The False Witness – Libations for Liberty

Mark Twain has never struck me as a go to source for spiritual guidance. But the quote attributed to him above makes a good point. Telling a lie and bearing false witness are not exactly the same thing. A false witness is certainly a lie, but all lies are not a false witness. The size of the fish that got away might be a lie, but no real damage is done to others. I’m not justifying such lies, but a false witness is a whole different thing. There is a reason that the commandment to “not bear false witness...

Saving America is a spiritual task

“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...

Are pencils responsible for falling test scores?

The false religion of Secularism has scheduled its Mission Trip for November 6, 2018, Election Day. Progressive liberals – who worship abortion, same-sex marriage, gun control, euthanasia, big government, transgender bathrooms, and coercive redistribution of wealth – intend for secularists to run the table for the next millennium. March for Our Lives organizers estimated that some 800,000 protesters attended the gun-control spectacle in Washington, D.C. The march was a dry run for liberal’s get-out-the-vote effort in 2018. A more accurate name would have been ‘March for Your Guns’. Left-wing celebrities came out in droves: George and Amal Clooney, Kim...

Who is contending for religious liberty?

In our last Op/Ed we addressed a theological precept formulated by Arthur W. Pink: “It would indeed be strange if we apprehended how that on the one hand Canaan was a free gift unto Israel, which they entered by grace alone; and on the other, that they had to fight for every inch of it!” We reiterate that 21st-century Evangelicals must embrace it, and if we are to remain free, must do so without delay. God has placed us here to combat pagan Secularism. In his Gleanings From Joshua, Arthur W. Pink makes a resounding statement that has been largely overlooked by...

A Rahab Stands

Nancy Pearcey is a former agnostic who teaches at Houston Baptist University. Her new book, Love Thy Body, has as subtitle “Answering Hard Questions About Life and Sexuality.” In answering some of these hard questions, she writes: “Human life and sexuality have become the watershed moral issues of our age. The daily news cycle bombards us with stories related to sexuality, abortion, assisted suicide, homosexuality, and transgenderism. A secular orthodoxy is being imposed through virtually all the major social institutions: academia, media, public schools, Hollywood, private corporations, and the law. “The hookup mentality comes out of a Darwinian worldview...
