Os Guinness on 'Scandal of American Church': 'Huge Majority Yet Culturally Uninfluential'

The Church in America is on the "low ebb" of society when it comes to its overall impact on today's culture and is in need of "reformation" so that it can once again be the "salt" and "light" that Jesus called it to be, evangelical author and social critic Os Guinness said.

gordon-boronow

Today, I think most people believe that for the government, if not for themselves personally, money really does grow on trees. Encouraged by the magic of Keynesian Economics, politicians have been allowed to spend $20 trillion more than they collected in taxes.

Silent Preachers Deny Christ

I think preachers are some of the greatest traitors to the cause of Christ. Like Peter, I don't think they mean to deny their Lord, but they do it all the time. They just don't realize how badly they're caught up in their own weakness.

The story, which was published over the weekend in The New York Times, has infuriated scores of Americans. It also sadly has reinforced negative stereotypes of Christians as legalistic and hypocritical jerks, who simultaneously rail against abortion, while shaming those who choose life.

Can a Christian Ever Really Be Free From Porn?

We regularly say things like, "Through God all things are possible," or, "God offers us freedom from our sins," but in the next breath, we talk about porn and sin as "something we will always have to deal with."

Gloria Steinem: Own It. You Are Pro-Abortion.

Pro-abortion eugenicists, like Steinem, are in a constant state of denial, claiming they're "pro-choice", not "pro-abortion". Apparently pro-slavery politicians weren't really for slavery, they were merely pro-jobs ... or pro-economic freedom ... or pro-trade.

'Adult' Is Not a Verb

"#Adulting" is what kids post on social media to congratulate themselves for the rather ordinary feats of paying the bills, finishing the laundry, or just getting to work on time. If our kids don't know what it means to be adults, parents, we should be asking ourselves, are we teaching them?

Pray for Pence; He May Be President Soon

u-s-vice-president-mike-pence

The polar opposite of Donald Trump in every discernable way – policy convictions, demeanor, style, graciousness, thoughtfulness – Pence is in the midst of a whirlwind that conservatives (and all Americans) need him to emerge from in-tact.

France and Down Syndrome

To most Americans, Charles de Gaulle was, as one writer put it, "an obnoxious, overly ambitious man who, in the grand French manner, strutted sitting down." But he had a daughter with a disability and she was the apple of his eye.

Whoa — I Just Agreed With Oprah!

I must confess that I do not agree very often with Oprah Winfrey, because I find that she tends to push people away from faith in Jesus Christ, not toward it. But I was impressed with a statement she made over the weekend — a statement that echoes one of Jesus' teachings.

When Tammy and I got married over 26 years ago, we looked forward to raising children who love Jesus. By the grace of God, we have witnessed the work of the Holy Spirit leading our two daughters and two sons to love, trust, and follow Jesus
