While at Taylor, Kasey served in various ministry roles on campus and was active in student government. He has also worked briefly in politics, serving as an intern in the US Senate in Washington, DC.
For Christians, selectively holding our political and prospective leaders to high moral standards reveals in us an unsettling lack of faith.
There are too many myths being propagated about the Supreme Court case involving Jack Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop. It's time to set the record straight.
Prayer, it seems, is no longer a politically acceptable response to tragedy. Instead, we're being told to put our trust in something else.
Historian Philip Schaff writes that next to the beginning of Christianity, the Reformation was "the greatest event in history." That may be hyperbole, but not by much.
The abortion industry has long billed itself as a champion of women's rights. But abortion is being used right now to keep millions of women from participating in life, at all.
There are many good public schools and many dedicated Christian teachers in those schools who deserve our support. But it's also clear that current trends don't bode well for public education in America. So perhaps it's time for the historic Christian commitment to creativity in education to make a comeback.
Who is Jesus? It's a foundational question, and one many Christians struggle to answer.
The curtain is being lifted on sexual predation. That's good. And it reveals why we cannot abandon Christianity's liberating vision of human sexuality. With the exception of a few highborn women, Roman women were often treated worse than Roman cattle. Even upper-class women were little more than possessions. Into this world came Christianity.
Postmodernism is a snake eating its own tail. It is self-contradictory. It invokes ideas such as justice, fairness, and tolerance while at the same time denying that there are any universal values, largely because there is no way to discern those values.
A definitively more substantial step was taken by the Trump administration to protect the rights of conscience. And once again, I'm grateful. And yet again, I offer a reminder that at most, this is a temporary reprieve, not a victory.
