  • Can you laugh at your enemies and love them? Rules for Christian mockery

    Can you laugh at your enemies and love them? Rules for Christian mockery

    Sadly, Christians are often among those engaging in bad-faith speech on Twitter, including against one another. We should punch up, never down. Mockery is a tool to expose evil and folly in powerful places, not for grinding down the weak.

  • Dads change with fatherhood

    Dads change with fatherhood

    Recent discoveries have suggested that dedicated fathers, like dedicated mothers, undergo dramatic hormonal and neurological shifts upon the arrival of a baby.

  • Planned Parenthood’s new revenue stream is not a new direction

    Planned Parenthood’s new revenue stream is not a new direction

    Planned Parenthood has now jumped into this business with both feet. On its website, the organization claims that if a child or young adult is “insistent, consistent, and persistent” about their trans identity, then they should be medically “affirmed.”

  • Another weak link in evolutionary theory

    Another weak link in evolutionary theory

    Today, however, discoveries in molecular biology have complicated that conclusion. In fact, a new paper poses one of the strongest challenges yet to the idea that all life shares common chemistry.

  • The slippery slope of pedophilia and 'born gay'

    The slippery slope of pedophilia and 'born gay'

    Slippery slopes are considered logical fallacies because they don’t have to happen. However, they often do happen. If our society maintains the logic that desires determine identity and therefore justify behaviors, then more deviant behaviors will eventually become acceptable.

    Passing on the faith: Good news and bad news

    One clear lesson is how seriously parents must take their role as disciple-makers. It’s a common instinct to lean away from spiritual conversations, especially with teens and young adults who seem to have grown uninterested or annoyed by them.

  • Gratitude is good for you

    Gratitude is good for you

    God deserves our final gratitude…not the universe or the government or our “inner light.” Even the good gifts of other people’s time and help and love point, ultimately, to God. And, of course, God doesn’t owe us any of these good gifts, nor could we ever deserve them.

  • Why the greatest gift the Church can give us right now is forgiveness

    Why the greatest gift the Church can give us right now is forgiveness

    Increasingly it is victimhood status, not God’s mercy or Christ’s imputation, that is seen as the source of our righteousness. As a result, our culture values fragility over strength, and embellishes a constant good-versus-evil conflict, even over the smallest of issues.

  • When inclusivity becomes incoherence

    When inclusivity becomes incoherence

    All attempts at inclusion, without the larger context of a unifying shared humanity, lead to incoherence. But this incoherence is an opportunity for Christians to offer a better vision of our purpose, our value, our gendered bodies, and our sexuality. In a culture running out of colors and letters, it’s a vision that is badly needed.

  • How dads change with fatherhood

    How dads change with fatherhood

    Male bodies respond to the call to nurture in their own way. This supports the claim that Dr. Ryan T. Anderson often makes, that there’s really no such thing as parenting; there’s only mothering and fathering.
