The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court’s Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more […]

Covetousness as Idolatry

The Tenth of the Ten commands, Exodus 20:17. “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”  This speaks clearly to our whole society, which if you haven’t noticed is largely given over to this sin of covetousness. Consider the multi-billion dollar industry of Madison Avenue. It is devoted to manipulating people to desire things they probably Read more […]

The Politics of Covetousness

It is widely known that Americans are spending themselves into debt slavery. For example, Bloomberg business reported last September that consumer debt was at an all time high of $3.2 trillion with credit cards and auto loans leading the pack. “Spending on repairs and net used cars has barely budged… But the fact that spending seems to be coming at the expense of more debt suggests Americans are putting themselves in a riskier financial position… an increasing share of that debt finances Read more […]

Thinking About Lying

Lying has been making the headlines the past several weeks. We’ve seen NBC anchor Brian Williams suspended for lying about a wartime story as well as lying in a Hurricane Katrina report.  How about the Imposter’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, admits in a new book that Obama lied all along during his first-term election campaign about his position on sodomite un-marriage. He was for it all along, but lied to get black Christians to vote for him (which by the way they did in droves).  Read more […]

Green-Eyed Greed

I read of a short French film, illustrating the deadly nature of greed. It depicts an empty village and a stranger who entered this deserted town. “Where are all the people,” he wondered. All signs of life were there, nothing was locked, food was on the table, smoke curls from the chimneys, stores were open but there are no customers. He doesn’t understand, but he proceeds to take advantage of his opportunity to steal. Pretty soon he is too drunk and too giddy to realize that the villagers Read more […]

The Adultery Machine

You can’t consider the sin of adultery without thinking about no-fault divorce. It’s good to be back with you and into this New Year, the Year of our Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ, 2015. A friend of mine wrote a piece about the Supreme Court’s decisions last year, decisions that furthered the loss of liberty in our land. It was sad to read, but a powerful reminder of the greater destruction of our land, which that Court has engaged in not just for the past year but actually the past 58 years. Read more […]

Whatever Became of Adultery?

No one understands adultery because we live in a day when marriage has been reduced to a legal contract which is the least binding of all legal contracts. As this year, 2014, draws to a close let’s take time to reflect back on the past twelve months; its accomplishments and its challenges. For those of us who have run for office, there are some very powerful memories. As for me, one of those was the vitriolic response in the press to the idea I have taught for years, an idea held firmly Read more […]

The Duty to Defend Life

We have to remember our God-given obligation to defend life, especially at times when life gets treated as if it is cheap. When you study the history of the world, some of the most perilous times for any people are when a regime change takes place. For example, France experienced its most bloody century from the time of its godless revolution through the Napoleonic wars, the Republic, then back to Emperor, on to another republic, to the Commune and so forth. Every time there was a regime Read more […]

Anger Can Be Murder!

One of the most powerful emotions within our souls is anger. The sense I have is that the palpable level of anger in America is rising. “The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, Read more […]

Ferguson and The Sixth Commandment: Murder v. Manslaughter

The Bible makes distinctions about the sixth commandment. On the evening of November 24th in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ 2014, “after more than 3 months during which it met 25 times and heard 60 witnesses, a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri declined to indict Officer Darren Wilson on any of the five charges put forth by the prosecution ranging from second-degree involuntary manslaughter to first-degree murder in association with the death of unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown, who Read more […]

Jesus on Elder Care

With Social Security doomed, Jesus’ words on elder care are especially relevant to Christians today. Thursday is Thanksgiving, a time when traditionally families come together for a meal and hopefully to enjoy one another’s company. However, some financial analysts are predicting a war, here on the ground in America; a financial war between the generations, a war over how to pay, or even if to pay for the promises that have been made. It is “a showdown looming between the young and the Read more […]

Honoring Father and Mother

Both Father and Mother are God-given roles. Have you heard of the Canary in the coal mine? You know it is that allusion to caged canaries that miners would carry down into the mineshafts with them. If dangerous gases such as methane or carbon monoxide leaked into that shaft, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners. The death of the canary provided a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. Is there a canary in the coalmine for a country or for a society? I believe Read more […]
