“if a religion is permitted to exist, but is not permitted to be seen, not permitted to be heard of, not permitted to proselytize and not permitted to do anything which might in any way offend the majority, then clearly religious freedom does not exist”. [01]

Americans had better start getting comfortable with politically incorrect, non-humanistic forms of making intelligent judgments on moral issues because even if we don't make them, I'm concerned there is Someone very willing to hold our nation accountable for what we allow. And He doesn't respond well to intimidation, name-calling, flawed logic or being quoted out of context. [Brannon S. Howse. How the Most Misquoted Verse in the Bible Is Destroying America]

    Our Country

    The War Against Christianity
    Flat-earth Atheism and the Pledge of Allegiance I must admit to being a little perplexed about atheists who protest injustice. It's hard to understand why atheists believes they has any rights to be violated. If Creator God isn't real, then we are all just animals in an accidental universe. What justice do animals know other than the law of the jungle?

    The Death Of The Nation
    When Nations Die There are many reasons for the decline and fall of a nation, but an important (and often overlooked) reason is its abandonment of religion.

    Is It Too Late For America The chilling thing about our behavior as a nation is that the Bible teaches that when a nation under judgment refuses to repent, it will ultimately reach a point where God will deliver it from judgment to wrath from discipline to doom.

    Only A Miracle Can Save America Now If God intends to give America another chance, if He intends to return these United States to constitutional government, and if He intends to preserve America's independence, it will only come in the form of a miracle. And miracles do not happen by the machinations of pragmatic planners. Miracles are just that.

    Christians and Their Country
    What Do We Owe The Government?
    Should we respect leaders and political systems even if we believe they are godless and corrupt? Is flag-waving patriotism a form of idolatry? Do we have the right to withhold taxes if we don't think our government is using the money wisely? Should people who have pledged allegiance to Christ become involved in politics, or should we distance ourselves from the process? How can we pray for our leaders, even if we don't like them?

    The Christian and Social Action Christians love to try and “change the world” However the Bible calls Christians to reach out first to their own family, than the family of believers, and then the outside world. The logic is plain enough to see: you have no business meddling in the affairs of the wider church if you don’t have affairs in order where you have direct control. I submit that the same logic applies to the wider world: if you cannot manage the church, what on earth are you doing inserting yourself and your views outside the church?

    Living In Babylon Since the era of the Moral Majority and the rise of the so called "religious right," there has been an ongoing debate within the Christian community about how to define the appropriate relationship between Christians and the contemporary American culture.

    How To Live For God While Living In Babylon Like Daniel we need to remain stable in a culture that opposes virtually everything Christians stand for and held on to a God centered view, However, also like Daniel, we must show respect while doing so.

    A Better Society Without The Gospel? It is through the propagation of the gospel and the building of the church, not through politics and the renewal of America, that we are promised that even "the gates of hell shall not prevail" (Mat. 16:18). To demand a return to an alleged "Judeo-Christian ethic" with the unbiblical expectation that the moral quality of our nation will thereby improve is to waste precious time, energy and resources that should be channeled instead to fulfilling Christ’s "great commission."

    Politics and Politicians
    That Christians have become stupendously gullible is the understatement of the year! Just about all a politician has to do is say, "I'm a conservative. I'm pro-life and pro-family," and Christians sing his or her praises all the way to the voting booth. That is, if he or she is a Republican.

    Does Presidential Character Count? Is the top executive in this country really just filling the role of a contractor? Or does that office also include the role of ambassador, figurehead, or role model. Is he just a paid worker or is he a symbol of everything we stand for as a country?

    Liberal or Conservative Though they are too slippery to allow simple definitions, the words "conservatism" and "liberalism" contain hints as to their essential nature. Conservatives want to conserve for society what is right. Liberals want to liberate society from what is wrong. To this extent, both philosophies are in theory right and biblical. Unfortunately, in their practice both are capable of being thoroughly unbiblical.

