The Violent History of Leftist Politics

The Violent History of Leftist Politics

Most people don’t realize it but today’s Leftist politics was birthed and incubated in violence against the system. The violent rhetoric and action of the 1960s and ending with the Kent State shootings in 1970, drove the radicals underground. They were the same radicals but they exchanged their bombs for college degrees, suits, and political ascendency. They became the system they said they despis [...]

Won't Know Much about History

Won't Know Much about History

The old song said, “Don’t Know Much About History.” But if Joe Biden gets his way, we could revise the title to “Won’t Know Much About History.” One of the last things outgoing-President Trump did was to sign an executive order on the 1776 Commission. It is geared toward teaching American school children about America’s true source of greatness. Yet one of the first things incoming-President Biden [...]

How to Sink the Deep State

How to Sink the Deep State

Christians are in a quandary as to what to do given the direction of the nation. It’s been staring us in the face for decades. An article on Christian Post by Livingstone Knowles reads, “A Christian parent’s case for public school education.” This is the wrong answer. It’s the major problem. A vast majority of Christians and conservatives are sending their children to the schools that are operated [...]

Christian Ministry Extols 'Biblical Values' of AOC's Democratic Socialism

Christian Ministry Extols 'Biblical Values' of AOC's Democratic Socialism

When George W. Bush was running for President, I debated Jim Wallis, who is the founder of Sojourners, a leftist ministry masquerading as a Christian ministry. I don’t remember everything about our debate, but the one thing I do remember is that he could not answer this one question I asked: You mention that numerous places in the Bible address the poor. Can you supply one verse that states that c [...]

The Anti-Science Extremism of the Left

The Anti-Science Extremism of the Left

President Joe Biden nominated a man to be his assistant secretary of Health and Human Services who thinks, dresses, and acts like he’s a real woman. The party of science is willing to ignore science when it needs to cater to a voting contingency—the Alphabet People. When I mentioned the anti-absurdity of this nomination, someone posted the following in the name of science: “Transgender” occurs al [...]

10 Reasons why being Short, Black, Female, Pretty, and Athletic are Examples of ‘Privilege’

10 Reasons why being Short, Black, Female, Pretty, and Athletic are Examples of ‘Privilege’

Liberals have developed dozens of terms to position their ideological brand and subvert their ideological enemies. Here are more than 20 of them: Tolerance, choice, safe space, micro-aggression, gender fluidity, gender reassignment, multiculturalism, diversity, fairness, inclusion, empowerment, global cooling, global warming, climate change, climate change deniers, hate speech, dreamers, paying y [...]

Minimum Wage Facts Democrats Don't Want You to Know

Minimum Wage Facts Democrats Don't Want You to Know

Biden and Co. want to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. First, like so much of government regulation, this is theft. Only governments (and the mafia) can force people to pay more money for work they don’t do. Second, it’s a job killer for young people trying to get work experience. If you listen to Democrats, most Americans are working at jobs for minimum wage pay. It’s not even close to the [...]

Poking Holes in the Prophetic USA Titanic

Poking Holes in the Prophetic USA Titanic

A popular metaphor for prophetic irrelevance is the sinking Titanic theme. “This metaphor was made famous, of course, by the 1950s radio preacher J. Vernon McGee, who warned his listeners with the rhetorical question, ‘Do you polish brass on a sinking ship?’ (Quoted in Gary North, Rapture Fever: Why Dispensationalism is Paralyzed (Tyler, TX: Institute for Christian Economics, 1993), 100.) Apparent [...]

To whom will we be in bondage?

To whom will we be in bondage?

The Bible is clear: God’s image-bearers can only attain lasting freedom when they are in bondage to Jesus Christ and His commandments which are not burdensome. We are bondservants by nature as creatures. The only question is: To whom will we be in bondage? To be outside of Christ is to be in slavery. The world today is outside of Christ, and never has slavery been more widespread or more specific. [...]

Is Earth just a Way Station to Heaven?

Is Earth just a Way Station to Heaven?

Most Christians have a limited view of what constitutes a biblical worldview. I suspect that many believe that the Christian’s earthly life is a holding pattern for heaven. Earth serves as a way station for true living after death. Is this why God created us? We’re born, we live out our lives the best we can, and then we prepare for heaven. In the interim, the Christian’s goal is to evangelize the [...]

