But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 1 Peter 3: 14-16
In case you haven’t noticed, repentance isn’t exactly “a thing” here in ‘Merica.
‘Cause we’re clearly God’s favorite.
Without America, what would God do? What would He have to work with?
Not much, as far as Americans are concerned.
“When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.” ~ Putting It Simply, as...
Whatever the State can license, the State will weaponize to the benefit of the State.
Whatever the State can control, the State will use to secure and expand the power of the State.
Whatever the State is allowed to oversee or manage, the State will oversee and manage in a manner that facilitates...
Bruce Jenner. Bill Clinton. Donald Trump. America.
Rebels come and rebels go.
Wannabe empires rise and fall.
The Kingdom of God advances over and through ’em all, building on the smoldering ruins they leave behind after breaking themselves upon the unbreakable Law of the Christ that they will...
What is – or should be, anyway – the most glaring lesson of the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama/Trump era?
What should be the most obvious truth revealed by the manner in which DC has operated over the past several decades (if not over the past century and a half or so)?
Wanna drain the swamp?
I mean really drain the swamp.
Starting right now.
Contrary to popular opinion, it can be done.
Here are three simple (not to be confused with “easy” or “small”) guaranteed-to-work steps:
Back when the Trump Train was steaming through the Republican primaries last summer, we asked two questions:
Can overtly unbiblical power be seized and reliably used for good?
Or must it be destroyed?
The reason for asking had a whole lot to do with the fact that politically active professing...
Dinosaur media empires are dying.
Dinosaur business empires are dying.
Dinosaur political empires are dying.
But perhaps the most exciting (and important) news on the dino front is that dinosaur models of education are dying, too.
By God’s grace and right in the nick o’...
He thinks big, talks tough, and actually seems to believe in the inevitability of his victory. His gaggle of hangers-on and yes-men cheer him on and bask in the glow of his largeness, toughness, and perceived inevitability.
Then he gets popped in just the right place at just the...
One of the basic lies that we believe – and love – is the notion that we can have Jesus’ stuff without having Jesus.
Prosperity. / Peace. / Love. / Beauty. / Justice. / Security. / Law.
We actually think we can pursue these things in a legit manner apart from explicit subjugation to...
“. . . no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined,what God has prepared for those who love him.”
These oft repeated words from 1 Corinthians 2:9 (which are themselves quoted from Isaiah 64:4) are very familiar to Christians. While not quite attaining the greeting-card...
What is a boy?
What is a girl?
These days, nobody seems to know, particularly the “professionals” running the State-managed children’s education system in America. After many generations of immersion in a State-run, Corporate-managed approach to education lifted from the...
People love to pretend.
We love to pretend that we can be good without God.
Because pretending to have the ability to be good apart from God helps us to pretend that we can rightly understand and pursue things like law, art, politics, economics, and education apart from God.
Which all helps...
Another week, another war.
Welcome to 1984.
With the insanity of North Korea upon us, we are well served to at least pause long enough to notice that no matter the President, no matter the Congress, we are and have been for some time now an Orwellian Super State hell-bent on perpetual...
As we roll from last week’s story of the American Surveillance State spying on an American President-elect into this week’s story of the American Military Industrial Complex clawing its way to within talon’s grasp of securing yet another war on the...
For those of you looking for a deep dive into the dark, cobwebbed corners of conspiracy theory, this post is not for you. We’re not going to explore the potential secret codes hidden in the embroidery on George Washington’s Mason smock or the diabolical plans of the...
The means by which God often chooses to accomplish His purposes and bring glory to Himself often mystify, confuse, and even anger us. He frequently chooses to employ what seem to be very crude physical tools (all of which are His property to use as He sees fit, of course), the likes of which we...
Today in America, hundreds of American baby boys and girls will be openly, systematically and “legally” murdered. They will then often be “legally” dismembered and “legally” sold piecemeal to “legally” protected (and often taxpayer funded) ghouls.
In our home, these are valuable tools that we try to keep on hand. They’re each gifts from God that help me and my family better appreciate both the variety of material blessings that He’s given us, and the necessity of our using those things well.
Fear is the language of our day. It’s the defining theme of life, culture, and civilization in 2017 America and throughout the West.
Fear is how we got to where we are now as a people; it’s the means by which we’ve been led into political, legal, economic, and religious...
For all the talk and increasingly laughable American State manufactured propaganda aimed at selling us on the notion that we’re living in “the land of the free”, the increasingly obvious reality is that the fiction we’ve been sold bares little resemblance to...
