But... My Chains are Gold!

What color are your chains? I know, that's an odd way to open a dialogue, but I'm curious. Are they painted with pictures of your family or friends or co-workers? Are they green and flowery because you escape every weekend to hike and enjoy nature? Maybe they're traditional cold steel from sins we would all recognize, but refuse to talk about in conservative circles.

True Face of Christianity

On a backdrop of Blackface bookended by a Green New Deal and a Red-faced President who refuses to release his tax returns a friend reposted a meme by "Tyrannowhale" that disparaged so-called Christians who crusade for total (dare I say mandatory?) prayer in school. As interesting as that idea may sound – every Christian will agree we really need God back in our schools – forcing prayer in school is wrong.

Tickle My Tribalistic Ears

To heal, we must kneel

On one hand it is legal to kill babies – heartbeat and all, piece by piece, no less – but on the other it is immoral for the sovereign United States to protect her borders. On one hand it is ok to ignore the past sexual sins of our leaders, but on the other we expect capitulation for racial sins from 1984. On one hand we expect soldiers to serve for a pittance and suffer lifelong debt for it, while on the other we give free college to DREAMers and invite them into the halls of Government.

What New York's pink tower says to pro-lifers

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the most radical pro-abortion bill our country has seen in a very long time. The so-called "Reproductive Health Act" removes abortion and, get this, the murder of a pregnant woman's baby, from the state's criminal code.

Ron Reagan Jr, atheist

The other night late on television there was a brief ad with President Reagan's son touting the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FRF), the "nation's largest, most effective association of atheists and agnostics," it boasts.

It's Christmas – Right?

As more and more stories emerge this year of the banning of all things Christ-like or Christmassy, you would be forgiven for thinking that the 1st Amendment really doesn't exist in America anymore and that we are living in the days of Oliver Cromwell or even the Holy Roman Empire once more!

Salvation Draws Nearer?

When the Apostle Paul told the Roman Christians that "our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed," (Rom. 13:11, NIV), was he implying that these believers were not yet saved, that they were only "nearer" to being saved?

Keeping It Real: Reclaiming Reality in 2019
