We All Must Choose: God’s Way or Ours America, under God’s protection, has long enjoyed special status in the world. In part because our nation was founded on a unique Bill of Rights.

If It Feels Right…
“I mean, I guess what makes something right is how I feel about it.” The youth of this generation are not especially immoral, certainly no more than the generations that came before, according to David Brooks of the New York Times. But, “what’s disheartening is how bad they are at thinking and talking about moral… Read more »
The Bible: Why Our Youth Need to Know Its Truths
The Bible: Proven Truth. To be American is to embrace individual rights, right? Having been brought up to believe this, today’s young people are uncomfortable with the suggestion that there is only one universal truth. “You can believe that silliness,” they might reply. “But I’ll decide my own truth.” Because Christianity appears exclusive, many young people are uncomfortable… Read more »
Real Evangelicals Believe These 4 Things.

Intolerance in the Name of Tolerance
Intolerance From Those Who Demand It. Society would have us believe that God is a myth. That the Bible is a dusty, outdated book of stories that don’t apply to us today. That a universal truth can’t possibly exist, because every person’s viewpoint and lifestyle is valid and must be accepted. Many take issue with the bible suggesting… Read more »
Truth Never Void
For much of his life, Jallel knew little about Jesus. In fact, he considered himself an atheist. But at age 50, that began to change. In North Africa where he lives, Christ-centered resources like these are rare, restricted and sometimes even illegal. So it’s no surprise that he had never encountered Jesus.
Tolerance Doesn’t Mean Tolerance
“Tolerance”: Differing Definitions. Perhaps you’ve noticed that the Christian community is divided from modern culture when it comes to 1) what it means to be tolerant and intolerant; 2) who or what is to judge what is morally right and wrong; 3) what it means to accept without approving; 4) how we are to demonstrate… Read more »
True for You, But Not For Me: What is “Truth”?
If you are like most Christian parents, grandparents, or gatekeepers of young people (perhaps you’re a pastor, youth pastor, or Christian educator), you are no doubt perplexed by a younger generation of teens and twenty somethings who seem comfortable with a value system and set of beliefs that are often contrary to biblical standards.
