Law and Disorder

Americans were shocked by the assault on the U. S. Capitol that took place on January 6th, ostensibly by Trump supporters. The US Capitol Police Chief, who has since resigned, stated: “The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, […]

A Worthy Goal for the New Year

Apparently fewer Americans are reading the Bible daily. A Barna study on behalf of the American Bible Society came out a few months ago (during the time of COVID-19) that showed a drop in the number of Americans who claim to read the Bible every day—from 14 percent to 9 percent. That seems strange since […]

Is Going to Church “High Risk, Low Reward?”

Some leftist government officials, in the name of trying to fight the spread of COVID-19, have come down hard on churches. For example, California Governor Gavin Newsom declared (5/7/20), “We’re looking at the science, epidemiology, looking again at frequency, duration, time, and looking at low risk-high reward, low risk-low reward.” [Emphasis added] He has defined […]

American History Down the Memory Hole?

Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving, but is this holiday becoming so politically incorrect that one day it will be doomed to be sent down the “memory hole”? There is a war on American history. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Antifa and other leftwing groups toppled more historical statues. Tyler O’Neil of PJ Media (11/28/20) describes the […]

Religious Freedom at Risk

400 years ago this month, a weary band of Christians from England came ashore in New England after a grueling 66-day voyage aboard the Mayflower. The Pilgrims came for one purpose, which they spelled out in writing: “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” It was all about religious freedom. […]

Election Integrity vs Election Theft

This is not a banana republic. This is the United States of America. Here we are on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Compact (November 11, 1620)—the document that initiated American democracy that culminated in the Constitution and our freedoms. And yet election integrity is at risk. How this is resolved may well determine what […]

Power Versus Empowerment

On the ballot this election season are two different visions for America: government power vs. empowerment of people. The choice is ultimately between politicians who seek to confiscate and redistribute wealth (creating a perpetual underclass that’s dependent on government) on the one hand, or those who empower the individual, on the other hand, enabling us […]

We Have Forgotten God

It’s a cliché to say that this is the most important election in our lifetime. But I really feel strongly that this is the most important election in our lifetime. There is so much at stake. Above all is the question of whether we will continue as one nation under God. Will we embrace America […]

Scapegoating “White Christians” for Climate Change

California, Oregon, and Washington State are burning—and it’s all the fault of “white Christians.” So says a professor at Oregon State University because “white Christians” are “science-deniers” who don’t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming. CampusReform.com reports (10/2/20) that Susan Shaw, professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies at Oregon State University claims (as do […]
