Frustrated Evangelicals Demand a King in Donald Trump

 2016 will not be the first time the people of God made political decisions born of fear instead of faith. Evangelicals who know their biblical history will recall the time of the judges after the Israelites had left Egypt and entered the Promised Land of Canaan. It was a chaotic and lawless time during which foreigners routinely invaded. The people of God grew tired of it all. They demanded a savior, a ruler who would fix all their problems and make Israel great again.They repudiated … [Read more...]

Why I’m Voting for Marco Rubio in Georgia

5 Things I Don’t Understand about Christians for Donald Trump

Donald Trump is a WWF candidate. He is the Hulk Hogan of presidential politics.I Kid. You. Not.As recently as 2007 he was in the ring. Literally.He’s been behind the scenes of pseudo-wrestling shows for over 25 years. But that should come as no surprise.Think about what he has done in the campaign thus far and see if it doesn’t more resemble a WWF event than a bid to the highest office in the land–an office defined by its first holder George Washington, the epitome of both civ … [Read more...]

Antonin Scalia: God Give Us More Leaders Like Him

Today I feel what I felt the day after Andrew Breitbart died—as if we had lost a cultural warrior who stood in the gap and dared the Leftist hordes to try to pass.United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia could always be counted on to stare down the calumnies of the Left, to stand when others sidled into the shadows, and to do it with intelligence and deep appreciation for the foundational role of faith in public policy.Scalia was one of the elite defenders of freedom.If … [Read more...]

5 Gears: The Solution to Never Having Enough Time

I'm probably the only one to feel as if I can never do enough, never be enough, never [insert your favorite complaint here]. But maybe you've felt that way, too?I sometimes wonder what the Apostle Paul could be talking about when he prays in Ephesians 3:19  that we would be "filled with all the fullness of God."Fullness? Are you kidding me? Most days I'm happy to feel as if I have anything in my God cup, let alone have it filled to overflowing. And my family often feels that impact of … [Read more...]

Rubio Is Right: Obey God, Not the Supreme Court

Senator and Republican Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio turned some heads on the Left recently by saying we should obey God rather than men.The fact that such a simple statement would provoke controversy at all signals just how far our freedoms have already slipped.What Rubio said is nothing new. It is what nearly every Christian -- and people of every major religion -- have believed for two millenia:In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally … [Read more...]

Syrian Refugees Test Common Sense, Not Bigotry

We are all bigots now, apparently. Why? Because we don't welcome refugees from Syria into America with open arms when we know ISIS is using them as cover to infiltrate Western nations and kill us.ISIS is creating a crisis -- made worse by our own fecklessness -- and then leveraging it to their advantage.And we are being pressured to let them get away with it by our "compassionate" leaders who lack the courage to act in the face of evil.It is easier to bully us than to bully Islamic … [Read more...]

ISIS Needs the Gospel — and a Good Bombing

The safe thing for Christians to say in response to the ISIS attacks in Paris (not to mention the Beirut massacre and the downing of the Russian airliner) is that we need to love everyone -- the victims, their families, and the misguided souls who comprise ISIS.And who can argue with that? Saying we should love everyone is the equivalent of wearing pink to support breast cancer research -- it's the fundraiser no one can take issue with (which may explain why we see it … [Read more...]
