Down’s Syndrome – I love this father’s celebration of his daughter who has Down’s Syndrome.

The Apparent Paradox of Sanctification – John MacArthur writes about the apparent paradox of sanctification. “How do you overcome sin and live the Christian life?

Hobby Lobby Hysteria – Gene Veith writes about the ridiculous hysteria (and outright lies) about the Hobby Lobby ruling.
