On Living As if God Is Real

Martin Luther, the tortured and guilty soul that he was, took God seriously in a way that’s tough for me to grasp. He lived as if God were real. Read more

The red letters carry neither greater authority nor firmer textual certainty than the black. Read more

Millennials, It’s Time To Retire the ‘Why I Left the Church’ Genre

Originally published at BreakPoint.org. This article from Faithit is characteristic—almost to the point of satire—of the Internet’s most exhausting genre: 20-somethings explaining “why millennials are leaving the church.” Sam Eaton writes that the 59 percent of millennials who were raised in church and have dropped out are sending a message, and it’s the church’s responsibility to shape up to meet his generation’s demands. What are those demands? “Jesus was insanely clear about our purpose on earth,” he writes. “‘Love God. Love… Read more

On the Christian Bubble, and Being the Bad Guys

A recent episode of the Disney Channel cartoon show, “Doc McStuffins,” which is aimed at preschoolers, depicts a lesbian couple (who are dolls in a little girl’s imaginary world) teaching kids about emergency preparedness, specifically what to do when there’s an earthquake. One of the show’s writers, Chris Nee, is in a same-sex relationship herself. “My son has two moms,” she says, “and it’s a huge part of my life as a human being and it’s been an incredible part… Read more

The Writers of ‘Planet of the Apes’ Went Bananas with Christian Imagery

It’s summer, and I don’t need any other excuse for this post. I just saw “War for the Planet of the Apes,” the last of a reboot trilogy that’s probably my favorite science fiction franchise in recent years. It’s smart, emotionally gripping, and character-driven, all without sacrificing the kind of eye-popping realism that’s made motion-capture CGI imagery (and Andy Serkis) famous. Along with “The Life of Pi,” Disney’s live-action “Jungle Book” remake, and a hand full of other flicks involving digital animals, these… Read more
