A public call for prayer that encountered no protests

No public call for prayer in school, at graduation ceremonies, or at the commencement of governmental meetings for fear of protests.

But in a violently shaking plane? No protests there!

But the Lord sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up. Then the mariners were afraid; and every man cried out to his god, and threw the cargo that was in the ship into the sea, to lighten the load. But Jonah had gone down into the lowest parts of the ship, had lain down, and was fast asleep. So the captain came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, call on your God; perhaps your God will consider us, so that we may not perish.”” (Jonah 1:4-6 NKJV)

Truth creates bizarre allies

Much like the time Pilate and Herod became agreeable due to their dismissive ambiguity (and by that I mean their lack of interest in the repentance, righteousness and truth of the gospel) toward Jesus (Luke 23:4-12), right has the weird ability to make friends out of wrong.

For example, Continue reading

The intolerable tolerance movement strikes again

You may have heard about Kathy Griffin’s photo by now – you know, the one she thought would make people laugh by holding a decapitated and blood-covered head (or mask) made to look like the current President. This is the same woman who used an expletive aimed directly at Jesus after winning an award a few years back too. She’s a model of the true leftist agenda … preach tolerance but retain none for anyone you disagree with (the photographer of the image has offered no apologies).

Now, the irony of the latest situation Ms. Griffin placed her self in is that somehow she views herself as the victim!

Politics is politics for sure, but make no mistake – when politics takes aim at true morality under the guise of tolerance, the motivation is a lack tolerance for the said morality every time.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20 NKJV)

Head in the sand

Ostriches have the undeserved reputation for practicing it, but the western culture is the one that has actually mastered the skill of sticking its head in the sand.

Another terrorist attack and a large part of the focus in some popular media outlets (I’m not talking about TMZ) is revolving around the way “stars” are reacting to the news. Because there aren’t more important ways to talk about this situation I guess?!

Never-mind looking into the mindset that led to the attack – that would be too obvious! Nope, let’s stick our head in the sand and pretend like the problem is the recently elected American president, the stigma of using the word Islamic terrorist or even the explosives used to kill and maim so many people. The problem is the mindset that the media sweeps under the rug … a rug with no sand under it mind you.

The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise than for a man to hear the song of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:4-5)

Unconscious bias targeted with biased symbols – LOL!

The irony of liberalism can be too much at times – especially when it comes to feminism.

Melbourne, Australia is putting the brakes on the western culture’s “unconscious gender bias” with its new … wait for it … Continue reading

12-20-2016 Fake News In The News

“Fake news” is in the news, or is it “fake news” about “fake news?” If “news” is “new information about specific and timely events,” then it may, or may not be “true.” Some refuse to face facts: an election is over; there are illegitimate babies and illegal aliens; education is not, actually; profit is not evil and Christians are not hypocrites! “Truth” is “conformity to fact or reality.” Jesus said He came into the world “that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37 NKJV).  Pilate replied, “What is truth?” (John 18:38 NKJV).  Pilate represents people who cannot accept reality, so they question “truth” as if it were “fake news.” Since “no lie is of the truth” (1 John 2:21 NKJV), then there is no “fake news” about Jesus Christ in the Bible. Believe it!
