Prior to my talk on the church and the LGBT community at Appalachian State University, students were warned to stay away from what was surely to be a hate-filled presentation by a hate-filled individual.
When I received the invitation to speak on homosexuality and the Bible at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, I immediately accepted it but told the campus group that invited me that it would be difficult to hold the event.
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, I’m not sure how this is faring on your side of the border, but here in America, your use of the word ‘peoplekind’ has raised some eyebrows.
On the one hand, you could argue that God is sovereign, and if He knows the number of hairs on our head, and not one bird falls to the ground apart from Him (Matthew 10:29-30), then yes, He gets involved in sports as well.
In the aftermath of the release “the memo,” I find myself wondering: Just how corrupt are we? Has our system gotten totally out of control?
Abortion is evil enough even in the early stages of a pregnancy. But aborting a baby 20 weeks or older is an act of savagery. To vote against passing the Pain-Capable bill is an act of moral perversion.
There is a firestorm of controversy over the comments of evangelical leader Tony Perkins that President Trump gets a ‘mulligan’ for his past sexual indiscretions
In Sara’s view, since Trump’s decision was strongly encouraged by evangelical Christians, that very name – evangelical – now has a negative connotation among the Palestinian people.
The media bombards us 24/7 with the latest failings or alleged failings of the President. But will you, my Never Trumper friends, be as truthful in your praise as you have been in your criticism?
Why would this fine, widely used modern translation, the New American Standard Bible (NASB), introduce the word ‘Palestine’ in its section headings?
Label me as puritanical if you like, an old-fashioned Bible-thumper, a fossil, an antique. Bring on all the insults you can muster. Say what you will. I still believe profanity is profane.
When the president does the right thing, we commend him and encourage him. When he does the wrong thing, with full respect for his office, we express our differences.
In a remarkable interview on “Too Wretched for Radio,” Todd Friel and Phil Johnson branded me “dangerous,” and called me “sub-orthodox.
Is Keller right in his assessment? Is “evangelical” nearly synonymous with “hypocrite,” in particular, because of large scale evangelical support for Trump?
With unrelenting intensity, CNN reporters bring the grim news. It appears that President Trump has lost his mind. This is a serious report about a serious story.
The net result of Wolff’s bestseller will be further polarization. Trump critics will further distrust him, Trump supporters will further distrust his opponents.
One of the best kept secrets in the world, concerning Iran, despite occasional media reports in the last few years: Iranian Muslims are converting to Christianity at an unprecedented pace.
NBC now requires employees to report inappropriate relationships in the workplace and has banned shared taxi rides for employees, and issued instructions on how to hug.
But what of the matter of ancient prophecy? Is there a connection between the UN’s vote and the Bible? I would say yes, for at least three reasons:
I am thrilled that Justin Bieber has pointed his 95 million Instagram followers to Jesus, and I truly hope that he is serious about living a life that is pleasing to God.
Is Christmas a holiday with pagan origins? Is it wrong to celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th? And what about putting up a Christmas tree?
Media outlets described the defeat of Roy Moore as a defeat of President Trump. With Trump’s low approval ratings, will 2018 be disastrous for Republicans?
Because I was unsure if the charges against Judge Roy Moore were true, had I lived in Alabama, I would have voted for him, since I much preferred his moral vision to that of Doug Jones.
Isn’t it hypocritical for a woman to present herself as a sexual object – clearly, intentionally, and unambiguously – if she doesn’t want to be seen as a sexual object?
Is Trump’s decision to move our embassy to Jerusalem an act that God Himself will bless? Is there spiritual significance to this decision as well?
The Supreme Court has now heard the arguments in the Masterpiece Cakes case, a case that pits gay rights against religious rights.
A respected pediatrician has warned against announcing ‘It’s a girl!’ or ‘It’s a boy!’ at the baby’s birth or when the sex is visible on an ultrasound.
My dear brothers, I remain committed to speaking at your conference next May in Bethlehem regardless of how you respond to this appeal.
Why, then, should a Christian baker be required by law to design a cake celebrating the “wedding” of two women (or men)?
