Discovered: new mode of flight!

Have you heard of a beetle with feathers? It wasn’t so long ago that scientists thought that the beetle in this article didn’t fly at all, but just got carried along by the wind. But it turns out this little guy uses feathered wings to fly. To read about this, and two other remarkable beetles, click on the link above. Or check out the 4-minute video below.

Kevin DeYoung on the pretense of Pride month

DeYoung makes two key points: 1) that by marketing their movement on “pride” – on feelings of self-worth – the homosexual movement evaded a rational evaluation of their agenda, and 2) Pride month might be an indication that they dost protest too much.

“If you need the worlds of sports, entertainment, education, media, and government to celebrate your sexuality in order to feel proud, maybe your conscience is trying to tell you something.”

Pro-life MP kept out of Parliament for not disclosing her vaccination status

On April 25, 2020, the The Globe and Mail ran a column headlined “We are giving up our freedoms in the fight against COVID-19. The question is will we get them back?” Over two years later, Cathay Wagantall’s exclusion from Parliament shows that’s still the question.

Jesus’ response to massacres – why?

“[Jesus] answer today would seem rather abrupt and terse. He made sure first that they understood that such human disasters are not always correlated with some particular sin on the part of the victims…. But, what does he say? I tell you ‘unless you repent, you shall all likewise perish.’…”

Don’t say “they”: Why pronouns matter

Pronouns may not seem like a fight worth having, but as Chesterton said, “The Church and the heresies always used to fight about words, because they are the only thing worth fighting about.”

Man kills 6; Supreme Court rules 150 years is “cruel and unusual” (1o-min read)

ARPA Canada weighs in on a recent Canadian Supreme Court decision that says “rehabilitation is the basis upon which all criminal law is based.” Really? How does that compare to biblical justice?

Homeschooling movie in US theaters June 13 and 14

The Left is getting increasingly brazen about declaring our children as being the State’s. Christians need to stand together and make clear that God has given us parents the responsibility and privilege to be our children’s primary educators (whether that is with some help from a private school or not). This new film from Kirk Cameron looks like it could be a great encouragement. It’s playing only in American theaters this next week but is sure to be released soon for online streaming, so be sure to check out the trailer below.

The Left rediscovers biology (3 min) At the risk of ruining the joke, this video is deeper than its creator knows. When we reject God's standard - not only for gender but anything else – we're left not simply with another standard, but ultimately with no standard at all. That's because whatever else is proposed won't have a foundation, and pushed to its logical end, it will topple. And, as in this video, when a real reliable standard is sought, the seekers will then find themselves nearing the standard God has put in place all along. A peculiar disapproval of gay pride (10-minute read) There is a specific way that Christians are called to disapprove of homosexuality, based not simply on distaste, but on the truth of God's Word. As John Piper writes: "Christians do not base what we ought to do on what we feel like doing — or not doing. Desires can be deceitful. Rather, we are to “understand what the will of the Lord is.” God’s truth, not our desire, points the way to freedom: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Some non-Christians may argue that the desire for sodomy is enough to make it good. But by that same principle, the feeling of revulsion toward sodomy is also good. If it feels good, it’s okay. Therefore, sodomy is okay, and revulsion at sodomy is okay. A Christian does not think this way." So many beetles, so little time? How do we account for 350,000 species of beetles if Noah's flood was only 4,500 years ago? 44 ways to keep your kids off of screens Some of these are fantastic. Others...less so.
