    Is God Sending a Message of Hope to America?

    Although I am a believer, not a skeptic, I’m a thinking believer. I’m not impressed with the “discovery” of the face of Jesus in a piece of wood. Or the map of America appearing in a bowl of melting ice cream. My Ph.D. is in ancient Semitic texts and languages, and I look for hard

  • Confusion Nation: What Does the Supreme Court Decision Against Coercion Really Say?

    Last week the Supreme Court issued its landmark decision that Lorie Smith, a Colorado-based Christian graphic artist and web designer, did not have to create content that violated her beliefs. In response, Clara Jeffery, editor-in-chief of Mother Jones, tweeted, “perhaps gay stylists, designers, caterers and planners should start withholding services from Christian conservatives and see

    No Matter What the Midterms Bring, It Is Still ‘Revival or We Die’

    Every day there are examples of Americans pushing back against the agenda of the radical Left. And every day there are more signs that there could be a major political reaction against the leftist agenda in the midterm elections. But even with the best possible electoral outcome, without sweeping revival in the church, America could

    Michael Brown: I Understand Why Some Call Us Hateful

    More than 15 years ago, God called me to “reach out and resist,” meaning, reach out to the gay community with compassion and resist the gay agenda with courage. From that moment on, I knew that I would be branded a hater. But I do understand why. For some, of course, it’s a matter of

  • A Friendly Word to My ‘Cautiously Charismatic’ Colleagues

    A Friendly Word to My ‘Cautiously Charismatic’ Colleagues

    In recent years, I have heard Christian leaders describe themselves as “open but cautious” when it comes to the gifts and power of the Spirit for today, including tongues and prophecy and healing. Others have described themselves as “charismatics with seatbelts.” But is that really a biblical position to hold? Is it a healthy spiritual

    Plea to Pastors: ‘You Cannot Be Silent’ About LGBTQ Issues

    If you have accepted God’s calling on your life to serve His people as a shepherd and a leader, then you have my respect. I honor you for your service, and I recognize your sacrifice. Pastoral ministry is anything but easy, and only those who have served as pastoral leaders know the immense pressures you

    Christian Leaders, Please Don’t Publicly Celebrate Your Liberty to Drink

    I do not write this article to throw stones. I write it to save lives. That’s why I make this heartfelt (and anguished) plea: If you are a pastor or ministry leader and you believe that, according to the Bible, you have the liberty to drink alcohol (without drunkenness), please don’t turn that liberty into

  • Why I Am Hopeful About the New Israeli Government

    Why I Am Hopeful About the New Israeli Government

    Evangelical Christians who have become used to the effective leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, may have grave concerns about the newly formed coalition government. But I believe there is good reason to hope that this new government might be just what Israel needs. When I was asked by The New

    To Sean Hannity: Please Do Not Make Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner Into a Hero

    I had just started writing this article, urging my conservative colleagues not to make Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner into a hero, when I spotted Ian Haworth’s op-ed about Jenner on the Daily Wire, titled, “Saying One Obviously True Thing Doesn’t Make You A Conservative Hero.” Yet, although our overall concerns are the same, the reasoning beyond

  • The Trump Reelection Prophecy That You Never Heard About

    The Trump Reelection Prophecy That You Never Heard About

    To this moment, there are “prophets” claiming that Trump is the legitimate president in God’s sight and that, very shortly, he will be restored to power by the military. And it is “prophets” like this who made headlines last year as their guarantees of Trump’s reelection fell to the ground. But there are other prophetic

    Sen. Josh Hawley Gets the Last Laugh on Cancel Culture

    Last October, Simon & Schuster, a giant in the publishing industry, announced it would be releasing Sen. Josh Hawley’s book titled The Tyranny of Big Tech.

    When God Steps Down From Heaven, Expect a Shaking of This Nation

    In a certain sense, God’s presence fills the universe. Yet there are times in history when God manifests His presence in a particular place or in a particular way that is unique and distinct and powerful and transformative. We call those times “revival.” During such times in the past, children would say, “Did you hear

  • Kingdom Leaders Make Unified Call for Prophetic Accountability

    Kingdom Leaders Make Unified Call for Prophetic Accountability

    Throughout the Bible, prophetic ministry played a central role to the point that, if you take it out of the Bible, you no longer have a Bible. At the same time, prophetic ministry presented many challenges, with false prophets doing as much damage as true prophets did good. The apostle Paul summed up the possibilities

    What We Learned When Joy Behar Called ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner ‘He’

    In response to Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner announcing his bid to oust California’s governor Gavin Newsom, Joy Behar said on The View, “He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign.” Later, Behar added, “I think that he should—she, rather, should take a seat and let somebody with the credentials take over a major state like
