Modern Western Civilization Built on Christianity

Wallbuilders Live aired another very interesting show yesterday (and continued today), entitled “What is Civilization,” featuring a speech by Rabbi Daniel Lapin. Lapin began yesterday by pointing out the fallacy of the claim that there are no differences between civilizations. He told of a study conducted in China some years ago that examined the question of why Europe had leaped so far ahead of Asia and the rest of the world 500-600 years ago. After extensive study, they reached a startling conclusion: religion.

The Scientific Absurdity of Atheism

This video was put together by the Atheist Antidote, with Dennis Prager (one of my favorite columnists) narrating. The video plays off an article in Harper’s Magazine called “The accidental universe: Science’s crisis of faith” by Alan Lightman, a physicist and novelist who teaches at MIT. It points out the scientific absurdity of atheism, and the fact that science points repeatedly and overwhelmingly toward an intelligent designer. Atheistic scientists, despite their protests, are on the opposite side from science.

A Modern Missile Crisis

A Modern Missile Crisis

Shark Tank has an excellent interview with Rep. Allen West (R-FL) concerning national defense and foreign policy. The defense cuts Democrats are drooling to make are reckless and will endanger our nation at a time when our Armed Forces desperately need to be built back up after nearly a decade of fighting terrorism on two different fronts–and faces new threats from belligerent nations like Iran, North Korea, and China. There is also a threat in our back yard from Venezuela and Marxist America-hater Hugo Chavez.

Another Gospel 

Another Gospel 

The Bible doesn’t leave us hanging. It shows us the way home, how we’re supposed to get across the gulf that exists between us and God. The question that needs to be asked is: do you believe in personal salvation based upon the life, the death and the resurrection of Jesus? Or do you believe in a collective salvation which is diametrically opposed to the truth who was born in a manger, lived a perfect life, died on a cross in payment for sin, and rose from the dead.

Mary Did You Know?

Mary Did You Know?

This is one of my most favorite songs, especially around Christmas. I can’t listen to it without getting emotional.Many people have done their own version of this song, but I like Michael English’s the best.  There is a different YouTube version of this video than the one below, one that contains clips from a Jesus movie I can’t identify, but embedding is turned off. You can watch it here. I suspect Mary did know a great many of these things.  But given that we now have the benefit of hindsight in understanding God’s great plan through Jesus (and we still probably only scratch the surface in appreciating what it all means), I’m sure she had no idea of many 0thers.

In The Beginning Was the Word

In The Beginning Was the Word

The Gospel of John, Chapter One: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it. 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, […]

Calgary Welcomes Occupiers, Arrests Christians

Calgary Welcomes Occupiers, Arrests Christians

The war against God in the public square is not confined to the United States. It is being waged in most Western countries to silence and curtail the religious freedom of Christians. Listen to this report about how Calgary’s Muslim mayor welcomed the Occupy Wall Street Marxists into city hall, but charged a Christian preacher with trespassing.

Merry Christmas From a Non-Christian Head of State

Merry Christmas From a Non-Christian Head of State

While in some parts of the world, those in power want to kill and eradicate Christians, here we see the Prime Minister of the Jewish state of Israel wishing Christians a Merry Christmas. In this video clip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu–the Jewish head of a Jewish nation–wishes the Christians in his country and around the world a Merry Christmas (something a few people find themselves unable to do here in the United States where we have a 200+ year old Christian heritage and where more than 80% of Americans still call themselves Christians).

Celebrating Christmas Could Be a Death Sentence for Some

Celebrating Christmas Could Be a Death Sentence for Some

Despite several decades of war by secularists on Christianity and the celebration of Christmas, we still have it pretty good in America. When you take a look around the world, at the high cost in some places of identifying with the name of Christ, we are extremely blessed here. In many countries, it can cost you your life to be recognized as a Christian.

Chinese Expansion Stepping on US Toes in the Pacific

Chinese Expansion Stepping on US Toes in the Pacific

Control of Micronesia was key to swift Japanese victories on Guam, the Philippines, Wake Island, Kiribati, New Guinea, and Nauru. During the war, much of the Japanese fleet was based in Truk Lagoon. Four years and one hundred thousand American lives later, the U.S. declared no nation would ever again enjoy such a strategic foothold in the Pacific. Yet we are watching the expansionist Chinese making incursions in that area, and the United States is doing little to maintain its foothold in this strategic location.
