Ending Christian Euphemisms: “Fundamentalist”

Do People Still Hit their Kids?

Yes, they do.  It’s called “spanking.”  Here’s the premise: In order to improve your children’s behavior, you hit them.  Makes virtually no sense, right?  Well, that’s exactly what a new study confirmed: Children who were spanked tend to be more […]

What Is Practical Theology? Part Five
