There may be 300 trillion billion stars, planets, and moons in our universe and yet the Earth is likely the only one to have life. Check out our beautiful planet from a very special vantage point: space.
Kevin DeYoung addresses this common argument.
China’s decades-long one-child policy has left the country facing a demographic cliff, the population projected to halve by the end of the century. What has the government proposed to do about the disaster their own “one-child” population control policy caused? More population control, of course, now with the opposite intent – they”ll subsidize couples willing to have larger families. But after demonizing large families for decades, how well is this about-face going to work? It is easier to break than to remake, and in killing millions of unborn children, China has made a mess of things it simply isn’t capable of repairing.
The lesson for them, and big governments everywhere, is to back off in areas of life you should never have been involved in, in the first place. Only a government that thinks it is God will try to manage and fix everything, and such a delusional government can then only be a force for bad.
So does that mean there is no hope for China? No, it only means that government isn’t it. If they humble themselves and stop impeding the spread of the Gospel, who knows what God might do? A Christian China would see children in an entirely different light, as fellow image-bearers of God Himself. Then large families would finally be recognized as the blessing they always have been.
Tim Challies offers up this list of bite-sized wisdom. Creating such a list seems like it could be an edifying task for anyone to figure out what, specifically, you’d want to share with your children, spouse, and maybe friends too.
The Women’s Movement was behind abortion, sexual “freedom,” IVF, egalitarianism, universal daycare, and more. But now, as Jonathon Van Maren shares, there is some good news to share.
Inflation is painful, but here in the West we’re still able to eat well for so very little.
