Scientists Say It. We’re Forced to Believe It. That Settles It.

Scientists Say It. We’re Forced to Believe It. That Settles It.

“The first to plead his case seems right, Until another comes and examines him” (Prov. 18:17). Is there such a thing as “science”? There isn’t. Science is not a thing like a shovel used for digging, a microscope for viewing what can’t be seen with the naked eye, or a gun to send a projectile through the air. To “follow the science” means to follow the opinions, theories, and conclusions of people [...]

Stolen Capital and Loor.tv

Christianity built the modern world. From science to music to art and architecture, the Christian worldview has influenced and informed all the “modern” technology and way of life that we (too often) take for granted. Dr. Greg Bahnsen was known for his phrase “stolen capital.” By this he meant that anti-Christian worldviews take what they like and enjoy from the Christian w [...]

Telling Better Stories

Telling Better Stories

Movies are a self-contained world. The writers and producers make the rules and the circumstances for the worlds they create. Most often though, films use the assumed order of the natural world and don’t attempt to re-write reality for the viewer. Films either reinforce the real world or they rebel against it. Either way, they provide a great way to think through worldview issues and their c [...]

What it Means to be a Christian in the World

What it Means to be a Christian in the World

Many Christians have trouble wrapping their heads around several difficult questions regarding how they should respond to what’s taking place in the world. It’s not because of a lack of intelligence; it’s a lack of teaching and a narrow focus of what it means to be a Christian in the world. The world has gotten more complicated. In one sense, it has passed us by. We have not kept up with what’s be [...]

There's No Fixing Stupid

There's No Fixing Stupid

The following Meme caught my attention. I guess its creator assumed that if you say the same thing 22 times it becomes true. This is the Cowardly Lion apologetic methodology: “I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks. I do, I do, I do, I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks, I do, I do, I do, I do!” Of course, it’s about abortion. Three objections should immediately jump out at you. [...]

The Self-Malediction of "In Gay We Trust"

The Self-Malediction of "In Gay We Trust"

Listen to the Gary DeMar Blogcast episode of this article You may have seen Megan Raponoe at the 2021 Met Gala celebrating “In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dressed in a red, white, and blue star-spangled suit. I take that back. You most likely did not see her. Just so you know, she was carrying a clutch purse that said: “In Gay We Trust” on the side. [...]

Scaring Liberals with "Hate Groups"

Scaring Liberals with "Hate Groups"

Gary responds to an email that he received from a critic. Claiming to be a “person of the church,” the individual expresses his dissatisfaction that organizations like American Vision are “allowed to exist.” Apparently freedom of speech only extends to particular “church persons” by his definition. The email is strangely similar to the sign someone posted on our [...]

Hate Notes on Our Dumpster

Hate Notes on Our Dumpster

Someone posted a sign (image above) on the American Vision dumpster declaring that Gary created a “hate group.” The sign was complete with QR codes for anyone wanting further reading during their trip to the trash bin. American Vision has been targeted and slandered by critics for years. This is to be expected when your message is antithetical to the Leftist agenda. Posting signs on du [...]

Wealth Redistribution by Majority Vote is Still Theft

Wealth Redistribution by Majority Vote is Still Theft

Biden and Co. want to steal more money in the form of taxes in the name of “the people.” The people will be fooled into believing that taxing the rich is for the greater good, and they have a right to use the power of government to reap the benefits of the immoral confiscation. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wore a dress with “Tax the Rich” emblazoned with large blood-red letters while she [...]

New York Times Admits Unborn Babies are Persons

New York Times Admits Unborn Babies are Persons

The New York Times made a surprising admission — life begins at conception. As you know by now, the Supreme Court’s 5–4 procedural ruling on the Texas Fetal Heartbeat law is driving people on the Left crazy! They are saying the dumbest things. Some pro-abortion women are calling on other pro-abortion women to deny sex to men until the ruling is rescinded. I’m OK with that. One of the biggest suppo [...]

