Responding to Unfair Blame: Lessons from Nero and the Great Fire of Rome

Responding to Unfair Blame: Lessons from Nero and the Great Fire of Rome

Today, there is a clear and growing undercurrent of hostility toward Christians that often resembles the tropes used in ancient days.

So how do we respond?

Have Scientists Discovered Hell?

Have Scientists Discovered Hell?

 As we noted yesterday, God cannot encourage idolatry lest he participate in it and reward that which harms us. By contrast, when we seek God, “O LORD, you will ordain peace for us, for you have indeed done for us all our works” (v. 12).

Tony Evans Says America Is Facing God's Judgment Because Christians Are Failing to Represent God's Kingdom

Tony Evans Says America Is Facing God's Judgment Because Christians Are Failing to Represent God's Kingdom

In an interview with The Christian Post, Pastor Tony Evans asserted that America is now facing God's judgment because of "the failure of the Church to be the people of God that represents His Kingdom more than we represent the nation."

America Needs to Turn Back to God

America Needs to Turn Back to God

The upward trend of active shooter incidents in America since Columbine is alarming. What in the world is going on? In short, our nation has rejected God, and we are reaping the whirlwind. Just as water rapidly eroded the banks of the mighty Colorado River and created a vast Grand Canyon, America’s current belief system (relativism) has eroded her foundation and created a moral void.

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.

How Should Christians Respond to the Escalating Normalization of Immorality in Our Society?

Our culture is normalizing immorality on a level unprecedented in American history. As a result, followers of Jesus need to become cultural missionaries on a level of transformative urgency and significance. But we must recognize sin as sin and refuse the allure of the popular or we will lose our credibility and betray our Lord.

Woe to Those Who Call Evil Good

Woe to Those Who Call Evil Good

It's been said that not even Sodom and Gomorrah reached the level of decadence that we see today in America. Praise God for the remnant and the churches that intercede. In my opinion, they are the only thing keeping God's judgment at bay.

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.
