YouTube Just Demonetized Hundreds of Our Videos

It all happened in the course of one night, and it happened quite suddenly. It wasn't just a few videos here and there that were flagged on YouTube. It was dozens of them. No, wait, it was pages of them. No wait, pages and pages of them.

It is clear that toppling towers of dead men who once did bad things or thought bad things will be this era's thundering contribution to making the world a better place. In which case, the least I'd like to ask for is some intellectual consistency.

Christians Believe in Supremacy — in Christ

In all of this talk about supremacy: I want to be very clear. Christians believe in supremacy. In fact, Christians believe in exclusive absolute supremacy. Shocked? But I'm not talking about purple supremacy or green supremacy, black supremacy or white supremacy.

Depending upon when you read this article, you can fill in the blank. As I write, the newest was in Barcelona, Spain, perpetrated (so officials think) by an ISIS-inspired Moroccan.

The Media's Glaring Double Standards on Violence and Hate

"Should the media highlight acts of hatred and violence when carried out by the left?" I'm not talking about Charlottesville here or making a moral comparison between the groups involved. I'm talking about a consistent pattern of dangerous words and deeds from the radical left, most of which get scant attention from the media.

Dyslexia, My Gift

Growing up I didn't know I had dyslexia. I couldn't read until I was in the third grade. I've struggled my entire life to comprehend what I'm reading, to spell words properly, to understand the meanings of words and enunciate them.

Fasting: Starve the Flesh to Feed the Soul

shane-idleman

Sadly, everything, including church functions, is centered around food — potlucks, get-togethers, fellowship gatherings, etc. The last thing we want to talk about is humility through fasting. But we must return to the power of the Spirit​ through brokenness, prayer, humility, and fasting.
