Grief: Friend and Foe


I have perceived two pervasive responses in our culture that seem to influence and dominate how we react to grief. The first treats grief as an unwelcome, uninvited trespasser to be shunned or dismissed.


Detained for Hours by Police as Men Spit on the Name of Jesus. My Day in Jerusalem

As we tried to leave quietly, one agitator started following me and yelling "Missionary!" in the crowded market place. He was then joined by other ultra-Orthodox Jews who started to surround me and challenge me. At that point, I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to share my faith boldly and clearly.

Proponents of legal abortion maintain that legalizing abortion will not result in more abortions, but will instead improve the safety of abortions. However, an extremely broad body of economic and public health research clearly indicates that various legal protections of unborn children reduce the incidence of abortion.


Presenting a Different Jesus


The Jesus being presented in many churches today is different because He is not the One we find in the Bible. The popular Jesus being presented is the one who fills churches to the rafters with fans and not disciples. Many of our modern churches focus on self-improvement instead of dying to self.


God and the Santa Fe School District


The hostility against religion in general, but Christianity in particular, can get downright vicious. In Santa Fe, the ACLU filed suit to halt prayers at a baccalaureate service, privately sponsored by a group of ministers in 1995. Just to make sure they got the message, Kent declared, "Anybody who violates these orders, no kidding, is going to wish that he or she had died as a child when this court gets through with it."

An Invitation to God to Invade Our Schools


"Forget about trying to get prayer back in schools. We need to start praying in our schools." I want to encourage committed Christian young people on our campuses throughout America to join together for a few minutes each day for prayer.

The Father Factor


Fathers, in this article I would like to call you like a good coach, to come off of the bench and get in the game. The game I am talking about is the game of life.


Politics Disintegrating Into Gotcha Moments


Before the politically correct crowd started criticizing free speech constantly, you rarely heard about gaffes by politicos. Now the news is full of them. The left figured out that by labeling more and more speech as "hate" and "intolerant," they could take down figures out the right without ever actually debating them on the merits of issues.
