Newsweek magazine has a cover story about "the war on Christians" in the Muslim world. In Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan - and many other countries - Christians are suffering persecution at the hands of Muslims. And it definitely is on the rise. While I appreciate that Newsweek is highlighting this, I take issue with the title of the piece: "The Rise of Christophobia." Phobia? This mislabeling something as a "phobia" has been done before, and it ...

Richard Dawkins says no. “We don’t need to get morals from our religions … We don’t want to find morals from the holy books. We can have our own enlightened secular values.” We do need God, however, to account for the existence of morals. Evolution - no natural process - can do that. Morals are immaterial, universal values. They aren't physical things so science can't study them and natural processes can't explain them. There's no mechanism in na...

Atheists will frequently place all concepts of gods into the same category, saying things like, “I just believe in one less god than you do,” or, “As we learn more and more about nature from science, ...

One of the most offensive claims of Christianity to modern people is that Jesus is the only way to be reconciled to God. We're encouraged within the church and without to update the Gospel to a contemporary world. Drop this offensive element because we have to make it more palatable to modern people. I heard Timothy Keller make a great point. It's rather obvious, but I've never heard anyone make it plainly before. Christianity was born in a plura...

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just struck down California's Prop 8—an amendment to the Constitution that defines marriage as one man and one woman. From the ruling: Altho...

I've been thinking of how unhelpful the term "human fetus" is. It reverses our usual grammatical way of speaking about a stage of development, so it perpetuates fuzzy ideas about the identity of the unborn. We say "adult human," not "human adult," because that is the clearest way to speak. Saying "human adult," "dog adult," "horse adult," etc. would make it sound as if an "adult" is a type of creature in and of itself, with the qualifier telling ...

In his article, "Why We Need Jesus," Michael Horton explains why the nature of the gospel as a proclamation of historical truth both surprises and challenges us. Our culture defines reason as naturalism, and so it allows reasonable people to be religious only as long as they either confine their religious claims to the realm of private opinion (i.e., based on personal revelations or ideas that apply only to them), or focus on general revelation t...
