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
Is it okay to covet your neighbor’s property?
And then take some of it?
To spend on yourself?
In America, the answer is a loud and clear: Of course!
Especially if and when your neighbor has more stuff than you, and doubly so if they have a whole lot more than you. But even if they have...
How perfect is it that “the land of Lincoln” is leading the way in dramatically exposing the unsustainable evil at the foundation of the American economic system?
For those of you who haven’t heard yet, Illinois is teetering on the edge of default and/or bankruptcy.
Does your Pastor embrace the Gospel-fueled Great Commission?
Or does he not?
Is your Pastor all about the full life-, culture-, and civilization Gospel?
Or is his gospel something smaller.
As in: man-sized with no room for anything else.
Claiming to be a Christian does not make one a Christian. Few would disagree with this simple statement, though more seem to be inching (or flat out running) away from even this once obvious truth as our culture doubles down on an approach reality defined by emotion, subjectivity, and pet...
The formula is simple: Pride kills.
Repentance and submission to Christ saves – it saves people, cultures, and civilizations – while unrepentant pride kills the same people, cultures, and civilizations.
Those are the inescapable basics.
And yes, this applies to America.
So where are...
What happened to Star Wars?
How bad was Episode VII?
How much more damage will Disney do in Episode VIII?
Why should these things matter to Christians?
These are some of the questions we kick around in the latest post at the FBC video channel.
This is something of a follow-up to an article we...
Why should Christians care about economic justice? What has God said about economic justice? (Hint: The answers to these two questions are deeply connected.)
What has God said about our fiat economic system?
More specifically, what has He said about the US dollar, and what are we supposed to do about...
Lest there be any confusion, this is a direct response to an article posted at American Vision in which I was referenced indirectly and implicitly again and again and again in a hit piece that, while making precise references obviously aimed at yours truly, diligently refused to directly link,...
What happens when the State wages war on Mommy and Daddy?
What happens when the State assumes the role of Mommy and Daddy after killing Mommy and Daddy?
What happens when the State does the same to the church?
Put another way: What does it look like when the State purposefully supplants and absorbs...
Prideful, unrepentant leadership…leading prideful, unrepentant masses of Americans.
Apathetic, impotent American churches.
Unbiblical, authority- and discipline-despising movements masquerading as “true Christianity”.
Rampant State dependence and the open worship of America...
If you thought that something like a literal drag queen erotic dance performance at a public school talent show would be enough to get parents to yank their kids from public school, you’d be wrong.
Oh, but don’t worry, the parents in question were “horrified”. They were...
The stock market soars.
Home prices skyrocket.
Our military grows, both in size and scope of activity.
And we think that all is well…or at least better than it was yesterday.
Clearly we are in denial.
Denial of our addiction.
Denial of our dependence.
Denial of our bondage.
What is the purpose of unbelievers?
Thankfully, there are several clear answers to this intriguing question, though, as one might expect, those answers directly confront and agitate the man-centered way of measuring reality that we, as people, tend to prefer.
We want to...
As we mentioned last week, we’ve recently started tinkering with a new video channel in support of the Fire Breathing Christian mission. The general idea is to provide simple, straightforward video commentary in line with the articles we share here at the site.
Here are the...
One of the most surreal aspects of modern American culture is the manner in which the vast majority of self-identified conservative Christians have simultaneously embraced three bizarrely (and embarrassingly) contradictory approaches to life:
To bow or not to bow.
That is the question.
Or at least it has been over the past few days of President Trump’s diplomatic adventure to Saudi Arabia.
While there’s a truckload of strangeness worthy of examination where the nature of Saudi Arabia and its relationship the...
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)?
