  • I Vote for the Platform that Respects God-Given Life, Liberty,and the Pursuit of Private Property

    Oct 29, 2020 | 15:03 pm

    I Vote for the Platform that Respects God-Given Life, Liberty,and the Pursuit of Private Property I am a liberal. At least that's what some of the leaders of the Christian denomination to which I belong say about me. They say that I am a liberal. But as is the case with every obloquy, context is everything. I believe in the veracity (truthfulness) of the Bible.Because of my trust in Scripture, I believe in the equality of men and women. I believe the Bible teaches that leadership in the church and society should be based on character and gifting and not color or gender. I believe that every human being is created in the image of God and there is only one race[…]

  • Leftism/Nazism: The Sacred Principle of Sameness

    Oct 28, 2020 | 07:59 am

    Leftism/Nazism: The Sacred Principle of Sameness Political leftism destroys personal liberty. How is that possible, you ask? do you believe that leftism/liberalism gives more freedom, not less? You are mistaken. Here's why. The sacred principle of sameness is the standard of leftism. For example, the Nazis of Germany during World War II were socialists. Leftism was their political philosophy. Some cannot comprehend how Nazism (The National Socialist German Workers' Party) was leftism on parade. In fact, liberals today do everything in their power to convince you that Nazism isn't socialism, a position that is in complete denial of the Nazi name and platform. The Nazi platform stated:"We demand[…]

  • Good Deeds May Be Repaid with Evil in This Life

    Oct 24, 2020 | 08:40 am

    Good Deeds May Be Repaid with Evil in This Life A Doolittle Raider headed to Tokyo, JapanI am researching the life of John Birch, a Baptist missionary in China who was assassinated by communists on August 25, 1945, just days after the end of World War II. Some call Birch the first victim of the impending World War III. During my research, I discovered that Birch providentially met Lt. Col. James Doolittle on April 20, 1942, in China as the Doolittle Raiders attempted to escape Japanese-occupied China after crash landing their planes there on April 18, 1942. Col. Doolittle and his men had bombed Tokyo, the capital of the Japanese Empire, in[…]

  • The True Size of the USA Is Smaller Than We Think

    Oct 9, 2020 | 09:09 am

    The True Size of the USA Is Smaller Than We Think Below is a map of the United States superimposed over Africa. The website True Size allows you to move countries and position them over other countries (or continents) to see the true geographical size of nations.One of the dangers of self-absorption is the inflated view of oneself and the inability to see reality objectively. The United States has a self-absorbed culture. This little map might humble us enough to see that we Americans don't wear as big of britches on the world stage as we might think."I the LORD bring down the tall tree and I exalt the low tree."[…]

  • A Personalized Bible Is a Great Gift for Loved Ones

    Oct 7, 2020 | 12:20 pm

    A Personalized Bible Is a Great Gift for Loved Ones Wade's study Bible from PersonalizedBibles.comFor regular readers of my blog, you know I've lamented often over the dearth of Biblical knowledge in the United States. Americans used to be able to speak the same language, full of references from the Scriptures. Every citizen of the United States had at least a general knowledge of what the Bible teaches. No more. When the #1 song in America is the obscene, profane, and sexually explicit song called WAP, the Bible is the last thing Americans, especially millennials, have read or want to read.That's why I have a suggestion for you.Send to those that you[…]

  • "John Childers' Soul Has Gone to Hell --"

    Oct 1, 2020 | 17:40 pm

    "John Childers' Soul Has Gone to Hell --" "Men are not hanged for stealing horses, but that horses may not be stolen." George SavileAs promised, I will tell you the story of a man named John Childers and the judgment that comes to those who mock God and His commandments. On Friday, August 15, 1873, the United States government hanged John Childers in Fort Smith, Arkansas. In an age of "social justice" when Americans seem concerned about oppression and injustice, but pay little attention to crimes committed, even releasing criminals "without bail," we're due for a good reminder that ultimate justice is in the hands of Almighty God. To flaunt[…]

  • WARNING: Explicit Post on WAP and Judgement

    Sep 28, 2020 | 08:00 am

    WARNING: Explicit Post on WAP and Judgement Cardi B, the Rap artist who sings WAPI'm embarrassed to write this post. I freely admit that I'm out of touch with current culture. However, young people might benefit from my understanding of the eternal truth that God will not allow the mocking of His character and standards for long.A day of reckoning is coming for the United States.The word God is an abbreviation of the name "good." God's actual name in Hebrew is four-letters, YHWH, and it is pronounced (without vowels) like the sound you make when you breathe. Every time you see the name LORD (all capitals in English)[…]

  • U.S. Citizens Must Have the Mentality of a Marine

    Sep 25, 2020 | 09:04 am

    U.S. Citizens Must Have the Mentality of a Marine Slavery is evil.All human beings intuitively know this. That knowledge is part of the innate Law of God that the Creator makes plain in every human conscience.  Philosopher John Locke (1632-1704) called this knowledge Natural Law, and argued that humans know by nature that it is wrong to kill, enslave, or steal. Therefore, according to Locke, every human being has Natural Rights guaranteed by Nature and Nature's God. They are "life, liberty, and property." Thomas Jefferson and the Founders of the United States changed Locke's concept of  "property" to  "the pursuit of happiness" in The Declaration of Independence. The Founders knew that citizens' freedom to pursue private property led[…]

  • The Social Dilemma, Francis Bacon, Jesus & Truth

    Sep 22, 2020 | 10:53 am

    The Social Dilemma, Francis Bacon, Jesus & Truth Last week, my wife Rachelle and I watched the documentary The Social Dilemma. The film examines the rise of social media and the damage it causes society. It features interviews with Tristan Harris, a former Google design ethicist who quit Google and founded The Center for Humane Technology. Our youngest son told us that after he watched The Social Dilemma, he did away with all his social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.In essence, the documentary's premise is that hatred, division, and the extreme polarization in our politics and culture are due to one fundamental problem. Tristan Harris states the problem succinctly:"You look[…]
