An unexpected take on:
Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you.

Interesting take.  I like the idea of not judging but I wouldn't want to excuse the "pig" from trampling the pearls.  

John 7:24 Jesus says: “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

even if you feel like you’re the odd person out, don’t stifle your concerns. Simply express them respectfully. It turns out this small dissent can provide powerful permission to the silent concerns of others.
“If your best buddy jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?” Too often, the answer is yes. Patients die because nurses and doctors who know better go along with bad decisions. Planes crash because...

Great advice (to me) on dealing with people - especially mean people. I tend to think their meanness must be obvious to everyone else. Not so.

While so many of us are searching for the next noteworthy part of our lives, we are missing out on worshiping the Lord in our day-to-day activities.

Sometimes living out the Christian life is to simply live quiet lives of obedience, to embrace our routines, and to glorify God daily in our jobs, relationships, and in the menial day-to-day tasks.


Wondering how God works in our ordinary lives? Titus 3:14 shows us how God uses ordinary work and caring for our families and communities.

In both Dred Scott and Windsor, the Court’s legal analysis was transparently result-oriented: the justices wanted a particular result, and manipulated the law to reach the outcome they thought preferable as a social-policy matter. In both cases, the majority’s “reasoning” wanders aimlessly before finally settling into the same oft-discredited judicial invention of “substantive due process”—the idea that it is simply morally wrong, or mean, for a democracy to deny a legal right or status conferred under the law of a different jurisdiction. In both cases, the majority opinions were subject to devastating dissents, and they produced greatly divided public reaction. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Dred Scott and Windsorare two peas from the same judicial-activist pod.
The structure and logic of the legal arguments made for nationwide judicial imposition of same-sex marriage are remarkably similar to the arguments made by those who argued for the judicial imposition of slavery nationwide. Will the Republican Party produce another Lincoln to stand against them?

I don't think it's a bad thing to be a Silver Rule Christian, but Jesus clearly instructs us to take a step further and be Golden Rule Christians whose faith is a verb.
Here in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, we find the origin of the Golden Rule. Even among those who know nothing about Jesus and are indifferent to his teaching, these words are familiar. I wish you could know my wife, Terri. She's the Golden Rule with skin on. Any of you who read this and know her ...

RIP Lyle Schaller. Thank you.
No one may have advised more churches in the 20th century. Mine was one.

There are a number of plausible theories about the new research on generosity and prosperity.

I have come to the conclusion that Facebook is a lifestyle magazine featuring my friends, who are doing it better than me.
Constantly checking Facebook to see what your friends are doing could lead to some serious depression. A recent study conducted by researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Bradley Universit...

The twist in this report is interesting.
Interesting item starting to circulate on the web tonight like on AndrewSullivan.com… On 60 Minutes, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, was asked about rumors that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, is a Muslim. She took a hardline stance against the rumor…then seemed to walk it back, injecting a note of ambivalence. Watch it HERE. Here’s how the exchange went. STEVE KROFT: You don’t believe that Senator Obama’s a Muslim? HILLARY CLINTON: Of course not. I m...
