Taking a Knee

“Take a knee in the blood-drenched sands of Fallujah in 110° heat. Trade in your pads for a Kevlar helmet and battle dress….You’ll have to stay hydrated, but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. And watch out for those IEDs when you take a knee. I am done with the NFL.” ~Anonymous

Do you know who really dislikes NFL players taking a knee? The military. Veterans. With cause. Continue reading

License to Drive

From Arts and Culture:

I recently learned about a new anti-government movement called traveling, or “the right to travel.” Included in that phrase is the so-called “right” to drive – without a valid license. Adherents of this movement claim that the right to travel, i.e. drive, is a vital part of sovereignty, “as fundamental to our existence as the right […] Continue reading →

Prestonwood: Pedophile Justice

Consider the Lilies

“Whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” – Matthew 18:6 (KJV)[1]

I’m a long-time fan of Prestonwood Baptist Church (Plano, Texas), pastored by Dr. Jack Graham. The choir’s orchestrated renditions of songs like “Fill this Temple,” “This Blood,” and “You are Worthy” are majestic. No one else can lead me into worshipful awe. So when I learned yesterday about a sex scandal at the church, I was floored.

john-langworthy prestonwoodIn 1989, John Langworthy, a youth music minister at Prestonwood, was fired “due to an allegation of impropriety” with teenage boys. But instead of reporting Langworthy to the police, Prestonwood conducted its own private investigation with victims, which is illegal. Why? Texas state law (1971-now) “require[s] professionals – including clergy – to report…

QUOTE (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn)


A_solzhenitsin“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

In honor of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, noble prize winning author and Soviet Union dissident, exiled from communist Russia on this day in 1974.

Pray for ISIS

Consider the Lilies

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” – Luke 23:34[1]

jesus-carries-the-cross christWhom did Jesus Christ forgive from the cross: the Roman soldiers or the crowd? Whomever his audience, instead of avenging himself Jesus left justice in his Father’s hands, to show mercy or judgment as he wills (Romans 9:15-18, 12:19). He knew that vengeance belonged to the Father alone (12:19). Seven weeks later, on the Day of Pentecost, three thousand people were saved (Acts 2:1, 41). Would this have happened if Jesus hadn’t said “forgive them”? I wonder.

“Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” – Acts 7:60

Stephen refused to avenge himself as he was dying at the hands of religious leaders. Stephen left justice in the Father’s hands instead. Saul, a Pharisee, stood by “consenting to his death” (Acts 7:58, 8:1, 22:20). Would God have saved this man and transformed him into the…
