"This person writes I've often been asked to pray for elderly folks to beat this or that ailment or disease I'm always surprised that Christians are not more comfortable with their death or the death of Christians around them in my heart. I always pray THY will be done but I feel the person requesting the prayer is really not thinking this way. How should I pray? How can I encourage acceptance versus constant and even at times obsessive medical intervention? Yeah. It's such a great question I don't know if there's a a one-size-fits-all for every situation. Here's what we know about prayer. And I think that's where we've got to start. What do we know to be true about prayer and that is is that prayer connects us with a real person not with force if it connected us with a force that you know that it would be that was impersonal then it would be much more fatalistic right in other words. The best thing we could do was maybe try to change the programming so that we get a better result, but that's about it. It's OBI Wan, Luke used the forest and I think some of us kind of see prayer that way. Here's the other thing if we are in the middle of a whole lot of pain and suffering, we tend to basically ask God. To help us and he wants us to this is not a bad thing. In other words he says the effectual fervent prayer for righteous man makes a big difference. We see Abraham appealing. To God and such as seems that God's mind not as ultimate purpose in history he's GonNa. Go she hitting with him. You know patiently allowing Abraham to talk him down. Yeah. You know I'm grateful for a friend, a mutual friend of Mike Adams and I by the way Michael Baumann who also passed away this past year Hillsdale professor and he gave this analogy once and I thought it was great. It was you know we we have this tendency to either thank look we're either in a a world were that God's not really in control of and he kinda drops blessings in if we ask him or were like puppets on a string, he's a Marionette puppeteer. Any says. The Biblical picture is not that we're on a string it's that God is the director of a play. and. He's really really good at it. In fact, he's so good at it that all the actors are allowed to ad-lib, but the place still comes out exactly like God wants now I can't give me the verse for that but it just made a Lotta sense like that does seem to be. You know what we know to be true about prayer. I will say that just in the last little bit, we've done a number of breakpoint commentaries and other things about the idea of death and I would point people to that, and if particular will link to this, the show notes to Ben Mitchell who's just honored by the way with the Southern Baptist Convention.

A New Declaration of Dependence On God

"This, fourth of July we find our nation more divided than perhaps at any other time since the civil war. That's what happens when a nation abandoned God and Rejects Truth Colson Center I'm John Stonestreet. This break point. On July Fourth, two thousand and four Chuck Colson breakpoint commentary was entitled a New Declaration of dependence reading through it again recently I was struck by just how prophetic his words were as a student of history chuck not only understood the founding principles of our nation, as expressed in the declaration of independence, but he understood on what those principles were grounded. So what happens chuck ass when the foundations are rejected? What happens when religion? Truth and public virtue are all made non essential. What happens when citizens want the benefits of the American experiment without taking seriously what it requires of us will here's Jet Colson from July second, two thousand four. Fourth Celebrates our liberty and national independence. I get through every time I hear. The cannons blast that rousing finale of the eighteen twelve overture, and I got a lump in my throat whenever I join in singing America America. God shed His grace on the. Indeed God has blessed America this nation dedicated to the proposition that all men are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights has endured two hundred twenty eight years. America's the oldest constitutional republic on Earth. But all is not well in our land. When Thomas Jefferson Penn, the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence, he deliberately appealed the creator, or he acknowledged an overriding obligation to nature and nature's got, and he understood that ordered. Liberty is not just a subjective preference, but a divinely ordained condition for which human beings are designed. But. Over the last few decades, legions of skeptics have mounted a massive assault on these self evident Ruth's in prestigious schools in the halls of government, and especially in the Supreme Court. God is banished from public compensation. If a public schoolteacher introduce Jefferson's ideas and language into the classroom today, she likely be called on the carpet, possibly disciplined. This assault on God in public cultures severely damages our democracy. If God is thrown out of our history, we lose our basis for believing that individuals have rights and dignity in an empty universe. We have no meaning no value without God. There are no inalienable rights and no certain proof that liberty is better than tyranny or that life better than death. Everything's a matter of opinion and power. The references to God, the Declaration of Independence provide a foundation for moral argument within civil society and moral truths pervade our founding documents from beginning to end without God is the source of all these moral principles. The Public Square would quickly revert to the law of the jungle. Brutish power would prevail the week. The unborn, the elderly, the gravely ill could be quietly terminated. Much as I enjoy the anthems and fireworks more than that is called for on this July fourth. We need to confess our moral failures in our national sins, repenting of allies of. Killing innocent babies and the elderly. Renewal begins on our knees. It's there. We hear soul searching questions from God himself asking how long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked rescue the weekend needy deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Our nation's founding document declared independence from Britain. But with equal fervor declared dependence upon God expressing firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence. The signers committed the American experiment. Do their maker the spirit of seventeen seventy six was reverence and trust. So as we mark this solemn occasion, let us seek a rebirth of true liberty, which is possible, only when governed by divine law for without God, we could never have liberty and justice for

