Slavery, Hitler and Planned Parenthood

Ken Connor

Human beings have always had an extraordinary capacity for self-delusion. We justify horrible things by telling ourselves that we are acting in the service of a noble cause, or by dehumanizing the victims of our unjust actions.

Love Warns

Michael Brown

Love wins. Understood rightly, it is gloriously true. But love also warns. In fact, love that does not warn is not love at all.

Environmental Protection Agency Does More Harm Than Good

Susan Stamper Brown

Like the road to Hell, liberal ideas are usually paved with good intentions. But, as Ronald Reagan once said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so." And all that vast un-knowledge births monster government agencies like the EPA, which end up doing more harm than good.

Should We Watch Murders on Social Media?

Russell Moore

I watched a video this morning that I'm ashamed to say I viewed. No, it wasn't pornography — at least not the kind of pornography we typically think of. The video was the live shooting of two television journalists as they were reporting in Virginia.

Will We Survive the Obama Presidency and the Iranian Bomb?

Barack Obama

When, in 2012, I authored a cautionary tale about the dangers of a nuclear Iran, I never imagined a U.S. president who would, just a few years later, actively try to strengthen Iran's geopolitical and financial position while providing international legitimacy to the Iranian nuclear program. But sometimes truth is scarier than fiction.

Did God Send a Prophet to Rebuke John MacArthur?

John MacArthur

A self-proclaimed prophet from Scotland disrupted a Sunday morning service on August 16th as Pastor MacArthur stood behind the pulpit, rebuking him for teaching cessationism and for being divisive, announcing that he was a prophet sent by God.

Quiz: A Crooked Businessman, A Stripper and Caitlyn Jenner

Vince Antonucci pastors Verve, an innovative church that seeks to reach people who work on and live around the Las Vegas Strip.

No one would have questioned whether Jesus loved sinners. Watching how he treated people caught in sin, they might have questioned whether he hated sin, but they never would have questioned if he loved sinners. Today, no one questions whether Christians hate sin, but just about everyone questions whether we love sinners.

How to Run Your Race to Win

Joyce Meyer

We've all heard the phrase, "Everyone has a race to run." That just means we all have our own lives to live. And as Christians, God has a specific purpose and plan for each of us.

Should Christians Say 'God Bless America'?

God Bless America

A thoughtful Religion News Service commentary notes that some conservative Christians are now troubled by the sentiment of "God Bless America" in a time of state imposed same sex marriage. This trend of spiritual ambivalence towards the nation will likely continue and is itself troubling.

Sorry Donald, Substance Trumps Style

Susan Stamper Brown

Donald Trump's commanding lead in the polls is a solemn reminder that if we're not careful, another narcissistic good talker will be elected to complete the fundamental transformation President Obama began.

Josh Duggar: Talk Is Cheap

matt moore

I don't know Josh and couldn't know the true state of his heart toward Christ even if I did, but his ongoing hypocrisy depicts a colossal disconnect between his profession of faith and the life he actually leads.

Is Evolution Just a Shell Game?

Jerry Newcombe

As the school year begins to gear up again, it's a given that in classrooms across the country, evolution will be taught virtually everywhere and virtually always as a proven fact.

You Cannot Serve Both God and Internet Trolling

Christopher Benek

The intentional introduction of inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic posts with the deliberate intent of disrupting regular on-topic group discussion — commonly known as Internet trolling — has become a favorite pastime of many Christians in the world today.

Ten years after church denominations and emergency agencies were first on the scene in response to the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina, help still trickles in to rebuild the communities affected along the Gulf Coast.

'War Room' Director: 'Prayer Is Not a Spare Tire, It's the Steering Wheel'

War Room

If you knew your enemy was using a strategic plan to try to defeat you, wouldn't you adopt a battle plan of your own? You might be surprised to find that the most lethal weapon in your arsenal isn't a vengeful act, a firearm, or a lawsuit — it's prayer. That's the premise behind the dramatic new film "War Room," which director/producer duo Alex and Stephen Kendrick say is a "call to prayer."

David Ireland

Atheist-Turned-Pastor David Ireland Says Doubting God's Existence Is Just a Defense Mechanism (Video)

More than 30 years ago, former atheist David Ireland was just like any other nonbeliever — disinterested in God and far removed from faith. But in 1982, while completing his first degree in mechanical engineering at age 20, he found Christ.

If you take Highway 85 through Eau Claire, Wisconsin, you'll see a touching tribute from a husband to his late wife — thousands of bright yellow sunflowers lining the road for 4-and-a-half miles. Don Jaquish made it his mission to honor his wife Babbette's memory by planting fields of her favorite flower. Babbette died last November at 66, after a long battle with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow.

World's Largest Christian Wax Museum Uses Elvis, Elizabeth Taylor and Prince Charles to Spread the Gospel

BibleWalk crucifixion

The BibleWalk wax museum has been attracting a lot of attention lately — and not because of its detailed mannequins that depict scenes from the Old and New Testaments, but because several of the mannequins are repurposed from celebrity statues. Prince Charles, Elvis and Elizabeth Taylor are a just few famous faces out of over 300 figures, and the staff is continuing to add to the collection.
