As Christians, we are to be “in the world but not of it.” But what does that mean exactly? It can actually be a pretty confusing concept if we don’t give it some careful thought. Does being “in the world” mean that we hang out at bars and watch...
Abercrombie & Fitch refuses to make women’s clothes in XL and XXL sizes. Why? In the words of Abercrombie CEO Michael Jeffries: "Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends…A lot of people don't belong...
