“An Atmosphere of Lawlessness”: Attacks on Churches Nearly Triple in 4 Years, New Report Finds
The attacks show the comprehensive nature of anti-Christian violence. Assaults against churches occurred in 45 states and the nation’s capital.
“While it is good to see the Biden administration acknowledge that these attacks are a problem, they must do more,” Perkins states. “The Biden Department of Justice has so far largely ignored these growing attacks on churches and that is creating an environment of lawlessness around the country.” “Christians must not live in fear. We must... Continue Reading
Progressive Christianity’s Unwanted Progress
Having abandoned clear biblical teaching in one area, progresives found that if they continued updating their doctrine, they would progressively become better friends with the world.
Denying hell is unwanted progress. Evidently, the progressives that went further didn’t know when to apply the brakes. Having abandoned clear biblical teaching in one area, they found that if they continued updating their doctrine, they would progressively become better friends with the world. Franklin Graham On Newshub Newshub’s slanted take on Franklin Graham’s... Continue Reading
Our Tender Shoots Ravaged by the “Mouse”
Our nation has a widespread plague of sin-sickness that is victimizing and destroying our youth.
America has been uniquely blessed with the opportunity to repent from this sinfulness which is quickly destroying the younger generation of our nation. In fact, we have been commanded by God to raise our children in the training and admonition of the Lord to avoid that great tragedy (Ephesians 6:4). This is why Christians, above... Continue Reading
Christian Life in a Declining Empire
Assyria was "great" until Babylon became greater. Babylon was "great" until Persia was greater. Persia was "great" until Greece was greater. Greece was "great" until Rome was greater….
Whatever ruling power and prevailing culture exists in a given locale, the people of God have their directions from His hand and we are to do our best, by His grace and help, to obey him, no matter the cost (and it could be very costly). If our influence has diminished in this American empire,... Continue Reading
Russian Pastor, Maxim Fokin, Exiled in Turkey
Maxim has connected with a group of Russian speaking people in Izmir, Turkey who were looking for a pastor for a church they were planting.
After receiving this telephone call, Maxim and his family made the very difficult decision to remain as exiles in Turkey rather than to return home. Maxim and his son are opposed to the present war Russia is waging. This decision has been painful to his soul because he had labored for years in starting a... Continue Reading
The “Great Reset” Towers in Babel
Despite the near-magical advance of human invention, the same rebel spirit that inspired the tower in the ancient city of Babel (eventually Babylon), thrives today.
Unelected global elites, using fear and force, have big plans for the world. And, unless I missed it, submission to God is not in them. Elite revolutionaries are working feverishly on cutting-edge technologies to avert a flood of climate catastrophes that, more than likely, will never happen. To save the planet, they’ve turned to the gods... Continue Reading
A Progress Report on “Christian Nationalism”
The debate is hot as I predicted it would become in “Christian Nationalism – Dump the Term While We Still Can”
Ultimately, evangelism is our only hope. A Christian nation must come from the bottom up (the hearts of a converted people), not from the top down (political legislation). Neither will it come from heavy-weight books. America must be discipled again with the gospel before we can begin to think about being a Christian nation. Jesus... Continue Reading
More on Disestablishment (with Hodge)
The discipline regarding ethics is assigned to both church and civil government, although the means of discipline differ for each one.
I think that point can be argued in an explicitly Scriptural way. Although, I don’t suppose ‘religion’ establishmentarians necessarily disagree with that point. What I think there is disagreement about is the criterion by which we should discern the respective assignments (to church and to civil government, concerning ethics), and what those assignments are. ...

Wyoming Rescue Mission Settles Case to Exclusively Hire “Like-Minded” Christians
The investigation began after the Mission chose not to hire a “self-proclaimed non-Christian” for one of their thrift store associate positions.
As part of the Wyoming Rescue Mission v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission settlement, the Department and the EEOC agreed to pay the rescue mission’s attorneys’ fees. In addition, the court dismissed EEOC from the case and signed a consent decree settling it with the state. A lawsuit filed two months ago against government officials threatening to...

Hodge on Disestablishment
By enjoining duties concerning faith and worship upon the church, as an institution distinct from civil governance, the NT teaches positively that they do not belong to the magistrate, but to the church.
Hodge says “the only means which [civil governance] can employ to accomplish many [duties proposed by establishmentarian, such as suppressing heresy and preventing false worship], [namely, by coercion], are inconsistent with the example and commands of Christ [concerning faith and worship]; [and inconsistent] with the [liberty] of Christians, guaranteed in the Word of God (i.e.,...
