Infanticide in a world without Christianity

Feb 8, 2019 by

By John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera, Christian Post: […] Johnston introduces us to the world in which Christianity was born, and eventually transformed.

What Today’s Christians Can Learn From Antiquity About Living In A Pagan World

Sep 30, 2016 by

by Greg Scandlen, The Federalist: Mollie Hemingway had a very nice article in The Federalist the other day in which she suggests that our society’s sexual obsession is a new religion. She writes, This new religion has fervent adherents and strict dogma, but it’s also true that the doctrines are still being formed. Now that marriage has been redefined away from sexual complementarity, the project to redefine the sexes themselves is moving forward. The doctrines governing biological reality,...
