While it seems insensitive to ask this while we grieve, people are wondering why didn't God heal Nabeel. After all, he was a brilliant and charismatic young man taken away from his wife Michelle and daughter Ayah, and the rest of us, far too early. Nabeel had so much more to give to his family and the Kingdom of God that his death seems completely senseless.
Jesus and the biblical authors predicted this thousands of years ago. Not that Trump and Clinton would be opponents in this election. But that people throughout history would behave like Trump and Clinton.
There's a new bumper sticker that says, "I already hate our next president!" Indeed, many folks can't see enough good reasons to vote for either Trump or Clinton.
"People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive," said Blaise Pascal. Indeed, attraction not reason is the engine of the LGBTQ movement.
I agree with Bruce Springsteen who cancelled his concert in my adopted home state of North Carolina because he objected to HB2 (the bathroom law).
Who needs the truth when you make so much "progress" by ignoring the truth and engaging in the very bigotry and name-calling you claim to oppose?
A liberal Supreme Court is not only a threat to democracy; it's a threat to stability.
How do we fix a world filled with murder, rape, betrayal, adultery, fraud, theft, sexual exploitation, pornography, bullying, abortion, terrorism, cheating, lying, child abuse, racism, assault, drugs, robbery, and countless other evils?
Should Christians ever disobey their government? Some say no. But Kim Davis sides with Martin Luther King and thinks civil disobedience is justified.
It's about 2 a.m. on an August morning in 1979. A beautiful young nurse by the name of Lynne Knight is living in a bungalow behind a larger house in Torrance, California.
Frank Turek is an award winning author and speaker. We've been told that people who want to maintain the man-woman definition of marriage are "on the wrong side of history." Perhaps so.
The Supreme Court has told us. Five justices imposed their own morality that elevates homosexuality to a virtue in our society.
Sex is the new religion in America, and it's a religion of the sword. That's the real reason this controversy has risen in Indiana.
I grew up on the Jersey shore. Every summer morning I'd see several men combing the beach with metal detectors looking for jewelry and change lost the day before. One lost diamond earring or ring could pay for the metal detector several times over.
The Supreme Court is about to decide if the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution requires the states to redefine marriage to include same sex relationships. There are several reasons why the answer is no.
President Obama has hijacked Christianity in an attempt to defend Islam. At the National Prayer breakfast Thursday, he said, "There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith." And that there will always be people willing to "hijack religion for their own murderous ends."
Atheists like Richard Dawkins are often ardent supporters of rights to abortion, same-sex marriage, taxpayer-provided healthcare, welfare, contraceptives, and several other entitlements. But who says those are rights?
As Islamists continue to kill innocents, they provide more fuel for the oft-made atheist claim that religion is evil.

When David Limbaugh let his friend Steve know that he had doubts about Christianity, he was surprised by Steve's response. Instead of a blast of arrogant judgmentalism, Steve responded like a Christian should—with grace and evidence. What has happened since that time is told in Limbaugh's excellent new book, Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel.
Israel is the most contested piece of real estate in the world. And the most contested piece of real estate within Israel is the temple mount in the old city of Jerusalem. Nearly every Jew believes that the Muslim Dome of the Rock, which dominates that thirty-six acre site, sits on the spot of all previous Jewish Temples, including the last one destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. Many Jews and Christians believe that the temple must be and will be rebuilt on that spot. Therein lies the problem. Can you think of a faster way to start World War III?
Anyone who opposes same-sex marriage is wrong, says the "gay mafia"-the term the liberal TV personality Bill Maher gave to homosexual activists who "whack" dissenters. According to them, same sex marriage is now not only a "right," no one has the right to oppose it. This new right is so powerful it has completely wiped out the old rights that our founding fathers enshrined in our Constitution: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association.
What reasons, other than religious reasons, might someone want to keep marriage defined as only the union of one man and one woman? There are actually thousands of reasons. They are born each day. Marriage must be protected to protect children.
Is same-sex marriage really a "right"? If so, by what standard is it a right? Who said and by what authority?
What was the extent of the physical suffering Jesus endured at the crucifixion? Consider that the English word "excruciating" is from the Latin meaning "out of the crucifixion." I've found that the best way to comprehend the magnitude of the Christ's physical suffering on Good Friday is to read the following description that we've adapted from the work of medical doctor, C. Truman Davis.
