God, Can you Hear Me Now?

I scream and shout But you teem with clout And cloud my loud dreams team me with your stout house. Unanswered anger manifests festering distress upset with your process. Regret rejects your rest protests your professed blessed intellect. Inspect grotesque events that express the effect of bereft prayers that expect you to forget I’m oppressed […]

This an Audible

Pull up with they bangas out, taking the gangsta route, leave your brain hanging out, we find this entertaining now. I’m interchanging vows with vowels integrating how we’re raising towns of generations proud of their painted crown on gun’s reigning sound. Bullets raining down now mama’s staining gowns with tears retaining frowns. This tainting is […]

Ancient Demonology and Modern Pneumatology

As we look at the current state of pneumatology, there is very little discussion on other aspects of the spiritual realm.  In some pneumatologies, it seems that there is no other spiritual realty besides God and human spirits.  The current neglect of demons in academic studies of Holy Spirit can leave us unprepared on how […]

Pneumatological Orthopraxy

As I see it, orthopraxy is the culmination of the development of our relationship with Holy Spirit.  We start with orthodoxy, which informs our orthopathy, which then motivates our orthopraxy.  This development need not always be linear, but is often times, and is a helpful way to conceptualize our relationship with Holy Spirit.  Orthopraxy, as […]

Do I merit fleeing When you inherit leaving Want a warrant tears in torrent abhorrent horror hoarding my torture cherishing […]

Pneumatological Orthopathy

In a culture where subjectivity reigns supreme, the idea of orthopathy can be offensive and controversial.  To claim there are right feelings, emotions, or affections toward something or someone can feel paternalistic and is a large reason I have shied away from exploring orthopathy.  Despite these reservations, orthopathy is important.  This paper will be dedicated […]

Pneumatological Orthodoxy

The Bible does not contain systematic thinking on any one topic and is filled with conflicting experiences and understandings of some aspect or another of God.  This is epitomized with Holy Spirit.  In my life, I hardly encountered deep, sophisticated, and vulnerable conversation around Holy Spirit.  These two factors have made Holy Spirit an elusive, […]

On Our Own

Quickly, is your busy city tipsy from the whiskey of risking the needy for comfort’s needs? As we pick pixies to please our babies, gypsies pity the future we predict for siblings burdened by a suitor of shooters since infancy. Nipsey’s hustle humbles our trouble. We struggle to rumble the rubble of his castle as […]
