As citizens, we ought to insist that the President stand up to his "base" and articulate a vision of a healthy pluralism in the public square. Notice that the problem is not that this evangelical wants to "impose his religion" on the rest of society...

TIME magazine's recent cover story announces that, forty years after Roe, the pro-life side is winning the abortion debate. I say, "Not so fast." Yes, it's a win just that the concept of "pro-life" is still alive. The abortion rights movement probabl..

Christians talk a lot about premarital sex. And I think that's a mistake. I don't think it's a mistake because the issue is unimportant but because the grammar is skewed. The word "fornication" is almost gone from contemporary Christian speech. It so..

I overheard a man explain why he hated Christmas music. "Christmas is boring because there's no narrative tension," he said. "It's like reading a book with no conflict." Some of the blame is on our sentimentalized Christmas of the American civil reli..

Every year about this time, there's a lot of hubbub about a so-called "war on Christmas." We ought not to get outraged by all that, as though we were some protected class of victims. We ought to instead see the ways that our culture is less and less ..

The American people have decided that Barack Obama should have a second term. And, behind them, in the mystery of providence, God has decided that Barack Obama would be re-elected. So how should Christians respond to our once and future President?

The words "evangelical" and "fundamentalist" have very little meaning. "Evangelical" includes, for some people, everyone from J.I. Packer to T.D. Jakes to Brian McLaren. I tried my hand at explaining the spectrum, with tongue in cheek. A conservative..

I have a church member, a devoted Christian, who is an attorney specializing in divorce cases. Our church believes that divorce is (in almost every case) sin. If so, isn't he empowering sin? Should I counsel him to follow Christ by walking away from ..

According to a new study by the Pew Forum, Protestants are, for the first time in history, not a majority in the United States of America. I don't think that's anything for evangelical Protestants, or anyone else, to panic about. Frankly, we should b..

Law enforcement officials use the term "doctor shopping" to refer to the way those addicted to prescription pain medications seek to avert accountability. I've noticed the same thing going on when it comes to church accountability. The truth is, ther..

Tim Tebow says he wants a wife with "a servant's heart." Does that make him a misogynist? Jezebel, a feminist website, picked up on comments Tebow made in an interview with Vogue magazine, in which he said he wanted a wife who lived up to the high st..

An "embryo" isn't a thing; he or she is a "who." These so-called "snowflakes" are brothers and sisters of the Lord Jesus and are stored in cryogenic containers in fertility clinics as the "extras" of IVF projects. They already exist, and they already..

Christians often wonder why Mormons believe such an incredible system: golden tablets translated with "magic glasses," an advanced society of ancient American Indian Israelites who left behind no archaeological evidence at all, an eternity of godhood..

It's worth Christians asking: just why are blasphemy laws wrong? Now, obviously, as Christians we disagree with Islam and its teachings. And, obviously, we stand in solidarity with our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. But why would such law..

I think this movie might be one more window on how the people we are called to love view us. The movie itself veers at times toward empathy. If there's any group easier to be demonized by Hollywood, one would think it would be undead Religious Right ..

Conservative Christians, obviously, aren't for getting naked in public and drunk anywhere. That said, I don't think there's anything here to be outraged about, as some sort of act of desecration. It was, to be sure, immature and stupid.

I had promised never to mention Pat Robertson here again. Every few months he says some crazy scandalous thing. Let me just say this bluntly. This is not just a statement we ought to disagree with. This is of the devil.

I received an email from a young minister who is discouraged. He's just starting out in ministry, and says his preaching is terrible. He's trying to improve, but is just starting out, and is mediocre. Here's what I think. Your first few sermons are a..

As a Mississippian and as a Baptist Christian, I cringed the other day when I heard that the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs had moved a couple's wedding ceremony to another venue, to keep a controversy from erupting in the church.
