  • From Time’s “Is God Dead?” in 1966 to the New York Times’ Call to “Give Up God” Today

    04/18/2022 4:35:23 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | April 18, 2022 | Michael Brown
    On April 8, 1966, the pictureless front cover of Time Magazine asked a bold and direction question: “Is God Dead?” This was just two days before Easter Sunday, and in the decades that followed, it became increasingly common for anti-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Bible essays to be featured in various secular publications at this time of year. Now, in keeping with this anti-God attitude during this sacred season, an April 15 op-ed piece for the New York Times was headlined, “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God.” How deeply sensitive for the Times to post this anti-God essay...
  • Who is Vladimir Putin? Is there any way to understand how a man who embraced "Christianity" could engage in such a murderous, destructive, and bloody campaign?

    When it comes to our president or many other prominent world leaders, we have a pretty good idea of who they are and what makes them tick. But do we really know who Vladimir Putin is? Do we know what drives and motivates him? More specifically, do we know for sure why he has invaded Ukraine?We have been told that he wants to restore the glory of the former Soviet Union. This will be his legacy.We have been told that he is simply threatened by the expansion of NATO, dreading the possibility of nuclear weapons stationed next to the Russian...
  • Responding to the Latest Christian Leader to Renounce His Faith

    01/23/2022 4:38:14 AM PST · by Kaslin · 90 replies ^ | January 23, 2022 | Michael Brown
    As reported by Josh Shepherd on the Roys Report, “Brady ‘Phanatik’ Goodwin, founding member of Grammy-nominated Christian hip-hop group, The Cross Movement, and in recent years an apologetics teacher, stated Monday in a video posted online that he has renounced his Christian faith.” As he stated in his Facebook video, “I sent a letter to my church withdrawing my membership and saying that I am denouncing the Christian faith that I have believed, professed, proclaimed, and defended for the last 30 years of my life.” In Goodwin’s video, which is delivered with candor and pain and graciousness, he explains how...
  • Totally Candid Reflections on the COVID Vaccinations

    Although I myself have not been vaccinated (more on that shortly), I have never been remotely anti-vax, nor have I ever downplayed the lethal nature of the virus. Not for a second. As I wrote in my very first article on COVID on March 2, 2020, “There is no denying the seriousness of the virus. “As Bill Gates noted in the New England Journal of Medicine on February 28, ‘In the past week, Covid-19 has started behaving a lot like the once-in-a-century pathogen we’ve been worried about.’ And even at this early stage, ‘Covid-19 has already caused 10 times as...

    I have no positive spin to put on this, no spiritual sounding platitude to soften the blow. This is a loss, a terrible, tragic loss. And I believe God Himself grieves over it. Evil COVID has killed again. I first met Brad Kauffman in the mid-1980s while teaching at a Bible school on Long Island. He was just 17 and I was only 28, and he would sometimes babysit for our two daughters. Brad had a very tender heart and was a tremendously gifted worship leader, piano player, singer, and songwriter. And as the years went on, he would sometimes...
  • So, I Finally Got COVID

    01/05/2022 6:01:52 AM PST · by Kaslin · 147 replies ^ | January 5, 2022 | Michael Brown
    As happened to many other Americans during the Christmas break, both my wife and I came down with COVID, marking the first time either of us contracted it. (I write this article on day 9, and we are on the mend, albeit slowly.) Both of us have been far sicker at other times in our lives, and compared to how others have suffered over these last two years, our cases appear to be fairly mild. At the same time, this is the longest I have been sick since 2014 (when I made a radical lifestyle change), and there’s something about...
  • Let’s Pray for Brandon

    12/28/2021 6:18:05 AM PST · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | December 28, 2021 | Michael Brown
    Now that you clicked on this article, I have a confession to make. It has nothing to do with the “Let’s Go Brandon!” chant that has swept the nation, let alone with the explicit, vulgar, anti-Biden chant that it now represents. Nor does this article have anything to do with that Brandon, meaning NASCAR driver Brandon Brown. But it does have to do with another Brandon, gay pastor Brandon Robertson. And this article is a call to pray for this very devoted, yet very misled young man.If you can spare about 30 minutes, I strongly encourage you to watch this...
  • Trump Knocked the Door Down; Let Someone Else Walk Through It

    12/12/2021 3:19:03 AM PST · by Kaslin · 175 replies ^ | December 12, 2021 | Michael Brown
    Donald Trump’s greatest accomplishment as president may not have been the policies he enacted or the justices he appointed. Instead, as important as those accomplishments were and are, it is possible that the most important thing he did as president was to say to the political world, “I will not play your games. I am the champion of the people, not a member of the good old boys club.” But now that he has broken the mold, thrown out the old rule book, and forged a new path of leadership, it will be best in 2024 for another conservative leader...
  • Do Not Gloat When Your Enemy Falls

    12/12/2021 3:50:07 AM PST · by Kaslin · 47 replies ^ | December 12, 2021 | Michael Brown
    If you are on the political right, you might view TV commentators like Chris Cuomo or Rachel Maddow as “the enemy.” In the same way, many on the political left view commentators like Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity as “the enemy.” It is no surprise, therefore, that many are on the right are gloating over CNN’s firing of Chris Cuomo, just as many on the left gloated when Bill O’Reilly had to leave Fox. But the Book of Proverbs has something to say about this, stating “Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your...
  • Do You Become a ‘Closet Liberal’ the Moment You Question a Single Conservative Talking Point?

