How Can We Help Churches in the Soviet Union?

Randy Alcorn traveled to the Soviet Union in 1991. "The book of Acts." That's what kept going through my mind. I've never seen greater spiritual hunger and works of the Holy Spirit than in the Soviet Union these lasts few weeks. I got home yesterday and my mind is still spinning. Lenin is the false God, the antichrist of Marxism. Note the biblical ring to this Russian saying: "Lenin was, and is, and evermore shall be." Lenin promised a thousand-year reign of communism, and the death of Christianity. It's been seventy years, and the people are sick ...

Martin Luther King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail

Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.

A Biblical Perspective to Counseling

Jay Adams is the author of Competent to Counsel and many other biblically-oriented works on Christian counseling. Over the years his writings have been a source of controversy because he has held to the belief that Christian counseling should be solidly based on the Scriptures, and that modern psychology has no authoritative basis on which to guide people.

The issue is not “Is capital punishment always right?” No one maintains that capital punishment is right for every crime, or when carried out by just anyone. When it is mistakenly carried out against the innocent it is horribly wrong. The real issue should ...

WARNING! Epidemic in the Church

Ask the enlightened American what he thinks of Christian sexual morality. To him, it’s a fossil—an antique that went out with washboards and penny candy. Who believes any more what the Bible says about sex?

Homosexual Movement Updates

In my book Christians in the Wake of the Sexual Revolution, published in 1985, I have a chapter entitled The Homosexual Movement. Heres just a partial portrait of the homosexual community: In gay baths men meet and copulate with total strangers and often have sex with multiple partners. Government official Dan Bradley described his first visit to a gay bath: I must have had sex with ten different guys that first night. I was like a kid in a candy store. The baths allow sexual relations in front of others or in private cubicles, often without even the exchange ...

Peculiar Perils of Leadership

Although there are occupational hazards in all callings, the perils of the spiritual leader are especially subtle.
