurrection life. In this book, Dr. Jason Garwood explores the contours and themes of eschatology and how the coming of Christ plays [...]

Thus Always to Tyrants?

By |2019-12-02T15:24:37-05:00December 2nd, 2019|Blog|

Regarding the current administration’s second amendment plans, you should know that a day of reckoning will come very soon for citizens of Virginia, and it will set a precedent for how we advance the cause of liberty as it pertains to other social issues. To those who “back the blue” by schizophrenically waving their “Thin Blue Line” flag next to the “Don’t Tread On Me Flag,” I need to you to understand that the “blue” won’t be there for you when it comes to Red Flag laws and other arbitrary gun regulations. They aren’t there for you now when, in [...]

New Book Release: Reconstructing the Heart

By |2019-11-19T09:59:27-05:00November 19th, 2019|Blog|

I am pleased to announce the release of my latest book, Reconstructing the Heart: Towards a Theology of Emotion. The book was an incredible learning experience for me and I believe the Church has quite a ways to go in dealing with our emotions and helping others do the same. My hope and prayer is that this would be an aid to the Body as we learn to sort through the complexity of the topic. From the back of the book: 'Reconstructing the Heart' is an honest look at what it means to be emotional in all the right ways. As [...]

Hypocrisy In War

By |2019-11-13T13:42:49-05:00November 7th, 2019|Blog|

War will never be given the adjective “beautiful” because the very nature of war is one of death and destruction. You won’t find a commander describing the advancement of his army towards the enemy as being the same thing as watching a sunset over the watery horizon. The reason, of course, is because war is the breakdown of the image of God in man, and this is far from alluring. When peace is side-stepped, war is espoused, and when war comes about no one is thinking about flowers and art. War has its bruises and scars, and we better make [...]

Vaccines: The Gospel Imperative to End the Silence

By |2019-09-30T11:38:32-05:00September 24th, 2019|Blog|

https://youtu.be/VBKIHF70QB8   Download the PDF here. Transcription: Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead expose them. (Ephesians 5:11) And why not say (as we are slanderously reported and as some claim that we say), “Let us do evil that good may come”? Their condemnation is just. (Romans 3:8) “Who can make the clean out of the unclean? No one! (Job 14:4) PRAYER // Our Father and Most Gracious God: We come now to hear the ethics of your law-word and pray that our understanding would be Spirit-saturated, biblically informed, and Christ exalting. We pray that [...]
