There Goes Another One: Rainbow Capitulation

Aug 16, 2018

They are falling like flies. For various reasons, Christians, Christian leaders, Christian schools, Christian churches and Christian denominations are abandoning the biblical witness found throughout Scripture concerning human sexuality and running with the world’s godless and immoral agenda. Go figure.

The Deadly Fruit of Apostasy

Aug 7, 2018

Most folks don’t believe in apostasy anymore. That is because they no longer believe in sin, and they no longer believe in truth. If moral absolutes do not exist, then there can be no such thing as sin. And if

Just Who Is Being Provocative?

Hungary and Orban: Hope for the West

Aug 4, 2018

More than once when I have been with a group of concerned Christians and conservatives we have talked – only half in jest – about where we might go, given how bad things are getting. As Australia and so much

The Trans Assault on Everything

The Laughable and Lamentable Loony Left

Jul 27, 2018

The loons on the left are certifiable. They are unhinged, they are militant, and they are hate-filled. They are getting increasingly nutty, and increasingly militant and thuggish, with violence more and more replacing debate and reason. Just the other day

“But We Can’t Judge Unbelievers!”

Jul 25, 2018

Southern, the Media, the Left, and Orwell

Jul 21, 2018

The lamestream media coverage of the Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux tour down under is as good an example of how the truth-benders operate as you will get. Between what the radical ferals said (and did), and how the media

This Is How Free Speech Is Destroyed

Jul 20, 2018

Many enemies of the West and its values have sought to smash free speech and prevent differing points of view from being heard. This is typical of the radical left, and the examples of it are now endless. But of

Pink Apostates

Jul 14, 2018

There IS such a thing as apostasy, and there ARE such things as apostates. When folks deny key biblical truths and effectively call the Lord Jesus Christ a liar, they have become apostates. One way in which apostasy rears its

The Cultural Revolution 50 Years On

Jul 13, 2018

Answering Cheap Troll Attacks

Little House on the PC Prairie

Jul 8, 2018

OK, I admit: I have not read them, but millions of others have. The much-loved Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie novels are under attack by the PC censorship brigade. The books are deemed to be racist and

What Are We? Hetero or Homo?

Jul 5, 2018

As always, Christians must think carefully, clearly, and above all biblically, about all things. We must use our minds for the glory of God as we deal with the pressing issues of the day. A solid biblical worldview must inform
