Alright, One More

Alright, One More

China’s widely criticized one-child policy, which recently saw its 34th anniversary, may soon undergo historic revisions. But the news isn’t all good. Yet, it inflicts many of the same social and moral evils on the people of China, and ultimately misses the point: The Chinese people deserve freedom to determine the size of their own families, and Chinese culture and…

Not So “Pro-Choice”

Not So “Pro-Choice”

California may have just become the first state in the nation to mandate churches fund abortion, dismantling the last vestiges of a right to conscientious objection on the issue. In a letter sent to private health care insurers several weeks ago, the California Department of Managed Healthcare (DMHC) announced its new requirement that nearly all insurance plans cover elective abortions.

The State of Our Marriages

The State of Our Marriages

It’s no secret that marriage in America is floundering. Whether it’s divorce, cohabitation, or unfaithfulness, corrosive influences throughout the culture are leaving fewer intact, healthy marriages all the time.

A Message to the Mayor

A Message to the Mayor

As just the latest in a parade of demands by political officials and courts that Christians set aside their deeply-held beliefs, the skirmish in Houston of the Mayor's threat to subpoena pastors if they fail to turn over their sermons takes on great significance. The legal heat is on, whether it’s judges ordering Christian business owners to celebrate same-sex weddings,…

Puritanical Feminism

Puritanical Feminism

Has the sexual revolution come full circle? That’s been the subject of several editorials in conservative publications of late, whose authors observe a marked shift in progressive rhetoric about the hookup scene, particularly on college campuses.

One-Way Diversity

One-Way Diversity

New cases of “gay rights” activists forcing Christians to celebrate and accept the homosexual lifestyle add to a growing list of examples proving that the LGBT movement isn’t content to “live and let live.” WORLD News reports that the California State University system has officially “de-recognized” all student groups refusing to comply with the so-called “all-comers policy,” which makes those…

High-Tech Atrophy

High-Tech Atrophy

Writing in The Atlantic, Nick Romeo asks, “Is Google making students stupid?” Using modern devices and software as replacements for the most valuable and timeless skills in life is ultimately a form of sloth, one of the traditional “deadly sins.” Most people today call it laziness, and Scripture takes a clear stance on it.

Not Healthy, Not Normal

Not Healthy, Not Normal

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has harsh words after a hacker stole and distributed nude photos of her. But she also expressed acceptance toward online pornography. High-profile efforts to nudge pornography into mainstream culture show just how many Americans have accepted it as normal and healthy. But research doesn’t agree. Instead, it exposes pornography as a social cancer, eating away at relationships,…

10 Steps to Study the Bible

10 Steps to Study the Bible

The Bible calls for careful examination because it is revelation from God. “Revelation” means to make known something that was previously unknown. The Hebrew word (galah) and the Greek word (apokalupto) “express the idea of uncovering what was concealed.” Yet, how can we best study and understand God's relegation in Scripture? Take these 10 steps to reading and understanding the…

Pedophilia: Crime, Disorder, or Orientation?

Pedophilia: Crime, Disorder, or Orientation?

A spate of articles proposing we rethink our view on pedophilia offers insight into how our culture has become accustomed to dealing with sexual deviance. This issue presents unique challenges to Christians because it forces us to hold several scriptural imperatives in harmony. We must recognize in our culture the degradation Paul described in Romans 1.

Crime or Compassion?

Crime or Compassion?

In recent years, “the right to die” has become the rallying cry for a movement convinced that human decency sometimes demands we help those in unbearable suffering to end their lives. Of course, suicide — even with assistance — is nothing new. But the idea that physicians, those under an ancient oath to “first do no harm,” should oversee and…

We Can’t Just Watch

We Can’t Just Watch

Since its offensive began earlier this year, the radical militant group called the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) has killed nearly six thousand Iraqi civilians. Though videos of ISIS members beheading journalists have captured most Americans’ attention, the real devastation in the fledgling democracy has gone unheeded for the better part of a year. Now Islamic militants are…

Peter Enns’ ‘Messy,’ ‘Weird’ Bible

Peter Enns’ ‘Messy,’ ‘Weird’ Bible

Christians — particularly of the theologically conservative variety — have been reading the Bible wrong for generations. At least that’s what disaffected evangelical and one-time professor at Westminster Theological Seminary Peter Enns thinks, and he’s written a book to flesh out his argument, and it is making quite a splash in both the evangelical and secular progressive worlds. Read how…