How Dare the Vice President Pray?

"Enunciates has a long history of its leaders asking for the help of divine. Providence shouldn't be controversial when they do for the call center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break. One they argued yesterday on break point. Spread of the corona virus is a brutal reminder of just how fragile humans are a direct and uncomfortable challenge to our collective illusion of control as it spreads not only our individual lives threatened but also the intricate and fragile web of global connections that fuel national and international economies to ask help. And all of this shouldn't be controversial. So that's exactly what Vice President. Mike Pence decided to do an official White House photo from February the twenty six captured the vice president and the Corona virus taskforce opening their meeting with heads bowed in prayer. The photo as they say nowadays blew up the Internet unleashing a tidal wave of prayer shaming. Which is a term coined a couple years back to describe ridiculing people who dare offer thoughts and prayers for victims of tragedies like mass shootings one secular research website described the photo symbolic of the moral and intellectual decay at the White House. A photo shows Vice President Mike Pence and his team trying to pray away. The Corona Virus Pinson. His team were quote wallowing ignorance superstition and willful ignorance. The site continued suggesting that pence praise. Because he's a religious extremist another slant this one from an out and proud atheists is not a joke when people say those. Republicans are trying to stop a virus with prayer. What did anyone expect? Science reason something sensible and one of the most viral tweets of the photo had this caption. Mike Pence is corona virus. Emergency team praying for a solution. We are so blank. Never mind that. Every session of Congress begins with prayer as do thousands of public meetings across the country. Each day prayer is for many today. Politically unacceptable seen as an affront to science obstacle to govern it and worst of all a shameful admission that were not in control of our own destinies. Of course. That's precisely the point of prayer. We're not in control. We think we are. We've made remarkable medical scientific and technological breakthroughs that have allowed us to be less the victims of nature than societies past. But we don't control the world. The idea that we do. Ironically reveals a central belief of a technocratic worldview one every bit as much an article of faith any held by prayers this faith allies in something quite unprovable intentive namely that all human problems and challenges whether climate change or gun violence. The Corona virus are problems that can be solved. If only we apply the right techniques which these days are almost always political. You know passing the right laws or public. Policies are electing the right officials in this world view the world and all of its complexities are reduced a mathematical models and can thus be controlled by our best ideas and efforts oliver problems. The logic continues can be if not eliminated at least ameliorated in fact. This worldview central article of faith explains why those committed to it. Think of prayer in science as mutually exclusive options something that directly contradicts the history of both science. And many of history's most important. Scientists this secular faith along with the political illusion that it fosters is on full display right now by those claiming that this outbreak is something. President trump or some government entity should be able to save us from such an inflated idea of government not only reduces the room for God in our cultural imagination it dramatically expands the room for the state and our cultural imagination. And that's something. We'll surely regret in the end. Placing the world on our own shoulders in this way will not grant any more control instead will only find its way too heavy and then where will we turn as the PSALMIST said nations may rage? People may plot in vain but only the Lord makes us dwell in safety. Thank God when our leaders recognize this? May We all join them. And praying for the Corona virus taskforce and for those political leaders and health officials around the world for God ordained wisdom to fight this potential pandemic

