The Situation in Houston and the Erosion of Religious Liberties

Watching TVI am deeply concerned about the number of God's people who are opening their lives up to popular television programs, movies and books that are sexually explicit.

Believers in a Culture That Is Increasingly Hostile to Christianity

Culture Increasingly Hostile to Christianity / Looking and Pointing UpIf our eyes are on anyone but Jesus, we’re not going to have the stamina to put up with criticism or outright hostility. Paul said, “If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10).

 

FamilyLife, Redefining Marriage, and the Most Loving Thing We Can Do

FamilyLifeAfter the Supreme Court declared DOMA to be unconstitutional this past June, Dennis Rainey shared a letter about FamilyLife’s controversial radio broadcast on this issue.

The Crucial Question Related to the Affordable Care Act: Does Human Life Begin at Conception or Implantation?
