Bible


Apostle Paul Aggrippa

Here we go again . . . another liberal trying to use the Bible to push an anti-Christian, pro-statist agenda. The latest attempt comes from Jay Michaelson who writes for the Daily Beast. A number of groups are challenging certain provisions of the Obamacare law that they believe are a violation of their religious rights. …

trumbo_detail

My wife and I sat down the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch the 2015 film Trumbo. Dalton Trumbo is played by Bryan Cranston who did a marvelous job, certainly worthy of the Academy Award nomination he received for Best Actor. It’s loosely based on the Hollywood screenwriter, author, and self-admitted Communist Dalton Trumbo …

jesus-socialist

In a USA Today article, Stephen Prothero writes that “Sanders, a secular Jew, is the most Christian candidate in this race.” Prothero self-identifies as a “scholar of American religion.” All that means is that he has a PhD from a secular institution, but it doesn’t guarantee that he really knows that much about religion, especially the …

Empty Tomb

Did you know that the Bible does not teach that Jesus rose from the dead? Did you know that “the body of Christ” always refers to the actual body of Jesus? Well, that’s what highly paid liberal Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker claimed in response to a comment made by Sen. Ted …

rapefugees

When two years ago a Texas father beat his daughter’s rapist to death, no one in Texas had any doubts as to what the decision of the Grand Jury would be. The law in Texas not only allows but specifically authorizes the use of lethal force to prevent sexual assault. In this, the state gives …

strong language

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh yesterday when a young woman called in and asked Rush how to answer some of her family members who won’t vote for Donald Trump because of his “rough edges.” It was clear to me that this meant some of  the harsh things he’s been saying. Now I would not …

Quran

“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” – The Quran, Surah 9:5 When it comes to the global scourge of orthodox Islam, the Western world, which Islamists expressly seek to “destroy from within,” is an upside-down realm wherein objective facts, …

creation of eve

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 …

Revanant

Though we don’t have the Oscar nominations yet, I labeled this as one of my 2015 Oscar Watch commentaries because after seeing it, I am confident of two things: 1. The Revenant will receive an Oscar nomination for best picture and best director, and 2. Leonardo DiCaprio will win best actor for his gut wrenching …

birth of jesus

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. …

Israelite house_detail

The Christmas story has been turned into a political message about homelessness. Recently, liberals have claimed that when Mary and Joseph could not find a room in Bethlehem – you guessed it – it’s just like today’s refugee problem. Never let a contrived Bible story go to waste. The problem with the refugee analogy is …

wheaton college

All of a sudden liberals care about what goes on in Christian colleges. The latest attack on Christianity — not Islam for beheading Christians, raping Christians, burning down their churches, and selling Christians into slavery — is a disciplinary action by Wheaton College. The college is being attacked for putting Professor Larycia Hawkins on leave. “The public …
