[Editor’s Note: And again, reposting the repost! Be sure to click on CCEL’s link to Greg Bahnsen’s “Homosexuality: A Biblical View” at the end of this article and read what is available.  Originally posted nearly a year ago today on January 25th 2014.

Who Killed the American Family? By Phyllis Schlafly

| June 26, 2015

Commentator Micah Clark caught lesbian journalist Masha Gessen on a radio program admitting that homosexual activists are not merely trying to access the institution of marriage — they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate marriage. Here are Gessen’s words: It’s a no-brainer that [homosexual activists] should have the right to marry, but I also […]

AiG: A Match Made in Heaven

| June 26, 2015

Many women have the impression that the Genesis account of Adam and Eve imposed a humiliating, subservient role on women. Is this really the case? That the man and the woman are created in God’s image signifies more than likeness. It also conveys the notion of representative rule, both of them exercising dominion over the […]

The “It Can Wait” Phenomenon

| June 21, 2015

It’s a common refrain, isn’t it? We see a young couple enjoying the newlywed life and through laughter encourage them to get their life in order before they have kids, because we all know kids change everything. Or we meet a soon-to-be college graduate, with a promising career ahead of her, and lightly chasten her […]

Fathers Are Not Idiots

| June 19, 2015

I’m not a greeting card snob and I don’t spend hours hunting for the perfect one. But after 15 minutes and reading dozens, I had a really hard time choosing one card for my dad and my kids for their father, that didn’t send this message loud and clear: Dads are idiots. Read the rest here

How To Practice Biblical Discipline

| June 18, 2015

Most American parents do not know how to parent. Some perpetuate patterns of anger and unbiblical violence against their children. A larger number of parents fail entirely to discipline, to admonish, and to lead their children. In both cases the results are disastrous, and they are all around us — angry children, rebellious children, wild […]

Mercatornet: A Fresh Voice For Marriage

| June 17, 2015

Is fighting for traditional marriage and against same-sex marriage worthwhile? Ryan T. Anderson, a 33-year-old fellow at the Heritage Foundation, thinks so and is crisscrossing the US to persuade people that they are not irrational or homophobic if they think that marriage should be reserved for a man and a woman. On Wednesday, the Washington […]

How Do We Identify A Healthy Culture?

| June 12, 2015

How should we judge the health of a culture? How do we bring together, in a healthy way, young men and young women, so that they will learn how to forbear with the shortcomings and be grateful for the virtues of the other sex; so that they marry and then have children, raising them in the haven […]

Generation Cedar’s Kelly Crawford on Not Being Quiverfull

| June 10, 2015

They wanted to tell my perspective, in light of the Duggar’s recent presence in the news, of what it means to be “Quiverfull.” It was a radio show that airs on NPR. My first thought was to decline. Publicity typically doesn’t go well for people and the farther we can stay away from it, probably, […]

Seewald: Grace Greater Than Our Sin

| May 24, 2015

There is blood in the water and the sharks are in a feeding frenzy. Finally, the Duggar family’s opponents have found what they have been eagerly waiting for: shocking revelations of scandal by Jim Bob and Michelle’s firstborn son, Josh. There are many who seem shocked that a child from a Christian family would do […]

Israel Wayne: The Perfect Family Syndrome

| May 23, 2015

When I attend Christian conferences, I like to sit in on as many of the other speakers as I can. Sometimes, my workshop schedules prohibit this, but I like to check out the ideas of others. One session I attended featured a woman speaker addressing other parents. After a few minutes, she made the statement, […]

The Cost of Children

| May 6, 2015

It is common to hear people talk about the huge expense of raising children. Yet, most figures reported about how much it costs to raise a child are based on what parents actually spend, not what children actually need – which is a pretty big distinction. Read the rest here
