Are Republicans Going to Outpace Democrats in Supporting Same-Sex Marriage?

Denny Burk just offered a discomfiting commentary on the recent remarks at CPAC by GOP presidential frontrunner Marco Rubio regarding marriage. Here’s what Denny, my eagle-eyed colleague, had this to say: I like Marco Rubio. I really do. But did you see his remarks at CPAC today? If not, you can watch above. There was [Read More...]

How Should We Make the Case for Marriage?

This is not a small question. For evangelicals, the first place we go–and the ultimate source from which we draw–is God’s Word. Scripture is authoritative and normative, not simply for our Sunday gatherings, but for all of life. So our support of marriage–the permanent union between a man and a woman–is grounded in God’s formation [Read More...]

What Is Manhood & Womanhood? Two Interviews on Gender & the Gospel

Got a couple of resources for you here, both dealing with manhood, womanhood, marriage, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. The first is a 36-minute interview with the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. I did this with Jeremiah Dys of the FPC and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The second is a two-part interview with Carroll [Read More...]

Back to Your Posts (Again): Responding to Dalrymple on Marriage

I really like Tim Dalrymple. The dude is sharp, and he’s on the good guys’ side. He’s also forward-thinking. He’s just reopened the conversation in which I participated a little while back on whether evangelicals, in light of shifting cultural opinion on marriage, should make some kind of cultural bargain to legitimize gay marriage as [Read More...]

Dear Evangelicals: You Don’t Need to Be Quiet, You Need to Speak Up

When it comes to evangelical public engagement, many of us are metaphorically in rocking chairs. The culture’s sure shifting, we say as we gaze at the sunset. In twenty years, you might lose your pulpit. We whistle low and shake our head. Crazy world. When it comes to all that cultural rabble-rousing, we grimace. We don’t want [Read More...]

Get Equipped: What Is Marriage?

The Heritage Foundation just hosted a helpful discussion on what marriage is featuring Robby George, Sherif Girgis, and Ryan Anderson. The discussion draws off a book, What Is Marriage?, just published by these three thinkers. If you want to be equipped on a strong, accessible public square argument for marriage based in sharp thinking and reason, [Read More...]

The Key to a Strong Marriage: Humble Repentance

Every marriage is under attack. Marriage is given to humanity by God as, ultimately, an expression and picture of his love for his people. Satan, the anti-aesthete and anti-tutor, wants to tear this living image down. There is much to work on in marriage, but it strikes me that there is a single key that [Read More...]

Should We Leave Our Marriages for Greener Pastures?

The New York Times just published a stomach-turner on the dissolution of a marriage.  It’s called “After the Affair,” and it’s by a woman named Judy Wachs (HT: Ben Domenech). The piece details Wachs’s discovery of her husband’s affair.  Her extension of forgiveness is commendable, but then the piece takes a strongly dispiriting turn: And when [Read More...]

A Post-Election Letter to Young Evangelicals: Yes, Jesus Is Sovereign–But Suffering Matters

Dear God-loving young evangelical, I want you to know something: I hugely appreciate your confidence in God.  It is deeply heartening to me to see that you are showing firm confidence in the Lord in the wake of the defeat of the pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-religious liberty presidential ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  The [Read More...]
