History in the Making: July 2020 Snapshot and Predictions
“A hundred years from now, there will be history professors who specialize in the study of one quarter of the year 2020.” I remember instantly thinking, “Yeah, that’s about right” as I read that a few weeks back, on Twitter I think. It’s a paraphrase, but you get the idea: We are living in an […]
Encouraging Christian Leaders To Lead As Christians
Why does God raise up Christian leaders? To mimic unbelievers by modeling the same dismissive, destructive approach that they naturally take to His Word. Nope. God raises up Christian leaders to lead as Christians. This is the critical subject that we dove into in last week’s Tennessee General Assembly Bible Study in Nashville, which I’d […]
Putting Government In Its Place
What is the role of government? Well, that depends on whether we’re talking about self-government, family government, church government, or civil government. But we don’t even seem to know that there are such things as self government, family government, and church government these days; at least not in the sense that these areas of government […]
King of Kings: Political, Patriarchal & All-Conquering
He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. . ~ Revelation 19:15-16 . There’s a whole lotta crazy sweeping the culture these days, particularly on the patriarchy front, […]
Wanna MAGA? Model Hungary.
Guess which country just cracked down on “gender studies” and shored up its economic future by increasing gold holdings by ten fold? That would be Hungary. Which is why Hungary is so hated by the NPC/Fake News media that would have us believe that such shifts in government and culture can’t actually be accomplished in […]
Wouldn’t it be great if our political leaders understood Christ as Lord?
As a quick scan of our political culture makes painfully plain, “We the People” have wandered (or run) far from many of the fundamental truths necessary to the pursuit or maintenance of true peace, prosperity, and freedom. We’ve wandered so far into the darkness that nothing short of divine intervention can save us. Thankfully, God […]
Why Leftists Routinely Murder Diversity (And Millions Of People Along The Way)
Why is it becoming commonplace for Leftists and anti-Christians of various sorts to openly advocate and practice acts of physical violence against those who dare not share (and have the nerve to openly oppose) their worldview? . For the same basic reason that major corporations are now colluding in an attempt to de-platform those who […]
Confronting The “Person of Faith” Non-Label Label
When a politician in America describes themselves as “a person of faith”, what are they telling us about themselves? Nothing. Nothing good, anyway. Everyone has faith and everyone is a person, so claiming to be a “person of faith” literally says tells us nothing about the person making the claim. As we all know (or […]
To despise the Law of God is to despise the Son of God. (Or: Truth you won’t hear in most American churches.)
If we have a low regard for God’s Law, we a have a low regard for God’s Son. We don’t hear that much from American church pulpits these days, do we? Yet few truths are more clearly conveyed in God’s Word. Again and again, Jesus is described as the embodiment and fulfillment of what? The […]
Why not just ask the prospective Supreme Court Justice exactly what he thinks of abortion?
Of all the Orwellian doublethink idiocy that passes for “serious political conversation” these days, none is more Orwellian or more idiotic than the prevailing notion that a President (or anyone else) shouldn’t dare ask in a straightforward manner what the exact position of a judge (or anyone else) is on abortion. Could it be that […]
Want to actually end the illegal immigration problem? Ditch the Welfare State.
What does the average American want more: The Welfare State or a real, working, easily implemented solution to the ongoing illegal immigration crisis? For roughly 99.9% of Americans, the answer is clear: The Welfare State. And that probably includes over 90% of professing conservative Christians here in “the land of the free” and home of […]
Does MAGA Trump Scripture? Mike Pence Seems To Think So. . .
