Addressing Abuse & Defending the Bride
Scandal mongers and abuse activists try to portray the Christ's bride as a haven for abusers with vague, yet salacious accusations. But this is not the way.
The PCA has a structure for bringing charges against members and officers, and it requires two witnesses of an alleged offense. These two witnesses may be either people or material (e.g., police report). But these scandal-mongering blogs bypass the judicial system of the Church entirely and instead slander the good name and reputation of the... Continue Reading
Jail Time for Hurt Feelings?
When “Misgendering” and “Deadnaming” Become Crimes
The new law differs from the old version in two key ways: by expanding protected class status to self-identified sexual minorities, and by significantly rewriting the terms under which charges may be pressed. The old language prohibited physical assault and property destruction “with specific intent to intimidate or harass another person” falling in one of... Continue Reading
303 Creative Is a Big Win for Religious Liberty at the Supreme Court
The Court’s decision makes it clear that a majority of the justices on the U.S. Supreme Court believe in this expansive view of religious freedom.
The First Amendment’s protections belong to all, not just to speakers whose motives the government finds worthy. In this case, Colorado seeks to force an individual to speak in ways that align with its views but defy her conscience about a matter of major significance. Today’s decision is significant because the Court acknowledged that the belief... Continue Reading
Rejecting Your Maker Means Rejecting Your True Identity
Transgender ideology subverts the role of the Maker by allowing the creature to determine its identity.
Modern gender theory wrongly bifurcates gender identity from your biological sex and grounds a person’s identity in the former. By doing so, identity becomes something decided upon by each individual based on an internal feeling. If identity is an enduring part of who you are, then leaving it up to a personal decision is problematic.... Continue Reading
What Is New Age Spirituality?
Many who are involved in New Age practices speak of God in general terms, they do not know Him as the infinite and eternal God of Scripture.
Many who embrace New Age practices believe in karma and reincarnation. As in Hinduism, the ultimate goal in the New Age movement is to achieve oneness with the divine. Adherents of New Age spirituality reject the biblical doctrines of the fall, the sinfulness and depravity of man, the need for an atoning sacrifice, and the... Continue Reading
Why Are So Many of Our Youth Identifying as LGBTQ+?
Many in the Gen Z and alpha generation who currently find their value, meaning, and identity in an LGBTQ+ label will, in God’s good timing, find Christ alone to be their all-in-all.
In the latest Gallup poll for 2022, only 2.7% of baby boomers and 3.3% of Gen Xers identified as LGBTQ+ versus 11.2% of millennials and 19.7% of Gen Z. Along with that, while there was only a slight increase in the total percentage of Americans identifying as LGBTQ+ from 2012–2020, that number showed a marked... Continue Reading
A Clear Ruling on Religious Accommodation
The Supreme Court unanimously protects religious employees.
The Supreme Court made it clear that the Constitution does not “‘compel the government to purge from the public sphere’ anything an objective observer could reasonably infer endorses or ‘partakes of the religious.’” Now, the court is ensuring that religious Americans need not leave their faith at home when they go to work. In... Continue Reading
Is Math Racist?
Objective truth, not politics, empowers students.
Students who are taught that answers to algebra problems depend on the color of their skin and that calculus professors are oppressors are not only not going to unlock the mysteries of the universe, but they will also believe what is not true about who they are and the world in which they live. Woke educators may hope to liberate... Continue Reading
What Is Islam?
Muslims follow a works-based religion and thus live with uncertainty whether Allah will admit them to paradise. No such uncertainty exists in the message of the gospel.
Though it professes to be the authoritative revelation of the one true God, the Qur’an includes a number of historically and theologically inaccurate accounts of biblical figures. For instance, the Qur’an teaches that Abraham offered up Ishmael rather than Isaac. The Qur’an also teaches that Isa ibn Maryam (Jesus, the son of Mary) was merely... Continue Reading
Uganda and Its Opposition to LGBTQ Normalization
The country’s new “anti-gay” laws hit Western controversy.
Every civilized society criminalizes some sexual behaviors, and Ugandans have the right to define the boundaries of legal sexual behaviors. More specifically, they have the right to consider homosexual acts as criminal offenses. The outage from Western political leaders and the United Nations is against any such legislation. The East African nation of Uganda... Continue Reading
