(RNS) — It was a shameful thing for evangelical pastors to be celebrating the opening of the embassy in Jerusalem while the Israeli army was killing dozens of Palestinian protesters.
(RNS) — If I had to choose a Bible verse for a sermon I would give on Earth Day this year, it would be Psalm 24, verse 1: 'The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.' And I would encourage our taking an inventory of what is happening in 'the fullness thereof.'
(RNS) — Divorce is one of life’s tragedies. But it is not futile to lift up prayers of hope.

(RNS) It didn’t take long for some preachers tell us why God caused the horrible mass murder in Las Vegas to happen. The best response to such bad theology came from a bus driver I met several years ago in New Orleans, writes RNS columnist Richard Mouw.
(RNS) — The evangelicalism that nurtured me in my early years wasn’t — strictly speaking — 'apolitical.' Rather, the pattern was a political 'quietism. Support the basic patterns of the political status quo. Be good citizens. Be proud of what your country has traditionally stood for.
