Has the World Overtaken the Church?
By Micah Clark   |   05.05.21
There was a troubling recent story in Christianity Today that reveals many churches are failing the call to be in the world, but not of the world. It seems that most young Evangelical Christians now embrace cohabitation, living together before marriage. Most Evangelicals under the age of 45 have cohabited, or plan to do so in the future, or are open to the possibility.
Defining Deviancy Down
By Micah Clark   |   04.15.21
The title is a reference to a concept espoused decades ago by U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY). The idea was not original to Moynihan, but the phrase meant that as bad behavior becomes more pervasive a limit is crossed...

By Micah Clark   |   10.08.20
Think about how Satan can desensitize people and compromise values through humor, whether it be TV sitcoms or shows that are funny, but advance lifestyles or agendas that conflict with a Christian worldview. If you recognize this, then you probably understand what The Babylon Bee does so well by making people think, through humor and satire.
A Major Problem that Explains a lot in Society
By Micah Clark   |   09.30.20
In the last two weeks I have met with two legislators who separately made the same observation as we discussed various cultural problems and issues of the day.  They both said this all goes back to the breakdown of the...
Higher Education and Liberal Indoctrination
By Micah Clark   |   09.10.20
There is an interesting article about liberal views on college campuses seeking to address the question, “Does college make students more liberal?”   It is written by several college professors, funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation, and promoted by Ohio State and North Carolina State Universities.
Perspective Should Make Us Thankful Americans
By Micah Clark   |   08.13.20
There is a lot of talk of oppression, privilege and struggles in America right now. Unfortunately, the vast majority of this dialogue is in the negative sense, very often as a smear against our system of governance.  Americans have a tendency to look through a lens that clouds not only our history, but it also limits our views to an Ameri-centric perspective.
The Intolerance of the Tolerance Culture
By Micah Clark   |   07.31.20
After two decades of hearing the virtues of tolerance and diversity, American society has become increasingly intolerant, and because of that, less diverse when it comes to the ability to offer opinions in public and private discourse.
Cancel Culture is Upon Us
By Micah Clark   |   07.02.20
Democrats in California have passed a resolution to tear down a statue of John Wayne and to remove his name from the airport where it stands. The reason they say that they are doing this stems from a 1971 interview...
A Powerful Slogan Hides Core Issues
By Micah Clark   |   06.18.20
If you have logged on to Netflix, Amazon, and other places recently, you have probably seen some of corporate America’s virtue signaling through banners in support of Black Lives Matter.  By itself, it is a powerful slogan which no one can disagree with, even if you’d prefer to say all lives matter.  However, there’s more to this than just a slogan.
America Is Not Racist
By Micah Clark   |   06.11.20

Racism is Your Fault, You Just Don’t Realize It
By Micah Clark   |   06.05.20
There are a lot of really bad ideas swirling around our culture right now.  (That headline is one of them.) Among many bad ideas, I am concerned about the things being embraced by various people and groups in a manner...
To be Most Happy, You Should Marry Your Soul Mate
By Micah Clark   |   05.28.20
You may have noticed in modern movies that there is an ideal of finding one’s soulmate in romantic movies. Modern progressive ideology of a marriage being about self-fulfillment, more than commitment, is clearly evident in our culture.
Church Lawsuits Stacking Up
By Micah Clark   |   05.01.20
One of the nation’s leading religious freedom law firms, The Liberty Counsel, has recently reported that it is receiving a flood of complaints on behalf of pastors and ministry leaders in 30 states regarding heavy handed tactics singling out churches for punishment during shutdown orders. They are taking legal action in numerous situations to defend the constitutional rights of religious freedom.
Are Divorce Rates the Same Among Christians and Non-Christians?
By Micah Clark   |   03.13.20
One of the often-cited claims that seems to have taken hold is that the divorce rate in the church is the same as outside of the church. Yet, is this really true? The claim overlooks what the research really says...
Marriage and the “Success Sequence”
By Micah Clark   |   01.17.20
We hear politicians talk a lot about pathways to success, or methods to improve economic outcomes, but one factor almost never mentioned is marriage.  In fact, traditional marriage is generally looked down upon in American culture today.
