More
Whew! Quite a saga at Azusa Pacific University over the last 6 months. You can read about the previous events here, but the latest development is that APU has, again, removed a ban on same-sex romantic relationships; the latest in a series of flip flops for the self-proclaimed Evangelical Christian university.

Why The Church Needs Lent

3/12/2019
More
If you are like me and did not grow up in a Christian tradition that follows the liturgical seasons, Lent might seem like a ritualistic form of spiritual discipline.

2/26/2019
More
The old discussion point about when life begins — at conception, viability, a certain trimester — appears to be resolved by some politicians. Apparently, life begins when they say it does.

#ExposeChristianSchools

2/2/2019
More
Its no secret that our culture wishes to dismantle Christian institutions; its been trying to bring down churches and Christian colleges and universities for years. You might think that Christian K-12 schools and homeschools are exempt from this attack; that smaller communities of faith would be understood to have more leniency with raising their children, […]

Modern Child Sacrifice

1/27/2019
More
The social dynamics of our modern culture often feel like a strange new game with new rules that often invoke odd behaviors. I have heard many people lament things like our culture’s victim mentality, the weakness of our generation’s men, fragility of young people in general, and how lazy and unintellectual our culture is. Psychologist […]

It removed a rule banning same-sex romance and relationships (not just sexual activity) which […]

While fielding questions about composure in big games, Lawrence acknowledged Jesus Christ’s role in his life, saying: “Football’s important to me, but it’s not my life.

More
It’s the 3rd day of Christmastide, and I’m sitting on a busy street in front of my parents place waiting for a tow truck. On this particular occasion, I had a lot of time to think. I often wonder about how my parents raised me, how I came to be who I am, and what […]
