Racism is an egregious sin when committed. But greater still, no matter the race, is the sin of him who will not govern himself and demands that he be served rather than to serve.
Many argue one's faith should be separate from the public square; Christians, in particular, should not be involved in politics, inaccurately arguing it's unconstitutional.
Why do I take the stands that I take? What motivates me to swim against the tide of cultural decline?
We have long known from the social science research that children raised in an intact family have better physical and mental health and economic security, on average, than children in other family or household structures. But—more miracles?
The depths of anti-Christian depravity found among some of the intelligentsia in our post-Christian culture has reached a new low. As if that were possible.
I like to think I'm usually more aware of my surroundings, but it was so snowy and windy that I wouldn't have heard his footsteps even if he had he been stomping. It happened so fast.
Democrat Senate staffers did not even talk to the heads of the agencies that oversaw the programs. It took seven years and was a hatchet job targeted at Bush. The 6,000-page report was slightly longer than a Tom Cruise pre-nup.
Many "Christians" are now suggesting that those who embrace the homosexual lifestyle can live in harmony with biblical Christianity. And more and more Evangelicals with gay children are challenging the church to rethink its position. But can we re-think truth?
Masada stands as a stark testimonial to a chapter in history most thought would never happen again. The scope of Roman savagery is a study in the fallen nature of godless, corrupt tyrants who have no regard for human life.
The impending retirement wave of Baby Boomers and its impact on American society is something that the Center for a Just Society has been discussing for several years. The issue of a rapidly aging society combined with a rapidly shrinking worker base may not be a sexy topic, but it's an extremely important one that will impact society for generations to come.
There has been considerable interest on my previous posts dealing with pastors' salaries. One of the most common questions that I am asked is: "How do churches determine the salary of a pastor?"
There is only one answer to the racial divide in this country, and the Church needs to supply it.
I received a lengthy e-mail recently from a Christian in Wales. Having experienced much personal loss in his life, he wrote, "I rarely have peace." At the same time, he described times of worship when God's peace has filled his soul. So is this normal, and perhaps even to be expected in the life of a believer?
No matter how one might feel personally about the precise nature of these two individual incidents in Missouri and New York City, the undeniable reality is that when black Americans and white Americans view them through such contrasting lenses, we still have a serious rift in the nation's social fabric.
Yes, the tax burden the U.S. government imposes on its people is more onerous than those imposed by the governments of such "progressive" countries as Sweden, Norway, and the United Kingdom.
In the book of Revelation the risen, ascended Lord Jesus Christ appears to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos and, among other things, gives the Beloved Apostle a letter to each of seven churches in Asia Minor. In each of the letters if the church was doing something right He always told them what they were doing well before He told them what they were doing wrong. Would it not revolutionize our churches if Christians applied Jesus' strategy in discussions and disagreements with our brothers and sisters in Christ?
This is what makes IS such a grave threat to the civilized world. The closest analogy to IS in modern history is the U.S.S.R. (The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), which was dedicated to imposing communism worldwide, heedless of national boundaries.
Analysis: What Jonathan Gruber Taught Us About Obamacare: Call it the Arrogance of the Liberal Elite
"Call it the stupidity of the American voter," MIT economist Jonathan Gruber said in explaining how "Obamacare" got passed. Rather than being a "glib" and "thoughtless" remark, as Gruber testified to Congress Tuesday, his supposed "gaffes" are actually a clearly articulated explanation of the philosophy upon which the new healthcare law is based.
Analysis: Why Tolerant Liberals Can Win Their Fight With Intolerant Liberals; A Response to Robert P. George
Will those liberals who value diversity and tolerance of differing viewpoints lose their fight with the liberals who have worked to drive those who do not share their opinions from the public square?

Implementation of the Common Core State Standards Initiative has not gone well, supporters and critics alike now agree. Understanding why the education reform has been so rocky could aid future policy initiatives. Here are five of the main reasons Common Core has been a disaster.
