Jesus Smashes the Gospel of Self-Esteem

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.

3 Ways Christians Are on the Sidelines of Cultural Conversations

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.

What If You Share JESUS?

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.

No, God Did Not Prescribe the Use of Cannabis in the Bible

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!

greg-stier

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.

jay-hobbs

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.

Child Baptism and Actual Discipleship

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.

The Unseen Culprits Behind Human Trafficking

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.

Should Church Worship Spaces Be Used for Yoga?

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?

Why Didn't God Heal Nabeel Qureshi?

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.
