What’s a Christian Response to the New Marriage Culture?


After the Obergfell decision this past year, Christians have tried to cope with a new definition of marriage. What does this new definition mean for church Marriage Retreats? for childcare? or for conversations in youth groups about sexual intercourse?

Who Is Persecuting Palestinian Christians?


No one needs to ponder whether Christians in Palestinian territories are suffering terribly. They are. Who’s to blame? There are very strong voices in the media and in political circles who point out that Israel is the country doing all the killing. Sure, Hamas is firing hundreds of missiles into Israel, but they don’t end... Continue Reading →

Why Hobby Lobby Decision Matters for All American


The following article was originally POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2012.  I Re-post it now because a decision from the Supreme Court is imminent: There are two major stories whose trajectories are coalescing toward a permanent loss of religious liberty in the United States. The first story is the on-going saga known affectionately as Obamacare. The second... Continue Reading →

Imagine Living as a Christian in Nigeria


Just this past weekend, my family and I hosted a World Cup party. About 25 people crowded into my living room to enjoy the epic battle in which the U.S. Men’s National team fought against the highly-touted, Ronaldo-led squad from Portugal. Yes, the last-second cross from Ronaldo to the head of Varela sent shockwaves down... Continue Reading →

Why Christians Must Fight for Religious Liberty in America


Freedom, though given freely by God, isn’t offered freely by Man. It must be fought for and won, sometimes through reasoned debate and cool persuasion, other times through battles with swords or guns. Tyranny is always lurking, scheming to usurp individual liberty. This is as true in America as it is anywhere. I am thankful... Continue Reading →

Christians Should Be Politically Active


  In the wake of the Kermit Gosnell "Slaughter-gate" trial (and the appalling disinterest of many), there is a need for Christians to be reminded of our function as a pillar and support of the truth--a reminder of our calling to be salt and light in an otherwise dead and listless world.  The post below...

The Most Mistreated Minority in the World Is …


Back in November, I wrote a blog post about German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in which it was noted that Merkel was taking a great deal of heat for claiming that Christians are the most persecuted group in the world.  That is not a headline that sells in America, as many folks still love to decry...

Abortion and the Death Penalty: Is There Any Consistency to a Pro-Life Position?


  The charge is often leveled that Pro-life Christians are inconsistent in their position on protecting the sanctity of human life. On the one hand, Pro-lifers are quick to pronounce a "fetus" a human life worthy of protection, while, on the other hand, they will pronounce a murderer worthy of death and say that the...

Biblical Morality–A Crime Against Humanity?


  Current events did not take long to prove Dr. Mohler correct in his assertion yesterday that gay rights has become the centerpiece of a new moral "McCarthyism." Dr. Mohler's commentary concerning "The Giglio Imbroglio" has proved prescient. Today, news has come out that an American pastor is being sued for "crimes against humanity" because...

Is There Hope for Russian Adoptions? Tears and Heaven


On December 28, 2012, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a life-wrecking edict to stop Russian adoptions. The story below is my attempt to capture the agony and offer some hope.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, and He will exalt you at the proper time—so says the Apostle Peter (1 Peter 5:6).  And time has proved the Scriptures true over and over again.

Good Work Is Never Vain


God promises us triumph for the Christian (1 Corinthians 15). There is a victory already won (even if not fully realized) for all those who are alive in Christ. One of the great promises which attends this victory of Christ is implicit in 1 Corinthians 15:58: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding... Continue Reading →
