There is a great deal of consternation and, I might add, confusion over the nature and impact of postmodernism.
The church, first and foremost, is not defined as an institution but as a living body comprising God’s people.
For more than two centuries, America has produced generation after generation of extraordinary young men like Ryan Miller (and yes, some women) who have answered the call to defend freedom.
Obviously, one of the reasons I think we see more and more young people devoid of any sense of duty is that they’re not being taught the virtue of duty.
Today, we live in a culture in which men (in particular) are no longer encouraged to “do their duty,” to serve something greater than themselves and certainly never at risk to themselves.
The church will be judged by the way it loves one another. Will we love courageously, trusting the Lord to use us as redemptive instruments or will we succumb to the cowardice of noncompassion?
Phoebe’s story is one more in what appears to be a growing problem in America’s schools, which raises the inevitable question, “What does this say about us and our culture?”
While the full implications of this law are not yet fully realized, we can be certain that America has crossed a critical boundary that promises to fundamentally change this nation forever
John has authored what I think is one of the most important books written in our generation. The vision Armstrong offers … is neither unanimity nor uniformity nor union but loving cooperation in life and mission
In today’s mass societies, it only takes one percent of the people making a dedicated choice — contrary to the mainstream’s choice — to create a movement that can change the world.
The question ultimately becomes, “What purpose drives your business?” Suffice it to say, the vast majority of American businesses are no longer guided by a consciously Christian conception of reality
As most observers are aware there is a dearth of consciously Christian worldview knowledge within the church
One only has to watch the latest season of the hit series American Idol, which began last week, to realize that many in this generation are obsessed with fame and fortune to the point of radical self-delusion.
The "wound" apparent in the American Church is indeed serious and our natures are such that we tend to minimize the spiritual complacency present in our own lives and among God’s people.
This is why marriage both as an ideal and in reality should matter to the church, because its condition within the body of Christ either serves or opposes the gospel of the kingdom.
