We’re not electing a pastor…so feel free to ignore everything the Bible says about character, wisdom, wickedness, virtue, vice, truth, judgment, success, and the wrath of God (via wicked leaders).
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~ Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. ~ Proverbs 9:10 . . . look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who […]
American evangelical leaders have worked very hard for a very long time to get us to where we are now. They’ve done more than anyone else to lead us into the socio-political hellhole in which we find ourselves sinking deeper with each passing Drudge Report refresh, and it’s very important that they get the credit they […]
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 […]
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” ~ Matthew 4:8-9 While there’s much that we don’t yet know as to where […]
NFL Playoffs, Presidential Politics, and Other [Purposeful] Distractions (Radio interview on the “Stand Up for the Truth” program.)
Pro football…good or evil? Or perhaps good and evil? What about American Politics and Socialism? How drenched in the latter has the former become? And how saturated in Socialism have the political views of most professing conservative Christians in America become? These and other questions served as springboards for what turned out to be a […]
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 […]
How crackpot crazy has our approach to law and civil government become as “We the People” strive to have anything but the Word of God to rule over us? (See also: Porn, America, and what “rights” look like to people at war with God.) Just how nutty and desperate to “work around” the clear, detailed, […]
What if American Christians were half as committed to obeying Christ as they are to following the Republican Party?
Before I get into this, lemme make something plain: I love politics. I’ve been interested in politics since I can remember being able to remember. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Despite the thorough manner in which we’ve seen Christ’s creation of politics corrupted, contorted, and perverted into the slimy, steaming pile of filth that […]
So why do self-described conservatives in America tend to openly (and often quite proudly) favor rank Socialistic/Marxist programs like Social Security and Public Schools? Why do they tend to automatically favor building a larger military and engaging in even more wars when we are, in a word, broke? (See yesterday’s How can a “broke” country have the […]
Terrorism! Radical Muslims! The gay agenda! Barack Obama! Hillary Clinton! Justin Bieber! Fear! Fear! Fear! Panic! Panic! Panic! Crisis! Crisis! Crisis! If one thing is plain about the “conservative Christian” portion of America’s electorate, it is that fear is the primary motivator determining how its members spend their energy, resources, and votes. What Scripture refers […]
Can you feel the magic? Black magic, I mean. Can you taste the thick artificial flavoring? Are you choking on the overly and overtly manufactured “excitement”? As in: The most legit items on the menu are Donald Trump’s mood and hair. Can you hear the controlled/contrived political puppet show predictably shifting into its standard seasonal gear en route to taking us to […]
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 […]
Politics, education, and the uncomfortable truth about sin. (Radio interview on the “Stand Up for the Truth” program.)
Yesterday I was once again honored to be on the Stand Up for the Truth show with Mike and Amy, and man, lemme tellya, it got really interesting. We started off kicking around the current season of The American Political Puppet Show and talked a bit about what Christians should expect from the current crop […]
Wanna know where the long term embrace of a wildly unbiblical “lesser of two evils” approach to leadership selection leads? Wanna know how easy it is for anti-Christian corporate/banking elites to steer us straight on into hard core Statism through their production, promotion, and control of The All-American Political Puppet Show? Well there’s no need to wonder. Just […]
So how is our Pagan “conservatism” and America worship working out for us? How’s that 40+ year “pro-life commitment” from the GOP panning out? (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to murder children. Repent accordingly.) How’s that GOP/”conservative” defense of “family values” playing out? (See: Of course Jeb Bush is “fine” with […]
As if a witch leading Iowa legislators in prayer last week wasn’t comically tragic enough, the weekend followed up by treating us to the official launch of Hillary 2016. Adding some interesting zing to the Hillary launch was what some have called an “astounding typo”. Apparently, in promotion of her Big Day, the official Hillaryland press release phrase that included the line: “fought children […]
Howdy All, I hope that this post finds each of you well and that the Lord is moving you even in this moment toward deeper adoration, pursuit, and application of His nature. As many of you know, these past couple of weeks have been extraordinarily busy for me at my day job as a Legislative […]
In light of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission of Jesus Christ (see: Matthew 28), the present condition of the American culture can be rightly described as a “report card” for the professing Christian church in America. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore […]
Why Bruce Jenner is not “transitioning into a woman” and secular conservatism is not “transitioning into Christianity”.
