  • "Three Words for Thanksgiving: Think, Thank, Talk" (Sermon for Thanksgiving Day; Philippians 4:6-20)

    “Three Words for Thanksgiving: Think, Thank, Talk” (Philippians 4:6-20) Today I have three words for you. These are three things you can do to celebrate this Day of Thanksgiving. They are three words that are easy for you to remember for the rest of this day. And here they are: “Three Words for Thanksgiving: Think, Thank, Talk.” We find all three of these ideas present in the Epistle lesson for today, from Philippians 4. First of all, we’ll start with the word “Think.” Paul addresses his brothers at the congregation in Philippi and he says: “Whatever is true, whatever is...

    As rampant housing shortages, Sweden has decided to place newly-arrived migrants in a retirement home as part of a trial project. Although temporary, this measure has been hailed as promoting integration and is said to have received overwhelmingly positive reactions.

    Her name is Faten Mahdi Al-Hussaini. She’s twenty-two years old, she lives in Oslo, she wears a hijab, she’s praised the Ayatollah Khomeini and blamed Jews for all the world’s travails – and she’s the newest star on the state-owned, public-funded Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK).

    When we point out that neither Socialism nor Communism have ever worked, its supporters simply smile indulgently and say, “Well, that’s just because the right people haven’t tried it yet.” On that count, they are just plain wrong. Communism had its purest test in the earliest days of American history, and was an abysmal, abject, utter failure. And it was tried by a small group of people who were committed to each other, devoted to God, and were hard-working and industrious. If this crew couldn’t make it work, nobody’s ever going to make it work.

No one has the right to deprive us of our culture and our identity", Erdogan told Turks in Germany as early as in 2011.

  • Colin Kaepernick Needs the Truth

    11/19/2017 8:30:01 AM PST · by DWW1990 · 17 replies ^ | 11/19/2017 | Trevor Grant Thomas
    On the same day that GQ—sometimes known as Genuflecting Quarterbacks—named Colin Kaepernick as its “Citizen of the Year,” several mainstream media outlets—including Christian websites—reported that some Christian players in the NFL who support Kaepernick’s protest of “systemic oppression and…police brutality toward black people” are frustrated at the criticism directed at Mr. Kaepernick. They are especially frustrated that the out-of-work quarterback isn’t getting more support from the Christian community within the NFL. ... What if, while standing among the crowds of urban youth—where he so often finds himself—instead of talking about the myth of “systemic oppression and police brutality,” Mr. Kaepernick...
  • Joy Reid Tears Into Pastor Mark Burns For Defending Roy Moore: ‘Aren’t You a Moral Leader?’

    Mediaite ^ | November 18, 2017 | Justin Baragona
    Remember Pastor Mark Burns? He’s the black Trump-supporting pastor who tweeted out a cartoon of Hillary Clinton in blackface. Following that firestorm, he memorably walked out of a CNN interview last September after he was confronted over exaggerating and lying on his bio. Well, he’s back, as he’s been tasked with appearing on TV to defend Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in the wake of the teen sex abuse scandal. And as you’d imagine, his appearances have been off the rails. This morning, he showed up on MSNBC’s AM Joy and really got into it with host Joy Reid....
  • "Faithful Stewards of Our Master's Talents" (Sermon on Matthew 25:14-30)

    “Faithful Stewards of Our Master’s Talents” (Matthew 25:14-30) Our text is the Holy Gospel for today, from Matthew 25. It’s the story known as the Parable of the Talents. A master gives his servants talents, varying amounts of money, to manage on his behalf. When he comes back, we see what they have done with those talents and what the master says to them about their stewardship. This parable has real application to us, for you and I have been gifted by God with varying talents and abilities, as well as money, to be used faithfully for God’s purposes. You...

    Ask a drunk Mel Gibson what happens when one crosses the antisemitism line. However, it appears if you're a pro-Palestinian college student or liberal so-called comedienne on Free Speech TV, disparaging Jews is tolerated, if not encouraged. With that, we wish to share with you the following exchange from The Stephanie Miller Show on SiriusXM's Progress channel ("Home of the Resistance"). We'll give Stephanie and her guests the benefit of the doubt of being sober at the time....

Their target this time? The never ending joke that is modern Sweden.

    Roy Moore's Christianity and conservatism represents something that scares the heebie-jeebies out of the establishment Can someone figure out who you are today by examining your actions from 39 years ago? I am not who I was 39 years ago, or 29 years ago, or 9 years ago. As human beings, we tend to learn, grow and mature. I do not believe Roy Moore is guilty of what he is being accused of, but isn’t it strange that all of this suddenly appeared within 30 days of an election regarding a guy who is not only a threat to the...

    The presumption of good faith is an important element in public discussions. Casting accusations of disingenuousness at opponents does a great disservice to the process of sorting out the truth in the public area. It is, therefore, prudent to accept the word of Republican conservatives and radio talk show hosts that they are opposing the candidacy of Judge Roy Moore because they believe Doug Jones, his Democratic opponent, would be a better Senator and serve the people of America to a higher degree. This said I say to those who say they believe pro-abortion, pro-amnesty pro-Obamacare anti-tax cut Democrat Jones...
