In 1973, Karl Menninger wrote Whatever Became of Sin? He was responding to a cultural move away from any concept of moral transgression. The sociologists and psychologists of the day redefined what Western Christianity had always considered as sinful fruit of dark and hardened hearts. Instead, they argued that those effects, whether individual or corporate, […]
Cities. For some the word evokes thoughts of skyscrapers, taxi cabs, subway systems, and an integrated nexus of life, lifestyle, and labor. For others the word brings to mind a hurried pace they would better off avoid, a cultural environment where people are reduced to business machinery and secularism rules from an unimpeachable iron throne. […]
Recently, Dr. Richard Dawkins, the world famous evolutionary biologist and militant atheist, in response to a video and article on “clean meat” tweeted the following: Before we focus on the Dawkin’s words, we should step back and better understand exactly what clean meat is.

In the recent article, “The Three Hebrew Words that Describe Our Time,” opinion writer Martin E. Marty puts his finger on the underlying issue in our current climate of cultural chaos.

A few weeks ago, I got up early to spend time the Word before breakfast. I couldn’t concentrate. Two of my girls were already dressed and in the kitchen, getting their own breakfast in time to get off early to school.

The culture’s definition of […]
