Why Did God Make Me A Lesbian?

There is an unfortunately tense debate in America on homosexuality and, thanks to the rise of politically correct intolerance in the public square,  it is increasingly difficult to move the discussion in constructive directions.

Congress is one of the major focuses in the debate and congressional staff on every side of the issues are called upon every day by their bosses to make tough and significant decisions and recommendations about legislation, regulation and positioning. Careers can rise and fall on those decisions and recommendations.

NBC’s ‘Cold Case Detective’ Explains Why He Is A Christian

Imagine that you are veteran congressional investigator with years of experience digging into documents, probing witnesses, weighing evidence and sifting claims and counter-claims.

Would that be a good background for evaluating the credibility of the claims of Jesus Christ to be the only way to Heaven and the reliability of the Bible as the word of God? You would certainly have many of the most critical skills required for such an investigation, no?

Meet J. Warner Wallace. No, Wallace is not a former congressional investigator, but he is one of the world’s most respected experts at solving the toughest crime cases, the ones that have gone unsolved for years.

What If Jesus Is The Only Way To Heaven?

It’s a truism heard often these days that “all roads lead to God, whether you believe in Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Confucius, the Hindu pantheon, Bahai or …” on and on it goes.

As it happens, Jesus is the only one of this all-star lineup of claimants to deity who claimed absolute exclusivity, as He did at John 14:6, saying “I am the way and the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but through me.”

What if Jesus is right? Professor Sean McDowell has the answer to that question. (Photo by bruce mars on Unsplash)

Does Christian Hypocrisy Prove Christianity Is False?

Perhaps you’ve heard it before: “Christians are just a bunch of hypocrites!” Or maybe this version: “Christianity can’t be true because so many Christians are fakes.”

It’s a popular claim, one that has led many people to close their minds to even considering the growing mountains of credible evidence for the reality of the empty tomb of Jesus and His Resurrection.

The issue has special significance for men and women working at all levels on the Hill because of the high value placed on authenticity and shame attached to hypocrisy. Continue reading “Does Christian Hypocrisy Prove Christianity Is False?”

So You Think That Neat ‘Multiverse’ Theory Explains It All …

No, when people talk about the “Multiverse” theory, they aren’t talking about music with a lot of stanzas or choruses. Odds are, they are talking about more basic issues like “how did the universe get here” and “why are there human beings.”

You can’t talk about those kinds of issues on Capitol Hill or anywhere else these days without somebody, sooner rather than later, confidently pronouncing something like “our universe is just one of many universes that are constantly evolving and forever changing.”

And hey, if Neil deGrasse Tyson believes in the multiverse theory, it must be true, right? I mean, right? Well, no, as a matter of fact, allow me to introduce Regis Nicoll and a fascinating analysis of the countless problems with the multiverse theory.

Would You Go To Jail For Your Basic Beliefs, Like This Chinese Pastor?

Pastor Wang Yi of Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu, China, is in jail, accused by the Communist government in Beijing of “inciting subversion of state power.”

The pastor absolutely denies the charges, which are based on the fact he preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ, including His claim to be “the King of Kings” and His injunction to “render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and the things that are God’s to God.”
