An Open Letter to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to Save the Country

Gentlemen: I should say from the outset in writing this letter that I strongly suspect I am sending it too late. We will, of course, find out if this whole Trump thing has been much ado about nothing soon enough, but alas, even with a Cruz win in Iowa, the current plan for those who […]

Obama Amnesty for Illegals Blocked by Federal Judge

Barack Obama’s push to protect 5 million to 20 million illegals so they can vote illegally in 2016 has been temporarily blocked by a federal judge. Obama’s November memo would protect around 5 million illegals from being deported and the broadening that that memo by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson increases the protection […]

Angelina Jolie Tells a Broken Story of Louis Zamperini

I have rarely looked forward to a movie release more than I did Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, the film adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s book of the same name. Zamperini is a hero, a national treasure, and happens to share two things near and dear to my heart: A faith in the one, true God, and the fight on spirit […]

God’s Business Does Not Have Two Floors

I heard a well-known Christian leader and author inform 250 successful Christian businesspeople and donors a few days ago that “your business is just a side business; you cannot ever lose track of the fact that your real business is God’s business.” I am not saying his name or organization because I do not want […]

Five Civil Questions to Pose to Your Liberal Friends

If I were being totally honest, I would say that it has not been my experience that very many left-leaning folks in this country want to have an honest dialogue on the key issues that separate left from right. This is particularly true amongst the academically credentialed leftists I have encountered who presumably know they […]

The Great GOP Immigration Debate Takes the Stage

This last week I moderated a debate on the subject of immigration in Newport Beach, California. What made this debate unique is that it featured two folks quite to the right in their politics, Jon Fleischman of and fame, and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (Orange County Republican), VS. Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute, […]

The Insanity of Upper Middle Class Guilt Manipulating Pietism

There are few things in the world that annoy me more than upper middle class pastors living an upper middle class lifestyle in an upper middle class home within an upper middle class community who moralize over the evils of an upper middle class existence. The dangers of idolizing wealth are prevalent in the Scriptures […]

The Horror of Newtown

The tragedy in Newtown is not the kind of tragedy that warrants an immediate response, particularly one meant to reinforce a political or ideological agenda. The immediate response from decent people is utter silence. Numbness. Grief. And more silence. It was an unspeakable event, and it does warrant commentary on a handful of issues. However, […]

The Most Important Article I Have Ever Written

No, the title of this piece is not intended merely to be an attention-grabber. I really, really mean it. I have written a lot of things over the years, and I have felt (and continue to feel) very strongly about a lot of things. But as we enter the very final stretch of the 2012 […]
