I remember hearing those words. Words I’ve heard spoken about other couples’ relationships, but never in a million years would they be uttered to describe mine. You see, I’m a pastor’s wife and somehow I had convinced myself that being married to a ...

‘My Pastor Is on the Ashley Madison List.’

This week, I’ve already written a couple of posts on the Ashley Madison hack and information leak because pastors, Christian leaders, and families are facing devastating revelation and the after-effects of public sin.

I've had many conversations with pastors this week about the Ashley Madison list. Some have members on the list, and some are on the list. Slowly their names are coming out, and it's heartbreaking to many.

Scripture makes it clear: we reap what we sow. For many today, this truth resounds amidst devastation.

This week, we’ve found that it’s not as simple as AshleyMadison.com would like its (former) users to think. “Life is short. Have an affair.” So they say.

Get caught. Lose your reputation. Lose your spouse. So they omit.

Cognitive Dissonance with Life and Death: Thoughts on Planned Parenthood

We must grieve for lives lost at the hands of radical Islam, but we must pray for the Islamists, too.
3 Things Christians Should Consider in Light of Radical Islam
Lillian Wagdy / Wikipedia

The West is at the front end of what will almost certainly be a multi-decadal war against radical Islamism. We saw so again this week, as violence marred Chattanooga, TN.

Progressive Christians promised us they would be prophetic voices among the Democratic party. Where are you?
Where are the Mainline and Progressive Evangelical Voices Speaking Up after that Planned Parenthood Tragedy?

The Planned Parenthood video has received (and deserved) wide coverage. It should been seen by all who can handle watching it. Actually, if you care about justice, I think you should take the time to watch the whole video. The entire unedited version is available, despite ...

Try dancing around the reality all you want, exchanging human tissue for money is a "sale."
Planned Parenthood, Selling Body Parts, and Appropriate Outrage

There are things not to be outraged about, and there are things to be outraged about.

Watching people have discussions about how best to kill and dismember an unborn baby would be one of the things to be outraged about.

Once again, a public tragedy presents a peacemaking moment, and many of us miss it out of fear of the race conversation.