The Dangerous Science Behind Gender Transitioning

"The reason scientific studies touting the benefits of medical transitioning for those with gender dysphoric or joining the long history of so-called science from call center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break point from the beginning. Proponents of the sexual revolution have wrapped themselves in the mantle of science especially social science for example in the nineteen fifties. The Kinsey reports helped normalize a whole range of sexual behaviors. They were the source of that still often quoted statistic that ten percent of people or same sex oriented both that figure and the methodology behind. Kinsey. So-called research has long ago been discredited. Still that ten percent number two sticks in some people's heads a new wave of studies in recent years paint a rosy picture about the benefits of medical transitions for people with gender dysphoric. You so much. So that is Paul. Dirks recently said public discourse lifelong experimental medicalisation sterilization and complete removal of healthy body parts. No longer a rarity. It's now the recommended treatment for gender is for you. But what if those studies are like the Kinsey reports? What if they reflect the bias and of the authors rather than reality will given? What's at stake? This is vitally important question. Especially since -ocial science itself is in the midst of what's called a replication crisis in other words when researchers tried to replicate the findings of studies in the Social Sciences. They often cannot this failure replication. Even includes studies regarded as canonical in some fields. So how can we distinguish between what solid research? And what won't withstand further scrutiny. When it comes the so called settled science of Gender Transitioning Paul Dirks public discourse article titled Transition As treatment. The best study showed the worst outcomes sums up. The results of his deep dive into this research dirks defines best studies as those that have followed people who underwent medical transition for the longest period of time. It's well recognized in the literature. Dirk states that the year after medical gender transition is a quote honeymoon period which does not represent a realistic picture of long-term sexual and psychological status yet most of the popular ginger transition studies are limited to just a few years following the transitioning other studies that support medical transition failed to follow up with as many as half the original participants. That's well beyond the threshold of reliability. Many of the studies dirk states are fraught with design problems like small sample sizes short study links enormously high dropout rates to name just three the problem so bad one systematic review of the literature rate and only two out of twenty nine studies as high quality and contrast the best designed and most rigorous studies. Whose results are most likely to stand up over. Time found. That medical transition was not the solution to the patient's problems especially in the case of male to female transitions. They reveal much higher. Mortality rates do increased rates of suicide AIDS. Drug abuse even cardiovascular disease another high quality study found a sevenfold increase in suicide attempts and a nineteen fold increase in completed suicides after transitions even when the findings are adjusted for pre existing psychiatric problems which are often treated as unrelated to the gender DIS Fauria. They're still a three fold. Increase in psychiatric hospital admissions in other words when it comes to medical gender transitioning the best studies show the worst outcomes and the current use of shoddy social science to support medical transitioning. That's not only misleading. It's dangerous in this case. As is common in the social sciences especially throughout the history of the sexual revolution ideology is overwhelming truth. Finding too many researchers think they know what the data should tell us and so they at times unconsciously and times consciously designed their studies to make sure that it does sadly the consequences of their failure is far worse than professional embarrassment or tarnished reputations this case the consequences could be permanent and

Good Times for Planned Parenthood, So It Says

"America's largest purveyor of abortion claims. It had a banner year if that's the case why our tax dollars still flowing planned parenthood the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is breakpoint. Few weeks ago planned. Parenthood released an upbeat even triumphant sounding annual report for the two thousand eighteen nineteen fiscal fiscal year. Despite the increase legal and political challenges they face the organization claims to have met those challenges with resolve this kind of spin and his pretty standard fare for annual report. So it should be taken with a large grain of salt. Still prompts and obvious question if planned parenthood's going from strength to strength as it says that is why does it still need our tax payer support. According to the report planned parenthood performed a record three hundred and forty five thousand abortions during the two thousand eighteen nineteen fiscal year. That's approximately forty percent of the approximately eight hundred sixty two thousand abortions performed in the United States in other words the planned parenthood performed a record number of abortions at a time when the overall number of abortions is declining put differently. We might say that planned planned. Parenthood is cornering the abortion market. The report sounds upbeat because business is good in fact it so good that planned. Parenthood could turn down millions of dollars and federal grants rather than comply with new trump administration rules that bar recipients from referring clients to abortion providers with that kind of financial flexibility. Why are American taxpayers still forced to fund the organization to the tune of six hundred seventeen million dollars a year? More to the point. Why was the most recent funding being approved without the slightest consideration? That things could even be different at least part of the answer to those questions. Lie in the pages of the annual report planned. Parenthood claims that it provided nine point eight million services in the last fiscal year. Half of those were what it called Sti Services and treatment the rest birth control information services and breast exams and PAP test. Now this is of course planned parenthood's continual instill bogus that abortions less than four percent of what the organization does on several occasions. Why that number just isn't true? Apparently there's enough elected officials congressional Republicans included that either belief planned parenthood. Don't care enough to learn. The facts. Were just unwilling to risk their political careers to do anything about it. And so the on the spending bill passed and signed into law late last year directed directed five hundred and fifty million dollars in federal funding for planned parenthood in this fiscal year. That's an increase of twenty million over last fiscal year. Her that of course means the impact of the millions of dollars in grants at planned. Parenthood turned down was limited rather than comply with the new rules or employ their famously justly creative accounting. They instead chose to fight the rules in court. They recently lost that fight. And then I circuit the continued federal funding of planned. Parenthood matters for reasons that that transcend just the symbolic or the moral. Nearly forty percent of planned parenthood's revenue that six hundred seventeen million dollars in the last fiscal year comes from government sources. Nearly ninety percent of that amount comes from the federal government alone which means planned parenthood's quite vulnerable despite the upbeat annual report if that Federal Spigot of funds were just turned off or even just turned down. He'd be in big trouble in fact we should be asking why it hasn't been already. We can't blame what's happened or more accurately what hasn't happened just on those in the courts and legislatures without also pointing to what's happened or more accurately what hasn't happened in the Public Square. See legislatures were only de-fund abortion providers like planned parenthood. If Americans make it clear lear. They view abortion something that they absolutely will not pay for and that will only happen if we can continue and compellingly make the case for for life. If we fail to do that then we can only expect more upbeat annual reports from planned parenthood. Which is America's unquestioned leader of abortion

