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
Michael Avenatti has been charged with domestic violence. Avenatti denied the charges. “I want to be clear: I DID NOT commit domestic violence nor have I ever committed domestic violence. I did not strike any woman nor have I ever. I did not strike my ex-wife in the face nor did
We saw in my previous article about the serpent and pigeon “sign” that it doesn’t have any biblical support. Anyone can attach end-time significance to an event when it doesn’t have a biblical reference point. For example, best-selling books by Michael Drosnin touting a “Bible Code” were popular some years
Several posts on Facebook are asking this question: Should pastors address politics from the pulpit? I don’t understand why this question keeps getting asked. If the Bible addresses politics (or anything else), then pastors must address politics and anything else the Bible addresses. It’s that simple. Joel McDurmon, President of
Pastor Andy Stanley is at it again. He seems to have a problem with God’s law, specifically, the Ten Commandments: “You’ve heard the story before: A group of Christians puts up a monument of the Ten Commandments in a public space or on government property,” begins Stanley in his article
“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
The women of The View discussed abortion. It looked like the so-called pro-life Democrat, Sunny Hostin, might actually take an anti-abortion position. While claiming that Democrats should take the moral high ground against Republicans because “the most important things to [Jesus] were justice and mercy, so real biblical sort of
Liberals and conservatives are using the Bible to defend their versions of immigration. I’m glad the Left is using the Bible. It’s too bad they don’t appeal to the Bible on issues like abortion and same-sex sexuality. While we can derive moral principles related to how to treat people who
When former President Jimmy Carter was asked about same-sex marriage, he replied, “It’s no problem with me. I think everybody should have a right to get married regardless of their sex.” Of course, everyone should have the right to marry “regardless of their sex.” What’s at issue is if it’s
“Then 3,000 men of Judah went down to the cleft of the rock of Etam and said to Samson, ‘Do you not know that the Philistines are rulers over us?’” (Judges 15:11). You’re a “fake Christian” if you vote. That’s the opinion of a post I read on Facebook. She
The hypocrisy of the Left is astounding. The Bible has now become the favorite go-to source for ethics. Who would have thought that such a thing could happen? Jesus had a lot to say about hypocrisy. Here’s an example: Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: “The
Don’t think that every minister of a church knows what God’s Word says on a topic and how to rightly interpret what it says. There are numerous “false shepherds” (Ezek. 34) among our nation’s churches. The apostle Paul warned the elders in Ephesus about them: I know that after my
The Pope is said to come out defending homosexuality. Supposedly, in a private conversion with Juan Carlos Cruz, the Pope told the main whistleblower in Chile’s clerical sex abuse and cover-up scandal, “Look Juan Carlos, the pope loves you this way. God made you like this and he loves you,”
Every Christmas, liberals who despise the Bible and its message about abortion, same-sex sexuality, and the 8th commandment (“You shall not steal”) try to find something from the Bible to advance a liberal cause they claim is based on the Bible. For them, the Bible is selectively relevant and authoritative.
Socialism has been chosen by millennials as the best form of government.
Are Christians Partly to Blame for the Political Mess We’re In Because of Poor Theological Reasoning?
For nearly 40 years I have been writing and speaking on worldview issues from a biblical perspective that includes topics like politics, economics, ethics, and education. It’s been an uphill battle. Trying to convince Christians that they should get involved in these issues has gotten a lot of pushback, mostly
Charles Pierce writes for Esquire magazine. He’s a hardcore Leftist who hates Donald Trump and now Judge Roy Moore. Pierce has described Moore as “a lawless theocratic lunatic.” It’s true that Judge Moore “lost his job as chief justice of that state’s supreme court twice” by defying “the authority of
When we experience devastating natural disasters, people often ask, “Why”? Some blame or give credit to God. Others make political statements, like Jennifer Lawrence who said, “You’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard … not to feel Mother Nature’s rage or wrath.” There is no such thing as Mother Nature.
