Is It Right For a Christian to Take Anti-Depressants?

Dear Dr. Moore, Not long ago, my doctor prescribed me as having a (relatively) mild form of depression. He put me on an anti-depressant. I hate the side effects, and I don’t like the way it makes me feel, but maybe I’ll get used to it. My biggest struggle is whether it is right to … Continued

What makes evangelicalism evangelical? A new book joins the argument

The Empire State’s moral revolution: New York State legalizes same-sex marriage

The legal, social, moral, and political maps of America were redefined last Friday night as the New York State Senate voted 33-29 to legalize same-sex marriage in the state.

Adoption, Identity, and Kung-Fu Panda

My shoulders tensed up, as I looked over at my sons, eating popcorn in the seats next to me. It’s not that I didn’t think there would ever be a film that might unearth some awkward and potentially traumatic family conversations. It’s just that I didn’t expect it would be Kung-Fu Panda Two.

The Church and the ‘Clobber Scriptures’ — The Bible on Homosexuality

Is the Church guilty of beating people with the Bible? As strange as that argument might sound, it is actually a powerful weapon in the hands of those who are determined to normalize homosexuality and same-sex marriage within the Church.
