What’s Going On In America…

 What’s going on in America is actually the result of what has GONE on in America! Stay with me and I think you’ll understand what I mean. More and more the question is being asked, “what’s going on in America?” “Why does America seem to be spinning out of control?” The answer is not as simple […]

The Death of Christianity?

That is what some major newspapers like the New York Times are suggesting based on a recent survey by the Pew Research Center which reported that 71% of American adults identified as Christians in 2014 compared to 79% in 2007 in a similar Pew survey. But what is really going on? First, if anyone really […]

A Message From 1984…

In 1984 I read a book in which the author stated the following… “Pursuing freedom in an absolute sense disrupts the balance between freedom and form. A free culture relies on the form given it by its laws and morality to maintain order. Societies that lose this delicate balance may for a time become chaotic, […]

Church and State Myths…

We are often told today that The Church and State are to operate in separate realms under what is referred to as the “doctrine of separation.” This concept has so proliferated modern society that most Americans have come to believe a couple of misrepresented ideas that are worth correcting. Since every week we are hearing […]

UPDATE… A REVERSAL COMING

In an exclusive interview with Christianity Today this  week, Richard Stearns the current president of World Vision announced […]

The God Option…

The United States Air Force Academy recently decided to make the phrase “so help me God” in the Academy’s cadet oath optional. This came in response to the efforts of atheist Mickey Weinstein and his organization; the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, after the group filed a complaint. The long-standing cadet oath says: “We will not […]

Go Vote…

This will be the 14th presidential election in my lifetime and I believe that it may be the most important one to date.

The Assault Continues…

On the right to express our faith in public. As Charles Colson put it, the attack is actually relentless. Consider a few examples that have occurred in the last couple of weeks. Catholic Charities of Illinois have been forced to close. The reason? They refused to comply with an Illinois state law regarding same-sex civil […]

Who Will Be That One…

As a teenager I loved to read (and still do) the biographies of great men and women of God. It was during those teenage years that I read my first biography on D.L. Moody and came across a line that has stuck in my memory ever since. Actually Henry Varley, the British evangelist, uttered the […]
