  • Two Takes on Ferguson

    We’re struggling here at BreakPoint to know what to say about the mess that is Ferguson. Officially, I mean. I’m sure we all have our own opinions (right, Shane?).

    Today I’ve read two perspectives I hadn’t thought about. The first, Dana Milbank’s column at the Washington Post. He’s left of center (obviously, if you’ve ever read him) but is never afraid to criticize his own side. At any rate, I recommend his column about what he calls the “pathetic” performance of prosecutor Bob McCulloch. I found it disturbing.
  • New Affirmation of a Time-Tested Beauty

    Focus on the Family president Jim Daly reflects on the recent interfaith Vatican event “The Complementarity of Man and Woman: An International Colloquium.” He remarks that 14 different faith traditions affirm the necessary gender distinctions in marriage, despite what some in the world are pushing. Word even has it that the Evangelical Protestants were the ones getting the standing ovations. Does this set the Reformation back or forward?

    In any case, all reports seem to indicate the beauty and power evident at this conference. By power, I mean the strength of ideas and a community gathered around shared belief. This is no small encouragement for those feeling weary from the marriage wars in the U.S.

    While there is much to comment on about the colloquium, Jim’s main point is worth repeating. The conference ended on a sublimely beautiful note. Take a few minutes to go to the first link above and read these words of affirmation of natural marriage.READ FULL ARTICLE »

  • The Danger of Worship without Thinking

    Can bad Christian art actually drive someone away from Christianity? Here's one man's story of how it happened to him. This is controversial stuff, I know, but I think it's important. It's never a bad or a sacreligious idea to ask ourselves if we're truly giving God our best work, with equal input from our hearts and our intellects, or if we're settling for mediocrity just because it feels good.READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Not My Calling?

    Like many of us, I like things to go my way. I want life to make sense and have an order to it. I like it when things work properly.

    Of course, this makes being a dad a real challenge. In fact, it makes living in a fallen world a real pain in the spirit. This past week, I’ve been reminded of my deep, innate selfishness, as inconvenience and disorder plan a visit to my doorstep.
