Opinion: Misunderstandings about Down Syndrome influence Down Syndrome baby abortion

As I sat across from Liberty junior Josiah Frisbie, and then later David and Jennifer Nasser, I saw a passion on their faces that showed they shared a common experience despite their drastically different lives. They each loved a family member with Down Syndrome, and their heart for this people group was evident in every word they spoke.  Not every […]

“If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you” (John 15:19). How should Christians approach working in a secular environment? Having a strong relationship with the Lord will have ripple effects that impact earthly […]

Opinion: Despite only a few changes, USMCA may be more effective than NAFTA

The days of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are over — or are they? Officially, NAFTA has met its end, and a newly-signed trade agreement is waiting for ratification in the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

David and Joseph are two of my favorite biblical figures. Both men chased after God’s heart despite falling into seasons of sin and sadness. Christians can greatly benefit from combining the integrity of Joseph with the repentance of David in their own lives.  The story of David’s sin with Bathsheba is well known. But to understand the magnitude of God’s […]

Opinion: An overcrowded prison system costs taxpayers and fails to achieve its goal

After the gavel slams, the clinking of the handcuffs closing around a new prisoner’s wrists somehow sounds very final.  These sounds mark the last few moments of a person’s life outside of a prison until their time is served. The U.S. penal system sees prison as a punishment, but that punishment’s effectiveness is becoming null. The hope of the penal […]

 My Dad used to tell me that “context is king” when reading the Bible.  What he meant was that it is critical to understand the context that Scripture was written in before reading a passage and beginning to draw conclusions. Doing so will help avoid misinterpretation. In the Old Testament, it is understandable that certain people groups were enslaved due […]

Opinion: Brexit highlights the dangers of globalization

Wars have been fought for nations’ individual freedoms. Now, Brexit is Britain’s fight for its individual rights, similar to America’s fight for independence with muskets and thick parchment paper hundreds of years ago. Liberty students listened intently as the Honorable George Farmer introduced a new idea and concept to their morning Convocation. As Farmer talked about the issue of Brexit, […]
