A Return to Virtue in the Wake of Scandal?
By Eric Metaxas   |   12.09.17
The consequences of the secular worldview on sexuality are now coming to light as sexual harassment scandals explode into public view.

Liberal Censorship
By Eric Metaxas   |   06.04.16

Women and the Draft
By Eric Metaxas   |   02.18.16
If there really are no differences between men and women, then sure, subject women to the military draft. However, the Christian worldview doesn't overlook or ignore the differences between men and women, but celebrates those differences. Equality doesn't mean common sense should be silenced in favor of political correctness.
Engaging the Culture: What Does That Mean?
By Eric Metaxas   |   02.06.16
Back in the old days — so I’m told — Christians used to compete with one another to see who could reject culture the most. Sometimes this was good and necessary. For example, whatever you think of the Temperance Movement...

By Eric Metaxas   |   09.18.15

How Does Gay ‘Marriage’ Hurt Us? Here’s How.
By Eric Metaxas   |   06.18.15
Christians are often asked by gay activists why they oppose same-sex “marriage.” “How does our marriage hurt you?” they ask. Well, I can think of one significant way it will hurt us: It will destroy religious freedom and free speech...

By Eric Metaxas   |   06.08.15
In the first century, Jesus was asked whether the Jewish people, who were under pagan, Roman occupation, should pay taxes to Caesar. The Lord, of course, said we are to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and unto God what...

The Shifting Definition of Religious Freedom
By Eric Metaxas   |   04.16.15
It’s almost become a part of the weekly news cycle: American citizens publicly tarred and feathered for professing their sincerely held religious beliefs. Just this month, we watched a family-owned pizzeria close its doors after its owners received hate mail...
