But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

“Make War on your urge to sulk” by John Piper

One of the reasons John Piper is such a blessing to me (and to so many) is that he is so honest and real about his own sinful tendencies; and also probably for me, these characteristics describe my sinful personality also. This is a good...

THE root problem is sin in the heart (Genesis 6:5; Mark 7:20-23; Jeremiah 17:9) and rebellion against God (Romans 1:18-28; 3:9-23; Psalm 14), but as far as our Universities go and how they have affected our current society, culture, media, and politics, Peterson nailed it.