Americans Are Dying Younger

"Inching Christians had a reputation for running toward the plague. Not Away from it today. There's a new plague. That demands are responsible for the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break. Point between nineteen fifty nine and two thousand sixteen life expectancy in the US rose from sixty nine point. Nine years to seventy eight point nine years. Most people know that. But did you know that since then it's reverse course. A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Paints a portrait of a society in deep trouble for the third year in a row now the average life expectancy in the. US has declined the last time. American life expectancy CONSI declined three years in a row war one and the Spanish flu pandemic killed six hundred. Seventy five thousand Americans. Now percentage wise that would be the same as losing two and a half million Americans today of course in the early nineteen hundreds there were no antibiotics viruses. Were unknown. Never mind antiviral all drugs. The germ theory of disease only recently been widely accepted in the US in the kind of public health and sanitation measures that we now take for granted. We're we're still in their infancy and today the. US spends a far larger share of its GDP on health care than any other nation yet. Other wealthy nations are not experiencing the same reversal in life expectancy in fact people in some less wealthy nations like Costa Rica have significantly longer life expectancies expectancies than Americans. So whatever is causing Americans to die younger and younger has nothing at all to do with medical science or technology as a recent Washington. Post article describes the causes behind. This dramatic shift. Are things like suicide. Drug overdoses liver disease and dozens of other causes. These causes are summed. Up in a phrase deaths from despair that was coined by researchers and case and Angus Deaton and other words we are facing an epidemic Amac of young people giving up on life sometimes before it ever really even starts for them as a public health expert told the Post people are feeling worse about themselves and in their futures at leading them to do things that are self destructive and not promoting health was the study shows. They're giving up a younger and younger age. The same hopelessness US leading to the uptick and deaths from despair is also driving what I call acts of desperation that we also see in our culture in this category add put acts of mass violence or abuse in the increasing number of young people willing to self mutilate in a pursuit for their identity. This sad story brings to mind Matthew Nine thirty six when Jesus saw the crowds. He had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. The Greek word that it is here translated compassion describes visceral reaction not a mere sentiment. In other words it's like Jesus felt this one in the gut. His response to their plight was to tell his disciples pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers in to his harvest starting with themselves. Our current opinion of dying young should elicit a similar response from us as Chuck. Wholesome like to say it's time for the church to be the church like our Lord? We must see the harassed Aston Helpless around us. We must feel they're suffering as if it were our own and we must pray that God would show us how he'd have US respond. If as Paul told the Athenians got his determine the time and place where we live we cannot be spectators in this cultural moment to the unfolding tragedies around us God God has placed us here to act A. This doesn't mean we'll solve the problem anymore than those who ran toward the plague in ancient Rome could stop it. The restoration of all things will only be complete when Christ returns and glory but we can offer a preview of that restoration. Here now. That's what we and only only we have to offer the world if we can't bring ourselves to do this and something else is terribly wrong. This time with us

