North Korea and the God Factor

Are we on the edge of a nuclear war, as some near-hysterical pundits claim? Will Kim Jong Un act foolishly, wreaking havoc on Japan and S. Korea, only to suffer a devastating response from America? What is that demented dictator thinking? The biggest question of all though is "What is God doing in the midst of this?"

Don't Let Them Silence Us!

Major players on the left are trying to silence many of us on the right. Our views, we are told, belong to a bygone, bigoted era and do not deserve a hearing. Our views, in short, must be suppressed and silenced, and those who dissent will be punished.

Christian Schools That Cave to Culture Will Lose Their Souls

Time and again in the Gospels, Jesus warned His listeners, "For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it" (Matt. 16:25). This applies directly to our Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries. If we try to "save our lives" by capitulating to worldly standards, we will "lose our lives" in the process.

New DNA Discoveries Prove the Bible Accurate, Despite What Headlines Claim

There was a spate of headlines last week claiming that new scientific discoveries disproved the historical narrative of the Bible. Headlines included, "DNA vs the Bible: Israelites did not wipe out the Canaanites" and "Study disproves the Bible's suggestion that the ancient Canaanites were wiped out."

What the Hiring of Anthony Scaramucci Tells Us About President Trump

Who is the real Donald Trump? If you talk with evangelical leaders who have met with him, they will tell you how humble and gracious he is and how deeply he embraces their values. If you look at some of his public statements or judge him based on his hiring of Anthony Scaramucci, you might come to a very different conclusion. How do we sort this out?

God Is Speaking to Us Through Charlie Gard

In these days when children are often an afterthought (if not an inconvenience), when leftists fight vigorously for the "right" to abort their babies, and while ethicists argue that infants suffering outside the womb should be euthanized, the devotion of Charlie's mom and dad reminds us of the depth of a parent's love.

Don't Misgender Your Pet!

This is not a satire. I am not spoofing you. What I'm telling you is the truth. A radical feminist website is warning all of you who are pet owners not to misgender your pets. You could hurt them without knowing it! I am not making this up.

When the Church Ruled by the Sword

Unfortunately, through much of Christian history, the Church has departed from the message and example of Jesus, also ruling by the sword. Honesty compels me to tell this part of the story as well.

When Loving God Conflicts With Loving Our Neighbor

Many followers of Jesus today are deeply conflicted over the issue of homosexuality, knowing that the Word clearly prohibits homosexual practice and defines marriage as the lifelong union of a man and woman, yet they have friends or family members who identify as gay, and these are people whom they dearly love and do not want to hurt.
