DYB_Blog_ChristCost-1024x535

There is a war in America on your faith, family, and freedom to believe.For far too long, many of us have tried to stay on the sidelines, hoping the wildfire would burn past and leave us, our family, and our church alone.But those days are gone. The sidelines are shrinking. Everyone is fair game now.The florist, the baker, the pharmacist, the student, the coach, the small business owner, the parents, the children — all of them will be made to care.For several years, Erick E … [Read more...]

10 Topics Every Christian Couple Should Discuss before Marriage

Bénédiction_des_époux_lors_d'un_mariage

How do I know the person God wants me to marry?My son asked me this question not long ago. It's a question I get often from readers trying to figure out what God wants them to do next.On the one hand, the question is much simpler than we make it. On the other hand, it is far more nuanced than we'd like to admit.Almost 18 years have passed since my wife and I said I do. Six kids later, we're rapidly approaching that time in life when our own children will be deciding when to get … [Read more...]

Why I’m Still Struggling to Sing in Your Church

music

A few years ago, I wrote a post finally just being honest about what I thought about modern church worship music in evangelical circles. It struck a chord as I discovered I was not alone in my frustration.I wanted to sing—and to sing in a way that didn't make me feel as if I were back in grade school—and a lot of other people did, too.Many people came out of the worship closet then, saying they had left the church entirely because of the pathetic state of music.Although I don't en … [Read more...]

YMCA Bows to Bullies on Transgendered Locker Rooms

YMCA_logo

OK. This is just hilarious. Or at least it would be if it were not true.The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap counties in Washington state had implemented a policy earlier this year not to allow people who are confused about their gender to choose their own locker rooms.But now they have reversed that decision. You are now free to move about in whichever locker room you choose.“In October we released a statement asking our transgendered members at our family facilities to use private ch … [Read more...]

Schools and the YMCA Allow Boys in the Girls Bathrooms

Bathroom-gender-sign

So which is it?On the one hand, we are constantly bombarded with the propaganda that one’s sexual orientation is not a choice. It is programmed into our genetic makeup from birth, even though there is no science to support such a claim and ample evidence that it is not true.Yet the Left is rallying around transgenders, those who are genetically unequivocally either male or female, pushing for the right to choose whether to live their lives as male or female and their right to use wh … [Read more...]

Will North Carolina Magistrates Be Made to Perform Same-Sex Marriages?

Entering_Union_County_on_North_Carolina_Highway_200

The religious freedom of some North Carolina magistrates is under attack.North Carolina is one of only two states to offer protection for those officials who cannot in good conscience—by the tenets of their Christian faith—carry out a marriage between same-sex individuals.The state law allows for magistrates with “sincerely held religious objection,” to recuse themselves from conducting a same-sex marriage, while local counties provide alternate magistrates who do not hold such object … [Read more...]

3 Ways to Help Syrian Refugees Right Now

Syrian Refugees

When I wrote about Syrian refugees a few weeks ago, I said it is not bigoted or unloving — and definitely not un-Christian — to protect the safety of our families and our homeland.But that doesn’t mean I don’t care about the families fleeing for their lives.  And whether they are Christian or Muslim should not matter one bit.Christ has called us to be wise and gentle, both protecting the innocent and generously giving to those in need. The two are not contradictory.The question no … [Read more...]

Rubio Is Right: Obey God, Not the Supreme Court

US-VOTE-2012-REPUBLICAN CONVENTION

Senator and Republican Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio turned some heads on the Left recently by saying we should obey God rather than men.The fact that such a simple statement would provoke controversy at all signals just how far our freedoms have already slipped.What Rubio said is nothing new. It is what nearly every Christian -- and people of every major religion -- have believed for two millenia:In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally … [Read more...]
