I believe in pastors of local churches. I'd like to share four reasons why I believe in pastors. Pastors of local churches are not any more perfect than anyone else. Yet, they are called of God to lead the church.
One of the cruelest things we can do during a time of great human suffering is to suggest that those who are the most severely afflicted must be worse than everyone else. "Those wicked sinners got what they deserve in that hurricane," we say glibly, little knowing that we condemn ourselves in the process.
Is your church too busy? Are many of your members overcommitted? If so, don't even think about adding a ministry, event, activity, or program without taking at least one away.
Some will immediately protest that Christians are not on the sidelines, but loudly engaged in cultural debates in ways that certainly don't honor the Christ whose name they bear. That drives other Christians away from engagement because they don't want to be associated with a presentation of the Truth that is ugly and mean. Then there is the sideline crowd.
I love to share about Jesus — but that is a new thing for me. Years ago I would never open my mouth, or ever attempt to share Jesus. I do not have a good reason why, I just never saw the need.
The world needs hope. Which is why I'm glad WORLD Magazine has announced the winner of its Hope Awards!
Just when you think you've heard it all, a pastor calls your radio show asking how to respond to a congregant who claims that cannabis was sanctioned by God in the Torah. That's right, sanctioned by the Lord Himself, not to be smoked but to be burned in large quantities by the priests of Israel. Far out!
"Mother!" is nothing short of a horrifying mockery of women, marriage and motherhood. That is no great surprise amidst the current trend of cultural matricide in America.
Every great revival has both sizzle and steak. The sizzle is the rally point for the revival, the shock and awe of an event or a moment that captures attention, imaginations and hearts. But sizzle without steak is just a mouth-watering sound that disappoints.
Dealing with a hurricane is bad enough, but add on top of it the promotion of the myth that it's all because of man-made climate change — that makes it worse.
This Equifax security breach has me really concerned. What does it mean if I am among the millions who had their information stolen?
I can't remember a time when our country, our communities, and even our families have been so ideologically divided. Not only do we disagree but we tend to see others not only as wrong, but as our enemies.
On this International Day of Peace it's important that we pause to celebrate where significant progress has been made in peacebuilding efforts around the world.
Yes, it would be wonderful if Jesus returned for His people this week, but it's not going to happen. Count on it. The Second Coming will not take place this year on September 23.
Since the left and complicit journalists in the mainstream media cannot defeat President Donald Trump on the issues or legitimate grounds such as dishonesty, they have resorted to a superficial collection of tactics.
Abortion devotees have always had an iffy connection with reality, but whatever tie was between the two seems to be down to its last thread, a fact that made painfully obvious in a recent article, where a trio of abortion profiteers lodged the absurd declaration that abortion and childbirth really aren't so different after all.
These days, colleges expect their students to drink like fish and hook up frequently. And they're just trying to keep a lid on it. Sort of.
Some Christian parents have their babies baptized, while others have them dedicated. Some parents have their preteen children baptized upon their profession of faith in Christ, while other parents encourage their children to hold off on baptism until later in their teen years.
While I understand and respect the importance of borders and security, those protected by this policy are worthy of our compassion and concern. This is not a question of border security — these individuals have already been in the country for many years, some for decades.
We consider modern-day slavery a "good" vs. "bad" problem that can be solved with more police raids and criminal prosecutions. Yet, when we look at the underlying issues, it's rarely that straightforward. There are forms of cultural slavery, so ingrained in a society, they're considered normal and acceptable.
President Trump's first speech before the U.N. was vintage Trump, for better or for worse. One line in particular epitomized why some people love him and others loathe him: "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself." Accordingly, his speech drew enthusiastic praise as well as breathless condemnation.
Much has been said, and written, about Senator Dianne Feinstein's prejudicial questioning of Notre Dame Professor Amy Coney Barrett in her nomination hearing for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

With so much devastation in the news, it's hard not to ask God, "Why?" Here's some help for responding to questions about natural disasters and God.
Linking the "Unsealed" film with all evangelical Christians is unfair. When we wake up Sunday to find the video's prophecy unfulfilled, even more people are likely to mock our faith. But such is the culture we inhabit.
There are Evangelicals and Catholics who critique yoga as wrong for Christians because its mantras originate in eastern religion. Setting aside that concern, should worship space be open to recreation and "profane" (i.e., secular) activities like yoga?
While it seems insensitive to ask this while we grieve, people are wondering why didn't God heal Nabeel. After all, he was a brilliant and charismatic young man taken away from his wife Michelle and daughter Ayah, and the rest of us, far too early. Nabeel had so much more to give to his family and the Kingdom of God that his death seems completely senseless.
