“When the Church Apologizes for Its Beliefs”The Gospel Coalition
“Just days later came another headline, and this one, sadly, didn’t surprise me: ‘Church sorry for saying that sex is just for married heterosexuals.’ Leaders in the Church of England said their initial statement had ‘jeopardized trust’ and caused ‘hurt and division.’ Nothing in the follow-up statement retracted the substance of their earlier pastoral guidance, which made their subsequent apology something like this: We’re sorry we told you what we believe.”

“Pastor Derek Neider goes into the heart and vision that CGN has to plant churches in the U.S. and all around the world.”

“Speaking Out Against Transgender Extremists Has Made Me the Most Hated Man on the Internet”– Daily Mail UK
“Most of all, I believe that gender ideology, in its currently fashionable form, is dangerous, incoherent nonsense. I believe trans people –those unfortunate enough to suffer body dysphoria – are having their condition exploited and trivialized by abusive, controlling and authoritarian trans rights activists. And I think women and children are suffering because of it. Worst of all, I say so, loudly. This makes me Public Enemy No 1.”

“Michael Behe on the Design Idea That Won’t Go Away (and Shouldn’t)” Discovery Institute
“Still, Behe has taken up the challenge. Listen in as he discusses how his “irreducible complexity” arguments against Darwinism have fared, and for a teaser about an upcoming anthology where Behe directly engages his critics.”

“When Leaders Lead 2020”Calvary Global Network
“This year our theme is “VISION!” taken from Habakkuk 2:2: Write the vision and make it plain…that [she] may run who reads it! We want you to be equipped to run in this spiritual race! It is our prayer that every word spoken would allow you to see Jesus more clearly, deepen your love for Him, and equip you to share His love with the world around you.”

“The Second Coming of Christ is Not a Peripheral Doctrine”The Gospel Coalition
“The return of our Lord Jesus Christ is not a mere doctrine to be discussed, nor a matter for intellectual study alone. Its prominence in the New Testament shows the great importance of the truth, for it is referred to over three hundred times, and it may almost be said that no other doctrine is mentioned so frequently or emphasized so strongly.”
