Rollen Stewart became known as the John 3:16 guy. Remember him?
Stewart wore a rainbow colored wig and attended sporting events either wearing a T-shirt or holding up a sign that read “John 3:16.” At football games, he would often be sitting behind the goal posts, or a baseball game behind home plate, so the cameras would televise his message.

This was Sunday’s headline in the Christian Post:
60% of adults under 40 say Jesus isn’t only way to salvation;
equal to Buddha, Muhammad

Yesterday’s news was dominated by two major stories: What we can do to stop school shootings like the one in Parkland, Florida, last week and the death of evangelist Billy Graham.

I recently came across an article from Forbes entitled “Why The World Is Getting Better And Hardly Anyone Notices It” written by Steve Denning.
“Read the news and you can see that the world is going to hell in a hand-basket—and fast!” writes Denning. “Terrorism, nuclear weapons, economic stagnation, social unrest, autocratic leaders, structural unemployment, deskilling, growing hopelessness, the opioid epidemic, increasing inequality, xenophobia, economic migrations, recessions, financial bubbles and crashes, recessions, depressions—the list goes on.” Continue reading →

“College-aged millennials today are far more likely than the general population to be religiously unaffiliated,” according to the Pew Research Center. “This is true when they are compared to previous generations as well.”
Furthermore Pew documents that millennials are the least outwardly religious American generation, where “one in four are unaffiliated with any religion, far more than the share of older adults when they were ages 18 to 29.’” Continue reading →

“Americans Will Now Lose Social Capital If They Hang Around Evangelicals”
The above was a recent headline from TheChristianPost.com. It was based on interviews with various Reformed theologians including R.C. Sproul, John MacArthur, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President, Al Mohler.
They were asked how they believed mainstream American culture was compelling the “mushy middle” of out the church. Continue reading →

Homosexual acceptance. Same-sex marriage. Transgender bathrooms. Just when you think you’ve heard it all. Then you hear something that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief. And almost speechless.

What happened to the Boy Scout oath?
“On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”
Duty to God? Morally Straight? These words are but a dim memory of what the Boy Scouts of America used to be. Continue reading →
