7 Benefits of Attending a Healthy Church

A healthy church is kind of like a healthy family. It just oozes with encouragement and mutual care. And when you experience it, you reap the benefits deep within your soul. With that in mind, here are 7 benefits of attending a healthy church:

The Wonk Room ›

  • Did the United Nations Commit War Crimes in Gaza?

    David French

    On Wednesday I urged conservatives to challenge jihadists and their enablers in international tribunals, including the U.N. Our ACLJ international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice, sent a letter to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights detailing Hamas's war crimes and describing exactly how her accusations against Israel lead to further use of human shields and further abuse of civilian facilities.

  • James Foley Beheading Proves Evil is Real

    Ashley Pratte

    In the wake of the gruesome beheading of American journalist, James Wright Foley, it is important to remember that the growing threat of radical Islam is very real.

  • ISIS, Hamas Aren't Extremists, Just at the Final Stage of Islam?

    Bethany Blankley

    Claiming Muhammad or Islam is peaceful is like claiming a toddler has won the Tour de France. No spectator or sports enthusiast would ever take seriously a toddler racing a bike. But, they'd have to take seriously a well-invested and trained adult, especially if the race tore through their town.

  • A Christian Response to Ferguson

    Jerry Newcombe

    When will the rioting in Ferguson, MO stop? There has been much mayhem---including the police using tear gas---and much looting in the St. Louis suburb. The media covers this story heavily. Some estimate there may be as many media members as there are protesters.

  • Sharks and Islamists: Are They Both Misunderstood?

    Raymond Ibrahim

    Recently I spent some time watching Shark Week on television. Being fascinated with large predatory fish, I've watched many shark programs throughout the years. And I've reached one conclusion: the "liberal" response one is accustomed to when the topic of Islam and Islamists come up—that they are misunderstood, that we need to respect their ways and be tolerant, that it's our fault we get attacked—has become so embedded in the Western psyche that it now colors our understanding of the animal world as well.

  • Gun Rights Supporters Beware; Obama Still Has You In His Sights

    Scottie Hughes

    I want to take advantage of the words of Rahm Emanuel when he said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste," as we are enduring several crises here presently in the world today. It's like a buffet of blood, riots, and death leaving gluttonous journalists never hungry for negative content. However, rather than join in the glass is half empty crowd, I decided there has to be something good coming out of all the turmoil of today.

  • Israel Under Siege: An Evangelical Diary (Day 2)

    olive tree israel

    Today we traveled to Neot Kedumium, the Biblical Landscape Reserve in Israel, a 600-acre plot of land near Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion Airport that has been reclaimed from desert to land that produces many kinds of trees, plants, grains, olives, and fruit mentioned in the Bible. It was truly inspiring to see how the Israelis have re-forested not only this plot, but also much of Israel. Israel is the only country in the world that had more acres of forest in 2000 than they did in 1900. Everyone in our delegation planted a sapling tree to help further re-forest Israel.

  • Down Syndrome Individuals Deserve More Than Our Sympathy, They Need Our Time and Help

    Ken Connor

    The adoption of a sliding scale of human dignity is a dangerous process. If those with Down syndrome are less worthy of life because of their diminished faculties, what about those suffering from Alzheimer's, or Parkinson's, or the regular deterioration that comes with aging? No one is safe. All become at increased risk of disposal as time exacts its toll.
