This November, for some Christians, personal holiness will dictate a protest vote against Donald Trump. Is this really conscience, or something darker? Over my years as a believer, I’ve seen personal holiness measured in strange ways. One Sunday morning, after my wife was introduced to a member of the praise team as a “baby Christian,”..

Christians who lament the “the false god of politics” may be worshiping a different kind of prostitution.. Idolatry, in our time, wears a much more pleasant Sunday dress than she did 3,000 years ago. She wouldn’t dare put on those old, blood stained robes of Molech. If Hillary Clinton asked her supporters to bow down..
I was talking with an evangelical friend the other day. His elderly parents are literally on the street, walking around Southern California pushing a shopping cart. This seemed odd, because my friend is pulling down some hefty numbers — well into the mid six figures mark. I asked him if he could help his parents..
Clinical Comfort for Erick Erickson and others suffering from Trump Averse Syndrome Trump-Averse syndrome has many incarnations, but for a few pundits, the behavior calls to mind the hilarious apoplexy of Herbert Lom’s Chief Inspector Dreyfus in the Pink Panther. Upon hearing a positive Donald headline, the Trump-averse coffee-spewer will start twitching, and fretting, and..
“Hey, can I get some help with the groceries?” “Love to, but I’m a citizen of heaven. I’m not really even here.” Let’s just take a look, folks, at a few of our problems, here on this earthly plane — as we’re working out our Citizen of Heaven obligations. Last night, and the night..

Mea culpa. I have to come clean. Try to learn something from my mistakes. I am hard on some of you #NeverTrumpers, but I was once something like you — a dedicated, self-satisfied, high conscience loser, waiting for America to catch up with my standards. It goes way back to 1972, when my mom had..
I wrote about the strange martyrdom of #NeverTrump crowd the other day. They could be thrashing and screaming in the Niagra River, approaching the falls, hearing the thunder in the distance, and if Donald Trump was piloting a lavish, gold-canopied Trump cocktail cruiser and throwing out a life-preserver, they would look around for another option..
I’m pretty sure I know who you #NeverTrump people are. You are people of some faith, most likely. You are trying to make a living, and you are annoyed that a growing class of people don’t even care about making a living–and you make those coasting privileges possible. You couldn’t believe the America you love..
People wonder why I attend a house church. Isn’t it obvious? Blogger Matt Walsh is upset with Christians in South Carolina, for voting Donald Trump in big numbers, but we should all ask ourselves the question: why would we expect anything else? Why would we expect self-identified Christians to be sophisticated policy thinkers? Why would..
