President Barack Obama declared during his speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night that Donald Trump is neither a Republican nor a conservative and that America can never be aided by a "self-declared savior" like him.
Speaking about the GOP's convention last week, Obama commented, "what we heard in Cleveland wasn't particularly Republican — and it sure wasn't conservative."
"What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other, and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems — just the fanning of resentment, and blame, and anger, and hate." more >>
Best-selling author and megachurch pastor Max Lucado's op-ed went viral in February when he uncharacteristically broke his silence on politics, decrying Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's crude antics. But this week he shared his dream where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton "reached a truce."
In his blog post titled "Trump, Hillary, and the Strangest Dream," Lucado recounts falling asleep after watching the Republican National Convention. Also weighing on his mind as he slept was news of national crises like the shooting violence of police officers and African American citizens.
But the convention he dreamed about was not the RNC. more >>

In 1985, social critic named Neal Postman, in the introduction to his book "Amusing Ourselves to Death," compared two famous dystopian visions: "1984" by George Orwell and "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. He noted that though many people thought their visions similar, Huxley and Orwell had very different theories about how people would lose their freedoms.
Orwell thought it would be Big Brother — the all-watching, all-powerful state. Now certainly, in the age of the NSA and TSA, it sounds like he may have been on to something. more >>
There are few sins God hates as much as shedding innocent blood, especially the blood of children. Seeing that Hillary Clinton is a radically pro-abortion candidate and seeing that the Democratic platform reinforces those radical views, can a Christian vote for Hillary in good conscience?
In Jeremiah 19, God explained why the people of Judah were about to go into exile: It was because they worshiped idols and because they "filled this place [speaking of Jerusalem] with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal — something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind" (Jer. 19:4-5).
Because of these heinous sins, Jerusalem was destroyed and the Temple of Yahweh burned to the ground, with tens of thousands going into exile. more >>
