It is always encouraging to see missionaries taking the Gospel to South America, Asia, Haiti, the Middle East, different jungles all around the world, and of course, Africa. However, it is always interesting to me that we so often fly over the obvious mission fields of our neighbors in order to get to these foreign […]
I want you to consider this quotation I crossed yesterday: Blacks are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime. Blacks, who make up only 1 percent of the population, account for 34 percent of drug dealers, 47 percent of robberies, 47 percent of illegal gambling, 82 percent of gangs, and 98 percent of pimps.

Conservatives consistently live a proper decorum; leftists do not.
At the conference last week one American Vision supporter commented to me how he appreciated our ministry because we apply the Bible to all areas of life. He lamented the fact that so many Christians past and future have neglected a biblical worldview to the detriment of family, church, and society.

We should have been at the forefront of that issue.”
A few years ago, I asked some fellow Black Christians a probing question: What guides your life decisions-your faith or your race? Most people immediately said faith. But when I probed more-asking about their social and political decisions-they weren’t so sure. For many Black Christians, answering that question honestly may mean admitting that racial considerations and our nation’s history of have as much or more influence as faith principles in their lives. Pastors and leaders who are not Black may not have considered this fact or its cause. But understanding this issue will help as they minister to multiracial audiences.
