‘Just Preach the Gospel!’

‘Just Preach the Gospel!’

“Just preach the Gospel!” I hear this all the time from professing Christians who dislike our Christian newspaper because they say it is too “political.” “What do you mean, by ‘political?’” I ask. “Well for one thing, why don’t you lay off on all this ‘ProLife’ stuff? We’re tired of hearing about it. We all know about abortion but we can’t win this one. We just have to accept that it’s a legal medical procedure and a fact of life. I know you don’t like it and I know you feel really strongly about this, Rob, but it’s just not that big of a deal.” This was what I was told by a professing Christian recently, who told me they were not renewing their subscription to our newspaper this year — and the reason they gave was because they were tired of all the articles we publish that they deem as being “too […]

Christmas is not Pagan or ‘Holiday’

Christmas is not Pagan or ‘Holiday’

Each year around this time, in Facebook posts and elsewhere, we are certain to be lectured by well-meaning Christians on the “sinfulness” of celebrating Christmas. Their arguments can be persuasive. “In the Bible, God never told us to celebrate Christmas,” they say. “Christmas has its roots in paganism,” they say.

‘Born That Way’

It’s sad that we, as a nation, have become so callous and so flippant about the subject of sex — something that was, not so long ago, afforded the proper dignity, privacy and respect it deserved. Sex was not something spoken of lightly; it was only the most uncouth who were crass enough to tell dirty jokes and brag about their sexual exploits.

Does Prophecy Speak to America’s Election Result?

Does Prophecy Speak to America’s Election Result?

There has not been a more perplexing turn of events in our politics in many years. Perhaps only at the birth of our nation or at the outset of the Civil War has there been this much distress, angst and civil discontent. Explaining what these events mean will be very difficult.

Happy Thanksgiving to God America, Here is Your History!

Statistically speaking, American Millennials’ (ages 18-34) worst subject is history. Many know very little about our European ancestors, the Pilgrims, to whom the first Thanksgiving is attributed. These were the first Christian families to settle on the east coast of America. Contrary to modern-day teaching, the main purpose the Pilgrims came to America was NOT religious freedom.

The Danger of Bad Company in the Executive Branch

As Donald Trump’s transition team shifts into high gear, we need to be praying for them as well as for him because the decisions made in these days will have great consequences. Those who are chosen to surround the president will have enormous influence upon him and the decisions he will make in office.

Millennials, Do You Support Karl Marx or the Bible?

This election tells us that we are in the midst of an ideological war over this question: what is the purpose of civil government? is it a system of legalized plunder where the producers are robbed by those who won’t work, or is it a government which is focused on protecting God given rights which includes property rights.

Select and Prefer Christians

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. –  John Jay

Yes, Donald Trump is STILL Unacceptable

Over the past few months, I’ve heard countless arguments from Christians who support Donald Trump, an amoral liberal, and want others to vote for him, too. I’ve argued with a number of these people online, too, in conversations that usually quickly end up with Christians saying things that sound very much like the excuses Democrats made to protect their immoral liberal some 20 years ago.
