    The Faith Protection Act making Georgia a “sanctuary state for people of faith” is enacted into law, Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Kemp contextualized the proposed legislation as a response to assorted lockdown and shutdown decrees ostensibly issued by various state and local authorities as public health measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission. “I want Georgia to be known as a sanctuary state for people of faith,” Kemp declared. “I think we’ve seen around the country there have been a lot of people in power, especially governors around the...
  • Dialogue for God: from San Diego through John Keats and John Quincy Adams to Melbourne, Australia (A Personal Post)

    John Quincy Adams died on February 23, 1848. He believed that “…... who we are is who we were.” This gives me hope that it is not impossible to return from modern madness to a culture based on faith in God. Fairness. Rationality. Freedom Of Speech. The Word. According to John Keats, "“Intelligences ..... are God.”

  • Dear Fellow Theologians, What's the Difference Between "Faith vs Trust"

    02/12/2021 3:44:08 PM PST · by OneVike · 252 replies
    I have been invited to be an advisor for a group of Koine Greek scholars who are translating a new Bible. My role is to be sure they do not lose the context of the passage as they translate from Koine Greek to English. My predicament today is the usage of two words, "faith and trust". I am currently in a debate with one of the Greek Scholars as to which word, "faith" or "trust". In order to properly understand where I am coming from, I must tell you that this Bible will be as close of a literal word...
  • Professor Says He’s ‘Struggling’ with His Christian Faith Because of Trump, But Beheadings Shouldn’t Reflect on Islam

    Religions shouldn’t be considered responsible for the misdeeds of their followers, right? That has been the consistent establishment media line on Islam since 9/11, and before that, and it has been enshrined in public policy on both sides of the Atlantic and become axiomatic in the West’s approach to terrorism. But wait. Issac Bailey is a columnist and a professor of Public Policy at Davidson College in North Carolina. He writes in Newsweek: “If Christianity can convince so many to follow a man like Trump almost worshipfully—or couldn’t at least help millions discern the unique threat Trump represented—what good is...
  • Super Bowl Ad: Swimmer Jessica Long’s Story Is a Pro-Life One

    After Toyota’s Super Bowl ad captured the touching life story of Paralympic swimmer Jessica Long, the media raced to report on the athlete. But many of them bypassed crucial details about the 28 year old – including her Christian faith and pro-life position.Toyota, a partner of Team USA, highlighted the 13-time Paralympic gold medalist on Sunday. Her story is one worth telling: She was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a baby and lost both of her legs as a toddler only to become the second-most decorated U.S. Paralympian in history. But there’s more to the story. She centers her...

    Source: Courtesy of Myra AdamsThanks for joining this study and a special welcome to “first-timers.” Your presence acknowledges that the Bible has supremely impacted and continues to impact the world through the power of words – the Word of God. In His Word, God speaks to his people collectively, to individual leaders, and those he has chosen as future leaders. Studying the Word of the Lord can be inspiring, comforting, and uplifting every day, but especially during times of personal or national crisis. Conversely, His Word can bring warnings and harbingers of what is to come. Since this is a...

    With the pendulum of Good and Evil swinging endlessly back and forth Men must struggle with those forces every day. That fight rages within our endless drive to be the best at any endeavor. There are those men who seek power to help their fellow men rise up and and to better their lives solely for the sake of helping. Too often though, men will seek out power solely for the personal enrichment. Such men care not for lives of other men. As good men are replaced with Evil men. So Good and Evil swing on the Pendulum. Our nation...

    I live what many would call the American Dream. Not only do I fly Old Glory from the front porch of the house I own, I own my own small business as well. I am a married man and father who serves his church regularly in a leadership position. I also sit on the board of a local school where my children attend. On top of all of that, I serve my country in the military reserves. I own guns, live in the Bible belt, and grew up without social media but am young enough to follow them and appreciate...
  • If We Are to Be Hated, Let It Be for the Right Reason

    01/18/2021 7:05:54 AM PST · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | January 18, 2021 | Michael Brown
    On numerous occasions, Jesus promised us, His followers, that we would be hated. That is something we should expect and even embrace. Let’s just be sure we are hated for the right reasons. Being hated for the wrong reasons is not something to be embraced, let alone celebrated. Jesus said, “You will be hated by everyone because of Me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22). But note those words “because of Me.” We will be widely hated because of our association with Him, because of our preaching in His name and because...
  • Martin Luther King’s Faithful Voice More Important Than Ever

    On this day we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. May we be challenged to hear his faithful message anew. The media will focus on how racial bias still exists, but few will focus on the importance of his faith in shaping his message and his hope for America. What was his power source? It was the rock-solid inner strength that comes from faith and grounding in God. In our increasingly secular society, the tributes to King focus on his use of peaceful marches, his calls for tolerance, and his impact on the Civil Rights Movement. But you will not...
