Gloucester just isn't on the map. Most visitors to this part of England, not far from the border with Wales, instead spend their time in the Cotswolds. They miss out on old pubs, historic buildings and notable churches that line the city's streets.
In effect, what the court declared is that universities must choose between biblical standards and accreditation. Put another way, the court ruled that Christianity and higher education are incompatible. I am not exaggerating in the least.

I have a pretty good track record of seeing the future of churches in America. I hope I am not making such a statement out of arrogance or delusion.
It is one thing to bring fair criticisms against Israel. It is another thing to single out Israel for unrelenting, biased, and unfair criticism. And when an individual or organization continually treats Israel unfairly and brings false accusations against the nation, that individual or organization has gone beyond anti-Zionism.
It is God's intent for a young man's father to be the dominant influence in his life. In today's culture, this role is all too often filled by strangers--an idolized athlete or an entertainer.
Often it is assumed that followers of Jesus don't struggle with the tough questions of faith. Nothing could be further from the truth. We struggle just as anyone else struggles.
There's something extraordinarily Biblical about Christians intentionally sharing the Gospel with others. From the bold early believers at the beginning of the church (Acts 4:31) to the Gospel proclaiming 144,000 Jewish evangelists at the end of time (Revelation 7), believers sharing the Good News with unbelievers is the norm, not the exception in Scripture.

Did you know that our human nature, our flesh, if you will, does not like to pray? Many churchgoing Christians will fight revival the way a sinner will resist coming to Christ in the first place. We are so independent and rebellious we don't like to get on our knees, let alone on our faces, before God. We will gladly go to almost anything at the church except for prayer meetings.
Jesus showed us that God is personal, like a wise, loving, tender, and watchful father. Jesus always used this form of address when praying.
I was attacked for rebuking a radical-right pastor who rejoices when gays are killed. You would think, then, that our tolerant LGBT friends would appreciate my approach. Not a chance! To them, I'm a homophobe of the worst kind.

I recently watched a documentary on the life of David Cassidy titled David Cassidy: The Last Session, and let me tell you, it was just absolutely heartbreaking. To me, the story could be summed up this way: David had a deep longing for a father.
Fatherhood that shows signs of the love like that of our Heavenly Creator is something to be lauded. It is becoming increasingly difficult to be a father, however, for certain men in our communities.

Being a father isn't always easy, but we have a heavenly Father with unconditional love that helps make it possible.

An epidemic of staggering and tragic proportions is sweeping the country. And Christians are not immune.
