Turning the Lion Loose

Charles Spurgeon once said, "Truth is like a lion. Who ever heard of defending a lion? Just turn it loose and it will defend itself." A few years back, I learned just how right the 19th-century preacher was.

Before I die

“Before I die I want to ______.” How would you fill in the blank? It’s a haunting question, one that challenges everyone who passes by one of the hundreds of walls from Beijing to Brooklyn emblazoned with that hanging statement.

The Multiverse: a theory of desperation

The notion that nothing became everything, instantly, is magic, not science; that it happened (or is happening) ad infinitum is more befitting sci-fi than sci-fact.

How Should Churches Receive Same-sex Couples?

That’s the question that occurred to me after viewing the trailer for “Seventh-Gay Adventists,” a documentary about homosexuals in the church. The answer I gave on a Facebook page promoting the film was as follows...

Stories of Things Unseen

From the infinitesimal to the infinite, the design and structure of nature point inexorably to the wonders of things unseen.

How Will Your Church Adjust to Gay Couples?

Have you thought about it? You better, because it's a question your church will face, sooner or later...

There are No True Agnostics

While claiming to order their lives according to fact , not faith...what the agnostic doesn't realize, however, or willfully ignores, is that he is just as much a person of faith as those he tries to distance himself from. It begins with what he really knows...

The Idol of Church Growth

Time to re-think our notions about church growth...

The De-Christianization of America

The warning light went on in America years ago, but we weren't paying attention.

Why Christian Supporters of Same-Sex 'Marriage' Are Wrong

Or why Jesus would not bake a gay wedding cake.

The High Costs of Living Together

It is a tragic outcome of our meet-up, hook-up, shack-up culture that a woman who "doesn't" is at a competitive disadvantage with women who "do." Indeed, the prospect of being edged out of the romance market has quelled the qualms of many a woman who, in a prior time, could have successfully held out for a ceremony, a ring, or, at least, a verbal commitment.

How Is Your Spiritual Health?

If pressed, would you say that you are spiritually healthy, sick, on life support, or a dead men walking? Based on what vital sign(s)?

What the Trinity Says about God, and Us

"Few would deny that the Trinity is one of the most (if not the most) important of all the doctrines of the Christian faith, and also one of the most misunderstood... it is regrettable, because no other doctrine tells us more about God and ourselves..."

ALERT: The Walking Dead Are Among Us!

It should strike us as more than coincidental that the rise in rampage killings began when the vapors of nihilism wafted out of coffee houses and college lecture halls to cover the cultural landscape, from sea to shining sea.

Have We Reached the End of Science?

In a rare, unguarded moment, physicist Lawrence Krauss confided, "I worry whether we've come to the limits of empirical science.” His concern is well founded...

As the Season draws upon us...

In the manner of Screwtape: "Who could have predicted from the celebration’s modest beginnings that churchgoers would eventually spend more on Christmas gifts than they tithe all year to their churches, and over twice as much as they give to religious nonprofit organizations? Imagine, Swillpit, if those funds were used to support missions and help the needy. Why, there’s no telling how much trouble that would cause us!...

Breaking the Spell of Darwinism

When evolutionism’s front man, Richard Dawkins, wrote, “Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist,” he grossly overstated his case. If atheism is to be more than wish fulfillment for folks troubled by what Thomas Nagel calls “the cosmic authority problem,” it must be based on a materialistic narrative that accounts for chemical evolution and biological evolution...

Government: How Big is Too Big?

It seems that the Founders understood what our modern leaders have forgotten, or dismissed: In the area of compassion, services to the needy are best administered by those closest to the problem—that is, local and regional organizations, like churches, faith-based institutions, civic groups, and volunteer associations.

Pro-Life Confliction

If you wonder why the pro-life movement has had such marginal success over the last 40 years...

Crossing the Gay 'Marriage' Rubicon

Now that the Supreme Court ruling provides the legal basis to overturn marriage laws in every state, what are Christians to do?
