Jesus Predicted Trump and Clinton

Jesus and the biblical authors predicted this thousands of years ago. Not that Trump and Clinton would be opponents in this election. But that people throughout history would behave like Trump and Clinton.

7 LGBTQ Contradictions

"People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive," said Blaise Pascal. Indeed, attraction not reason is the engine of the LGBTQ movement.

The Source of the World's Evil and How to Fix It

How do we fix a world filled with murder, rape, betrayal, adultery, fraud, theft, sexual exploitation, pornography, bullying, abortion, terrorism, cheating, lying, child abuse, racism, assault, drugs, robbery, and countless other evils?

God's Crime Scene

It's about 2 a.m. on an August morning in 1979. A beautiful young nurse by the name of Lynne Knight is living in a bungalow behind a larger house in Torrance, California.

The Atheist and His Metal Detector

I grew up on the Jersey shore. Every summer morning I'd see several men combing the beach with metal detectors looking for jewelry and change lost the day before. One lost diamond earring or ring could pay for the metal detector several times over.

Obama Hijacks Christianity to Defend Islam

President Obama has hijacked Christianity in an attempt to defend Islam. At the National Prayer breakfast Thursday, he said, "There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith." And that there will always be people willing to "hijack religion for their own murderous ends."

Book Review: David Limbaugh's 'Jesus on Trial' Is a Winning Verdict

When David Limbaugh let his friend Steve know that he had doubts about Christianity, he was surprised by Steve's response. Instead of a blast of arrogant judgmentalism, Steve responded like a Christian should—with grace and evidence. What has happened since that time is told in Limbaugh's excellent new book, Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel.

The Jewish Temple That May Prevent World War III

Israel is the most contested piece of real estate in the world. And the most contested piece of real estate within Israel is the temple mount in the old city of Jerusalem. Nearly every Jew believes that the Muslim Dome of the Rock, which dominates that thirty-six acre site, sits on the spot of all previous Jewish Temples, including the last one destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. Many Jews and Christians believe that the temple must be and will be rebuilt on that spot. Therein lies the problem. Can you think of a faster way to start World War III?

Same Sex Marriage: Stealing Heresy From God

Anyone who opposes same-sex marriage is wrong, says the "gay mafia"-the term the liberal TV personality Bill Maher gave to homosexual activists who "whack" dissenters. According to them, same sex marriage is now not only a "right," no one has the right to oppose it. This new right is so powerful it has completely wiped out the old rights that our founding fathers enshrined in our Constitution: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association.

Natural Marriage is Not Bigotry, It's Biology

What reasons, other than religious reasons, might someone want to keep marriage defined as only the union of one man and one woman? There are actually thousands of reasons. They are born each day. Marriage must be protected to protect children.

What Was the Crucifixion Like?

What was the extent of the physical suffering Jesus endured at the crucifixion? Consider that the English word "excruciating" is from the Latin meaning "out of the crucifixion." I've found that the best way to comprehend the magnitude of the Christ's physical suffering on Good Friday is to read the following description that we've adapted from the work of medical doctor, C. Truman Davis.

Freedom: Another Casualty of the Gay Agenda

If you think that same sex marriage and "non-discrimination" laws are all about love and tolerance, you couldn't be more wrong. A decision out of the New Mexico Supreme Court last week clearly shows why. The decision is itself intolerant and discriminatory.
