What is a Biblical Christian?

W

According to a recent 2021 study, while 51% of Americans claim to have a biblical worldview, only 6% actually have a biblical worldview!   Let that sobering number sink in for a minute. If we take our Christianity seriously, and if we really care about the next generation and the spread of the Gospel, then we must ask some hard questions: How does this happen? Am I part of the 6%? Maybe, but...

Navigating College: 2 Ways to Build a Solid Foundation of Truth

N

It feels like déjà vu yet again. Sitting down at my computer, headphones in, I hear the familiar messages. Reading through my textbooks, I am constantly bombarded by them. Messages that contradict the Word of God. Messages that feel good to the hearer and those who believe in them. Messages that lead many to death.

When Life Breaks Your Heart–This is Your Hope

W

I just want to go back. I can’t tell you how many times this thought has crossed my mind lately. I want to go back three months ago and alter the course of the future. I want to go back to the me I used to be before grief pummeled my heart and hopes and dreams collapsed. I want to go back to the precious memories of lost relationships. I want to go back to a pre-pandemic world. I just want to go...

What Is True Justice? Defining Biblical Justice in a Secular Culture

W

It’s been talked about by philosophers for centuries. It’s been defined, re-defined, then defined again. It’s spoken of in movies by rogue vigilantes who claim to take the law into their own hands and by protesters on the street corner calling out for change.
