Drop Box: Following the ministry of a South Korean pastor, this extremely well done documentary film powerfully depicts the sanctity of life and shows why Christians should care for orphans.

How NOT To Be a Racist: This thoughtful piece by Bryan Lorrits gets at the heart of the racial divide that still exists in our country. “Those who confine themselves to their own culture, and never come out to richly taste and engage in others will unfortunately remain completely unaware to life’s not so sweet realities, and in the process will become unaware of themselves.”

Parenting Means Wrestling Demons: Proclaiming biblical truth with the anecdotes of experience, Jonathan Parnell reminds us that while Jesus loves the little children of the world, Satan hates them. “If we go into the work of parenting with a Precious Moments romanticism, it won’t be long before despair sets in. It’s just too hard if we think it’s going to be easy. It’s essential to know, especially when the going gets tough, that we are fighting hell.”

ISIS Isn’t About Jobs: “ISIS is being as provocative as it can be precisely because it wants to bring about the end of days according to its understanding of Islamic teaching.” Rob Schwarzwalder then illuminates why the response of Western leadership is, in many ways, impeded due to their denial and/or misunderstanding of ISIS’s religious motivations. “Secularists simply have great difficulty grasping that religion actually motivates behavior.”

Why Do We Plant Churches Among the Unreached?: The first of a series of posts titled 3 Ways Engaging Other Nations Brings More Glory to God, Kevin Peck clearly sets the stage with a clear and concise explanation of the biblical call to cross-cultural missions. “From Genesis 1 to Genesis 12:2 to the Prophets to the Great Commission we can see God declaring His glory through His people to all nations. God’s economy is founded on his blessing of a people who will become a blessing, so that others may glorify him.”

Radical exists to equip the church to be on mission.

Less than 1% of all money given to missions goes to unreached people and places.*

That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Let's change that!
