God promises us an eternal reward, but not a patriotic badge in this life.
Human parenting, and especially human fathering, points and shows something of what it means to know God and who God is.
We need to stop pretending that Jesus does not call his churches to act on behalf of the poor, the sojourner, the fatherless, the vulnerable, the hungry, the sex-trafficked, the unborn.
Evangelicals tend to only follow the spiritual aspect of Jesus’s mission, but this falls short of obeying the Lord’s command.
