Election 2012: Do Government Programs Produce Government-Friendly Voters?

I am pro-government.There. I just shocked some of you into spewing coffee all over your keyboard. After you clean that up, allow me explain.God made it clear through countless inspired writers of Scripture that He ordained government. In fact, he added a pretty sobering warning that whoever resists the authority of government, resists God. He also added that, should the two collide, we are to obey God rather than government. Unfortunately, because government is comprised of sinful human … [Read more...]

Skyfall: See Why James Bond Just Got Even Better

WhenI first stepped into the theater to see Skyfall, the latest James Bond extravaganza that released in the US on Friday, November 9, 2012, I got worried.A quick glance revealed I was surrounded by senior citizens. If my math was right, many of them likely watched Dr. No when it first hit the big screen in 1962. Maybe that's because I went to the matinee. I'm guessing so because some critics have called Skyfall one of the top five Bond movies ever. As a Bond afficianado, I must agree.It's … [Read more...]

Election 2012: 5 Things I Don’t Understand about Christians Who Voted for Obama

"God is in control." Well, duh.I've heard this refrain reminding of God's sovereignty countless times now since Election 2012 as a mantra to console evangelical Christians and religious conservatives bemoaning the recent win by Barack Obama. Contrary to what some seem to have concluded from my posts "It's the End of America as We Know It"  or "We Are All Victims Now, Mr. President," I have never doubted for a moment that God was, is, and will always be in control.But Scripture also de … [Read more...]

Election 2012: We Are All Victims Now, Mr. President

C.S. Lewis said in his famous sermon "The Weight of Glory" that if he were to ask twenty Christian leaders in his day what was the chief virtue, nineteen of them would answer Selflessness. Lewis argued that previous centuries of Christians would have answered instead with Love as the noblest of virtues. He was right in assessing his generation.But the 2012 Presidential election this week leads me to think that most Americans today would answer that question differently yet again. I suspect m … [Read more...]

Election 2012: It’s the End of America As We Know It

"It's a tragedy."  So said Dennis Prager upon first hearing the news that Ohio had gone to Obama, thus deciding the Election 2012 outcome in these United States, November 6, 2012. I would add my own thought as a lifelong Buckeye: It is embarrassing.By reelecting Barack Obama, we have made a choice as a nation that is so egregiously bad that I feel I must distance myself from the decision or risk being associated with the disastrous consequences of it. Even though I'm not sure that such se … [Read more...]

Presidential Failure, My Kingdom Journey to Serve in Guam

When I answered the call to train leaders in Guam this coming week, I didn't notice the proximity to the election. I've been occupied the last few days preparing to serve ministry leaders in Guam. I'm flying there tomorrow so posting will likely be thin leading up to the election.Some will applaud my absence, no doubt, as evidence continues to surface that the President is likely the one who refused to send in help to our heroic Americans on the ground. The 3 AM phone call came. Obama voted "p … [Read more...]
