SCOTUS 2020-21 Term Preview
The U.S. Supreme Court fall term begins this month, and, as of now, it does not appear to be as action-packed for religious liberty as this past term. However, at least one important case is in the hopper, and several are in the pipeline.  And, of course, all is overshadowed by the presumed replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Race Is A Lie. Stop Believing It
In Genesis 1:27, we are told that “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him …” Moses is very clear. God did not say he created humanity and then divided us by categories.

Even During a National Medical Emergency, the Abortion Industry Still Thinks It’s “Essential”
As part of their COVID-19 response, the U.K. initially approved new measures to allow women to take the complete abortion pill regimen at home. Now, it appears that this measure has been reversed.

End-of-Year Matching Challenge Update
By David E. Smith   |   12.23.19
In 2020 we will have tremendous opportunities to take on, expose and challenge the radical anti-family agenda of left-wing lawmakers in Springfield and Washington D.C. This is not merely a political fight between the right and the left or between Republicans and Democrats. This is the cosmic conflict between good and evil that has existed since the beginning of time. As Christians, we must gird ourselves as for battle. We must be prepared and willing to boldly engage in the public square.
