    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)It's been said that the most important event in human history was the birth of Christ. When you examine this claim with an open mind, there can be no denying it, as there is clearly no event that has reverberated throughout the world that effected so many for so long by altering the course of history forever. In a book written by cultural historian Christopher Dawson,...
  • Why Whoever Is “Running Biden” Is More Dangerous Than Marx

    Not all ideas are equal. Some have less intrinsic value. Some are downright bad. Some are inherently dangerous.Yet one of the reasons that the framers of our nation protected the expression of ideas was so that most could be evaluated and the individual could choose to reject or advance them.Team Biden is full of bad & inherently dangerous ideas. 1. Biological sex is meaningless. 2. Racial makeup means everything. 3. Life has no value. 4. Laws, boundaries & accountability don’t matter. 5. Private property doesn’t exist. 6. Women are bleeding/birthing people. 7. Fathers are oppressive. 8. Faith & Belief are...

    On schools, the Father of the Reformation, Martin Luther, said: I am much afraid that the universities will prove to be the great gates of hell, unless they diligently labour in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not unceasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corruptTragically, the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in America have proven this wise adage true. In the world today, there are few things more corrupt than the...

    On the surface of recent polls, Christianity may seem alive and well in the United States. They say around 65% of Americans identify as Christians. But digging a little deeper reveals that not all is as it seems. According to podcaster and author Natasha Crain, a mere 10% of the population actually understand or engages in a Biblical worldview.Watch the show on Locals or listen to it on Apple Podcasts.Crain is a national speaker, author of three books with a fourth on the way, and blogger whose passion is to equip Christian parents to raise kids with an understanding of...

    If you don't have time to read my review of Tom Holland's Dominion, here it is in three words: Read this book. A few more words: Buy this book, give this book to friends, and encourage them to read it. "Dominion" is not only rich, seductive, eye-opening, conversation-sparking, and occasionally surprisingly witty, it is urgently necessary. Read this book – before it's too late. Why do I endorse "Dominion" so zealously? Let me tell you a few stories. I was a schoolgirl in New Jersey. I sat next to "Aisha." She moved like a butterfly and, quiet and shy, she...

    American Greatness ^ | 27 Sep, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The hard Left believes its mission is so critical, so morally superior, that all means can be justified to achieve its noble ends. And so almost every institution that the Left has in its line of vision is now petrifying. There was once a tradition of Democratic liberalism. But that wing of the Democratic Party no longer exists and died sometime in the 1990s. Old-style liberalism has been absorbed by Progressivism at best and unapologetic socialism at worst—in a journey on the supposedly predetermined arc of history that bends toward 1984. The new-old leftist aim is not to operate within...

    Teleios conducted a survey regarding the benefits to a Christian society with 565 responses. The majority of responders were: female (78%), <35 years (67%), from the United States (60%) or Europe (13%), and evangelical (88%). A slight plurality (46%) believed they were living in a Christian based society versus secular (45%). Respondents noted advantages to living in a Christian society, compared to any other type of society (41%) and compared only to a secular society (18%). Participants indicated the top 3 potential advantages of a Christian society were a stronger moral (82%) and ethical base (71%) as well as greater...
  • 10 signs you lack a biblical worldview

    Christian Post ^ | 09/06/2020 | Joseph Mattera
    Throughout the years, I have discovered that the average Christian, along with many ministers, lack a biblical worldview. When I use the term "biblical worldview," I’m referring to the practice of interpreting life through the lens of Scripture. That is to say, your view of such issues as politics, the sanctity of life, marriage, economics, education, science, the law, etc., should derive from biblical principles. The average believer usually has only a piecemeal understanding of Scripture instead of a comprehensive world and life view. As a result, we have seen the Church become irrelevant in the public square. If we...

    Christian Post ^ | 08/09/2020 | Brandon Showalter
    A new survey shows that the majority of Americans no longer believe that Jesus is the path to salvation and instead believe that being a good person is sufficient. As part of the ongoing release of the Arizona Christian University-based Cultural Research Center's American Worldview Inventory, the latest findings — exploring perceptions of sin and salvation — from George Barna, the group's director, show that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that having some kind of faith is more important than the particular faith with which someone aligns. Sixty-eight percent who embrace that notion identify as Christians, including 56% of self-described...
  • Does Mathematics = Western Imperialism?

    American Thinker ^ | Nancy Pearcey
    Is mathematics next on the chopping block to be deconstructed as a form of "Western imperialism"? A young woman describing herself as a teacher, Ph.D. student, and "social justice change agent," recently gained notoriety for tweeting, "The idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural," a product of "western imperialism/colonialism." Yes, even mathematics, held up as the most objective and neutral of disciplines, is being reshaped by critical theory, which claims that all ideas are social constructions by groups using their power to advance their own interests. *snip* Critical theorists argue that mathematics is just another arbitrary human creation that has...

