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...

  The media reported that thousands of students protested climate change on September 20th.  Demonstrations took place in a number of cities around the globe which pointed anger at the oil and coal industries.  How many of these young minds full of parrot droppings have actually taken the time to read what scientists on both sides of the issue have to say?  It’s safe to suppose that less than one perc...

  The top tier Democratic candidates continue to provide every imaginable reason for their assumed qualifications to be president.  They speak of grandiose ideas and theories which find no support in actual working experience.  Not one of these people has built or created anything but rather have spent their careers in academy or government, wasting taxpayers’ money.  One thing they lack not is so-cal...

 The liberal media and their neurotic pals hold Donald Trump in malignant disdain.  That, of course, is an understatement of the obvious.  This is all to be expected, but mysteriously many RINO’s and other so-called Conservatives share the same contempt for the president.  Some of the reasons given are his willingness to publicly take on his political opponents with occasional tweet storms or a brash...

It was Will Rogers, Mark Twain, or someone of similar wit who once said:  “No man’s property, life or liberty are safe while Congress is in session.”  No wonder America has felt safer these past few weeks!  An old preacher friend collected dozens of these short, sarcastic quips over the years that seem to have an appropriate application to the esteemed “House of Lords” in Washington.  Even though inte...

New Testament Christians are operating under the ever increasing impression that many elected and unelected officials in government are their enemies.  When those in authority express continual hatred toward Israel, they put our entire nation at risk for divine judgment (Genesis 12:1-3). Muslims have been allowed to immigrate in sufficient numbers to declare Sharia law in wide swaths of cities - all...

It is impossible for some people to take this column seriously because it is constructed weekly upon the “absurd notion” that the Bible is the truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  There is one Book that solves every problem that the scientists, philosophers and nut doctors can’t.  They want to supply their own answers because they simply don’t like the solutions that the Holy God of the uni...
