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 .........
