Breaking the Spiral

Breaking the Spiral

There is something you can do. From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point. This weekend is the 2012 Wilberforce Weekend in Lansdowne, VA. The speaking lineup is as good as it gets for those interested in defending life, promoting marriage, and preserving religious liberty. But I’m worried. I’m worried because it’s easier to read…

The Real Christians in Texas

The Real Christians in Texas

Here’s how to flabbergast an atheist. From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point. I’ve resisted commenting on the new ABC series GCB because, frankly, I didn’t want to dignify it with a comment. If you don’t know what GCB stands for, suffice it to say that the show is based on a book written…

A Whole Mess of Ethical Issues


The can of worms is open, and now they’re everywhere. From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point. So, is a baby conceived after a parent’s death still considered that parent’s child? 20 years ago, this question would be ridiculous. Last Monday, it was debated in the Supreme Court. Through in vitro fertilization, Karen Coapto…

The Class Act Continues


My guess is, his impact just deepened. From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point. I’m a Colorado transplant -- not a native -- so I don’t really share the religion of all-things Broncos like the rest of this state does. Still, it’s been great having Tim Tebow here and joining the ride of numerous…

The Hunger Games


Should kids read the Hunger Games? From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point. I get questions like this all the time, only the object changes. Should my kids read Harry Potter? Or Watch Twilight? Or play Halo 3? It’s the perennial challenge of parenting in the 21st century in a culture shaped by media.…

The Collision of Faith and Culture


Sometimes faith and culture collide. From the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Some Christians are looking for a fight. Always on a heresy hunt and never acknowledging anything good happening in the world, they’re constantly offended by the world and railing loudly about it. Other Christians are so ashamed of their activist brothers…

Wrongful Birth? That’s Just Wrong.

Wrongful Birth? That’s Just Wrong.

They wish she’d never been born. From the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. What do you do when you order something from a store and when it comes, it’s all wrong? You demand your money back, of course. What do you do if you get a baby and it’s all wrong? Well, the Levy family of Portland, Oregon demanded their money back too. And a jury agreed, awarding the couple $2.9 million dollars for the “wrongful birth? of their daughter.

Experimenting on Children, part 2


We’re more than what we feel. From the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Yesterday I talked about the disturbing growth of gender identity clinics that re-assign gender to children and pre-teens. It’s a huge cultural shift when barriers are lifted not only on sexual behavior, but sexual identity. And bringing children into such…

Experimenting on Children


Our children are paying for our social experiments. From the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. The cultural debate on sexuality is nearly four decades old now, and has only intensified to the point that so called “sexual freedom? now includes not only behavior, but sexual identity itself. But as we continue to pretend there are no consequences to our choices, we should keep our children out of it.

Cohabitation is NOT Marriage

Cohabitation is NOT Marriage

I’ve got good news and bad news. I’m John Stonestreet, and this is The Point. The good news is the divorce rate has dropped in America. The bad news is, it’s because fewer people are getting married. Instead they’re opting for what they think is an alternative: cohabitation. As marriage rate has been declining gradually over the last couple decades,…

Reason Rally, Really?

Reason Rally, Really?

What’s a Reason Rally? Good question. I’m John Stonestreet and this is the Point. Richard Dawkins is hosting a “Reason Rally? on the National Mall on March 24. It’s supposed to be “the largest gathering of the secular movement in world history.? As author of the best-seller The God Delusion, and the most well-known atheist in the world, Dawkins is the natural choice to headline it.

Kirk Cameron and Tolerance

Kirk Cameron and Tolerance

Uh oh… they’re being tolerant again. I’m John Stonestreet, and this is The Point. Kirk Cameron was once the most lovable kid in America, the teen heartthrob on the sitcom Growing Pains. Now, he’s has been called an “accomplice to murder? by Rosie O’Donnell. What did he do? He stated his convictions about homosexual behavior and same-sex marriage in an interview with Pierce Morgan on CNN a few days ago.

Post-Birth Abortion

Post-Birth Abortion

We’ve predicted this, but I hoped we were wrong. I’m John Stonestreet, and this is The Point. For years, pro-life apologists who defend the value of human life from conception to death, have pointed out an inconsistency. What’s the difference, we’ve asked, between a child before birth and after birth other than size and location? It’s the same DNA, same…

Divorce Was Never An Option

Divorce Was Never An Option

The oldest married couple in the world has some advice. I’m John Stonestreet, and this is The Point. It’s been almost 86 years since Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher walked down the isle, and they say they’d do it again too.
