Is It Ever Justified to Kill in Self-Defense?

By Doug Enick In light of several high-profile shootings, we might benefit from considering what the Scriptures teach concerning the ethics of killing in self-defense.

“Same-Sex Marriage” Versus Judicial “Good Behavior”

By Edwin Vieira, Jr. “Same-sex marriage” may be an affront to common sense, an oxymoron, and even an ontological impossibility.

Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Common Core, and the Control of Education

God, Jesus, and the Constitution

Some skeptics today like to argue that the founding fathers purposefully left God out of the Constitution. They say that a “Godless Constitution” was the intended design of the document — and they’re wrong.