    The Founding Of America
    Of the 55 Founding Fathers, twenty-eight were Episcopalians, eight were Presbyterians, seven were Congregationalists, two were Lutheran, two were Dutch Reformed, two were Methodist, two were Roman Catholic, one is unknown, and only three were deists Separation of Church And State;Ā This phrase so frequently invoked today was rarely mentioned by any of the Founders; and even Jefferson explanation of his phrase is diametrically opposed to the manner in which courts apply it today. Separation of church and state€¯ currently means almost exactly the opposite of what it originally meant.

    Entertainment and The Media In our world something has gone terribly wrong. Tv, Video Games, Movies, Fantasy Games and The Media are all a major part of the problem and possibly dangerous influences that can conform us to the world. How can a Christian make an intelligent assessment of these major influences, remembering that, as Christians, we are to live a pure lifestyle, even in private.

    Our Children

    Train A Child Are you as a parent following the instructions in Deut 6? Referring to the laws of God, it says ... “thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Emphasis added).

    Help Your Kids Make A Difference Parents have got a tough job to do. But you still need to parent your kids. Christian children will not grow up with a Christian perspective on world events if parents don't take the time to talk to them about what's going on. It's also necessary for parents to discuss America's heritage, economics and political philosophy to counter the Leftist propaganda that's being taught in government run schools. Instead of allowing them to be influenced by the god of electronics, get them involved in a worthwhile adventure

    Age of Accountability.. Although we have all probably heard the expression countless times over the years, it might surprise some to learn that the phrase "age of accountability" never appears in the Bible ... not even once. In fact, the concept itself is really not discussed in Scripture, although there are some OT and NT examples that have led to some speculation among scholars as to the specific age of this "magic moment" of discernment.


    Santa Claus.. Pretender To The Throne For the most part, the world will tolerate stars, angels, Christmas trees, or a baby sleeping in a manger. But there’s still "no room at the inn" for the King who invites us to walk His lowly path. Worse.. Jesus’ place has been usurped by a pleasant fat fellow boasting a red hat and team of reindeer. So how do we understand the Santa Claus phenomenon? What do we REALLY know about Santa? Is he just a harmless, friendly fellow? Or is there something or someone else hiding behind the faēade?



    What Happened When The Praying Stopped?
    How did the removal of voluntary prayer from the schools of the United States affect our nation as a whole? The court ruling to remove prayer from the school system was nothing more than the official stamp on the removal of God from a very crucial part of our society that contributed to the moral & spiritual disintegration of the US. The message the Supreme Court sent to the country that fateful day was that it was okay to remove God from His rightful place. However, Putting prayer back into schools may do more harm than good...

    The Golden Compass The movie’s 7th December release is engineered to create the most buzz for the newly repackaged trilogy and influence its sales potential among young people during the holiday season. The movie has been sanitized of its “hate God” theme and is being portrayed as another in a long line of fantasy movies that tell a wonderful tale. However, this story is a pernicious tale that will cause a large degree of spiritual disillusionment within the hearts of those who view it and later read the books.

    Harry Potter Harmless fantasty or un-Biblical and dangerous?

    Dungeons and Dragons "Make no mistake about it, magic and sorcery ARE spiritual. It does not matter if they are 'make believe' magic or not. We are not saying that everyone who plays D&D is going to end up a sorcerer or a Satanist. But we are saying that being exposed to all these ideas of magic to the degree that the game requires cannot but help have a significant impact on the minds of the players, no matter if they are Christian or unbeliever, and no matter what the 'template.'

    Veggie Tales In the midst of all the cultural and spiritual confusion, it is understandable why parents would show interest when a movie, like Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie, hits the big screen. After all, not only is the movie about a biblical character, it is also void of sex, violence, and bad language.... BUT

    The Effects of TV on Children. It is reported that children watch an average of 43 hours of TV per week, that's longer than the average adult work week. While watching, they rapidly become almost hypnotized. It has been shown scientifically that within minutes of beginning to watch TV, the brain changes from the alert brain waves (beta waves) to the hypnotic waves (alpha waves) where the judgment center of the brain is bypassed...
