“First, they won't call it ‘infanticide’ (killing infants) but ‘post-birth abortion’. The reasons are obvious. The word ‘infanticide’ strikes horror into our hearts. But ‘post-birth abortion’ makes it sound like the termination is simply an extension of abortion, which we are culturally adjusted to. Yet the terminology is grossly inaccurate.”
Steve Fuller finds a lesson in Luther’s life: “God's Word promises that your own prayers will powerfully bring God's help. But since God's Word encourages us to ask others to pray, that must mean their prayers will bring even more of God's help.”
This is a short primer on the kingdom of God. “Any kingdom will consist of a king, his realm, its citizens, and the law that regulates their lives. This is true of God's kingdom as well.

From the opening Scripture to the closing benediction every piece of the liturgy is a piece to a puzzle that, when assembled, gives us all a fuller picture of the gospel.”
“E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages.”
We’re all trying to figure out Kim Jong Un. If he pops off a few nukes, some of my dear friends, the few and proud, will be strapping on the mean greens, locking and loading, and heading out to sea. This profile from The Washington Post is quite an interesting one.
