Ben Shapiro is a journalist, political commentator, and by almost every standard, a very brilliant man. He is a well-educated and intelligent man. He is very bold and brave in that he is willing to publicly debate issues, and he is correct about many things. However, Ben Shapiro is a Jew, not just by blood, but he seems to believe in Jewish, religious thought. This … Continue reading Ben Shapiro and Baseless Politics
The current drama on T.V. screens everywhere is an all new set of protests against President Trump. Trump recently signed an executive order restricting people in certain countries from immigrating to America. The decision has sparked national outrage, and people are protesting in cities all over the nation. I will admit, the title of this blog might be considered click-bait. The purpose of this blog is … Continue reading Christians and Trump’s Immigration Ban
It is important for Christians to be wise as they view the cultural landscape and begin to make predictions as to what is coming down the pike. And unfortunately, most accurate assessments yield a lot of trash. Specifically, I wanted to draw our attention to some very bigoted and terrifying thoughts from the new Daily Show host, Trevor Noah. Before I begin, I want to … Continue reading Trevor Noah’s Terrifying Thoughts About Racism
The day all Americans have been waiting for has finally arrived. The day after election day. This means the election is finally over. As most everyone knows, Donald Trump won, and will be the next POTUS. By way of damage control, I wanted to extend brief thoughts on his victory. How did this happen? What’s the good news? What is the bad news? One night is … Continue reading President Trump: 2016 Election Damage Control
The Christian Response Regardless of your views on soon-to-be President Trump, all of us Christians have explicit commands and expectations for the next four years. 1) Care Please do not accuse any Christians who deeply care about the election of not believing in the sovereignty of God. A Christian can greatly care about the government he is under without having to be accused of … Continue reading 5 Ways Christians Respond to the Presidential Election
Colin Kaepernick has recently created a national media firestorm. If you have not heard, he has recently decided to no longer stand during the pre-game National Anthems. His reason for doing so is that he feels blacks in America are being systematically oppressed, and therefore, it goes against his conscience to show respect for the nation’s flag that is doing that, or at least turning … Continue reading To Stand Or Not to Stand?
I have written before on the dangers of Christians who think politically and not biblically. Issues in this country tend to take the hard sides of Liberal VS Conservatives. The danger can be a kind of political persuasion where Christians end up fearing political treason more than biblical infidelity. Peter tells the civil magistrate of his day “we must obey God rather than men,” and … Continue reading Columbus Day: Christianity, Christopher and Children
The Irony We live in a nation of unbelievers who, on one hand, hate Columbus for his genocide, yet, they turn around and vote to keep genocide “safe and legal.” Assuming Columbus was a mass murdering lover of genocide, he doesn’t hold a candle to 60 million. Our nation is a nation of genocide still. We still love to slaughter innocent people. Only now … Continue reading Columbus Day & Darwin
Today marks the 241st annual 4th of July celebration. On this day, it seems fitting to ask the question, what exactly are we celebrating today? Americans everywhere (on the streets, in their homes, on social media) will be decked out in red white and blue. Our flags will be waving, but what exactly do we see when we see an American flag waving? Or perhaps … Continue reading Independence…From What?
Party in the U.S.A Today is America’s 4th of July celebration. Americans everywhere (on the streets, in their homes, on social media) will be decked out in red white and blue. There is much to be grateful for as an American. My very freedom to write this post comes from the sacrifices of brave Americans who fought for it. And our troops, all who are … Continue reading The Next Fight for Independence
