Colleges like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton were once bastions of Christian orthodoxy. Consider the following: Harvard’s earliest motto was In Christi Gloriam, “For the Glory of Christ.” One of Harvard’s early seals (1692) contained the Latin phrase Veritas (Truth) Christo (for Christ) Et Ecclesiae (and the Church). A group of ministers, who
The other side finds a way to get its people involved, to raise money. Our side is thinking about something else. — James Dobson Some years ago, Druid Hills Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, Georgia, was dealing with the issue of homosexual clergy. The Evangelical Lutheran Church was wrestling with the
For decades pastors have been timid about preaching politics from the pulpit. The Old Testament prophets would have been stunned by such timidity. A good many modern-day churches believe that they have some very good biblical reasons for not touching on the subject of politics from the pulpit. Many believe
Who said the following? “I am a Christian, I am a Protestant, I am a Baptist … [and] my own personal religious faith . . . has developed out of my own personal experience in life as well…. [T]he tradition of which I’m a part recognizes the importance of personal
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:2-3) I followed David Horowitz on Chris Arnzen’s “Iron Sharpening Iron Show” on August 14,
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.
If Christians don’t engage the culture at every level — politics included — then they will be excluded from every area of life. Get busy now or forever hold your peace when the iron boot of the State and social forces stomp on your face forever.
Given an atheistic or even an agnostic starting point, how can someone be outraged by evil? Without God, being outraged over the presence of evil is a subjective notion borrowed from the Christian worldview. “If God is nothing,” according to Russian novelist Feodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881), “everything is permitted; if God
“No.” For nearly all of those who read my articles, I suspect they would answer that way making this the shortest article I’ve ever written and published. Apparently, however, there are numerous people who claim to hate killing unborn babies and continue to support the Democrat Party. There are many
Leftists will do anything they can to destroy people who don’t agree with them. We see it every day with Donald Trump and his supporters. The BuzzFeed fake news report is the latest in a long line of attacks. The media immediately accepted it as the truth and began their
I read an interesting article on why the United States is no longer leading the world in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). It seems we’re having to import talent from China, Iran, and India. We put men on the moon in 1969 with mostly American engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.
Every Christmas there is the inevitable talk about a “war on Christmas.” Not all opposition comes from secularists, atheists, and Muslims. Some Christians believe the Bible does not set aside the birth of Jesus as a special calendar day to honor His birth. Such a celebration violates the “regulative principle
Christians Should be “Tortured” and “Persecuted” for their Faith, and for Good Measure, “Fed to the Lions.”
Since 1980 I have worked as a researcher and writer for American Vision (AV). Periodically AV gets some interesting correspondence from people who don’t like what we do. Most of the really bad stuff comes in the form of anonymous letters and emails. In the early days, people would leave
The following Thanksgiving Proclamations demonstrate that while Christianity was not the official religion of the newly formed United States, it was the fundamental belief system of the majority of people. Even those who weren’t professing Christians understood that without God the foundation of government would rest on the whims and
The new President of Brazil is upsetting the Leftist establishment. It’s comments like this from Jair Bolsonaro that is making Leftists go insane: God above everything. There is no such thing as this secular state. The state is Christian and the minority will have to change, if they can. The minorities
I’m in Guatemala today. I’ve been here since September 9th teaching and discussing every topic under the Sun with some very well-informed Christians. I have five talks to give today, so I’m going to take a breather from writing an article today and post some comments from David Bahnsen‘s article
The biggest censors in America are liberals. They refuse to have an open discussion of the bad science behind evolution and work tirelessly to scrub every vestige of the Bible’s influence on America’s founding from our nation’s textbooks. I’ve always maintained that the major source of America’s problems resides in
“In terms of Christian theory, privatization means that the grand, global umbrella of faith has shrunk to the size of a plastic rain hat. Total life norms have become part-time values. In terms of Christian practice, watch your average Christian business person or politician. Are there family prayers at home
