Time to Do Something (for Christians)
A lot of Christians see our country in serious need, and they
don’t see the answer in politics or Presidents. 
They believe God has to do something, and they are praying for a
miracle. But when you look at the history of revivals or miracles, they

stopping gun violence
A recent Sun-Times reader again called for the government to
get rid of guns as the way to solve the high rate of gun violence in
Chicago.  We are forgetting history when
we do this.  First of all, James Madison noted in the Federalist Papers

thorough background checks.  I had just read a...

Another Look at the Parable of the Sower

the people who hear about God an...

Sex, Marriage, and Living Together
There are two basic ways to approach life as in how to live
it:   On the one hand, Christians believe

response to a friend to questions and concerns about Trump and immigration
Hi Emily (fake name) Good to hear from
you.  I miss the days when we talked more
often.  I enjoy seeing the pictures and

I tried to find some specifics on what defined th...

Which is more dangerous: Muslims or gun owners? response to a news article

keeping track of thousands and thousands of people hoping to stop them before
they do...
