Why Some Children Leave the Faith
By Israel Wayne   |   08.17.22
Over the years I have observed hundreds of Christian families who seemingly did all the right things in raising their children, yet one or more still walked away from the faith of their parents once they were old enough to make their own decisions.

People who have their children in this system, and many who work for it, are usually oblivious to the perils of such a monstrosity. Or they see the dangers but don’t know how to get out.

By Israel Wayne   |   08.31.20

Choosing the Gay Lifestyle Over Family and Christ
By Israel Wayne   |   07.23.20
This past week, a well-known Christian author and former editor for CCM Magazine posted on Facebook and Instagram that he is leaving his wife to pursue a homosexual lifestyle. The details of the story are all too common. Give it a month or two and we’ll see the same scenario play out again, only with different names and titles. Maybe next time it will be a pastor or a worship leader or some other Christian celebrity.

The Top 10 Utopian Myths
By Israel Wayne   |   12.28.18
Left-wing academics, Hollywood stars such as Meryl Streep, Joy Behar, Alec Baldwin and Democratic Socialists from Bernie Sanders to Bill and Hillary Clinton to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez all have one thing in common: they believe that government can be the salvation of society in part by mandating universal health-care coverage, a living wage, free university tuition and comprehensive criminal justice and immigration reform. Don't buy their Utopian lies!

Why Some Conservatives Don’t Like Social Justice
By Israel Wayne   |   07.31.18
When you look at the history of Christianity in the West, it is largely defined (despite popular anti-Christian myth to the contrary) by Christians promoting social justice and charity for the poor and underprivileged. No other social group has been responsible for more positive social reform and improvements for the underprivileged, sick and downtrodden than Christians.
