November 08 2004 By virtueonline Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity

Pearcey is a scholar, an intellectual, a brilliant writer, and she has an uncanny ability to explain profound ideas in a way that is accessible – and helpful -- to regular people. She appeared recently at the Heritage Foundation to talk about her book to a standing-room-only crowd.

"The half-dozen leaders and three-dozen members of the Jesus Seminar create the impression the scholarship is seriously divided. But I've been at annual meetings of the Institute for Biblical Research, with hundreds of scholars, and no one can take their outrageous claims seriously any more.

November 03 2004 By virtueonline A President's 'Theology of War' - by Gregory J. Welborn

Among its primary criticisms is the claim that Mr. Bush's use of biblical
references has created a grave moral crisis in this country. Especially
discomfiting to these professors is the president's use of the imagery of

October 14 2004 By virtueonline The Ecstatic Heresy - by Robert Sanders

The Dammann case does reveal continuing differences in the United Methodist Church concerning the issue of homosexuality. The Council of Bishops is painfully aware of this disagreement. In such moments as this, we remember that our unity in Christ does not depend on unanimity of opinion. Rather, in Jesus Christ we are bound together by love that transcends our differences and calls us to stay at the table with one another.

October 12 2004 By virtueonline ONE NATION UNDER GOD - by Stephen Noll

In the case of rule by one, we can easily identify unjust rule as tyranny, where a ruler like Saddam Hussein is oppressing his people and enriching himself.
