    Who Exactly Are 'Radical Muslims'?

    The Trump administration has been using the phrase “radical Islam” when discussing the “war on terror.” From his inauguration address to remarks to military leaders, President Trump has been warning against “Islamic terrorists.” Many different kinds of individuals and movements get collapsed into this category of radical Islam. A common one that is increasingly being used by politicians and journalists both in Europe and the U.S. to equate with “radical Islam” is the Salafist tradition.

    Fake News 'Nothing New, Was Going On In Bible,' Says Franklin Graham

    Although evangelist and Samaritan's Purse president Franklin Graham agrees the United States needs "a free press," he said he believes we "also need an honest press." However, given current tumultuous cultural concerns, ensuring the same definition is being applied to the term "free press" is warranted.

    Angelina Jolie: Refugee Policy Should Be Based on 'Facts, Not Fear'

    American filmmaker, actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, who also serves as a special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, stated in an opinion-editorial in the New York Times Thursday it is simply not true that U.S. borders are overrun, or that refugees are admitted to the United States without close scrutiny.

    'Refugees Are Already Vigorously Vetted' Says Former Homeland Security Immigration Officer

    "The only explanation for this [immigration/travel ban] order is that refugees are being used by the president to appeal to his base at the expense of U.S. security," stated Natasha Hall, a former immigration officer with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in an opinion piece published Tuesday in The Washington Post. "Such a move is not only despicable and devastating to the people who desperately crave the safety of our country -- it erodes the American legal system by turning it into a political tool."

    When Christians Disagree: Disagreement & the Gospel

    Since the beginning of Christendom, Christians have disagreed. They’ve disagreed about doctrines and politics, social and personal questions, and the list could go on. Our day is no different. Much like iconoclasts defacing artwork in the 1500s, in our disagreements waged on the social feeds of Facebook and Twitter today, we Christians continue to wrestle with the importance of disagreeing well with one another. The following faculty conversation weighs in on this question of disagreement and provides thoughtful insight into the nature of disagreement as part of the Christian life.

    Executives of National Evangelical Bodies Pen Letter to Trump On Executive Order On Refugees

    As evangelical Christians, we are guided by the Bible to be particularly concerned for the plight of refugees, individuals who have been forced to flee their countries because of the threat of persecution. Evangelical churches and ministries have long played a key role in welcoming, resettling, and assisting in the integration of refugees from various parts of the world. As such, we are troubled by the recent executive order temporarily halting refugee resettlement and dramatically reducing the number of refugees who could be considered for resettlement to the U.S.
  • Inauguration Day Preparation: Reasons to Pray and Praise

    As people are preparing for Inauguration Day---some with rejoicing, others in seeming sackcloth and ashes---one fact becomes clear: amid all of the performance rejections and media criticism abounding, this is a controversial and exciting time, to be sure. And perhaps that's an understatement. To the Christian, however, there is never a time devoid of comfort. For those whose eyes are fixed pessimistically, I hope to avert your focus just a bit more.
  • Death Penalty

    Should Christians Support the Death Penalty?

    Death penalty measures were considered on three different state ballots on Election Day, which has sparked a healthy capital punishment debate among Christians, but where should Christians stand on the death penalty? Some capital punishment proponents justify their stance by suggesting that not only is it good governance but it's also sanctioned by God. This is a bold claim. Those who support the death penalty often cite a few Biblical verses, but do they really translate into a divine death penalty mandate?
