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?

Tammie Jo Shults: A Fresh Breeze

Into the fetid air of the great dismal that is today's selfie-celebrity cultural swamp comes the fresh breeze of a Tammie Jo Shults. Shults is a living example of the "remnant" described in both the Old and New Testaments.

It happened again, another university professor was exposed as an unhinged liberal, filled with uncontrollable rage. Randa Jarrar tweeted that Mrs. Bush was a "racist" and that she was glad the "the witch is dead." Throughout the country, in far too many colleges and universities, administrators have hired nutcases like Jarrar to teach impressionable youngsters.

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.

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?

chuck-bentley

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?
