For as long as I can remember I have been pro-life. My mom recalls the time when I was very young that I overheard [Read More...]

What kind of person are you becoming?

(On Tuesday, December 10, I was invited to give the chapel address at Colorado Christian University. This is a version of my remarks.) What is the most important question you can ask?

A Judgment Call

With the election only weeks away, I’ve been asked to offer advice for undecided Christian voters.  Let me be clear right up front: I am not an undecided Christian voter. Nor am I an Independent.
