Each year I’m asked to put together a Christmas list for family members to make gift buying a little easier on everyone. I figured since we’re close to that time again this year, some of the things on that list might help give some of our readers ideas of unique items available they might not otherwise know of. The challenge that is often presented is in finding good, quality items for loved ones without giving away what you plan on… Read more

With the 2020 election wrapping up, it seems clear that Joe Biden will likely be the next president of the United States. Many of my fellow conservative Christian friends find it distressing. I find it distressing. But, as many Christians have already rightly pointed out, Jesus is still king, he is sovereign, and he is good. I want to add some additional thoughts which might be of some encouragement. But first, let’s look at scripture.   John 8.36 “So if… Read more

Election years are always interesting to me for the simple reason that it reveals what much of the world holds in high esteem. Surely, the 2020 presidential election for the United States is no different than the rest in that regard, though it will undoubtedly shape up to be interesting, to say the least. The reason I say this is also relatively simple: it seems that no matter the outcome, the results will be highly contested and make the 2000… Read more

As we near the commemoration of another Reformation Day, I wonder if the Evangelical Church could tolerate a man like Luther in our own day. My sentiments are that he would be the bane of many within even the Reformed traditions, most notably for his lack of overall candor and poor tone. My intention here is not to suggest I always felt Luther was correct in his inflammatory rhetoric, but I do believe he was the man needed for the… Read more

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). One of the fundamental propositions of the Bible is assumed from the start: God exists. Not only does He exist, He is the Author and Creator of all life, and therefore, all things in existence owe their existence to Him. In an astoundingly short sentence—a mere eight words in the Hebrew—the foundations of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures answer several of life’s biggest questions and introduce several other important questions…. Read more

The Democratic Party has built its entire platform off of two major issues: abortion and sexual anarchy. I will state at the beginning of this that no Christian can support the Democratic Party. I have no qualms expressing such. I find it hard to believe that professing Christians could even find this topic worthy of debate. Per Scripture’s own stance on the evil of abortion and sexual licentiousness, these issues really are about as black and white as they can… Read more

Over the years I have written quite a bit on the fall of prominent Christians caught up in various scandals. In the same breath, I have spent a rather decent amount of time calling to attention what would be construed as doctrinal failure from many others. I wrote here on the fall of Mark Driscoll, here on Tullian Tchividjian, here on Art Azurdia, and I have also dialed in on the doctrinal maladies of men like Andy Stanley (here, here,… Read more

In the event you haven’t read anything on the subject yet, new allegations of egregious sexual misconduct have arisen against the late apologist, Ravi Zacharias. This time, the allegations come from previous employees of the apologist during private massage sessions, where Ravi exposed and gratified himself multiple times over the course of years. Despite all of its critics, there is certainly something to be commended about the Mike Pence Rule (or the Billy Graham Rule, whichever you prefer to call… Read more

Douglas Wilson of Moscow, Idaho has seen no shortage of controversy in his tenure as pastor at Christ Church. Many within and without of the broader church have what can only be described as a vitriolic hatred for the man. As one friend quipped, “He could cure cancer and still be hated for it.” It takes a special sort of man to earn that reputation, but rest assured, that disdain has been passed down as a birthright to his children… Read more

All Christians are aware of the horrors of abortion, but I fear too few are aware of how popular birth control measures work. We are passively killing children and not even knowing it. Read more
