  • On Forgiveness and Abuse

    rachelheldevans.com 11 Nov '17, 6pm

    Dan and I were talking about this yesterday, and Dan put it like this: “An apology is for the benefit of the bully/ abuser. Forgiveness is for the benefit of the victim. It releases the victim from lingering damage caused by past abuse. But it's a mistake to tell anyone in an abusive ...

  • Are you being persecuted?

    rachelheldevans.com 06 Nov '17, 5pm

    There is a pernicious rumor that resurfaces every Advent season and spreads across social media faster than a cold in a kindergarten class. It’s the rumor that God can be “kept out” of Christmas. You may have heard it from Kirk Cameron or an anchor at Fox News or an army of culture wa...

    Wrap a shawl around your shoulders. A good color would be black, and without any prints. So if you need to move your fingers a little, no one will be able to see it happen under your shawl. My fingers got so cold and numb today, what with the air-conditioning and rainy weather outside...

    This is not a post about Calvinism. Not really. It’s not about TULIP or John Piper or predestination or the Reformation. It’s not about why I think Calvinism is a theological system based on logical inferences rather than the clear, consistent teachings of Scripture. It’s not about al...
