Pastor Doug Wilson: “Stop Groveling: Fight Like Hobbits”
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.27.20
Too many Christians falsely believe that the Bible teaches that we should always and in every context speak “nicely,” and by “nicely” they mean in ways that listeners don’t find objectionable. Too many Christians falsely believe that they are prohibited from being angry; or from using sarcasm, satire, or other strong language; or that they are prohibited from saying anything that offends people. Thankfully, we have Pastor Douglas Wilson to offer the church a much-needed corrective.
Giving Thanks in Everything!
By David E. Smith   |   11.26.20
Most Christians understand that we are to be a grateful people. This is attitude is especially easy to have on beautiful sunny days, when liberty abounds and the elections go our way, when we hit our stride at work, or when we are in good physical health. But even in times of challenge, sorrow and in the midst of trials, the Apostle Paul tells "be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be make known to God."
In the Name of God, Amen

November 11th marked the 400th anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower Compact. In the words of, the Mayflower Compact was “the first document to establish self-government in the New World.” Do you think the Pilgrims knew how significant...
Ten Things That Are True About God Today
By Jonathan Lewis   |   11.21.20
I recently wrote about the value of asking ourselves during challenging times the question “What is true about God right now?” With all that’s going on in our nation these days, perhaps now would be a good time to reflect...
Lessons From the Church Under Caesar
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   11.14.20
We have been blessed with many liberties here in America, many of them unknown throughout human history. And we should diligently guard those liberties... At the same time, as followers of Jesus, it’s easy for us to lose our perspective because of those very liberties and freedoms...
God, the Elections, and 4-D Chess
As a boy, I remember “watching” the epic chess battle between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer. It was aired on channel 13, the PBS station in New York, and a bell would ring, announcing the latest move. This, in turn,...
Let the Earth Rejoice
By Jonathan Lewis   |   11.05.20
Regardless of the outcome of our national election for POTUS, there are going to be some Americans who are elated, some who are in despair, and some who are just glad it’s all over. Likewise, there will be some who believe America is on the right track, some who believe we’re headed straight toward ruin, and some who will say “let’s wait and see.”
Election Day Prayers
By David E. Smith   |   11.03.20
We know you have likely been reminded multiple times over the past several weeks of the importance of this election and your participation in our government "of the people, by the people and for the people." Thank you for your patience with these repetitive messages! Soon, the opportunity to vote in this election will be over. The messaging will stop. The decisions will have been made.
God’s Word, Politics, and Discernment
Present-day political races are not about being a Democrat or a Republican.  It’s not about left or right.  It’s not about conservative or liberal.  And it’s not about being racist or not racist. 

It’s about good or evil.  It’s about what is right or what is wrong.  It’s about what lines up most closely to the Word of God or what in greatest measure goes against the Word of God.
“How Then Shall We Live?”
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   10.29.20
For those skeptical about what Christians have been saying would happen if the nation continued mocking God and Christianity, are you still doubting? Do I have to point out the horrific violence and hatred spewing forth from across the cultural...
The Public Square: A Biblical View
By David E. Smith   |   10.28.20
It’s undeniable. History shows a definite pattern of positive Christian influence on secular governments. The influence of Christians, both individuals and groups, has led to the abolition of slavery, polygamy, human sacrifice, and infanticide, as exemplified by the prohibition of abortion in the Roman Empire. Christian influence has led to a greater valuation of human rights, freedom of religion, and the concept of equality before the law. Even the acceptance of the right of an individual to own property is indebted to Christian influence.
Vital & Timely Sermon: Christians in America
By Laurie Higgins   |   10.27.20
Pastor Johnson of Gospel Fellowship Church in Wheaton recently preached a powerful sermon for such a time as this titled “Christians in America: Persevering Faithfully (Part 1)” regarding the blessing of self-government and how Christians should steward that blessing today.  He makes clear that through the promotion of abortion, homosexuality, riots, and gubernatorial abuse of power, we are living in a time in which evil is celebrated as good. Pastor Johnson’s sermon is exactly the kind of sermon for which Christians all across the country pray their pastors and priests will preach.
Our Duty to Influence Politics and Public Policy
By David E. Smith   |   10.24.20
If Christians do not speak publicly about moral and ethical issues facing a nation, where will our political leaders find moral guidance? Without Biblically informed Christian influence, government officials will have no clear moral compass. Think about all the issues that come up in our legislatures and/or government bureaucracies that are issues of moral right wrong.
Extra Chromosomes Add Extra Radiance
October is Down Syndrome awareness month. I know there are a lot of things to be aware of, especially in our hyper-connected society, but for me and my family, awareness of Down Syndrome is unavoidable. Almost a year ago, my youngest brother was born. His name is Owen, and he has Down Syndrome.
