Is the Resurrection Bunk? Don’t Bet Your Life on It

with 3 comments

Another Easter has come and gone.  There are sales on everything from bunnies to bonnets.  For some it’s an opportunity for bargains, others will breathe a sigh of relief.

Easter is the most important, joyous event on the Christian calendar, but for others it’s a reminder of their mortality and they simply can’t wait for the last signs of this annual celebration to be gone.

Death is something we must face.  The question is, “If you died tonight, where would you be tomorrow?” Read the rest of this entry »

The Culture vs Biblical Morality (Culture Wins at Least for Now)

with 4 comments

Disney’s long-awaited live-action remake of the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” broke records on its opening weekend despite the news that, for the first time, the studio is featuring an openly gay character in a film aimed at children.

Disney has been promoting the gay agenda for some time but never crossed this all-important line.  It’s executives have reason to celebrate.  Despite this controversial content that flies in the face of Biblical morality, the film broke the record for best March opening, Best PG rated all-time opening, and scored the 7th biggest launch of all time for any movie.   It pulled in $174.8 million in the U.S. where 70.6 percent of our population identify as Christians and another 1.4 percent adhered to Judaism.

Both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible condemn homosexuality in the strongest terms, as do all the major religions.  However, only one theater in the United States, a drive-in in DeKalb County, Alabama, refused to show the movie.   Read the rest of this entry »

Hypocrites, Feminists, Phonies and Fakes (The Rant Against Melania Trump)

with 2 comments

Leftists have steadfastly argued that first ladies of the United States are off limits to public criticism even when they jump off their protected pedestals, move into the West Wing and dive into the muck and mire of political issues, even when they hurl hateful insults at political opponents, dress like a tramp and, yes, even when they openly criticize our country.  These same leftists have turned on the afterburners in an attempt to demonize Melania Trump.

We Need the Peace of Christmas (But It Is Conditional)

with one comment

We have entered Christmas week, the most joyous holiday of the year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, the one who is called the “Prince of Peace.”

The trees have been trimmed.  Cards have been sent. Presents are being bought and wrapped and familiar carols are being sung like “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”

And mild and sweet their songs repeat

of peace on earth good will to men.

Peace is something we all want — freedom from worry, a quiet and calm state of mind, agreement and harmony among people.  It’s a word that has become synonymous with Christmastime. Read the rest of this entry »

A Day of Thanksgiving (Not Since the Civil War Has Our Nation been so Divided)

with 2 comments

Never in my lifetime have I seen so many disgruntled people in this country which has stood as a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the globe.

Our country has withstood a civil war, two world wars, a great depression, the cold war,  terrorist attacks, a housing crisis and numerous recessions but we’ve stood together, as one people, through these difficult times and come out stronger as a result of the trials.

Now it seems we are being torn apart by activists among us who want to separate us by race, gender, religion, ethnic origin, political persuasion and all manner of economic and educational strata for their own selfish ends.   Read the rest of this entry »
