• Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

    It is not delusional to expect elected officials to keep their word. When a politician says they will fight tooth and nail for something, it is reasonable to expect that they will. It is not delusional to expect an elected official who put his or her hand on a Bible and swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States to do that.

  • Covetousness as Idolatry

    Consider the multi-billion dollar industry of Madison Avenue. It is devoted to manipulating people to desire things they probably cannot afford, so that they buy things they do not need to impress people they don’t even care about. How do we oppose this lure of covetousness in our own heart, how do we oppose the politics of covetousness in our culture?

  • When the Political Door Closes and the Prophetic Door Opens

    Most of the trouble in our world takes place either when civil and ecclesiastical powers marry or merge, or when civil power takes it upon itself to completely stop religion. Not all religion is legitimately pointing to the Creator God, so it goes without saying that this statement does not include all religions in the most general sense of the word, but only those ordained by the Creator of mankind.

  • The First One to Thirty Wins

    Whatever happened to the fighting spirit inside the Christian man? They killed the will. Somewhere along the way the enemy killed the will. Passive, sit on your butt, whiney Christianity has turned the average American male into a compliant pile of play dough.

  • Merging Paul’s Outreach with Cruz’s Principles

    Ted Cruz has a bit of an image problem while Rand Paul has a bit of a message problem. Cruz is more consistent but obviously more maligned. Both men are highly intelligent. Cruz is traditionalist while Paul thinks outside the box. Both men hold our rule of law in very high regard but at the end of the day each possesses a bit of what the other lacks.

  • What We Already Knew: Bergdahl a Deserter

    Now it has been revealed that what most of us with half a brain knew all along: Bowe Bergdahl, the man for whom President Obama traded five terrorists, is a worthless deserter. Whether he was a terrorist-sympathizer (as many reports seemed to indicate) remains to be officially seen, but I wouldn’t be surprised there, either. When President Obama released these terrorists back into the wild to “get Bergdahl back,” we were told that we needed to get Bergdahl back, that he had served in the military with “honor and distinction.”

  • Empty Houses

    Home is where… no one is. That seems to be the modern trend. City dwellers lead hectic lives, our suburbs are “bedroom communities”, and the talent of the next generation is quickly fleeing small rural towns. Our homes are empty for far too many hours of the day, and this trend has been steadily reshaping society.

  • Can Obama Serve Another Term?

    I have heard from time to time that there are people in America who believe Obama is going to try to run for another term as President. I could see the theory flames being stoked this weekend as Obama invoked the “cut it out” gesture, slicing his hand in front of his neck while a small crowd at a Princeton basketball game cheered, “Four more years! Four more years!”

    Can Obama Serve Another Term?

FEMA Becomes Liberal Ideology Enforcement Agency

New Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) rules on requirements for states to receive federal emergency preparedness dollars are being met with disbelief by many of the nation’s governors. The new rule forces a state to include a “consideration of changing environmental or climate conditions that may affect and influence the long-term vulnerability from hazards in the state” in conducting risk assessments.

Election 2016: A Jest of Hillary or Simply a Media Jest

Personally, I hate the campaign season and all the lies one is forced to endure as it goes on and on and on and on. Oh, excuse me. I’ve forgotten my politically correct Orwellian manners. “I hate all the mis-speaks and mis-spokens by the people who seem to have trouble articulating the truth.” Hillary? I wonder if she has been ducking anymore sniper fire as she scurries about trying to flee the email scandal?

The Roman Centurion: ‘I Am Not Worthy’

All true rights and liberties are bestowed via a restoration only made possible by the greatest act of love in the history of mankind. To know and experience the saving grace of God is to be free from the bondage of sin. This is the divine justice, deliverance, and transcendence that surpasses all of mankind’s feeble and futile attempts toward utopia.
