Is it OK For Christians to Cuss?

  Can we talk about [Christians] cussing (especially my young friends)? I don't think it's my imagination that there is a trend among young people who proclaim Christ to think nothing of cursing. I did it when I was young, but I didn't justify it as an acceptable behavior as a Christian; I knew I was ...

An Open Letter to “The Christian Bad Girl”: There is No Such Thing

I get the spirit of the article, An Open Letter to the Christian Bad Girl (met with comments like, "Now that's f****** awesome).  And I even understand the marketing drive behind writing the kind of content that people love to share.  And I'm sure the author is lovely. But because it's being shared, I felt the ...

Christian Homeschooling: Am I Teaching My Children the Right Things?

Even the most avid homeschool family stops periodically and asks, "Are we teaching our children the right things?"  Heavily swayed by outside pressures and our own influence by the state's agenda, Christians easily lose focus of our educational responsibility before the Lord. R.C. Sproul Jr. has written one of my favorite books--a book I think every family needs ...

Why We Must Be Theology-Loving Christians

"I don't really get into 'theology' or 'doctrine.' I mean, I love Jesus. That's really all that matters." Have you heard this? Have you said it? The opposition to theology has caused a great number of problems in the Church. Maybe it's that our terms have not been defined or understood. But theology informs all our ...

Modern Moms: We Need To Get Over Ourselves (The Testimony of Sarah Edwards)

I have been reading about possibly, one of the most amazing women who ever lived: Sarah Edwards (better known as wife to Jonathan Edwards). What made her so amazing? Was she an accomplished musician, a politician, a doctor or a prolific writer? No, though she could have been any of those things (and those things are ...

Being a Woman Who Builds Her Home Instead of Tears it Down

"A wise woman builds her house; but a foolish one pulls it down with her hands." Prov. 14:1 This verse is so convicting to me...how often do I contribute to the pulling down instead of building? Interesting, don't you think, that despite the efforts by the feminist movement and Marxist thought to belittle the role of women ...

Dear Christian: You Can’t Be For the Great Commission & Against Growing Families

When you've written at the same spot for 11 years, sometimes you think you've said all the things. But then again, unless people are digging into the archives, some things bear repeating. So hear goes part of my heart... I recently listened to a Voddie Baucham sermon that reminded me of the Christian's double standard when ...

Parents: It’s Time to Be Nice to Our Kids & Tell Them to Do Hard Things

I think deep down, we all really know: we (collectively, as a culture) are hurting our children with the notion that the teen years are nothing but a time to have fun "while you still can." Implying, of course, that growing up and all the things that come with it, really stinks. It's so deeply ingrained ...

Helping Our Children Stand In & Influence an Ungodly Culture: It’s All in The Balance

We aren't living in a new era, where suddenly the culture is hostile to Christianity. It feels a bit like it here in America, because our country has seen a shift over the last several hundred years from heavy Christian influence to increasing godlessness. But sin is as old as the earth and the Christians in ...