Big Tech as Saviors: What Could Go Wrong?

Big Tech as Saviors: What Could Go Wrong?

As I was making my way through the channels to watch an episode of King of the Hill, I stopped on a channel that was showing the film I, Robot (2004). One of my favorite scenes was about to come on—Dr. Calvin’s exchange with V.I.K.I., the supercomputer that runs every other computer and all the robots in this futuristic dystopian world. V.I.K.I. is an acronym for Virtual Interactive Kinetic Intell [...]

Commenting on Amillennialism

Commenting on Amillennialism

I came across the following post on Facebook: “Prof. D. J. Engelsma gives a devastating rebuke to the Postmil notion of ‘Christianizing the world.’” The poster asked for comments. Here was my first comment: “David Engelsma is fixated on the common grace argument. That’s a Christian Reformed Church amillennial problem. Engelsma uses almost no Scripture. His eschatology is closer to dispensationalis [...]

The Great Tribulation of Ezekiel 5

The Great Tribulation of Ezekiel 5

God tells Israel that He will not bring another calamity on Jerusalem like the one He brought in Ezekiel’s day: “And because of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have not done, and the like of which I will never do again” (Ezek. 5:9). One commentator who believes that there is yet to be a future Great Tribulation to surpass all the tribulations brought upon Israel writes the follow [...]

Hyperbole, Preterism, and the Great Tribulation

Hyperbole, Preterism, and the Great Tribulation

One of the stumbling blocks to a preterist interpretation of the Olivet Discourse is Jesus’ statement about the Great Tribulation “such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall” (Matt. 24:21). Critics of a preterist interpretation of the Olivet Discourse maintain that such a tribulation has never occurred even though Jesus made it clear that all the events He [...]

Beware of Romantic Revolutionaries

Beware of Romantic Revolutionaries

The reactions to the events since the November 3rd election have been mind boggling. Who could have thought that so much venom could be spewed by a major political party hell-bent on total destruction of its ideological rivals, a one-time competing political party that has lost what little courage it had to fight for ideals it claimed to have, and communication companies (one of the first areas to [...]

Was Preterism Invented by the Jesuits?

Was Preterism Invented by the Jesuits?

One of the arguments used against preterism is that it was developed by Spanish Jesuit Luis De Alcazar (1554–1613) who wrote a commentary titled Vestigio Arcani Sensus in Apocaplysi or Investigation of the Hidden Sense of the Apocalypse in which “he proposed that all of Revelation applied to the era of pagan Rome and the first six centuries of Christianity.” Here’s a typical example: “The Praeteri [...]

How Great is the Great Commission?

How Great is the Great Commission?

What was Adam and Eve’s original task? Was it to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth with people who would deny God and His ownership of and authority over everything? Not at all. Of course, the fall disturbed the original plan, but the plan has not changed. The world does not belong to God’s highest creation or the devil. In Matthew 28:18–20 Christ, after stating that He (not the church) [...]

Culture is Downstream from Worldview

Culture is Downstream from Worldview

Where many Christians are today in their worldview thinking can be traced back to some adverse theologizing. We did not get here overnight. Seemingly divergent theologies have created a downstream effect of cultural indifference in the name of biblical Christianity. The late Andrew Breitbart observed that “politics is downstream from culture.” Change the culture, change everything. Ignore a compre [...]

Modern Culture is Subservient to a Biblical Worldview

Modern Culture is Subservient to a Biblical Worldview

This article is a follow up to my article “The Cult of Never-Trump” which was an initial response to Michael Horton’s article “The Cult of Christian Trumpism.” Every movement, especially one that has 74 million people who voted for Trump, has some cultic elements. Leftists are nearly a full-fledged cult. I would include “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” cult. I don’t know if Horton is as critical [...]

You Can't Apply What You Don't Know

You Can't Apply What You Don't Know

Apparently fewer Americans are reading the Bible daily. A Barna study on behalf of the American Bible Society came out a few months ago (during the time of COVID-19) that showed a drop in the number of Americans who claim to read the Bible every day—from 14 percent to 9 percent. That seems strange since you would think that during the pandemic, when we have been forced to spend more time indoors, [...]
