No civil rulers are to be obeyed when they enjoin things that are inconsistent with the commands of God: All such disobedience is lawful and glorious. — Jonathan Mayew, Preacher in The First Great Spiritual Awakening

Bureaucratic Red Tape Strangles Jobs

Adam Bitely

In a 245-172 vote in the House on July 26, the House passed H.R. 4078, the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act. This legislation, if passed by the Senate and signed by the President, would stop the federal government from imposing many harmful regulations that cripple job creation until the unemployment rate dips below 6 percent. Unfortunately, Harry Reid will block this attempt at stopping Big Government from ever seeing the light of day in the Senate and Obama has promised to veto this bill should it ever reach his desk.

Owens’ Law of Oscillating Pyramids

Dr. Robert R. Owens

At the time of the American Revolution, there was no direct taxation. There was instead taxes on various transactions which in total added up to a miniscule percentage of their income. Today, for many it is now over 50%. How much corn are we willing to give to those we don’t trust to do things we don’t want? How long can this continue?

Confusing Divergence With Adherence

Bob Ellis

How can you defend Christianity when there are so many bad things from within Christendom? What about all the wars in which Christians have fought? What about all the TV preachers who have abused the trust of people who listen to them? What about all the evil and harmful things done by people who call themselves Christians?

Thoughts on the Coming Election

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The courts have been packed, the banks have been bought off, and the unions use legally mandated dues to support candidates and policies their unwilling members don’t want. Check and check-mate. The situation has become so dire and the hour so late that it appears the only line of defense we have left between the USA and the USSA is a House of Representatives controlled by Progressive Republicans and the hope of a Senate controlled by the same crowd. The old bulls talk conservative to get elected, then join hands across the aisles in a marriage of despotism with deceit.

You Can’t Tame God

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
