To hear some liberals discuss the Colorado baker case last week, you would have thought it was "Cake-ageddon." In cases not involving sexuality, this issue would be obvious. As one colleague noted, "Should a black printer be forced against his will to print up fliers for the KKK? Should an orthodox Jewish deli owner be forced to serve ham sandwiches?" Yet the absolutists favoring same-sex rights allowed for no freedom of conscience in this area.
There are plans afoot, including by politicians in Connecticut, to effectively abolish the Electoral College. It's a plan for liberals to hitherto control the presidency.
Jesus said the meek shall inherit the earth. But today, could it be that the "geeks" of Silicon Valley are instead trying to inherit the earth?
The hostility against religion in general, but Christianity in particular, can get downright vicious. In Santa Fe, the ACLU filed suit to halt prayers at a baccalaureate service, privately sponsored by a group of ministers in 1995. Just to make sure they got the message, Kent declared, "Anybody who violates these orders, no kidding, is going to wish that he or she had died as a child when this court gets through with it."
Some people virtually celebrate abortion. Just because evil may prevail for a time, God will only allow it for a while.
I can't believe the depth of ignorance of many modern people in the West. Mass murderer Joseph Stalin, ruthless dictator of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, appears to be making a comeback, at least among some.
What about those who want to serve as a medical missionary yet they have an unpaid student loan that helped train them to become a doctor, a nurse, a physical therapist?
From time to time, someone objects to the need to attend church regularly. They say they can be good Christians without participating in church. I don't agree.
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.
