Transgender Tragedies: Affirming Disorders Isn’t Loving

Transgender Tragedies: Affirming Disorders Isn’t Loving

The transgender social campaign is picking up steam. Draped in the language of civil rights and diversity, this movement demands that we discard the concept of determined sex altogether.

Pills and Promotions: Our Addiction to Productivity Is Killing Us

Pills and Promotions: Our Addiction to Productivity Is Killing Us

Creating a workforce that's built on artificial productivity where young professionals feel they must destroy themselves to get ahead is detrimental. We pervert the gift of work into a curse when we try to push ourselves past the natural limits our bodies set for us. If we don't respect these limits, we risk losing more than a promotion at the…

Intelligence Doesn’t Guarantee Fulfillment

Intelligence Doesn’t Guarantee Fulfillment

IQ (“Intelligence Quotient”) has long been the standard measure of intelligence. But intelligence doesn't equate wisdom. Those who possess wisdom not only lead happier lives, but understand how to use other gifts like a high IQ. And that's an ability science will never be able to fully quantify.

Skype Crosses Translation Barriers

Skype Crosses Translation Barriers

Google's and Microsoft's new technologies may help missionaries and pastors more than any other group, bridging language gaps and allowing the message that first transcended the boundaries of tongue and tribe to spread with even greater speed. In any language, that's good news.

Passing on Truth

Passing on Truth

The future of our moral witness could depend on how well we coach tomorrow's evangelical leaders and laypeople to defend their beliefs. But if we hope to avoid the fate of mainline denominations, resisting the temptation to be “relevant” isn't enough. We must also resist the urge to be silent.

The Ugly Side of Beauty

The Ugly Side of Beauty

How we look can steadily influence our trajectories toward success or failure. But new research shows being easy on the eyes may not make life itself as easy as social scientists once thought. As Christians, we should strive to see those around us with God's eyes, discerning their inward beauty or ugliness and looking past the wrapping.

Taking Narcissism to New Lengths

Taking Narcissism to New Lengths

Where are Christians to draw the line between connectedness and conceit. Gadgets can do more than keep us preoccupied on the subway. Smart technology has the ability to focus our attention impacting other people who reflect the image of their Creator who, unlike us, deserves worship.

The Bible Back on Television

The Bible Back on Television

The use of stories to convey truth goes all the way back to the founder of our faith, who told parables to baffle those without “ears to hear” and enlighten those who would listen. A.D., along with other Bible-themed entertainment to hit screens over the past year, gives us a distinct chance not only to explain our faith to eager…

When Discrimination Is Love: Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

When Discrimination Is Love: Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

Last week, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a bill designed to protect the religious freedom of business owners. Discrimination based on hatred has no place in Christianity or a just society. But our laws must permit discrimination between right and wrong, help and harm, natural and unnatural. That kind of discrimination is the form of love a neighbor takes when…
