Must We Pray for Our Enemies?

How important is it that we pray for those whom we know do, or have, meant us harm?

Midnight in Paris and the Pull of Nostalgia

If the opening chapters of the Book of Ecclesiastes were to take on flesh, the result would be something like Woody Allen. And now the angst-ridden filmmaker is back with a new movie, Midnight in Paris.

Not Guilty vs. Innocent

This could be one of the more opportune theological teaching moments of our day.

Being the Church When Empires Fall (Part 2 of 2)

A pressing concern for us today is that unlike our first and second-century brothers and sisters, we all-too-often appear similar to the surrounding culture. This is especially true among the forthcoming generation. As Christianity Today reported more than seven years ago, “Specific studies of sexual trends among Christian teens have been limited, but all indications are that, on average, there is little difference between their sexual behavior and that of non-Christian youths.”

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

This goes on the top shelf as the best book I’ve read this year.

The Life That Is Truly Life

Is life nothing more than the sum total of our personal experiences? Is there no higher purpose to human existence than to set goals, make them, and rest in the afterglow of our successes? Those are questions that haunt the human soul.

The Fall of Empires

The famous historian, Arnold J. Toynbee points out that civilizations sank owing to either nationalism, militarism or the tyranny of a despotic minority. It seems we are "sinking" as a “despotic minority” redefines human biology and the natural family in its quest to validate homosexual behavior through "marriage."

You’ve heard of the “seven last words of the church” before, haven’t you? If not, here they are, tongue firmly in cheek: “We’ve never done it that way before.”

An Open Letter To Mr. Grace-Loving Antinomian

You puzzle me. How can you think about all that Christ has done for you, about your Father’s steadfast, immeasurable, extravagantly generous love and still live the way you do? Have you never considered how He labored day-after-day in His home, obeying His parents, loving His brothers and sisters so that you could be counted righteous in the sight of His Father?
