Blessings not realized

It is widely believed that the Book of Revelation is confusing, not understandable, and divisive. As a result, it is seldom taught from America’s pulpits. It should be noted that prophecies account More »

The new anti-ethics

Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. More »

Fear of man

All throughout history terrorists of many nationalities and many religious backgrounds have used fear to overcome those they seek to annihilate. In the 20th century the images of German concentration camps reeked with fear so palatable that it can still be felt in decades old film clips. Unfortunately, the inhumanity of man against man is nothing new. As long as man occupies this earth, you can be sure that those seeking to conquer others through persecution and terror will sometimes be victorious.

Michael Gungor: Jesus lied

Jesus Christ rebuked a hypocrite above all things.

Again a popular “Christian celebrity” said something outrageous about the Bible and the Christian belief system. Michael Gungor, contemporary Christian music artist, actually says the first eleven chapters of Genesis are poetry, not true narrative. But yesterday a prominent Creation apologist talked back to him.

Creation: clash of theories

The creation science movement has not been able to speak with one voice for years. And now we know why. Less than two weeks ago, a bold commentator broke decades of unproductive silence on the real issue. One man, among all creation scientists, has a unified and comprehensive theory of the Global Flood. That man is Walter T. Brown Jr., and that theory is the Hydroplate Theory. Now we know the real reason why the larger creation movement rejected it out-of-hand. And the grounds were not scientific, and still aren’t.

Christianity in class

The debate on Christianity in class has reached the ultimate irony. Those who object to it, forget one thing: you cannot keep Christianity out of class and still stay historically accurate. Don’t the opponents know that? Or do they?

Call it A Tale of Two Leaders. Though one leads and the other doesn’t. America has a de facto President who refuses to lead. In fact he humiliated his country in the worst way short of a military defeat. In contrast, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has a real leader. This leader recognizes evil as it is, and does not fear to declare war against it.

Jihad: Obama a recruiter?

By now everyone knows: as many as 300 Americans are, as the Constitution would put it, “levying war against the United States.” The Arabic, or at least Muslim, word is jihad. The Latinate word, and the Constitutional word, is treason. Now we must ask why. Why should so many young men go to the Middle East to wage jihad, against the United States or any other country? That question might have as many answers as the countries they come from. But the American answer is all too clear.

Oathbreakers

The Constitution is not dead

Our Constitution is clear about what the federal government can and cannot do. Article 1, Section 8i, specifically defines the enumerated powers of the federal government. The rest of the Constitution was designed to keep tight reins on government and to lay out with great specificity what the powers are of each branch of government; how our representatives are to be elected; their qualifications; and a whole range of other operating procedures within our government. Our Founders did this because they understood the propensity of all governments and the people that run them to become power-crazed resulting in the continuous degeneration of the liberties of their citizens. They also had the foresight to include 10 amendments to the Constitution that protected the rights of our citizens that they deemed extraordinarily important, and which our government was to both protect and not infringe upon; hence we call these amendments our Bill of Rights.

IRS scandal: e-mails do exist

The IRS scandal made the news again yesterday. Now the IRS admits the “missing” e-mails still exist, and Lois Lerner did not lose them forever as she said. But the IRS now makes another excuse for not giving those e-mails to a judge. And as ever, no one looks at the worst part of the IRS scandal: whether any branch of government can investigate itself.
