Do Christians want leaders or lemmings? Russell Moore is under attack for his outspoken opposition to Donald Trump. But he argued his convictions based on his understanding of Scripture, despite overwhelming pressure to stay silent. Agree or disagree with his position, one has to admit that this is precisely what good leaders do.
The day Japan surrendered to the U.S., Americans erupted in celebration, but according to my mother, my grandpa was subdued. Though he was thrilled that the deadliest war in human history had finally ended, he was sobered by the means required to achieve that goal. I feel similarly today. I am absolutely overjoyed that Americans
How do you respond when a church member comes out of the closet? What’s the best way to keep Millennials from leaving the church? And, how can the church prepare for what’s certain to be a drop in giving in coming years? These are the kinds of difficult issues pastors and church leaders are facing today. And, this why Moody Bible Institute this week is hosting its first-ever Engage the Culture Conference. I am excited and honored to be emceeing this event, and in advance of the conference, I interviewed Moody Bible Institute President Dr. Paul Nyquist to learn more about the thinking and strategy behind this new, cutting-edge conference.
If you had asked me three months ago what the greatest threat to evangelicalism is, I might have said the evangelical Left.

Like Protestant Evangelicals, they highly regard the Bible; emphasize Christ’s sacrifice on the cross as the means of redemption for all humanity; think faith should be expressed in missionary and social reform efforts; and perhaps
Is the Evangelical Immigration Table – a coalition of liberal and conservative evangelical groups – actually a front group for George Soros and the institutional Left? Last week, Breitbart dot com – a leading conservative news website – leveled that accusation. Now, evangelicals associated with the Table – like Russell Moore of the Southern
Dinesha D’Souza (2016 Movie; “What’s So Great About Christianity”; “The Enemy at Home”) just resigned as president of The King’s College after WORLD magazine reported his indiscretions regarding a woman who is not his wife. You can read the details in the articles below. I’m shocked and saddened that this great mind succumbed to the very
Imagine taking a bite of cantelope and tasting something like a cucumber. Yuck! Apparently, though, that’s what happens when cantelope grows too close to cucumber and the plants cross-pollinate. The initial cantelope is okay; but its seeds produce a flavorless cucumber-melon hybrid. I fear that’s what’s happened to us evangelicals. We’ve lived so
2012 may go down as the year of the exemplary evangelical athlete. First, Denver Bronco Quarterback Tim Tebow inspires the nation – not just with come-from-behind wins – but with Christian character and zeal. And then, just as Tebowmania is beginning to wane, along comes Linsania – enthusiasm over the unlikely hero of the
