Diane Feinstein Doubles Down on Her Discrimination Against Christians Holding Public Office
By Joshua Denton   |   09.20.17
After an embarrassing rant about Christianity somehow disqualifying an individual from public office and impying that a religious test should be implemented for those seeking to hold public office, California Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein is doubling down on her remarks.
Lack of Knowledge
By David E. Smith   |   09.16.17
In the fourth chapter of Hosea, the prophet delivers God’s charge against the nation of Israel. The Lord pronounces that there is “no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land.” However, what was present in the land...
Recent Barna Survey Shows Majority of Americans Rely on Prayer to God
By Joshua Denton   |   09.09.17
A survey conducted online between June 5-9, 2017 by the Barna group poll shows that many Americans still rely on prayer as a means to communicate with God. The study shows that prayer is the most common faith practice among adults with 79 percent of the population engaging in prayer at least once in the past three months. Here are some of the interesting things the study found...
Running With Purpose
By David E. Smith   |   09.04.17
Admittedly, I don’t know much about running, but I remember listening to an online sermon in which an important distinction was made between runners and Runners. The preacher made that point that runners enjoy going out for a jog now...
Old Testament Law & Shellfish
Ever have a conversation with someone about God’s view on a matter, such as homosexuality, abortion or sme-sex "marriage," and they bring up some wild response from the Old Testament law as a defense?  They say, “What about not eating shellfish?”  Or, “what about wearing mixed fabrics?” They dig up certain passages on restrictions on beard trimming, or keeping your hair at a certain length.  They do this to downgrade the validity of the Scriptures, but also to...
“The Harvest is Plentiful…”
I was in college, embarrassingly enough, when I crashed and burned in one of the most spectacular single-bicycle accidents never caught on camera. Pedaling along at full speed on my royal blue ten-speed Huffy with no particular place to go, I suddenly found myself hurtling over the handlebars through the summer air and face-planting squarely in the right lane of N. Robb Street.
A Biblical View of Climate Change
By David E. Smith   |   08.22.17
Last year I was at lunch with an evangelist. After the meal, he handed our waitress a Gospel tract. I wanted to reinforce his compassion, so I told the young lady that her relationship with God was the most important thing in the world. She responded, “Yeah, that and global warming!” She proceeded to tell us that she wakes up in fear of what may happen to the earth during her lifetime. I was shocked.
Christians Must Stand Against Racism and with Christ
By Jonathon Clay de Hale   |   08.17.17
In the wake of the violent confrontation and death in Charlottesville, Virginia, the response of the church seems curiously one-sided. For example, one of my friends, a pastor, expressed his sadness and anger about the events and that he was...
Conservatives and Christians, Do Not Be Duped By Cultural Marxism
By Tami Jackson   |   08.14.17
Virtually anyone over the age of 25 today has heard of Karl Marx and Marxism, though many remain ignorant of Marx’s history and the subsequent cultural ideology that emerged from aspects of his economic theories. Karl Marx was the grandson...
Rejection of God Leads to Rejection of Science (and Common Sense)
By David E. Smith   |   08.01.17
Christians who hold to historic and traditional teachings of the Bible believe that God created us from the beginning “male and female” (Genesis 5:2; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6). Biology and physiology empirically affirm that there are only two genders. Christians who hold to this theologically orthodox and scientific view believe that “gender-confirmation” surgery, hormone-blockers and cross-dressing damage humans.
Culture War Victory Still Possible for Conservatives
What we call the pro-family movement is a component of the larger conservative movement and deals with matters of sexuality and the natural family. Its American roots are in the cultural backlash to the Marxist revolution of the 1960s that turned family-centered society on its head and swapped the Judeo-Christian morality of our founding for Soviet-style “political correctness.”
What’s Your Primary Strategy?
What is your primary strategy for bringing about the kinds of changes you’re looking for in your church, community, family, or life? I think that is a question we should all be asking, as pastors, as business people, as parents, as citizens.
New Survey Shows We Are Approaching a Post-Christian America
By Joshua Denton   |   07.18.17
A recent study by Barna reveals the truth about what the spiritual climate in America is currently like. The study was conducted over 7 years, ending in 2016, and focuses on the most post-Christian cities in the US. According to...
From ‘Lassie to ‘Game of Thrones’: What Has Become of America?
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.15.17
America was very far from perfect in the early 1960s. In much of the nation segregation was the law of the land and women certainly had far less opportunities than men, just to mention two of society’s inequities. And I’m quite aware the first issue of Playboy, featuring Marilyn Monroe in the nude, was published in 1953. At the same time, there’s no denying that America back then was a far more innocent, family friendly country than it is today.
Silencing the Silencers
By Robert Knight   |   07.14.17
Frustrated by its inability to win elections, the left is attempting to silence opponents through intimidation, either in the streets or in the courts. The latest example is the hijacking of Guidestar USA by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Guidestar is a database of more than 2 million nonprofit and non-governmental (NGO) organizations. It's considered the foremost authority on nonprofits, and had a self-avowed reputation for "remaining neutral."
