While reading Dan Brown's book "Origin," I kept asking myself, "What happened to Dan Brown as a child? There was something that took place that profoundly influenced him against 'traditional religious faith.' What was it?"
In every generation, the Church takes some steps forward and some steps backward. ... What are some critical, fundamental areas that need reformation today?
Now, had I not been speaking in Germany this past weekend, I probably would not have thought of comparing Luther to Trump. But while conversing with some leaders about the strengths and weaknesses of Luther, I immediately thought of the strengths and weaknesses of Trump.
As expected, the response to my article "Since When Did Jesus Get Connected to Guns?" was fast and furious, especially from those who failed to read the article.
Since when did the gospel become associated with guns? Since when did the Christian faith become linked to the right to bear arms?
It's easy to be partisan and to live in an echo chamber of affirmation. It's easy to preach to the choir and be invigorated by the choir's hearty "Amen." But are we really searching out these issues?
Every so often, there is a moment of sanity that pushes back against transgender activism in the sports world, although the reaction to the sane decision is often anything but sane.
Yes, as bizarre as it seems, Gen. Kelly was accused of making a racist comment when he referred to Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson as an "empty barrel" for her attack on President Trump's call to a Gold Star widow.
In light of the flood of allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the left's extreme reaction to Vice President Pence's personal morality guidelines now seems even more absurd. Mothers and fathers of America, who would you rather have your daughters work for, Weinstein or Pence?
A headline on the conservative, RedState website announces, "Trump's Cheap 'Merry Christmas' Christianity Continues To Sway Evangelicals." Is this true?
Please help me to understand something. I'm not a Muslim, but I can speak about Islam. I'm not gay, but I can address LGBT issues. I'm not an atheist, but I can address atheism. Yet when I weigh in constructively on racial issues in America, I'm told I have no right to speak or, worse still, I'm accused of racism. Why is that?
My purpose is to confront the larger hypocrisy of Hollywood, an industry that has made billions of dollars selling sex, an industry that encourages all kinds of sexploitation.
Why did I agree to speak a conference that I have blasted in the past for being anti-Zionistic and perhaps even anti-Semitic? Why I am participating in an event that has been used to propagate what I have branded "a deadly anti-Israel theological error"? (I meant the word "deadly" quite literally.)
Colin Kaepernick said his protest was all about the flag. The NFL Players Union, which supports the players' right to kneel, stated that the protests are not about the flag.
Transgender activism will never succeed in reshaping our society for one simple reason: It is not natural. Biological differences are too deeply instilled in the human race. Male-female distinctives are too obvious and real. It is futile to declare war on gender.
If Hugh Hefner was the poster boy of the sexual revolution, Alfred Kinsey was the father of the revolution. But that is not the only thing that joins these men together.
Tonight is TV night, and everyone is ready to enjoy "Ozzie and Harriet" and "Leave It to Beaver." You doze off and when you wake up a few minutes later, everything has changed. Instead of the smiling Cleaver family, it's a nude couple going on their first date together. You change the channel and find two men making out passionately while taking off each other's clothes. You click once more, and this time it's two young moms with their daughters—they're both 16 and unmarried—and their babies were born out of wedlock.
There's never a dull moment in our dealings with YouTube. In the latest twist, our video commentary on "What God Is Saying through the Vegas Massacre" has been age-restricted, deemed not suitable for viewers under 18. Really?
King wrote an article, arguing that had the shooter been an immigrant and/or a Muslim, the massacre would have been dubbed an act of terror. But because the shooter was white and enjoyed white privilege, his whiteness prevented him from being labeled a terrorist. Claims like this are as unhelpful as they are inaccurate.
A house divided against itself cannot stand. This is a message America needs to hear again. We are literally tearing ourselves apart. And so, rather than the Vegas massacre drawing us together, it is being politicized and propagandized, often in the most vulgar ways. Is there no respect for the dead and grieving?
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, herself a shooting victim, said, "All we're hearing is thoughts and prayers. Thoughts and prayers are important. They are not enough. Your thoughts and prayers aren't going to stop the next shooting." Is he right? Yes and no.
America is really sick — as in really, really sick. That's why some conservative preachers and pundits believe we have passed the point of no return. Yet there are two words that give me hope, and I want to share that hope with you.
America is reeling again. Families have been ripped apart and individual lives have been torn apart. One day we're reeling from devastating hurricanes, the next day we're torn apart by racial divisions, the next day we're ripped apart by the worst mass shooting in our history. The pain is palpable, the shock tangible. Can America still be healed?
For years we've been told not to be confrontational and not to address controversial moral issues lest we offend the world and drive away the lost. And so, in the name of wisdom, a spirit of compromise has entered our pulpits, and we sound more like spiritual politicians than truth-telling shepherds.
Dear NFL Athletes, As a fan rather than a critic, may I offer a suggestion to you regarding the national anthem? it seems like the league can get very political on some fronts. And who is affected by this? You and the fans. This is not fair and this is not right.
