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, […]
Today I read an article with the provocative title: “University To Offer ‘Gender-Open’ Restrooms.” It noted that non-specific gender bathrooms are now common-place on some 150 college campuses. It is easy to qualify this fact as a further desirable expression of civil rights, tolerance and freedom, but it is much more a striking piece of evidence of […]

Because God gave over his Son to bear the sin of the world as a sacrificial victim, He will return as Lord and Judge of the earth to set all things right.

Progressives are constantly seeking ways to silence Bible-believing Christians. Their most recent is “The Equality Act,” which was passed by Congress with the help of eight Republican congressmen. According to James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, this Act will “spell disaster for Americans…[for it] is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to finish off religious […]

Stockholm Syndrome can be defined as the “psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands.” Much of the compromise we observe in orthodoxy are a result of what I call cultural and theological Stockholm Syndrome. Contemporary unbelieving culture is our captor. […]
