Conventional Thinking: Not one red cent

Planned Parenthood has long presented themselves to the public as a legitimate health care provider, with society’s and women’s best interests in mind. Pro-life Christians have known the real story all along, that this is no ordinary health provider, but the nation’s largest abortion provider (responsible for more than 300,000 abortions per year). You see, the first rule of medicine is “do no harm,” but instead, Planned Parenthood has...

Conventional Thinking: Politics and problems

With the first of many presidential primary debates just around the corner, the 2016 election is looming large. Many are, even this moment, enthusiastically picking their favorite person for the presidency (and other offices), so the topic of politics will likely find its way into Sunday School classrooms, email conversations and other social circles in the days ahead. This can lead to problems and divisions among brothers and sisters...

As we begin the long climb back toward building a...

Conventional Thinking: What is ‘transgender’?

For weeks, Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner had the whole country talking about the issue of sexual identity and specifically transgender. Those who talked about what Jenner did from afar are now facing the reality of what this whole issue means for their community. It is no longer about a person on TV trying to go from being a man to a woman, it is about what the transgender boom means to “Main Street America,” to people we know. Some...

Conventional Thinking: Proverbs 31 fathers

On Mother’s Day, Proverbs chapter 31 offers a beautiful passage describing a wife and mother of noble character. With Father’s Day upon us, I suggest those very same Bible verses that describe this virtuous lady also have a few significant verses about a virtuous man, as well. Alongside the Proverbs 31 woman, we hear of a husband and father mentioned more than once, who exhibits at least three characteristics we men would do well to...
