Viewing Our Opponents as Enemies Will Only Divide Us Further

Viewing Our Opponents as Enemies Will Only Divide Us Further

As Author Berk Decker notes in his book You’ve Got to Be Believed to Be Heard, “people buy on emotion and justify with fact.” The more believable, likable, and relevant we seem to people, the more effective our engagement with them. However, I fear that many of us are pursuing the opposite strategy with the “culture wars” of our day. In our passion for declaring and defending biblical truth, we are tempted to see our opponents as our enemies. When we attack them and they respond in kind, our “side” rewards our passion and applauds our courage. But are lost people attracted by such antagonism or repelled by it?

Why Flag Day Is as Important as July 4th

Why Flag Day Is as Important as July 4th

While July 4th celebrates our declaration of independence from tyranny and Memorial Day honors those who have given their lives to preserve our freedom, Flag Day reminds us that, though diverse and different as we may be, we are one nation. That was, after all, the purpose of the flag – to unify the disparate colonies and inspire them to fight together. Today Americans seem to fight more among themselves than together.

What Will Happen When the Supreme Court Rules on Roe v. Wade?

What Will Happen When the Supreme Court Rules on Roe v. Wade?

As you can see, if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade today or in the next two weeks, the battle over abortion will shift from the federal level to the states and even local communities. Those of us who believe life is sacred from conception to natural death will be on the front lines. We will need to do all we can for the sake of the unborn, their biological parents and families, and our larger culture.
