In America, you should be free to disagree. But under a new form of tyranny, that is no longer the case. The left is saying in effect, “Do it our way or we’ll see you in court.” In the new America, the left is on its way to creating a climate where you have freedom—as long as you abide by the prevailing politically correct ethos. We are seeing this […]

Ted Cruz is beginning to surge significantly in the polls in Iowa. Surely the evangelicals in Iowa are the key factor. Already, some of the political pundits are writing him off, likening him to Barry Goldwater, the libertarian-leaning firebrand, who was soundly defeated by Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Goldwater lost by a landslide. But, by the same token, Ronald Reagan won by landslides in 1980 and in 1984. And Reagan […]

A relative plans to come down to Miami in January to run the marathon. He called me recently and asked, “Hey, Jerry, am I going to be able to run in the streets of Miami? I hear from Obama that because of climate issues, the streets there are flooded, even with fish!” He won’t need big boots to wade through it all, since the president’s characterization of South Florida was […]

Killing in the name of being pro-life is an oxymoron. I said as much 15 years ago on Bill Maher’s TV show back when it was on ABC. Every Christian and every pro-life leader I know stands four square against what alleged shooter Robert Lewis Dear did on Friday at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood. As of this writing, his motives are unclear at best. The first victim killed was […]

As we get ready to celebrate another Thanksgiving, there’s one more thing to be grateful to God for—the U.S. Constitution and the political freedom it has brought. What many people don’t realize is the link between the Pilgrims, authors of our Thanksgiving tradition, and our nation’s founding document. When the founding fathers sat down in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 at the Constitutional Convention, they had almost 150 years […]

Note: this column was sent out, as is, on November 11, 2 days before Paris. It applies that much more. Europe is on the eve of changing forever. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have been leaving the tumult of the Middle East and Northern Africa to stream into Europe. One report estimates that three million more refugees are yet to come. This could mean the Islamization of Europe. Many demographers […]

I remember many years ago there was a bumper sticker that asked, “What do you choose when you’re pro-choice?” In reality, most “pro-choice” advocates often push one choice to be available and exercised—the choice to terminate a baby’s life via abortion. And now if the liberal legislature and governor in California have their way, the promotion of the choose-abortion message will be spread even further. Last month, Governor Jerry Brown […]

A Pew Research Poll released last week reports that fifty-nine percent of Americans see science and religion in conflict. But they also found that, “highly religious Americans are less likely than others to see conflict between faith and science.” I’m not a scientist, and I don’t play one on TV. But it’s amazing to me to see how some scientists like to claim that somehow science has disproven God. Meanwhile, […]

It has been said that “religion is box office poison.” Mel Gibson disproved that 11 years ago with The Passion of the Christ. But what about Noah? What about Exodus: God and Kings? They did badly, but they were not faithful to the Bible—neither in letter nor spirit. Meanwhile low budget Christian films made by a church from Georgia show over and over that religion is not box office poison. […]

[This photo by Jerry Newcombe shows Harry Mihet speaking at a church breakfast in May 2015.] Every week there is a new story of Judeo-Christian values under fire. A high school football coach in trouble for saying prayers. A Christmas program at school that dares to mention the reason for the season. A Christian baker being sued for being unwilling to violate her conscience. The move to censor God from […]
