The importance of woman is not only huge but without her it is impossible for the man to exist and create.
Last month, a study in the Cognitive Science journal found that kids exposed to religion struggle with distinguishing between fantasy and reality. Are lesson plans geared toward kids to blame?
With the conclusion of the Pope's visit on Monday, we would do well to remember those in North Korea who to this day suffer religious persecution in silence.
The butterfly effect here is that this later-life suicide of one struggling person set in motion a public response including character attacks that, in turn, by extension, feel like an attack on all of us who struggle to stay sober and alive each day.
We claim to have a heart for the poor, for changing the world to more closely reflect the divinely inspired kingdom vision offered to us by Jesus. And yet, the tools required to make the changes are right before us. It's how we're choosing to employ them that betrays the darker nature of our all-too-human hearts.
Okay, okay, I know the title of my blog sounds pretty crazy to some, but trust me I'm about to tell you a truthful account of the day Jesus spoke to m...
Like my students, Jews have shunned Jesus and failed to recognize his dedicated commitment to Judaism -- a recognition that does not require accepting him as the Messiah.
We need fewer sighs and more plans; we need less complacency of an immoral world and more actions of moral women and men. If we don't, then we won't have "the fire next time." We'll have the fire right now.

As a gay Christian, I have only faced true discrimination for one of these identities. Here's a hint: It's not Christianity. When I tell someone I'm Christian, they don't come up with a series of offensive questions and remarks. I have never felt threatened or in danger when praying or practicing my Christian beliefs. Christianity is not an oppressed identity.
Why aren't we in the church leading this charge? Ought not we who have received the grace of God to participate in God's restorative work live out our devotion to God by our healthy lifestyles?
There's no right or wrong, to each his or her own, and there's little to no judgment. So whether you believe in a creator, have a different religion or are an atheist -- it really doesn't bother me. I'm OK with you, and what you choose to believe in or not believe in