When it comes to the contrived, controlled Left/Right paradigm promoted by the system under which we (temporarily) live here in the “land of the free” and the home of the NSA, there are all kinds of fundamental questions that Christians are encouraged not to even notice, much less contemplate or answer. Questions like: Is it […]
It’s Not Government’s Job To License Professionals
Free men and women don’t go to the State for permission to pursue a profession. They simply pursue the profession. Free men and women aren’t required to submit to the State in order to earn the right to use their God-given talents and abilities. They simply use their God-given talents and abilities. Free men are […]
It’s Not Government’s Job To Protect Us From Weeds
It’s not the job of government to protect us from weeds. You’d think that much would be obvious, especially to self-described conservatives, and doubly so for conservative Christians, but you’d be wrong. Most “conservative Christians” in America are quite certain that it is government’s job to protect us from weeds (or, to be more precise, […]
Britain Would Rather Murder A Child Than Expose Its Socialized Medical System To Competition
Freedom and liberty are incompatible with Socialism. And murderously so. When freedom and liberty are sacrificed on the altar of Socialism (which America has embraced as its guiding idol for some time now, by the way), the literal sacrifice of children follows in short order. This truth has been born out in tragic fashion once […]
10 Things Christians Should Know About Government
As Christians in 2018 America we’ve been blessed with opportunities that few others in human history have even come close to experiencing. For this we should be eternally grateful. At the same time, as Christians in 2018 America we’ve become far removed from the worldview that inspired Pilgrim Puritans to plant the seeds that eventually […]
Liberty, Tyranny & Romans 13
How has God defined His creation of civil government? The question itself sounds more than a little weird to the typical American ear these days. The notion of civil government as God’s creation is foreign to us. Even so, and as Scripture makes abundantly clear, civil government is indeed His creation. It’s His property. With […]
A Blowtorch In The Darkness: Bible Study And Discipleship In The State Capitol
Amidst the craziness and cultural rot that’s been defining things around here for far too long, something supernaturally cool is going on. Many things, actually, but one I want to take a sec to get you up to speed on is the Bible study and discipleship ministry that was launched just over two weeks ago […]
What’s the real “state of the union”? Do we even want to know?
It’s that “State of the Union” time again, a time when political leaders at State and Federal levels give grand speeches yammering on about how great, awesome, and incredibly well off we are. While some of the points they make are rooted in truth, most are not. But how do we know which is which? […]
Swamps, Shitholes, And 13 Things To Remember As The FISA Memo Nuke Explodes Over DC
How sadly appropriate it is that a week begun with relentless media obsession over President Trump having supposedly referred to certain nations as “shitholes” now ends with the looming release of a detailed memo that could seriously threaten and possibly even crack the very foundation of America’s farcical approach to freedom, liberty, and democracy? Before […]
True Freedom REQUIRES The Freedom To Fail
1. The primary purpose of State “help” is to foster State dependence. 2. More and more Americans love – and demand – State “help” in practically every area of life. These two realities make it plain that, barring radical repentance and reformation, we are (and should be) a doomed people – and by “people” here […]
From Manger to Throne: The King of Kings and His Everything-Conquering Kingdom
Everybody loves babies. They’re easy to adore. Cute…helpless…dependent… Which is why celebrations of Christ’s birth that define this time of year are such an easy sell for many who openly despise the notion of a King of kings ruling over them (including many who claim to be Christian). It’s easy to fawn over a baby. […]
How about background checks for governments wanting guns?
Ever stopped to notice that most gun grabbers like to grab a lot more than guns? Like private property rights, privacy rights, free speech liberties, and vulnerable women, to name a few in no particular order. It’s as though the more power some people are given (particularly people operating in the highest levels of the […]
Catalonia Votes To Secede From Spain; State-Programmed Americans Confused And Suspicious
How cool would it be if there was a real group of people somewhere in the West who would actually take a stand by peacefully seeking independence from the massive Socialist State ruling over them? How neat would it be for an actual group of actual people to come together right here in the 21st century to peacefully pursue actual independence from such a […]
Vouchers vs. The Separation of Education and State
Let’s be clear about a few key facts: 1. Government distributed vouchers are Socialism. 2. Vouchers are the forced redistribution of resources in accordance with basic Marxist/Socialist principles. 3. Vouchers are funded through the confiscation (theft) of private property by using the coercive power of the state. I understand that there are many good, God-fearing, conservatively […]
The 10 Planks Of American Socialism
One of the most surreal aspects of modern American culture is the manner in which the vast majority of self-identified conservative Christians have simultaneously embraced three bizarrely (and embarrassingly) contradictory approaches to life: We’ve become stark raving Socialists in practice. From public schools, Social Security, and Medicare to the State-licensing/controlling of finance, industry, medicine, media, […]
To bow or not to bow: President Trump, American pride, and submitting to the King.