    11/22/2021 6:19:21 AM PST · by Kaslin · 99 replies ^ | November 22, 2021 | Michael Brown
    To be clear, though, from the outset, this article is not about me. It is about the question of what it means to be a conservative. I simply use myself as an example. My question for consideration is this. If you have voted exclusively Republican for decades (including voting for Trump in 2016 and 2020), you are a staunch, Bible-based moral conservative on marriage and family issues, and you have consistently spoken out against the leftwing, Democratic agenda, how do you then become a “closet liberal”? According to one commenter (with reference to me): “This writer is a closet liberal....
  • The DOJ is Told to Review Federal Charges for Kyle Rittenhouse After Jury Found Him ‘Not Guilty’ on All Counts

    11/19/2021 3:56:07 PM PST · by · 109 replies ^ | November 19, 2021 | Kyle Becker
    The persecution of Kyle Rittenhouse continues. Even after a jury of his peers found the 18-year-old “not guilty” on all five counts in his high profile case, Democrat leaders are calling on the Department of Justice to intervene in the Rittenhouse case on “civil rights” grounds. House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler called on the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse case for possible federal charges. This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage...
  • Whatever Happened to Trump Being Restored to the White House This Year?

    11/15/2021 4:02:23 AM PST · by Kaslin · 286 replies ^ | November 15, 2021 | Michael Brown
    The purpose of this article is not to mock, ridicule, or insult. Nor am I here to gloat or say, “I told you so.” Instead, I want to make a simple, two-fold appeal: First, can we be realistic and recognize that Trump will not be restored to the White House by some kind of military act or miraculous event (other than simply running again in 2024)? Second, can we be mature enough to acknowledge our errors, learn from our mistakes, and move on? In short, can we make this a teachable moment? When I announced on the radio on January...
  • Why the Heavy-Handed Mandate Bullying?

    10/21/2021 8:42:42 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 36 replies ^ | October 21, 2021 | Michael Brown
    I am not an anti-vaxxer, and plenty of my friends and colleagues have been vaccinated. And, from the perspective of those who believe that the Covid vaccinations are safe and effective and even life-saving, I can understand the desire to see everyone vaccinated. But what I cannot possibly understand is the threatening, vindictive, heavy-handed bullying in conjunction with the mandates. Not only are these unfair and even cruel, but they give fuel to the fire of those who view the mandates as nothing less than dangerous governmental overreach. Consider this October 18 story on The Hill which states that, “Chicago...

    At the risk of pummeling an already, very dead horse, allow me to ask you once again: so, how is your pro-life vote for Joe Biden looking right now?As I’ve said repeatedly in the past, I can understand if you could not cast your vote for Donald Trump, despite all the good that he did. In your view, the damage he did and the example he set more than outweighed the positives. And so, as a lover of Jesus and the Word of God, you could not vote for him.But a vote for Biden, specifically, as a pro-life evangelical? What...

    On Tuesday morning, when I went to use my Twitter account, I was greeted by a different screen than normal. It contained one single tweet of mine, beneath which was a large red button labeled “Remove.” I had violated Twitter guidelines, because of which I was blocked from using my account. The two options were to remove the offending tweet or to appeal. I chose to appeal.To give the relevant background, over the weekend, I had posted a comment on both Twitter and Facebook, saying, “To those who are outraged over the fact that many Americans still choose not to...

    It is very possible that Donald Trump will continue to have great political influence in the years to come. It is also possible that he will have the health and vitality to run for president again in 2024. It is even possible that he will win. But one thing is sure: Donald Trump will not be reinstated as president this year or, for that matter, any year before 2024. Sorry, but facts are facts.
  • Father of police victim Michael Brown joins anti-BLM leadership movement as more chapters demand to know where $90MILLION is being spent after $3m property empire of Patrisse Cullors was exposed

    The father of a black teen shot dead by police has joined-in demands to know what Black Lives Matter's $90 million funds have been used for after its co-founder's $3 million property portfolio was exposed. Michael Brown Sr - whose 18 year-old son Michael Brown was shot dead by a cop in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, added his name to the BLM 10 Plus movement. It is comprised of the original 10 Black Lives Matter chapters, and is seeking transparency and accountability from BLM about how its cash has been used. Co-founder Patrice Cullors resigned last month after her $3...
  • Why I Am Hopeful About the New Israeli Government

    Evangelical Christians who have become used to the effective leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest serving prime minister, may have grave concerns about the newly formed coalition government. But I believe there is good reason to hope that this new government might be just what Israel needs. When I was asked by the New York Times about evangelical reaction to the potential ouster of Netanyahu, I replied, “Your average American evangelical would think it’s a tragedy if Netanyahu is out. It will be similar in many of their minds to Trump losing to Biden.” Despite those concerns, however,...

    In response to Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner announcing his bid to oust California’s governor Gavin Newsom, Joy Behar said on The View, “He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign.” Later, Behar added, “I think that he should — she, rather, should take a seat and let somebody with the credentials take over a major state like California.”Behar subsequently apologized for the “pronoun mix-up,” explaining, “but, whatever, it just came out so I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that.”But the damage had been done. Joy Behar had “misgendered” Jenner, something that I seriously doubt would have happened if Jenner...
