The Obergefell v. Hodges decision in biblical perspective

 (By Brad Hughes, Centennial Fellow) The US Supreme Court decision on Obergefell v.

Twenty Fifteen: Here’s what one informed observer sees coming

(Centennial Fellow) 2014 was the year of unravelling for President Obama as his party received a historic drubbing at the election polls, his administration was plagued with scandals and incompetence, and his international diffidence troubled allies and emboldened foes. 2015 will see a further progression of the Obama legacy: an increase in the $18 trillion debt that can’t be repaid, more division within the nation and between the governing parties, more brazen defiance regarding separation of powers, and a destabilized global political environment where US leadership is woefully lacking.

Why Christianity is exclusive and that’s good

Christians must embrace and defend the exclusive claims made by Jesus of Nazareth despite growing opposition in America from secularists, pluralists, universalists, and other religious worldviews, such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. There is growing cultural pressure in America from pluralists and universalists to assert that all go to heaven, all behaviors are acceptable, no one can judge, and social justice (equal outcomes for all) should be a societal goal. Excepting the reference to heaven, secularists are typically congruent with these goals. As the claims of Christ differ substantially from the pluralists, universalists, and secularists of our time, it is prudent to examine the dichotomy of preference and truth claims, the laws of logic, and what Jesus actually said in an effort to speak truth to the world, represent Him accurately, and honor Him faithfully in word and deed.
