It’s Time to Rise

What a difference three days can make. On Good Friday, the apostles went home dejected and afraid. Their dreams of God’s kingdom inaugurated, evil vanquished, and peace on earth, bled and died on a wooden cross. The twisted and marred body of their rabbi was buried in a tomb and placed under guard. This wasn’t…

What Does It Mean to Be Pro-Life

What does “pro-life” mean? Jesus cared about all marginalized people, not just a few. As a Christian, then, my ethic should be broad and inclusive. I should do something to resist human trafficking, alleviate poverty, promote fatherhood, and welcome genuine refugees. But it doesn’t follow that the operational objectives of the pro-life movement must be…

Americans should NEVER be forced by their government to promote messages conflicting with their beliefs. However, the State of California has passed a coercive new law mandating that pro-life pregnancy centers and their staff and volunteers advertise tax-funded abortions.

Planned Parenthood's Killer Workout

No one has done a better job persuading people to defund Planned Parenthood than, well, Planned Parenthood. In video after undercover video, the organization has been its own worst enemy in the fight for taxpayer dollars. Out of their own mouths, they’ve let Americans into a dark world where killing is currency and empires are…

Christianity Without Christ?

Paul Tillich, the noted existentialist theologian, traveled to Asia to hold conferences with various Buddhist thinkers. He was studying the significance of religious leaders to the movements they had engendered. Tillich asked a simple question. “What if by some fluke, the Buddha had never lived and turned out to be some sort of fabrication? What…

A Failed Abortion Saved My Life

Twenty-seven years ago, an infamous New Orleans abortionist told a woman she should let her baby girl die on the delivery table. The baby, born at 26.5 weeks, wasn’t breathing. To the doctor, the child’s life was meaningless and wouldn’t amount to anything. He was so certain of her worthlessness that he told the mother her child would…
