A monarch’s journey (3 min)

This butterfly accomplishes its fantastic journey in not simply a matter of months, but a matter of generations – they fly to a refuge that only their great-great-grandparents have seen.

When Martyn Lloyd-Jones confronted a pastor who loved controversy and denunciation

Sometimes bluntness and harsh words are needed – sometimes the sheep have to be warned in no uncertain terms about a dangerous idea, and the person pushing it (Ez. 33:6). But in this age of “hot takes” and online bashing, Lloyd-Jones demonstrates what God is teaching in Proverbs 15:1.

Alcohol use and the Christian

Chris Gordon makes the biblical case.

Difference between conservative and liberal Christians

“The root of our disagreement is this: [my liberal Christian friend] sees the Bible as quite clear on the second greatest commandment but open to interpretation about the first.”

How God grabbed hold of this liberal lesbian professor (15-min read)

Pride month is done, but in Canada, Pride Season persists. So how can we help Christians and others who are struggling with same-sex temptations? One way is to point them to testimonies like Rosaria Butterfield’s here (the author of Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert) which show “that the solution to all sin is Christ’s atoning blood.”

What is a woman? (5 min)

When Will Witt asks university students to define “What is a woman?” they can’t do it. Why not? We know. In divorcing the word “woman” from its biological underpinnings, the world has had to tie it to personal feelings instead. But that doesn’t make any sense: what does it mean to feel like a woman, if no one can even define what a woman is?

Witt is wonderful here, but Christians need to go further still. It can be fun to beat up on the world’s nonsense, but exposing lies isn’t enough. We need to share God’s Truth, that He has made us male and female (Gen. 1:27).

Is Joe Biden Catholic? Joe Biden thinks he can be for the murder of 800,000 unborn children a year and still be a good Roman Catholic. While we'd love him to turn to Christ and away from Rome, we can thank God for how He is using the Roman Catholic Church's pro-life position to highlight how monstrous Biden's abortion stance is. Reclaiming the peppered moth from evolution (10-minute read) This icon of evolution isn't an example of evolution at all. Should Christians identify with their homosexual or alcoholic temptations? The Presbyterian Church of America is debating to what extent Christians should identify with their same-sex attraction. While the act is recognizes as sinful, some are touting the inclination as being defining. The space between courting and hooking up Tim Challies explains how both hooking up and courting can put a lot of weight on a first date. The real Lord of the Flies (15-minute read) For English teachers out there, here's a real-life Lord of the Flies account, but when these 6 boys were stranded on an island for more than a year, they didn't descend into the savagery described in William Golding's classic. Was Golding simply wrong about human nature? That might be the impression the article leaves. But as John Stonestreet notes, it downplays the religious convictions of the boys. Their Judeo-Christian (in this case Catholic) upbringing gave them insights into our fallen nature, and the need to turn to God. What about medical marijuana? (3 min) Douglas Wilson, author of Devoured by Cannabis, addressing medical marijuana usage. Lest there be any confusion, he is not talking about using CBD oil, as his case against marijuana usage (made in his book, and other videos) is that it is an intoxicant, which CBD oil is not. ...
