Preparing Sons For The Future

| October 25, 2014

By R.C. Sproul Jr. of Highland Ministries Don’t follow the folly of the world. An excellent question. Too often we in the church follow the folly of the world in taking a passive approach to the future. We tend to believe all we have to do is show up, and if things don’t work out […]

Are the Kids Really Alright?

| October 14, 2014

Editor’s Note: You’ll probably get a headache reading this and the headache is case in point. We’re looking in the wrong place for answers (science), going to great lengths to do so, and as always looking at data after the fact. After the damage is done. Don’t be confused by the swap of terms, ‘data’ […]

The Manipulation of Feminists to Man’s Own Ends

| October 14, 2014

By Dr. R.C. Sproul,Jr., published by Highlands Ministries Root Causes of Abortion You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain James 4:2. Seeking to stop the slaughter of the unborn by merely declaiming abortion is like building a bridge by starting in the middle. James reminds us that we murder because […]

The Sacred Walls of Home

| October 11, 2014

The benediction that falls upon the homes of a country is like the gentle rain that descends among the hills. A thousand springs are fuller afterward, and along the banks of a thousand streamlets flowing through the valleys the grass is greener and the flowers pour out richer fragrance. Homes are the springs among the […]

Don’t Waste Your Time Raising Children

| October 7, 2014

Another great one from Kelly at Generation Cedar I think I finally agree with the feminists that raising children is a waste of time. After all, anyone really can do it. So why not let a paid day care worker handle the messes, settle the squabbling, feed the babies, change the diapers and keep them happy so you can do something […]

Theology which Confronts the Sexual Revolution and Moral Upheaval

| September 23, 2014

By Albert Mohler Western society is currently experiencing what can only be described as a moral revolution. Our society’s moral code and collective ethical evaluation on a particular issue has undergone not small adjustments but a complete reversal. That which was once condemned is now celebrated, and the refusal to celebrate is now condemned. What […]

Breaking the Silence: Redefining Marriage Hurts Women Like Me – and Our Children

| September 22, 2014

The push to present a positive image of same-sex families has hidden the devastation on which many are built. We must stand for marriage—and for the precious lives that marriage creates. Every time a new state redefines marriage, the news is full of happy stories of gay and lesbian couples and their new families. But […]

A Tale of Two Fathers: Silas Marner on the True Meaning of Fatherhood

| September 16, 2014

Randall Smith recently published a two-part Public Discourse essay on Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. Smith criticizes the radical argument put forth in the novel’s trial scene by a sophisticated city lawyer who claims that Fyodor Pavlovich is not truly a father because his son Dmitri feels no loyalty to him. The lawyer argues that, even if Dmitri murdered Fyodor, […]

An Evangelical Defense of Traditional Marriage

| September 13, 2014

This piece is a response to an op-ed by Brandan Robertson on Time.com Tuesday, “Evangelicals for Marriage Equality: The Story Behind Our Launch.” I eagerly await the young evangelical that finally convinces me that the Bible and human history are wrong on marriage and that justice requires that both Christianity and society bestow marriage on […]

‘I wish I could have prevented my girlfriend’s abortion’

| September 12, 2014

It seems little has been said about what men suffer when their children are murdered by the mother carrying them. One man tells his story of fighting to persuade a woman enraptured by the promises of the dealt culture, that is feminism and women’s liberation movement, and her supposed right to choose. From The Telegraph, […]

The Illusion of Neutrality

| September 12, 2014

The Nude Beach Principle On the impossibility: consider the effects of a permission that radically alters the nature of the context in which the action is permitted. We might call this the Nude Beach Principle. Suppose that Surftown has one beautiful beach, where young and old, boys and girls, single people and whole families, have […]

Is Marriage a Form of Prostitution?

| September 5, 2014

By Angela Shanahan at Mercatornet The tired old ideas of ageing feminists are being discredited by a younger generation. When I heard that an Australian social commentator called Jane Caro had compared “traditional” marriage to prostitution on the popular TV program Q&A, I thought, “Oh, here we go again!” That trope of feminist literature is almost as […]

End The Three-Month Wait For Sharing A Pregnancy

| August 28, 2014

The Duggar family, of reality TV fame, are rarely described as “brave.” They have 19 children (“and counting,” as the title of their reality show declares) and are thus objects of fascination if not scorn. Yet the seemingly mundane act from one of the bunch recently did, in a strikingly quiet way, demonstrate a bit […]

How strong families help the economy

| August 13, 2014

The government will never provide for you as well as a stable two-parent family will. That’s the summary of the Heritage Foundation’s first annual report on America’s societal and economic trends, released Wednesday. The 2014 Index of Culture and Opportunity states that while abortion and violent crime are on the decline, the marriage rate is […]

Who is Being Rude Anyway?

| August 4, 2014

by Israel Wayne over at Christian Worldview Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ve heard the smash pop hit, “Rude” by the group Magic!. It speaks about a young man, seeking permission to marry a traditional man’s daughter. He is turned down by the young lady’s father, but rather than being rebuffed, he retorts […]
