Practical Foot Surgery Recovery Ideas (Side Topic)

Practical Foot Surgery Recovery Ideas (Side Topic)

I had my fifth foot surgery two days ago. You could almost call me an expert now. Not that I’d want to do the surgery; I slept through all of them! But I know a lot more than most people about being the patient. This is part one of two blog posts on what I’ve learned through all this. This one is way off my usual topics for this blog. I’m writing it for anyone who might gain from practical…

25 Lies Dominating Western Culture Today

25 Lies Dominating Western Culture Today

25 Lies Dominating Western Culture Today … and seeking to rule over your own view of reality. Not one of these is true. Even Christians are falling for some of them, though — especially the last three. Humans are unexceptional among the animals. Human nature is malleable according to human will. Innocent, defenseless human life is dispensable without moral consequence. Human flourishing is best promoted through shielding persons from contrary opinions, beliefs and values. Disagreement on moral choices and practices is equivalent to hate….

SSM and the Argument From Future Opinion

SSM and the Argument From Future Opinion

I hear it all the time: “Christians in years to come will be just as ashamed over the Church’s opposition to same-sex marriage today, as we are now about slaveholders in the South using the Bible to support slavery. So very wrong: and yet so close to the truth. I’ll explain why. First, here’s what’s wrong in it. It’s what I call an argument from future opinion: We ought not do x today because in the future we’ll find out that…

More On Why Same-Sex “Marriage” Seems To Make Sense To So Many

More On Why Same-Sex “Marriage” Seems To Make Sense To So Many

Back in October I explained why I think it is that same-sex “marriage” (SSM) makes so much sense to so many people. It’s because so many—not just SSM advocates—have bought into a distorted definition of marriage that goes something like this: Marriage is the legally-recognized faithful, uniquely committed, loving, social, economic, and sexual union of two non-blood-related consenting adults of opposite sex….Marriage carries with it certain legal, economic, and social benefits, not least of which is the social approval accorded…

Marriage and Same-Sex “Marriage:” Thoughts for Teaching Ministry

Marriage and Same-Sex “Marriage:” Thoughts for Teaching Ministry

Further on why same-sex “marriage” makes sense to so many: Marriage is under attack from multiple directions. It has been for decades. The current push for same-sex “marriage” (SSM) is the full flowering of that attack. The essential problem since at least the 1960s has been this: that marriage has been too often regarded as an institution of, by, and for the couple. It has been for the fulfillment and happiness of the many and the woman who entered into…

Dealing With Two Common Arguments for Same-Sex “Marriage”

Dealing With Two Common Arguments for Same-Sex “Marriage”

My post this afternoon on same-sex “marriage” (SSM) might help you deal with two common objections to man-woman marriage. The first goes something like this: “Why can't gays be married? Why do men and women get all the rights and they get none?” That question comes from a wrong starting point. It starts with the assumption that marriage is about the couple. You can gently point out that marriage was always intended to be bigger than that. It was intended…
