What Should Christians Think on Climate Change?

Lately, it seems as if there’s a Cold War between liberals and conservatives. On the one hand, liberals claim the earth’s global climate is changing so drastically that if we don’t do something about it, it’s going to wipe out all life on earth and mankind is to blame because how we treat the earth…

Remember, Remember, The Gift of Your Baptism

Today is November 5th, and you know what that means! Countless social media references to the famous V for Vendetta line, “Remember, remember, the fifth of November.” Why remember the fifth of November?
