Editorial: Can Orlando’s horror yield grace?

Nothing will bring Orlando’s victims back to life. But may their deaths cause all of us to see our common humanity. May their loss help many Christians stop seeing gays and lesbians as objects. And may Christians who see others as God’s beloved creation express the love of Jesus to all people around us.

Editorial: Should Baylor be a nation or a family?

Which is accurate or more desirable: "Baylor Nation" or "Baylor family"? The university's self-descriptions provide a metaphor for considering its identity crisis.

Editorial: Searching souls as we decide how to vote

Many Christians have made abortion their political litmus test. Should other issues disqualify presidential candidates from fitness for office?

       

Editorial: Baylor's ideals must top gridiron glory

Baylor University must attain the standards Texas Baptists who love it expect of it. A national championship or even a single game is not worth a rape. Baylor—and its ideals—are far bigger than football.

Editorial: Texas’ public education funding is constitutional, immoral

Texas children do not receive equal opportunity. Poor children and children whose parents speak little or no English suffer from substandard education.

Editorial: How do Americans find their way?

Americans agree we’ve lost our way. But we can’t concur on where we are, much less how to get where we’re going and which map to follow. So, what do we do?

Editorial: Honor mothers by loving foster children

What if Texas Baptists decided we would follow Jesus (who said, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me”) and honor our mothers by declaring we will care for Texas’ neediest children?

Editorial: How should Christians treat others?

The best way to validate the gospel is to embody Jesus’ love for others. Shouting damnation only drives them further away.

Editorial: What kind of president do you want?

We need empathy now, more than ever: In our next president. In all our leaders. May empathy begin in our own lives, in our own thoughts, in our own behaviors.

       

Editorial: Fear not—why we need Easter this year

The explosions in Belgium remind us that fear and fragility mark our physical existence like a macabre tattoo. But the things we fear are not ultimate, much less eternal.
