Killing Abortionist

Now yesterday I had the opportunity of catching a new show here in the Los Angeles area for the first time. At 11 o'clock on Fox 11 Dennis Prager, a local talk show host and a fine thinker and a friend and a person who has helped me tremendously in the last number of years that I've been acquainted with him both professionally and personally, is the host of that show. It's a half hour format. He starts out with some opening comments like I do here, and, like he does on his own radio show, then he has a guest for about 15 or 20 minutes. Then they have a couple of comments from the audience.

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.

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. Just cite the prohibition of homosexual behavior in Chapter 18 and brace for the impending attack. They’ll say something akin to, “Leviticus 19:19 says you can’t wear clothes made from two different linens or plant two different seeds in the same field. You don’t follow those rules, so why follow the homosexual ones?” They’re claiming you’re inconsistent.

Kingdom Impact

Alan's monthly letter for December 2012 Dear Friend, Our life is short. We strive to make a difference while we’re here. As believers, we’re not looking to make just any kind of impact, we want to have kingdom impact. I’m pleased to report that you and I accomplished that in 2012. We made a tremendous contribution for the cause of Christ because we partnered together. I’d like to give you some specific examples in the areas of my speaking, writing, and training. Speaking

Science as God

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. People think scientific inquiry is the paradigm of truth and reason, but its importance has been exaggerated and misunderstood.

I’m an Ancient Christian

As I continue to read and learn about the Emerging Church, there’s a question that keeps running through my mind:  Why do I have to reject classical Christianity to embrace more significant worship, a more authentic Christian life, and a deeper relationship with God? The church has practiced these things for 2000  years.
