The Front Line in the Gender Wars – “The gender revolution will not be televised. Why? Because it is taking place in your local public bathroom.” A children’s bathroom, that is.

True Greatness Never Goes Viral – This is a sweet tribute to a godly man. “Despite his lack of public fame, my grandpa was truly great in God’s eyes. That’s the funny thing about true, biblical greatness. Biblical greatness almost never goes viral, because biblical greatness almost always involves doing things no one ever sees.”

The Antichrist – David Murray is writing a series on the Antichrist. Now there’s a topic we don’t talk about much anymore…

Can Orientation Be Sinful? – People often distinguish between orientation and behavior. Denny Burk examines whether that distinction holds up under scrutiny.

You’re Not a Superhero – Paul Tripp writes about some of our natural limitations and how we sometimes try to defy them.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God.