Sometimes, if you’re not in the right place, things like Drudge Report headlines can be really depressing. Or really inspiring. Or a mix of the two. This week we got an added dose of “really creepy” to go with depressing in the form of a link to People magazine’s story covering the ongoing degenerative mutation […]
What if Americans overwhelmingly chose Christians to represent them in government? What if the United States federal government from the very tippy top on down was overwhelmingly comprised of Christians? Well guess what? It is! Yessiree, it’s true: According to a recent survey by Pew Research, nearly 92% of the incoming United States Congress is Christian. How […]
With another election year November in the books, American Christians are well served to remind ourselves and the rest of the world (especially the proud American part) that Jesus Christ isn’t running for anything. Never has. Never will. He doesn’t need your vote (or anything else). Jesus is King. Jesus is Lord. Jesus is God. He […]
I must admit to having had a giddy good time of it last night, watching Democrat after Democrat fall. It was an absolute blast. Even better, as a Tennessee resident who had the opportunity to support the “Yes on 1” campaign, it was thrilling and gratifying to see that amendment pass, allowing for my Bible-belt […]
So here we go again… Tomorrow is Election Day in America. Republicans are expected to do very well, almost assuredly re-taking the Senate and extending their majority lead in the US House of Representatives. But will this mean the end – or even the beginning of the end – of Socialism in America? Nope. […]
The Bible is loaded with foundational statements that are bizarre, offensive and often quite disgusting to the unbelieving ear. We are commanded to “eat Christ’s flesh and drink His blood”. We are told that He is “the bread of life”, “the Word made flesh”, and that He is “the way, the truth, and the life” personified. […]
Remember when all the really bad hypotheticals were still hypotheticals? Ah, those were the good ol’ days…days when America was merely on the verge of moral implosion, heading toward the brink of socio-economic collapse, and so on. Now we’re there. We have imploded morally and we are on the brink of total socio-economic darkness. The really bad hypotheticals of just a generation past – at least most of them – aren’t hypothetical anymore. (click on the above graphic or headline link to read the article)
What if I told you that the southern U.S. border crisis, the pending U.S. invasion of Syria, the ongoing murderous rampage of ISIS/Islamic State in Iraq, and the pending eruption of similar acts right here in the U.S. were all clearly and purposefully connected? Well, if you’re like me, you might be depressed (or […]
Ever wonder how it is that most “conservative Christians” have been so successfully morphed into enthusiastic tools to help bring about an increasingly socialistic, Orwellian State? Ever wonder why it is that many so-called conservatives in America are now openly socialistic in practice when it comes to everything from Social Security and Medicare to Medicaid […]
1. All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Jesus…right now. The living Lord of creation was not at all vague when He tasked His people with the Great Commission before flying into the clouds: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go […]
You’d have to turn pretty hard and firmly away from the glaring clarity to miss the connection – the near-perfectly synchronized harmony – between Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour stop in Nashville last night and the political scene unfolding on Primary Election Night across the “Great State of Tennessee”. All the dots are there, so close that they barely need to […]
For those of you hoping to find validation for leftist progressive causes or worldviews here after reading (and perhaps smiling at) the title of this post, lemme save you some time and say plainly from the get go: Not. Gonna. Happen. Not at all. The manner in which leftist progressives passionately wage their futile, pouty […]
Confessions of a Stupid Elephant (Sample Chapter from “Stupid Elephant Tricks – The Other Progressive Party’s War on Christianity”)
Is my vote honoring to my God?
Why Settle for the Lesser Evil? (Sample Chapter from “Stupid Elephant Tricks – The Other Progressive Party’s War on Christianity”)
“Why Settle for the Lesser Evil?” Now there’s a campaign slogan you don’t see every day, at least not yet. (continued)
In an article appearing in today’s Telegraph, advisors close to President Obama were said to be “shocked and angered” by a recent speech given by General Stanley McChrystal.
“The relationship between President Barack Obama and the commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan has been put under severe strain by Gen Stanley McChrystal’s comments on strategy for the war.
Somebody on the international advance team forgot to dispense the Kool-Aid, and for the first time in my life, I am proud of the IOC.
In what the Associated Press called, “one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down by the International Olympic Committee”, the city of Chicago was eliminated in the first round of votes cast to decide the host of the 2016 Olympics. “Even Tokyo, which had trailed throughout the race, did better — eliminated after Chicago in the second round,” the story continued.
Apparently, ACORN just didn’t have enough time to mobilize.
On April 29th, 2004, Canada’s governor general signed into law a measure that criminalized public expression in opposition to homosexual behavior, officially categorizing some orthodox Christian beliefs, when verbalized publically, as “hate speech”.
Welcome to the hopey, changey world of tolerance and inclusiveness, Perez Hilton style.
Every protest of the “progressive” agenda is fundamentally fueled by pervasive racism in America…or so the Liberal Inquisition would have you believe. Any expression of even the slightest suspicion regarding President Obama, Obamacare, Obama pals like Charlie Rangel or ACORN is immediately tagged as racially motivated.
Every made thing has a beginning. Many good and thoughtful discussions rightly begin with a definition of terms. As I hope and pray that this blog will fall into the “good and thoughtful” category for many if not most of its readers, I think it only proper to begin here today by clearly defining the […]
