John Stonestreet and Shane Morris discuss the tragic killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the hard questions we as Christians must ask--and answer. Also on this week's episode: The bizarre story of the Central Park "Karen" who called the police on an African American birdwatcher--and the destruction of her personal life by the twittersphere; …
 
Recently. a New York Times article drew attention to a corona that’s not a virus and that makes life possible instead of threatening it. The corona or outermost part of the sun’s atmosphere puzzles astronomers because it is, as compared with similar stars, so calm. We take the sun for granted, unless it disappears for a few cloudy days or burns us …
 
A recent poll conducted by the University of Chicago and the Associated Press concluded that “the coronavirus has prompted almost two-thirds of American believers of all faiths to feel that God is telling humanity to change how it lives.” For Christians, who know from Scripture that God has revealed Himself as the ultimate and consistent communicat…
 
Created seventy-five years ago this October, the United Nations was hailed as “the last, best hope for peace,” a moniker that proved neither true nor possible (though, as I once heard a former Israeli special forces guy put it, “no one ‘monitors’ better”). A recent tweet reveals how the organization’s goal has been expanded to include the ever-elus…
 
Truth, Love, Together. That’s the theme of the Colson Center’s 4-week long virtual event featuring 20 of the leading Christian worldview thinkers. We’re now into module 2: And today on the BreakPoint Podcast we have an astounding, moving presentation by Joni Eareckson Tada: “The Love of God, or How We Know What Love Is.” To see and hear all of our …
 
Before the coronavirus, Memorial Day meant a day off, maybe staying at home, relaxing, grilling out with neighbors, family, and friends. Since the coronavirus, “being home” is more like “being stuck at home.” So perhaps we can redeem this day by recapturing the essence of Memorial Day: honoring those who, out of love of country, sacrificed their li…
 
The Constitution is pretty clear: Freedom of Religion is not negotiable. Yes, governments can restrict religious freedom, but only under very special circumstances and only for a limited time. That's why, as Shane Morris and John Stonestreet discuss, the Department of Justice is telling California it cannot single out churches restrictions it does …
 
Restaurants, theatres, sports teams, and theme parks are scrambling to figure out if and how they can get people back to business. At the same time, and far more important for many of us, churches are trying to figure out how to reopen, too. Not only are such plans complicated by official regulations and recommendations that differ from state to st…
 
Why are people so attracted to beautiful “natural scenes like green fields, trees, and rivers?” Nostalgia, maybe? A sense of wonder? Some inherent draw to what is aesthetically pleasing? Nah. According to some thinkers, “science” has figured out that we are drawn to natural beauty because for our ancestors, such scenes “represented survival." By “s…
 
Truth, Love, Together. That’s the theme of the Colson Center’s 4-week long virtual event featuring 20 of the leading Christian worldview thinkers. The first of five modules for the event is called “What Is Truth?” And today on the BreakPoint Podcast, to give you a taste of Module 1, we’re sharing with you the presentation by Os Guinness called “The…
 
Last week, 40-year-old Joyce Lin, an American missionary with Mission Aviation Fellowship, lost her life when her plane crashed. Lin was taking COVID-19 medical supplies to a remote Indonesian village. The region where she was flying is notoriously difficult to navigate, but Lin went anyway. As her colleagues attested, her great joy was serving the…
 
According to Summit Ministries President Jeff Meyers, unquestioned answers are Christians cliches that keep our faith at a shallow level--and not only are they excuses for Christians to avoid wrestling with the tough questions about our faith, but they are also bad apologetics in a time when many outside the faith are looking for real answers. Shan…
 
John Stonestreet and Shane Morris discuss the departure of the Samaritan's Purse field hospital from New York City, having provided health care to hundreds of Gothamites during the pandemic. Amazing how the city found no instance of discrimination by the Christian group, yet the New York Times all but buried the story. Meanwhile LGBTQ advocates con…
 
Recently, prompted by the news that CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and his homosexual partner paid a woman to carry a child for them, my colleague Maria Baer and I released a BreakPoint commentary on the serious ethical problems of surrogacy. Surrogacy intentionally breaks the mother/father/child connection, commodifies both babies and women’s bodies, …
 
The 2020 Academy Award for best short subject documentary went to “Learning to Skateboard in a War Zone.” The film tells the story of “Afghan girls who learn to skate through a program run by a Berlin-based NGO.” The NGO’s stated mission is to train young people to “become leaders for a better world,” through a combination of skateboarding lessons …
 
In 1965, a group of “bored witless” Catholic boarding school boys on the South Pacific island of Tonga, ages 13 to 16, decided to “borrow” a boat and escape to Fiji, which was 500 miles away, and maybe even to New Zealand. As any parent of any teenage boy will tell you, their plans aren’t always fully thought-through. Such was the case with these b…
 
What is it like to portray the lead character in the story of the entire universe? Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, Shane Morris welcomes Jonathan Roumie, who plays Jesus on the extremely well-done and enormously successful video series, "The Chosen." Roumie discusses the series's approach to the Gospels, to plausible "back stories" of the disciple…
 
Biographer, apologist, former BreakPoint co-host, and host of the popular radio show bearing his name, Eric Metaxas joins Shane Morris on the BreakPoint podcast to talk about his new book, Seven More Men and the Secret of Their Greatness. Eric talks about his desire to re-introduce true heroes of the faith to modern believers, men like preacher Geo…
 
Whoever said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty,” was certainly correct. Especially in times of crisis. For instance, it took a lawsuit to convince Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker to allow religious people to leave their homes to exercise their freedom of religion. Under his original executive order, the governor would permit “Essential Busin…
