The leaders of the  Southern Baptist Church, America’s largest Protestant denomination, have gotten themselves into a tizzy over the supposed lack of diversity in their denomination.

Since the Bible never endorses an amnesty for illegal aliens, saying that it does requires some – how shall we say? – creative hermeneutics.   But open boosters don’t shy away from doing so.

An ambitious 12-part miniseries entitled A.D.: The Bible Continues began its broadcast on Easter.    I saw the first episode and am interested in seeing more of it.

The crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ are foundational to the Christian faith. That’s why the major branches of Christendom (Roman Catholic, Protestant and the Eastern Churches) memorialize – in various ways – the death, burial and resurrection of Christ each spring. Mexico has a variety of traditional Easter customs, many of them deriving […]

Within the next few years, the U.S.-Mexican border may have a very famous world figure crossing it on foot.  Pope Francis himself, the first Latin American pontiff, has expressed a desire to do so.

President Obama has recently announced his intention to chamge U.S. Cuba policy.   How is that going to turn out? Coincidentally, my family and I visited Cuba last summer.  (See Our Summer 2014 Trip to Mexico and the Island-nation of Cuba.)

Americans are forbidden by the U.S. government to visit Cuba as tourists, but are allowed to visit Cuba for cultural, scientific or religious […]
