Recently a group of abortion advocates, as part of the National Network of Abortion Funds, set out to solicit people to speak out on behalf of abortion through their personal stories. They call it: “We Testify—Storytellers Rise Up for Roe.” That got me thinking about how there are many women who could testify to the exact opposite of what the abortion advocates want to hear. Having an abortion turned out […]

[Photo of Phil Robertson courtesy CRTV] I saw an ad recently for the new television program of Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame. It airs on CRTV (the same network Mark Levin and Michele Malkin appear on). It’s called “in the Woods with Phil,” and he’s “declaring open season on political correctness.” I did an interview with Phil Robertson a few months ago for my radio show, where he commented on […]

In mid-December, a science editor for BuzzFeedUK, Kelly Oakes, tweeted, “All I want for Christmas is full communism now.” Once this tweet was noticed, she withdrew it and issued an apology. A month earlier, another BuzzFeedUK staffer, Blake Montgomery, had responded to a tweet from President Trump. The president had declared November 7, 2017 as “National Day for the Victims of Communism.” Montgomery then tweeted, that “victims of Communism” was […]

Just in time for Christmas 2017, an atheist group put up a billboard in Dallas with the message: “Just skip church. It’s all fake news!” This is right next to a manger scene. Well, certainly the manger scene with the shepherds and the wise men together at the same time reflects poetic license. The Bible tells us the shepherds came first. The wise men would have come long after that. […]

The greatest command, said Jesus, is that we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Sometimes missing today among many professing Christians is the emphasis on the mind. A great evangelical theologian died December 14, 2017, R. C. Sproul (rhymes with role), the founder of Ligonier Ministries. And I think he exemplifies the notion of loving God with our mind, as well as our other faculties. Even […]

Bad news gets press. “If it bleeds, it leads.” Good news tends not to spread as well and as far. We all know about the horrible events of August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, where protests and counter-protests over the city’s plan to tear down a statue of Robert E. Lee ended in violence and a woman’s death. It was a low spot in the year. It was a low spot […]

[Churchill’s remarks notwithstanding, the author never ceases to shamelessly show pictures of his grandchildren.] An acquaintance once asked Winston Churchill if he had shown the statesman a picture of his grandchild. Churchill replied, saying something like: “No. And I have forgotten to thank you for that.” I must confess to being an overly satisfied grandparent. It is an unbelievable blessing and joy. But tragically, tens of millions of fellow Americans […]

Many Americans, declares an article in the New York Times (11/24/17), are “Leaning on the Stars to Make Sense of the World.” Personally I’d rather “lean” on the One Who made the stars to make sense of the world. He has revealed Himself not only in the stars, but much more clearly in His Word. The NYT.com article states: “One appeal is that [the stars] offer some order in an […]

With the holiday of Thanksgiving recently past, it’s good to consider what the Pilgrims endured and how they thanked God through it all. I just finished reading a phenomenal book on the group of dissident Christians who founded Plymouth in 1620. Historian Rod Gragg wrote The Pilgrim Chronicles: An Eyewitness history of the Pilgrims and the Founding of Plymouth Colony (Regnery History, 2014). I thought I knew a lot about […]

2017 may go down as the year that sexual scandals rocked America. The thing about a charge of rape, said 17th century British judge Sir Matthew Hale, is that it ‘‘is an accusation easily to be made and hard to be proved, and harder to be defended by the party accused”—even if that party is innocent. It is an excruciating dilemma. Most such crimes occur in private. And yet false […]
