Shaking the Dust Off Your Feet

In Christian RealTalk by Antwuan Malone

I thought about this passage today found in Matthew 10 and in Luke 9. It reads like this. He told them: “Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off …

Bill Nye, Ken Ham and the Creation and Evolution Debate

In Candid Christianity: The Blog, Christian RealTalk, Tough Questions by Antwuan Malone

Last night, around 11 pm, I finally decided to invest two and a half hours of my time listening to two very intelligent people verbally spar about the beginning of all things. I was hoping for something new, something inspiring (from a Christian point of view). But in the end, I must admit, I felt disappointed with Ken Ham’s core …

How To Make Miracles Happen

In Christian RealTalk by Antwuan Malone

Trafficking: So You’re Aware, Now What?

In Christian RealTalk by Antwuan Malone

Awareness is fine and dandy, but what’s after that? Trafficking has become one of the hottest causes in America. And with this month being Human Trafficking Awareness Month, I’m sure you’re going to see lots of statistics and other information about how big a problem trafficking is in America. I love that the cover is being pulled back on this …

The Jesus Feminist And The Church

In Christian RealTalk by Antwuan Malone

Movements are exciting. And a bit scary. What’s scarier is this, another venture into the often heated conversation of women in ministry… or more recently called, (a Christian) Jesus Feminism. I’ve written a couple times on the subject already (a basic look, a studious look, and a warning for a movement), but I can’t help but notice all the energy …

Leadership: Empowerment vs. Excellence

In Christian RealTalk, Leadership by Antwuan Malone

We’ve all had this happen. Our child presents us a drawing they’ve been toiling over for half an hour with a chest full of pride and beaming smile. We grab the sheet of paper from their outstretched hands, and proceed to examine something that looks like nothing we’ve ever seen. And the game begins. Is it a primitive beast, a …

Paul’s Teaching on Women: Cultural or Transcultural

In Christian RealTalk, Scripture by Antwuan Malone

When it comes to the roles of women in ministry, there are two main views. The complementarian suggests the roles of men and women in life, marriage and worship are distinct in nature, yet complementary to each other. This view commonly rejects women ministry leadership in the church. The egalitarian viewpoint suggests the roles of men and women are indistinct …

Don Jon, Masturbation, and the Real American Idol

In Christian RealTalk, Tough Questions by Antwuan Malone

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but from what I’ve read, Don Jon seems to be a parable about the destructive nature of masturbation, and the male fascination with the female form. I think that’s interesting. Mostly because Don Jon is a secular film, rated R (for super strong sexual content, nudity, and massive profanity) and by all intents and purposes off the …