To bow or not to bow. That is the question. Or at least it has been over the past few days of President Trump’s diplomatic adventure to Saudi Arabia. While there’s a truckload of strangeness worthy of examination where the nature of Saudi Arabia and its relationship the United States is concerned, the hope here is to take this opportunity […]
DC isn’t the answer. DC is the problem.
What is – or should be, anyway – the most glaring lesson of the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama/Trump era? What should be the most obvious truth revealed by the manner in which DC has operated over the past several decades (if not over the past century and a half or so)? One glaring, flaming, white hot revealed truth that should certainly […]
How To Drain The Swamp In Three Simple Steps
Wanna drain the swamp? I mean really drain the swamp. Starting right now. Contrary to popular opinion, it can be done. Yes, really. Here are three simple (not to be confused with “easy” or “small”) guaranteed-to-work steps: Take self government seriously. Strive to know and submit to the loving, life-giving and culture-defining Word of God in every beautiful […]
We won’t drain the swamp of thieves until we drain the swamp of power.
Many who passionately pulled the proverbial lever for The Donald to be come The President did so because they basically wanted to, figuratively if not literally, blow up the DC establishment. They wanted to drain the swamp. Or so the slogan went, anyway. But as with many things in general, and most things DC-specific, the […]
So the GOP wants to “repair” rather than “repeal” ObamaCare (and every other satanic Socialist program in America). How awesome is that?!
So the GOP is gonna “fix” Socialism for us! Again! Like they’ve “fixed” the satanic/Socialist public school system. And like they’re “fixed” the satanic/Socialist Social Security system. And like they’ve “fixed” the satanic, black magic fiat economic system that inherently makes masses dependent upon those who claim for themselves the power to magically create fake money out […]
Secession: It’s not just a right wing thing anymore.
Radical decentralization is coming. It’s inevitable. The localized empowerment of people, families, and small communities though God’s provision of incredible technologies and opportunities the likes of which were unthinkable or limited to works of science-fiction just a few decades ago is really, truly, and actually coming our way. No matter how hard the forces of Corporate/State-consolidated […]
The Incompetence Of Evil Empires (Like Ours)
Evil empires are stupid empires. And why is that? Because evil empires are built upon the rejection of God’s Nature as revealed in His Word on things like law, economics, war, peace, liberty, freedom, prosperity, and politics. And that’s stupid. Really stupid, once you understand and embrace that a foundational truth covering all that exists […]
Confronting And Correcting The Prison Industrial Complex
Isn’t it interesting that Scripture never even begins to advocate the use of anything remotely resembling the current American prison system when it comes to punishing criminal behavior? Instead the perfect, sufficient Word of God offers clear standards centering on concepts like restitution – and not restitution to the State, but restitution to the one who has been done […]
How A “Two Kingdoms” Mindset Is Escorting America To Hell
“Jesus is Lord over all or He isn’t Lord at all.” Heard that one before? Yeah, me too. Funny thing is, I usually hear it from Americanized Evangelicals who rather emphatically do not believe that Jesus is Lord over all sorts of things – like politics, economics, business, art, law, games, sports, civil government, and children’s education […]
As America Begs For Tyranny To “Save It”, The Kingdom Of God Advances On All Fronts
One empire is dying. While another emerges. As I sat through about an hour of live coverage of the Dallas police shootings earlier tonight (please pray!), this heavy but beautiful truth seemed to become clearer with each passing minute of professional commentary and expert analysis, not that this was the goal of said experts, of course. […]
Yes, the Bible trumps the Constitution here in America (and everywhere else in God’s creation).
With “The Bible Bill” once again getting national press as it nears the finish line in the Tennessee State General Assembly, which is to consider an override of Governor Bill Haslam’s veto later today, this seems like a good time to share a few simple truths – truths that are intensely despised and actively opposed by even most professing […]
Ben Carson makes deal with The Donald: Endorses unrepentant biblically illiterate strip club promoter for President.
