The Modern Carpetbaggers: Where Is the Real Danger?

I’m writing this to Southern folks who still have a love of their family and heritage; while others are happily being snookered in the enemy camp. “Honor your father and your mother” the Lord God said. Some of you still have a sense of family and want to obey God. Remember it is always better […]

Obama: To Base Policy on God’s Law “a dangerous thing”

and then there is this commentary on Obama….

America, and Western Civilization Is Dying

The reason for, and the explanation of, the fall of the American empire, and, for western civilization, is very simple. Unregenerate men love darkness more than light. In other words, they hate God. It’s that simple. God says: “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness […]

Changing Your Lifestyle for the Better

You wanted to know how it is that a person can change his lifestyle? The answer is simple: Anyone can change if he is determined to do so. Some change for health reasons (they may stop smoking). Others change in order to please a certain girl—or fellow—as the case may be (they change their language […]

Black Man’s Message to Black Idiots

He’s right, but the only way blacks, or anyone else can change, is through the Gospel, by the new birth, regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

Towards Economic Liberty

If we want economic liberty – want to be free to work most productively and to have what we produce – our concern must focus on the tax roots to shut off the revenue which nourishes the disease. To work at the other end and merely bemoan the detailed projects of socialism or damn the […]

The Soul of the Sluggard

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.-Proverbs 13:4 John Gill: He desires knowledge, but does not care to be at any pains to get it, and so has it not; he desires riches, but chooses not to make use of the means, to be […]

Obama: “I Heard the News on Dateline”

I Saw God Wash the World

I saw God wash the World last night with his sweet showers on high, and then, when morning came, I saw Him hang it out to dry. He washed each tiny blade of grass and every trembling tree; He flung his showers against the hill and swept the billowing sea. The white rose is a […]

Be Thankful for Work

“Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and contentment, and a hundred virtues which the […]

Our Defining Moment

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. – Philippians 2:12,13 [NASB] […]

The Difference Between Empathy and Sympathy

Here’s an interesting short film on the difference between two often confused feelings. I haven’t checked the Greek on the two words yet, but the film is helpful in distinguishing the two.

Murph, the Protector: The True Story of Navy Seal Lt. Michael P. Murphy

Think about this guy before you applaud some famous actor or actress for a performance. This is a performance. The difference here is that it is real life, not scripted by self-serving screenwriters from the dung heap we know as Hollywood.

The Police Power of Every Citizen

Todd Friel is SO wrong. Todd Friel of Wretched fame sends the message to Christian viewers that, in the case of witnessing or being a victim of the “knockout game” that, in the case of witnessing, help the victim first (yes, that’s good, righteous), and secondly – “call the authorities to deal with the thugs.” […]

Oh No! Someone On the Internet Is Wrong!

Days That Have Long Since Past

While it isn’t a healthy practice to live in the past, it is certainly beneficial to remember it. America has a long, deep history, and much to be thankful for.

Turkey Size

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but could not find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, “Do these turkeys get any bigger?” The stock boy replied, “No Ma’am, they’re all dead.”   [It’s a joke. Listen, nobody forced you to come here. ]

The Day Matthew Henry Was Robbed

Matthew Henry, the famous scholar, was once robbed. He wrote these words in his diary: Let me be thankful first, because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because, although they took my all, it wasn’t much; and fourth, because it was I […]
