Let There Be Light
09.12.19
Light, in all of its meanings and manifestations, is directly associated with Jehovah God and with Jesus the Christ.  In fact, a study of light in the Bible can tell us much about God and his intended relationship to Man.  When a concept is mentioned over 50 times in Scripture, we would do well to see why this is so.

By David E. Smith   |   08.26.19
As John Stonestreet taught in his sessions at the IFI Worldview Conference, it is important for Christians to engage with culture, for culture-making is something God created us to do; to avoid culture is to avoid the world that God has given us.

By Douglas Wilson   |   08.23.19
We have had multiple stories we could use to illustrate how this works, three a day on average, but let me just pick one of the gaudier ones—drag queens in the kids’ section of our libraries. There are three basic kinds of characters in these stories. First, we have the drag queens grooming the little kids, and the lesbian librarians who set it all up. Second, we have a goodly number of Joe Six-packs, watching the news about this latest travesty as it comes on the 48 television sets at their favorite sports bar, with all of them saying, “What the hell?!” or the rough equivalent. And then third, we have the effeminacy of silence everywhere else.

The Effects Of A Lukewarm Church
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   08.02.19
