Would Jesus Oppose Christians Challenging Supreme Court on Religious Freedom Issues?

Here we go again . . . another liberal trying to use the Bible to push an anti-Christian, pro-statist agenda. The latest attempt comes from Jay Michaelson who writes for the Daily Beast. A number of groups are challenging certain provisions of the Obamacare law that they believe are a

“Scholar of American Religion” Doesn’t Know Much about Christianity

In a USA Today article, Stephen Prothero writes that “Sanders, a secular Jew, is the most Christian candidate in this race.” Prothero self-identifies as a “scholar of American religion.” All that means is that he has a PhD from a secular institution, but it doesn’t guarantee that he really knows that

Pulitzer Prize Winner Kathleen Parker Said the Most Ignorant Thing About the Bible and Ted Cruz

Did you know that the Bible does not teach that Jesus rose from the dead? Did you know that “the body of Christ” always refers to the actual body of Jesus? Well, that’s what highly paid liberal Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker claimed in response to a

What to Say to People Who Don’t Like Trump’s Strong Language

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh yesterday when a young woman called in and asked Rush how to answer some of her family members who won’t vote for Donald Trump because of his “rough edges.” It was clear to me that this meant some of  the harsh things he’s been

Joseph and Mary were Neither Homeless Nor Refugees

The Christmas story has been turned into a political message about homelessness. Recently, liberals have claimed that when Mary and Joseph could not find a room in Bethlehem – you guessed it – it’s just like today’s refugee problem. Never let a contrived Bible story go to waste. The problem

Christian College Blasted for Putting Professor on Leave for Comment that Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God

All of a sudden liberals care about what goes on in Christian colleges. The latest attack on Christianity — not Islam for beheading Christians, raping Christians, burning down their churches, and selling Christians into slavery — is a disciplinary action by Wheaton College. The college is being attacked for putting Professor Larycia

Jesus, Guns, and Self-Defense: What Does the Bible Say?

Good Christian? Bad Christian? It all depends on who’s doing the evaluating. The reaction to Jerry Falwell Jr.’s comments on encouraging students at Liberty University to be armed in case there is an ISIS attack at the school has led to a great deal of theological and political angst. Brian

Is It Always Wrong to Discriminate?

We’re seeing a radical push by so-called Progressives to redefine human nature by an appeal to the God who created the natural world and all things in it. You may have seen this meme: When did using your religious beliefs to discriminate against others become a Christian value? Choose love.

Jimmy Carter Admits Jesus Does Not Support Same-Sex Marriage

Former president Jimmy Carter has admitted that there is not a single verse in the gospels where Jesus approves of same-sex sexuality or same-sex marriage. “Former president Jimmy Carter said on Tuesday that he believes Jesus would approve of gay marriage, though he said that he doesn’t have ‘any verse in scripture’

‘Progressive’ Pastor Gets It All Wrong on What It Means to be Free

While it seems that incidents of homosexuals bashing anybody who disagrees with them have died down, don’t think that the Gaystapo is not planning more assaults. The latest assault comes from Rev. Chuck Queen. Rev. Queen (his real name) is the senior pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church in Frankfort, Kentucky. He’s

Criticizing Christians for Being ‘Less than Loving’ Means Criticizing Jesus for the Same Thing

“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

Was Jesus Buried for Three Full Days and Nights?

There has been considerable debate over the best way to interpret the three-days and three-night language of Matthew 12:40, either as three 24-hour days of exactly 72 hours or parts of three days and three nights. Because you can’t get three full days if the count begins on Friday, some

Why “Love Thy Neighbor” Is Not a Support for Same-Sex Marriage

I was listening to “The Herman Cain Show” yesterday morning when a caller wanted to know how Christians, who are told to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt. 22:39; Mark 12:31; Gal. 5:14), can stand against same-sex marriage. Herman Cain did not give a very good answer. I’m always amazed

Republican Governor John Kasich Says Bible Supports Obamacare

John Kasich appealed to Matthew 25:42-43 in support of Obamacare. “Promoting Obamacare in South Dakota, Montana and several national interviews last week, Kasich touted the Bible chapter’s depiction of judgment based on individual charity as a sweeping endorsement of government programs for the poor.” “Individual charity” is not government confiscation in the form

Pope Francis Doesn’t Know Much About Economics

When Pope Francis speaks, liberals listen, except when it’s about abortion and same-sex marriage, unless, of course, he spouts liberal talking points. His latest comments are about the poor. “The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call

Why President Obama and Michelle (and Every Member of Congress) Should be Seen as the Help

There’s more racial politics coming from Michelle Obama. In an interview, “Michelle Obama said a woman asked her for help getting something off a shelf at Target, describing racial experiences she’s had.” What was Michelle doing shopping in Target? It was a publicity stunt. The Clintons did stuff like this.

Liberals Bite on another Fake Jesus Was Married Story

I love how liberals hate the Bible when it speaks so clearly on issues like abortion, homosexuality, property rights, and private charity over against State-sanctioned welfare, but love whacko stories about Jesus being married and having children when there is absolutely no historical evidence behind the claims. The UK newspaper, The

Dolly Parton Condemns Christians for Being Against Gay Sex

I don’t expect Dolly Parton to be a theologian, but you don’t have to be one when you read what the Bible says about same-sex sexuality. Once a person appeals to God for something, that person is stuck with God’s opinion on that something. Of course, even if a person
