What is Sacrifice? What is Courage? Musk, Swift, and Others Demonstrate.

Although Elon Musk claims he has been and still is a liberal, he has become a conservative hero. I often agree with him, but I see him as merely attempting to return us to normality, sensibility, fairness, and sanity. Musk is resurrecting the notion of free speech, a fundamental concept which has only recently comeContinue reading “What is Sacrifice? What is Courage? Musk, Swift, and Others Demonstrate.”

On Church and Science: Yet Another Phony Narrative

Academics today view Christianity as a fairy tale, and those believing in it as gullible and witless. Science and religion are portrayed as mutually exclusive, but this view has gained acceptance only in the last 100 years, and can be disproven.  Isaac Newton, the inventor of calculus and one of the greatest minds of allContinue reading “On Church and Science: Yet Another Phony Narrative”

Revival Must Happen

Pastor Greg Laurie, pastor and author of Jesus Revolution spoke the title line in a recent interview. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/jesus-revolution-how-the-hippie-generation-came-to-christ/id1045171376?i=1000607600628 I knew nothing of Laurie until I saw his story depicted in the Jesus Revolution movie earlier this year. Laurie was caught up in the hippie movement of the 1970s, a movement that can be seen asContinue reading “Revival Must Happen”

The Jesus Revolution, Revival, and Asbury

The just released movie Jesus Revolution is well done and inspiring. It is a story of three men in 1970s, men with vastly different backgrounds and life stories who were drawn together to bring California hippies to Jesus. The movie portrays the movement’s initial impetus, one which eventually expanded far beyond one California town. HeadlineContinue reading “The Jesus Revolution, Revival, and Asbury”

Let’s Fight the Culture War. It Should be Easy Against These Folks.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former Trump press secretary and now governor of Arkansas, gave the State of the Union rebuttal last week. She defined the contrast in America today: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/sarah-huckabee-sanders-gives-republican-response-to-biden-full-text-11675829909 The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left.   The choice is between normal or crazy.  She re-iterated the point: And while youContinue reading “Let’s Fight the Culture War.

Dying Culture Refuses to Defend Marriage, Life, and Liberty

On November 29, the US Senate passed the Marriage Equality bill by a vote of 61-36, putting same sex marriage on the same plane as traditional marriage. Through almost all of civilization, marriage and family was recognized as the foundation of society. Doing what feels good, placing no limits whatsoever on sexual behavior, and notContinue reading “Dying Culture Refuses to Defend Marriage, Life, and Liberty”

Republicans are Imposing a Theocracy: Where’s the Beef?

Liberal counterparts are quick to inform me how awful (dangerous, controlling, etc.) religion is and that Republicans and the Religious Right seek to implement a theocracy in the US.  They are certain a theocracy is the goal. I am certain it is not. In my state of North Carolina, we have two weak-kneed Republican USContinue reading “Republicans are Imposing a Theocracy: Where’s the Beef?”

Defending Faith and Values: Absolute Lies Discredited

In my last post, I highlighted the media’s reflexive attack of the new Italian PM, Giorgia Meloni; they called her a racist and fascist because they don’t like her defense of religion, God, and traditional values. The hostility towards people of faith, especially Christians and Jews, is in the open today. Giorgia Meloni and DefendingContinue reading “Defending Faith and Values: Absolute Lies Discredited”

Giorgia Meloni and Defending Faith and Values

During my entire adult life, those in the political opposition have reflexively attached the racist label if they don’t agree with a view on just about any issue. The label almost never fits, but it is so easy and so comfortable to label the opposition narrow-minded bigots. It is sloppy and illogical, but it isContinue reading “Giorgia Meloni and Defending Faith and Values”

The Normalization of Delusion

Recently, I wrote of the affirmation of Coach Joe Kennedy’s right to pray at mid-field after contests. I said this eight-year battle for this simple, Constitutionally protected right is not a harbinger that confirms your worst fears of Christians. Like many commenting on my posts, this person’s distaste for religious views seems prejudicial and unhealthy:Continue reading “The Normalization of Delusion”
