Hurting with Ferguson

Hurting with Ferguson It’s come to my attention that when people hear the term “ black lives matter,” there are two different responses.

In my Mind but not my Heart

I took my first apologetics class in 8th grade and the most powerful insight I have held onto ever since only took my teacher 5 seconds to say: no one believes in God because they lost an argument.

The Effects of Gender in the Media

Defenders of the media sometimes argue that while media portrayals are often sexist, their effects are benign. “That only happens on television,” they say. “People don’t really believe that stuff.” There is evidence, though, that contradicts their argument; many people do believe that stuff. The majority of research on media effects has focused on television largely b... »

  sexual Immorality I am writing this all from my prospective as a Christian.
