We know that it’s wrong to physically harm people. But is it ever right to hurt people’s feelings for the sake of God’s truth? For instance, Jesus called the Pharisees a “brood of vipers.”
Idolatry is indeed a threat—a temptation that Christians ought to resist through the Spirit’s leading.
I work for a large corporation. Recently I received a bonus in my paycheck. Though I could really use the money, I think it might have been given by mistake. Do I have an obligation to say anything?
There are some important guiding Reformed principles that could lead us to more convergence.
We must first remember that what is done with the bodies of Christians doesn’t decide their everlasting destiny.
Should Christians receive a vaccine that uses aborted fetal cells in its production?
U.S. law generally allows for the ownership of firearms for purposes of self-defense (much less so in Canada). Whether we as Christians should exercise that right is a harder question.

The Bible says God hates “lying lips,” but there are also stories, such as Rahab helping the Israelite spies, where lying seems to be a good thing. So is lying sometimes okay?
“Righteousness” is another word for “justice,” which can be understood to mean something like “treating each person, thing, or situation rightly or correctly.”
Avoiding social hierarchies does not mean we should eliminate social differences or diversity, but merely the inequality between those differences.
What is wrong with gene editing in embryos if we can save children from horrible genetic diseases?
Many activities that were once forbidden by the church (card playing, dancing, and movie attendance) are now considered fine. But the Bible does not change. Are these changes biblical?
According to one polyamory website, a polyamorous relationship is “a romantic relationship where the people in the relationship agree that it’s okay for everyone to be open to or have other romantic partners.”
We need to discern between right and wrong, good and evil. That is not optional. Neither is holding people accountable for their actions.
People can definitely gamble with their money at the stock market, but that is not what it is intended to do.
