  • 2021 Public Policy Agenda

    The inauguration of a new president and the swearing-in of a new Congress always means a time of change and new beginnings. The 117th Congress, though, begins in a time of unique peril and uncertainty for our country. A global pandemic—and the resulting economic distress—along with the January 6 insurrection against our country mean that

  • Chaos at the Capitol: A Conversation about Conspiracies and Violence

    We begin 2021 with a conversation between Jeff Pickering and Russell Moore about the attack on the U.S. Capitol, and not just that as a lone event but all that led up to it. The constant assault on the truth and reality of the 2020 presidential election, that Joe Biden won and Donald Trump lost,

  • Jesus Will Have the Last Word

    Nearly two years have passed since the Houston Chronicle launched a series of articles exposing an abuse crisis among an alarmingly large number of Southern Baptist churches. That investigation into church sexual abuse told about the harm done to over 700 survivors, including children as young as 3 years old. What stood out in these

  • Adam and Eve After #MeToo

    Perhaps you can remember an occasion where something was said and you felt a shudder of shame. Such a moment happened for me a couple of years ago, when I had convened a group of conservative evangelical women leaders to talk about various issues affecting the church. The conversation turned to the awful revelations of

  • Why are we reluctant to do what’s right?

    Several years ago, a friend of mine was consulted by a white evangelical church in Birmingham as to why their church was in such precipitous decline, given their storied history of success. At the time of the white supremacist bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church across town, a terrorist attack that killed four young

  • Religious Liberty For All

    The protection of religious liberty has long been an objective of Baptists in America, but exactly how should Christians understand this issue? And why does it matter? In this book, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission answers these questions by explaining why Christians came to be concerned with the issue of religious liberty in the

  • Why politics overwhelms everything

    Editor’s note: This article was originally from Russell Moore’s newsletter. Keep up with the latest updates by signing up here. A friend has taken to texting me every day, “Nine more days,” ”Eight more days.” He’s referring, of course, to the countdown to Election Day 2020. His point is that 2020 is exhausting enough—with pandemics

  • Why life should be viewed as a miracle

    Over the years, I’ve been surprised by how often my life has been upended by little books. Augustine’s City of God influenced me, but the much smaller Confessions changed me. Carl Henry wrote six volumes of God, Revelation, and Authority—and I have referenced it often—but what altered my life was his tiny manifesto, The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism.

  • What is the basis for Christian ethics?

    Perhaps the moment was around a campfire. Maybe all that could be heard were the sounds of crickets in the woods around, along with the crackling of the flame and one voice talking. Jesus was telling his disciples of his impending arrest, and saying, it seemed irrationally, that they should not be troubled about what was to come. “In my Father’s house there are many rooms.” He said to them, And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself that were I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going” (John 14:3-4).
