Here we go again. In almost on every culture war issue that I can recall spanning the course of the last several decades, the Federal judiciary seems to always step in at the last moment to thwart the democratically expressed will of the American people. For example…
With the election and inauguration of a new presidential administration, Americans everywhere are asking the question, “What does the future hold?” Which direction will this new administration take America? To this end, I enjoyed my recent interview on the Jan Markell radio program, Olive Tree Ministries, to discuss these important issues. The session is entitled, And the Government Shall Be On His Shoulders. The first half of the hour-long broadcast is with White House correspondent Bill Koenig where he sounds a note of optimism concerning positive developments that he sees now taking place in the new Trump Administration. The second half of the broadcast is Jan’s interview with me as we discuss God’s ultimate plan for the future. Here, we focus on the subject of the future millennial kingdom and what the Bible has to say about this important matter. We hope that these conversations will encourage you in these troubled times. You can both listen to and/or download the entire radio broadcast (which ran nation-wide on Saturday Jan. 28) at the below link. God bless you.
Voting seems to be on everyone’s mind these days as our national Presidential election looms ever closer. In just two months, among many other important electoral issues, we will be deciding who the next President of the United States will be.
What would most likely get me the most accolades from my conservative friends is to write a blog piece criticizing this week’s Democratic National Convention. After all, we are routinely told by pseudo-conservatives that we all need to rally behind the Republican Nominee, unify the party, and defeat Hillary Clinton in November. She is the personification of all evil, as the new Dinesh D’Souza movie Hillary’s America appropriately and accurately argues. However, the Democrats and their predictably outrageous behavior this week is not the real story here. The Democrats kicked conservatism (and authentic Christianity for that matter) out of their party a long time ago. Criticizing the Democratic Party is too easy of a target. Finding a conservative Democrat today, such as the late Robert Casey or Zel Miller, is like trying to find an animal on the endangered species list. However, the real story here, for anybody who actually desires to see the evidence, is how the Republican Party, at least at the national level, is now also going very clearly in the direction of the Democratic Party in terms of purging and ostracizing conservatism from its ranks. In order to validate the statement, one need look no further than how the Republican Party treated Ted Cruz at last week’s Republican National Convention. When all the facts are considered, the Republican Party establishment last week engaged in nothing less than a true smear job against Ted Cruz.
As most Americans are aware, this week FBI Director James Comey opted to not help prosecute former Secretary State and presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in spite of the fact that Clinton recklessly and irresponsibly both housed and conducted official government business on her private email servers.
If you were (or are) a Ted Cruz supporter, by now you have no doubt been given “the lecture.” It is the same lecture we conservatives consistently receive every four years around this time. The lecture, usually delivered by a sanctimonious and self-appointed fellow “conservative” Republican goes something like this: “Gee, I am really sorry […]
Ted Cruz Is Not a Natural Born Citizen? The Republican Party now has the first opportunity it has had since Ronald Reagan of nominating a true conservative as its Presidential candidate. Should Senator Ted Cruz win the Republican nomination, Americans, in the general election, will have an actual choice between a limited government, constitutional conservative in Ted Cruz and a pro-big government liberal in Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic party nominee.
Can you slow down the progress of evil? I believe we can do that, simply by being the salt and light that God called us to be, and being good stewards over the many things He’s given us to be stewards over. One of the things that the Christian evangelical church has not been a good steward over is the ballot box. The statistics on this are really depressing.

I had originally intended to write a series of posts explaining why Republican voters should select Ted Cruz in the upcoming primaries and reject Donald Trump. My working title for the series was going to be “Why We Must Choose Cruz and Dump Trump.” However, after a conversation with my wife the other evening, I […]
