Recently, Stanford Center on Longevity announced a project called the “New Map of Life.” “In the United States,” the authors write, “as many as half of today’s 5-year-olds can expect to live to the age of 100, and this once unattainable milestone may become the norm for newborns by 2050.” The problem, the authors admit, is that we don’t know what t…
 
Recently, we held a public event on the evening before our annual Wilberforce Weekend to talk about how we can prepare to live in a post-Roe world. A very important aspect of that event was learning how we can respond to the common slogans, the common lines that people often throw around in support of abortion. We asked Stephanie Gray Connors, one …
 
Health inequities continue to prevail in the African American communities. Despite economic or social status, people of color are too often treated differently among medical institutions and professionals. The impact of that treatment can have devastating impacts among those treated unfairly. While women are more vocal about this treatment, we tend…
 
John and Maria consider the ethics surrounding protests, looking specifically at the public outcry over the leaked draft opinion of the Supreme Court.

And then to close, John unpacks the reason the Colson Center has selected Th…
 
A month or so ago, Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was asked to define “woman.” She responded, “I’m not a biologist.” That was just a week after a biological male won the NCAA women’s swimming championship. Gender scholars were quick to support Jackson, pointing to biological anomalies such as people who are born “intersex.” But interse…
 
Today launches our annual Wilberforce Weekend. Ten years ago, Chuck Colson gave what would be his final message, at a Wilberforce Weekend event. His message that day was that the world needed the Church to be the Church. His call that day remains the central purpose of the Wilberforce Weekend. This weekend, we will be looking at salvation and redem…
 
For years, sociologist Arthur Brooks has been trying to understand the secret to human happiness. Recently in The Atlantic, Brooks argued that at least part of the answer is wanting less, something taught by teachers as ideologically diverse as the Buddha and Thomas Aquinas. “As we age, we shouldn’t accumulate more to represent ourselves,” writes B…
 
In today's episode, I speak on some of the belief systems we as mothers may have instilled in us that may or may not align with how we want to raise our children today. From parenting, to fitness, to goal setting for business or life, we as moms may struggle to try to do it all especially when we have the opinions and beliefs of others dictating ou…
 
A friend of mine has, for decades now, suffered severe back pain. Finally, surgeons took a remarkable step, implanting a device that sends electrical signals to his spinal cord in order to disrupt pain signals traveling to his brain. For the most part, his pain has been dramatically lessened. This was an incredible help for my friend. After all, pa…
 
Abram Van Engen is a professor of English at Washington University in STL, Executive Director of the Carver Project, and the author of 2 books. The second and most well-known is titled "City on a Hill, a history of American exceptionalism". By way of disclaimer, Abram and Dan both wrote theses on the Puritans, and nerd out about that on this episod…
 
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been immensely expensive, and not only because of global sanctions and lost military equipment. In fact, the highest price Russia is paying in this war has to do with an increasingly scarce resource: lives. Estimates of Russian casualties in just the first week of the war ranged from 2,000 to 6,000, with thousands m…
 
The status of modern friendship isn’t good. “It’s precisely because of the atomized, customized nature of our lives that we rely on our friends so very much,” Jennifer Senior recently wrote in The Atlantic. “We are recruiting them into the roles of people who once simply coexisted with us—parents, aunts and uncles, cousins, fellow parishioners, fel…
 
Last week’s leak of a draft opinion in the Dobbs case reignited comparisons of abortion restrictions with Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. This isn’t new, of course, but it is silly and misguided. Atwood’s dystopian novel is about a fictional theocratic successor to the United States, the “Republic of Gilead.” In Gilead, select women are forc…
 
In 2015, Canada’s Supreme Court struck down a 22-year ban on assisted suicide. The next year, its parliament passed legislation allowing “MAID,” or Medical Assistance in Dying for those who suffer from terminal illness and whose death was “reasonably foreseeable.” Five years later, the “reasonably foreseeable” language was dropped, as was the requi…

Responding to the leaked draft of Justice Alito’s opinion in the Dobbs case, President Biden said, “The idea that we’re gonna make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child ... goes way overboard.” His statement is hard to follow but here’s the point: The president said abortion kills a child—not a…
 
Something long considered reliable evidence for Darwinian evolution, the chemical similarity of living things, is now in question. In 1973, leading Neo-Darwinist Theodosius Dobzhansky wrote that “nothing in biology makes sense except in light of evolution.” He specifically pointed to “biochemical universals,” or shared features in the chemistry of …

Pro-lifers aren’t the only ones strategizing for a post-Roe America. By 2020, chemical abortions—abortions accomplished with oral medications—became the most common form of abortion in America. With the FDA recently permitting doctors to prescribe this poison without even an in-person visit, chemical abortions are only going to become more common. …
 
Many say they want a world without Christianity, but many secular thinkers are discovering they should be careful what they wish for. Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of a public high school football coach who was fired for praying on the field after games.

I don’t love BuzzFeed’s clickbaity and crowdsourced approach to content, but a recent article caught my eye: Reddit users revealing what their childhood was like after their parents divorced. “When we were little, mom worked full-time and dad stayed home with us,” wrote one user. “When I was six, they separated, and we only saw him once, maybe twic…
 
A few years ago, a kids’ book was published titled A is for Activist. On the book jacket is a tiny fist, raised, apparently, in solidarity.

Kendi, The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish and, of course…

In March, online magazine Vox ran a series of stories under the title “America’s Struggle for Forgiveness.” That’s not a typical topic for a thoroughly secular outlet like Vox, but, then again, Christians should be talking about forgiveness more than they are too. “The state of modern outrage is a cycle,” writes contributor Aja Romano: We wake up m…

Recently, a colleague noted how a growing number of conservative-minded people he encountered on social media, some of them Christians, were refusing to believe stories about Russian atrocities in Ukraine.

Many of our favorite stories culminate with a conversion experience. C.S. Lewis’ autobiography, Surprised by Joy is like this, with Lewis fighting God every step of the way until he finally recognizes that Christ is the source of true joy. Another example is Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with Ebenezer Scrooge realizing the error of his ways a…
 
Recently, The New York Times asked six teens to describe what cancel culture “is really like.” Their responses show just how normal the term has become. For many, it’s “basically a joke,” a word thrown around about anything and everything. That’s not surprising for a generation so plugged in and coming of age just as the term has reached critical m…

Is there hope for Hong Kong? That’s the question the city’s citizens, including nearly 1 million Protestant and Catholic Christians, are being forced to ask daily.

In one of the most annoying tech moves since Microsoft’s “Clippy,” Google Docs now offers unsolicited advice about how to avoid using non-inclusive language. Terms like “landlord” or “motherboard” trigger a pop-up warning that reads “these words may not be inclusive to all readers.” The folks at TechRadar were overly generous when they said that th…
 
According to Theodoret of Cyrrhus, on January 1, A.D. 404, an ascetic monk named Telemachus jumped to the floor of the arena during a gladiatorial match, and begged the competitors to stop.

Big marijuana promised not to market to children. They are. For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Legal recreational marijuana sales officially began this week in New Jersey.

America’s teens are not all right. As Derek Thomas recently wrote in an Atlantic article entitled “Why American Teens are So Sad,” From 2009-2021, the share of American high-school students who say they feel “persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness” rose from 26 percent to 44 percent. [This] is the highest level of teenage sadness ever recor…
