Sharing truth and holding opinions lightly

As the famous 1980s theologians 38 Special sang, “Hold on loosely, but don’t let go.” It’s not easy sharing the Truth of God’s Word in a world that doesn’t want to hear it. It’s even harder sharing truth with those who have a religion but not an understanding.  We know that the Bible is God’s […]

Gender Chaos: The Insanity (and Impossibility) of “Sex Change”

Right outta the Communist Manifesto, yet adored and defended by most professing conservatives in America.
