One of my favorite “viral videos” that circulates around the world through the Internet takes place in a food court in a mall, presumably in Canada. As people are eating and resting from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, suddenly a woman with a scarf on, who appears as an ordinary shopper, stands up and starts singing the “Hallelujah” Chorus. Clearly, this is a professional musician, who is soon […]

A leading military hospital was poised to implement an anti-Bible policy that would have been spiritually devastating. Thankfully, once the light was shone on the policy, common sense prevailed, and the policy was quashed. Since 1909, Walter Reed General Hospital in Washington, DC, has been caring for injured Army personnel. Later it was named Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Recently, they moved to Bethesda, Maryland and became Walter Reed National […]

Two thousand years ago, wise men (Magi—from which we get the word “magic”) from the East brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus. Christians have been giving gifts at Christmastime since then, and millions of others have joined in the merriment. But last Friday, Nov. 25, was an embarrassment. So-called “Black Friday,” the big shopping day right after Thanksgiving, was marked by mobs, occasional violence, and […]

Every Thanksgiving is an annual reminder of our nation’s Christian roots. The Pilgrims began the tradition, and Presidents Washington and Lincoln made it an official holiday. The details surrounding the Pilgrims were such that they had much to be grateful for. Here is just a sample. The Pilgrims were a small body of believers who secretly became a congregation in central England in 1606 when they formed a spiritual covenant […]

Sunday, November 13, 2011 has been designated as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. It is anticipated that congregations across the globe will be praying for those who suffer for the “crime” of believing in Jesus. Worldwide, about 200 million Christians are at risk, simply for being Christians. This is true in the dominant Muslim countries and the remnant Communist countries, e.g., China, North Korea, Vietnam, and […]

Marriage is becoming a joke in our society. Take the example of reality-TV star Kim Kardashian and her marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, which lasted all of 72 days. This has given great fodder to the late night comedians:  On The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, he remarked, “If two celebrities who barely know each other and get married just for a TV show can’t make it, […]

Would the Baptist minister, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., be pleased with the recently unveiled 450-foot memorial wall in Washington, D.C. dedicated to his memory? I doubt it because they left God out. His niece, Dr. Alveda C. King, doesn’t think so either. She is the president of King for America and is a lay spokesperson for the organization Priests for Life. In a press release dated October […]

Occupy Wall Street protesters have, of course, spilled over to all sorts of communities throughout the U.S. The Drudge Report recently highlighted a group from Portland, Oregon, Occupy Portland, which was protesting by playing their own rock ‘n roll song, proclaiming, “EXPLETIVE the USA.” Why do so many elites hate America? I remember reading once about Reagan and Gorbachev in America. As I recall the story, the two leaders saw […]

What happens when police lose part of their moral authority? Something like that has been happening in England in the last several years. And it could have been an important factor in their initial ineffectiveness a couple months ago in quelling some of the summer riots. A major part of the problem is hate crime laws. Hate crime laws may sound well-intentioned. But in reality they are like America’s failed […]

Now that the dust has settled from the memorials commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11, we can see what was included and what was excluded. I was pleased that the president read Scripture (from Psalm 46). I was displeased that the mayor of New York City chose not to invite any Christian clergyman to participate, as this would supposedly violate the separation of church and state. Never mind that the […]
