One of the First Places to Start to Fix the Nation

Why do Christians waste time and money in defense of public (government) education? I heard a spirited defense of America’s primary governmental indoctrination centers at a conference I attended this weekend.

How Evangelicalism Lost Its Way And Helped Lose a Nation

Jesus said, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew 12:25). “Just preach the gospel.” How many times have you heard pastors and critics of social and political action scold Christians concerned about the moral direction the church is taking for mixing the […]

Are Some Pastors Segregating the Church from the World?

There are some Christians who take themselves out of the battle over worldviews by using the Bible for cover. They believe the Bible teaches that Christians should stay above the fray of cultural involvement. I’ve dealt with many of the arguments for this position in my book Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths.

Life, Liberty, and Property

God’s sovereignty includes ownership of all His creation. Melchizedek, in blessing Abram, said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth (Gen. 14:19; cf. v. 22).

Family Culture vs. Pop Culture

Although it is never objectively accurate to say that a certain time period was “the good old days,” there are many positive values that our society has lost in the past 150 years. One of the most tragic of these losses was the disintegration of the family culture, and especially multi-generational connections and legacies. Because […]

The “Salt and Light” Mandates

After last week’s article was posted, I received an email from an individual who was concerned that I was placing blame on the Church for the sorry state of the American culture.
