    I think historically speaking it refers to Old Testament laws, but in more modern usage, I hear it more in terms of what I said. But this is one of those terms that not everybody uses in the same...

    Put it this way, if there aren't any works, there is good reason to think there is no salvation (with obvious exceptions like the thief on the cross).

    In a perfect world, media coverage would not pre-determine who the frontrunners are going to be and each candidate could make their case. There seem to be two candidates who actually have good ideas...

    Russell Moore wrote an interesting op-ed about his refusal to see the movie. He said there were multiple reasons, but the main one he focused on was his disapproval of the anti-hero motif in movies....

    I've been a LeBron fan for all 16 years he's been in the league, but no longer. If I end up going to a Hornets game this year and it happens to be against the Lakers, I'm booing him.

    The only aspect of it that I know much of anything about is the music industry. There are two lines of thought about it from within; stay ghettoized, or try to break in with secular audiences. A few...

    Trump suggested red flagging Chris Cuomo a month or two ago as well, and this was discussed on here, so it's weird that you didn't bring this talking point up then. But I don't think this is a strong...

    Lincoln is an interesting case. A lot of libertarians put him among the worst because he suspended habeas corpus. I have seen multiple Christians from TWeb alone make the argument.
