In two weeks, hundreds of thousands of people will join the March for Life in Washington, DC. What if there were three times that many praying?
As Eric Metaxas shared recently on "BreakPoint®," January 22nd is the 43rd anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision in our nation's history. With Roe v. Wade, seven robed men gave America some of the most permissive abortion-on-demand laws in the world. Since that time, nearly 60 million unborn children have been killed in the womb.
January is the month so many American Christians memorialize the unborn through Sanctity of Life Sunday (January ...Read Full Post »

This Christmas season, I think we all would acknowledge that recent events in our world including the acts of terror at home and abroad, have caused us to pause and ask, "where is the hope?"
As Eric Metaxas stated in a recent BreakPoint® commentary, "Tyrants, ancient and modern, have tried to erase any sign of Jesus. It didn't work then, and it won't work now." He goes onto share this important story . . .

How should we think practically and biblically about this complex and divisive issue? In addition to covering this issue on ...Read Full Post »

It's always a treat when one of our ministry partners comes to town and we have the opportunity to see them speak in person. Even better is when they come to speak at your own church! This was the case for me last weekend when BreakPoint® host and friend John Stonestreet served as our guest speaker at Saddleback Church this past weekend.
John was asked to be part of an apologetics lecture series tackling the "Great Questions of Life," addressing areas of origin, purpose, death, and authority. In John's message, he noted why these great questions really matter ...Read Full Post »

Have you heard the new "BreakPoint® This Week" broadcast yet? John Stonestreet is now joined by Ed Stetzer of LifeWay Research as they discuss hot topics of the week along with an invited guest to share expert commentary on the issues they are discussing.
Last weekend's program featured discussion about Pope Francis' visit to America, and what it means for cooperation between Evangelicals and Catholics, something Chuck Colson believed in deeply. Ed shared firsthand what it was like to be in DC for the Pope's visit and Dr. Timothy George shared his impression of Pope Francis, and his ...Read Full Post »
