Biden Administration Issues Title IX Regulations: Parental Rights at Stake

Biden Administration Issues Title IX Regulations: Parental Rights at Stake

Earlier this summer, the U.S. Department of Education announced new regulations regarding Title IX, which is designed to ensure and protect access for women and girls in education. These new rules are 700 pages long and are being trumpeted by organizations such as the National Education Association as a victory for victims of sexual harassment and clarification of discrimination based on sex. However, what is meant by “sex” will be a disaster for women.

How Christian Truth Became Hate Speech

How Christian Truth Became Hate Speech

Our root problem is simple and tragic: people will accuse the truth of being a lie if it contradicts lies they want to believe are true. Our first parents wanted to be their own god (Genesis 3:5). They wanted what seemed “good for food,” a “delight to the eyes,” and “desired to make one wise” (v. 6). And so they ate the forbidden fruit, and the human race has never recovered. Don’t think for a minute that you and I are less susceptible to lies we want to believe.

Monkeypox: How the Feeble Response Endangers Public Health

While even the World Health Organization urges gay men to temporarily curb their lifestyle for the sake of safety, many American officials practically begged for an outbreak, afraid to place any limits on the expression of politically favored sexual identities. Doing so, they claim, threatens to revive the “stigma” and “homophobia” our culture has so successfully suppressed. In an echo of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, the disease itself is treated as discriminatory, as if it’s unfair of the monkeypox virus to target gay men.

Called to Be Faithful in the Here and Now

Called to Be Faithful in the Here and Now

We don’t know if our moment is one where the enduring faithfulness of God’s people standing athwart the tides of history will push this world back to reality. Or if it is one where we will lose our lives in our quest to be faithful. What we do know is that Christ has called us to this time and this place. As Gandalf said to Frodo, when he wondered why he should have to live in such times, being meant to be here and now “is a very encouraging thought.” So, whatever comes, great victories or the full evaporation of progress, our task is the same: faithfulness, not success.
