Owen Strachan: Standing Firm

Is the Bible—and its teaching about marriage and the family—now hateful?

Some today seem to think so.

When NFL quarterback Drew Brees promoted Bring Your Bible to School day in partnership with Focus on the Family, activists in the LGBTQ world struck back hard.

They accused Brees of partnering with a “hate” group that does harm to homosexuals.

The attack on Brees was gratuitous—a cheap shot deserving a penalty. And Brees should not backtrack here. Teaching that marriage is a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman isn’t hateful. Neither is helping people believe anything Scripture teaches about sexual sin. This is what virtue and health look like, actually.

It’s right to support marriage, the traditional family, and the sexes. Focus on the Family is doing great work. They can take their hits.

People of religious conviction everywhere must have the courage to stand firm in the pocket.

Jerry Bowyer: Buttigieg: Bad Theology, Bad Economics

Recently, Democrat presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, decided to try his hand at Bible application. He argued that the federal government should prohibit any wage lower than $15/hour.

And he quoted the book of Proverbs: “Whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker.”

When it comes to failure, that’s what we call a two-fer: It was both bad theology and bad economics.

First, bad theology: The Bible is a very long book and it does not specify a specific wage level, ever. The New Testament parable of the workers seems to argue in favor of mutually agreed upon wages, not mandated wages.

And then we have Mayor Pete’s bad economics: There is no doubt that a $15/hr. minimum wage would create a spike in unemployment, and the hardest hit would be the children of the working class and the poor.

Let’s hope the nation is not fooled by either bad economics or bad theology.

Michael Medved: Finding the Message in the Miraculous


On the last Sabbath of 2018, Jewish communities around the world read aloud a Biblical passage that, coincidentally, suggests a means to find guidance in 2019. In Exodus, Chapter Three, Moses tends sheep in the wilderness and spots a bush that burns brightly but isn’t consumed.

The text not only describes this wonder, but records the reaction of Moses. “I will turn aside now and look at this great sight,” he resolves. And only then, the Bible says: “God saw that he turned aside to see, and God called to him….”

In other words, the Divine voice addressed him in direct response to his sense of wonder, his open eyes and open heart. In the year ahead, may we “turn aside to see” the miraculous developments in our world and listen for the deeper messages they’re sending us.
