Wycliffe Bible Translators President on Inspiring New Generation to End 'Bible Poverty' by Translating Last 1,870 Languages

Creson

The president of the world's largest Scripture translation organization, Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, hopes that his new book, released earlier this month, will inspire more people to help finish the remaining translations of the Gospel, which he thinks will need the help of the next generation to complete the original goal of starting every translation by 2025.

Our Savior's Strategy of Communication

Richard Land Portrait

In the book of Revelation the risen, ascended Lord Jesus Christ appears to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos and, among other things, gives the Beloved Apostle a letter to each of seven churches in Asia Minor. In each of the letters if the church was doing something right He always told them what they were doing well before He told them what they were doing wrong. Would it not revolutionize our churches if Christians applied Jesus' strategy in discussions and disagreements with our brothers and sisters in Christ?

Texas Megachurch's Cave on Property Battle May Hurt Other Congregations Considering Leaving PCUSA

A decision by Highland Park Presbyterian Church (HPPC) of Dallas to pay Presbyterian Church (USA) $7.8-milion for a building that the congregation built in the 1920s, nearly 60 years before it joined PCUSA, may strand countless other congregations as they struggle with leaving PCUSA over its policy of allowing non-celibate homosexuals to marry and be in leadership.

A Warning Against Apathy

David Curry Open Doors USA

Last week's presidential speech on the crisis in Iraq and Syria highlighted that we are entering a battle, albeit from a distance, following the gruesome murder of two American journalists (and, more recently, a British aid worker). These murders are particularly shocking to the Western mind — how could anyone do something so gruesome?

A Society's Soul: How to Tell Its Condition

Mark Creech

"Abortion would virtually disappear tomorrow if it were not for the willful violation of God's great charter of marriage and purity. The abortion problem begins with a rebellion that says, 'I will do as I please for pleasure. I reject the limits prescribed by God in favor of personal satisfaction."

A Message to the Church From a So-Called 'Ex-Gay'

matt moore

With the ever quickening shift of our culture away from a moral/biblical view toward sexuality, I think there is a very real temptation for some Christians, especially in the American Church, to shift alongside the culture and adopt a different (unbiblical) view of sexuality…or just to sit back and remain silent about it.

10 Warning Signs That a Relationship Could Become Abusive

Karl Benzio

When behavior shocks the world — whether a high-profile murder, domestic violence involving a sports star or even corporal punishment uncertainties surrounding a football player — there are always questions: "Where were the signs that this could happen?" "Why didn't we see this coming?"

7 Danger Signs for Caregivers

Peter Rosenberger

Despite all their skills, blinding speed and apparent competency, all caregivers suffer from the same challenge: What they do is unsustainable. It's simply a matter of time before a caregiver's body, emotions and/or their wallet will break down.

Are Church Planters Skirting Inner-City Life for the 'Sexy' Urban Mission Field?

Christian minister D.A. Horton

Contrary to a time when urban areas were abandoned in a rush of white flight to the more racially-homogenous suburbs, eager and excited church planters are now flocking to cities like L.A. and NYC, holding up the banner of God's call in Jeremiah 29:7 to "seek the good of the city." But, according to urban apologist and former church planter D.A. Horton, his peers mostly seem intent on seeking the welfare of the safe and gentrified urban areas.

9/11 in NYC: 2014 Prayers and Remembrances

Paul de Vries portrait

From Rockefeller Center I took the subway to St. Paul's Chapel, directly across the street from where the World Trade Center Twin Towers had stood, on the east side of WTC. Thirteen years ago those towers became a huge pile of massive steel, toxic ash, broken concrete, human remains, and burning fuel from the airplanes and massive tanks full of heating oil for the Towers.

9/11 in New York City: Liberty and Prayer for All

Paul de Vries portrait

Thirteen years have passed since the tragic terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers. We remember that day as if it were yesterday. Two years ago I wrote on our reflections on 9/11. Much has changed, yet what matters remains the same.
