than four decades, the March for Life has become a familiar ritual in Washington.

in Congress before marching to the Supreme Court...The anti-abortion movement

Display of Faith Is 'Music To the Ears of Evangelicals'
Donald Trump won the election largely on the strength of evangelical Christian
voters and in the first days of his presidency, Mr. Trump's faith was already

of the church and extends to the commander-in-chief's "inner faith circle."....

Don’t Be Fooled— Trump Has Deep Religious Convictions
appear ready to give President Trump a pass when it comes to his lack of
religious knowledge, sensibilities or behavior, but I think that’s a mistake.
Trump is quite pious and his religious convictions run dangerously deep.
But his piety is not a reflection of a Christian faith. His piety is formed
by his understanding of what makes America a country like no other.....

dying. I don’t know exactly when, but sometime—I’ll be gone. This may come
as hard news, but the same thing is happening to you. We’re all dying.
That’s why I’ve begun planning my funeral. I’ve been thinking about it
off and on for several years, but it’s a job that is probably better done
sooner than later, so I’ve decided to put my wishes on the record before
it’s too late. I have some very particular ideas about what a Christian
funeral should be, and I want to be sure mine will fit that description.
Early Symptoms of Spiritual Danger
we wonder if an individual really has been converted. And sometimes we
have an inexplicable, ill-defined sense that something is missing. But
we cannot read the heart. Even so, we hear of friends—whose faith we never
doubted—turning away from Christ. Apostasy is the old, vigorous word to
describe this abandonment of Christ. The New Testament church was familiar
with it. ....

Ways Pastors Fail to Be Jesus-Full
churches, not only is sin never mentioned, because it hurts people’s feelings
or what-have-you, but the cross is rarely mentioned. And when the cross
is mentioned, because we don’t want to talk about sin, it becomes the great
affirmation of our specialness rather than the great punishment for our
Christian life, we are--as the Puritans used to say--to "keep short accounts
with God and men." So, what do short accounts look like in the Christian
Steps to Take If the Cartel and Bullies Run You Out of Your Church
personnel committee ran Frank out of the church. They never told the pastor
why they wanted him to resign. Jan was a very active layperson in the student
ministry. A cartel of jealous church members pushed her out of the church.
I wish such examples were anomalies, but they aren’t. To the contrary,
such incidents seem to be gaining traction. And, of course, they are both
the cause and the result of unhealthy churches....
