It Is Our Responsibility to Teach Our Children Wisdom

There is no room for passive parents or guardians in this generation — parents and guardians who don’t want to confront the issues, who aren’t involved, who don’t discipline or who want to be their child’s best friend rather than their protector. We must commit to being parents and guardians who make a difference by imparting wisdom into the lives of our children.

Is Israel an Apartheid State?

On September 22, the UN will host a conference marking the 20th anniversary of the 2001 "World Conference on Racism in Durban." The original Durban conference was hijacked by people and a terrorist-supporting agenda rife with antisemitism and bashing Israel. So far, a number of countries are boycotting the upcoming conference: Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Hungary, Netherlands, UK and the US. The rest of the world, however, seems to think that there's no problem with the UN hosting another conference whose sole purpose is to smear Israel.

Afghanistan: Christians, We Say We Care but Have We Even Fasted and Prayed?

What’s happening in Afghanistan sends shivers down my spine and — I’m sure — yours, too. But I want to ask you: is the horrific suffering in Afghanistan affecting the way you live your life? Or is your life just carrying on as normal? Because none of us should be acting “normal” while our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan wait in dread for the Taliban to appear at our doorstep. You and I have a crucial role, one that should disrupt our “normal” lives: we need to be on our knees in prayer.

How to Love Others Well Despite Different Opinions on the COVID-19 Vaccinations

The fact is that I know and love people with a variety of resolutions and thoughts when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine. Am I incredibly grateful that people I know and love can now get back into their communities because of the amazing protectant against this deadly virus? Yes. Am I also understanding of those who, for health reasons or personal decisions, have determined to wait or decline a vaccination? Yes.

'OK Millennial': Don’t Blame the Boomers for Decline of Religion in America

Examining the data from the General Social Survey, it turns out it’s not the baby boomers who were the last vestige of a highly religious, very Christian era of American history. Instead, Generation X — born between 1965 and the early ’80s — is the last to come of age and even perpetuate an overwhelmingly Christian and largely devout religious landscape in terms of church attendance and beliefs about God.

Don’t Confuse Military Action with the Mission of God

Let me be clear: It is never appropriate to take the mission of God in Scripture and apply it to the American military, the American dream or the American way of life. They are not interchangeable. The kingdom of God and earthly kingdoms are not one and the same, nor does the kingdom of God depend on the success of earthly governments, movements, campaigns or wars.

Amid the Fall of Afghanistan, We Need to Remind Our Troops: Thank You, Job Well Done

Today we will scribble words in our diaries to mark one of the most heartbreaking and consequential moments in American foreign policy, the wholesale withdrawal of American troops, which has led to the Taliban takeover of the middle eastern nation. Amid this tragedy, we must still thank the American soldiers who have risked, and in some cases lost, their lives during this long war on terror.
