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.

Let Dead Terrorist Groups Lie

Let Dead Terrorist Groups Lie

There have been recent reports that the Biden administration is planning to remove five groups from the U.S.' foreign terrorist blacklist. Each of these groups is now considered defunct. But it's strange that if they are defunct anyway, why anyone would worry about delisting them. It's better to let dead terror groups lie.

Should Russian Art Get Cancelled?

Should Russian Art Get Cancelled?

According to Simon Morrison in a recent The Washington Post article, Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine has prompted a huge global push to disavow all things Russian. And while some of these measures are certainly warranted, others are not so clear. So, what should be done with Russian art?

Why We Don't Trust Our Government

Why We Don't Trust Our Government

Humans were created to need our Creator and each other. As a result, we each feel an innate need to be loved and to love, to be served and to serve, to be trusted and to trust. In a day when such trust is in short supply, Christians have a providential opportunity to demonstrate the relevance of our faith in action. When we follow Jesus’ example by washing the feet of those we lead (John 13:1-13), we can then inspire them to “wash one another’s feet” (v. 14).

With New Anti-Abortion Laws Passing, Is the Church Prepared?

The Church has remained mostly on the sidelines of the abortion issue in fear of being seen as “too political.” When they do decide to “get involved,” their involvement, ironically, is primarily political. Christians ought not to see the life issue through a political lens but through a discipleship lens. Instead, Christians must begin to recognize discipleship as a critical tool in the fight to end abortion, because if we are to truly “end abortion,” the long-term support and transformational power of discipleship are irreplaceable.

Is the Future of Charitable Donation at Risk?

Is the Future of Charitable Donation at Risk?

An upstart group called “Unmasking Fidelity” is trying to expose conservative donors to harassment by demanding the nation’s largest grant-maker, Fidelity Charitable, publicly reveal contributions to ten key organizations. These include the Family Research Council, Turning Point USA, and Alliance Defending Freedom, which Unmasking Fidelity absurdly calls “white supremacist” and “fascist.”

The Danger of Doing Something Rather Than the Right Thing

The Danger of Doing Something Rather Than the Right Thing

Tragedies have a way of inspiring us to action. Whether it’s a natural disaster, freak accident, or an act of terrorism, we routinely see people get united and energized around perceived solutions in a way that cuts through the reservations that often hinder change. Unfortunately, that impulse to do something often means people act without thinking about the long-term consequences of their decisions.

Answering Abortion Assertions: Abortion Saves Women's Lives?

Answering Abortion Assertions: Abortion Saves Women's Lives?

Last week at our annual Wilberforce Weekend conference, we held a pre-event on Thursday evening to discuss what it means to prepare for a post-Roe future. The presentations were exceptional across the board. Today, I want you to hear from my friend Stephanie Gray Connors. She responded throughout the evening to various slogans used in our culture to promote abortion. Here’s one of the short talks she gave in response to the slogan, “legal abortion saves women’s lives.”
