A Practical Suggestion for NFL Players

Dear NFL Athletes, As a fan rather than a critic, may I offer a suggestion to you regarding the national anthem? it seems like the league can get very political on some fronts. And who is affected by this? You and the fans. This is not fair and this is not right.

Here's What Roy Moore's Victory Really Means

It's often said that you can know a man by his enemies. That being the case, we can know a lot about Judge Roy Moore by the blaring headline on Huffington Post last night: "Alabama Earthquake: GOP Picks Outsider Bigot." Translated, this means, "GOP Picks Conservative Christian, Anti-Establishment Candidate." Sounds good to me.

President Trump and the NFL: What Do We Make of This Battle?

Earlier in the week, the president had referred to NFL players who knelt in protest during the national anthem as "SOB's" who should be fired. NFL owners expressed their solidarity with the protesters and their disappointment with President Trump. Is there a right and wrong in all this?

Jesus Smashes the Gospel of Self-Esteem

One of the cruelest things we can do during a time of great human suffering is to suggest that those who are the most severely afflicted must be worse than everyone else. "Those wicked sinners got what they deserve in that hurricane," we say glibly, little knowing that we condemn ourselves in the process.

No, God Did Not Prescribe the Use of Cannabis in the Bible

Just when you think you've heard it all, a pastor calls your radio show asking how to respond to a congregant who claims that cannabis was sanctioned by God in the Torah.

The Simple Truth That Can End Abortion

A radio host in Detroit told me he was shocked one day when a caller referred to his child as a "carbon unit." Yes, a carbon unit. That's how a dad talked about his own kid. But this is not much different than referring to a baby in the womb as a "mass of cells."

Hearing God's Voice in the Midst of the Storm

These storms remind us of our frailty, of our weakness, of our helplessness, of our need. We can send satellites to Mars and build enough nuclear weapons to blow up the earth. And we can design robots and discover the meaning of DNA. Yet we cannot stop the wind and the rain and the fire. We cower before Mother Nature, recognizing our fate is not in our hands.

Actually, It's the Religious Left That's Dying

In reality, it is the religious left that is dying, while those who uphold Scripture are seeing blessing and increase around the globe. Out of the 100 largest churches in America, how many are conservative? The vast majority, at the least.

Hurricanes, Solar Eclipses, and Divine Judgment

In the course of one short week, America witnessed an extremely unique solar eclipse and then watched the state of Texas get hit with a catastrophic hurricane. Is God trying to get our attention, or is it foolish (and even dangerous) to speculate like this?

The Leftwing Media's Dangerous and Divisive Lie

Something very ugly is happening in America, something dangerous, divisive, and destructive. The leftwing media is adding fuel to this fire by peddling a very dangerous lie, one that equates the vast majority of Trump supporters with Nazis and White Supremacists. Liberal campuses are doing their part as well, declaring war on whiteness itself.
