The Least of These

“Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me” (Matthew 25:45). Jesus’ words here are sobering, for they come at the end of his description of how he will judge the nations when he returns. The problem with those who will be sent...

The Weight of Abortion

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.  For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.  I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my...
