On January 22, 1973, with the bang of a gavel, seven men in Washington, D.C. consigned tens of millions of future Americans to an incredibly premature death. These Americans were condemned to die before they were born by what one dissenting justice, Byron White, called “an act of raw judicial power.” I refer, of course, to the companion abortion decisions of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. […]

With school back in full session around the country, it’s interesting to think about how the Bible is often banned directly or indirectly in schools. The 2016 PureFlix movie, “God’s Not Dead 2,” dealt with that issue so well. Yet the Bible gave birth to schools for the masses. There would be no public schools without the sacred book. The first law to mandate compulsory education for children in British […]

[Satellite image of divided Korea at night. The north is all dark except for the capital city. But South Korea is brimming with light.] There’s barely a week that goes by without North Korea being in the news. It seems that the Stalinist dictator there enjoys rattling his saber, even threatening America from the other side of the globe. Divided Korea provides one of the greatest object lessons in the […]

[Photo of Ricardo Davis, quoted in this piece, by Jerry Newcombe on location in Atlanta] A headline on Drudge (8/21/17) declares that Google is teaming up with “liberal groups to snuff out conservative websites.” Apparently the search-engine giant is partnering with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and other left-wing groups to document and publicize “hate crimes and events” in America. After the terrible events in Charlottesville, any God-fearing, rational […]

[Photo by Jerry Newcombe taken in 2012 in Charlottesville of Robert E. Lee statue] On a sunny morning in the summer of 2012, I visited Charlottesville, Virginia (Jefferson’s hometown). My host was a local pastor, Dr. Mark Beliles. He and I were working on a book (Doubting Thomas) on the faith (and sometimes lack thereof) of our third president. Beliles brought me to two parks downtown on that peaceful day and […]

Jane Hodgson, who died about a decade ago, was celebrated in liberal circles as a pioneer of abortion rights. She was a master at justifying the killing of human life in the womb. Writing about her for the National Right to life News Today (reproduced in lifenews.com, 8/3/17), Dave Andrusko quoted some of her rationalizations: “[T]here is a medical indication to abort a pregnancy where it is not wanted.” “I […]

I attended an unusual wedding this past weekend. The minister presided over the wedding in a cow patch. We were driven to the pasture on a hay ride. The best man (my son) was barefoot, and the bride wore cowboy boots. But at least this millennial couple was getting married. I guess that puts them in a minority among their peers these days—sadly. “Americans Aren’t Getting Married,” declares a Drudge […]

There’s an item in the news that caught my attention and made me wonder if Bible prophecy is possibly being fulfilled in our time. Having written a book almost twenty years ago that compares the major views Christians hold on the return of Christ, I think we must be wary of “newspaper exegesis.” Don’t read into every current event some aspect of the return of Christ. Nonetheless, the book of […]

A radical solution is being proposed by those promoting the theory that man is to blame for climate change. Their solution? Have fewer children. Humankind is where the problem lie…supposedly. Writing for The Washington Times (7/13/17), Valerie Richardson notes, “Those who want to get serious about tackling climate change should forget about recycling and have fewer babies, based on the results of a newly released study.” Citing a paper published […]

[Photo of the SPLC by Jerry Newcombe] Perhaps, the most overused word in America is “hate.” All you have to do is accuse someone who disagrees with you of hate, and that’s it: guilty as charged. Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean even famously said recently that “hate speech” is not protected by the First Amendment. This is like the modern equivalent of the horrible anti-witch hysteria in Salem in […]
