“Live Your Truth” and Other Lies
Apologist exposes modern day proverbs that trip up Christians and lure them from true biblical wisdom.
Another commonly repeated, highly consequential lie is that there’s such a thing as “your truth” and “my truth”: Christian, your truth doesn’t exist. Your truth won’t bring hope or save anyone. … The Cross is the answer to every lie that tells me I can find everything I need inside myself. … The Cross is... Continue Reading
Calvin Wasn’t Antichrist
It is not heresy to assign more responsibility to magistrates.
Christian princes are not church officers, insisted Calvin, but they have “obtained” by God’s sovereign decree. Like David, they should be versed in God’s law in order to apply it justly throughout the nation, leaving the administration of the sacraments and preaching to those with ministerial callings. Calvin’s view resonated with many in Britain where history... Continue Reading
Untold Ukraine Story of Churches Making a Difference
CityServe has evacuated thousands of young women, the elderly, and holocaust survivors, providing generators to churches that are now literal light houses.
Pastors and bishops tell CityServe leaders their greatest needs are helping young mothers who are now widows, the elderly and traumatized children. CityServe President Wendell Vinson is grateful to Ukrainian pastor and churches. “We get to link up with the church Jesus already has in Ukraine; it is moving forward, and the gospel is advancing throughout...

Conservatives’ Bud Light Boycott has been One of the Most Successful in Recent History
The World out there is filled with normal people who don’t think like DEI consultants.
The successful Bud Light boycott has already had something of a chilling effect on other corporations. For some companies, pushing LGBT ideology won’t be so readily seen as an automatic win. The fact that consumers could cost a major corporation billions of dollars to send them a message also revealed, once again, that the silent... Continue Reading
Everything Is Changing, and You Are Allowed to Object
Canadians need a handful of columnists to point out that they aren’t crazy. And that they aren’t hateful for objecting to what they see.
Schools and public libraries and daycares organize drag queen events for children, but if parents dare to object, they are accused of violating the human rights of the LGBT community (that happened). These events were not happening just a few years ago. This is brand new. It didn’t used to happen, and now it does—and... Continue Reading
Queering a Tudor Warship
The article is silly. But the fact that such silliness can be presented as a serious contribution on the website of a respected museum speaks much about our present age.
“Queerness as an interpretative tool” seems to be no more than the blunt assertion that today’s questions are the only ones worth asking and today’s categories the only ones worth applying. Never mind that when the ship sank, the crew drowned and that these artifacts spoke of real human lives that were lost and families... Continue Reading
Social Media Is a Spiritual Distortion Zone
Let’s be proactive in thinking through how we bring gospel hope and reformation to this deformation space.
What if instead of seeking a large platform to make a name for themselves, individual Christians made niche, interest-based content for specific audiences, seeing themselves as missionaries to those people? Instead of the Christian media landscape being dominated by a handful of celebrities, small to midsize Christian content creators—rooted in their local churches—have the opportunity to...

The Transgender Movement’s House of Cards Is Falling
A growing number of doctors, patients, and whistleblowers are beginning to question the medical establishment’s recommendations for children with gender dysphoria.
Instead of fostering serious, objective scientific inquiry and heeding concerns from within their own ranks, the establishment continues to rely on WPATH’s guidelines for dealing with gender dysphoria. And contrary to sound inquiry, WPATH cherry-picked studies instead of conducting a systematic review of the best available evidence. As one member of the Endocrine Society recently...

What Are You Living For?: Exploring Church, Family, and the Threat of Illness
If the game plan is to avoid church until death, we are already there.
Life is simply not worth living without God, and it is very difficult without family. Remove both, and you have existence, not life. One might say that he avoids church and gatherings because he does not want to die, but we must ask in return, “What are you living for?” Whatever the response, it will... Continue Reading
The Lies of “Born This Way”
An LGBTQ Presumption and the Damage it has Done
The lie of “born this way” has been used to justify exposing children to sexual material and teaching them about gender ideology at ever-younger ages. Coaston handwaves away these influences, even as she writes about the increase in LGBTQ identification that shows that they are succeeding in recruiting children into rainbow identities. The LGBTQ movement... Continue Reading
