The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics

When I became a Christian in 1973, I did not know much about the Bible. I went to a Catholic School through the fifth grade and church every Sunday, but I was only able to pick up some basic knowledge about Christmas and Easter. My first reading of the Bible was for knowledge. What does […]

Why Bother if the End is Near?

People have been trying to identify a particular antichrist for centuries. Christopher Hill’s book on the subject just deals with antichrist in seventeenth-century England. (There were many more through the centuries and in other countries.) The candidates included Protestants, the Pope, radical sects, bishops, the Crown, the “‘Establishment’ generally,” the universities, and “the Turk,” an […]

We Should be More Concerned About Deflated Freedoms than Deflated Footballs

Deflated footballs are in the news. In fact, the story is so popular that all the major networks led with the story even though almost nobody in the United States will be financially affected by the outcome. No one will lose any freedom, be forced to pay a tax, or have a pile of new […]

Our Government is Playing With Monopoly Money

The game of Monopoly debuted in 1935 during a time of financial recovery after a steep economic downturn called the Depression from which we’ve never really recovered since government intervention created the Depression and every economic downturn since. A similar game was developed Elizabeth (Lizzie) J. Magie Phillips in 1903. The Landlord's Game, as it […]

Pope Francis is Wrong about Money, Poverty, and Justice

Pope Francis has received numerous accolades from the faithful. One area where Pope Francis gets poor marks is in economics. It’s hard to take economic advice from someone who has taken a vow of poverty, never owned a business, and lives off the donations of people who have not taken a vow of poverty and […]

Are Pastors Finally Getting the Message about Politics?

In 2000, John MacArthur wrote a book with the title Why Government Can’t Save You. [1] When this book first appeared, I wrote that I didn’t know any Christians who believed government can or should save us. The subtitle led the reader to believe that getting involved politically was not an option for Christians. The […]

Top Ten Reasons Chief Justice Roberts' SCOTUS Obamacare Decision Is Bogus

A week and a day ago, the U.S. Supreme Court released the most notoriously harmful decision it has announced since "Lawrence v. Texas" in 2003. Like "Lawrence," it broke from the clear and plain text of the U.S. Constitution to give federal backing to a biblically immoral practice. It was somewhat amusing, however, last week [...]

Restoring Constitutional Confidence from "Despotic Branches" — The Court or the Constitution? Part 3

In the infamous Dred Scott case of 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court declared people imported from Africa to be sub-human and thus not worthy of freedom. This holding involved such a twisting of the text of the U.S. Constitution that a dissenter wrote: "[W]hen strict interpretation of the Constitution, according to fixed rules which govern […]

Movie Director Matthew Modine Says the Bible Teaches that Jesus was a “Commie”

“I think that you could define [Jesus] as a Utopian communist, where people would work together to solve our problems,” Modine told The Christian Post. I’m all for working together to solve our problems. But that’s not Communism. Communism is forcing people to work for the goals of the State, and the State is a […]

Are Lobbying, Rallying Voters, Organizing Protests, and Harnessing the Evangelical Movement UnChristian?

There is a reason we call the revelation given to us from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 the “Bible.” The Greek word biblos (βίβλος) — from which we get the English word Bible — means “book.” The Bible is one book even though it has 66 (39 + 27) individual parts. No single verse can […]

Was Jesus a Liberal?

The American Family Association is promoting a “Naughty or Nice?” Christmas campaign by listing the top retailers and how they recognize Christmas. There are three categories: 1. Companies that use the term "Christmas" on a regular basis are considered Christmas-friendly. 2. Companies that refer to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not […]
