Paying it Forward to End Welfare and Change Lives

The Bible asks, “For who has despised the day of small things?” (Zech. 4:10) And yet, there are too many people who do. They feel the need for the establishment of a huge bureaucracy in order to care for the truly needed. Many will appeal to the Bible in an attempt to make the case […]

Atheists Don’t Donate a Lot to Charities Because It Would Help the Weak

There’s a new study out that says atheists don’t donate as much money to charities as religious people do.

Man Arrested For Tossing $1,000 To Crowd At Mall

Christmas is a time of giving.  We celebrate the greatest act of giving ever made when God gave us His Son Jesus who would become the sacrificial lamb for all of mankind’s sin.  It is a gift that we are so unworthy of receiving, but God chose to redeem us with His gift. We celebrate […]

Detroit: Mainstream News Begrudgingly Shows Private Society Takes Care Of Itself

It is a long time coming, but this Fox News story acknowledges that life is not over in Detroit: “Detroit Dire, But Private Groups, Citizens Keep The Motor City Running.” Even though I love this news story, I’m going to criticize it because it keeps making assumptions that don’t make much sense. It starts with […]

Congress and White House to Put Thousands of Charities Out of Business

Long before the American Revolution, most charity came from churches […]

‘Christian’ Socialism is Still Socialism that Hurts Rather than Helps the Poor

Ron Sider has been at the forefront of the so-called Christian Socialist movement since the publication of his 1977 book Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger. (For a devastating critique of Sider’s book that Sider never answered in any of his reprint editions, see David Chilton’s Productive Christians and an Age of Guilt-Manipulators.) Sider […]
