When Christian Conservatives Are Compared to the 9/11 Terrorists

You may have thought I was overstating things in my recent article, "Will California Go from Banning Religious Books to Burning Them?" You may have thought I was exaggerating when I referenced LGBT activists who compared Christian conservatives to ISIS and Al-Qaeda. Be assured that there was not a word of hyperbole in what I wrote.

Google "California school district says parents can't pull kids from new LGBT sex ed," and you can read the alarming article for yourself. A "toolkit" that offers kids tips on using sex toys and doing things that cannot be written in this article is one of the controversial aspects, and parents may not be able to opt out. Our arrogance as a state, and as a nation, is appalling.

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.

Courts and the Cause of Christ: Why Christians Need to Care

jack-phillips

Why should Christians care about cases such as Masterpiece Cakeshop? Do cases like this take us away from the centrality of gospel proclamation? Shouldn't Jack Phillips, Joanna Duka, and Breanna Koski just lay down their rights in the face of opposition for the sake of being like Jesus?

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.

Pride Fuels Ingratitude

Entitlement always rises as pride rises. It is impossible to be filled with humility and a sense of entitlement at the same time. Whenever we feel we are owed something it is because we have forgotten that God is the One who gives all good things.
