Pro-Life Education

[Note: This is an exhortation I gave to the teachers and staff of White Horse Hall this morning.] It’s been an interesting summer. Kicked off with the Obergefell decision mandating homosexual marriage, and then David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress began dropping undercover sting videos on Planned Parenthood. The videos have confirmed what…

Topple the Idols

One of the tactics of warfare is pursuit. A decisive victory can be turned into an effective truce if an army fails to pursue a retreating enemy. Judges records the failure of the tribes of Israel to capitalize on the victory God was giving them. While the enemies may have been strong and fierce and…

How the Rejection of Jesus Sets Us Free

Our fear of rejection is ultimately our fear of death. It’s our fear of being left on the outside, being left out forever. It’s our fear of insignificance, our fear of not mattering, of not being noticed. So many live their lives alternating between fear and ambition, desperately wanting to belong, to fit in, to…

Feeling Rightly

One of the things that sin does to people is warps their ability to feel rightly. God gave us emotions; they are a gift from him like our other senses meant to teach us about the world. We feel pain, a hot stove, pressure, and it teaches us about what is wise, what is safe,…

His Word Endures

Psalm 100 famously says: “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless His name.

The Ground of Christian Resistance

One of the blessings we have as Christians is the opportunity to stand against evil. As the gangrene of relativism continues to rot out the soul of Western civilization, the ability to stand against evil is crumbling. Where western sensibilities still line up with God’s Word, it’s purely accidental and rarely intentional. People can given…

The Politics of Celebration

Right after urging the Philippians to remember that their citizenship is in heaven, Paul reminds them that this means they are called to rejoice always. This is because rejoicing and celebration are always community events, public events, political events. In the first century, Christians were surrounded by celebrations: the old Jewish feasts, Greek and Roman…

Hope for Sexual Glory

Logos School Assembly: Life Between the Sexes Introduction There are basically only two options for facing and interpreting what it means to be human, and specifically what it means to be male and female members of the human race.
