brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercies, I encourage
you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and
pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service. Don’t
be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by
the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s
will is — what is good and pleasing and mature.”
Romans 12:1-2 (CEB)
“A holy life
is not an ascetic, or gloomy or solitary life, but a life
regulated by divine truth and faithful in Christian duty. It is
living above the world while we are still in it.”
NOT WORRY OVER 'MINORITY' STATUS
church in the West doesn’t hold the authority that it once
did but the church has historically done just as well when it was
in a position of weakness, says Richard Tiplady.
principal of International Christian College in Glasgow, had some
assuring words for the church as he delivered the final address at
the recent Keswick Convention.
status has been the “norm” for Christians throughout
history and remains the case today, he argued. “It certainly
was for Paul and the Christians in the first few centuries –
and it didn’t stop the church exploding, not just across the
Roman Empire but the Persian Empire as well,” he said.
By the time
the first Celtic missionaries were evangelizing England in the
sixth and seventh centuries, the church in China was already so
large that it had its own archbishop, he noted. With that in mind,
minority status is not something that worries Tiplady, and he does
not want other evangelicals to be worried about it either.... Read

EVANGELICALS AFTER ALL
Bradley R.E. Wright
evangelical Christianity is ready for its Sally Field moment.
the line we evangelical Christians have gotten it into our heads
that our neighbors, peers, and most Americans don't like us, and
that they like us less every year. I've heard this idea stated in
sermons and everyday conversation; I've read it in books and
a problem, though. It doesn't appear to be true. Social scientists
have repeatedly surveyed views of various religions and movements,
and Americans consistently hold evangelical Christians in
reasonably high regard. Furthermore, social science research
indicates that it's almost certain that our erroneous belief that
others dislike us is actually harming our faith.... Read this in

CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR
CHRIST LOSES DONORS OVER NAME CHANGE
Crusade for Christ's name change to "Cru" has caused a

starting in early 2012.
some, the name change has come as a shock. Ken Connor, chairman of
the Center for a Just Society and who was once involved in CCC,
believes the ministry is making the change to avoid offending
people with such words as "crusade" and "Christ."
He's calling on the organization to rethink its decision and not
leave Christ out.
Steve Sellers, vice president of CCC, has maintained that the new
name had "absolutely nothing to do with being politically

MAVERICK EVANGELICAL POLITICIAN, DIES AT 89
nearly four decades, perhaps American evangelicals' most prominent
and admired politician was a man associated with liberal politics,
one of the country's leading voices against the Vietnam War and
military spending, and a critic of the nascent religious right.

served 30 years in the U.S. Senate and two terms as governor of
Oregon, died Sunday, August 7, at age 89.

said David R. Swartz, assistant professor of history at Asbury
University. "He was morally upstanding, explicitly spiritual,

was exhilarating for them, especially before the 1970s Newsweek

NAVY SEAL OFFICER AARON VAUGHN CELEBRATED FOR HIS FAITH IN JESUS
The family of one
of the 30 US soldiers killed in Afghanistan Aug. 6 by Taliban
forces spoke out about Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn’s love for God
and love for his country on NBC’s Today show. Talking to
Matt Lauer about the brave officer, his wife Kimberly Vaughn, a
former NFL cheerleader, opened up about her husband who was an
“amazing father” and man of faith.
couple, who had been married for three years had two children
together, including a 2-year-old son Reagan, and 2-month old girl
Chamberlyn. Vaughn was present for both of his children’s
births, having last been with his family in June before
volunteering to go back to Afghanistan. When asked what was the
one thing she wanted their kids to learn from their father, she
answered his love. “They will take away his love for Christ.
They will take away his dream and his love for this country.”

IN COURT, OBAMA &
HOUSE ATTORNEYS DIFFER OVER WHETHER KIDS NEED A MOM & DAD
remarkably different court filings that highlight America's
cultural divide on marriage's definition, the US House and the
Obama Justice Department have come to opposite conclusions as to
whether children need a mother and a father in the home.
At issue is
the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 law which defines marriage
in federal law as between a man and a woman and gives states the
option of not recognizing another state's gay "marriages."
In its legal
briefs arguing that the law should be upheld, the legal team hired
by the US House says DOMA, as it's often called, is naturally tied
to procreation and children benefit from having both a mother and
father in the home. The Justice Department has discounted the
procreation argument and argued that the gender of parents does
not matter.... Read this in full at

