Did God harden Pharaoh’s heart?

The short answer: Yes. The long answer: It depends on what you mean. If you’re asking whether God’s actions led to Pharaoh going from indifference to outright rejection of God, then yes, that is precisely what happened. If you’re asking whether God acted on Pharaoh’s heart and mind to prevent him from repenting, then no, […]

Jesus wept

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the story in John 11:1-44: Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that [Lazarus] was sick…He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” …Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that […]

Shhhh! Don’t say the “C” word!

Here’s the first story I’ve seen this season: For as long as anyone can remember, Christmas trees adorned with lights and ornaments have greeted holiday season visitors to UNC Chapel Hill’s two main libraries.

The white enemy

Is it racist to point out that someone else is racist? Are regular Americans racist if they are alarmed by the teachings of Black Liberation Theology? Would it be racist to be uncomfortable with the fact that Obama attended a church that teaches this herecy for more than 20 years? Apparently so, but it scares […]

No one has the right to determine the value of someone else’s life

Gianna Jesson is a survivor of abortion. Yes, her mother wanted to kill her. Some pro-choicers argue that if your mother doesn’t want you that your life will be miserable and not worth living (i.e., the potential for child abuse means that abortion is the “compassionate” choice). I wonder why Gianna is not leading a […]
