Is It Right for a Christian to Take Anti-Depressants?

A concerned Christian wrote to me asking this: "If I have the Holy Spirit, why do I need this drug? Is it ethical for a Christian to take drugs like this?"

Gambling and the Common Good

Too many of our “opponents” see us as morally-prissy Victorians who don’t want people doing “naughty” things in our presence. Let’s demolish that pretense.

Let’s Have More Worship Wars

When I insist that the rest of the congregation serve as back-up singers in my own little nostalgic hit parade of back-home Mississippi hymns, I am worshipping in the spirit all right. It’s just not the Holy Spirit. (Read more)

Let’s Have More Worship Wars

I have the worship music tastes of a seventy-five year-old woman. There I admitted it.

The Gospel in an Abortion Culture

What we often forget is the second casualty of an abortion culture: the consciences of countless men and women.

The Next Billy Graham Might Be Drunk Right Now

Whenever I start to get discouraged about the future of the church, I remember a conversation I had a few years ago with evangelical theologian Carl F. H. Henry on what would turn out to be his last visit to Southern Seminary before his death...

Let's Stop Ignoring Joseph at Christmas

His only role, it seems, is an usher—to get Mary to the stable in Bethlehem. But there’s much more to Joseph

Merry Christmas from the Family

“Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk” is not the typical opening of a Christmas carol. But in this week’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox,” we take a look at Montgomery Gentry’s version of the song, ”Merry Christmas from the Family,” a song that explores the darker side of Christmas...

Women, Stop Submitting to Men

Those of us who hold to so-called “traditional gender roles” are often assumed to believe that women should submit to men. This isn’t true.

Should I Marry a Man with Pornography Struggles?

Below is the latest “Questions and Ethics” query. Help me answer this question by telling me your thoughts in the comments. I’ll weigh in later. And remember to send me your real-life ethical dilemma to questions@russellmoore.com

Don't Adopt!

Children shatter your life-plan. Adoption certainly does. It’s worth it.

“God’s Own Fool,” by Michael Card

In today’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox” I talk with my favorite singer-songwriter, Michael Card, about his song, “God’s Own Fool.” It’s a song that’s changed me, and is constantly changing me; it’s a song that helped crucify my rationalism.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

Pat Robertson Responds

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Robertson’s comments on divorce and Alzheimer’s. More problematic, though, was Robertson’s flippant response to the abhorrent theology behind the whole issue...

John Calvin for Everybody

Calvin is too important to leave him frozen in caricature, and he’s too significant to leave him simply to his tribe of theological partisans. He offers rich insight to all in the Christian tradition, including those who consider themselves the furthest away from “Calvinism.”

An End to Trickle-Down Worship

There’s something refreshing and real about worship music that emerges in the context of a real, palpable local church.

“Beer for My Horses,” by Toby Keith and Willie Nelson

Years ago, Toby Keith asked Willie Nelson if he’d record a song with him. When he heard that the song would be called “Beer for My Horses,” Nelson—to my understanding—was sold on the spot.

The Gospel and Cruciform Fidelity

Recently, broadcaster Pat Robertson said a man should divorce his wife with Alzheimer’s in order to marry another woman. This is more than cruelty. This is a repudiation of the gospel.

Dungeons and Dragons and Debating Calvinism

Remember those Dungeons and Dragons people back in junior high school? Well, they grew up, got saved, and are now debating Calvinism, on both sides.

Who’s Afraid of a Woman President?

In light of Michele Bachmann’s candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination, some are wondering how consistent it is for Christians to elect a woman to national office when they wouldn’t vote for her to serve as pastor of a local church. The question is a good one, and is more complicated than it first appears, to both sides.
