David Murray unpacks the following: “Daniel 9:24-27 is apocalyptic literature that uses figurative language to predict the nature, timing and consequences of Christ’s work at His first coming.”
To see these hymns as encouraging violence requires a crude literalism rendered incoherent by the lyrics themselves. Christians are, the hymn reads, “marching as to war,” clearly a simile. When we sing “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us,” we don’t then discipline those who eat lamb chops for cannibalism.
Greg Forster reviews Miroslav Volf’s new book.
As I walked into the middle school auditorium for a recent school event, another mom asked how I was doing. I told her our family was grateful to be able to breathe again after finally finishing soccer season. “Our family never breathes,” she said, and proceeded to describe how travel soccer overlaps with travel lacrosse all year long. They were going to try squeezing basketball into their son’s schedule as well. She listed each responsibility in her family’s schedule like a badge of honor.
I was exhausted just listening.
Form becomes more important than substance. Again maybe this is just something going on in my own heart. But I’ve learned how to be a gospel-centered writer and to write in such a way that it can sound like I’m drinking deeply from the fountain of Christ without even taking a sip. What once flowed out of being enamored with Jesus now has simply become a default language. The parrot is fed and the heart slowly dies.

Ten years ago, the idea that children’s bathrooms should be gender-based was generally taken for granted. Now it is a bigoted and outdated principle. But how did this happen? Was there some great scientific breakthrough that proved traditional concepts of gender had been debunked? Was some observation made, codified by peer review, that showed without question gender is not, and cannot be, determined at birth? In fact, no such discovery based on anything even approaching the scientific method has ever found any such thing.
