The Year of Our Lord 2016 has not been an easy one. Many remarkable headlines have come and gone over the past 365 days. I thought I’d take time to highlight some big stories in the evangelical world, arranged in no particular order. Read more

God calls pastors to protect their parishioners as Christ protects his flock. By psychologizing sin, by making light of sin, by being more confessional comedian than repentant sinner, Bolz-Weber leads her flock to poison. Read more

by R. Scott Smith Surely God is at work doing many things in the United States, and evangelicals have been trying to hold to the doctrinal truths of Christianity. Moreover, Christians are to be marked by God’s presence and power. Nevertheless, it seems that, overall, evangelicals do not have much influence, especially given the promised power of the gospel and the risen Lord Jesus, and His promised presence. So, where is the power and presence of the Lord? With this… Read more

by Scott Masson The death of Fidel Castro marks the end of an era.  With the Cuban dictator’s death the last icon of Marxism is gone.  Like all international socialist regimes, Castro destroyed myriad lives and deployed an apparatus of oppression, torture and death to maintain his grip on power. Under his reign of terror, the truth also died, and not by accident.  The Communists’ zeal for group rights for the oppressed not only entailed displacing the rich and powerful. … Read more

by Josh Helms Christmas is a melting pot of tradition at our house.  My wife brings her childhood traditions to the kitchen and I bring mine, each adding their own unique flavor to the boiling stew we call Christmas at the Helms’.  Before we had kids, our stew had a somewhat mild yet tasty flavor with just the right amounts of this and that.  Once we added kids to the recipe, things really got robust!  It was time to make… Read more

by Satchel Johnsen and Alex Hamann Russian hackers and rigged voting systems aren’t the biggest threat to American democracy. Rather, in the aftermath of the November 8 election we must reflect on our own behaviors and attitudes as an American people. The preservation of American democracy depends on educating future leaders on college campuses about the essential importance of cultivating and maintaining a genuine respect for diversity of political viewpoints. The kind of demonization and delegitimization of those who supported, or… Read more

by Shannon Gianotti “This isn’t middle school anymore,” one of my ninth grade teachers used to say whenever someone complained about homework, “it’s not a bunch of warm fuzzies.” Neither is forgiveness, and for many of us the holidays can feel more like forgiveness boot camp than walking in a winter wonderland. As our families disappoint once us again, old hurts flare up, and holiday shopping ends in shouting matches, forgiveness can like an assault to our humanity. Could God… Read more

by Daniel Darling and Dean Inserra The opportunity to participate in a representative republic is a unique stewardship afforded to American Christians, a privilege to shape government that should not be taken lightly. If we want to fully love our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable neighbors, we must use our voices to speak up and help shape the governments that will rule over them and the policies that will affect their flourishing. And yet there is a way to participate… Read more

by Peter J. Leithart Christians often oppose truth and unity. Evangelicals are inclined to leave unity to the mushy mainline, to eclectic ecumenists, and devote themselves to the rock-hard truth, regardless of its divisiveness. The New Testament doesn’t permit this opposition. The rock-hard gospel truth is a truth about unity. The gospel announces the fulfillment of God’s plan to reconcile Adamic humanity with God. At the same time, it announces the fulfillment of God’s plan to reconcile Babelic humanity with… Read more