Jesus as the Quintessential Laborer

Jesus as the Quintessential Laborer

The article below is taken from Jerry Bowyer’s Facebook page. Jerry is a perceptive writer on any number of topics. His analysis of biblical theology is first-rate. Instead of just reading Scripture, he looks for worldview connections that many Christians miss. His The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics is a book every Christian should read, not only [...]

Atheist ‘Chaplain’ Claims He Can be Good Without God

Atheist ‘Chaplain’ Claims He Can be Good Without God

Atheists claim they can be good without any belief in God. How do atheists account for good in a world of pure matter? Morality is not physical. Who’s to say that killing someone is morally wrong since atheists teach that animals — and evolutionists claim that humans are animals — evolved through actions like rape and violence? Keep in mind that “in the mid-1800s, Darwin showed that human beings w [...]

The 'Logic' of Unbelief and Where it Leads

The 'Logic' of Unbelief and Where it Leads

In the film, I, Robot (2004),[1] starring Will Smith as Detective Del Spooner, a supercomputer named VIKI[2] has designs on creating a robot-run world with humans under constant control. The computer-creature wants to control the creator based on a new set of laws and logic that will override the original human-designed “Three Laws” of protection.[3] It’s an old story with culture-destroying conse [...]

Karl Marx’s Favorite Quote

Karl Marx’s Favorite Quote

It is incredible how a failed theory — Marxism — continues to make inroads into the hearts and minds of millions of fellow Americans. A new poll out the other week found that for the first time, a majority of Democrats say they prefer socialism over capitalism. FoxBusiness.com reports: “A new Fox News poll showed that more Democrats favor socialism over capitalism, in a sharp reversal from just a [...]

What the Church Gave Up to be 'Relevant'

What the Church Gave Up to be 'Relevant'

John Webster (1610–1682), writing in 1654, stated, “But if man gave his assent unto, or believed the things of Christ … because they appear probable … to his reason, then would his faith be … upon the rotten basis of human authority.” When the full-orbed biblical worldview is given up for some claim to neutrality and unaided reason, the center collapses and the edifice falls i [...]

Simone Biles Tumbles Over Abortion 'Logic'

Simone Biles Tumbles Over Abortion 'Logic'

Simone Biles has made her views known on killing unborn babies, what euphemistically is called being “pro-choice.” She asked her Instagram followers to share “unpopular” opinions. Some brave soul responded with the opinion that “abortion is wrong,” and Biles responded. The following is from The Christian Post “I already know this is going to start the biggest argument & may even lose follower [...]

Charles Colson, Reconstructionism, and Biblical Law

Charles Colson, Reconstructionism, and Biblical Law

For years, prominent Christians have been critical of applying Old Testament law to the New Testament era even though Jesus (Mark 7:1–9) and the Apostle did (Rom. 13:8–10; 1 Cor 5:1–2; 9:9; 1 Tim. 1:6–10; 5:18). It’s not always clear how the OT law might apply in the New Testament, but there is no justification to say that NT writers don’t often apply it (2 Tim. 3:16–17). Charles Colson, who serve [...]

The Crying Need for Self-Control in Our Time

The Crying Need for Self-Control in Our Time

Virtually every day we see examples of men and women who are out of control in modern society. And they are making life miserable for many. For example, 51 people were shot in Chicago this last weekend—eight of them fatally. This is so common we almost grow callous to the news. People lack self-control. The Bible talks about the traits of a godly person who draws close to Christ and develops over [...]

Saving Our National Hyde

Saving Our National Hyde

Watch out whenever a politician says, “I’m a devout Catholic, but…” Whatever follows the “but” shows where their true allegiance lies. So it is with President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who are out of step with their Church’s teaching. Both have expressed a desire to see abortion rights extended, even up to the moment of birth—which is infanticide. Now they even want to repeal the H [...]

The 'Noble Lie' of Modern Ethics

The 'Noble Lie' of Modern Ethics

If with God all things are possible, then without Him all things are permissible. Few materialistic sophisticates want to believe that there is no justice and everything is permissible. They don’t want to believe in moral anarchy so they create a “moral fiction.” Loyal D. Rue, a professor of religion and philosophy at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, is honest enough to admit, given his materialis [...]
