Let the Exodus Begin…

August 31st, 2006 | by American Vision

Less than a year ago, I wrote an article called "No Fundamental Right" about a ruling made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California. In case that wasn't enough of a jolt to wake up California's (and the rest of the country's) Christians regarding government education, here's yet another shot. On Monday, August 28, Governor Schwarzenegger signed SB 1441 into law and it has been virtually ignored by major media outlets. SB 1441 "requires 'any program or activity that…receives any financial assistance from the state' to support transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality or lose state funding

Katrina a Year Later

The blame game will continue as politicians and political action groups jockey for position and funding for the upcoming elections in 2006 and 2008. Acts of heroism, self-sacrifice, and just plain hard work will be rightly honored. Religious organizations will gain new respect from the people being ministered to in both body and spirit

The Scourge of Dr. Strangelove Democracy

August 29th, 2006 | by Gary DeMar

The talk from both ends of the political spectrum is that "democracy" will cure the ills of Iraq, Iran, and the surrounding Muslim nations. What if the "liberated" people of Iraq, with their newly acquired right to vote, decide that they want a Taliban-style social and political system whose goal is to defeat the infidel West and impose Sharia law on all Muslims

“Social and Emotional” Stories for Children

August 28th, 2006 | by American Vision

In an editorial posted on August 16[1], Shriver and Weissberg weighed in on what they perceive as lacking in the "No Child Left Behind" program. They believe that academic concerns are only half of the educational equation; "social and emotional learning" also needs to be addressed. But, what exactly is meant by this phrase, and why is it necessary

Relying on Saul’s Armor

August 25th, 2006 | by Gary DeMar

Rome saw the connection between religion and the social order, and Christianity posed a threat to the old-time Roman religion because it did not make politics the sole agent of change. Israel's past, however, was replete with visions of political salvation. Early in her history, God allowed Israel to experience what it would be like in a wholesale rejection of Jehovah (1 Sam. 8)

Choosing Sides This Side of Heaven

Two opinions vie for our attention in current Christian thinking regarding the legitimacy of social involvement and kingdom demonstration this side of heaven

The Assurance of Things Hoped For

August 23rd, 2006 | by Gary DeMar

The Christian is assured of the future. He does not have to concern himself with eschatological speculations. The "times and epochs" are God's business (Acts 1:7). They are set by His sovereign will

Can America Be Saved?

August 22nd, 2006 | by Gary DeMar

Is it possible to change a society? Has there ever been a time in history when progress could be measured against the spiritual and cultural decay of a previous era? When the church suffers a setback after a period of progress, is this a sign of the end, or does the possibility exist that God will graciously redeem and restore His people

Everyone is Religious

August 21st, 2006 | by Gary DeMar

A letter to the editor that appeared in the August 18, 2006 issue of USA Today begins with, "I don't care how any god stands on abortion, as I don't believe in any god." The strident confession was in response to the article "Where does God stand on abortion?" that appeared in the August 14th issue

The Eschatology of Islam

August 18th, 2006 | by American Vision

Europe is quickly becoming Muslim. Conservative estimates predict that "Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century." Less optimistic estimates have this happening much sooner. France has had its troubles with young, anxious and unemployed Muslims. More recently, England has found itself in the middle of a terror scheme to explode trans-Atlantic planes
