[Photo by Jerry Newcombe, the southern coast of Norway] The results of a new study were announced this week, and they are consistent with previous findings. The five million or so people who live in the Scandinavian country of Norway are among the happiest on earth. Writing for Reuters (3/20/17), Patricia Reaney noted: “Norway displaced Denmark as the world’s happiest country in a new report released on Monday” in a […]

Planned Parenthood does not have a good record when it comes to telling the truth. First, they used to boast about the mammograms they provide for patients. As it turns out, there’s not one mammogram offered in any of the Planned Parenthood facilities. No, not one. Then they boasted about their prenatal care services. Planned Parenthood president Cecil Richards said in 2011, “Prenatal care—these are the kinds of services that […]

If you comment on the novel/movie, The Shack, you’re bound to get strong opinions, either pro or con. The Shack deals with Mack, a man who has suffered a horrible loss (the murder of his little daughter), which he discovered in a shack. In a (spoiler alert) dream sequence, he returns to that shack; and “God” in three persons meets him there. This encounter leads to an inner healing, where […]

For example, here is an entry under Jefferson calling for a day of fasting and prayer. Up until 1774, the Jeffersons worshiped at Clear Mount Church but then switched to the new Forge Church (both served by Rev. Clay). The Forge Church was chosen by Jefferson and fellow-Burgess John Walker as the location for a 1774 special Fast Day service they requested on July 23. In a letter they sent “to the Inhabitants of […]

Another Oscar awards ceremony has come and gone. Trump-bashing from all the limousine liberals was front and center. However, all politics aside, is there evidence that God is at work in the cinema? There certainly are a growing number of Christian-based movies popping up in movie theatres. Most of these are independently produced and independently released. Meanwhile, the most-watched film of all time is based directly on the Gospel of […]

Here’s a variation of a joke I heard recently that is circulating among conservatives. The pope and Trump were out on a ship and suddenly a gust of wind causes the pontiff’s hat to fly several feet away from the boat on surface of the water. Trump gets out of the boat and walks on water to retrieve the miter. On a nearby boat are members of the media. The […]

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 […]
