In Loving Memory of Anne Kennedy-Born, July 2, 1925; Died, May 16, 2017 Mrs. Anne Kennedy was a faithful servant of the Lord. She labored alongside her husband, Dr. D. James Kennedy, for decades. In fact, when they first came to minister at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 1959, the congregation was meeting at McNab Elementary School. Mrs. Kennedy was the pianist and the choir leader. She sort of was the […]

I must confess that I do not agree very often with Oprah Winfrey, because I find that she tends to push people away from faith in Jesus Christ, not toward it. But I was impressed with a statement she made over the weekend—a statement that echoes one of Jesus’ teachings. The Daily Mail from the UK (5/13/17) had a headline, “’Having a closet full of shoes doesn’t fill up your […]

The House passed (217-213) a new bill to help repeal Obamacare on Thursday, May 4, 2017, the American Health Care Act (the AHCA). It is said that President Trump’s personal persuasion of many Congressmen helped this to pass. Now the ball goes to the Senate. Ironically, Obamacare is officially known as the “Affordable Care Act.” What an Orwellian title. Obamacare has literally made health care unaffordable for millions of Americans. […]

“Liberal censorship” is technically an oxymoron. But today liberal censorship is a common reality. Where once free speech reigned on college campuses and in other secular institutions (or at least it was so thought), today you have the totalitarianism of political correctness. Say the wrong thing, and you may be fired. Dissenting Justice Samuel Alito said after the Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision in June 2015: “I assume that those […]

A good man has been suspended. Again. Ultimately he’s a victim of judicial activism—of judges making things up from the bench and saying it’s what our Constitution requires. The so-called “Ten Commandments judge,” Roy Moore won election as the chief justice of Alabama for the second time in 2012. Here’s a timeline of his suspension: November 7, 2006. 81 percent of Alabama voters vote on a state constitutional amendment that […]

[Photo of Alexandria, Egypt, sight of a recent church bombing] As we all know, on Palm Sunday, two bombings at Coptic Churches in Egypt killed nearly 50 persons and injured 120 others.  I heard about two of my relatives-in-law, who were near enough to hear and feel the blast at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria. Even though they had returned for a vacation in their native Alexandria and had even […]

Recently (3/31/17), the New York Times had an article by David Brooks with a title that caught my attention: “The Strange Persistence of Guilt.” Why do we feel guilty and what can be done about it? I’m writing during Holy Week 2017, and as a Christian I’m convinced that Good Friday and Easter Sunday hold the solution to removing guilt. Our society is moving away from our Judeo-Christian roots at […]

[Photo of Lee Strobel-2017-courtesy of D. James Kennedy Ministries] Atheist Lee Strobel served as the legal affairs editor for The Chicago Tribune, having graduated from Yale Law School. But his wife, Leslie, went to church one time. To win his wife back to their blissful state of unbelief, Strobel went on a quest to use his investigative journalist skills to debunk Christianity once and for all: “No resurrection, no Christianity.” […]

I had the privilege to co-write with Dr. Mark Beliles a book about the true faith of Thomas Jefferson. It’s called “Doubting Thomas: The Religious Life and Legacy of Thomas Jefferson” (MorganJames, 2014). One of the things the book provides ample evidence for is that Jefferson was not a disbeliever in Christianity throughout his life. The notion that Thomas Jefferson was a life-long skeptic is a myth. It can be disproved, […]

Last week, Khalid Masood, a British-born Jihadist, ran over innocent people in London on the bridge close to Big Ben and then stabbed a police officer to death, before being killed by police. Where is Khalid Masood’s soul right now? Presumably, he thought he was taking a short-cut to Paradise. After 9/11, I once asked Christian leader Dr. D. James Kennedy this question: “Islamic militants believe that suicide missions give […]
