May 17, 2019 by

By Joe Garecht, Public Discourse: It’s not enough to teach our children that life is sacred from the moment of conception until natural death. We must also teach them to declare the truths of our faith in the public square. Inside the loving embrace of the family, the faithful need to raise a new generation of Christians that stands up for life and boldly proclaims their faith, understanding that no one, not even an elected official, has the right to stand in their way. In all honesty, I was...

GAFCON AND ACC-17: A Response to Andrew Atherstone

May 16, 2019 by

by Stephen Noll, Contending Anglican: At the end of April (2019) two church bodies met, the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-17) in Hong Kong and the Gafcon Primates in Sydney. The Gafcon Primates published a Communiqué of their meeting.

Fortunately, this year Andrew Atherstone has published a separate analysis titled “What Really Happened at...

Equity: When the Left Goes Too Far

May 16, 2019 by

What We Are Really Up Against – Time To Get the Big Picture

May 4, 2019 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: Most people do not think ahead, do not look at the big picture, and do not consider the long-term. Most at best are only thinking ahead to what they will have for dinner, or what fun they will get up to on the weekend. Sadly many Christians can be included in this myopia and lack of vision. I already wrote about this in terms of the culture wars: billmuehlenberg.com/2016/04/18/big-picture-long-term/ Here I want to discuss this in terms of the mega-spiritual...
