Better Rules for Sex?

Better Rules for Sex?

It’s time to admit that the idea that consent could adequately govern human sexuality has failed. Consent may be the barest of moral necessities, but it cannot govern something as powerful as sex, especially when sex has been untethered from its purpose, design, and any other moral restraint.

The Break Down of the Family Has Lead to a Lack of Morality

The Break Down of the Family Has Lead to a Lack of Morality

We are raising a generation that lacks male role models. The family has broken down. These kids aren’t learning character. Where does character come from? It comes from habits that you learn in the family first. That’s the first basic structure that Aristotle once said is the first school of human instruction. It comes from associations that you become part of, where you find your identity—you find role models and other people. That’s how character forms.  

The Weight of Culture and Our Strange New World

The Weight of Culture and Our Strange New World

Strange New World is more than a Reader’s Digest version of Dr. Carl Trueman's Rise and Triumph. It is a book to be carefully studied, especially by Christians committed to engaging this cultural moment with the truth and love of Christ. Increasingly, the battles over gender, sexuality, and selfhood are being fought in more areas of our lives: not just across political aisles or in courtrooms, but across dinner tables, classrooms, and social media feeds. Sometimes, those closest to us have radically different views of what human flourishing looks like, and these relationships can quickly become vulnerable, even volatile.

What Church Is Really Like

What Church Is Really Like

In our world, special social status is awarded to people perceived as victims. Thus, testimonies of victimization—both inside the Church and out—get louder play. Stories of everyday faithfulness, sacrifice, and ministry seem boring. And, in a secular culture increasingly hostile to Christianity, one person’s negative experience at church or disdain for Christianity in general will be much better received and more readily believed than the opposite testimony, even if that one person’s perception is false, or at least uncommon. Simply put, a lot of people just don’t want to like the Church.

Is This Our Last Stand – Our Last Chance?

Is This Our Last Stand – Our Last Chance?

Is it our last stand—our last chance? Who knows? I'll let God answer that question, but as for me and my house and our church, we will serve the Lord and fight the good fight of faith. We will fuel the flames of revival. We will till the soil of our heart and prepare for the downpour of the Spirit. We will continue praying that God would rend the heavens, come down, and strengthen His church. When it's over, I want to be found lying exhausted on the battlefield rather than running in fear. How about you? If this is our last stand, will you finish strong?
