Fifty years ago, Joni Eareckson Tada was paralyzed from the neck down in a diving accident. Her life since has been a testimony to the strength of God perfected in weakness. Her ministry and advocacy on behalf of those with disabilities, her crusade for the most vulnerable against assisted suicide and euthanasia, her painting, her singing, and her joy in Christ have inspired millions. Our hosts look back on the last fifty years of ministry by this remarkable woman of God.
Meanwhile, an op-ed in the New York Times suggests that school choice has its roots in a racist past, tarring home and private school students with a ridiculous connect-the-dots argument. John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer point out that this piece minimizes how badly public schools have failed many of our nation’s students, and how fully government education has embraced an anti-religious worldview.
Finally, our hosts take the media to task for reporting still more non-stories about “transgender men” becoming pregnant and having children. By this, of course, they mean biological women who identify as men. This ideology, suggests John, has its roots in the ancient heresy of Gnosticism, which seeks to define the human person apart from God’s created design and intention.
