Moral Matters

Godly Relationships - It's Up To Us To Teach Our Kids There's only one school that will teach your kids to live moral lives these days. As turbulent as the late 1960s were when my children were in school, I’m almost glad I don’t have to raise kids today. Yes, the sexual revolution, questioning authority, rolling around in the mud at Woodstock -- all the hallmarks of '60s culture -- were bad enough. But they were just the seeds of a sad harvest our culture is reaping right now. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that many of today’s political, academic, and media elites are products of the '60s and that  they are in the vanguard of the assault on traditional marriage, traditional morality, and the traditional family.

Is It Okay for Christians to Use Marijuana (Cannabis) and Other Drugs?

Is It Okay for Christians to Use Marijuana (Cannabis) and Other Drugs?

A number of young Christians these days seem to use marijuana and other recreational drugs. Some of them write to ask if this kind of behavior is okay for a Christian to engage in. If you are over 35 years old, you are probably thinking "that's a no-brainer." However, given the state of teaching in today's Christian churches, for many this question has never been answered adequately. This page answers the question from what the Bible says. Another page examines medical aspects of marijuana use. (See related articles on Godly Relationships) Read More

Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Introduction: While there isn’t one “Christian” lifestyle, there are certain pathways a Christian should aspire towards in life. God asks this of us for His own glory and our own good. In this section, we will first discuss topics of daily life, such as our personal relationships and civility, looking to the Bible as our guide. Then, we will turn to characteristics of negative lifestyles, such as racist beliefs and behavior, vulgarity and obscenity, and body and mind abuse (smoking, alcohol, and drugs). We hope God will speak to you about His plan for your life and how that corresponds to living a healthy lifestyle as the Bible describes. Read More

Darwin Popularized Racism

Darwin Popularized Racism

from Answers in Genesis "Although racism did not begin with Darwinism, Darwin did more than any person to popularize it." Discover the origin of people groups (there is only one race), the genetics of skin color, and biblical truths on "interracial" marriage. This fascinating book explores racism and its roots in the hearts and minds of millions. Most people do not realize how intimately connected the popular idea of evolution and the worst racist ideology in history are. Ken Ham and Dr. Charles Ware reveal the compelling history of the effect of an evolution-based belief system on the history of the United States, including slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, and abortion. They go beyond politically-correct speech to show the tragic global harvest of death and tragedy that stems from Darwin's controversial beliefs. Read More
