There’s nothing in Christianity that would defend Terry Jones’ recent actions in Michigan. In fact, the Bible teaches that in order to win a person to the faith, one should employ methods of turning the other cheek, demonstrating compassion and being what the Bible calls the “salt of the earth.” Unfortunately for Mr. Jones, it appears [...]

On the surface, it appears that doing religious work on the job is what caused Douglas Kmiec to be ousted from his position in Malta. But, was it really Kmiec’s faith that got him into trouble? No. It was politics. Critics will argue it was his willingness to dedicate time to his religious work to [...]

If you’re like me, the concept of the end of time is a very intriguing subject. Perhaps you’ve explored the idea with a friend or colleague. Maybe you’ve even read about it in the Bible. But, nowhere is the topic more prevalent than in mainstream society. And that’s typically where things get messy. In the [...]

I saw this story online and found it really interesting. CNN reporter Eric Marrapodi writes how the Obama administration’s “don’t ask don’t tell” repeal could affect chaplains maintaining their role in the military. It’s true that many individuals took the role of chaplain because they feel a higher calling to be of service to the [...]

It’s a possibility, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Arizona and Northwestern University (reported at the American Physical Society).
