"A father has been banned from a Charles County, Maryland school after a dispute over his daughter's World History class homework assignment. Kevin Wood told FOX5 he was banned from La Plata High School after he objected to a three-page assignment asking students to examine Islam. Wood, a veteran, told FOX5 he and his wife believe religion should not be taught in schools, and Islam should not get priority over other religions."

"So how are theologies condemned well over 1500 years ago finding a resurgence in contemporary Evangelicalism? The Christianity Today article suggests a failure in adult Christian education as one cause. Let me suggest another: these heresies are finding a resurgence because too many Protestants misunderstand the Reformation doctrine of sola scriptura. Too many Christians mistake 'Scripture alone' as if it were a license for them to read the Bible alone—to read it apart from other people. You know the idea: 'All I need is me and my Bible.' But that’s not what it means. It means that Scripture is alone authoritative, not that your personal ('alone') interpretation of Scripture is authoritative."

"As I’ve taught my kids to talk about disability and difference, I’ve found myself learning even more. I’ve been able to claim my own abilities and gifts and admit my own vulnerabilities and needs. And I’ve started to see everyone around me in terms of what we hold in common instead of what divides us. I have my daughter to thank."

"The adjustment is basic: to cast a limit on sexual activity as a plus, not a minus. It persuades youths that stopping short of going to bed is not restriction, denial, prohibition, a Big No. Rather, it is preservation, affirmation, obedience, a Humble Yes."

"Craig Blomberg, professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary, has devoted much of his scholarly life to assuring evangelical students raised in fundamentalist homes that the authority—and inerrancy—of the Bible does not depend on its living up to logical positivist standards that would have meant nothing to Moses, David, Luke, or Paul. In Can We Still Believe the Bible?: An Evangelical Engagement with Contemporary Questions, he does his fellow evangelicals a vital service by identifying and discussing six areas where critics like Ehrman have sown deep seeds of doubt in the minds of believers and seekers as to the reliability of the Bible."

"Many Millennial Evangelicals are searching for something beyond the proclaimed 'outdated,' 'old-fashioned' and 'fundamental' faith of our parents. Lured by an increasingly secular society and blinded by a self-serving human nature, Millennial Evangelicals are not stopping long enough to uncover what makes our grandpa’s religion great."

"The lesson for all of us in this is quite simple: When asked about a contentious social issue that’s loaded with potential to anger, divide, and invite persecution, “Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil” (Matthew 5:37)."
