Chelsea and I conclude our series about Pride Month.

Ricci Tres is a 29-year-old combat veteran and father of three children who recently decided to try to be a woman. Tres was rejected from the women's Olympic skateboarding because he has too much testosterone. He later won a NYC skateboarding competition and put a 13-year-old girl in second place. Tres admits he could "never be a woman" but wishes he were born that way...

We take a break from what we said we were going to address this week to talk about the Supreme Court ruling for Dobbs v. Jackson on Friday, June 24, 2022. On this historic day Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey were explicitly overturned.

We talk about the Constitutional arguments laid out in the decision and the problems with the dissenting opinion.

The decision simply relegated the authority to legislate abortion back to t...

Chelsea and I continue our coverage of events and thoughts about Pride Month.

Some protesters disrupted a "Drag Queen Story Hour" at a library in San Lorenzo, California. Most media articles side with the drag queen and demonize the protesters. They mostly asked parents why they brought their kids specifically to this event. The parents didn't give a cogent answer.

Apparently, these protesters are possibly guilty of a ...

Note: This episode contains subject matter that may not be suitable for young children. We made our best effort to keep the information non-descriptive.

"Pride Month" has become a sacred cow of secular religion. Children are increasingly targeted for grooming.

The recent "Drag the Kids to Pride" event in Dallas, Texas demonstrated this as parents forced their young children to watch "drag queens" dance for mon...

Chelsea and I continue and conclude our discussion of the tragic mass school shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

As politicians clamor for more gun control, we look at Salvador Ramos' family situation.

Were warning signs ignored that led to this attack?

Could Ramos' poor family situation have been at the root of his problems?

We believe the evidence shows that Biblical parenthood is the true solution for pr...

The mass school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas has gripped us all. We mourn with those who lost family and friends. Even those who managed to escape with their lives will be scarred by the evil.

Chelsea and I present the timeline of the tragedy. We do our best to evaluate the reported police response with fairness as information is still coming out. Of note, especially, is the mom who ran in and brought her two ...

Chelsea and I talk about the aftermath of the Supreme Court leak of the draft of the ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson case that court overturn Roe v. Wade.

Senate Democrats tried to ram through a radical abortion law that lost 49-51.

Churches experienced raucous protests on Mother's Day.

The Wisconsin Family Action office was vandalized and received terrifying voice messages.

Supreme Court justices endured unlawful protests at their ...

We look at some salient points from the leaked draft opinion in the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women's Health Organization case.

The draft argues that the decisions of Roe vs. Wade and Planned Parenthood vs. Casey "must be overruled." Many pro-abortion activists are crying foul that this is judicial activism and an attack on a "fundamental right" to an abortion.

When we see the arguments and the rules in both Roe and Casey...

Chelsea and I finish our series on the Passion Week with the most important event in history: the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

From the burial to the high Sabbath to Sunday morning, we look at the the people involved and how they discovered that Jesus Christ was alive again.

Join us as we feel Mary Magdalene's sorrow and witness how her experience determined the rest of history.

Conley Owens is a husband and father of eight children. He is a pastor at Silicon Valley Reformed Baptist Church. He also has a full time job as a software engineer at Google.

But Conley is more than just a modern day Batman. He has thought deeply about how modern Christianity has commercialized ministry contrary to the examples and teachings in the Bible.

Conley's book The Dorean Principle is an eye-opening look at how Christian...

Chelsea and I break down the timeline of the crucifixion according to the gospel accounts.

The agony of this brutal form of execution helps us to see what Jesus was willing to anticipate and endure.

Yet, what makes this spectacle even more amazing are the prophecies Jesus and others involved in this event fulfill.

Prepare to cherish Christ dearly through this deep and captivating look at the day of atonement!

Chelsea and I continue our series on the Passion Week and note the worldly politics that led to Jesus' atonement.

We cover Jesus' betrayal and arrest, His six trials, Peter's denials, the release of Barabbas, and Jesus' final sentence.

We ponder the question "Who put Jesus on the cross?"

In this episode of Truthspresso Express I analyze more arguments for the Roman Catholic dogma of transubstantiation while driving to work in the morning and from work in the evening.

How does Jesus going away and returning to earth conflict with the claims of Transubstantiation? What about the role of the Holy Spirit as "another Comforter" in Jesus' bodily absence?

Can Transubstantiation confuse the human and divine attri...

Chelsea and I continue our series of episodes on the Easter season. We talk about the busy week of Jesus from His triumphal entry to His trials.

One thing that characterized most of the entanglements He faced: politics, politics, politics!

We observe how nothing has changed about human politics, and how politics leads people to shirk truth and deny their own eyes and hearts. Jesus gave us an example of how to fight politics with cold...

In this episode of Truthspresso Express I analyze arguments for the Roman Catholic dogma of transubstantiation while driving to work in the morning and from work in the evening.

Does John 6 teach the we must literally eat Christ's flesh and drink His blood?

Is a metaphor a "literal" understanding of "This is My body"?

This episode is inspired by the recent episode of Theology Throw Down in the Christian Podcast Com...

Chelsea and I begin with by talking about our crazy day (Saturday). Our water heater broke and was leaking while Chelsea was engaged in an unexpected spiritual battle. We mentioned the End Abortion Now event at the Colorado capital. We planned to go to it but the water heater issue kept us home.

Then, we talked about the events surrounding the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. We discussed the significance of the donkey, the ...

In this episode of Truthspresso Express I talk about the now infamous incident from the Oscars on Sunday when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock.

Just some casual thoughts about why I don't think it was staged and where I pick sides (or not).

HB 22-1279, also known as the "Reproductive Health Equity Act" went through the Colorado Senate floor this last week. This bill is designed to legalize all abortions anytime anywhere for any reason up until birth and possibly afterwards.

The language of this evil bill is intentionally broad and ambiguous. Senate Republicans offered a plethora of amendments to limit the bill or clarify the language. Democrats wouldn't bud...

Colorado Democrats are afraid of Roe vs. Wade being overturned this year. So afraid, in fact, that they are trying to ram through a radically evil abortion bill!

HB 22-1279, also known as the "Reproductive Health Equity Act" would enshrine into statute abortion on demand for any reason with no restrictions using any means up until birth (and quite possibly beyond). It is unclear even from the legislators whether a human has ...

Since I am starting to recover from a cold and voice is not at the moment all it's cracked up to be (it mostly just cracks), I got permission from Andrew Rappaport to re-air an episode of the Rapp Report from July 4, 2021 entitled "National Strategy for Counter Terrorism Against Christians."

It's certainly eye-opening for those of us expecting to live in "the land of the free," but, as Christians, we already ...
