What Martin Luther King Can Teach Us About Preaching

In the Bible gospel preaching never left off with condemnation. That the gospel is really good news for us.

What’s at Stake with Internet Pornography

There’s a situation in counseling I come across all too often: a couple will typically tell me first about how stressful their lives are. But usually, if we talk long enough about their fracturing marriage, there is a sense that something else is afoot.

Racial Justice and the Godness of God

The gospel reclaims the dignity of humanity and the lordship of God. It is a gospel that presents us with a brother who puts the lie to any claim to racial superiority as he takes on the glory and limits of our common humanity in Adam.

How Should You Explain the Same-Sex Marriage Debate to Your Children?

How does one teach the controversy, without exposing one’s children to more than they can handle?

How Should Same-Sex Marriage Change the Church’s Witness?

Same-sex marriage is headed for your community. This is no time for fear or outrage or politicizing. It’s a time for forgiven sinners, like us, to do what the people of Christ have always done. It’s time for us to point beyond our family values and our culture wars to the cross of Christ.

Why Calvinists and Arminians Can Unite for Religious Liberty

We all believe in God’s sovereignty and we all believe in human freedom, though we differ on the qualifications of both. But when the government tries to be the ultimate sovereign, or to coerce free consciences, we know to stand against that, and for another kingdom, together.

Don Draper Meets Abraham Kuyper

As a theologian, a church leader, a newspaperman, and an elected official who had served in Parliament and as Prime Minister, Kuyper had a wide-angled lens on cultural forces.

Is Your Church Ready for the Marriage Revolution?

The Supreme Court of the United States is set to hand down a set of decisions this summer that could advance a cultural and political shift in the way marriage is defined in this country. Is your church ready for this?

Remember the Infertile Too

What if pastors set aside time in the church service to pray for children for the infertile? The Proverbs 31 woman warrants attention, but what about the 1Samuel 1 woman?

Do You Want to Be a Burden to Your Children?

I love being the answer to problems. But when I need other people, I am reminded that I am not alone. I am not the solution. I am not the Messiah.

What Should We Do with Our Frozen Embryos?

Here's my response to a question I received from "A Stressed Dad.'

Kermit Gosnell and the Gospel

Yesterday I was typing the name “Kermit Gosnell,” and my phone auto-corrected the name to “gospel.” I shuddered momentarily.

The Insomnia of Jesus

The next time you find yourself unable to sleep due to worry, ask whether you’re in the Galilee waters or the Gethsemane garden. Ask yourself whether your wakefulness is of the weakening flesh or the awakening Spirit.

Why Christians Should Read Fiction

I’ve found that most people who tell me that fiction is a waste of time are folks who seem to hold to a kind of sola cerebra vision of the Christian life that just doesn’t square with the Bible.

Why Jack the Giant-Slayer Misses the Mark

Jack now has his turn at the silver screen, with the film “Jack the Giant-Slayer,” in theaters now. I saw it, and was disappointed. Here’s why.

Should a Christian Dentist Fire His Too-Hot Hygienist?

Jesus said “If your eye offends you, gouge it out.” He didn’t say “If you find your neighbor’s eyes are too sexy, gouge them out.” It isn’t a just society when women are hired only if they meet certain standards of “sexiness.”

Why Johnny Cash Still Matters

February 26 would have been Johnny Cash’s 81st birthday. Unlike many celebrities whose name dies out with the obituaries of their fan base, Cash continues to matter. And I think it matters that we understand why.

Why the Afterlife Bores Us

I have long suspected that many Christians dread not just death but heaven. We won’t admit that, of course.

With Pope Benedict XVI's shocking resignation this morning, evangelical Christians might be tempted to see this the way a college football fan might view the departure of his rival team's head coach. But the global stakes are much, much higher.

Why Rosa Parks (Still) Matters

Rosa Parks’ example is about the future as much as the past. And Christians especially ought to reflect on what Rosa Parks’ civil disobedience reminds us about our life together in society.
