Duty and desire in The Crown

My wife and I are almost through the first season.

This battle between duty and desire is as ancient as the Garden of Eden and as contemporary as today. When our duty and desire are one, there is peace. But typically we are at war inside ourselves.

We can’t be pro-life if we’re not anti-poverty

This is challenging:

This isn’t to say that all issues should have the same priority. But it does mean we cannot afford to be morally selective. We cannot work to end abortion while being ignorant of, or unmoved by, the social and economic factors that often contribute to it.

Why didn’t God send Jesus right after Adam and Eve sinned?

That’s a doozy, but Randy Alcorn takes a stab at it here.
