  • Blog Post: Do Social Justice Activities Detract From the Gospel?

    Activities that fall into the category of “social justice” (like fighting poverty, digging wells for clean water, and working in inner city communities) are becoming popular in many of our churches and Christian circles today. But do you assume that social justice and the Gospel go hand-in...
  • Blog Post: America Loves Abortion the Most

    I found this color-coded map of Europe with corresponding descriptions of abortion rules on Justin Taylor's blog yesterday and all I can say is ... Congratulations fellow Americans! No other country in Europe can boast of the freedoms we give women to kill their preborn babies at any stage of...
  • Blog Post: The Rise and Lies of Tele-Politics

    We published a TrueU article yesterday which talks about how much television has influenced the way we do politics in the U.S. It's quite amazing, really. The author, Michael Bauman, first talks about how much time we spend watching TV and how it really has changed our reality into fantasy:...
  • Blog Post: 12-Year-Old Makes Impact With Pro-Life Speech

    As a children's magazine editor, I love a great kid story. And today I read one.

  • Blog Post: College Makes Christians Liberal

    Research shows that going to college makes you more liberal. Here's an article from Higher Ed  on how college liberalizes evangelical Protestants. Higher education has always been celebrated by some (and criticized by others) for exposing students to ideas that may conflict with those...
  • Blog Post: Should Christians Trust the Government?

    Do you trust the government? For many people, that's the common question at the heart of several stories lately: The IRS targeting conservatives, the DOJ spying on journalists, the NSA tracking everyone's phone calls. A lot of things may influence how you answer the question, including your politics...
  • Blog Post: The End of All Restrictions on Abortion?

    On his blog today , Dr. Albert Mohler addresses "fetus fatigue" as it relates to this year's presidential election. And he does so by acknowledging that some of reasons for it are understandable. I can understand the fatigue. So little progress seems to have been made. So much ground has...
  • Blog Post: Greener Than Thou

    Just in time for Earth Day, Pew Research released the results of a study examining views on global warming among religious groups. They're not surprising really, essentially breaking along the political leanings of the groups represented in the survey ... except for black Protestants. Here's...
  • Blog Post: Your Beliefs about Homosexuality Matter

    When I was twentysomething, I had big ideas, still do. It's just that when I was fresh from college, a mere 21-year-old, it was hard to get anyone to take my big ideas very seriously. Not enough life experience, not enough maturity, not enough gray hair. (For better or worse, that last one is no...
  • Blog Post: A Global Warming Primer

    It's honestly not a priority for us here at Boundless . It's frankly not something I think we need to spend much time discussing. But for the sake of truth, I think it's become necessary to address head-on some misunderstandings about this divisive issue. 1) So-called "greenhouse...

    Under Roe v. Wade , which of these are allowed to perform abortions? a. Licensed physician b. Nurse practitioner c. Resident assistant d. Registered nurse e. All of the above That's one of 12 questions from Roe IQ designed to "measure the current awareness of Roe and its effects, as...
  • Blog Post: When Satire Crosses the Line

    There is an unspoken rule about making fun of the special needs community: you just shouldn't do it. For example, when President Obama made the comment on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last March that his below average bowling skills were "like the Special Olympics," the Internet exploded...
  • Blog Post: Bhutto's Death Significant

    I rarely tackle anything of a political nature on this blog, but when Pakistan's former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday, the event felt significant. As my family watched the news reports, I told my dad, "This seems like a news report you'd see in a movie about the...
  • Blog Post: Are You a 'Global Warming Denier' Yet?

    Let me just quote from the article : A new report points to a sharp reduction of weather stations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in cooler locations around the world since 1990. Could that be why global temps have seen a steady rise over the last 20 years? What?...

  • Blog Post: Forced Diversity Has Opposite Effect

    It's hard to remember a day when diversity was just a word in the dictionary. For decades now, it's been a cultural imperative, a heavy-handed expectation, an admissions goal from preschool to Ph.D. programs. Now a new study suggests maybe the glorification of diversity wasn't such a good...

  • Blog Post: Brit Hume's Clarion Call

    It wasn't beautifully done. As a matter of fact, it seemed a little out of place on such a big stage as Fox News Sunday. But pundit Brit Hume's on-air diagnoses of Tiger Woods' problem was right on -- Tiger needs the redemptive power of Jesus Christ, not Buddha. The question to the panel...
  • Blog Post: Illustrating Absurdity

    Back in January '07 when Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives, she had this to say, We have waited over 200 years, never losing faith. We waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting. Women...
  • Blog Post: Is Ultrasound our Wilberforce?

    To date, no politician has been able to do with abortion what William Wilberforce did with slavery: namely, expose it for the evil it was and lead the charge to abolish it in England. All that may be changing. Though it's not a person leading the charge, nor is it legislation that may finally...
  • Blog Post: Top General Considers Homosexual Acts "Immoral"

    A top U.S. general is getting slack from some in the media and gay lobby for his statement that he believes homosexual acts to be "immoral." According to the Chicago Tribune , Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: "I believe homosexual acts between two individuals...
  • Blog Post: The Time to Vote is Now

    My wife and I voted last night. Hearing that our state ballot would be particularly long this year, we signed up a couple months ago for the vote-by-mail option.
