“The Case for Idolatry: Why Christians Can Worship Idols”The Gospel Coalition
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to worship idols. It’s not that my parents raised me that way, because they didn’t; I was brought up in a loving, secure, Christian home. But from childhood until today, my heart has been drawn to idolatry. In fact, if I’m honest, one of the defining features of my identity has been my desire to put something else—popularity, money, influence, sex, success—in place of God.”

“The Question at the Heart of the Sexual Revolution”Sean McDowell
“The sexual revolution is not chiefly about abortion, same-sex marriage, pornography, or the nature of gender. Debates about these issues reflect deeper worldview commitments. Rather, at the heart of the sexual revolution is a set of ideas about the order of reality and the nature of human beings.”

“The Jonas Brothers, ‘The Bachelor,’ and Our Culture’s Rejection of Sexual Purity”Christianity Today
“It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to see that the media—from the early Jonas days and onward—seems to have taken real issue with the notion of sexual purity. For Christians compelled by a biblical sexual ethic—that is, believers who strive for pure hearts, minds, and bodies but trust in God’s grace on the (many) occasions when things go wrong—there’s a lot to unpack here.”

“What Difference Would Jesus Make to Me?”Solas
“‘Even if the claims of Jesus were true, why should I care?’ In this episode of Short Answers, Andy Bannister sits down with special guest Jonny Somerville from the NUA film series to find out why we should care whether or not Christianity is true. NUA is a brilliant series of short films checking out the big questions of life, faith, and Jesus”

“When Do We Have Enough Evidence to Know Christianity is True?”Cold Case Christianity
“J. Warner Wallace, author of Cold-Case Christianity, was interviewed by Bobby Conway (The One Minute Apologist) and discussed the role of evidence in determining truth claims. When we can be certain we have sufficient evidence to believe something is true?”

“Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled”Back to Basics
“We see many troubling things in the world today. Perhaps you see them in your own home, among your family members, or in your own life. Jesus has a remedy for our troubled hearts.”
