Is it a Time for Anger?

One of the many prospective presidential candidates recently made the statement that he is not an “angry conservative,” implying that it is better to keep a happy face than to give in to emotions about current events and policies. That phrase, however, is reminiscent of the pejorative “angry white male”...

The Truth About Lies

The Truth about Lies

Just before mid-night July 25th, a nine foot statue of Baphomet was unveiled in Detroit, to the cheers of hundreds of paying attendees shouting “Hail Satan.” Just a day earlier, a United States senator decried his senate leader’s lying to 54 members of his party three times, “like Peter,” referencing...

Destroying the Church by a Thousand Cuts

Abraham Lincoln did not believe that any enemy from abroad could destroy America.  He did, however, believe that America could be destroyed from within. He warned: “At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected?  I answer.  If it ever reaches us it must spring up amongst...

Wiping the Shame from Christ’s Face

When sinners flaunt their sin, it is to be expected.  The heathen rage, Psalm 2 tells us, “against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”  So the image of a mostly naked man painted in rainbow colors...

What’s Wrong With Evangelicals?

There has been a certain amount of concern expressed over the lack of depth of conversions in recent years, particularly in North America.  Statistics have shown that the moral climate among evangelical young people is almost no different than that among non-believers.  And among evangelical churches, the rate of family...

Inverted Morality

Who’s to say what is right and wrong?  That was a question that the radicals in the 1960’s often asked.  Those of us who were among them and heard their arguments realized that they wanted to throw off the restraints of Christian beliefs that had been historically embraced by our...

Backslide Proofing

Is there a way to backslide-proof people who live for Jesus?  A recent study of American churches (2014) stated that of people in their 20s who once went to church, 53% now do not attend.  Of those still attending, 40% say they have never been born again.  Those who still...
