The Intolerance of Tolerance

  Tolerance, one of America’s noblest virtues, has been so distorted it’s become a vice.             There is one word that can stop a follower of Christ in his tracks as he seeks to “give an account for the hope” that is in him. That word is “tolerance.”  Tolerant people do not “force” their personal views on others.  They are impartial, non-judgmental, and neutral.  Each person is permitted to decide for himself.  No “forcing” personal views.

No Hint of Politics

  Since the Gospel alone transforms lives, some Christians wrongly conclude that political involvement is a waste of time.  This myth of political passivity presumes that the Great Commission is our only responsibility.  It’s not.

The Confusing Moral Logic of Embryonic Stem Cell Research

  The embryonic stem cell research debate is remarkable because neither side—pro-life or pro-abortion—seems to understand the moral logic of its views.       Presumably, people who are pro-life hold their views for a reason and are not just emoting.  The same could be said of pro-choicers.  I’ve long suspected that’s not always the case, though.  The recent debate about embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) confirms my doubts.

Partial-Birth Abortion Is Not about Abortion

  When we justify killing of a fully developed human child through partial-birth abortion, we are not defending abortion.  We’re promoting something much more chilling.  Even the mothers involved know what’s going on.

The United Nations and Star Trek Morality

  For some, ethics is nothing more than a social contract to insure survival.  Compliance is the highest good, breaking ranks the greatest evil, regardless of the issue.  This may make sense on television, but it doesn’t work in the real world.

Vanishing Pro-Life Apologist

  Pro-lifers around the country are getting tight-lipped on abortion.  Here’s why we’re shying away from speaking frankly about the moral crime of the century and how you can be equipped to engage this problem.*       The last few years have witnessed a stunning development in the pro-life movement, one worth considering, especially since this month marks 30 years since the landmark legal decision of Roe v. Wade.

Doing What Comes Naturally

  Is homosexuality “natural”?  Do gays have a “right” to adopt children?       Rosie O’Donnell is the latest celebrity to go public as a homosexual and take the stand as a champion of gay adoption rights.  Her challenge has reignited the controversy about rights and wrongs based on what is “natural.”
