Dear Roger, Can a church look good on the outside, and yet really lose their love for Christ? How can you tell? I never want that church to be mine, or that person to be me!

Old Testament characters like Jonah, Job, David and Hosea demonstrate the transforming power and grace of God in lives that have been broken and in need of repair. Redeeming love covered over the "broken places" and brought new life to these real-life heroes of the faith.
An episode of ABC’s Modern Family captures the split in American opinions about porn. Claire Dunphy finds a dirty picture on one of their computers and assumes it was her 10-year-old son Luke who looked at it. Claire calls it unacceptable “smut.” Her husband Phil (the one who actually downloaded the picture) tries to chalk it up to sexual curiosity. Claire’s solution is...
