As has been said, our culture wars are really battles over the dictionary. Whether it’s the euphemisms offered in place of the “A-word,” or the “redefinition” of terms like marriage, gender and even love, the devil’s strategy is to confuse people.
Our role? To share God’s definitions, revealing the world as God has actually made it.

Decades ago, pressures to join God-opposing unions prompted many Reformed folk to start their own businesses. We need that entrepreneurial spirit again.
Some will credit anything – chance, multiverses, or now, super-intelligent aliens – except God for the fine-tuning of the universe.
Jonathon Van Maren examines the authors’ worldviews from a “50 greatest books” list and finds a whole lot of nihilism. For a better top 50 list, see one on our website here.

We regularly hear that this or that could be evidence of life on Mars, or on a meteorite, or, as happened late last year, on Venus. And when clarifying information comes in months later disproving the notion, there aren’t the same-sized headlines offering up the correction.
