Seven Ways Christians Should Speak During a National Crisis

Last week another horrific mass shooting—this one a terrorist event—happened in California. This followed a shooting at Planned Parenthood in Colorado, which followed a horrific, ISIS-led mass attack in Paris. We’re living in a dangerous world. Terror and all kinds of evil seem to happen every day in communities that seem impervious to this. We are inundated with details because we are all wired to social media, televisionm and other mediums. Every event is now a national, even global, event. And every person with a smartphone is now a reporter, a commentator or a policy analyst. This is the...

Morality and a High View of God

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones one of the greatest preachers and theologians of the 20th century taught that a high view of God leads to a high view of Jesus. Popular culture flaunts its belief that man in all of his glory is the beginning and the end of all things. The Bible does not begin with man but rather with God and His work of creation. The Bible continues by teaching man about God’s work of redeeming man from his sin. Furthermore, the Bible stands in judgment of men never do men stand in judgment of the Bible. How important...
