We have all seen it happen. We watch with excitement as an awesome Christian boy and an awesome Christian girl begin hanging out more and more. They gradually show signs of being interested in each other, and before you know it, you have a new couple on your hands....
Yesterday, I introduced the topic of suffering. Specifically, I raised the age old question, “Why does God allow his children to suffer?” And although I have spent a lot of time looking into the Bible’s answer to this question, in yesterday’s post I explored one of three similes that...
Yesterday we were horrified to learn about another tragedy, this time in Boston—explosions, fear, injuries, and deaths. When things like this happen, we ask ourselves questions that we already know the answers to. Why? (Because the world is fallen.) When will we stop doing this to each other? (When the...
People watching is fascinating because each person is uniquely crafted by God and people bear the image of God. This is true of every person, whether they have been redeemed or not. While it’s true that sin taints every aspect of our existence and therefore causes us to resemble...
We used to think that technology would solve all of our problems. During a recent trip to Disneyland I got to thinking about how cool “Tomorrowland” must have been back in its day. It’s funny to think that when Disneyland opened in 1955, this is what they thought the...
Toward the end of his letter to the Philippians, Paul comes right out and says that he wants something about them—and by extension, something about us—to be known to everyone. He wants us to be famous. But for what? It’s probably not what you’re thinking. “Let your gentleness be known...
Over the last two posts, I have discussed the suggestion, published in The Journal of Medical Ethics, that parents (or the state) should be able to kill their infants if they discover a defect or hardship that would have led them to have aborted the baby before birth. Much...
Like most everyone who heard the news of this past weekend, I was angered and appalled at the news of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling's (alleged) racist conversation with his former girlfriend V. Stiviano. His words are almost unbelievable and unbearable to listen to. I don't believe I have a...
For the last fifteen years, I've pretty much had only one answer to the question, "How are you doing?" It's always: "Tired." Or maybe, "Busy, tired. But good!" As far as I can tell, this is the standard answer to the question. How are Americans doing? They're tired. When I started...
There is something addicting about home improvement shows. HGTV can keep my wife and I propped lifelessly on the couch for hours. We Americans love to think about making our homes bigger, better, and more appealing (read: envy-inducing). But all of that time spent dreaming about improving our own...
