Nov 15, 2016 by

by David Robertson, theweeflea: As we talk about this subject we need to realise that we are dealing with individual stories. This is not theory.  This is not political ideology.  We are talking about real people.  Last week I watched a BBC Scotland programme about individuals who were transgender.  It was one of the saddest and most depressing things I had seen for a long time. Human  beings made in the image of God, confused, hurting and being offered a solution based on falsehood and a...

From Father to Son — J.R.R. Tolkien on Sex

Nov 2, 2016 by

by Albert Mohler: The astounding popularity of J.R.R. Tolkien and his writings–magnified many times over by the success of the “Lord of the Rings” films–has ensured that Tolkien’s fantasy world of moral meaning stands as one of the great literary achievements of our times. In some sense, Tolkien was a man born out of time. A philologist at heart, Tolkien was most at home in the world of ancient ages, even as he witnessed the barbarism and horrors of the 20th century. Celebrated as a popular...

Human Sexuality: Defined by the Mystery of the Trinity

Oct 18, 2016 by

by Dr Peter Jones, The Truth Xchange: In our time there is a rising acceptance of one’s right to self-define, or (to put it more religiously), to self-realize. Expressed provocatively, this becomes: “I am whatever I say I am and you must accept my assertion and behave accordingly.” In his legal opinion on Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Chief Justice Kennedy described this self-definition more elegantly as “the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of...

Obsessed with sex?

Aug 11, 2016 by

by Peter J Leithart, First Things: Christians are often accused of being obsessed with sexual sin. Why can’t two people, of whatever sex, do whatever they please in the enclosure of their own room? Who is hurt if a guy wants to get off looking at tantalizing pictures and videos on his computer? What’s the big deal if college students hook up, unhook, and then hook up again with someone? Our jitteriness about sex exposes our prudery and hostility to life. It shows that Christians are all...
