Understanding the Israeli-Palestinian Crisis
We’ve been here before. The 1936 Arab Revolt. The 1947–48 Civic War in Palestine. The 1948 War. The 1956 Sinai War. The 1967 Six-Day War. The War of Attrition. The Yom Kippur War in 1973. The list continues and grows ever more lengthy and bloody.
Was Jesus a Sexist?
Not only is Jesus not a sexist, but rather, there is nobody in all of human history who loved, believed in, amplified, gave leadership to, protected, and honored women more than Jesus. He was pro-women in the beginning, throughout all of Scripture, and He is pro-women now. The heart of Jesus is the heart of the Father: Renewal and restoration, not hierarchy and suppression.

The average lifespan of a constitution created by any country is 17 years. Think about that for a moment. 17 versus 233.

The Orwellian Utopia
Saturated in an Orwellian utopia, there is a quote in George Orwell’s 1984 that is so chilling, so eerie, and yet so incredibly relevant — considering big tech’s recent “cleanse” of conservative ideas on social media — that is should send an existential shockwave through every American.
The Prevailing Church
Sadly, many of us in church have been content to withdraw from society because of deficient theological views. My Bible tells me that the gospel is transformative for people, families, and communities. Martin Luther said, “A gospel that does not deal with the issues of the day is not a gospel at all.”
