As we finish the year we conclude with the #1 post of 2015 in terms of reader views. As you read, regardless of your personal feelings about the Duggars, the principle of this post is Biblical and unchanged.
Last night Norma Jean and I watched Megyn Kelly’s exclusive interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as they discussed the child molestation charges against their son, Josh.
Leading up to the interview we saw clips of the intense criticism toward the Duggar family from various news outlets. They have been called “hypocrites” and much worse. The vitriolic venom emanating from some sources has been excoriating.

This June post was very popular with our readers and was shared hundreds of times on facebook. It was the second most read for 2015.
Even if you’re not a “news junkie” by now everyone has heard that the Supreme Court of the United States ruled Friday that same-sex marriage is legal is all 50 states.
The reaction has been swift and predictable. Homosexuals and liberals are ecstatic. Conservatives and Bible Believers have denounced the decision.
Joe Ortwert of the Missouri Family Policy Council, called the decision ”a reckless ruling that will have a devastating impact on the future of our nation. This disgraceful decision is the latest most evident sign of the moral bankruptcy of the U. S. Government, the moral corruption of its leaders, the vile decadence of American culture and society, and the growing godlessness of the American people.”

Although only written about 6 weeks ago, this post obviously resonated with many readers since it received so many hits in such a short time, coming in at #3 for the year
Perhaps you’ve heard the story about a man who was stranded on a desert island for many, many years. One day, while strolling along the beach, he spotted a ship in the distance. This had never happened in all the time he was on the island, so he was very excited about the chance of being rescued.
Immediately, he built a fire on the beach and generated as much smoke as possible. It worked! Soon, the ship was heading his way. When the ship was close enough to the island, a dinghy was dispatched to investigate the situation. The man on the island was overjoyed with the chance to be rescued and met his saviors as they landed.

Bruce Jenner’s story was big news in 2015 and our commentary on it was the 4th most read post of the year according to WordPress
By now only the most isolated of people and the Amish, as reported by Jesse Watters last night, have not heard that Bruce Jenner is now a woman!
In the past several days Jenner has been lauded as courageous by most of the Hollywood elite, the liberal media and even the President of the United States. After Jenner changed his name and sent out his first Tweet on his new Twitter account, President Obama retweeted it with this comment, “It takes courage to share your story.”

Mary Gonzalez, a Texas Legislator, is trying to trying to change people’s minds about gender diversity. Mary is a pansexual.
Pansexual? Yes. In 60+ years on earth I’ve never heard of a pansexual. I guess I live too sheltered a life! So, of course, I googled it.

As we continue our countdown of the top 10 posts of 2015, this one was ranked #6. It was discussed, debated, and disputed. In light subsequent revelations of Josh Duggar’s adultery and admission that “I’m the biggest hypocrite there ever was” it does change the perspective of what I wrote at the time. However, the Biblical truth remains unchanged and should be read from that point of view.
Last week I posted this question: “Does Sin Negate the Christian Faith?”
It was in response to the considerable media coverage about the family of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and the revelation that their son, Josh, was guilty of “inappropriate touching” about 12 years ago.
My post was very clear that I was not condoning Josh Duggar’s sinful behavior when he was a teenager. Neither was I attempting to pass judgment on the response of the Duggars, nor to defend them. . My post had one fundamental point: Sin in the life of a Believer does not invalidate the Bible teaching on morality, nullify the Truth, or negate the Christian Faith.

“GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS” screamed the headline from Thursday’s New York Daily News following Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino leaving 14 dead and 21 wounded.
The subheading said, “As the latest bunch of innocent Americans are left laying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.”

“The headline caught my eye: “Is it OK to live together before marriage’”, wrote Rubel Shelly in a recent Fax of Life.
Shelly said he knew what the answer would be before he read it. So did I! The internet is filled with blogs with titles like “5 Reasons you shouldn’t say ‘I Do’ Before Living Together First.”

Based on reader views this post came in at #9 for 2015. Who would have guessed that Trump would still be leading in the polls 4 months later after these comments?!
Last Thursday night I joined 24 million other Americans and watched the Republican Presidential Debate on Fox News. While I did have two or three candidates that I was particularly interested in seeing, I admit I was curious what kind of fireworks Donald Trump would ignite! And it didn’t take long!
In the beginning Trump admitted that he would not commit to unconditional support the GOP nominee. Unless it was him! Then came Megyn Kelly’s question and Trump’s answer that people and pundits are still buzzing about.

Every Saturday the Kansas City Star has a column entitled Voices of Faith. They pose a question and then ask two local religious leaders to address it. Often their answers consist of personal opinions, particular denominational doctrine, or concepts from pop culture.
Last Saturday’s question was “What’s the purpose of Hell?”
