August 13 2017 By dvirtue Evangelicals, Trump and the politics of redemption

I say this recognizing that the last election involved difficult choices upon which reasonable and well-intentioned people disagreed. I understand the argument of those who believed that Mr. Trump was the better of two bad options, whose policies would do less damage to the country than Hillary Clinton's.

August 10 2017 By dvirtue "They Became Fools"

And the Bible makes it clear that this is exactly what happens to those who embrace sin and evil, all the while rejecting God. Their whole person grows more and more dark, unstable, and radically bent out of shape. The entire sexual revolution is one huge example of this very thing.

July 31 2017 By dvirtue What Ever Happened to the New Atheists

Harris is a liberal, straight and true, but drew the ire of Reza Aslan for refusing to except Islam from his broad critique of religion. "Islam is not a religion of peace," Harris often says. In fact, he thinks it's just the opposite. For that, everyone from Glen Greenwald to Ben Affleck has cast him as an Islamophobe and a bigot. That means that three of the much-acclaimed "Four Horsemen" of New Atheism have been turfed from the left for extending their critique of religion to Islam.

July 26 2017 By dvirtue The Religious Left's Abortion Gospel

Many might wonder how the often physically brutal extermination of unborn life qualifies as compassion for Parker, yet would presumably make little impression upon his inverted morality and belief in the abortion gospel. As CAP Senior Fellow Jocelyn Frye noted in introducing Parker, he flaunts obscene awards bearing the names of the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger and the murdered late-term abortionist George Tiller (the "Killer").

July 26 2017 By dvirtue Anglican leader in Jamaica breaks ranks by calling for legalisation of sodomy

In a written submission to the committee examining the Sexual Offences Act and related laws in which he emphasised that his views were personal, Gregory likened his position to that of the executed German Christian leader Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who had argued that the aim of the Church is not 'that the authorities make Christian policies, Christian laws and so on, but that they be proper authorities in the sense of their special commission'.

July 24 2017 By dvirtue The Tyranny of Hurt Feelings

Who would have thought, just a few years ago, that hurt feelings would count as legal harm, especially hurt feelings at the conscience convictions of others? And yet this is exactly what is being seriously advanced as a legal standard today.

July 19 2017 By dvirtue Ultra-Rich Gay Activist On Targeting Christians: It's Time To 'Punish The Wicked'

The election of Donald Trump, who claims to support gay rights but stocked his administration with anti-LGBTQ extremists, has only emboldened those looking to erase the gains of the past decade. Gill refuses to go on the defense. 'We're going into the hardest states in the country,' he says. 'We're going to punish the wicked.'

The marriage of male and female is a creation mandate imbued with profound redemptive meaning. In everything God is demonstrating his perfection and supremacy and alongside his kingdom goal at the consummation of time there is divine permission for the rise and rebellion of a rival kingdom, the annihilation of which will prove to a watching creation that our Maker is indeed superior and sovereign over all things in his holiness and righteous ways.

July 17 2017 By dvirtue The Agonizing Ordeal of Eugene Peterson -- You Might Be Next

The ordeal began with Peterson, one of the most influential authors among evangelical pastors, responding to two straightforward questions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Jonathan Merritt of Religion News Service referenced homosexuality and same-sex marriage and then asked Peterson if his view on the morality of same-sex relationships had changed.
