How to Get Out of a Corner

The Christian gets pigeon-holed as the judgmental one, but everyone else is judging, too. It’s an inescapable consequence of believing in morality. I have a friend who is a deeply committed Christian woman and whose boss is a lesbian. That in itself isn’t a problem. My friend has the maturity to know you can’t expect non-Christians to live like Christians. But her boss posed a difficult question to her, and talking about it with you might help expand your horizons on how to get out of a tough situation.

A Proverb a Day - Mentoring Letter February 2014

If I have only a short time to read, Proverbs is where I turn first. Every day that I do, I feel like my foundation is being shored up.  February 1, 2014 There’s nothing original about reading a chapter of Proverbs a day. Thirty-one days in a month (roughly); 31 chapters in the book. Easy. In fact, it’s so obvious, it’s easy to overlook. Don’t. Very little in my life has yielded such rewards with such little effort.

Why Is Homosexuality Bad in Itself?

There are passages in the Old Testament and in the New Testament that give us some indication of what is really wrong with homosexuality from God's perspective. The question of why homosexuality is bad in itself is not easy to answer. I'm not suggesting that the Scripture doesn't give us insight. I think it does, and I'm going to offer that, but I'm not convinced the answer is going to be satisfying to a lot of people because most have lost the ability to recognize the significance of teleology.

The Courage of Your Convictions

Are you willing to be called a bigot for Christ? The issue of what Christians believe about homosexuality is coming up a lot for a reason. It is not because Christians are trying to force our views on other people. Christians who have a traditional understanding of the Bible are in a defensive posture right now with the trend of culture.

Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air

It might be that, given the nature of the world, all we are left with when it comes to ethics are human conventions. But if that’s the case, then an intellectually honest relativist will have to admit that, given his view of the world, ultimately, anything goes. Recently I’ve run into a challenge to my own challenge of moral relativism (Relativism—Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air, Baker). The rejoinder is clever, but misleading. I want to give you my response so you will be ready if you encounter the same objection. First a quick review.

Unnatural Adoption

The line of reasoning that justifies homosexuality because it is a “natural” desire for those born that way annihilates the argument for adoption rights by homosexuals.  If homosexuality is right because it’s natural, then adoption must be wrong because it’s unnatural.  If nature dictates morality, and the natural consequence for homosexuals is to be childless, then it’s unnatural—and therefore immoral—for homosexuals to raise children.
