First: A “He said, He Said” Story.. In the event any of you are in the market for a good fresh dose of weapons-grade insanity, ponder the Nicholas Kuhnhausen story and the utterly bizarre way 48 Hours chose to tell it. It begins with the disappearance of 17 year old girl named Nikki, who is,..
Christ, The Word, The Church, The Republic
Even atheists should warm to the idea… Calm down. This will not be a defense of theocracy. My position here is fundamentally rooted in the American story itself, and the governing tools forged at Philadelphia in 1776. (“Christian Nationalism” is NOT “white nationalism,” by the way; people who make that claim don’t understand that Christianity..
Not a typo.. Our daughter, in her new kitchen, made us “sheet pan frittatas” yesterday. We took mimosas on the back porch, talked shop, watched our grandson, Silas, blowing bubbles, gave Mary a few presents, lazed on the lawn, napped, and parted. In the driveway, on the way out, Mary gave voice to the reality..
We tend to see equality of outcome as a sign of fair play, even spiritual holiness, but it’s the devil, not God, who longs for a brutal and boring equality.. Ponder the very foundations for a moment. In the very first chapter of the Bible, God declares a rigid hierarchy. Man is to have dominion..
The Wildly Popular Bible Teacher Lacks Depth.. There is much to be said for John MacArthur. He has a high view of scripture and he’s not afraid of being unpopular. After waffling a bit early on in the Covid crisis, he opened his church for worship and defied county and state mandates banning group worship. ..
Epstein’s victims: a metaphor for all of us.. It’s a heart-breaking, cruel and baffling picture: a dewy young woman– anxious to make her mark in the world–is promised the glories of high-society introductions, admission to elite universities, and professional advancement in a club that is chock full of billionaires and luminaries. And, by the way,..
It’s not really a child.. Seventy different “Pro-Life” organizations penned an open letter on the subject of criminalizing abortion this week. With the anticipated fall of Roe V. Wade, many states are proposing criminal penalties for providing or seeking an abortion. There has been a huge amount of disinformation purveyed by pro-abortion groups on this..
Lying For The Lord The epistle of James, throughout the centuries, has proven a challenge for even the most sincere Christians, (Martin Luther among them), because it puts faith to the test. If we agree we are saved by grace alone, through faith in Christ, then we would be wise to make sure our “faith”..
The Regularizing Influence: I was a nerdy grind in my late 1970s public high school, but the television was on quite a bit at home, with the usual cycle: afternoon re-runs of the Rifleman and Ozzie & Harriet, followed by evening news, a break for family dinner, a few mom-approved sitcoms and then, sometimes, nightly..
What my critics have in common.. The times in which we live: In the event we return to public health sanity across the globe someday, and my current outrage appears incomprehensible, I note at the outset that Australia has, at this writing, descended into public health totalitarianism, complete with mandatory apps designed to keep you..
