Timothy Plan for The Christian Post: How does ESG stack up against biblically responsible investing?


No Comments

By Art Ally for The Christian Post

There’s a lot of talk today about ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing. Millennials in particular are gravitating toward companies that match their values.

“Millennials are nearly twice as likely to invest in companies or funds that target specific environmental or social outcomes,” according to a recent Ernst & Young report. The survey also says that “29% of investors in their 20s and 30s seek a financial advisor that provides values-based investing.”

The Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries for Townhall.com: Are Nonprofit Hospitals Really Nonprofit?


No Comments

By Katy Talento for Townhall.com

People are often shocked to discover the not-so-charitable truth about their local “nonprofit” hospital. “Nonprofits” have strong religious affiliations and reputations for charitable care for low-income families. They must be a beacon of community service as required by federal law, right?

The American Family Association on The American Spectator: After Dobbs, Social and Fiscal Conservatives Must Work Together on Pro-Family Policies


No Comments

By Dr. Jameson Taylor for The American Spectator

Having engineered passage of the Mississippi law that resulted in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, I have wondered about the larger political implications of reversing Roe v. Wade. The answer is slowly coming to light, revealing serious divisions between social and fiscal conservatives and raising questions about the sustained political influence of a unified conservative movement. 

For the last 40 years or so, the conservative movement has comprised social conservatives and fiscal conservatives. Much ink has been spilled over whether a person who is fiscally conservative but socially liberal is a “real” conservative. With the reversal of Roe, it is becoming clear that many in the socially conservative wing of the party are at least somewhat fiscally liberal. Thus, many pro-lifers are calling for an expansion of the welfare state, “even if,” as Chuck Donovan of the Charlotte Lozier Institute admits, “it frustrates spending conservatives.”

Timothy Plan for Charisma News: A ‘Screwtape’ Approach to Attempt to Keep Christians from Biblically Responsible Investing


No Comments

By Art Ally for Timothy Plan

My dear niece Asherah:

You have failed miserably, and the consequences will be as bad as you can imagine. You could have kept the patient from discovering Biblically Responsible Investing with our tried-and-true methods of clickbait with intriguing images, random phone calls, the fake urgency of constantly checking email and the always reliable blackhole of social media. You allowed the patient to learn how we use his money, and that was the beginning of the end—at least for you.

The Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries for Townhall: In Defense of Americans Against Pharmacy Benefit Managers


No Comments

By Katy Talento for Townhall

When I served as a White House health advisor, I invited a group of large employers to come describe the challenges company health plans faced. The top complaint? An obscure type of middleman that’s part of every health plan — the pharmacy benefit manager (PBM). The PBM industry, with only three giant companies controlling almost 80 percent of the market, offers a seemingly simple value proposition: if you’re an employer or an insurance carrier serving individuals or businesses, hire the PBM to help you get volume discounts on prescription drug makers.

Sounds great! But, what if these middlemen pocketed much of the savings instead of passing them on to employers?

Timothy Plan for Townhall: Both Inflation and Inaction are Unbiblical


No Comments

By Art Ally for Timothy Plan

Americans are reeling under an inflation rate now estimated at nearly 10 percent. This not only reduces the value of people’s earnings and savings but also violates the biblical principle of sound money.

The Bible contains more than 100 verses dealing with the importance of honesty and reliable standards of value. For instance, Proverbs 20:10 says, “Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the Lord.”

Fellowship of Christian Athletes for The Christian Post: Called to Something More


No Comments

By Sarah Freymuth for The Christian Post

It’s the greatest feeling in the world when we make a team, get selected as captain or hit any milestone worth celebrating. We revel in knowing we’re seen and chosen.

As we’ve been invited to live in every way like Christ, it gets personal when we realize we’re called by God for intimate relationships. He invites us to join Him in the work He’s doing to bring His Kingdom to earth. We’re called to love like Him, lead with courage and make disciples to duplicate the great news of salvation through Jesus.

D. L. Moody Center for The Western Journal: Christians, Don’t Aim for ‘Less Lost’ – Point Others to the Way That Leads to Resurrection


No Comments

By Dr. James Spencer for The Western Journal

What we point people to is just as important as what we point them away from.

As President Joe Biden uses biblical language (“image of God”) to justify his position on the trans movement and Disney goes woke, Christians can easily get caught up in opposing the crisis du jour. We may find ourselves pointing back to the Judeo-Christian ethic, the nuclear family or the Constitution rather than pointing to Christ.

As the world becomes increasingly proficient at creating and promoting stories that deny God, God’s people will likely be tempted to point others toward stories that seem to deny God just a little less.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes for The Christian Post: The 2 most powerful words


No Comments

By Dan Britton for The Christian Post

Over the years, I have read, memorized and written hundreds of prayers. One of these prayers has powerfully transformed my life. I usually utter it dozens of times throughout the day — most of the time out loud. It is a simple but powerful two-word prayer that has helped me understand both my weaknesses and God’s strengths. What is this two-word prayer?

“Yes, Lord!”

U.S. Parents In Education for The Washington Times: Reining in federal agency mission creep


No Comments

By Sheri Few for The Washington Times

The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has dominated the media’s attention, even while there was another opinion released at the end of the court’s term with far-reaching implications. This other opinion has received less attention in the wake of the Dobbs opinion, but the decision, handed down June 30, 2022, is portrayed by the media as having curtailed President Biden’s ability to control “climate change.” 

What may have been overlooked by most mainstream media is an incredible precedent that should now be applied to all over-regulators. It is a sound constitutional limit on all federal agencies to stay within their congressionally defined powers.
