  • March for Marriage

    This Saturday in Washington, D.C., the National Organization for Marriage will sponsor a March for Marriage, to protest the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage decision and the president's decree on school bathrooms and locker rooms, and to call for congressional action.

  • Why Do So Many Christians Dismiss Apologetics?

    I love apologetics. It’s fun to teach apologetics, discuss apologetics, and offer reasons for what I believe to non-Christians who ask. Yet, quite clearly, not all Christians share my enthusiasm. Why not? Below are five common reasons why many Christians dismiss apologetics (thanks to my Twitter friends, acknowledged below).

  • An Open Letter to Graduates: Part 2

    In my last post I offered the biblical prophet Daniel as an example to graduates of how to stay strong in their faith during college. Even though Daniel was in a foreign culture, not unlike where college freshmen will soon find themselves, he stood strong because Daniel determined in his heart beforehand not to defile himself (Daniel 1:8). Daniel had his heart set on doing right before the pressure came and that made all the difference.

    In this post I want to offer three practical ways you can purpose beforehand to do the right thing so you can thrive in college rather than crash. Following are three specific issues you will soon face as you move into university life.

  • An Open Letter to Graduates: Part 1

    Dear Graduates,

    Excitement. Anticipation. Eagerness. Anxiety. Fear. My guess is that these emotions, and many more, are going through your heart and mind right now as you prepare to leave high school for the “real world.” Not too long ago I was in the same boat. I have since learned some powerful lessons I would like to share with you. Will you allow me to share some personal encouragement and insights to help you succeed in college? I want nothing more than to see my own students flourish as followers of Jesus in college. And I want the same for you. If you read this two-part series you will be miles ahead of many of your peers. Prayerfully take these words to heart and I believe they could make all the difference for you.

  • Has the Internet Made Parenting Impossible?

    A provocative article in TIME suggests that it has:

    "With every move documented in real-time on social media, parents have lost control of the very personal narrative of their real lives. What has for years been a cute story at my family barbecue about the time my mom lost me as a toddler at Disney World would today be a hotly contested debate amid strangers online. These strangers feel they not only have the right to comment and judge all involved, but also to take action, in the form of harassment, badgering, petitions or even phone calls to authorities. There is no such thing as an honest mistake for parents anymore."

    Unfortunately, as recent events have demonstrated, there's plenty of truth in this statement. All the more reason for Christian parents to remember to rely on God for their sense of self-worth, and not to be tempted to get it from others -- especially others on the internet.

  • Tracking Jesus' Wife

    The Atlantic has a fascinating story on the scrap of papyrus that had so many convinced that Jesus was married. It's a cautionary tale of vested interests, unethical practices, shoddy scholarship, and headline hunters, and it's very much worth a read.READ FULL ARTICLE »
