A recent headline from a Savannah local paper proclaims, “Experts say homeschooling ripe for abuse; law changes considered after two Effingham children found buried.” What it doesn’t tell you, however, makes it clear the “experts” are being dishonest in blaming homeschooling, and there is an obvious agenda behind this biased reporting. A whole ream of […]
Joe Salant, our narrator, just posted a screenshot from his reading of Chapter 9, “A Heritage of Lies,” from The Problem of Slavery in Christian America, with the suggestion that reading it would be a good way to upset a nice Saturday afternoon, “getting angry.” Dustin Ranem, senior editor at New City Times and co-owner […]
We’ve all seen this. You notice a Facebook post or news headline about a man being gunned down by police. The testimony is that he was made to crawl like a dog and that he was unarmed. Or perhaps the testimony was that his hands were in the air. Of course, many will want to […]
Over the last few days both Toby Sumpter (pastor of Trinity Reformed Church in Moscow, ID) and Douglas Wilson (pastor Christ Church of Moscow, ID) have responded to Joel McDurmon’s and my critique of Wilson’s comments on incrementalism and abolitionism. For the record, the link to the podcast in which Douglas made comments about abolitionism […]
The Positive Obligation of The Church The Church has a great obligation. All Image Bearers of God bear a responsibility to obey both the positive and negative aspects of God’s Law. The negative aspects of God’s Law are the prohibitions. The “shall nots.” The positive aspects of God’s Law are the commands from God explicitly […]
Have you ever heard a parent tell a child, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out”? We hear it many times, but probably don’t stop to think of the spirit of such a comment and what it means for our society. Even though we usually consider such a statement as […]
The Injustice We have lived for so long in a society that calls being locked in a cage for a period of time “justice” that it would be rocket science for many to think of any another form of punishment. Sadly, many will protest—“No justice, No peace”—when a crime is committed, yet the same people […]
The Freedom From Religion Foundation pressured Kentucky’s Breathitt County School District to remove a copy of the Ten Commandments that had been posted in the school for years. The FFRF said it had received complaints about the displays. This complaint thing seems to work only one way. What if a group of parents complained that […]
The mainstream media have been relatively silent in reporting on abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell who was really involved in Nazi-style executions of live babies: “In Gosnell’s clinic police found severed baby feet of various sizes kept in see-through containers and bodies of babies in a freezer and in the basement. The upper spinal cords of […]
For decades we have been hearing from the homosexual community that anybody who is anybody was probably a homosexual – from Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci to T.E. Lawrence and John Maynard Keynes. (It was Keynes who said, “In the long run we are all dead.”) Added to the wall of homosexual fame is the […]
The verdict in the Casey Anthony trial caused quite a stir, many people criticizing the jury’s decision. Casey Anthony was on trial for murder and if convicted, would have received the death penalty. Did the jurors make the right decision? Watch this edition of Vantage Point for a biblical look at this issue.
My daughter-in-law’s mother teaches orchestra at a local public school. One day, as she was going down the stairs, she slipped and fell and received a sever shoulder injury that required surgery. She could have been killed. It turns out that a student had squirted baby oil on the steps. The administration did very little […]
It’s only been recently that biblical law has been viewed as non-applicational to contemporary society, by non-Christians and Christians alike. The claim is made that there are so many laws in the Old Testament that would be impossible to apply today. Laws against murder and theft are viewed as self-evident that everyone agrees on. Certainly […]
Gary continues yesterday’s topic with a more detailed look at Exodus 21:22 and what it teaches regarding abortion.
For a couple of years, a fellow by the name of Fred Weiss has been sending me noxious emails. I have about 500 of them. He also goes by the name “Boris” and “Boris & Natasha.” No matter what counter evidence is put before him, he dismisses it because, of course, he has an atheistic […]
American Vision received an email from a Christian who claims that it is unloving to condemn the homosexual lifestyle. His arguments are based on faulty science, bad logic, and a misreading of the Bible. His comments are in bold, my comments follow:
Scientists say homosexuality is genetic, but God otherwise. Should criminals be exempted from justice because they are genetically geared to commit theft, murder, and the like? Gary sheds light on how God’s Word would handle homosexual ethics.
Dragnet was one of the most popular shows. on radio and television. A “dragnet” refers to the coordinated measures for apprehending criminals or suspects. “Dragnet had its origins in Webb’s small role as a police forensic scientist in the 1948 film, He Walked by Night, inspired by the actual murder of California Highway Patrol officer […]
