According to polls, most Americans now believe that people can be good (moral) without God. However, Jesus taught that God is the only good and apart from God there is no good (Mark 10:18). Therefore, to deny God is to discard good or morality, since it denies the Judge of all the earth, who alone is the final arbiter of good and evil, as well as the One to whom all men must ultimately answer.
Atheism has no morals, because it has no God! Without belief in God, morality becomes a mere matter of each man's individual and subjective opinion, which is no more authoritative than any other man's opinion. Therefore, what atheists call morality is just their personal opinions of what is right and wrong for themselves. It is ............

Are all Christians divinely duty bound to pray for Joe Biden's complete recovery from COVID-19? According to Franklin Graham, we are. Graham wrote to his millions of followers on social media: "We need to lift him [Biden] up in prayer. The Bible instructs us to pray for all those in authority, and that includes whether we agree with their policies and politics or not." While most contemporary Christians, as well as clergymen, would give Graham a hearty "Amen," does the Bible really teach that Christians are divinely duty bound to pray for the health and wellbeing of all of those in authority, as well as for the blessing of God to be upon them, regardless of their policies or politics?
If it does, then German............

Racism, like so many things in today's upside down America, has come to mean the opposite of what it once meant. For instance, a first-grader in California was recently disciplined for writing "any lives matter" on a Black Lives Matter (BLM) drawing. Unlike yesterday's America, where it would have been considered racism to declare that only the lives of a particular race matter, in today's America, first-graders are castigated for declaring that all lives, not just those of a particular race, matter.
At the same time this first-grader in California was disciplined for being colorblind in her conviction of what lives matter, BLM protestors in Minneapolis, who were protesting the police shooting of a black ............

Ronald Reagan once said, "We could say that government spends money like a drunken sailor, but that would be unfair to drunken sailors, because the sailors spend their own money." Government spends our money, since it has no money of its own. It has, as John Randolph called it, "That most delicious of all privileges—spending other people's money." To believe that runaway government spending will ever be slowed down, much less stopped, is to prove oneself to be the most naive of ninnies. We are, much to our chagrin, in the throes of what all democracies come to, as was predicted by Alexander Fraser Tytler long ago.
According to Tytler: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It.........

There are major truths to be found in the minor prophets. A great example is the book of Habakkuk.
The Prophet Habakkuk was the recipient of a God-given burden; that is, of a heavy and solemn word, which he was divinely charged to proclaim, in spite of how unbelievable and unpopular it would prove to be. The Hebrew word for “burden” in Habakkuk 1:1, can also be translated “oracle,” which means “a threatening message of impending doom.”
Among the biblical prophets, one is hard pressed to find a more timely message for our day and time than the message of the Prophet Habakkuk, whose message is as contemporary as our morning newspapers. It’s a message found in a most intriguing ............

The time is fast approaching when American Christians will be forced to choose between pledging allegiance to our country or to Christ. Although the two are considered by most Christians in America to be synonymous with one another, they've actually become antonymous to one another, since our country has become antichrist. While most modern-day American evangelicals look for a beast (world leader) to arise and lead the end-time world's final all-out-assault on Christ and His church, they're oblivious to the fact that they're actually living right now in the belly of the emerging and biblically predicted end-time beast (superpower).
The beastly theme runs throughout Scripture, starting with the beastly sin of fallen .........

There are only three divinely ordained institutions in our world, the government, the church, and the oldest of the three, the home.
THE GOVERNMENT: The God-given responsibility of government is the protection of its citizenry from evil (Romans 13:1-7). This explains why government alone is given the sword to wield in criminal prosecution and national defense. Any individual attempting to usurp government's God-given role is guilty of being either a vigilante or mercenary.
THE CHURCH: The God-given responsibility of the church is the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:18-20). The church, as the lone recipient of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ, serves as the lone steward.........

Although the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade on the grounds that the Constitution is neutral on the issue of abortion, its decision does not make abortion either unconstitutional or illegal. It is, in my opinion, unbelievable that 63 million unborn children have been aborted over the last 49 years in America on the basis of an illegitimate 1973 Supreme Court Decision—Roe v Wade—that has now been found by our current Supreme Court to have had absolutely no constitutional basis. However, it is not only unbelievable to me that a former Supreme Court concocted a contrived constitutional right for a woman to terminate the life of her unborn child, but also that our present Supreme Court has failed to recognize and uphold the .........

Henry Grattan Guinness, who was known as the Irish "Spurgeon," acutely asserted that history was the interpreter of prophecy. According to him, "the sufferings and glories of our Lord, foretold in the Old Testament, remained [incomprehensible] until their meaning was revealed by the [historical] events of [the New Testament]." Since "prophecy is history written in advance," Guinness argued that "history...takes the place of prophecy" as "the foretold [becomes] fulfilled.”
Today, the biblically foretold end of time is unfolding before our very eyes. However, most evangelicals are shutting their eyes to how current events correspond to Bible prophecy. They refuse to acknowledge what ............

The message of the Bible is repentance. It is the message the prophets preached (Ezekiel 14:6). It is the message John the Baptist preached (Matthew 3:1-2). It is the message Jesus preached (Matthew 4:17). It is the message Christ's Apostles preached (Acts 2:38). And it is the message Christ's commissioned His church to preach to everyone and every nation (Luke 24:47). The message of repentance is the call to all men everywhere to turn from their sin with broken hearts and to turn to Christ with all their hearts, so that Christ can forgive them of their sin and free them from it.
However, President Joe Biden has signed an executive order that declares the Biblical message of repentance hostile to the rights of the .........
