What’s at the Heart of Millennials’ Preference for Socialism?

Socialism has been creeping up in the United States for a long time. It didn’t just become popular with Bernie Sanders and the newly elected congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Socialism has wormed its way into our society a long time ago. Public education, a progressive income tax, and Social Security (especially the

The Passage of 50 Years: Was 1968 Worse than 2018?

On April 5th, 1968 I turned 18. The military draft was in force. At 18 years of age, all men had to register for the draft. The only good thing about the requirement was that you could skip school to register. Two of my high school friends also had birthdays on

Should Ministers Address Politics From the Pulpit?

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

The Danger of Privatized Christianity

“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

Democrat Attorney General Sends Letter Attempting to Silence Churches Ahead of Midterm Elections

Churches have been fooled into believing that they are prohibited from discussing politics from the pulpit. For more than 50 years the threat of the IRS revoking a church’s tax-exempt status has been held over churches. Some pastors don’t care because they don’t want to address controversial issues like politics.

God is First … Politics is Fifth (And Maybe Tenth)

Religion and liberty are the meat and drink of the body politic. Withdraw one of them and it languishes, consumes, and dies. If indifference to either, at any time, becomes the prevailing character of a people, one-half of their motives to vigorous defense is lost, and the hopes of their

Did the Call For Christians to “Just Preach the Gospel” Result in California Becoming Anti-Christian?

California has recently passed laws that could silence Christians on the topic of same-sex sexuality. The law is written in such a way that the sale of Bibles could be banned in California. There are millions of Christians and large Bible-believing churches in California. How could this have happened? A

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

‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ and Political Control Through Force

Movie remakes can be hazardous. Few can compete with the originals. There are exceptions. The Man Who Knew Too Much, Ben Hur, Tombstone (a remake of My Darling Clementine), and Ocean’s Eleven. In other cases, both the original and the remake are good on their own: Pygmalion and My Fair Lady,

Why Do Millions of Christians Ignore Politics?

Let’s get a few preliminaries out of the way. First, there is no doubt that there are few differences between the two major parties. With both Houses of Congress owned by the Republicans, one would think that the claimed differences would have come out and the GOP would have fought

A Book Your Pastor May be Afraid to Read But Could Change America

For years pastors have been reluctant to preach on the subject of politics even though the Bible is full of politics and preaching about politics. There are two books titled “Kings.” A helpful historical study of the subject is Alice Baldwin’s The New England Pulpit and the American Revolution: When

Atheists Work with IRS to Dismantle First Amendment and Attack Churches

The following is from Freedom Outpost: “The Internal Revenue Service settled a 2012 lawsuit brought by the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRM). The lawsuit was settled after the IRS agreed to monitor what is said in houses of worship.” Monitoring churches is something the Nazis did. When German anti-Nazi theologian

The Theological Schizophrenia of Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham has come out with a broadside against pastors. He describes some of today’s pastors as “cowards” for not addressing the social evils of our day. “Graham told a large gathering of pastors on [May 22] to address controversial issues from the pulpit, declaring that ‘God hates cowards.’” Ouch!

It’s Never Pretty When Government Steals Your Money, Supports the Murder of Pre-Born Babies, and Overturns God’s Design for Marriage

More pastors are speaking out on the relationship between the Bible and politics. Unfortunately, some of them are creating a false dichotomy between the gospel and politics. The latest is Perry Noble, pastor NewSpring Church that meets in different locations in major cities in South Carolina and online. He writes
