I don’t ever recall seeing evangelicals so divided about a film. By and large, we stick together.

Words seem insufficient when discussing topics like suicide and mental illness. The grief they produce is not something that can be “fixed” with casual prayer or platitudes.
Over the weekend, I did what many people who have been weighing in on the movie Noah had yet to even do: I saw the movie.
Does the unfinished state of a great artistic project negate the parts that are already finished and beautiful?
Is Paul really communicating that Christians are bound to struggle—that we should just acknowledge our weakness and move on? If Romans 7:14–25 reflects Paul’s fight and failure with sin, the rest of the letter doesn’t make much sense.
I was never guaranteed perfection. I was, however, guaranteed a Carpenter to help pick up the pieces of my fence.
Can that person really be a Christian and continue in sin like that? On second thought, how do I know if I am really saved?
Now that Noah has hit theaters, Christian leaders are just as divided on the film. Some say it is a feast for the eyes and mind, and others call it an attack on Scripture.
The problem is not the self-portrait. The problem is our sin nature. The problem is our self-centeredness.
Undoubtedly Noah’s journey has been marked with controversy. Yet with these events in mind, I can tell you that I hope you will go see this film.
This issue before the Court: can for-profit corporations, citing religious objections, refuse some or potentially all contraceptive services in health plans offered to employees?
You’d think my trickiest mothering season would've been transitioning to a single mom. And yet, that was not the toughest stretch.
Certain types of people won’t shut up and won’t put up. I call them spiritual nitpickers.
I'd read the forwarded emails; I expected a professor to challenge my faith in God with a piece of chalk...

World Vision just reversed its stand on same-sex marriage. I believe the Lord is pleased with the board's decision, and with the way it was communicated with the world.
Can we just stop it with the “man crush” thing? And while we’re at it, let’s stop the “bromance” thing, the getting-in-touch-with-your-feminine-side thing, and any other thing that blurs the lines between the sexes, gender identity, and/or heterosexuality vs. homosexuality.
It’s easier to gather with others like ourselves. But Christians who identify in Christ rather than in our commonalities experience the beauty of Christian love that yields racial unity.

No matter how messy your marriage is, it can significantly improve in 10 days if you dedicate yourself to changing the environment.
