'The Year of Our Lord' - Diploma Trouble in Texas

The controversy at Trinity University tells us so much about the loss of Christian conviction in colleges and universities, the insanity of secular revisionism, and the contradictions of Muslim students who are offended by the words "the year of our Lord," but seem perfectly happy to have the name "Trinity University" printed in bold on their diplomas.

When Adoption Fails, the Gospel is Denied

The wonder of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is this — not one of us is worthy of adoption. In our sinfulness, not one of us has any claim on the Father's love, much less a right to adoption.

Religion News Service [RNS] reports that many pastors in the nation's capital are struggling with just how they can go about the wedding of same-sex couples now that gay marriage is legal in the District of Columbia.

'This is Life We're Talking About'

Ground Zero for the sanctity of human life is now the U.S. House of Representatives, where the Democratic leadership is pulling all the levers to come up with the 216 votes necessary to pass the Obama health care bill.

Falling on Deaf Ears?

Indeed, in many churches there is very little reading of the Bible in worship, and sermons are marked by attention to the congregation's concerns - not by an adequate attention to the biblical text.

Tiger Woods' Buddhist Confession

The public confession made by Tiger Woods and watched by millions of viewers last Friday was, in the main, much like the confessions made by others, ranging from former President Bill Clinton to evangelist Jimmy Swaggart.
