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…

The Death of Free Speech

“If in this country we ever have to face a state of things in which on one side stand the men of high ideals who are honest, good, well-meaning, pleasant people, utterly unable to put those ideals into shape in the rough field of practical life, while on the other side are grouped the strong, powerful, efficient men with no ideals: then the end of the Republic will be near.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

We’re All Inmates in the American Police State

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ~Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom (1913)

Ten Principles for Standing Up to Tyranny

“If we lose the virile, manly qualities, and sink into a nation of mere hucksters, putting gain over national honor, and subordinating everything to mere ease of life, then we shall indeed reach a condition worse than that of the ancient civilizations in the years of their decay.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Country*

“If America were a house, the Left would root for the termites.” ~Greg Gutfeld

So now we have the rotting timbers, the memory of what was, the dream of what might have been, and the mess to clean up. What are we going to do about it? Continue reading

Evolution Is Godlessness

Anthropology

“The fool has said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1).

It is hard for people to admit that they have been intellectually swindled. So when creationists knock evolution, defenders of evolution begin to talk about the science of evolution—“science falsely so called” (1 Timothy 6:20). Continue reading

Deceived

“Communism is a Satanic movement devoted to human degradation and enslavement, not … social justice. Of course, no one would support it if they knew the truth.”
~Henry Makow

Until you realize Communists operate by stealth and are out to destroy America—until you know and can recognize their tactics—you will not be able to interpret the news. My generation knew the threat of Communism: today’s generation thinks Communism is dead. It isn’t. Continue reading
