You've certainly heard of Augustine, Luther, and Bonhoeffer. Great Christian heroes. Well, it's time to let Alopen inspire you, too!
Sometimes the Church's critics have every right to find fault. But they should at least get their facts straight.
In their rush to dismantle Christian morality, modern secularists would do well to read their history. I'll help them out.
If you think the era of totalitarianism is over, you haven't been paying attention to the headlines.
The promise of federal dollars always comes with strings attached. Find out how one college is rejecting the dollars and the strings.
It's not uncommon to hear CEOs say that their employees are their greatest asset. Far less common is to find CEOs who really mean it. I've got a great story for you.
Do you think that it's impossible to reverse an abortion? Well, praise God, think again!
I never thought I'd get to talk about Billy Graham, Elvis Presley, and John Wayne all in one BreakPoint commentary.
The First Amendment prohibits the establishment of a state religion in America. But is a newly-established religion already in place?
So, you want religious exemptions from supporting same-sex marriage and abortion? Well, two foundations are spending millions to put an end to your un-American activity.
It starts under the pretense of alleviating suffering, but it ends up killing the most vulnerable among us. I'm talking about physician-assisted suicide.
If you were a Christian in the media, would you be afraid to admit it? Well, one blogger was, but not for the reason you'd expect.
I just got back from lunch with one of the most amazing, godly women I've ever met. And I want you to hear her story.
Like the old TV show theme song said, Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name. And I would add, where folks know your faults and love you all the same.
The core message of the modern environmental movement seems to be utter contempt for the human species. Think I'm exaggerating?
Is it too much to ask people to listen politely to those with whom they disagree? I hope not.
The Bible has plenty of allies, not the least of which is the discipline of archaeology. Over the years, we've told you about some of the fascinating discoveries that have confirmed the accuracy of both the Old and New Testaments. Recently, archaeologists discovered the suspected remains of the palace where the trial of Jesus Christ may have taken place.
My recent piece in the Wall Street Journal went viral. Not surprisingly, the piece had plenty of critics. One scientist complained about "religious arguments for the existence of God thinly veiled as scientific arguments" and "allowing a Christian apologist to masquerade as a scientist." This objection essentially amounts to saying that only scientists should be allowed to talk about the religious implications of scientific things.

Most of the music you hear on these channels has little, if anything, to do with Jesus, and, in the off chance it does, it most likely won't be performed in a way that lends itself to the mystery of the Incarnation. Advent is supposed to be a time of reflection and contemplation, and what we listen to should further this goal. Since Spotify, Pandora and Music Choice aren't likely to be of much help, we need to create our own "channels."
There is only one answer to the racial divide in this country, and the Church needs to supply it.
For the first seventy or so years of Christianity's existence, the Greco-Roman world paid it relatively little attention.

Want to offend a Millennial? You could just open your Bible and read it in front of him. But if you live out the teachings of Scripture, you just might win him over.
In America, a city government has demanded that religious leaders turn over their sermons or face contempt of court charges, even possibly jail time. Words fail me. This is beyond outrageous. We have been warning for years that our religious liberties are in peril in every aspect of life.
Nearly eighteen centuries after the Plague of Cyprian, Christianity still prompts people to run towards the plague when virtually everyone else is running away. Now as then, this power confounds and confuses Christianity's critics.
For years the "pro-choice" crowd fought to change the subject whenever pro-lifers brought the debate back to the central question: are the unborn human? After all, you can't just choose to kill a human, no matter how inconvenient he or she might be.
