Chuck Colson’s Two Minute Warning: Courts and Culture

A Freudian worldview has transformed our culture by increasing the rate of abortion, out-of-wedlock birth, the spread of disease, and easy access to pornography. In addition to transforming our culture, this worldview has perverted the courts, which have been overrun with baseless Constitutional decrees for unrestricted sexual rights in the name of "privacy" and "freedom."

The Maternal Death Rate Myth

A history ignored: Lessons in how Obamacare may go wrong

Sixteen years ago, Tennessee launched TennCare—an ambitious Medicaid expansion offering coverage to more of those who couldn't afford insurance or had been denied coverage. "There was real optimism in Nashville," remembers B.W. Ruffner, a Chattanooga doctor, "that we were going to be able to cover more patients for less money." But TennCare's promise soon unraveled. In less than a decade, it almost bankrupted the state.

Chuck Colson’s Two Minute Warning: Why You Think the Way You Do

Christianity has been the most powerful force in shaping Western culture. When the Church is marginalized, we will see a decline in freedom, human rights, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The light of Christianity changes the hearts and minds of every culture it touches, because it is a radical belief that elevates the value of every human life. Read more about this topic in a book, written by history professor Dr. Glenn Sunshine, titled Why You Think the Way You Do.

A Postmodern Presidency

Given thirty years of postmodern relativism in our universities, we were bound to get a postmodern president at some point. Postmodernism is a fancy word — in terms of culture, nihilist; in terms of politics, an equality of result and the ends justifying the means — that a lot of people throw around to describe the present world of presumed wisdom that evolved in the last part of the 20th century.

The takers weigh down the makers

Here's a question of vastly more than theoretical importance to current and coming generations of Americans: How much longer can the U.S. economy continue to produce enough wealth to sustain a growing class of people who depend on government for some or all of their daily necessities? To pose the question another way: Are we nearing a point when there are no longer enough taxpayers to support all of the tax consumers in America?

Talking Points on Increased Government Control

In the last century, Friederich von Hayek argued that, as the State takes over more and more liberties and responsibilities from its citizens, the citizens, happy to have these “rights? preserved by the State, experience a change of character. They change from being responsible citizens to serfs, dependent on the State and content to remain that way. Is this where we’re headed in America? Some think so. You should be prepared to discuss this question with the people around you, since it’s going to be a current concern for some time. Here are some resources to guide you...

Jennifer Roback Morse: Are Both Genders Necessary in Parenting?

The claim that the gender of parents doesn’t matter is a crucial argument for same sex marriage advocates. Treating same sex unions like marriage amounts to saying that mothers and fathers are interchangeable. It is a coin toss from a child’s point of view, whether they have two moms, two dads, or one of each.

Chuck Colson’s Two Minute Warning: Political Derangement

Instead of giving us what is most vital and important to our daily lives, the media often focuses on centers of power in a way that more closely resembles a political circus than republican government. This polarizes society because one group always needs to be pitted against another to keep the circus entertaining. This lack of unity makes the country disillutioned and panicked. The Church is the only hope in America's recovery from this political illusion.

Breakpoint Commentary: Do Students Know What They Believe

The basic beliefs of young evangelicals are sound, but they are not applying them in a consistent way. This is why I believe we, the Church, must do a much better job of catechizing our young people and helping them develop a biblical worldview. We’ve got to give them a framework for understanding how absolute truth and the Gospel interact with all of life.

A Biblical Worldview: What It Is and What It’s Not

There has been a recent proliferation of camps, conferences, books, and organizations promoting the idea of Biblical worldview. But familiarity can breed contempt. 'Biblical worldview' is often thrown around today in a haphazard fashion, and it may no longer be clear what it actually means. Also, Biblical worldview may be in danger of dying the death of the 'been there, tried that, and we’ve moved on' mentality that is prevalent in so many contemporary program-driven churches and denominations. This would be tragic.

Chuck Colson’s Two Minute Warning: Dating Back to the Stone Age

In a post-sexual revolution culture dating is out the door and has been replaced with 'hooking up.' Rather than applying sex and sexuality in the way God has ordained--the institution of marriage--many women are attempting to liberate themselves from the sexual rules they feel once enslaved them. What remains perplexing, is that their view of freedom is enslaving them to predatory men who take what they want without committing to them or giving them true love, which is what they really crave.

Care for the Poor: The Privilege of Churches

On his return to Geneva in September 1541, John Calvin, aided by a committee of pastors and city councilors, raced against time to produce his “Draft Ecclesiastical Ordinances.? It was a momentous moment for Geneva: on November 20, 1541, they became law, revolutionizing the city’s social welfare and modeling it along biblical lines.

U.S. Government To Save Billions By Cutting Wasteful Senator Program

WASHINGTON—In an effort to reduce wasteful spending and eliminate non-vital federal services, the U.S. government announced plans this week to cut its long-standing senator program, a move it says will help save more than $300 billion each year. According to officials, the decision to cut the national legislative body was reached during a budget review meeting on Tuesday. After hours of deliberation, it was agreed that the cost of financing U.S. senators far outweighed the benefits they provided.
