Owen Strachan: California Pushes Seeks to Shame Religious Expression

Those who call for personal change—like Christian ministers—are now being told they need to change.

In California, the State Senate continues to push a resolution that condemns religious leaders and counselors who teach the historic positions of their respective faiths.

Such teaching, we’re told, is “harmful” towards those drawn to alternative lifestyles—including those different views on sex and gender.

But: The call to personal transformation is found at the very root of Christian theology—and Christianity is not alone in promoting the idea that people are flawed and in need of personal transformation.

America has long recognized the value of such perspectives. But today, First Amendment-protected religious liberty is under fire. Ironically, those who encourage others to change spiritually are now being told they need to change.

People are free to disagree with the message of the minister.

They ought not try to silence that minister.

Michael Medved: A “One State Solution” Means No Safe Haven

Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, says “I want a safe haven for Jews.”

The question she hasn’t been asked and cannot answer is: where do you think that “safe haven” should be? She obviously doesn’t think it should be in Israel, the ancestral home of the Jewish people, since she favors the so-called “One State Solution”, meaning the end of any Jewish State in the Middle East.

The idea that any Arab Palestinian state could provide a “safe haven” for Jews or other non-Muslims is ridiculous, considering the terrible record in treatment of Jews, Christians and other minorities in all of the 22 existing Arab Muslim states.

If her Democratic colleagues continue to defend and excuse Tlaib’s incoherent extremism, then all voters who care about Israel’s security should work to end the Democratic House majority that shamelessly sanctions extremism.

Albert Mohler: The Promise Of Easter

This Sunday is Easter, a great celebration day for Christians. The Church bears a mandate to proclaim the truth that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. The resurrected Lord gave the Church a sacred commission to take the gospel—the message of Christ’s victory over sin and death—throughout the world.

So, as the Church gathers to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christians look back in thankfulness to that empty tomb and forward to the fulfillment of Christ’s purposes in us. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the promise of our resurrection from the dead, and of Christ’s total victory over sin and death.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is at the very center of the Christian gospel. The empty tomb is full of power.

Happy Easter to all. May the joy of the resurrection be yours.

Michael Medved: An Occasion That Was Powerfully, Unashamedly Christian

The National Cathedral funeral service for the late President George Herbert Walker Bush was as noble and remarkable as the good man it honored. Every speaker offered words of wisdom and insight to inspire Americans for generations to come. Former Senator Alan Simpson honored the late president’s love of laughter and noted that “Humor is the universal solvent against the abrasive elements of life” while “Hatred corrodes the container it’s carried in.” He also praised his friend’s rare character, observing that “those who travel the high road of humility in Washington, D.C. are not bothered by heavy traffic.”

But beyond the eloquence and pageantry, the occasion conveyed a powerful message: the event was proudly, powerfully, unashamedly  Christian. The hymns and prayers served as a reminder that neither the Bush family nor the nation it served, has ever been secular, or in any way uncomfortable with a deep, abiding faith.
