When should the church make political statements?

As a pastor, I often struggle with knowing when and how to speak about politics. On one hand, the Christian worldview has ramifications for how we see everything in our lives, which certainly includes which approaches to governing people are the most just and helpful. Furthermore, Christian obedience requires that we stand up for truth, […]

A rabbi’s warning to U.S. Christians

A rabbi’s warning to U.S. Christians

Does anyone seriously think America is more seriously jeopardized by Christian conservatives than by Islamic zealots? I fear that many Americans believe just that in the same way that many pre-World War II Westerners considered Churchill a bigger threat than Hitler. RABBI DANIEL LAPIN I am certainly not a Churchill.

Discipline Comes Before Deliverance
