Changing Laws or Changing Hearts?

Are society and culture most impacted by changing laws or changing hearts? The United States has witnessed what seems like a fundamental transformation in morality and laws over the last ten or 20 years. In truth, however, this “revolution” has been in the making for well over 100 years. It’s just that the curtains have now been lifted enough to reveal the transformation wrought by the change agents who have been steadily working behind the … Continue reading

Answering a Critic

An individual saw last week’s blog, “Moral Fluidity” and shared it on his webpage, first by quoting snippets from our article and then by offering his commentary (we have also done a webcast on this as well): If we allow the gays to marry, next it will be polygamy and pedophilia. The article points out that now 6-7-year-olds can choose their gender, why not allow them to use their newfound gender for sex? How could … Continue reading

Seems almost funny now.  Conservatives, it was thought, would be rioting in the streets. At least one Leftist magazine already had the cover ready … Continue reading

God Made Them That Way

When we initially commented on Suzanne DeWitt Hall’s HuffPo blog,  “Jesus: The First Transgender Man” with “Jesus Transgendered?” we had no expectation that anyone from the Huffington Post would read much less respond to our thoughts. To our surprise Suzanne DeWitt Hall did both, informing us that she did a follow up to her original piece, titled “Christians Turn Love into a Four-Letter Word”, in which she included hateful comments she had received from some … Continue reading

Seasoned with salt…

Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. (Colossians 4:5-6 ESV) Last week’s blog, “Jesus Transgendered?” presented our thoughts (Joy’s and mine) on Huffington Post, and in particular the HuffPO blog by Suzanne DeWitt Hall, “Jesus: The First Transgender Man.” To our surprise, Suzanne DeWitt Hall commented on the blog, … Continue reading
