A Defense of Biblical Christianity

"In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:12-17).

In defending homosexuality, Newsweek magazine has attempted to launch an intellectual attack on biblical Christianity at www.newsweek.com/id/172653. Thankfully, Albert Mohler has responded with a good analysis of the article, showing the inconsistencies and inadequacies of the attack, at www.albertmohler.com/blog_read.php?id=2881.

Thanks for posting this. It reminds me of why I do not read Newsleak.

Thanks for the comment, Mike! I was surprised by the intensity of the hatred expressed toward Christ and his followers. Usually, mainstream publications try to be a little more fair, even when they tilt toward a bias against biblically-based faith in Jesus.

Yes, the boldness of the anti-Christian crowd is becoming increasingly stronger. I think we are about to endure some of the persecution that we've only read about so far in our lives. But you know, if that's what it takes to get the fire going again, then so be it!

Christy,
I appreciate your attitude. I often read Christian leaders cautioning against affirming unpopular biblical teachings (such as the sinfulness of homosexuality), because it could be offensive. I don't want to be offensive, but Christ is more important than my popularity. Thanks for the comment!
