The End of Marriage in Scandinavia

MARRIAGE IS SLOWLY DYING IN SCANDINAVIA. A majority of children in Sweden and Norway are born out of wedlock. Sixty percent of first-born children in Denmark have unmarried parents. Not coincidentally, these countries have had something close to full gay marriage for a decade or more. Same-sex marriage has locked in and reinforced an existing Scandinavian trend toward the separation of marriage and parenthood. The Nordic family pattern--including gay marriage--is spreading across Europe. And by looking closely at it we can answer the key empirical question underlying the gay marriage debate. Will same-sex marriage undermine the institution of marriage? It already has.

Theater's 'Passion' tickets start with 666

The Passion of the Christ" and the devil have been inextricably joined in this rural town in northwest Georgia. "The Passion" is showing at the Movies at Berry Square at Mount Berry Square Mall, and the machine that prints the tickets assigned the number 666, the biblical mark of the beast, as a prefix to all the tickets for the film.

Selections from the Apostle Paul (Crouch)’s letter to the Corinthians

by Jeff Carter
In September of 2003 a momentous discovery was made by two vagrants in southern California. This discovery has rocked the Christian community from coast to coast and around the world, and has shed new light on the writings of the Apostle Paul (Crouch).

Kerry’s Soviet Rhetoric

By Ion Mihai Pacepa

Part of Senator John Kerry's appeal to a certain segment of Americans is his Vietnam-veteran status coupled with his antiwar activism during that period. On April 12, 1971, Kerry told the U.S. Congress that American soldiers claimed to him that they had, "raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned on the power, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan."

Another Look at John 11

We are often told the raising of Lazarus from the dead is a story of Christ's compassion and humanity. Is that really the case? My recent study has caused me to see it in a much different light which I share here. I propose that what we really see is Christ's utter frustration with the inability of His audience to understand His message is spiritual, not physical.

Democrat Kerry Urges Caution on 'Passion'

Front-runner John Kerry arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday ready to debate his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination but unsure about the city's latest controversial production, "The Passion of the Christ." "I don't know," he said when asked if he would see the Mel Gibson film about the last days of Jesus' life and its particularly harrowing focus on his crucifixion.

'Fulfilled Grace'

by David Embury

How broad is the canvas of God's love, how far the strokes of His grace? To what lengths does it reach, and can it be put aside? In its various forms, what is becoming known as "The Gospel of Peace" "Universal Reconciliation" "The Gospel of Inclusion" "Comprehensive Grace" and what I shall refer to in this article as "Fulfilled Grace" views the panorama of God's Grace in Christ as boundless.

The Passion of The Christ Opens Huge

Mel Gibson is set to find out just how passionate Americans are about "The Passion of the Christ," his controversial new film which opens across the nation today, Ash Wednesday. Many of the 2,800 theaters showing the film report that today's showings are sold out and some theaters held early-morning screenings.

The Death of Death

"Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.” (1 Cor 15:54b-56 NRSV)

Einstein May Have Been Right After All

The good news from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is that Einstein was right — maybe. A strange form of energy called "dark energy" is looking a little more like the repulsive force that Einstein theorized in an attempt to balance the universe against its own gravity. Even if Einstein turns out to be wrong, the universe's dark energy probably won't destroy the universe any sooner than about 30 billion years from now, say Hubble researchers.
