Individualism is the Enemy in the Fight Against Abortion

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: Culture

We Americans are a warlike people, always ready to take up arms, and the “culture wars” have put us all on high alert. While the urgency surrounding many cultural issues fails to live up to the alarmist rhetoric, abortion is, in fact, an immediate crisis. The fight for the unborn is the good fight. I wonder, however, if we’ve got the true enemy in our sights. There may be a common ...

How Men Process Heart Change

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: General, Culture

For the next several months, we, The Village Church, will dive deep into our hearts—a frightening proposition for many men. What is this mysterious beating orb at my core that supposedly contains all my hopes, dreams, fears and failures? Is the heart of the problem truly a problem of the heart, and if so, how do I get to the bottom of it to make repairs? Will I have to talk for hours on end ...

Diversity Makes Better Humans

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: General

God, as triune Three-in-One, created humans in His image as persons-in-relation – forever confronted with the differences among them. Sameness, the failure to recognize differences, therefore does not capture God’s heart for creation and His communitarian nature. Diversity is at the core of a relational creation that glorifies God. Differences honor God in that they make for better ...

Praying for Government Officials

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: General, Culture

God-imaging humans are social creatures; “persons-in-relation” is the prescribed human condition. The triune God, in His wisdom, set up specific structural communities that act as scaffolding on which these relationships would hang. These structural communities are called institutions. Family, Church, and School are institutions that are close to the heart of most. Industry (enterprise) and ...

Gust and Disgust

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: General, Theology

Gustus is Latin for “taste” of which the Middle English gust follows, adding to the meaning a hint of savoring or delighting in the flavor of food. Dis-gust, then, means the opposite – revulsion or repulsion. Disgust comes quick – a violent gag reflex, sweaty brow and sour gut, followed by a general loss of appetite. For all the God-directed insistence to worshipfully enjoy good food and ...

Render to Caesar

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: General, Culture

Israel wanted a king like the surrounding nations. God gave them one with a warning: “You won’t like him.” Samuel reported to Israel God’s words and said the king “will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants. He will take your ...

Help From Other Worlds: Another Earth and Melancholia

Author: Adam LancasterCategory: Culture

It’s not surprising that humanity’s hope in himself to bring about ultimate meaning has fallen on hard times lately. Another Earth (2010) and Melancholia (2011) are just a couple of recent big screen portrayals of man’s planet-sized disappointment. It’s encouraging that his failures have caused him to look outside himself, but in these two dramas, man looks not to the Savior but through ...
