By Charis Hillman Brown, Charisma News: “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me, God. Amen.” —Martin Luther I lean libertarian politically. I’m not sure why the government has any say in marriage—that which was founded as a religious institution for thousands of years.

Is this the missing ingredient in your spiritual life?

Jul 21, 2015 by

By David Baker, Christian Today: “They went out and proclaimed that all should repent…” (Mark 6:12) Imagine, just for a moment, that you are attending a church service, or watching a TV chat show – and a special guest is announced.

What did the New Testament writers mean when they talked about porneia, moikheia, malakia? Is there something crashingly new about the capacity or incapacity of modern human beings...

Jun 21, 2015 by

By Julian Mann, The Conservative Woman: If the man or woman in the street were asked to come up with a new set of Ten Commandments to suit modern society, what do you think people might come up with? Thou shalt not insist that the god you believe in is the only god. Thou shalt not be old-fashioned in your attitudes, particularly about marriage and family life.
