Congresswomen Want Muslim American Heritage Month

Congresswomen Want Muslim American Heritage Month

“As we continue to see an uptick in anti-Muslim hate, it is important we recognize the resiliency and accomplishments of Muslim Americans with a formal resolution,” Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed. Reps. Omar and Rashida Tlaib, and other leftists want to designate July as Muslim American Heritage Month. President Obama claimed that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” [...]

"Nothing You Say Will Convince Me"

"Nothing You Say Will Convince Me"

In my previous article (“A Seismic Shift in Eschatology Has Begun”), the letter writer begs the question by assuming dispensationalism is true, biblically foundational, and has a long and respected historical pedigree. He doesn’t argue for these positions; he simply states them as fundamental, self-evident truths. His arguments, such as they are, are similar to those used by evolutionists, global [...]

A Seismic Shift in Eschatology Has Begun

A Seismic Shift in Eschatology Has Begun

Similar to the way there is a fundamental shift taking place in the realm of theology by a reconsideration of Calvinism,[1] a seismic shift is taking place in eschatology. Eschatology is the study of the “last things.” The more popular terminology is “Bible prophecy.” There are numerous schools of thought on the subject. The most popular version—dispensational premillennialism—teaches that certain [...]

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 [...]

The Stillbirth of Eschatology and Its Dangers

The Stillbirth of Eschatology and Its Dangers

Why is it that so much technological advancement developed in the Christian West? Consider a few examples: The first working telephone was invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell. The cumbersome device had no delivery system, wires, phones, or switching system. Who would you call? And yet today, we carry phones in our pockets and purses that are smaller than a deck of cards, need no wires or ope [...]

Fight, Laugh, Feast Conference

Fight, Laugh, Feast Conference

The second Fight, Laugh, Feast Conference will be held September 9–11 at the Farm Bureau Exposition Center in Lebanon, Tennessee, east of Nashville. Gary DeMar will be discussing the topic of “The Eschatology of Sex.“Also, American Vision will be having a large display of books — new and out of print — for sale. Sex is inherently political. What you do in the privacy of the bedroom nev [...]

More Reasons You Don’t Want CRT Taught

More Reasons You Don’t Want CRT Taught

Elle Reeve’s “special report” for CNN was a doozy of misinformation. One would think that a person who works at a high level for a world news network would know what she’s talking about. I suspect that many teachers teaching the CRT curriculum are equally ignorant. Reeve’s was asked this question by CNN’s Brianna Keilar: “Do these vocal opponents of critical race theory actually understand fully w [...]

Apologists for Communists

Apologists for Communists

As the Cuban crisis unfolds, we are seeing an unprecedented number of protesters. Some of these dissidents could lose their lives for their bravery. A friend of mine from church is from Cuba. Carlos was a political prisoner for 18 months in his home country. His crime? Trying to escape Cuba. Eventually, he did get to escape. I asked him about today’s protests. He said, “62 years later—this i [...]

Answering Fools According to Their Folly

Answering Fools According to Their Folly

The following is from the first chapter of Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen’s new book The Impossibility of the Contrary, a series of lectures that were given at one of American Vision’s Life Preparation Conferences in the 1990s. If you would like to be notified when this book will be available (they should be in our warehouse sometime next week), make sure you are signed up to receive emails from American Vis [...]

"Avoid such men as these..."

"Avoid such men as these..."

“Do not give your opponent any reason to reject your position other than the position itself” — Gary DeMar In the waning years of Israel’s Old Covenant system that was in the process of passing away (Heb. 8:13), Christians were being attacked on all sides. Some of the opposition was coming from the Roman government but most of it was brought on by “wolves” who had entered the flock of the New Cov [...]

You’re a White Supremacist If You Don’t Believe in Evolution

You’re a White Supremacist If You Don’t Believe in Evolution

The Political Left is all about redefinition. For example, Critical Race Theory (CRT) is said to be (and is) “an academic theory mostly taught at the grad-student level.” But CRT has evolved into something like Frankenstein’s monster that was pieced together from the dead. The latest example of CRT thinking is the claim that the “Denial of Evolution Is a Form of White Supremacy.” The author of the [...]

The Time for School Choice Is Past Due

The Time for School Choice Is Past Due

The following article is a good start in identifying the problem and calling for a solution. While school choice is far better than what we have today, most of the schools that parents would choose are still controlled by the government. The best school choice is to choose not to send your children to any government school. Schools run by churches that are empty six days a week, private schools ru [...]

Gay Agenda Goes Full Dominionist

Gay Agenda Goes Full Dominionist

Listen to the podcast about this topic. On July 4th, Hobby Lobby took out full-page ads in multiple newspapers featuring Bible verses “along with numerous, pro-Christian, pro-Bible quotes from our Founding Fathers and other key leaders in our history. According to a headline on the popular gay atheist blogsite, Joe My God, ‘Hobby Lobby Goes Full Dominionist in July 4th Ad.’” “Democratic legislator [...]

Do All to the Glory of God... but how?

Do All to the Glory of God... but how?

by John Livingston The Apostle Paul said, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). His command is comprehensive. His point was that, even in the very mundane things we do every day, we should be bound by the desire to glorify God. Our redemption in Jesus is total: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. [...]

Creeds, Confessions, and Eschatology

Creeds, Confessions, and Eschatology

A few years ago, a group of out-of-town American Vision supporters wanted to visit the church my wife and I attend and then have us over for dinner at a friend’s house. We often repeat the Apostles’ Creed or the Nicene Creed during the service as our Credo — “I believe.” We don’t know who composed the Apostles’ Creed or when it was written. Some historians place the writing around the 4th or 5th c [...]

A Frenchman's and a Supreme Court Justice’s Definition of ‘Christian America’

A Frenchman's and a Supreme Court Justice’s Definition of ‘Christian America’

Here’s a historical factoid about what our nation considered valuable at one time. How times have changed: After the attack on Pearl harbor, Secret Service Agent Harry Neal was tasked with transferring “priceless historical documents” to a secure facility away from Washington, D.C. After meeting with librarian Archibald MacLeish at the Library of Congress, Neal orchestrated the logistics of how t [...]

America's Christian Heritage: Fact or Fiction?

America's Christian Heritage: Fact or Fiction?

On July 4th of this year, Hobby Lobby ran newspaper ads that included the Bible verse “Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord” and was titled “One Nation Under God” and included numerous references of America’s religious and Christian influence. Hobby Lobby has been placing similar ads on US holidays since 1995. As usual, atheists went ballistic, especially the Freedom From Religion Foundatio [...]

Insane Arguments about our Nation’s History

Insane Arguments about our Nation’s History

In some previous articles (here and here), I pointed out some of the comments American Vision received in response to a promotional ad that we sent out on Facebook for the book The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. If these are real people and there are many more like them, we are in big trouble. Some of them have just a smidge of information wrapped in a [...]

Is Questioning and Challenging the President Wrong?

Is Questioning and Challenging the President Wrong?

Chris Matthews, who used to be on MSNBC on a show called “Hardball” that was softball when it came to questioning Democrats and Leftists (I repeat myself), made a statement about how President Obama should have been treated by then-presidential challenger Mitt Romney in their second debate. It was the fact that Romney challenged the President that led Matthews to go Gestapo on him: I don’t think [...]
