The United States—and the whole West—stands at a critical point. Will Western Civilization continue to enjoy the fruit of the worldview arising from Judeo-Christian belief, or will it go from twilight to darkness in our lifetimes?
Evangelicalism now may be entering a period of danger. It was assumed that a Hillary Clinton presidency would imperil evangelical Christianity, with its stances on the protection of the unborn, traditional marriage, and other hot issues. But the Trump presidency may present a more subtle danger for the evangelical church.
In 2006 Al Gore gave us "The Inconvenient Truth," his film on what he saw as the environmental disaster. The "inconvenient truth" in 2016 is the moral disaster that there seems no presidential candidate you would trust with your daughter, your son, or your wallet.
The second debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump only confirmed that we are experiencing the most squalid presidential race in modern times.
This is the best we can do? That was my initial impression after the debate September 26 between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Hungary-born globalist billionaire George Soros have squared off on the issue of borders and immigration.
First, borders are not a "worst invention." They are essential in a fallen world. Second, borders were not the "invention" of "politicians," but given by the world's Designer and Creator.
People serious about the biblical worldview must not allow pragmatics, panic, pretense, or Pandora-like idealism to shape their immigration philosophy. Rather, they must look to the Bible for the core principles and build policy upon that foundation.
Having lived through the Wallace era, and, as a young Birmingham newspaper reporter covering him and his exploitation of the race issue to advance his political interests, it was distressing to read recently of college students announcing they wanted roommates of their race only.
America needs regime change — not in the essential form of Constitutional government, but departure from the contemporary regime of power that dominates American politics.
Will America continue down the road of Barack Obama's fundamental transformation of the nation, or will she be pulled back from the precipice to which this route has historically led?
Britain has decided that joining hands and singing "Cum Ba Ya" on the deck of the sinking "Titanic" that is the European Union will not save the ship. Wisely, a majority of her voters saw through the EU illusion and decided they should abandon the vessel.
Immigration without assimilation is annihilation. Europe is proving that thesis right now, as have the massacres in San Bernardino and Orlando.
The President of the United States himself was inspired to pray on June 6, 1944. Millions listened as FDR spoke on radio a prayer that in our age would evoke outrage, condemnation, scorn, and lawsuits.
I confess, I am grieving for the gorilla. To be precise: Harambe, the endangered western lowlands (perhaps) gallant gorilla into whose Cincinnati Zoo den a four-year old boy toppled on May 28.
Reformation and annihilation are not the same thing. Sadly, many of the young tigers who have deluded themselves into believing they are social reformers and their aging establishment sycophants don't know it.
It is not crazy to believe in Hell, but delusional to live without the consciousness of it. The proof is in the facts.
The biggest surprise of the 2016 election is not Donald Trump's blitz or Hillary Clinton's emails or Ted Cruz's cratered campaign.
Mary Kay Beard passed from us on April 17, and I am having a John Donne moment. It was he who said, in paraphrase, that he was diminished by the passing of every person. My world shrunk when Don died in 2006. Now there's a bigger hole in the world because Mary Kay is gone.
They seem to believe that genuine transformation is not as important as following one's own conscience (the Pope) and feeling good about oneself (Joel Osteen).
The authoritarian character of contemporary PC has never been more garishly revealed than in the current battles over freedom of belief and expression. While the genocide of Christians proceeds globally with horrid regularity the great establishments that form America's socio-cultural consensus mobilize their substantial weight upon who gets to go to which bathroom.
"Ted is the anointed one"... Holy Ghost video revealed ... Dad speaking in tongues ... Supporters "lay hands" on Cruz at rally...
Many Americans are in search of an authoritarian rather than a president.
A presidential candidate who cannot manage his campaign staff cannot administer the federal government.
"This is Bernie Sanders headquarters calling." Those words opened one of the strangest and possibly most revealing telephone calls I have ever received.
