"Are Evangelicals Losing the Gospel in Our Day?"Christianity Today
"When preaching the gospel, many preachers today are talking less about forgiveness and getting to heaven and more about bringing God’s kingdom to earth and changing and healing the world in the here and now. Is this a good thing? No and yes. Let me explain."

"Prehistoric, Dinosaur-Era Shark with Insane Teeth Found Swimming Off Coast of Portugal"Newsweek
"Scientists believe the frilled shark has remained the same, both inside and out...when the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops still roamed the planet."

"Perseverance in Prayer"– Back to Basics
"Have you ever prayed about something and felt like no one was listening? Time and time again, you have brought your request before the Lord and yet nothing changes. What do you do then? If you are like most people, you will be tempted to just give up. Don’t do that! Jesus taught a parable about a woman pestering a judge until he heeded her request with the intention of exhorting us always to pray and not lose heart (Luke 18:1–8)."

"Dawkins Radio Kerfuffle Highlights Anti-Christian Bias"– Institute for Creation Research 
"Berkeley, California, radio station KPFA recently cancelled an interview with vocal atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, citing his harsh criticisms of Islam which 'offended and hurt . . . so many people.'1 Dawkins is famous for his harsh criticisms of religion in general and Christianity and biblical creation in particular. Yet for some reason, the producers of KPFA did not cite those criticisms when denying Dawkins a radio forum."

"A Plummer with a Rifle"– The Wall Street Journal
"The world is trying to figure out what evil, or madness, caused Devin Kelley to kill 26 people and wound 20 more at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday morning. But forgive us if we focus on Stephen Willeford, the local plumber who saved lives by grabbing his rifle and firing at Kelley."

"The Nashville 'Megachurch' that Embraced Gay Marriage Two Years Ago has Cratered"– Denny Burk
"Walking away from Jesus is not a catalyst for church growth. On the contrary, it is the catalyst for church death. Believers in such churches will eventually leave, and those that remain to embrace the error will be an unfaithful remnant. It may be a gathering of people, but it will not be a gathering of born-again people and will not therefore be a church of the Lord Jesus."
