Is Genesis history? That is the title of an intriguing new film, hosted by Del Tackett, who created and hosted “The Truth Project” (for Focus on the Family), which was seen by some 12 million people worldwide. I spoke with Del Tackett on my radio show recently about this new movie. I asked him: Why does it matter? Some think God made the world through evolutionary processes. Who cares? He […]

[File photo from a protest at Berkeley] One of the greatest milestones in world history was March 4, 1797. Why? What happened then? America, under the guidance of the Constitution, transitioned from our first president to our second. George Washington stepped down, and the recently-elected John Adams stepped in. No bloodshed. No rioting in the streets. No town-hall meetings cancelled for fear of the speaker being torn limb from limb. Even […]

President Trump has hit a home run in his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch, who is described as fiercely committed to upholding the Constitution. Much of the opposition to Judge Gorsuch will come from those in favor of abortion rights. But as I have recently written in one of my columns—130 of which have now been compiled in my new book, The Unstoppable Jesus Christ: How Your Faith Can Triumph […]

We used to be “the me generation.” Now perhaps we’re the selfie generation—the generation that exalts me, my selfie, and I. One article on Botox treatment called ours the “selfie culture.” But what happens when selfies—photographs taken by you of yourself—can actually endanger you or others or even animals? For a few years now I have been saving stories about people getting hurt or killed because of their selfies. Lightning […]

Hundreds of thousands of women descended on Washington, DC and many major cities around the country the day after President Trump’s inauguration, to voice their displeasure with the new administration. That didn’t take long. But only those who are committed to abortion rights were allowed to participate. It has been widely reported that even feminist groups holding pro-life convictions, such as New Wave Feminists, were kicked out of the Women’s […]

[Photo by Jerry Newcombe of the Bible with which George Washington was sworn in on, NYC, April 30, 1789] With the inauguration of Donald Trump as our 45th president upon us, all the usual suspects from the militant atheist crowd have been trying to block the Bible from being used—a tradition that began with President Washington. Every president mentioned God in their inaugural address, even if speaking of the Lord […]

The Left is putting our lives at risk. Liberalism will not recognize the link between Islam and the recent spates of attacks the West is enduring—including the shooting in the Fort Lauderdale airport baggage claim, the truck-driving attack on Christmas shoppers in Berlin, or the Ohio State student who drove his car into a crowd and then stabbed other victims. I have personally flown many times in and out of […]

Oxford Dictionaries has named “post-truth” its word of the year for 2016. How fitting. Oxford says it’s “an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.’” In the last two months we have witnessed the inability of many to cope with truths they do not want to accept. Many on the left […]

Early in Handel’s Messiah come these enigmatic words: “Ev’ry valley shall be exalted, and ev’ry mountain and hill made low; the crooked straight and the rough places plain.” What do these words from Isaiah 40:4 actually mean? They refer to a constant theme of the Bible: those who humble themselves will be exalted. But those who exalt themselves will be humbled. The book of James puts it this way, “God […]

Manger scenes were routinely shown in public places before the anti-Christian crusade that the Supreme Court unleashed, starting in the 1960s and 1970s, with its anti-God-in-public type of decisions. Subsequently, the Supreme Court ruled in Lynch v. Donnelly (1984) in a case out of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, that if a manger scene was surrounded by enough reindeers and other secular symbols of the season, the government could allow it on […]

    Dr. Bob Barnes: “Dear Jerry: I was driving home and listening to your broadcast on Monday night, January 10, with the law professor from Notre Dame. In my opinion, that was your very best interview. I ended up listening to it all the way to the end.”
