George HW Bush's final words

The final words of President George H. W. Bush tell us a lot about the kind of man he was, and especially the kind of father he was.

Let's help Lauren Daigle rather than condemn her

We've seen this show before. A Christian recording artist (or author) becomes very popular, reaching beyond a typical Church audience and becoming popular in the larger world. He (or she) is then asked about homosexuality and fudges the answer. In turn, the Church quickly condemns (him or her). Can we do better this time around?

The Santa Clausification of Christmas

I need to begin with a disclaimer: I am a fan of Santa Claus. I have fond memories of writing wish-list letters to him as a child and bringing our sons to visit him at the mall when they were children.

Merry Christmas? Bah Humbug!

For some, even Christians, this time of year and the reflection it brings is not one of joy, happiness, and celebration, but one of loss and heartache. We think on friends and family we've lost, and sometimes we wonder why, or even what we could have done to prevent it. When we hear "Merry Christmas," it rubs salt in the wound and all we want to reply is "Bah Humbug!"

Twitter declares war on biology

Men are different than women. Medical science understands this. Genetic studies understand this. Common sense understands this. But it appears Twitter no longer understands this.

Split the Baby!

My challenge to us all during this wonderful, Christmas holiday is to keep ourselves "prayed up" and be alert for Satan's attacks on our witness and our faith. And don't lose your mind and your witness all at the same time.
