Much of the Christian-professing world has been observing Lent, a time of self-denial in preparation for Easter.

  2. Lawrence Taylor (guest columnist)

Over the last two years there has been an increased attack on the idea of godly masculinity. The idea of what masculinity is—and the need for it—has been constantly debated. The last presidential campaign highlighted this attack. Even simply not voting for former Secretary of State and U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was condemned by some as an...

The World Next Door

  2. John Wheeler (guest columnist)

After NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong took his “one small step for man,” no one who knew of the accomplishment could ever look at the Moon in the same way again. Before, the Moon was a distant, ever-changing light in the sky, serving man in various ways (some of them described in Genesis 1:14–18, Deuteronomy 33:14 and Psalm 104:19), and sometimes even worshiped (...

  2. J. Davy Crockett III

Some names live in infamy. The memory and names of those individuals have been seared into the historical fabric of the countries and cultures in which they did treacherous deeds. It seems that no country or region has lacked ignominious characters whose names have become reviled. In the United States, the name of Benedict Arnold—the general who, greedy for...

Expelled student Nikolas Cruz entered the building, killing at least 17 and injuring many others.

Do Not Speak Evil of a Ruler

  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

Politicians the world over receive a lot of criticism. Opposing parties denigrate their opponents to win the hearts of the citizenry to their side. During election cycles the vilification is frenzied as attack upon attack is leveled. But should a Christian be caught up in reviling the leaders of their nation, state or city?

Thirsty for Knowledge

  1. 24th February 2018
  2. Marc Arseneault

I like days like today. Why is that, you may ask? Well, because today I learned something new. For many years I wrote down the numbers that are on the sides of my car tires—you know, the ones in which the last number is the radius of the wheel—but I never knew what the rest of them meant until now.
