Doctor Hauled Before Hospital Review Board for Saving Lives

When a doctor saved the lives of two patients in 2018, he wasn’t expecting the hospital to respond by hauling him before an Institutional Review Board for an investigation. But that is exactly what happened. Why? Because he helped a pregnant woman save the lives of her twins by reversing the effects of an abortionContinue reading “Doctor Hauled Before Hospital Review Board for Saving Lives”

Three Miracles in One

Ours is a supernatural faith built around three personal miracles. Our faith commences with a miracle. We come into the kingdom by a miraculous new birth (John 3:3). Our salvation concludes with a miracle. At our Lord’s coming we will be made like him (1 John 3:2). What a transformation! But there is the continuingContinue reading “Three Miracles in One”

The Problem with Humanity

The problem with humanity is sin—our natural propensity to love ourselves and live for our glory rather than to love God and seek his glory. But when we finally become convinced of our lost and sinful condition—with all its deadly consequences—then we cry out for the kind of help that only God can give, saying,Continue reading “The Problem with Humanity”

Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman, the DC Sniper, and the Importance of Fathers

Like many basketball junkies deprived of March Madness and the NBA playoffs, I devoured ESPN’s ten-part series “The Last Dance,” the definitive account of one of the NBA’s G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time), Michael Jordan. Anyone who watched the emergence of the Bulls in the 1990s knew that Jordan’s talent and athleticism were matched only byContinue reading “Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman, the DC Sniper, and the Importance of Fathers”

The First Declaration of Independence

In the late 18th century, a colonist began writing a manuscript that summarized the political unrest of his time. He produced a startling declaration read aloud in a political hall in Philadelphia: When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them withContinue reading “The First Declaration of Independence”

Whatever Happened to Humor

If you’ve ever gotten into social justice discussions online, you’ve likely encountered a certain type of person, a person who seems almost incapable of expressing any emotion except grave concern. They could be progressives, or they could be conservatives, but their temperament unites them. They are very, very serious people. Perhaps the first thing youContinue reading “Whatever Happened to Humor”

Pray for Hong Kong Christians

This week, Beijing horrified millions of Hong Kongers with the enforcement of a new national security law that ushers in sweeping regulations criminalising secession, subversion, “terrorism” and collusion with foreign forces. Anyone accused of breaking this law faces extradition to China for trial and life in prison. The wording is so vague that no oneContinue reading “Pray for Hong Kong Christians”

A Glimpse of a Disciplined Life

One thing that always fascinates me when I read biographies is learning of other people’s habits. That’s especially true when the subject is extremely disciplined. Tim Chester’s Stott on the Christian Life is not quite a biography of John Stott, but it’s not far off. He gives an interesting glimpse of Stott’s normal, well-disciplined routines. Here isContinue reading “A Glimpse of a Disciplined Life”

It’s Time to Shed Light on the Cult of Darwinism

As much as I despise the cancel culture, if there is any cultural icon who deserves to be cancelled for racist attitudes, it is Charles Darwin. Or were you not aware of how his ideas helped fuel the fires of eugenics? I tweeted a poll on June 23, asking, “Who said this? The ‘western nations of Europe …Continue reading “It’s Time to Shed Light on the Cult of Darwinism”

We Are Not Alone

The Christian Institute is backing calls from an MSP for places of worship in Scotland to open for collective worship sooner than 23 July. Churches in Scotland are only permitted at present to open for private prayer and funerals. Murdo Fraser, Tory MSP for Mid-Scotland & Fife, said it was “extraordinary” that pubs were allowedContinue reading “We Are Not Alone”
