‘We Should all Have an Equal Share of Belongings’

My wife and I had some of our grandchildren over for a visit while their parents spent time together for a deserved night out. The children wanted to watch a movie, so I had them watch the animated version of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. It’s very good, even for very young children. You can watch […]

The Core Dynamic of Anti-Christian Ethics

While living on what the singing group The Temptations called this “ball of confusion” most every day, people hear the term “moral outrage” carelessly thrown around, usually in the context of moral mud fights broadcasted on both news and social media. The irony of those fights, however, is that even while people are fighting and […]

It’s the ‘Accounting For’ That Makes the Difference

Is God needed for morality to exist? Billboards have been plastered about claiming that God is not needed for non-believers to be moral. Atheists often respond by claiming, “I’m as moral as the next guy. I have a conscience.” These may be true. The issue is not whether atheists can do moral things, it’s how […]

Liberals, Atheists, and Leftists Say the Damnable Things

Kids Say the Darndest Things was a comedy series hosted by Bill Cosby from January 9, 1998 to June 23, 2000. The idea of the show stemmed from Art Linkletter’s radio show House Party and television series of the same name. “The show’s best-remembered segment was ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things,’ in which Linkletter interviewed schoolchildren between the ages […]

What Millennials Don’t Know About Socialism and Communism Will Hurt Them

“The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll…. The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.” (Washington Times). The most egregious political stupidity comes from people whose […]

Are We Following in the Steps of Pre-Nazi Germany?

We’ve been taught that fascism is a foreign-born ideology that spawned the political aspirations of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. In reality, fascism has a long history in America and has been resurrected by people who believe that power guided by good intentions can do no harm. They are ignorant of history and human nature.

Some Choice Socialism Quotations: Bad and Good

Socialism doesn’t work, so it’s surprising that some very intelligent people believe in it with a near religious fervor. Of course, it’s not about mental makeup but faith despite the evidence. What’s surprising is the number of successful people who believe in and advocate for socialism. For example, Roger Waters, the Pink Floyd co-founder is an advocate for […]

What Does the Bible Say about the End of the World?

When Christians hear the phrase the “end of the world,” most assume it’s a reference to a great end-time prophetic event like Armageddon, the Second Coming of Christ, or the cataclysmic end of heaven and earth as a prelude to a New Heavens and New Earth. Actually, the phrase “end of the world,” as in […]

Whoever Defines the Family Controls It

Two articles appeared some time ago about monkeys and their supposed similarity to humans. In the first article, we learned that when monkeys were given keyboards and computers, they made a mess. Based on testing the Infinite Monkey Theorem, researchers at Plymouth University in England reported that monkeys left alone with a computer attacked it and […]

Ruled by God’s Laws or Ruled by the Dictates of the State

Most people who have seen the film The Ten Commandments on television have never seen Cecil B. DeMille’s opening introduction. DeMille had something more in mind than just making a film about a religious figure from the Bible. He considered his production to be so important that he came out on stage to deliver a short […]

Promoting Fear, Not a Virus, is the Real Threat

In the first chapter of C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, Screwtape explains to Wormwood that there used to be a time when “argument was the way to” keep his Christian patient “out of the Enemy’s clutches.” Times and methods have changed: That might have been so if he had lived a few centuries earlier. At […]

John Piper, the Coronavirus, and the End Times

While the writer of the letter to the Hebrews says we should “have our senses trained” (5:14), the Bereans searched the Scriptures daily to assess whether what Paul was saying was true or not (Acts 17:11), and John says to “test the spirits, to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have […]
