Marriage is increasingly marginalized in our culture. It’s time we stand up and celebrate the wonderful gift it is.
Porn Fan & “Shame” Foe: Another Wolf in the Church
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.06.18
Publicity-hound in sheep’s clothing, Nadia Bolz-Weber, former pastor of a fake church in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) denomination, is in the news again. Last August, Bolz-Weber made the news by proclaiming that “consumption of pornography” shouldn’t be shamed. In her view, there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with watching “ethically sourced” porn as long as people consume it in moderation.

Reading, writing, arithmetic and a new mandate for classrooms: LGBT history. It could be coming soon to government schools in Illinois.
The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
10.25.18
Forty years ago, a group of evangelical leaders and scholars took a clear and unapologetic stand on a fundamental tenet of the faith. This month marks the fortieth anniversary of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, which was signed in October of 1978 by more than 200 evangelical leaders, including R.C. Sproul, J.I. Packer, and Francis Schaeffer. The Chicago Statement was not only a landmark document in evangelical history...
Hate, Inc. Loses the Pentagon But Gains Silicon Valley
By Robert Knight   |   10.12.18
The hate business may not be what it used to be – at least on the government level. The Defense Department has become the latest federal agency to sever ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an Alabama-based, hard-left...
Beyond the Kavanaugh Event: America’s Fading Traditions
10.03.18
A vast divide now exists among Americans. It is far more than a political rift between Democrats and Republicans. It is not merely a struggle between conservatives and liberals. The true nature of this conflict centers on how we shall live as individuals and what values we shall uphold as a nation. The facts at hand are not encouraging.
Getting Back to the Basics
By Jonathan Lewis   |   10.02.18
I recently embarked on the adventure of teaching my boys (ages six and four) how to ride a bike without training wheels. After multiple sessions, our efforts paid off and both boys are doing very well at keeping their balance....
Legislating Behavior  – Yes, It Is Possible
By Micah Clark   |   09.20.18
There is an often-repeated falsehood that liberals and some libertarians love to throw out in knee-jerk fashion to dismiss those who support morally ordered liberty.  You may have encountered it on social media.  The retort is “you can’t legislate morality.”...
The New Demographic Winter
By Israel Wayne   |   09.17.18
The world is quickly becoming over-populated. There is not enough water, food, fuel or other natural resources to sustain us all. We will soon be faced with a “survival of the fittest” class struggle, as the “have-nots” contend with the...
A Clear and Urgent Calling
By Jonathan Lewis   |   09.07.18
If you’ve been a believer for any length of time, you’re familiar with the Great Commission—the call to reach the whole world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s the marching orders of the church, so to speak, and rightly...
SJW Feeding Frenzy: Lesbian Actress Not Lesbian Enough to Play Batwoman
08.25.18
Fans of the dime-a-dozen televised superhero dramas may be in for some unfortunate news.  The actress tapped to play Batwoman in the latest installment of The CW's seriate "Arrowverse" has been determined not to be gay enough for the role.  That is, the actress is gay, but she doesn't prefer women enough – or enough to silence her critics, at least.
The Real Reason for the Left’s Double Standard on Hate Speech
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.15.18
Why is it that organizations like the SPLC can designate conservative Christians as hate groups while ignoring radical leftists like Antifa? Why is it that Facebook and Google and YouTube and Twitter appear to punish conservatives disproportionately for alleged violations of community guidelines? The answer is as disturbing as it is simple. The left believes it is so morally and intellectually superior to the right that it can see nothing wrong with its extreme positions and hostile words. Is it wrong to be intolerant of bigots? Is it wrong to hate (or even punch) a Nazi?
Liberals Against Freedom of Conscience
08.09.18
Why is it considered "liberal" to compel others to say or fund things they don't believe? That's a question raised by three Supreme Court decisions this year. And it's a puzzling development for those of us old enough to remember when liberals championed free speech — even advocacy of sedition or sodomy — and conservatives wanted government to restrain or limit it.
Three Reasons Why So Many Millennials Love Socialism
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.07.18
It’s true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it’s true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there’s no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why? According...
Why Some Conservatives Don’t Like Social Justice
By Israel Wayne   |   07.31.18
When you look at the history of Christianity in the West, it is largely defined (despite popular anti-Christian myth to the contrary) by Christians promoting social justice and charity for the poor and underprivileged. No other social group has been responsible for more positive social reform and improvements for the underprivileged, sick and downtrodden than Christians.
