Fundamentalism versus Evangelicalism — There is a Difference

Today, President Obama stated, in part, the following regarding religion: “Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said.

The Proper Response to Depression

With the passing of legendary comedian Robin Williams by suicide last Monday, I’d like to join the chorus — in whatever small way I can — of those who wish to promote ways of dealing with the kind of depression that can unfortunately lead to suicide.

He Is Risen!

  If you want to boil down the difference between Christianity and any other faith, creed or philosophy that claims its origin in a higher power, “he is risen” is the great, distinctive and exclusive marker for Christianity. Even Christianity becomes nothing more than a bunch of rules to follow if it weren’t for Jesus […]
