I actually teared up on election night. Given the concerns I raised about Donald Trump during the campaign, one might think I was crying tears of sadness. But I wasn't. I was crying tears of sheer relief.
My favorite movies always include what my theater professor in college called "exaltation" – a character who remains true to his principles and therefore is exalted, even if he loses or dies.
Do Christians want leaders or lemmings? The recent controversy concerning Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), suggests we'd prefer the latter.
Christmas this year falls on a Sunday, which has some churchgoers in a tizzy.
Americans have just elected someone who is arguably the most morally flawed person to ever hold our nation's highest office —and they did it with the overwhelming support of evangelicals.
"Does this make you more feminist?" The question came from a female reporter for a secular magazine, who was interviewing me for an upcoming story on the gender gap in the evangelical church.
I honestly don't know what makes me more sick. Listening to Trump brag about groping women or listening to my fellow evangelicals defend him.
If Hillary Clinton becomes president, Karisa Johns Smith says she "will probably cry." Smith, a so-called "Jesus feminist" and doctoral candidate at Wheaton College, views a future President Hillary Clinton as an exemplary model for the next generation of women.
Jesus confronted the money-changers and challenged believers to give to the needy. But, would he support socialism?
No school has to allow transgender students in the bathrooms of the opposite sex, regardless of what President Obama says.
"I may have sinned in what I did," said Dr. Mark Yarhouse, relaying what a man who had undergone sex-change surgery told him. "All I know is at the time, I felt such excruciating distress. . . . What would you have me do now?"
If you had asked me three months ago what the greatest threat to evangelicalism is, I might have said the evangelical Left.
I usually get a fair amount of push-back and hear some common defenses for sending kids to public school. But do these arguments actually hold up to scrutiny?
Would you send your children to a Muslim school? I have yet to find a Christian parent who says yes to that question — and the reason is obvious. We don't want our kids indoctrinated into Islam. We want them to become Christians.
In a Chicago Tribune article published Monday, I suggested that Wheaton College professors need worldview training. I'm sure that may sound presumptuous, given that most of them hold doctoral degrees, which I do not.
What is at stake in the debate concerning whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God? This is the first question I posed to Dr. Miroslav Volf and Dr. Nabeel Qureshi in a podcast discussion on the topic I published earlier this week.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is facing sharp criticism because it promoted Black Lives Matter at its Urbana 15 student missions conference last week, but specifically excluded two student pro-life groups.
In part two, the itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries discusses Islam's link to violence. He also discusses why Muslims today are especially open to the Gospel.
Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? This has become the focus of a national discussion following the controversy over this issue at Wheaton College.
The evangelical flagship, Wheaton College, has issued a statement affirming that "salvation is through Christ alone," following the assertion by some of its faculty that Muslims and Christians "worship the same God."
Americans are not reassured by Obama's dismissive attitude or lectures on Islamophobia; they're terrified by them. Quite frankly, the only thing as scary as radical Islamic terrorists is the leader of the free world denying their expansive reach and influence.
Is it wrong for Christians to consider reasons to not admit Syrian refugees? Many believe it is and are denouncing Christians who believe otherwise, especially politicians.
Despite the recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Education against a suburban Chicago high school, no school has to allow boys in girls locker rooms, or vice-versa.
Planned Parenthood actually instructs its supporters to "treat tough questions as general issues and don't respond to specifics." There's a good reason for that. It's because Planned Parenthood's talking points bear little resemblance to the truth.
This week, the U. S. Senate is expected to consider bills to ban abortions after 20 weeks; to defund Planned Parenthood; and to hold abortion providers criminally liable for failing to provide medical care to babies born alive.
