According to the description for this episode of UNSHACKLED! titled ‘The Enemy Within,’ “In this homage to CS Lewis’s ‘The Screwtape Letters’, a Senior Tempter instructs a Junior Tempter how to secure the damnation of their latest ‘patient.’ The fact that this patient is part of a Bible study only emboldens their efforts.”
Southern Baptists for Abolishing Abortion is a website devoted to mobilizing Southern Baptists to consistently apply their biblical worldview to the issue of abortion:
Southern Baptists, we have a membership of over 50 million men and women and represent over 47,000 churches. It is time for us to rise up with one collective voice, pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness, pray that He would heal our land, and act now to abolish abortion in our nation without exception or compromise. It’s our day to stand.
In this post, Neil Shenvi responds to charges he is promoting ‘slave master theology,’ writing, “we need to recognize that there are deep problems at work in our culture and in the church. The social gospel and liberation theology are not dead; they are not even dormant. They are erupting.”
In their 1983 song Burning Down the House, the American Rock Band, Talking Heads, sang, “Watch out you might get what you’re after…”
Today’s evangelical talking heads are burning down the house by tossing every sinner they can find out of Christian orthodoxy. And I’m afraid, if things don’t change, they might just get what they’re after.
Conventional wisdom tells us that neither political side has a corner on the Christian faith. Christians should not pledge allegiance to any political party, but evaluate issues individually and vote on candidates individually. Some Christians will naturally fall toward more conservative positions, and some toward more liberal positions. But at the end of the day, politics must not divide us because our opinions on political matters are less important and less clear from Scripture than what we share in common as believers in Christ.
It seems that we could generate much more light, instead of mere heat, if we would take the time to define the terms of our controversies. In the past few years, a social media divide has emerged among Christians who argue, on the one hand, that we must address racism by preaching the gospel, and those who argue, on the other hand, that while the gospel must remain central to the church, wider forms of social activism are also necessary as legitimate implications of the gospel. This common method of framing the debate is actually too crude to be helpful. What we need is a nuanced look at what, exactly, is being argued on each side.
In this post, non-SBC author Hohn Cho writes, “it is at best disconcerting when certain people point their fingers at me, and others like me, and claim that we owe them something, when to the best of my knowledge and recollection, I owe nothing to these folks. In many cases, I’ve never even met them before! How and when does this happen? Well, in the United States, we often see it in the context of discussions about ‘privilege’ and social justice.”
In this post, Brad Green writes, “Current revolutionary activity is a manifestation of a kind of religious faith, even if this faith is—on Christian terms—ultimately a form of unbelief.“
In this article, Jared Moore writes that “Much of the error in Revoice’s discussion of same-sex attraction is their treatment of it as a ‘special sin,’ different from other sins. Yet, sinners having orientations does not negate moral culpability.”
