Dealing with a hurricane is bad enough, but add on top of it the promotion of the myth that it's all because of man-made climate change — that makes it worse.
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.
I can't remember a time when our country, our communities, and even our families have been so ideologically divided. Not only do we disagree but we tend to see others not only as wrong, but as our enemies.
This Equifax security breach has me really concerned. What does it mean if I am among the millions who had their information stolen?
"Mother!" is nothing short of a horrifying mockery of women, marriage and motherhood. That is no great surprise amidst the current trend of cultural matricide in America.
On this International Day of Peace it's important that we pause to celebrate where significant progress has been made in peacebuilding efforts around the world.
Since the left and complicit journalists in the mainstream media cannot defeat President Donald Trump on the issues or legitimate grounds such as dishonesty, they have resorted to a superficial collection of tactics.
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.
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.
Yes, it would be wonderful if Jesus returned for His people this week, but it's not going to happen. Count on it. The Second Coming will not take place this year on September 23.
These days, colleges expect their students to drink like fish and hook up frequently. And they're just trying to keep a lid on it. Sort of.
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.
Much has been said, and written, about Senator Dianne Feinstein's prejudicial questioning of Notre Dame Professor Amy Coney Barrett in her nomination hearing for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. But Senator Al Franken's line of questioning was also disconcerting. Franken used Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) definition of hate to characterize her as extreme.
President Trump's first speech before the U.N. was vintage Trump, for better or for worse. One line in particular epitomized why some people love him and others loathe him: "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself." Accordingly, his speech drew enthusiastic praise as well as breathless condemnation.
With so much devastation in the news, it's hard not to ask God, "Why?" Here's some help for responding to questions about natural disasters and God.
While I understand and respect the importance of borders and security, those protected by this policy are worthy of our compassion and concern. This is not a question of border security — these individuals have already been in the country for many years, some for decades.
Linking the "Unsealed" film with all evangelical Christians is unfair. When we wake up Sunday to find the video's prophecy unfulfilled, even more people are likely to mock our faith. But such is the culture we inhabit.
Here are some obvious questions that are going through many people's minds. Could it be that God chooses to heal some and not others? If so, how can we pray for healing with any confidence?
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?
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.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence suggested hurricanes were "signs of Mother Nature's rage and wrath" for not believing in manmade climate change and electing Donald Trump. Natural disasters aren't leftwing attack dogs who target those who dare question the cogency of man-caused and man-controlled climate change.
If you think North Korea's dictators are bad for the world, just imagine what it's like to be a Christian there. Operation World says that although no one really knows their true number, there could be as many as 350,000 underground Christians. Where did they all come from, and how do they survive?
Commendably, the Trump administration is set to initiate a new Iran policy, which will be announced in October. Such change is imperative.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have made clear that many problems are too big for the government to tackle alone.
What should we do about public monuments to leaders and heroes of the Confederacy? And what about monuments to our Founding Fathers who were slaveholders, men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison?
Whatever happened to good and evil? Evil is often nowadays called good. And good is called evil. It seems too many would prefer being raptured out of responsibility, rather than engaging society to make a difference.
10 Reasons Why Dare 2 Share Live Could Be the Most Unique Event Your Youth Group Will Ever Experience
Dare 2 Share Live is fast approaching. On September 23rd we will, by God's grace, gather 50,000 teenagers in 69 locations across the nation to inspire, equip and unleash them to pray for, care for and share the gospel with the people in their cities and on their social media feeds.
The headline of a recent story in USA Today reads "Faith groups provide the bulk of disaster recovery, in coordination with FEMA." These groups don't "merely" supplement government relief efforts. In many instances, they are the government response.
It is impossible to be a Christian without the Holy Spirit. So is God's Spirit in everyone?
Many churches have become too busy for their own good. They have so many activities, programs, events, and services that they are wearing out their congregations.
