A Letter to the Doctor Who Wanted to Terminate My Baby. “I came to you during the most difficult time in my life. I was terrified, anxious and in complete despair. I didn’t know the truth yet about my baby, and that’s what I desperately needed from you. But instead of support and encouragement, you suggested we terminate our child. I told you her name, and you asked us again if we understood how low our quality of life would be with a child with Down syndrome. You suggested we reconsider our decision to continue the pregnancy.”

Is This Really the Kind of Judge You Want God to Be? Recently, a man raped a woman and got six months in jail. People were understandably upset at the judge who failed to make the punishment fit the crime. Amy Hall asks, “Is this the kind of judge we want God to be?”

Taking Back Christianese. A scholar takes on well known Christian phrases and analyzes their truthfulness and helpfulness. “We will do this by asking three questions:  (1) Why do people use this phrase?  (2) What is correct or helpful about this phrase?  and (3) What is problematic about this phrase?”

Pastoral Ministry is About Souls, Not Stats. Always a needed reminder for those in pastoral ministry. “Biblical credibility is not found in big stats.”

Anti-Christian California. A professing Christian who denies his homosexual desires is bullied out of his tenured college position and a law threatens the religious liberty of institutions like Biola University, my alma mater. Good ole’ California.

Would Hollywood Want the Disabled Dead?Dear Hollywood, why do you want me dead? That’s the haunting question eleven-year-old Ella Frech is asking, prompted by the new movie Me Before You.”

High Five Fails. Missed high fives: the epitome of social awkwardness.