They faced down the tanks in Tiananmen Square. Now they want their children to forget it

"Thirty years ago. The Chinese government brutally crushed protests in Beijing's Tiananmen Square thirty years later, many have forgotten the deadly truth about communism for the Colson center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break point for two months in one thousand nine hundred nine students gathered in TNN square demanding political reforms, analogous to the economic reforms instituted by then chairman, dang Xiaoping after some initial indecision, the communist party decided to crack down on may twentieth. The government declared martial law. Moved two hundred and fifty thousand troops into Beijing on June. Third state run television warned Beijing residents to stay inside the next day, the army advanced towards Tiananmen Square protesters attempted to impede the army's advance and destroyed more than one hundred military vehicles and damaged nearly five hundred others, but ultimately resistance would prove to be futile, trucks, and armored personnel carriers. Join tanks and attack helicopters. The army's principal target was a ten meter tall statue dubbed. The god. Of democracy, which was erected by the students and bore a more than passing resemblance to the statue of liberty after first firing warning shots. The troops fired directly on the protesters estimates of the death toll range widely from hundreds to thousands and addition at least sixteen hundred people were arrested many imprisoned for more than two decades and others who were never seen again. The message from the communist party was clear to be rich might be as den once put it glorious, but forget about being free the events of June one thousand nine hundred nine make clear that the communist party was determined to retain, complete political, and social control will given this history with this regime. No one should be surprised at the recent crackdown on Chinese Christians and Muslims leaguers. But what is surprising is how many Chinese today are untroubled by the events of June hundred eighty nine even worse, the authors of a recent article in the Washington Post described a popular nostalgia for? Maza Dong mouse rule was among the most brutal in all of history. This is the Mao whose attempt to industrialize and collectivize China virtually overnight called the great leap forward killed at least forty five million people. This is the Mao who's great proletarian cultural revolution. Attempted to purge Chinese society of capitalism, traditional elements by killing between five hundred thousand and three million people and selling countless more into internal exile. Among its victims were the father and aunt of current leaders using thing who committed suicide as a result of being persecuted, the tragic irony is that any doubt from ou- only helps legitimize the authoritarianism and oppression. Now, expanding under g how can we make sense of this, selective and misguided historical memory will most of the nostalgic are too young to have personally, experienced mouse rule even more, they haven't been taught the truth about our TNN men and approved or state run schools. Of course that same thing. Can't be said a bus in the west who's a memory is often just as selective and just as wrong when it comes to communism writer, Cathy young who lived in the USSR until she was seventeen describes what she calls Kami chic now. She's not referring to Soviet apologised or sympathizers prior to nineteen Ninety-one. She's talking about the two thousand eighteen teen vogue article that urged readers to use. Karl Marx's ideas to understand how Donald Trump was elected president. She's referring to a two thousand seventeen New York Times op Ed insisting that women had better sex in communist east, Germany, or one, hard left publication that recently tweeted for all the Soviet Union's many faults by traversing. It's vast architectural landscape. We get a glimpse of what a built environment for the many not the few could look like. Now, if all we knew about communism where it's histories of oppression and mass murderer that should be enough to disavow us of any nostalgia for it as the authors of the black book of communism wrote communist regimes turned mass. Crime into a full blown system of government. The result was one hundred million plus debts including the martyrs of Tiananmen Square. But that tweet itself about building environments, for the many, not the few tells us all we need to know about the flawed worldview that undergirds this great historical evil to a communist, but society is always more important than the individual individuals must be sacrificed for the utopian and fantastical greater good that lies somewhere in the future, and always just beyond reach whenever it's tried in the past or in the future. This fatal flaw will leave fatalities because bad ideas have victims, the history of communism. Like it's worldview is neither glorious nor worthy of nostalgia

