A woman dressed in a black veil shouting "Allahu akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic, injured two people with a box cutter in southern France on Sunday. The woman was arrested, with a prosecutor suggesting she has "psychiatric issues."
When it comes to the current crisis in immigration policy (a policy that is broken virtually every way a public policy can be broken), Americans and their elected representatives need to keep their eye on the ball — which means the primary, imperative concern must be the welfare and protection of the innocent children who are being victimized on both sides of the border.
The purpose of this article is not to discuss the current immigration controversy. I am not here to take a partisan, political position, nor do I want to bash or defend President Trump. And my goal is not to get into a lengthy treatment of Romans 13, quoted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions with reference to our immigration policies. Instead, I'm here to issue a warning on what's coming next. Prepare for the next onslaught against the Bible.
June 20 is World Refugee Day, sanctioned in 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly. Ongoing fighting, armed opposition, civil unrest, and political tensions, are some of the reasons for the refugee crisis. If anything can be done, however, more support from faith-based non-government organizations (FBOs) is needed.
I don't remember the last time a biblical citation generated so many headlines.
The immigration crisis unfolding on the US-Mexico border continues to dominate the news. Nearly two thousand children have been separated from their parents since a "zero tolerance" policy was adopted for those entering the US illegally.
Jeff Sessions' assessment that separating children from their parents is justified because Paul says in Romans 13 that it is God who establishes governments, and that the people should submit to their authority, highlights the legal slippery-slope of an asynchronous application of biblical edicts without regard to biblical context.
If someone disagrees with your views on gender, sexuality, marriage, Christianity, atheism, or politics, it doesn't mean hate is in their heart.
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.
Over 16,000 pro-life Christians have recently signed a petition asking that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge be protected from drilling. The reason we are speaking out is because we are "called by God to be a steward of America's majesty." And the Arctic Refuge is one of the most majestic places in our nation.
While Dr. Farrell identifies ten causes of the boy crisis, he found that by far the biggest cause is a lack of father involvement. He explains why children who have minimal or no father involvement (who are "dad deprived") suffer in more than 70 different areas in comparison to children who are "dad-enriched."
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.
There is hope. We will rise up. Great awakening is coming. Don't think it, know it. We see great struggle, brokenness, and strife. But we don't look upon the world, we look upon Jesus Christ, our glorious risen savior. Therefore we have great hope.
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. Immigrant fathers, those who are arriving and those who have made a home here, are too often deprived of their ability to care for and provide for their families.
Being a father isn't always easy, but we have a heavenly Father with unconditional love that helps make it possible.
A group of psychologists asked 551 American Christians what they think God looks like. The test subjects were shown hundreds of randomly varying pairs of faces and asked which of the two looked more like "the face of God."
We've been saying for years that there will be a pushback against LGBTQ extremism. And it's not because people are uncaring. Or intolerant. Or bigoted. Or unfair. Instead, the pushback comes as a rational reaction to the rising tide of transanity.
Some people will be drawn to the book because they are troubled by the ethics of the genocide of the Canaanites. In the last fifteen years, the problem of biblical violence generally and the ethics of the Canaanite genocide, in particular, have exploded like a brush fire on a tinder-dry field.