    Editor's Note: The following piece is an excerpt from Scott's upcoming book Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice: An Urgent Appeal to Fellow Christians in a Time of Social Crisis. The horrific murder of George Floyd has renewed a sincere cry from many evangelical leaders to speak out against racism in America.Racism is a great and ever-present evil. As followers of Jesus, we must uphold the truth that all people, regardless of skin-color, ethnicity, sex, or socio-economic status, are made in God’s image, with inherent worth and dignity. Nearly all evangelical Christians agree on this point. Here is where...

    Try to stand back and objectively look at the span of time here on earth; from the Tower of Babel with its global catalyst of godlessness and passion to live an existence without Almighty God, to the worldly brilliance and idolatrous society of Egypt. From the autocratic power of the Babylonians to the strength of the Media Persians Empire. From the conquering speed and philosophy of Greece to the decadent and oppressive Roman Empire. From the genus and barbarity of the Aztec, Mayans, and Incas, to the godless vacuum of the European nations and lust for war. All of these...

    Until this year, the first 20 pages of “Witness” by Whittaker Chambers (Random House, 1952) comprised the most brilliant preface or foreword I’d ever read. Chambers, who had crossed over from Communism to Christianity, explained that Communism is “man’s second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of the Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: ‘Ye shall be as gods.’” And gods play to win, as Chambers goes on to show during the next 788 pages, which are good but not as good as the beginning. The first 17 pages of historian...
  • The Left-Right Divide Is About Reality Itself

    The left-right divide in America is, unfortunately, unbridgeable. There are three reasons. First, we are divided by our vision of what we want America to be. The right believes the founders' vision was brilliant and moral, that bourgeois middle-class values are superior to alternative value systems; that rights come from God, not man; and that the state must be as small as possible. The left (not liberals) shares none of those values. Second, we are divided by the means we use to achieve our vision. Given their different ends, left and right obviously differ on what means to use to...
  • Google's Satellites Could Soon See Your Face from Space

    Two months ago, after much lobbying by the biggest satellite company in North America, DigitalGlobe, the US government relaxed restrictions to allow for commercially available satellite imagery up to 25 cm resolution—twice as detailed as the previous limit of 50 cm. Now, the first commercial satellite set to capture these high-res images, DigitalGlobe's Worldview-3, will launch this Wednesday. The extra sharp images from Worldview-3 will greatly increase the maps' level of detail to the point where it can make out 10-inch objects, which means Google will soon be able to see “manholes and mailboxes” from its hired eyes in the...
  • World View reaches new milestone in Stratollite development

    WASHINGTON — World View announced June 5 it performed the longest flight to date of its stratospheric balloon, demonstrating its ability to carry out missions traditionally reserved for satellites. The company said its Stratollite balloon system recently completed a 16-day test flight, taking off May 18 from the company’s headquarters in Tucson, Arizona, and landing June 3 in Nevada. Prior to this flight, the longest flight by a Stratollite was five days. In addition to proving its ability for extended flights, the Stratollite also demonstrated its ability to maintain position. That included “multiple” tests where the balloon stayed within an...

    Can Islam Be Defeated? Two of the questions I am most often asked are, “Why does Islam seem so attractive to converts?” and “Can Islam be defeated?” Not surprisingly, these two questions are interrelated. There are many elements to Islam that attract Western converts today, including its seeming clarity on right/wrong, its unwavering commitment to monotheism and its appeal to anti-Jewish and anti-Christian sentiments in our post-Christian culture. But I believe there is an even greater appeal to the heart of fallen human nature. In the New Testament, the apostle Paul speaks of the fallen human heart as the life...
  • Intellectual Poverty on the Left - Arrogance is no substitute for intellectual humility

    05/21/2019 3:25:46 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 10 replies
    You may have noticed that conservatives are blessed with an impressive lineup of intellectual heavyweights. Liberals have none, literally none. A few of those on the conservative side are Thomas Sowell, Victor Davis Hanson, Dennis Prager, Shelby Steele, Jordon Peterson, and Mark Levin. *snip* You cannot name a single liberal who has anything approaching the above credentials or intellectual output. Why? There are a number of reasons. Liberalism is fundamentally about feelings rather than thoughts. Also the left focuses on intentions, the right focuses on results and the ways by which results are achieved. An advantage of making intentions your...

    As Christians around the world enter the holiest weekend of the year, non-Christians as well should be grateful for the life of Jesus of Nazareth.  As I show in my book, Christianity and the World: Essays Philosophical, Historical, and Cultural (Stairway Press 2017), there isn’t a facet of 21st century human life, particularly life in Western civilization, that doesn’t bear the impress of the religion that has informed the collective consciousness of European peoples for the last two millennia. As the Reverend D. James Kennedy puts it, Jesus of Nazareth is “the greatest man who ever lived” and “has changed virtually every...

    To write a thorough and well-documented history of the Left is an impressive accomplishment in itself.  To write such a history so that it reads with the ease and flow of a good, gripping novel is another thing altogether, but that is what Mark Melcher and Stephen Soukup have done with Know Thine Enemy: A History of the Left (Volume One).  This comprehensive history of the Left’s major figures and movements is page-turning read for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the threat to America’s culture, politics, and future posed by the Left’s radical agenda.The book’s opening alerts the reader...
