Rohingya Crisis: Babies Chopped in Half, Mothers and Daughters Gang Raped

Christian, Jewish and Muslim activists recently traveled to Bangladesh and spoke with dozens of the Rohingya Muslim refugees who were among the estimated 700,000 who fled genocidal violence committed by the Myanmar government last year and are now sharing the horrors that innocent families have faced.


I Was at the Wheaton Meeting; It Wasn't 'Crazy Trump Bashing'

News has been spreading about the meeting of 50 ethnically and denominationally diverse evangelical leaders at Wheaton College earlier this week to discuss the current condition of the movement. Unfortunately, some sources and reporters who were not at the gathering have been framing it as a "crazy Trump bashing" spectacle (CBN News) that led some to "walk out of the meeting" in protest (Fox News).


The Explosive Nature of Abiding


Sometimes we misinterpret Jesus' familiar call for us to abide in Him found in the 15th chapter of the Gospel according to John. Abiding seems like a tranquil, passive, resting sort of call. The world will hate the call to abide.


How the Bible Defines Worship


Many of the "worship wars" today are fueled by, I believe, differing views of the nature of worship itself. I believe that a fundamental step toward resolving these debates is to seek to understand how the Bible itself defines worship.

The Saddest Part of the Stormy Daniels Story


Porn star Stormy Daniels may be having the time of her life. She may be enjoying her newfound fame, at the expense of President Trump. She may be making boatloads of money with her "Make America Horny Again" tour and other endeavors. But at the end of the day, this is a sad story.


How to Pray Authentically: The Four Position Prayer


When I first became a part of the family of Christ I was pretty clueless. I had no idea how to study the Bible, and I didn't really know how to pray. Prayer is insanely important to the Christian life. If you aren't praying at least once a day it's hard to say that your even a Christian.

The Lure of Isolation


Isolation is often very attractive, and it is on the rise with no signs of slowing down. Nearly twenty years ago Robert Putnam issued his warning about isolation before restaurant booths would be filled with people staring at their iPhones instead of connecting with each other, before binge-watching Netflix would become common in our culture, and before social media was invented.


Confessions of a 'Christian Constitutionalist'


After a recent column on "fake news," someone sent me an email, accusing me of propagating fake news by saying the Bible had anything to do with the founding of America. Unfortunately, this reader, like so many others, fails to understand the historical truth that the Bible played a unique role in helping to create the U.S. Constitution.


Should I Tithe or Get Out of Debt?


When should we begin tithing? We are currently in 'the red' each month, relying on credit cards to fill in small gaps. Currently there is no extra, no savings, etc. If we tithe now, we will have to stop payment on another creditor, which seems irresponsible. What do you suggest?

When rapture and end times rumors come they can make skeptics of Christianity. Instead, let's ignore the rumors and live like Christ suggests.
