The fundamental conflict in our culture and in our politics right now is a simple one. It is conflict between those who love the truth and speak the truth and those who hate the truth and want it repressed.

Prudence must know what is true before justice acts to do what is right. Fortitude must overcome fear to achieve the good, and temperance must moderate the passion of courage to prevent rashness. An understanding of human and divine love presupposes a knowledge of the cardinal virtues.

The heresy of the modern world rejects the classical heritage of natural law and the Christian tradition of divine law as it invents new rights like the right to an abortion, the right of physician-assisted suicide, and the right to same-sex marriage.

No one is able to take this stand for Jesus Christ who is not totally compelled by the majesty of His power. It is the only thing that matters, and yet it is strange that it’s the last thing we as Christian workers realize.

President Trump, with this directive, will flip the script. Religious liberty will now triumph over sexual deviancy for the first time in nearly a decade. It should be noted that this is only a draft version and it has not yet been signed by the president and formally issued. Let’s hope it’s just a matter of time. Mr. Trump campaigned aggressively on the promise that if elected he would protect religious liberty. Thank God, it looks like he meant what he said.

Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel… —1 Corinthians 1:17 Paul states here that the call of God is to preach the gospel. But remember what Paul means by “the gospel,” namely, the reality of redemption in our Lord Jesus Christ. We are inclined to make sanctification the goal of […]

As we feared, President Trump has chosen sides in the battle between homosexuality and religious liberty. And he has chosen poorly. From The Hill (emphasis mine): The White House said early Tuesday that President Trump will continue to enforce an Obama-era executive order protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community in the workplace. “President Donald […]

Many churches in America, sadly including many mega-churches, pride themselves on being “seeker-friendly,” by which they mean they are not judgmental and mean like those angry fundamentalists. Carrie Underwood famously supports sodomy-based marriage and attends a church whose pastor has so blurred the edges on the issue of homosexuality that his parishioners likely are confused […]

When they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples. —Mark 4:34  Our Solitude with Him. Jesus doesn’t take us aside and explain things to us all the time; He explains things to us as we are able to understand them. The lives of others are examples for us, but God requires us to […]

I now send you, to open their eyes…that they may receive forgiveness of sins… —Acts 26:17-18 This verse is the greatest example of the true essence of the message of a disciple of Jesus Christ in all of the New Testament.

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip?” —John 14:9 These words were not spoken as a rebuke, nor even with surprise; Jesus was encouraging Philip to draw closer. Yet the last person we get intimate with is Jesus. Before Pentecost the disciples knew […]
