Sex Education In Our Public Schools: Confusion And Apostasy

Oct 19th, 2019 | By

Recently, the American Psychological Association (APA) declared that “polyamory,” “swinging,” and “relationship anarchy” are “healthy and ethical.” The APA is a powerful organization that has a significant influence over how public school educators plan and write curriculum. Will public educators who are educating and training the next generation of leaders in America, buy into this declaration?

As we receive Christ as Savior, we are to walk in Him, rooted, built up, strengthened and abounding in thankfulness.



The Moscow-Beijing-Tehran Axis

Oct 12th, 2019 | By

As we approach the third decade of the 21st century, a new world order is emerging. To some extent, the role of the US is diminished somewhat, but America remains the undisputed leader militarily. The clout of the US economically and financially has been impacted by the trade and financial polices of President Trump. The longer term impact of these policies remains to be seen.

What Do We Do Now?

Oct 5th, 2019 | By

In America, indeed in all of Western Civilization, we are experiencing what has been called “The Great Unraveling.” Evangelical author and educator, Duane Litfin, writes: “We live in a time of shifting sand. The avalanche of social, political and legal changes we’ve experienced has left many believers reeling.”



“Deaths Of Despair”: The Church, Compassion And Suicide

Sep 28th, 2019 | By

Economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton recently developed the phrase “deaths of despair” to describe the sudden rise in deaths from suicide, alcohol and drug abuse. Ross Douthat summarizes the details of a recent Senate Joint Economic Committee that charts the scale of this tragedy: “A doubling from 22.7 deaths of despair per 100,000 Americans in 2000 to 45.8 per 100,000 in 2017.” Such self-destroying trends in America are brutal facts we must all face.



America’s Unprincipled Leaders And The National Debt

Sep 21st, 2019 | By

Ten years ago a protest movement began in America called the Tea Party. The various tea parties that dotted the nation insisted on a set of demands: Stop President Obama’s health care law; tame the national debt; and restore responsible government. Several Republicans were elected under the Tea Party banner. But, the Tea Party movement is dead, no longer a factor in the Republican Party’s ideology.



Religious Confusion In Postmodern America

Sep 14th, 2019 | By

The practice of personal faith is based on one’s knowledge about God, His revelation and His redemptive plan centered in Jesus Christ. But in this Postmodern, Post-Christian era, religion has deteriorated into a matter of experiential, autonomous choice, not revelation. Compared to Western European countries, America remains a highly religious country. But religiosity does not equal sound doctrinal convictions. One of my favorite authors today is sociologist Christian Smith, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame. Smith has authored a series of books that superbly analyze the culture of American teens and emerging adults (18-30 years of age).
