Grace

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Cultural Conservatives Have Barely Begun to Fight

Monday, April 27th, 2015

By David French

An atmosphere of gloom and despair pervades some cultural-conservative circles, and, at first glance, it’s easy to understand why. There’s no question that hysterical public assaults on Christians or others who dissent from leftist sexual orthodoxy are increasing in volume and frequency.

Going with Jesus into Our Fears

Friday, April 24th, 2015

By Eric Metaxas

My colleague, author Stan Guthrie, says something similar in his book “All That Jesus Asks.” Reflecting on Jesus’ command not to fear those who kill the body but to fear God instead, Stan writes, “Fear will come, no matter what.

Jesus says that since we are going to fear anyway, it makes more sense to fear God, not men.”

The 368-page paperback of All That Jesus Asks has been discontinued by Baker Books and is becoming hard to find, but if you’d like a signed copy for $10 (list price is $20) plus postage, email me at guthsc[at]att.net. Thanks!

Don’t complain that all you get in the mail are bills and junk mail. Write a letter, put a stamp on it, and mail it.

Rooting

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Don’t you think that if, say, Tim Tebow had the public profile of Michael Sam rather than as the outspoken Christian that he is, that the press would be rooting him on in his comeback attempt? Of course you do.
