Yale Law School Yanks Stipends From Students Who Work For Christian Firms

Yale has found a roundabout way to blacklist legal and nonprofit organizations that don't adhere to Yale’s understanding of gender identity.

On March 25, one month after the controversy, Yale Law School announced via email that it was extending its nondiscrimination policy to summer public interest fellowships, postgraduate public interest fellowships, and loan forgiveness for public interest careers. The school will no longer provide financial support for students and graduates who work at organizations that discriminate... Continue Reading

Why You Procrastinate (It Has Nothing to Do With Self-Control)

Procrastination is an emotion regulation problem, not a time management problem.

We must realize that, at its core, procrastination is about emotions, not productivity. The solution doesn’t involve downloading a time management app or learning new strategies for self-control. It has to do with managing our emotions in a new way.   If procrastination isn’t about laziness, then what is it about? If you’ve ever put... Continue Reading

Practices of Love in an Unimoon Era

Christianity offers something better than dating yourself.

Modern life continues apace, except arrogant scientists and millennials don’t think they need God anymore. But this is certainly a false representation. What’s most interesting about our secular age is not primarily that it’s happening but that it’s accompanied by a garden of spiritual, emotional, and social maladies: Epidemics of loneliness, isolation, suicide, despair, polarization,...

Progressives Say Abortion is the Key Progressive Cause

Democrats must not only be pro-abortion, they must support completely unlimited ‘reproductive rights,’ funded by the government with the aid of all taxpayers regardless of religion or conscience.

The article is a blistering attack on Bernie Sanders!  His offense?  He is insufficiently pro-abortion.  How can that be, since Sanders has a 100% lifetime voting record from Planned Parenthood?  As Desanctis says, 100% is not good enough for abortion radicals.  Sanders endorsed a candidate for mayor of Omaha who had once approved a measure...

Lessons Learned from the School of Rejection

How do we respond when those hopes don’t materialize?

Ever since my undergraduate days, I dreamed of studying at Oxford. So as I finished up my master of divinity degree at Princeton Seminary, I began planning and praying that the Lord would make a way for us to move to Oxford. In an amazing blessing, I was given a full fellowship to pursue a... Continue Reading

What Christians Can Learn From Drew Carey About Subverting Culture

Mere blobs of tissue do not laugh but humans, made of tissue, made in the image of God laugh.

Polls suggest that opinions on abortion are changing for the better. Being patient has come at a terrible cost to human life—probably 60 million humans have been murdered in utero since 1973 and abortion is still an issue but abortion clinics are closing and the cultural tide seems to be shifting toward life.   Drew Carey is...

We All Live in Marx’s World Now

The emergence of the term "cultural Marxism," and even its deployment in inconsequential Twitter exchanges, points to an interesting and perhaps disturbing pathology of our times.

It was the 19th-century philosopher G. W. F. Hegel who forcefully argued that human selves do not exist in isolation as self-conscious beings, but only have self-consciousness as they relate to others. Here is how he expresses it in his Phenomenology of Spirit: “Self-consciousness exists in and for itself when, and by the fact that, it... Continue Reading

Riches to Rubbish–Van Gogh’s Unstable View of the Bible

Van Gogh's story is shot through with complexity.

Van Gogh’s story is shot through with complexity, and I do not intend to over simplify it, but one compelling question must be asked. How did a man who was in his youth so earnest for the Word of God, for the gospel, for Christ, for devoting his life to serving God–how did he come... Continue Reading

Christian U Flip-Flops on Gay Relationships

At the direction of the Azusa Pacific University’s Board of Trustees, the institution will update its student handbook, striking language in it that barred LGBTQ relationships.

“APU is an open-enrollment institution, which does not require students to be Christian to attend, and the handbook conveys our commitment to treating everyone with Christ-like care and civility,” Mark Stanton said in a statement to the newspaper. “Our values are unchanged and the APU community remains unequivocally biblical in our Christian evangelical identity.”  ...

The West is a Third World Country: The Relevance of Philip Rieff

Rieff is today justly famous for his 1966 book, The Triumph of the Therapeutic: Uses of Faith after Freud.

Cultural conservatives face a time when it is not simply a question of debating the nature of our culture on some commonly agreed foundation. It is a time when we face the complete transformation of our culture into an anti-culture.   Perhaps one of the most confusing aspects of this present age is the sheer... Continue Reading
