Legalising Legislative Deception: Judge Sutton and the Individual Mandate

Orin Kerr is proud of himself that Judge Jeffrey Sutton agrees with him on the individual mandate rulig: I think Judge Sutton’s separate opinion is excellent, but then it’s easy for me to say: Judge Sutton’s views closely match what I’ve been saying here and elsewhere for a long time, so maybe this just proves …

Taking Evangelicals on a "Wild Goose Chase"

That's what they're hoping to do at least: The Wild Goose Festival, an ongoing four-day revival camp in North Carolina featuring music, yoga, liberal talk and embracing of gays and lesbians, is facing heat from evangelicals who say it is aimed at selling gnostic beliefs to the youth. “Most Religious Left groups that advocated leftist …

Book Review: Peoples of the New Testament World: An Illustrated Guide

One of the challenges of New Testament study at any level is simply putting ourselves--and the events and people depicted therein--into the world in which they actually happened and lived.  The Greco-Roman and Jewish world at the turn of the first millennium has many features that are on their face unfamiliar to us, yet are …

Have Pentecostals (and Others) Got the Idea of the Calling to Ministry Backwards?

Month of Sundays: Servanthood

No, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to take the first place among you, must be your slave; Just as the Son of Man came, not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:27-28) The disciples were …

FPL’s Port of Palm Beach Smokestacks: Another South Florida Landmark Bites the Dust

Month of Sundays: Provision

And my God, out of the greatness of his wealth, will, in glory, fully satisfy your every need, through your union with Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19) It was time to go home. We had experienced another good cruise in the Bahamas, but it was time to get back to the good old U.S.A. So we …
