In 2007, Ted Haggard submitted to church authorities who required him to move out of the state of Colorado, find employment outside of ministry, never acknowledge that he had ever pastored New Life Church, and never correct misinformation in the press (see crisis facts for additional details). Alexandra Pelosi, a family friend of the Haggards, and her husband and newly born son, came to visit and recorded this material on their family video camera. After Ted was released from the Overseer’s contract, Alexandra took the footage to HBO who created and aired this documentary.

    The development of self-driving vehicles has required that we write algorithms to determine who will be protected in an accident: Humans over animals? Young people over the elderly? Females over males? Pedestrians over passengers? It makes us question: what are we worth? […]

  • Is Water Baptism Relevant to Your Eternal Life?
    by tedhaggardblog on October 25, 2018 at 3:47 pm

    John the Baptist was saying that we all need to turn from the evil that is within us and seek God’s goodness in order for our own hearts to be transformed. Our human goodness is insufficient, even if we express our goodness by trying to please God. As every student of history knows, human attempts at goodness in the name of God often result in horrific tragedy. […]

  • Will Only Those “In Christ” Be Resurrected?
