THE BIG ISSUE Inpart 1, we looked at the issue of life in the womb and the image of God.

Can Christians be pro-choice?

THE BIG ISSUE I think most people agree that we should not have the legal choice to kill another person simply because we want to. Our nation is divided on whether or not we should have the legal choice to abort a baby in the womb, largely because as a culture we don't believe that a baby in the womb is actually a person, or a human life. Our nation says that every person...

Stop Letting Satan Steal Your Freedom

I have this painting hanging up by my desk at work that reads, You make me free with the word free in big bold letters. It's referencing Galatians 5:1, "For freedom Christ has set us free, stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1 It's not the most beautiful thing I've ever painted to say the least, but it gets the job done. I...
