  • Government should leave life-changing to Jesus

    Last Tuesday, a New York appeals court ruled that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s effort to place a size limit on non-diet sodas, which had in turn been imposed by the local board of health, was unconstitutional and an excessive use of power.
    This determination to curb the city’s obesity epidemic brings up the question: “How much control should our government have over the lives of the citizens?”

  • Want to read some good news? Turn to Jesus

    When we open the paper, turn on the television or turn up the radio, there is a common outcome; more often than not, what we read, see or hear is bad news.
    After all, bad news is big business. We buy magazines because of the scandal advertised on the cover; we “stay tuned” often out of an innate curiosity about the calamities of others.
    Why is this? Because all of humanity by means of our own sin are part of the bad news. We write our own headline every day with our actions and our attitudes that are antithetical to God and his word.

  • Christians should be on offense about marriage

    Ideas are not formed in a vacuum. Every book we read, every song we hear, every thought we think has been influenced by someone else.
    I often say that it is rare today to find a purely original thought. It was 18th century philosopher Immanuel Kant who influenced Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel who influenced Karl Marx who influenced communist leaders Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, whose influences still affect our world today.
