The Bishop of Southwark, Tom Butler, has said that doctors should be permitted to allow a sick newborn baby to die after his birth. He justifies his view by explaining the cost of keeping the baby alive may be high enough to allow his death. (more…)

Church member Linda Long, 48, at East London Holiness Church, London, Kentucky, died after being bitten by a snake and died from the venom soon afterward.  Snake handling is a practice some churches practice as a demonstration of faith that one can “take up serpents”without being harmed, a citation from the NT gospels.  Read the press story here.

Haggard, Hell, and the Holy One November 7, 2006

Sobering were the words this week concerning the fall of Ted Haggard into sin. I have restrained myself from writing until now to give time to reflect on the serious nature of his sin and the message this action sends to the world. More will come of these events for the gospel, if we are careful how we preach and teach as we go into the world. First, you (more…)

Study reveals young evangelical (im)morality November 6, 2006

Remember when your grandparents would sit around the family table and comment to your parents about the declining morality and increased sense of youthful callous toward sin? Well, pull up your chair and hold on to your seat.

In the latest Barna Group report, Buster Report: A New Generation of Adults Describes Their Life and Spirituality, research reveals in explicit detail the growing divide in understanding the line of sex, life, marriage, and 21st century morality. Hold on to your hats, and read on… (more…)

Politics and Purity: Evangelicals at the crossroads? November 5, 2006

Ever wondered how far evangelicals can move into the secular sphere without confusing or losing the substance of the sacred? The 2006 meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in Washington, D.C. next week will seek to answer that question. I will be presenting a paper that considers the elements of theology and politics that affect the church and her pulpit. (more…)

Schaeffer: Pastor-evangelist, man of conviction, man of community November 4, 2006

Francis Schaeffer wrote 26 books, many of which influenced me deeply early in my walk to ministry. His books have been translated into twenty languages and sold over 3 million copies. Schaeffer, nevertheless, identified himself as a preacher, apologist, and evangelist for the gospel. His L’Abri communities still exist in nine countries around the world. Its good to remember that Schaeffer and many others like him still influence students for Christ. If you want to refresh your memory on the life and ministry of this great and peculiar man, read this brief introduction written recently at the Ref21 website (here).
