Hollywood Was Not Always at War Against America, Traditional Faith, and Biblical Morality
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   12.16.23
This year is the 100th anniversary of the Hollywood sign. It used to say “Hollywoodland.”

But today the city is on hard times. A recent headline at deadline.com is, “Hollywood Jobs Down Nearly 20% This Year, & Not Just Because Of The Strikes, Study Says.”
The Constitution – Worth Celebrating, Not Trashing
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   09.16.23
September 17th each year marks the historic moment in “the year of our Lord 1787” when the U.S. Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. This was a great milestone in world history. More of the constitutions around the world have been patterned after our nation’s governing document than any other frame of government.
The Greatest Story Ever Distorted
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   08.08.23
A powerful story of forgiveness is found in John 8, involving Jesus and the woman caught in adultery, wherein He famously said, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” Her accusers quietly leave, one after another. Jesus then tells her that neither does He accuse her, “But go and sin no more”—a part often ignored today by our “tolerant” society.

But now, if the Chinese Communists have their way, the whole story of Jesus and the adulterous woman will be completely turned on its head.
Ashamed to be an American?
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   07.29.23
You may have missed it. Once again, some of the competitors on the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team refused to show respect for the United States during the opening ceremony of a World Cup game when the U.S. national anthem was played before the team played Vietnam. Five others did put their hands on their hearts, including three — Julie Ertz, Alyssa Naeher and Lindsey Horan.
The War on Fathers
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   07.15.23
A British cleric created a stir recently by accusing Jesus of teaching something wrong. Jesus told us that when we pray, we should say, “Our Father…” But the Archbishop of York told his fellow clergymen: “I know the word ‘father’...
Basic Fairness in Women’s Sports
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   04.28.23
In October of last year, in a “girls” high school volleyball game in North Carolina, a student was injured painfully. The ball was spiked by a member of the opposing team—only it wasn’t by a biological female but a biological male—a transgender player. That had to leave a mark.
Our Cultural Whitewashing
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   03.27.23
Not too long ago Mr. Potato Head was in trouble. In a day when even a sitting U.S. Supreme Court justice claims not to know how to define a woman, the hubris of calling any toy “Mr.” is just too much for our present culture.

Even Piers Morgan was upset about this tempest-in-a-teapot because the “Mr.” part of Mr. Potato Head was “upsetting a few wokies.”
Parents and Education
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   03.16.23
Parents will be held responsible by God for their children’s education, says the Bible. This was a view shared by the majority of America’s founders. But today there is a great defiance against this on the part of many in our educational establishment. Many leaders in the educational system seem to think they know better than the parents as to what should and should not be taught.
The Battle Over Free Speech
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   02.10.23
In a free society, why should only one political side dominate the media? Yet social media, the networks, the cable channels, newspapers, and satellite programming are all completely dominated by the left. Recently, we saw quite a kerfuffle when DirecTV, owned by giant AT&T, decided to ignominiously drop Newsmax-TV from their lineup.
No God, No Rights
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   02.04.23
When Vice President Kamala Harris gave a speech on the 50th anniversary of “Roe v. Wade” about a week ago, she infamously left out the Creator—when talking about our rights. One wag told me, “Hey, at least Kamala didn’t say, we ‘are created by … you know, the thing,’” as did her boss on the campaign trail.
Comments from Some Pro-Life Leaders on 50 years of “Roe v. Wade”
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   01.26.23
“Roe v. Wade” turned 50 years old on Sunday, January 22nd. This is the infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision that effectively gave us abortion on demand (when you add the impact of its companion decision of the same day, “Doe v. Bolton.”) Here are some comments from some pro-life leaders on the fallout from 50 years of “Roe.”
Killing Newborn Babies
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   01.14.23
America’s two founding documents have important bearing on the subject of abortion. The Declaration of Independence acknowledges that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. The first right enumerated is the “right to life.” The founders didn’t grant this right. They simply acknowledged it and spelled it out in our founding documents.
Why Do Some Climate Alarmists Want Us All Dead?
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   12.13.22
Why do some climate alarmists essentially wish us all dead? Because they think people are bad for the earth. They don’t believe in God. They claim to believe in science. But what is the evidence that people are supposedly bad for the earth?
Is It a Sin Not to Vote?
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   11.07.22
Founding father Samuel Adams once said, “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote…that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.”
Is the Church in America Dying, as Some Say?
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   10.03.22
Recent assessments declare or imply that the church in America is dying. One headline described it this way: “Axios begins countdown to death of Christianity.”
