This week’s episode of The Point by John Stonestreet shows the history of one of the most common pro-abortion arguments. Stonestreet cites Robert George, who reports that dehumanizing language, as seen in the words of abortion advocates, was a strategic maneuver used by other genocidal people, like the Nazis, to justify killing their subjects. It’s chilling to hear such similar rhetoric today from such a large number of people. The other slogan in the image, “My… Read More →“My Body, My Choice”

But why would he do this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM-DoO84Sf4 Thanos destroyed half… Read More →The Ethics of Avengers: Infinity War

LifeWay did a study years ago showing that 70 percent of 23- to 30-year-olds drop out of church, and only about 35 percent return later to attend regularly. Sometimes we call this a problem with discipleship, evangelism, or faith formation, but we rarely call it what I think it is: the consequence of bad ideas.

Where does morality come from? Can we explain morality apart from God? Those are two of the questions Dr. Frank Beckwith tackles in this lecture, as he explains the arguments for the moral law and responds to those who claim that morality could result from evolution or arbitrarily exist.
