Eros Isn’t Enough: We Need All Four Loves

In a recent opinion piece at Business Insider, Shana Lebowitz proclaimed, “Divorce isn’t a failure…In fact, it could mean your marriage was a success!” According to the relationship experts cited by Lebowitz, the goal of marriage isn’t that two people become one flesh, or create a family, or even share lifelong love.

Small Seal, Big Deal: Archaeology Confirms the Bible’s Details

No one names their son Jehoahaz. It’s just too tough to pronounce. On the other hand, most of us know a Josiah or two.

His is a very different Jesus than the one we meet in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

This, to put it mildly, didn’t go over well with some of the law school’s more “woke” students. Using talking points straight from the Southern Poverty Law Center, students protested Waggoner’s visit, calling the ADF a “homophobic, transphobic hate group.”
