A holiday respite was indeed welcomed, leading to a conclusion that a deeper breath is necessary.  For more than ten years I have written for various newspapers with full appreciation for the opportunity to place politics in the light of genuine Truth (John 17:17).  Every attempt has been made to investigate current events under the microscope of Biblical principles and illustrations.  It is becoming...

At this writing the House Judiciary Committee has, along straight party lines, voted to proceed ahead with the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.  The allegations against the president are the abused power of his office and obstruction of Congress.  The metamorphosis of charges have reminded us of a desert lizard changing color in response to the amount of direct sunlight it received.  After the Mueller...

Mother Pelosi recently exhibited a meltdown when a reporter asked her if she hated Donald Trump.  In complete exasperation she retreated to her Catholic faith, explaining that her religion prohibits hate.  We are then to suppose that Nancy has never entertained the slightest notion of every violating any dictates of her church.  The subject of abortion will remain in the basement awaiting its resurrec...

Recent polls indicate that an increasing number of Democrats are growing more fearful of the extreme left in their party, resulting in a further leaning toward the professed centrists.  A significant number of voters consider themselves moderates when approaching the electoral process.  The notion of moderation suggests a middle-of-the-road attitude, where issues and candidates are weighed individuall...

Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified before a Congressional committee that President Trump expressed no expectations of Ukraine except that the president of that nation do the right thing.  In the context of past performance, the obvious meaning would be to investigate corruption at all levels.  The only reason the Democrats are in such anxiety over that recommendation is they know any legitimate inve...

With the realization that most American history that mentions God has been thoroughly sanitized, I thought it appropriate to rehearse the real Thanksgiving story.

The story actually began in 1608 when a small group of Separatist Congregationalists under the leadership of their pastor, John Robinson, fled from England to Holland because of religious persecution.  Although the Dutch offered the Pilgrims...

Christians who possess a basic awareness of Bible prophecy realize the eventual destiny of America and the nations of the world is one that will be crushed by the Stone of Jesus Christ (see Daniel 2).  The spiritual decline of our country will slide us into the same pit as Europe and be completely hostile toward the God of the Scriptures.  This knowledge causes many Believers to embrace a fatalistic a...

 California is burning up, but its Democratic Congressional delegates are missing in action.  The general rule has always been that disasters of this proportion garner the personal presence and attention of the district’s representatives.  It has long been thought that free television appearances in the midst of these catastrophes benefit politicians greatly.  So what could be so critical to keep them...

One of the marvelous mysteries of the Bible is its ability to provide multiple applications from one passage.  Isaiah 59 is primarily directed at Israel but has obvious overtones toward any nation that forgets God.  Under present political circumstances, it seems salient to first consider the effects before examining the cause.  “Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us:  we...

The parables that Jesus employed were often intended to be cloaked in certain mystery, reserving the true meaning only for believers, but He never resorted to language that could be misunderstood.  The Lord spoke with very plain words which initiated an uproar of its own making. Matthew 13 records seven parables, all of which had something to do with the restoration of a political kingdom which the Je...

The political history of humanity can be consolidated in the simple phrase…”Who is going to run whom.”  The how, when, why and where are only sidebars to the central issue of control.  The American experiment was absolutely unique in its effort to give the individual as much freedom as possible.  The only prototype in history that rang similar chords was ancient Israel following the Exodus.  Every pro...

Donald Trump can be credited for advancing evolution at a supersonic speed.  What used to be media parakeets have advanced to full-fledged parrots, displaying a variety of plumage and color.  The one persistent difficulty is that they all say the same thing including adjectives and buzzwords.  Their speech betrays any real objectivity, leaving any reasonable person to wonder who the puppet master real...