"Of inspirational sayings designed to affirm us. It is God's grand story of all the universe ever was is, and Shelby the story that focuses on God's revelation of himself in Jesus Christ and his work in history, that truth should define how we approached the bible. Here's John Stonestreet while we're gonna talk about how not three. I don't know if you're a quote guy like me if you're a quote guy like me, I, I'll give you one of my favorites. It's from AWS dozer awro said this, what comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us? What comes into our mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us. Philosophers talk about the difference between controlling beliefs and essentially add on beliefs. I have a lot of beliefs and my mind if you weeks ago, I had this belief that Duke would win the national championship and what happened was reality, which is they don't play defense ran into that belief. And so therefore it kind of all came apart. Now I did have that belief. I held that belief strongly. I held that believe strongly for a couple of weeks in particular, like I do most years because March madness is the most wonderful time of the year, but it was not a belief that controlled by life except for maybe a month for a couple of weekends during the month of March. There are other beliefs so that we have that are controlling beliefs. These are core beliefs. These are believes that when you what you believe about these shape, what you believe about everything else toes her says, and he's right that God is one of those beliefs. He says, what comes into your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you? I wanna give you my second favorite quote from Toews her because this first quotas. Applicable across the board to anyone. The second. The second quote is more specifically, I think applicable to people who claim to know God and to trust God into obey God into believe God. He said this, the essence of idolatry is entertaining thoughts about God that are unworthy of him. The essence of idolatry is entertaining thoughts about God that are unworthy of him. You remember the story told in scripture of the Israelites coming out of Egypt, going to Mount Sinai, receiving the ten commandments and and of course Moses is going up the mountain and he's gone for long periods of time. And when he's gone for long periods of time, sometimes he comes back down because he's receiving the law from God. And when he comes back down, he's been with God's. So his face is glowing and Israel's fault that was weird. So what they did is they like this guy brought us out of Egypt, he'd leaves us for a long time and then he comes back glowing. We don't know what to do with him. So they go to Aaron and they say, make us a God. Now, we often talk about that story of the golden calf as if it were a different God. What's interesting honestly ever notice detail in that story that the golden calf was an idol, not just because it was gold, not just because it was an image not just because it was a calf. It was an idol not of a different God. When the Israelites came to Aaron. And asked him to make them the God, they didn't say, make us the God of the sea or make us the God of the air. They said, make us the God that brought us out of Egypt. It's an interesting sort of detail basically that they were trying to get at the God that actually did bring them out of Egypt. The problem wasn't that they were worshiping a different God, but that the conception of the God that they were worshiping was wrong..

"Breakpoint from the colson center for christian worldview here's john stonestreet with breakpoint twenty years ago social conservatives were crusading against pornography and sexual objectification they would would've cheered if the nation's largest beauty pageant and eliminated its bikini competition or recently miss america chair gretchen carlson announced that her pageant is scrapping its when suit segment now she says they'll be judged holy on who they are not how they look now of course since its beginning the hashtag need to awareness campaign has elicited some strange reversal some liberals have abandoned the idea that showing skin equals empowerment after decades of fighting to normalize skimpy attire in the name of women's liberation there's been a shocking realization that it was mostly men not women who liked to see ladies onstage in little more than their underwear and in another bizarre reversal a writer at the national review lamented the end of miss america's bikini contests saying and i quote i like looking at really beautiful women including when they wear bikinis look if i said that my wife would punch me in the nose of course men like looking at women in bikinis there's no question there but that doesn't make it right and they're not too recent memory a conservative man would have been a shame to say something like that perhaps thinking of jesus words that anyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart and another article over at the stream the decision by the miss america pageant to allow contestants to keep their clothes on was compared with islamic tyranny and burqas and a strange theological twist the end of the pageant's bikini era was called quote an attack on creation itself by modern nas because watching these ladies and a state of undress on national television is quote part of our god given nature's yes those are quotes for the record i can't imagine that the miss america pageant will survive this new incarnation essentially a woman's talent show and i don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with tasteful celebrations of female beauty that honestly it's dumb founding to see conservatives defending a contest that requires dozens of women to parade around nearly in front of millions of viewers i've long appreciated both the national review and the stream but these takes are terrible they remind me of that bizarre and misguided tribute to hugh hefner in the federalist last year in which the founder of playboy was praised for celebrating again i'm quoting the sexual complementarity that has bound men and women together since the dawn of time too often as my colleague shane morris wrote over at pathos recently conservative positions seem these days to be determined by whatever is opposite to the left now typically that's not a bad place to be but these recent defenses of the risque like skimpy swimsuits in the objectification of women that's not where we want to be mere opposition cannot adequately grounded christian worldview often will need to stand for something besides just what the other side is against and the only way to know is if our worldview is built on something more stable than the changing visions of political leanings as i said from the beginning christian should not dismiss the current backlash against sexual abuse we should welcome in the problem of men taking advantage of women as recent events have made clear exist on both sides of the church doors now we certainly cannot agree with everything the leaders of the hashtag metoo movement believe but if we can't stand against judging mostly naked women on their appearance do we really stand for anything at all and before we leave you today let me remind you that the colson center fiscal year end is coming up quickly to donate please visit breakpoint dot org or call eight seven seven three two two five five to seven.

