A sign of the times? In movies and on TV, what was once evil becomes if not good, at least sympathetic – or cool. And NBC's "Dracula" is no exception.
When confronting the scourge of pornography, maybe a little seeing is believing. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once famously wrote that while "hard-core pornography" is hard to define, "I know it when I see it." Most of us would agree.
We're used to the enemies of God's Word mishandling the Bible. But a far worse problem is what its friends do.
No matter what your atheist friends or relatives tell you, they've got deep spiritual longings. And Jesus is the answer to those longings.
It seems so logical: live together, see if it works, and then get married. Except things just don't work out that way.
Can you imagine a husband telling his wife the following: "Okay, honey. The lease is up. I'm trading you in." Well, one lawyer can.
"Is Eric Metaxas the Next Chuck Colson?" That was the jarring Washington Post headline a couple of days ago. At least it was jarring to me, because the simple answer is an emphatic NO. But a more nuanced answer would be a very qualified "yes," but I'll get to that in a minute.
How is it that disgraced politicians keep popping back into public life without too much trouble?
As Weiss rightly points out, a lot of the rhetoric about sexuality in Christian circles is characterized by anger and fear over the so-called "porno-culture" and what it's doing to our children and families, and that it may be too late to change anything.
This Fourth of July, I opened up the New York Times, and whammo! I found an extremely misleading ad sponsored by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. "Celebrate Our Godless Constitution," it read. The ad featured pictures of six founding fathers, and cherry-picked quotes that made it appear that these men were die-hard atheists—or at least, did not approve of Christianity influencing our nascent nation's government.
Improve the human race by eliminating the weak. That's a key tenet of eugenics — a philosophy that is alive and well right here in the good ol' U.S.
Have you ever asked a young atheist why he or she doesn't believe? Well, one researcher did. And the answers may surprise you.
You've heard it over and over: Gay "marriage" is inevitable. Well, at least that's what its supporters want you to believe.
The secular powers that be are putting pressure on pastors to limit their practice of the Christian faith to just the four walls of the local church.
Cultural views on homosexuality are changing so rapidly, it's hard to keep track of what is or isn't homophobic anymore.
The Supreme Court is deciding whether or not to redefine marriage – and we're hearing a lot of claims about how well children do when they're reared by homosexual couples. Sad to say, some of those claims are being made to the Supremes – and they are completely false.
Ten years ago, the preamble to the newly-drafted constitution of the European Union omitted any reference to Christianity. It was an unmistakable reminder of Christianity's diminished influence in a part of the world it helped create.
Author Joel Stein, who's forty-three, begins with some sobering data. For instance, according to the National Institutes of Health, the incidence of narcissistic personality disorder is three times as high among twenty-somethings than among those over sixty-five.
It's a potent reminder that while we may not be certain who the winners in the upheavals rocking Syria and the rest of the Middle East might be, we already know who the losers will be: Christians.
It takes a truly great man to resist seizing power when it is clearly within his grasp.
Some pro-abortion folks today are a little upset at a series of undercover videos released by Lila Rose. While not as grisly as the stories coming out of Gosnell's house of butchery, these videos nonetheless show the chilling and callous attitude of late-term abortion providers.
The horrific stories from the abortion clinic of Kermit Gosnell are the brutally logical spawn of Roe v. Wade. As the liberal commentator Roger L. Simon has written, "The trial of Dr. Gosnell is a potential time bomb exploding in the conventional liberal narrative on abortion itself."
Some Christians are heroic because they fought back against evil. But today we'll learn about a hero who was great because he didn't fight back.
Tony Bennett once sang, "I love you. You love me. People do, why don't we marry young?"
If boys are going to grow up to be men, they need strong examples of manhood.
