Good Riddance to the "Summer of Love"

When I was a kid, I loved summer and dreaded the fall, returning to school with playtime over. But this year I am glad to see summer is over. Phew. There are some parts of this country that I don’t even recognize anymore---that changed this summer. Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Kenosha, New York City. The Marxists […]

Answering a Christian Never Trumper

I received the following email. I’m sure there are other Christians who hold a similar view: From my perspective it is no less despicable for Christians to hitch their wagon to Donald Trump and his Republican enablers than it is to give ground to the Democrats and their agendas. Trump is the most vile, dishonest, unprincipled, […]

The “Good Old Days”—They Were Mostly Terrible

Yesterday I received Otto L. Bettmann’s book The Good Old Days—They Were Terrible (1974). When I wrote and produced the first volume of my three-book series God and Government, some of the images I used came from the famous Bettmann Archive collection of photographs and prints. Bettmann’s book is a collection of some of the […]

Black Sports Stars Squandering their Moral Capital

These "social conscience" sports stars have misdirected their financial and moral capital. Everyone knows that black-on-black crime is much more pervasive than white policemen killing black people, and that’s not something to be dismissed or made light of. Little or nothing is said or done about the daily murder rate among blacks in a city […]

Some Evangelicals are Urging Christians to Vote for Joe Biden

I was shocked to read that Tremper Longman III, former professor at Westminster Theological Seminary who presently serves Westmont College as a distinguished scholar of biblical studies is urging Christians to vote for the Biden-Harris presidential ticket and with it all the apparatus of the Democrat Party. He wrote the following to me after I […]

The Dangers of “Sexxx Ed”

Because of the virus, there is a current debate between opening up the schools or only using online instruction. Online instruction allows parents to hear what is being taught to their children. But that has some liberals up at arms because they want to teach a more radical curriculum than most parents would wish.  Perhaps […]

‘Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn’

In The Dark Knight (2008) Batman meets up with his most diabolical enemy—the Joker, played fiendishly by the late Heath Ledger. There’s nothing funny about Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker. It’s not Jack Nicholson’s clownish Joker. This Joker is psychotic. Or is he? Alfred warns Bruce Wayne that the Joker is no ordinary criminal. Neither […]

Does this Biblical Story Apply to Today’s Churches and Government Shutdowns?

There is always the danger of jurisdictional usurpation when civil government removes the jurisdictional boundaries and enters the domain of the Church. The Bible cites several examples of how the king sought to overrule the authority and jurisdiction of the Church. King Saul assumed the duties of the priests when he offered sacrifices. He stepped […]

Darwinism’s Dirty Little Secret

A review of Garry Wills’ Under God: Religion and American Politics carries the argument further. The reviewer is Mark A. Noll. There is much in Noll’s review that’s helpful, but his assessment of Wills’ evaluation of the 1925 Scope’s Trial was especially intriguing. Wills thinks that ... later anti-evolutionists [i.e., Creation Scientists], because they shifted […]

What I Owe Dr. D. James Kennedy

In December 1972 I entered a smoke-filled, beer and whiskey smelling bar in Oakland called the "Wooden Keg," a college enclave set in the middle of the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

Face Mask Laws are Designed to Make Us Compliant for More laws

Everywhere you go, people are dutifully wearing face masks. I was in Idaho over the weekend. I saw a woman wearing a face mask while riding a bike with not a soul anywhere near her. I’ve seen people wearing a face mask while driving. Joe Biden has called for all governors to mandate mask wearing […]

What Atheists Refuse to Admit

All worldviews are by definition belief systems, even atheism. Since we are all limited in knowledge and restrained by our inability to be everywhere (omnipresence) and know everything (omniscience), an atheist puts forth his claim that God does not exist in terms of a faith commitment. When the late Carl Sagan wrote “The cosmos is […]
