We Must Reclaim Friendship From the Bonds of Social Media

Chris has a strong article here about making sure that our friendships, whenever possible, transcend social media.

Ravi Zacharias Hid Hundreds of Pictures of Women, Abuse During Massages, and a Rape Allegation

As much as I hate to link to such an ugly story, it’s important that we fact the facts about Ravi Zacharias. Here CT extensively reports on what are now the undeniable facts. (See also Zacharias Ministry Acknowledges Founder’s Sexual Misconduct by WORLD.)

In the Wake of Ravi Zacharias’s Sexual Abuse of Women

On that note, Randy Alcorn says, “While we should all live consistently with the gospel, our obedience and virtue should never be the foundation or object of anyone else’s faith. Christian leaders are not God. They did not create you and didn’t die for your sins. If your primary faith is in Christian leaders instead of Jesus, then you need to lose that faith and replace it with Jesus alone, the only proper object of your faith. Put your ultimate and absolute faith in no man except Jesus, the God-man.”

The Gift Giver’s Joy

Here’s a reflection on the joy of giving.

iGeneration and iDentity

Flashback: What Do Hitmen and Porn Watchers Have in Common?

  • Tell Me

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
