I was searching for something on my computer and I came across a PowerPoint presentation I put together for myself and for a group of second-year law students that they got on a CD. It consists of a collection of material that I’ve saved over the years. It’s not meant to be a comprehensive study […]
While the Cathedral has no religious significance in and of itself since God does not dwell in a man-made structure, it acts as a symbol. To burn it is to strike at God with unrelenting fury, a sort of man-made hell.
The reasons Christians should be involved in politics is to lessen the impact that civil government has on so many areas of life. You can’t do that without getting involved in politics. While many Christians don’t believe in being involved in politics, politics is always involved in them.
François-Marie Arouet (1694–1778), known by his pen-name, Voltaire, is reported to have said, “I don’t believe in God, but I hope my valet does so he won’t steal my spoons.” For many atheists, holding to religious tenets, at least for other people, is practical because it keeps them from stealing their stuff. In the spirit […]
What is the ‘Deep State’? It’s said to be a government within a government, not elected, but just there, always writing rules, subverting criticism, and never letting the opposition gain a foothold. A president is restricted to eight-years. Members of Congress can be thrown out of office at the ballot box every two (House) and […]
Thomas Jefferson, serving as the ambassador to France, and John Adams, ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdrahaman, the Dey of Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain, attempting to negotiate a peace treaty with the Islamic world of their time. Jefferson and Adams argued in vain that the United States was not at war […]
Ezekiel 38 and 39 has been interpreted in various ways over the centuries. The most popular view sees the prophecy as a depiction of a future battle that includes an alliance of mostly Islamic nations led by modern-day Russia in an attack on Israel.
As anyone who is familiar with Bible prophecy knows, Russia was the designated end-time bad guy throughout the last century. With the fall of the former Soviet Union, prophetic speculators have regrouped to paint a new end-time picture based on current headlines. The takeover of the American Embassy by a group of Islamic extremists during […]
“[P]rofessional God-slayer Richard Dawkins begrudgingly admitted that Christianity may actually be our best defense against aberrant forms of religion that threaten the world.” Here’s what he said: “There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major […]
William Cowper’s hymn “God moves in a Mysterious Way” is an apt description of what is happening in public (government) schools across our nation. One would have thought that tens of millions of Christian parents would have realized by now that the schools that propagandize their children six hours each day, five days each week, […]
The enemies of the truth are always awfully nice. Truth is the strong compost in which beauty may sometimes germinate. Christopher Morley (1890-1957) President Obama said the following during an Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House: “On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And […]
Some of the greatest civilizations that the world has ever known are now tourist attractions. Babylon is a dust bowl. There’s not even a hint that its Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, ever existed, so much so that “it has been suggested that the Hanging Gardens are […]
It wasn’t too long ago that John McCain referred to Senator Rand Paul, Senator Ted Cruz, and Rep. Justin Amash (all Republicans) as “wacko birds.” He later apologized. Do you want to hear something really “wacko”? Sen. McCain accused Fox News host Brian Kilmeade of being Islamaphobic because he said that Syrian opposition groups were […]
You will no doubt have heard about the brutal and atrocious killing of a soldier outside a British army base on Wednesday. According to witnesses, the two perpetrators used a car to run him over outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, before setting upon him with knives and meat cleavers and […]
Atheists Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris are often described as the “Unholy Trinity of Atheism.” When you add Daniel C. Dennett to the mix, the Unholy Trinity becomes the Four Horsemen of the New Atheism. Even in their atheism these atheists can’t escape religion. They are defined by religion. Even the name ‘atheist’ […]
Once liberals define a word or give meaning to a political verbal weapon like hate speech, they own it. Abortion is about being “pro-choice” not pro-abortion. Homosexuality is not about sexual relations with people of the same sex; it’s about “gay pride,” whatever that means. And that’s the point. Ambiguity is the name of the […]
As we reflect on the anniversary of 9/11, I think it important for us to reflect on the contrast between how the genuine Christian faith is advanced with how the religion of Islam is advanced. Robert Spencer is one of our nation’s most articulate and spot-on critics of Islamic extremism. He is the author of “The Truth About Muhammad,” “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades),” as well as other books on the relationship between Islam and terrorism. His more recent book, “Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t,” includes a short bio that informs readers that […]
On the eve of 39th anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade pro-abortion decision, the Obama administration has mandated that “many church-affiliated institutions will have to cover free birth control for employees.” This does not mean that Christians will have to get abortions. Keep this in mind as you read the rest of this article. […]
