Many smart people in the know are rightly worried that war may be inevitable in the Middle East. They are right to be worried, as this time it will not be a proxy war. This one will be a direct conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia for Muslim supremacy of the region. But this is not about two nations. It …

We’ve all heard that the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery have been persecuted by the state of Oregon for not baking a cake for a same-sex wedding because of their Christian convictions. And their penalty for adhering to their faith ended up totaling $136,927.07, which they paid in its entirety on December 28th, …

This is a new one, but it’s an old one at the same time. Apparently, a substantial number of Muslims in the Las Vegas region have converted to Christianity. On its face, that’s good news. However, they seem to be having a hard time making the transition, as a group that admittedly includes a large …

The Bible says that God took a rib from Adam’s side and created Eve. The process is never explained just like the process of creation itself is never explained. Now there’s a new theory: “A professor of the Bible in California has posed the theory that the Adam and Eve narrative in the book of …

If Jesus had never been born, to borrow a phrase from C. S. Lewis, it would be “always winter, but never Christmas.” But some Christians, even today, think of the celebration of Christmas as a pagan holiday. When the Pilgrims and the Puritans had the opportunity to assert their influence, they did not celebrate Christmas. …

I’d like build upon my article “Stop Making Excuses for Islam.” In it I expressed my frustration over the constant refrain from Islam apologists that “That Is Not Islam,” every time a Muslim expresses his intolerance of something outside his “faith.” I am reminded of the idiotic remark said by president Obama in Egypt while on his infamous …

I was shocked Friday night. My wife and I had just gotten home from our company Christmas party. While I don’t usually watch “20/20,” I clicked on the channel and to my surprise I was surprised. It was about an “American husband and wife team [that] helped more than 100 Iraqi Christian refugees escape ISIS terror …

Last I heard, most schools are phasing out handwriting and never taught calligraphy. There’s also the whole “church-state” bugbear, which prevents students from writing, saying or reading the name Jesus in many schools. So you have to wonder what’s going through the heads of officials in a Virginia school district where students were given an …

I saw a short video about redemptive elements in the first Home Alone film. It’s been some time since I’ve seen Home Alone, so I was intrigued enough to watch “Did Kevin Meet God and Get Saved in Home Alone? What did the writers, producers, and directors have in mind when they put obviously Christian elements in Home Alone? …

Every time you turn on some media broadcast, Donald Trump’s comments about Muslims and immigration are there. Nearly every Democrat and Republican has denounced his comments as “un-American,” Hitleresque, unpatriotic, and unconstitutional. Religion is now important, except when it isn’t. Where was the sanctity of religion when the Obama administration went after the Little Sisters of …

Once again, the Bible is being interpreted through the lens of current events. The Christian Post reports: “Nearly eight out of 10 Evangelicals say they believe the ongoing violence in the Middle East is an indication that the rapture is on the horizon, a new survey released Friday shows. “Research conducted by the Brookings Institute’s …

“Criminologist Casey Jordan appeared on CNN . . . late Wednesday to make an abundantly absurd claim that the attack in San Bernardino, California, which left at least 14 people dead and was reportedly committed by a devout Muslim husband and wife tag team, was probably fueled by the holiday party taking place at the time which ‘may have …
