ESPN Contributor Chris Broussard gave a perfect example of what it means to be tolerant. The left in response to his comments on homosexuality did not.
The great question in churches today should be, “When are we going to wake up?” Christianity is persecuted around the world and illegal in many countries. In America we are also losing our right to practice our religion unimpeded, but we continue to sit in our comfortable pews on the day of worship and adapt [...]
Trevin Wax had this quote from C.S. Lewis on his blog. I like this quote event though I have some reservations about its application in today’s culture. Christianity is not a patent medicine. Christianity claims to give an account of facts – to tell you what the real universe is like. Its account of the [...]
I need to start out with a bit of a disclaimer: I did not watch a single minute of the RNC. If that disqualifies me from commenting on the following video, then so be it. No, I am not a Democrat; I’m a registered Republican. However much there may be that I stand opposed to [...]
The past week Indiana Congressman Andre’ Carson, a Muslim Democrat, made the statement to the effect that American Schools needed to be like the Madrasah schools of the Islamic world with the idea that schools patterned after these Koran centered schools would further advance the West. Oh really? Having taken a number of history classes [...]
I’m not a political animal at all. It’s not that politics and politicians don’t interest me; they do. It’s that they usually frustrate and disgust me so much that I find myself needing to have some type of a ritual cleansing after having been around them (both “politics” and “politicians”). However, there are times when [...]
This is a book review I find myself not wanting to write. It’s not because I disliked the book or found it harmful or flat out “wrong.” No, it’s because I found the book to not be what I expected. It’s also a college-level book, perhaps an advanced college-level sociology book and this is what [...]
A controversy recently stirred up in Iowa got me thinking about a workshop I led for the Ignite Youth Leadership Conference in Des Moines, IA back in 2009 – Loving Homosexuals: Truth & Tolerance. I was put in a small room as I think the organizers thought it wasn’t going to be well attended, but [...]
Mike Demastus’ decision to preach on homosexuality and promote it on his church’s marquee sign opened up a torrent of hostility and a planned protest.
I appreciate Greg Stier and his ministry Dare 2 Share. They have a new website – Gospel Journey and with it a new video. “Life in 6 Words: The GOSPEL.” Watch below: The six words – God. Our. Sins. Paying. Everyone. Life. They’ve boiled this presentation down. The Gospel acronym used to go: God created [...]
In honor of National Mentoring Month (which ends tomorrow) I wanted to share an article I wrote forReal Men back in October. My friends at Fuller Youth Institute have been researching what makes faith stick as youth transition to adulthood. The study they did with 500 youth group graduates revealed three surprising and key findings. [...]
Lots of folks believe in prayer. Generic religionists, agnostics in need, and even atheists with an open mind about the mystical powers within us, talk about the “power of prayer”. There are even studies objectivelyanalyzing the power of prayer. I have news. Prayer has no power. Prayer will neither heal nor help. It will neither change the weather nor [...]
An animated conversation ensued around the lunch table, as Sarah Palin, her leadership and potential as a Presidential candidate was heatedly discussed. The women, all home schooling moms and conservative Christians from various backgrounds, passionately voiced opinions that ranged from a high level of respect for Governor Palin, to a concern for her family, if [...]
Timothy Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, wrote in the introduction of his book, The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism: The only way to doubt Christianity rightly and fairly is to discern the alternate belief under each of your doubts and then ask yourself what reasons you have for [...]
