After a recent column on "fake news," someone sent me an email, accusing me of propagating fake news by saying the Bible had anything to do with the founding of America. Unfortunately, this reader, like so many others, fails to understand the historical truth that the Bible played a unique role in helping to create the U.S. Constitution.
I think it's a given that in a country where our Constitution forbids the government from abridging the freedom of the press, some might abuse that freedom and declare what is false. There are legal and societal remedies for that. Besides, who gets to define what is "fake news"?
Active Christians are trying to make a difference for Jesus in the box office. The most important thing is that these films are changing lives.
What are Good Friday and Easter all about? In a sentence: Jesus was rejected that we might be accepted.
Crucifixion was a horrible way to die. It was so bad that no Roman citizen could be crucified. It was an execution reserved for slaves and bandits. How amazing then that the Son of God become man would allow Himself to be so degraded by people whom He Himself had created.
Not only are church-going women aborting their babies, there are abortionists today who call themselves "Christians."
Laws on the books don't keep the criminals from getting and using guns. They only stop the law-abiding citizens from access to guns.
We have a toxic stew in our society, where our schools have so often been turned into zones where Judeo-Christian morality is generally not allowed.
Is reckless government spending going to saddle future generations with debts that can't be paid back?
The Huffington Post reports that a member of the American Nazi Party is running unopposed as a GOP candidate in Illinois for an upcoming primary.
We're reaping what we have sown by throwing God out of the schools. Why not let parents decide the best education for their children?
An internet-video star explored a forest in Japan where people go to hang themselves. And he showed (at least partially) one such deceased man. What is going on?
One woman was partly responsible for some 35,000 abortions, and the money was good. But she then found God.
I did an interview with Phil Robertson a few months ago for my radio show, where he commented on a variety of issues from his unique perspective. Here is some of Robertson's wisdom from that interview, on issues ranging from abortion to the true motive of the Las Vegas shooter; from President Trump to religious liberty in our time.
To think that young people today could long for a resurrection of "full communism" just reflects how little they know about history. "History repeats itself," writes British poet Steve Turner. "It has to. No one is listening."
Just in time for Christmas 2017, an atheist group put up a billboard in Dallas with the message: "Just skip church. It's all fake news!" This is right next to a manger scene.
A great evangelical theologian died December 14, 2017, R. C. Sproul (rhymes with role), the founder of Ligonier Ministries. And I think he exemplifies the notion of loving God with our mind, as well as our other faculties.
Jesus Christ is ultimately the solution to the racial divide in America. As Isaiah the prophet foretold: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called 'Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.'"
The Bible says that we should choose life. What a blessing it is to follow God's ways. Just ask virtually any grandparent.
Personally I'd rather "lean" on the One Who made the stars to make sense of the world. He has revealed Himself not only in the stars, but much more clearly in His Word.
With another Thanksgiving upon us, it's good to consider what the Pilgrims endured and how they thanked God through it all.
Sexual scandals, alleged or otherwise, are rocking our country today. One only has to name Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey.
I think what we are seeing in some ways is this: Playboy ethics, but Puritan consequences.
Of course, killing Christians just because they are Christians is the exception in America. However, in about sixty countries on earth, for millions of professing Christians, it is dangerous to be a practicing believer in Jesus, yet God is using Christian martyrdom to grow the church.
Martin Luther was studying law at a university. And he was terribly frightened by a bolt of lightning that came near him. He cried out ...
