So here’s me stirring the pot. We enjoy watching House because, among other things, they hit hot-button issues in culture, and present a strong case for their point of view. […]
On this issue, Christianity has not changed. Culture has changed. Culture, are you tolerant enough to respect our historic convictions?
How tolerance is being redefined to limit free-speech and ultimately bring persecution to Christians.
Discussion on a CBC interview with a mother, and some doctors, who recommend sex-change therapy in children.
From the first time I saw this, I was blown away both by Driscoll's grasp on Scriptures and his wisdom and tact in sharing it. How does one learn to answer (on the spot!) a thorny question like this in such a profound way? (2 Tim. 3:16-17 - ?)
When I saw the Campolos' audio available on this topic, I was instantly interested. It was Tony Campolo who has influenced my beliefs on this topic several years ago. In one of the first "emergent" books which I read (entitled, "Letters to a Young Evangelical"), Tony spends a lot of time encouraging the next generation to not get on the political band-wagon of their parents. Older Evangelicals, he complains, are concerned about nothing other than abortion and homosexuality. Are they unaware that there is more to Christianity than this? In this book, I thought Tony provided a good and probably needed counter-point to the over-emphasis on these topics, and especially how they are pursued in politics. However, the application which I took away from this book was, "Homosexuality and abortion are not important. Don't think about them or focus on them at all." Was this what he was saying? No. Was this his intended result? I don't know. However, this is the impact it had on me. (Note: the post "My Stand On Abortion" represents my pendulum-swing back, away from Campolo's influence on abortion).
