Truth Drives Us to Compassion

Alan's monthly letter for March 2013 Dear Friend, Today, more than ever, it is difficult to maintain a Christian view of sexuality, let alone homosexuality. For young people, it’s harder given the constant bombardment of pro- homosexual propaganda. It’s pushed in schools, promoted in television, and protected in law. If a student has any friends at all, there’s a good chance that one of them claims to be gay or has same-sex attractions. That might sound like an opportunity, but there’s a problem.

Is the Leviticus Prohibition of Homosexuality Irrelevant?

Alan's monthly letter for February 2013 Dear Friend, Skeptics of all stripes believe the book of Leviticus is irrelevant.

Alan's monthly letter for November 2012 Dear Friend, Secular culture has given God the boot. Science has emerged as the new religion and scientists are its priests. When truth is sought, science is consulted. When knowledge is needed, science delivers. When reason is employed, science is its master.

Social Justice Begins at Conception

Social justice is trendy nowadays. Homelessness. Poverty. Human trafficking. It’s cool to care about these social ills, even among non-Christians. Curiously absent from the list is abortion. Indeed, many people complain that Christians focus too much on unborn babies and not enough on born people. Jesus said nothing about abortion, but said plenty about the poor and the hungry. So why do I talk about abortion so much.
