Wilberforce: ‘Take Those Handkerchiefs Away’

Wilberforce: ‘Take Those Handkerchiefs Away’

The most recent two undercover videos in the Center for Medical Progress' investigation of Planned Parenthood taken America around a corner. Naiveté is no longer an excuse. We can no longer say “we didn’t know.” We know virtually everything now, right down to the “crunchy,” illegal details. And with knowledge comes responsibility.

Christianity in Post-Christian America

Christianity in Post-Christian America

Many writers have compared the position of the American church in 2015 with the position of the Israelites during the Babylonian captivity. Whether entirely accurate or not, the comparison highlights an important reality: The loss of political and cultural power is by no means the end of the American church's mission.

Your Sin Will Find You Out

Your Sin Will Find You Out

Hidden sins tend to eventually become public knowledge, and when they do, the revelation can be life-altering. This was illustrated with startling clarity when a hackers’ network released the confidential data from the Internet's best-known affair-hosting website. The aftermath of the world's biggest adultery scandal is a reminder that safely secret sins are never truly safe or secret.

What is Right with America?

What is Right with America?

Winston Churchill defined “right” this way: The “common conception of what is right and decent is a marked regard for fair play, especially to the weak and the poor, a stern sentiment of impartial justice, and a love of personal freedom.” In this adapted lecture, Dr. David Noebel shares five things that America has gotten right and why they give…

Poverty in Decline

Poverty in Decline

Jesus told his disciples that the poor would always be with them (Matthew 26:11). While that is true, current trends indicate that the poor — or at the least the poorest of the poor — are becoming more rare, thanks for new technology and economic growth worldwide.

The Golden Rule Applies to Twitter, Too

The Golden Rule Applies to Twitter, Too

What makes ordinary people turn vicious when they sit behind a keyboard? In 2015, a momentary lapse in judgment can follow you for the rest of your life, keeping you from finding peace, work, or even love. And it’s all thanks to social media and how it transforms ordinary people into members of a mob.

The Bible on YouTube

The Bible on YouTube

Scriptural illiteracy is one of the biggest problems in American churches right now. Not long ago, pastors, novelists, journalists, and even politicians could take public biblical knowledge for granted, but now, even Christians today struggle to describe the major themes of the Old and New Testament — let alone what individual books of the Bible teach. One pastor & his…

Science and the Hard Questions

Science and the Hard Questions

Human behaviors, the interplay of organisms in the natural world, and even the workings of the cosmos are all attributed to the caprices of colliding atoms or just-so stories about what might have helped our distant ancestors escape predators. And questions typically asked and answered by philosophers — questions like “What is the meaning of life?” and “What are good…

Dropping the Bomb: Was America Wrong?

Dropping the Bomb: Was America Wrong?

This week marked the 70th anniversary of what many view as the decisive moment of the Pacific Theater of World War II — the United States’ decision to drop atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The first and (so far) only use of nuclear weapons in war left a quarter million Japanese — mostly civilians —…

Dating Apps Are Swiping Love From a Generation

Dating Apps Are Swiping Love From a Generation

Today’s dating scene may not be a pretty picture, in fact, its not much more than pixels. For an increasing number, dating and even romance itself seem passe. High-achieving millennials don’t have time for formalities, so they get straight to the point: sex. The Christian Church must offer them what neither the hookup culture nor their phones can: true love.

The Evangelical Debate Over Adam

The Evangelical Debate Over Adam

The debate over whether to take the Bible’s earliest accounts as history is one of the most basic questions pastors who teach the Bible are asked to answer. Secular science gives answers to many questions that are fundamentally at odds with historic Christianity. But as the scientific debate over the genetic origins continues, being a thoughtful Christian requires more than…

A Restraining Order on the Truth

A Restraining Order on the Truth

Upon the request of the National Abortion Federation, federal judge William Orrick issued a restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress, the organization behind the recent Planned Parenthood undercover videos. This action shows that abortion supporters are running out of options. The truth is coming to light, and those who despise it are fleeing. We must remain bold as…

Africa Rejects Pro-Gay Imperialism

Africa Rejects Pro-Gay Imperialism

President Obama’s recent visit to Kenya showed just how sharp the divide is between Western values and the daily needs of other countries. It’s time to pray for our nation, not only that God would turn the hearts of our leaders back to the truth, but that he would embolden those on both sides of the Atlantic who don’t buy…

Jewish Philanthropist Pays a Debt to Christianity

Jewish Philanthropist Pays a Debt to Christianity

Christians throughout allied Europe helped Jewish families, especially children, escape the grip of the Nazi party. One such refugee, Lord Weidenfeld, fled occupied Austria in 1938 with help from Christian brothers. Now 95, he says he feels a debt of gratitude to Christians everywhere, and is in turn helping middle eastern Christians escape from suffering and persecution.
