Like chick flicks and nail salons, are #churches just not for men?

The absence of men in churches is not a new phenomenon. Several scholars and church leaders have noticed and addressed the trend.

The contents of a long-buried fascist document casting Mussolini as a Messiah-like figure have recently come to light through the efforts of Italian scholars.

Vision's David Hulme shares his insight of why he was not surprised by this recent find in a new blog post.

Even before September 11, 2001, #terrorism was a fact of life for much of the world. Must we accept that it will always be that way?

It’s often noted that leaders make use of religion to advance political agendas. Today, North Korea's Kim Il-sung's ruler cult is flourishing. #NorthKorea

Are the Scriptures—the Old and the New Testament—biased against women? #Bible

Old Testament and New Testament writers present a consistent view of God toward women, but it isn't what most people think.

In the face of growing religious extremism, it’s tempting to blame #religion itself for the #violence and wars that plague the world.

But is that fair? #violence #religion #BookReview #terrorism 
Is religion the primary cause of violence in human history? The authors of these three books say the answer is an emphatic no.

#Crime is a global social problem that is not easily solved: opinions about preventing it are sharply divided. Where do we begin?

In what has become known as the “Sermon on the Mount,” #Jesus told his followers that their lives should reflect biblical Christian values.

North Korea defiantly celebrated its fifth nuclear test Friday, claiming that it can now make warheads small enough to fit onto a missile and warning its "enemies" — specifically the United States — that it has the ability to counter any attack. #NorthKorea 
World leaders condemned North Korea's the test and said they would look for ways to punish Pyongyang.

In-depth coverage of current social issues. Insights into the philosophical, moral and ethical values in society today—health care, science and environmental news and articles.
Introduction
Vision evaluates the news of the day from a different perspective than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems facing humanity.

Where do you turn for trustworthy information in today’s world of sound bites and sensationalized news? With the average person being bombarded by literally thousands of messages every day from the ever expanding and fragmenting media, how is it possible to sort through the tremendous clutter and make sense of the conflicting voices?

With these questions in mind, the idea of Vision.org was born. We set out to create a Web site that would challenge readers to examine the historical and philosophical origins of today’s issues. Here you will find articles from our quarterly international companion journal Vision as well as other articles, interviews and information that help give direction in a difficult and confusing age.

While Vision.org examines the issues of today, it is not primarily a news site. Instead it seeks to evaluate the news of the day in a more in-depth way than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems with which humanity wrestles. In doing so, we affirm our commitment to accuracy and to honest treatment of the facts of every issue we explore. We are dedicated to presenting the subjects we address in a thorough, objective and balanced way.

But, like every other information or news source, we do have a certain bent. Vision.org brings insight into the complex social, moral and philosophical questions that confront society by examining them through the wisdom of an ancient source, the Bible. We believe that the principles contained in that book are still valid and can be applied to help solve the global, national and personal conflicts we face. But we do not proselytize, nor do we seek to convert anyone to any denomination or religious belief. Our only goal is to reestablish the Bible as a credible voice in the discussion of ideas. We hope you benefit from what you read, hear and see on this site, and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
