Virtually a week does not go by without some headline of a Muslim attack somewhere in the world. The latest stories involves the alleged crucifixion of a Christian priest on Good Friday, as well as an Easter suicide bombing targeting Christians in Pakistan, which killed 71 at last count.
If Jesus Christ walked out of His tomb after His death, then certainly everything He said about Himself — that He is the Lord, the way, the truth, and the life — would all receive a stamp of approval.
If ideas are so good, then they should be allowed to be heard in the marketplace of ideas. While conservatives get accused of censorship, it seems to me that in our day, the liberals and what I call "the shock troops of tolerance," are the real censors.
The scary thing about these tip of the iceberg examples of widespread ignorance is that these people vote.
The title of a recently released film caught my attention: "The Gods of Egypt." This column is not about the film, but rather it addresses God's judgment on the gods of Egypt by way of the ten plagues.

Europe is on the eve of changing forever. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have been leaving the tumult of the Middle East and Northern Africa to stream into Europe. One report estimates that three million more refugees are yet to come. This could mean the Islamization of Europe.
Do you want this next year to be happier than the last? A first century letter written in prison by the Apostle Paul to the Philippian Christians has much advice on how to know true joy, and much of it was confirmed in May, 2015 by a major study released by the Mayo Clinic.
Ted Cruz is beginning to surge significantly in the polls in Iowa. Surely the evangelicals in Iowa are the key factor.
A relative plans to come down to Miami in January to run the marathon. He called me recently and asked, "Hey, Jerry, am I going to be able to run in the streets of Miami? I hear from Obama that because of climate issues, the streets there are flooded, even with fish!"
