1 Corinthians 6:17 urges believers to separate themselves from popular culture. With Christian and conservative voices being banned, it’s time to take a stand, draw a line and establish a Christian economy.

The title of Andrew Torba’s blog, The Silent Christian Secession, caught my attention because I have thought that type of action was long overdue.

So, when the founder of social media platform Gab addressed the topic, I felt compelled to read it and I’m glad I did. It was refreshing to know there was a least one other person who felt that, as Christians, we need our own economy that is completely separate from “the world.”

Torba and Gab were forced into taking action after more than 25 business partners stopped associating with the company. …

America was founded as a Christian nation and, as such, has been the catalyst for bringing the Word of God to the rest of the world. If Christianity falls in America, the consequences would be huge.

I made a comment to someone the other day that resulted in a lively discussion. We were talking about how one of the biggest mission fields on earth is right outside our front door in America, meaning our own neighborhoods.

I noted it’s sad that American churches will pay $25,000 to send 10 people oversees for a week to build a wall, dig a hole or lead children in games when they don’t even speak the language fluently. Yet, they’ll ignore the fact more people are abandoning Christianity in America today than at any other point in history.

A study…

The same rules used in 2016 should apply in 2020. Then, after the current Supreme Court appointment is completed, states should take steps to trim the Senate’s power with a constitutional amendment

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this week. Her death was tragic in that she was admired by many, but a blessing because of the suffering she experienced over the past few years.However, her death leaves a hole in a nine-person court that is almost always divided five to four on every case. So, you know a Supreme Court vacancy would be a political hot button in an already polarized nation.

Ginsburg had not yet assumed room temperature before politicians fully embraced hypocrisy all for political purposes. This is why people absolutely hate politics even more than politicians.

Ginsburg vs. Scalia

I’ve been a Netflix subscriber since the late 1990s, and I’m deeply disturbed about a movie that sexualizes kids. But, do I really want to participate in the cancel culture myself?

How do I let Netflix know their decision is wrong without engaging in a cancel culture that I despise?

Netflix released a movie this week titled Cuties, and it’s causing a lot of uproar about its content.

The French film centers around the lives of four 11- and 12-year-old girls who are competing to enter a dance contest. The main character is a girl growing up in a Muslim home who is rebelling against that culture. She does so by engaging in the very behavior she knows her family will despise.

Ironically, in some Muslim cultures, females are frequently flogged and even executed for exhibiting that type of behavior. But, the movie portrays the activity as normal.

The movie…

Before we spend trillions to kill a whole bunch of people, destroy property and create refugees, we should save time with a peaceful succession today

Civil War I remains the bloodiest war ever fought in the United States where 3 percent of the nation’s population suffered injuries or died. More than 620,000 people were killed in that four-year war. Nearly 900,000 were injured or suffered some type of disease.

With advancements in weaponry, Civil War II promises to deliver even more casualties and destruction of public and private property.

Officials estimate that war between the states cost American taxpayers $5.2…

America remains a tinderbox of withered souls desperately in need of living water. In January, America was polarized nearly 50–50 along political, sexual, racial and generational ideologies. Then came COVID-19.

Events of last week shouldn’t have surprised anyone because America has been a wildfire in search of a spark for quite some time.

Yet, after flareups around the nation, conditions remain favorable for that fire to spread widely and rapidly to cause as much destruction as possible.

The environment which sparked this week’s unrest actually began years ago when America started withering as its citizens — and especially its leaders — cut themselves from the vine of God’s word, which is the source of living water. (Revelation 7:17)

John 15:5 makes that point perfectly clear when Jesus told his followers…

Christians can feel needless guilt, especially when they struggle to overcome a stronghold sin in their lives. Satan loves convincing them they can never change, that they are hopeless in God’s eyes and are more perverted than anyone else on earth. They are all lies designed specifically to keep you from a fruitful relationship with a truly loving God. (Image from Adobe Stock)

We all suffer from stinkin’ thinkin’ at one time or another. It’s unavoidable.

Fortunately, God offers an antidote to the poisonous thinking that we sometimes allow to invade our minds. It can be found in Romans 8:1 — “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

And why is that? That answer is in Romans 8:2 — “because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”

Romans 8:1 is one of my all-time favorite passages in the Bible, and was a real life saver for me.

I had been obsessed with pornography for many, many years…

As the COVID-19 panic subsided, the New York Times published a sensationalized story attempting to invoke more fear regarding a potential invasion of insects. (Photo accompanied the New York Times story)

With people growing weary of the COVID-19 panic, apparently Asian Murder Hornets are the next big thing the media wants us to be fearful about.

How the story is being reported exposes yet another example of fear mongering by influential media, as shown in this New York Times report. Using very descriptive words and a scary photo of a large insect, the paper sought not just to inform people, but to terrorize them regarding a potentially new threat.

The article offered these choice “unbiased” descriptions, which I highlighted in bold:

  • “Sightings of the Asian giant hornet have prompted fears that…

Can a “religious tribunal” nullify a marriage, especially one that lasted 26 years and produced three children? Apparently, the Roman Catholic Church thinks so. (Image from Adobe Stock)

I opened the mail this week to discover that 26 years and two days of my life had disappeared. Poof. Evaporated. It never happened.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee officially annulled my marriage. Legally, it ended April 15, 2010. But, according to some religious tribunal, it ended in God’s eyes on March 5, 2020.

I immediately called my three adult daughters to see if they disappeared, too, because their presence on earth certainly serves as proof that the marriage did, in fact, exist.

But, I was still left with a nagging question: Which marriage was annulled?

Was it the marriage officially ordained by a judge on Friday, April 13, 1984, at 13:13 in his chambers inside the Dane County Courthouse in Madison, Wis.?

There is a big question weighing on the minds of many Christians in recent weeks as they watch elected officials and bureaucratic agencies enact restrictions that limit or roll back cherished freedoms.

Is it okay for Christians to practice civil disobedience?

It’s an important topic for me because I am not entirely trustful of the government’s COVID-19 narrative regarding the need for a nationwide shut down of our economy based on “what if” fear factors.

“Because our hospitals might be overrun with seriously ill patients some day, we must confine all Americans everywhere to their homes, shut down their businesses…
