The Founders arrived at America’s shores in the 17th century with an unshakeable faith, forged by persecution for “non-conformity, and the religious agitations and conflicts in Germany by Luther, in Geneva by Calvin, and in Scotland by Knox. The blood and persecution of martyrs became the seed of both the church and the state. They were trained in stormy times, in order to prepare them to elaborate and establish the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty and of just systems of civil government.”Thus, “Our forefathers in faith did not retreat from involvement in society and politics. They did not turn...Read More
WASHINGTON – In a stunning upset, Mark Harris defeated Rep. Robert Pittenger Tuesday night in North Carolina’s 9th District primary. Harris, a former pastor of a mega-church in Charlotte, is one of many candidates across the country with a ministerial background. One of his staunchest supporters is David Lane, founder of the American Renewal Project, an organization that aims to encourage and equip pastors to run for office with the goal of affecting the culture.

A few weeks ago we wondered how March for Our Lives could have managed to organize almost at once some 800,000 gun-control protesters [only 10% of the marchers were students] in Washington, DC. Equally peculiar was that students apparently had some ‘loose change’ on hand to underwrite the multi-million-dollar budget. Truth be told, it can be safely assumed that high-school students neither planned the event nor took care of the expenditure. Secular anti-gun advocates and media elites did, playing the students as pawns. Another matter that bears repeating is the question why Christians are closing their eyes rather than...Read More
Never mind Fox. Trump’s most reliable media mouthpiece is now Christian TV. [www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/04/22/trump-christian-evangelical-conservatives-television-tbn-cbn-218008] “When ‘Huckabee’ made its debut on TBN [Trinity Broadcasting Network] last fall, it immediately became the network’s highest-rated show, with more than a million viewers for a typical episode. Unlike every other show the network has produced, it is overtly political and squarely focused on current events. It has a variety component, with musical guests and comedians, and Huckabee occasionally breaks out his own bass guitar on stage. But in its six months on the air, Huckabee has also interviewed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump-defending...Read More
“Usurping power is the anarchist’s aim, in order to control resources and to seize ideological supremacy.” We may start to wonder about the role of public education. Is it to demand of children, who are trying to master their ABCs, that they now also study “the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the country’s history?” The waning influence of Christians in the public square is shocking. Illinois lawmakers advance bill requiring schools to teach LGBT history. Elevating homosexual Americans, as pagan Secularism strives to do, to the same plane as African Americans, Hispanic Americans...Read More
