Evangelicals and Israel's Birthday

As we prepare to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israel's independence (May 14, 2018) we need to explain to others, and to remind ourselves, why many evangelicals fervently support Israel and the Jewish people.

Easter: Its True Meaning

It is often said that in America if you want to know what people think is really important, follow the money. In those terms, Christmas is the winner hands down. But for Christians who take their faith seriously, Easter is the culmination of all history.

Thoughts on the Home Going of Billy Graham

I am sad for us, but I am happy for Billy Graham. The Apostle Paul told us that to live is Christ and to die is to gain more of Him (Phil. 1:21). I am confident the first words Billy Graham heard when he entered into glory were "well done, thy good and faithful servant."

We should seize this tragic case to publicize the epidemic of domestic violence in our culture. We should encourage those victimized to come forward, we should take their allegations seriously and we should encourage all victims to remove themselves and their children from physical danger immediately, helping them to find alternative living arrangements when necessary.

A theological-doctrinal controversy has erupted among prominent evangelical leaders concerning whether Christians, in seeking to reach millennials in a post-Christian world, should focus paramount attention on the bodily resurrection of Jesus on the first Easter Sunday, or alternatively, should emphasize the complete accuracy and veracity of Holy Scripture.

What America Needs Most on 15th Anniversary of 9/11

All of us remember the rush to attend churches and the solace people found in their faith. Unfortunately, the return to faith for many faded quickly, and within months we returned to "normal." However, the new "normal" was different from the old normal with heightened security measures, loss of freedoms, and a significant loss of peace of mind.
