“Man in Black” and “Hurt,” by Johnny Cash

A growing cadre of kids out there are frankly bored by Lady Gaga’s latest attempt to shock American sensibilities. What they are shocked by instead is this gravelly-voiced man, telling them, from beyond the grave, what they already suspect—the shallow kingdoms of this age are headed for a stunning collapse.

Sinful Means to a Glorious End

Though it's popular to say, “Never criticize any method that God is blessing,” I am convinced that one of the greatest but most subtle spiritual dangers Christians face is pragmatism.

Is Tim Tebow a Blasphemer?

Christians Get Depressed Too

Too many people have been taught that Christians—true Christians, good Christians, real Christians—don’t get depressed or that depression is always the outworking of serious sin.

Transforming the Culture

We wring our hands over government corruption, corporate greed, and the breakdown of the family, but what’s to be done? How do we go about uprighting our morally capsized culture?

The Church's Moment in the Unraveling of the West

I do not think it too strong or sensational to say that we are witnessing the collapse of Western civilization. Across the Western world, the fruits of apostasy and secularism are manifesting themselves in overwhelmingly destructive ways. In essence, we in the West are reaping precisely what we have sown. Mankind cannot construct a world devoid of subservience to God and hope to prosper.

Top Five Ways to Keep Communicating with Your Teenager

One of the biggest complaints from parents and teenagers alike is that there is often little or no communication between the two groups. Perhaps you’re like one discouraged mom who said to me, “I’ve tried to talk with my daughter but she just shuts me down.

'The Code' in the Christian Blogosphere

Rumor has it that there is a moral code in professional hockey that guides how players hit each other or when they fight. Supposedly everyone knows it and it is universally seen as “dirty pool” when someone breaks this code. However, whether the code actually exists is a matter of debate. Is there such a code in the Christian blogosphere?

"What is Baptism?"

A new Christian writes to ask about the nature and purpose of baptism.

You’re Free To Stay Put

Why You Should Read Barry's novel: "Hannah Coulter"

Some think that fiction is wrong because it’s “not true.” Hardly! I read more fiction than I do non-fiction, if you exempt the Bible from consideration, and I consider it, most often, truer than anything in the world.

Pray Without Ceasing

Should we be surprised that the Lord chose to do such great things through William Carey when he had such a prayer warrior pleading with the Lord for his work?

A Desperate Man's Desperate Prayer

To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, “Nothing clears the mind like the certain knowledge that you will be shot in the morning."
