How a bird is built (5 minutes)

The creation of a bird is “an elaborate dance, it’s like a ballet taking place on a stage with thousands of cast members, all of them doing everything they are supposed to on cue, in the right order…and the right time.”

Should we ban billionaires?

The Tenth Commandment says that our neighbor’s wealth is none of our business. But the world is encouraging us to make it our business. As one columnist opined: “No one needs a billion dollars. No one deserves a billion dollars.”

But the interesting thing about God’s law is that not only is it a roadmap for pleasing God, but, because God loves us, obeying is also good for us. And, conversely, disobeying it will cause us harm. And as this article details, if we were to ban billionaires – if we were to covet their wealth and take it from them – we’d all be poorer for it.

Drafting our daughters? – Forcing women into combat is wrong

The US hasn’t used the military draft in 40 years but it still requires men, when they turn 18, to register. And now a court has ruled women need to too. But, as John Piper notes, God doesn’t call women to be frontline soldiers (and He hasn’t equipped them to this task either; in fact, “the average male has a greater total muscle mass and strength than 99.9 percent of females.”)

Is there a gene for marital happiness?

To the materialist, we are simply the sum of our parts. But the Christian knows we are more than biological computers – we are more than our genes.

Government is always religious…

Bob Dylan noted, we all “gotta serve somebody.” As Gary DeMar explains, the question is not, whether we will bring up God in politics, but only which god? Are we going to justify our policies on the basis of them being popular? Then democracy is our god. Are we going to anchor our positions on how much money they will save? Then a balanced budget has become our god.

But what might it look like if God was our God…even in politics?
