Thoughtful Questions for Us All to Consider about Gay Marriage

Thoughtful Questions for Us All to Consider about Gay Marriage

I encourage you to read through this great post by Kevin DeYoung, "40 Questions for Christians Now Waving Rainbow Flags," then consider sharing it.

Here We Stand: An Evangelical Declaration on Marriage

Here We Stand: An Evangelical Declaration on Marriage

The way to love people is never to celebrate our sin or theirs, our temptations or theirs, but to come in humility as a fellow sinner and point to the One who paid for all our sins on the cross, and offers forgiveness.

How Should We View Muslims?

How Should We View Muslims?

We can and should love Muslims, pray for them, defend their civil rights, reach out and help them. But we can still believe their religion is false and that no matter how devoutly they practice it, without Christ they will go to Hell.

Atheism’s Foundation for Morality Is Built on Culture’s Shifting Sands

Atheism’s Foundation for Morality Is Built on Culture’s Shifting Sands

Many years ago I took a sequence of college philosophy classes from a likable atheist. I found the ethics course most interesting. Every time it came to the question of why the professor believed something to be right or wrong, he could say only that it “seemed” to him to be best, it “seemed” to him to help the most people. In other words, it always boiled down to his personal preference.

Why should gay marriage matter to Christians who love all people?

Why should gay marriage matter to Christians who love all people?

I highly recommend Kevin DeYoung's book What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality? He has an appendix on gay marriage that's terrific.

The Situation in Houston and the Erosion of Religious Liberties

HoustonYou may be aware of the situation in Houston, Texas, where five pastors who have been vocal in opposing the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) were subpoenaed by the mayor, demanding that they hand over materials related to what they may have said about gay and lesbian issues, and about the mayor herself. Hopefully this will serve as a wake-up call to those who imagine there has been no serious erosion of religious liberties in America. 

Avoiding Sexually Explicit Media and Pursuing Holiness

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. The thing many modern Christians seem most afraid of is that we won’t be in the cultural “know,” that we will be “out of it” and consequently uncool. 

The InterVarsity Situation and Why Inclusivity is Not the Greatest Good

InterVarsity studentsThis school year the California State University system is enacting a non-discrimination policy for all student organizations. This non-discrimination policy prohibits faith-based student organizations from requiring students to be of that faith to hold a leadership position.
