Judaism and Abortion

Judaism and Abortion

Recently, U.S. House Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez stated, “For people who say, ‘I believe it’s a life,’ some people don’t. Our Jewish brothers and sisters, they are able to have an abortion according to their faith!” The central point AOC attempts to make in the video is that because not all religions agree on when life begins, the pro-life movement intends to impose Christian morality on everyone else.

It’s not at all surprising that various religions hold differing views on matters of moral significance. After all, religions don’t agree about whether God exists, who God is. Even so, the consistent reference to Judaism as the counter to “fundamentalist Christianity” led me to wonder whether it is really the case that Judaism supports a woman’s right to abort her child. 

People Are More Than Most Popular Ideologies Can Explain

People Are More Than Most Popular Ideologies Can Explain

People are more than most popular ideologies can explain. This is why Communist and Fascist dictatorships end up looking like each other over time. As my colleague Tim Padgett put it recently, “Sometimes worldviews simply give shape to the evil already within individuals.” 

And that’s what a Christian worldview says: That evil is already within individuals. The more the social bonds of a culture unravel, the more people are pushed to their ideological extremes.

This is especially the case in a world where digital technologies both radicalize and incentivize bad behaviors.

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.

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).
