Are you supposed to have sex at work? I guess it depends on your profession, but for most of us the answer is “no.” Why then is corporate America obsessed with training about sex? As described in several recent columns by Mike Adams (beginning June 16, 2011), I was fired as a vendor by Cisco […]

We have had several conversations on this site over the years on the subject of macroevolution. Many of the comments affirming macroevolution have come from a very loyal and courteous participant here, atheist “Tim D” (full name Tim Duck). I offered Tim some posting space (rather than just in the comments section) to make a […]
I often read books merely for content. It is rare that one provides pleasure as well, and it is the rarest of books that adds relevance and inspiration. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, has it all. Eric Metaxas has done a masterful job in his definitive biography on Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Eric is a great interview […]
When we don’t study the historical and literary context of a passage, we often draw the wrong conclusions. Such is the case with some atheists who complain about the apparent immorality of God’s commands in the Old Testament. Dr. William Lane Craig answers several questions about this (and his debate with atheist Sam Harris) on […]
In the Declaration of Independence, there are several theistic (not merely deistic) concepts. These include: A Creator, God-given moral rights, The Supreme Judge of the World (implying a day of Judgment), Divine Providence (God intervening in the world) and the “sacred honor” of the founders. Sadly, most Americans have never read the Declaration of Independence. […]
On “CrossExamined with Frank Turek” on American Family Radio on June 4 Frank discussed the topic “What’s the Truth About Hell?” With Rob Bell’s recent book, “Love Wins” the questions about eternity and punishment have been “hot” topics in Christianity. A number of these issues were addressed in the ratio show. The audio archive will […]
It’s often easy to spot militant atheists who attend my presentation called I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. They usually sit with their arms folded and scowls on their faces. During a recent presentation at Michigan State, I knew I’d get push back from one such scowling student sitting to my right. […]
My shocking and eye-opening interview with former U.S. Marine and FBI Counter-terrorism officer, John Guandolo, airs May 7 and May 8 on our Radio program. You can download for free the entire report that Mr. Guandolo co-authored here. Go to http://strategicengagement.org to learn more about Mr. Guandolo and the work he and others are doing […]
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mk 10:45). That includes you and me. Have you accepted the payment he made? He is risen.
Shehbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in the Pakistani cabinet, was assassinated on March 2 by Muslim terrorists for opposing Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. As he reveals in this short interview shortly before his murder, Mr. Bhatti chose courage over compromise for the cause of Christ and his persecuted Christian brothers and sisters.
Two High Court judges in the UK have ruled that a Christian couple can no longer provide a home to foster kids under the age of ten. Why? Because the couple does not agree with homosexual practice! The judges declared that they were “secular.” This ruling is a kind of atheist inquisition. Contrary to popular […]
Today is the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, one the most famous cases in Supreme Court history. As we reflect on 52 million dead since the decision– and are reminded of the horrific reality of abortion by the discovery of the abortuary in Philadelphia (click here if you can stomach reading the grand […]
Why are atheists angry at God? Joe Carter, web editor of First Things, cites studies recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that those who don’t believe in God tend to be the people most angry with Him. (Click here for the entire article.) Of course, we cannot take aggregate data and […]
Dr. Gary Habermas, world-renowned expert on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, discusses losing his 43 year old wife to stomach cancer. He has a perspective you might not expect. Profound.
The United States Congress was in a rare joint session. All 435 representatives and 100 senators were in attendance, and the C-SPAN-TV cameras were rolling. The members were gathered together to hear a speech by a descendant of George Washington. But what they thought would be a polite speech of patriotic historical reflections quickly turned […]
UNC Chapel Hill Professor Bart Ehrman has made quite a name for himself as a critic of the New Testament documents. The conclusions he draws in his popular best-selling book Misquoting Jesus cast doubt on whether we can accurately reconstruct the original New Testament documents. Ehrman appears to be at odds with most New Testament […]
When one judge overturned the will of more then seven million Californians last week in Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, he listed 80 supposed “findings of fact” (FF) as evidence that Proposition 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Many of those 80 findings are not facts at all. They’re lies or distortions. […]
Two Christian graduate students at public universities (Eastern Michigan University and Augusta State University) are being expelled from their counseling programs for their religious and moral objections to homosexual behavior. One case has been decided in favor of EMU (and will be appealed) and the other case has just been filed. The Alliance […]
As predicted by all reasonable people who knew that Obama’s executive order was disingenuous, elective abortion will now be paid for with your tax dollars. The Obama administration has just approved it. This is truly a “moral injustice of the first order.” Here are the details. By the way, I don’t merely object to abortion […]
(This column first appeared on Townhall.com) Elena Kagan called the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy “a moral injustice of the first order.” A moral injustice of the first order? Where on her moral hierarchy is a real “first order” injustice like murder? Not high enough. For Elena Kagan, sexual standards that protect military readiness […]
John Zogby recently interviewed nearly 5,000 American adults and asked them eight basic questions about economics. The eight questions have easily provable answers. Here are the bottom line results published in a Wall Street Journal article titled “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader:” the more conservative people did the best and the more liberal […]
