BreakPoint® Responds to Supremes' Ruling on Marriage

On Monday, June 29th, "BreakPoint®" airs a special broadcast with John Stonestreet who reacts to the Supreme Court's ruling on the definition of marriage.  He shares . . .

"I'd like to start by stating what should be obvious to the Christian: while five justices of the Supreme Court have ordered the legal recognition of same-sex marriage, the court cannot redefine marriage itself, just as Roe v. Wade did not redefine the sanctity of human life. And, just as Roe marked a new phase in the struggle for the sanctity of life and the dignity of new persons, Friday's ...

Are We Redefining Marriage?

We cannot sacrifice truth on the altar of "love." We have to be kind, we have to be compassionate, but we have to be truthful.  -Dennis Rainey

Hearing the decision handed down by the Supreme Court Justice last Friday-legalizing same-sex marriage in every state-was disappointing news to be sure, but not unexpected.  In fact, Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine, as well as FamilyLife's Board of Directors, met just days prior to Friday's court ruling to discuss how they would respond.  As Dennis put it in a letter to constituents, "Words matter."

This week on "FamilyLife Today," Dennis and ...

Definition of a Hero

The term "hero" is thrown around freely these days.  Seems its very definition has become relative in our society.

I think it's pretty easy to define what makes a hero though -- an ordinary person who does extraordinary things, someone who inspires us to continue on when life becomes challenging and, someone who doesn't consider themselves to be a hero in their own mind.

Joni Eareckson Tada is a hero to many - including me.  Decades later, in spite of a diving accident which left her paralyzed, she continues to minister to others globally as she lives out a life ...

Who Gets the Glory in Salvation?

John-Sorensen-Share-Life-Today"What must I do to be saved?"

This is the famous question the
Philippian jailer posed to Paul and Silas in the Book of Acts.  Yet even though 2,000 years have passed, many people today still don't know the correct answer to that question!

Dr. John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion, notes that there are three prevailing views today on how one is saved from sin:

1. You save yourself by being a good person (Glory be to me!).

2. You do your part in saving yourself by performing good works, and Jesus does His part by dying ...