OF THE EVANGELICAL IMAGINATION
1995, Mark Noll argued in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind that
the problem with evangelicalism is “that there is not much
of an evangelical mind.” His solution was to take
scholarship more seriously. A decade later, Ron Sider argued in
The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience (2005) that the problem
with evangelicalism is that Christians live just like
nonChristians. His solution was to take the social and corporate
implications of the gospel more seriously.
or not these books can be credited with sparking current trends,
it’s clear the spirit of both of them is alive and well in
American Christianity. The so-called “New Reformed”
movement is living out Noll’s call for greater intellectual
engagement and doctrinal sophistication. And legions of younger
Christians are taking up Sider’s vision to seek social
justice in Jesus’ name. I support both of these relatively
recent developments, more or less. But I think they have the same
shortcoming in common. As different as they are, they both appeal
to the intellect in one way or another. They both seem to assume
that if we simply believe the right things (whether it’s the
doctrine of atonement or the Christian’s moral
responsibility in the world) then we’ll behave the right
way.... Read this in full at

than 2.2 billion people, nearly a third (32%) of the world's total
population of 6.9 billion, live in countries where either
government restrictions on religion or social hostilities
involving religion rose substantially between mid-2006 and
mid-2009, according to a new study
on global restrictions on religion released Aug. 9 by the Pew
Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life. Only about
1% of the world's population lives in countries where government
restrictions or social hostilities declined.
general, most of the countries that experienced substantial
increases in government restrictions or social hostilities
involving religion already had high or very high levels of
restrictions or hostilities. By contrast, nearly half of the
countries that had substantial decreases in restrictions or
hostilities already scored low. This suggests that there may be a
gradual polarization taking place in which countries that are
relatively high in religious restrictions are becoming more

QUESTION THE EXISTENCE OF ADAM AND EVE
Barbara Bradley Hagerty
go back to the beginning — all the way to Adam and Eve, and
to the question: Did they exist, and did all of humanity descend
from that single pair?
to the Bible (Genesis 2:7), this is how humanity began: "The
Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

believe the Genesis account. Asked how likely it is that we all

WHY IS WORLD TOILET
DAY (WTD), EVERY NOVEMBER 19TH, NECESSARY?
Heath F. Carelock
may seem to be a strange question to ask of those of us living in
a Western country, but for the huge number of people around the
world living in such terrible conditions; it is a necessary event
because there are 2.6 billion people without access to sanitation.
One of the
only ways to address this challenge in the social realm is through
public awareness that changes public will and changes public
policy, with money and production of sanitation resources to
follow these greater changes. WTD is necessary because people's
dignity is on the line who don't have toilets, and the humanity of
people who can afford toilets is also on the line.
detail often missed is that because people lack sanitation,
diseases are more common and threatening among these populations,
such that over 1 million children die each year from diarrheal
infections and complications.
Jack Sim, founder of the World Toilet Organization, began World
Toilet Day because of these challenges. He wanted the event to
catch on like Earth Day and other signature days like Valentine's
Day. For Jack, it is important that the idea of WTD grows to a
tipping point that people hold their governments responsible for
solutions to solve this solvable problem.... Read this in full at

IS THAT ALL THERE
IS?: SECULARISM AND ITS DISCONTENTS
have a friend, an analytic philosopher and convinced atheist, who
told me that she sometimes wakes in the middle of the night,
anxiously turning over a series of ultimate questions: “How
can it be that this world is the result of an accidental big bang?
How could there be no design, no metaphysical purpose? Can it be
that every life—beginning with my own, my husband’s,
my child’s, and spreading outward—is cosmically
irrelevant?” In the current intellectual climate, atheists
are not supposed to have such thoughts. We are locked into our
rival certainties — religiosity on one side, secularism on
the other — and to confess to weakness on this order is like
a registered Democrat wondering if she is really a Republican, or
are theological questions without theological answers, and, if the
atheist is not supposed to entertain them, then, for slightly
different reasons, neither is the religious believer. Religion
assumes that they are not valid questions because it has already
answered them; atheism assumes that they are not valid questions
because it cannot answer them. But as one gets older, and parents
and peers begin to die, and the obituaries in the newspaper are no
longer missives from a faraway place but local letters, and one’s
own projects seem ever more pointless and ephemeral, such moments
of terror and incomprehension seem more frequent and more
piercing, and, I find, as likely to arise in the middle of the day
as the night.... Read this in full at