"Here's john stonestreet with breakpoint it takes courage to be a christian in iraq more courage than i or i bet most of us can even imagine some of the courage we see from our brothers and sisters over there comes from the church's deep roots in that region tradition holds that the gospel was first preached in what is now iraq by fatty who was either the apostle of the same name or one of jesus seventy other disciples mentioned in luke chapter ten and so by the end of the first century when most of our ancestors were still worshiping trees the aramaic speaking people of what is now northern iraq worshiped the triune god their faith has survived for generations including through the coming of islam the mongo hordes but it might not survive american faithlessness last october vice president pence announced that from this day forward america will provide support directly persecuted communities through the united states agency for international development instead of the ineffective relief efforts at the united nations not the time it was a welcome announcement has because little with any of the one point four billion dollars in us humanitarian aid distributed by the un actually reached iraqi christians when fortunately is former reagan national security adviser robert and farland and representative chris smith recently wrote in the wall street journal seven months later those communities still haven't received the promise support from usa id in fact last month to requests for support from the niniveh reconstruction committee and the catholic university in her bill were rejected without explanation in their article mcfarland and smith ask where is the direct aid that mr pins promised they warned that the light of iraqi christianity could be permanently extinguished if the us doesn't keep faith with iraqi christians and that same day and even blunter assessment was published at national review benedict kiely.

"God's family we use the phrase children of god so often it's lost much of its power mystery but packer writes that christians are children of god in a unique way packer calls the concept of adoption the highest privilege of salvation better even than being forgiven of sinn you see the bible teaches that human beings are by nature outside of god's family born as what the new testament cause children of wrath we have no claim to the mercies of god and yet he chooses to adopt us to welcome us into his household we have the privilege and the right alongside his son jesus christ to inherit all good things and adoption rights packer gone takes us into his family and fellowship he establishes as his children and airs closeness affection and generosity are at the heart of the relationship to be right with god the judges a great thing but to be loved and cared for by god the father is greater and romans aid the apostle paul beautifully rights that those who are led by the spirit of god our children of god having received the spirit of adoption as sons by whom we cry arbor father now what all this means is that christian parents like miranda daniel peri aren't just doing a good thing by adopting they're acting out the gospel itself bringing children who may be outside the household of faith into the warmth of god's family is through adoption that little ones like lydia not only experience what it is to have an earthly mom and dad but also to have an early picture of what it means to have a heavenly father again come to breakpointor click on this commentary and will link you to this incredible video and please share it widely for breakpoint i'm john stonestreet.

"To discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation gender identity marital status or socioeconomic status including in social activities which would include church membership and worship activities at the heart of this challenge to religious freedom is what anderson calls the never ending expansion of anti discrimination statutes what started out as well justified efforts to combat racism sexism and anti semitism have morphed into laws protecting against the harm to dignity alleged italy inflicted by anyone who disagrees with progressives about human sexuality this alleged harm to dignity is the rationale behind colorado's attempt to punish jack phillips whose offence was that he was unwilling to completely affirmed the current sexual orthodoxy a refusal that somehow diminished some one this is of course silly and underscores anderson's argument that ultimately our goal should be to convince our neighbours that what we believe about sex is true and in the meantime we need to convince them that what we believe is at least reasonable and poses no harm to others and part of that convincing include standing up for every once religious liberty not just our own provided they don't harm the common good violate human rights or otherwise offend justice anderson rights muslims should be free to be authentically muslim just as jews should be free to be authentically jewish and christian should be free to be authentically christian now a lot is at stake in this phillips case but the battle for religious freedom is limited to the courts it's also being waged this chuckle i'm like to say over the backyard fence and in the public square while have much more to say about the case of jack phillips in the meantime please come to breakpoint dot or click on this commentary for a link to ryan anderson is excellent article and please be sure to share it with folks you know for breakpoint i'm john stonestreet.
