Marriage at Historic Low: Why the Crawl to the Altar?

Marriage at Historic Low: Why the Crawl to the Altar?

The Bible treats marriage with deep reverence, calling it “very good” (Genesis 1:31), referring to a wife as a mark of God's favor (Proverbs 18:22). But openly celebrating young couples who decide to live according to God's design, and encouraging other couples to do the same is only just the start. Marriage is anything but outdated. It's the lynchpin of…

A Stark Reminder: Game of Thrones’ Real Effect

A Stark Reminder: Game of Thrones’ Real Effect

Typically, non-Christian audiences imbibe television without protest. But last week, even seared consciences were pricked by a popular cable show's latest exploration of depravity. And it's a wake-up call for Christian audiences who've stuck with this and other programs longer than they should. Should shows like Game of Thrones be taken as just fiction? Or seen as a true threat…

Color Vision Offers Insights on Design

Color Vision Offers Insights on Design

The brilliant hues that surround us may not even exist — at least not materially speaking. Instead, they may be the language our brains use to express the inexpressible. It's a process that defies replication and attests how “fearfully and wonderfully made” we really are.

The Pro-Life Movement is Growing Up

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, passed overwhelmingly last week by a Republican-controlled House, aims to outlaw abortions nationally beyond 20 weeks of gestation — the point at which supporters and many scientists say the unborn can experience pain.

America’s Remnant: Mighty or Minority?

America’s Remnant: Mighty or Minority?

In a culture where loud minorities often win the most media coverage, it's easy to forget about God's quiet, faithful remnants. How should Christians respond to the recent Pew Research Center study that states looks at America's changing religious landscape?

Prioritizing Poverty

Prioritizing Poverty

Are Christians in America obsessed with homosexuality and abortion? Are we so focused on these issues that we've neglected to care for the poor? That's a charge many to the left of the political aisle have been leveling lately — and given Christ's repeated directives that His followers give extravagantly to the needy, it's one we can't take lightly. But…

Responding to Bruce Jenner: Truth or Love?

Responding to Bruce Jenner: Truth or Love?

When 65-year-old gold-winning Olympian and Actor Bruce Jenner announced his plan to “transition” to a woman, he brought the transgender discussion to Americans' attention like never before. So when it comes to the question plaguing the Church—the debate between speaking truth and showing love—it's time we respectfully point out that unlike biological sex and gender, this isn't an “either-or.”

Reconnecting Boys With Reality

Reconnecting Boys With Reality

Obsessive video-game playing, pornography use, and over-consumption of TV are lies that are severing young men's grasp on reality. Christian parents, educators, and pastors shouldn't be afraid to confront young men, reminding them of the truth when it comes to sex, school, and their social lives. Reconnecting boys with reality, ultimately, means reconnecting them with the truth.

Conceiving, Commodifying, Killing: The Controversy Behind IVF

The Bible is filled with accounts of couples, whether Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Rachel, Elkanah and Hannah, or Zechariah and Elizabeth, who spent years praying for the blessing of conception without receiving it. In the end, Christians should think long and hard, pray, and seek counsel before resorting to modern science’s power to conceive life outside the womb. It's…

Baltimore’s Guardian Angels: The Christian Response

Baltimore’s Guardian Angels: The Christian Response

What happened in Baltimore brought out the worst in many Americans. But it also brought out the best in some, especially Christian leaders in and around the riot-battered city. If, like them, we bear the name of Christ, we must distinguish ourselves as the peacemakers in our own neighborhoods and cities (Matthew 5:9), showing a watching world, and the occasional…
