Who Is My Neighbor – The Refugee/Immigrant Edition

  With all of the heated conversations I’ve  heard concerning immigration and the refugee crisis (often brought to the forefront by this election cycle), I’ve been constantly reminded of the parable of the Good Samaritan Jesus tells in Luke 10:25–37. As Christians we have to be careful to think about these issues biblically, first and foremost not […]

Election 2016 Thoughts – Part Two: Trump Support Could Hurt Our Gospel Witness

  Today we’re featuring a guest post by Dan Darling, Vice President for Communications at the ERLC. We at B21 are thankful for the ERLC’s leadership in equipping the SBC on issues in the public square and their continued support of our mission to be a pastor-led voice for Baptists in the 21st century.     As they have in every […]