Here we go again. Another highly regarded “Christian leader” – this time one o’ the tip top faves of the super-duper-Christian-ish (and thoroughly paganized) Political Right – has “come out” as the latest in a long line of pragmatically pagan-minded politicos to endorse an unrepentant, biblically illiterate casino and strip club promoter for President. But how can […]
Why are “Pro-Life” leaders preserving abortion in Oklahoma?
Legislation has been introduced to abolish abortion in Oklahoma. So you might be surprised to hear that high profile “Pro-Life” leaders have come out against the bill…but you shouldn’t be. Why have they come out against it? Why would “Pro-Life” leaders oppose a bill that aims to really, truly, and actually abolish human baby murder? Because, so say the […]
Super-Satanic Tuesday: How’s that “lesser of two evils” deal looking now?
With the fear-driven American political puppet show drama about to hit its primary season peak (right on schedule), we’re well served to resist the relentless promotion of emotion-driven anxiety pitched by countless (and often “conservative Christian”) media mouthpieces and take a moment to calmly (you know, as if King Jesus is actually on His throne) assess just […]
Rubio and Cruz fight over who can ignore Scripture the most (in practice) while claiming to love it the loudest (in word).
In keeping with the now long-standing American tradition of professing Christian conservatives claiming the name of Christ and an affinity for the Bible in word while pretty much ignoring the Word of God on law and civil government in practice, Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have locked horns in a political life-and-death battle over who will carry the […]
Ted Cruz Brings the Gospel of American Statism to South Carolina Christians
Like inviting Dracula over for dinner, inviting a Statist over to preach has its consequences. One such consequence is the further promotion and cementing in place of the anti-Christ religion of American Statism as an ally or expression of biblical Christianity in the minds of American Christians who have for generations now been purposefully programmed to conflate secular conservatism […]
Obama to Select Scalia Replacement for US Supreme Court as Fear Grips (and Steers) the Hearts of American “Christians”
The US Supreme Court that imposed “gay marriage” and ObamaCare upon America is about to take a lunging lurch leftward. With today’s passing of Antonin Scalia, the laughably unfree “land of the free” is almost certain to see a significant slide even further down the rat-hole of DC-down tyranny and the perversion of law. A proud, unrepentant nation that exalts […]
Why Theonomy scares the hell out of people…and cultures…and civilizations…
Ever wonder what the most feared, loathed, hated and despised message to ever hit the ears and self-serving little hearts of unrepentant men and women might be? No need to wonder. Here it is: All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in […]
We don’t need another Constitution. We need another Declaration.
So now we have “legalized” “gay marriage” to go along with our “legalized” child sacrifice to go along with our “legalized” porn to go along with our “legalized” adultery-based business models to go along with all the rest of our now flagrantly, obviously, and catastrophically anti-Christ approach to law and civil government. And in the […]
Two things to pray about, please.
Howdy All, I hope that all is well with you and yours and that your week is rolling along nicely. I have two prayer requests as we head into what is shaping up to be an important weekend of preparation. First, please pray that we will continue to grow in impact despite some significant changes made via […]
Jesus isn’t anybody’s co-pilot.
Everything wrong with us springs from our personal refusal to submit to Christ as King in practice. Everything wrong with our culture flows from our corporate rejection of Christ as Lord in practice. One of the cutesy (and therefore most repulsive) ways we’re naturally wired to express contempt for Christ’s rule over all of creation is by paying lip service to Him as […]
The Many “Conservative” Faces of American Statism
“Fixed” Social Security…”improved” State-run children’s education…”strengthened” Medicare…”necessary” State-run “safety nets”… Welcome to the New Conservatism – a “conservatism” that is flat out socialistic. State-run this, that, and the other thing aren’t just the cherished, protected tools of the Pagan Political Left. They are equally adored and useful to the Pagan Political Right. Just look at […]
The True Gospel Conquers Everything; The Modern American “Gospel”…Not So Much
Here’s some good news about the Good News of the Gospel: It’s about much more than your precious personal salvation. It’s about everything. The Gospel of King Jesus touches, purifies and conquers everything. It’s not about a Kingdom waiting out there in the future somewhere. It’s not about a Kingdom off in some far distant […]

Pedophilia: The next new “Alternate Sexuality”.
