Andy Stanley’s Ridiculous Attack on Families and Churches

I like Andy Stanley. His writing and teaching have been a help to me over the years. But his recent attack on families and churches leaves me wondering if he hasn't drunk too much of his own mega-church Kool-aid.I've enjoyed Stanley's leadership sessions at Catalyst and elsewhere. Although we've never met, we have a number of mutual friends. He is the pastor of the largest church in America.But his recent slam on any church that isn't trying to be a mega-church and any family that isn't … [Read more...]

Frustrated Evangelicals Demand a King in Donald Trump

 2016 will not be the first time the people of God made political decisions born of fear instead of faith. Evangelicals who know their biblical history will recall the time of the judges after the Israelites had left Egypt and entered the Promised Land of Canaan. It was a chaotic and lawless time during which foreigners routinely invaded. The people of God grew tired of it all. They demanded a savior, a ruler who would fix all their problems and make Israel great again.They repudiated … [Read more...]

John Kasich Delivers Blow to Religious Liberty

In what was one of the most disturbing moments of last night's GOP debate in Houston, John Kasich declared war on religious liberty.He ridiculed those who refuse to endorse behavior they believe to be sinful.The same guy who said he would lock private business owners (Apple) in a room with the FBI until they agreed to give access to their phones, said Christians should just accept the travesty of Obergefell and accept the abolition of marriage.I presume he believes the same about Roe … [Read more...]
