For the past 30 years, no virture has been more praised in these columns than "tolerance."  In the same time period, no attictude has been more condemned than "intolerance."  It is time to take a look at what "tolerance" has done to America. 

 

We have tolerated every kind of slovenly dress and have become a nation of slobs.  We have tolerated every kind of sexual behavior and reaped a harvest of deadly disease, unwed mothers and fatherless children.  We have tolerated ...

Rejecting Apathy!

Never before in the history of our nation has it been more important for Christains to act on their convictions. I was reminded of what a pivitol point it is for American when Chuck Colson recently shared on a BreakPoint® Comentary:

"If we value our liberties, if we believe in the most fundamental principles upon which our civilization is based, then we owe it to our God and to future generations to speak out." 

There's a lot going on in government right now that's especially critical for believers. When I think of conscious clause for medical professionals being ...
