“Can We Please Stop Saying, ‘White Privilege'”– Bryan Loritts
“That’s how I hear white privilege. It has a ring of displeasure, a note of attack and sourness. White privilege. Your son. Neither conveys love, and love is the insignia of the Christ follower.”

“Marijuana and Psychosis: Real Data, Real Bad”BreakPoint
“Given the well-documented mental health risks, especially to not-fully-formed adolescent brains, the rush to legalization is the height of irresponsibility. An irresponsibility that can shatter lives. And don’t just take our word for it.”

“What is Apologetics?”The One Minute Apologist
“The word comes from the Greek apologia, meaning “to defend.” We see this word used in 1 Peter 3:15 where Peter says, “always being prepared to make a defense (apologia) to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” Let’s unpack this verse and glean a few insights from it.”

“Do All Good People Go to Heaven?”– Solas
“‘If God does exist, then surely all I need to do is try and live a good, decent life.’ Somebody once quipped that ‘good-person-ism’ is the most common religious belief on the planet.
