After He rose from the dead, Jesus told His disciples that all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. Therefore, He commanded them to go and make disciples of all nations. In this sense, the idea of "Christian hegemony" gets back to Jesus Himself. After all, Christianity is Christ.
In America, you should be free to disagree. But under a new form of tyranny, that is no longer the case. The left is saying in effect, "Do it our way or we'll see you in court."
Earlier this month in Philadelphia, there was the 17th annual "White Privilege Conference," which a friend describes as a "liberal confab devoted to self-abnegation."
There is a war being waged against a major symbol of Christianity — the cross.
Nowhere is it written that America will always remain free. In fact, Thomas Jefferson and other founders warned about threats to our freedom. Jefferson noted that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
But, of course, "fetus," a term those who favor abortion rights use to dehumanize the child, is actually Latin for unborn baby. Words can give life. Words can kill. Planned Parenthood has now rebuked Hillary for calling a "fetus" an "unborn child."
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.
Is anyone concerned that a casino owner is a major candidate for president? Not too long ago casinos were only legal in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and on Indian reservations.
A reader responded to that article negatively, raising a common objection that the founders supposedly intended a secular government, one that was free from biblical influence.
A great man has died, Antonin Scalia. Imagine his great homecoming to be with his Lord, whom he ultimately served.
Imagine sacrificing to send your children off to college — forking over thousands of dollars, so they can have a future. Then they end up in an introduction to psychology class ... where they are taught that Christians are more dangerous than radical Islam.
It is amazing that people today want to treat anything from the Bible as if it's asbestos, to borrow a line from Christian attorney Jordan Lorence, if it somehow shows up in a public school.
The best solution for America's crime problem can be seen when a criminal is transformed through faith in Jesus. In fact, it does quite often, usually under the radar.
Are our churches dying? Are young people leaving the church in droves? Is evangelicalism in America all but dead?
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!"
It has been said that "religion is box office poison." Mel Gibson disproved that 11 years ago with "The Passion of the Christ."
The move to censor God from society is all too familiar to a man who grew up in an atmosphere of forced atheism. As a child, all he ever wanted was to live in "the land of the free."
Once the Supreme Court has ruled, that's it. Case closed. Right? Not necessarily.
