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.

The S.L.E.D. Test

The SLED Test is a simple argument against abortion. The pro-life view is that the unborn are human beings just like you and me. That’s why it’s wrong to kill them. Although many abortion-choice advocates agree the unborn are human, they deny they are valuable human beings. They think this distinction justifies killing the unborn. Often they use personhood language to express this view. They say the unborn might be human, but it’s not a person.

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.

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.

Matthew Shepard and Hate Crimes

I cannot let the day pass without talking about the death of Matthew Shepard.  When I first read the details I was sickened.  My heart sank as I went over the story in the paper today.  It made me want to cry.