What a difference a summer makes, am I right? We now have “gay marriage” (pronounced “gay mirage“) in America, where we like to beg for the wrath of God upon us by pretending to make it “legal”. (See: “Supreme Court” Votes for Wrath of God Upon America.) Then there’s “Transgenderism”. You can’t check out in an […]
US Army protects man-on-boy rape en route to first openly gay leader.
What does a culture – and its military – look like when it is severed from the lordship of Christ? What does a culture look like and what does its military become when both define and pursue “security”, “liberty”, and “freedom” apart from submission to the King of kings? What does a culture and its military devolve […]
Christians rally for the “rights” of Satanists to worship Satan in America.
Interesting and important conversations are taking place in America. Critical and challenging thoughts are being entertained in a serious way by many Americans for the first time in a good long while (if ever). We are now being forced, by the grace of God, to consider what it means exactly to worship and what it […]
Dear America: Jesus isn’t running for King and His Law isn’t “up for a vote” either. Repent accordingly.
Jesus is King. King over America. Right now. Really. And not just King in some hyper-spiritual, intangible “out there” sense in some (safely) distant heaven or in some (safely) future kingdom. Not in some way that limits Him to church buildings or to choir lofts or to the precious little hearts of His sheep. Nope, He is Lord right […]
Liars, Jokers, and Thieves: Do we really want Jesus or do we just want His stuff?
“In God We Trust!” “God bless America!” “Oh, how I love Jesus!” This lingo is all over the place in America. As the culture war rages, loud and proud appeals are constantly made by tens of millions of American professing Christians – especially “conservatives” – who claim to love, trust, and adore God. But what do […]
Why do we allow the open practice of Islam, witchcraft, and Satanism in America?
One of the weirdest and most telltale signs that we’ve become a people completely disconnected from reality is the way that here in America, even most “conservative” professing Christians have come to cherish and defend the concept of religious pluralism. The idea that we have the “God-given ‘right’” to worship any god or practice any religion […]
How unrepentant and lost is Donald Trump? And what does that tell us about America?
The Donald is on fire. And so is American culture. Coincidence? Nope. In the past month, The Trumpinator has moved from a merely dominant top spot in the polls to an even more “absolutely amazing” position, leaving his fellow Republicans struggling to figure out just how to tackle the brash billionaire who promises to “make America great again” without […]
Fox News Equates God’s Law With Islam. American “Conservative Christians” say, “Amen!”
If there’s one thing that absolutely terrifies the typical politically “conservative” churchgoing professing Christian in America, it is the Nature of God as revealed in His Word and Law. More specifically, they’re petrified at even the thought of that Law-Word being taken seriously. As in: applied. As in: for real. As in: Not just […]
There are no “Sword of Truth-free” zones anywhere in God’s creation. Just sayin’.
We’re “educated” from toddlerhood in America to keep The Sword of Truth “in its place” (if we must have one at all), which is, as we are reminded again and again and again: In its sheath and safely stored away at home. Or at church. Or in a prayer closet. Or in our precious, sweet little heart. Or whatever…you […]
Get with the Big Gay Program…or go to jail.
How ready for jail time are you? How ready for jail time is your family? How willing and how prepared to suffer serious persecution for the Word of God in a lawless culture are you, your family, your friends, and your local church? How ready are you to lose friendships, connections, status, employment, employment opportunities, and material […]
The Difference Between Thumping the Bible and Believing It
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (emphasis added) Do we believe this? Do we actually believe that Scripture equips us adequately for every […]
Presuppositional Civil Government: Who we view as owning civil government determines how we will pursue civil government.
What is government? More specifically, what is civil government? Put another way, what is The State? What are its roles, responsibilities, and limitations? Where might we as Christians go to find the answers to these important questions…hrmmm….I wonder… Maybe to…The State? Ummm…nope. Okay, maybe State-certified and State-approved educators then? Uh…no. Bad idea. Well, howsabout other […]
What would a Christian State Governor do about Planned Parenthood and Gay “Marriage”? (Hint: Kim Davis)
What if we had in just one or two of our United States of America and actual Christian State Governor, as in: Someone who demonstrates true love for the real Jesus by striving to actively obey Him in every area of life. You know, as if he actually lived out that whole “if we love […]
