The Blind Man Can See Clearly

The saga of Chen Guangcheng is not over. For those who haven’t been following this story, let me summarize. Chen is a blind Chinese human rights activist. China’s policy of limiting the number of children a family can have has led to many forced abortions. Chen’s “crime” was to expose this unbridled government genocide against innocent children. China’s history of disrespect for human rights is well documented. For this activity, he was sentenced in 2006 to four years in jail…. Read more »

Calling Evil Good

President Obama’s declaration last week that he approves of gay marriage was no surprise to me. In fact, anyone who really believed he wasn’t in favor of it had to be living in a fantasy world. His worldview, which is mainstream radicalism, naturally leads him to it. His professed faith, which departs severely from Biblical roots, is no barrier to it. Already we had seen his administration, through the Department of Justice, refuse to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act,… Read more »

Gleanings from Proverbs 10

Ill-gotten gains do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death. … Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. He who gathers in summer is a son who acts wisely, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who acts shamefully. … He who walks in integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will be found out. … Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all transgressions. …… Read more »

It’s Time for Boldness

Political campaigns historically rely on exaggerations to make a point. Of course, “exaggeration” is oftentimes a euphemism for lying. There’s a line that can be crossed, and we need to know when that occurs in order to make an appropriate judgment on whatever accusation is being leveled at an opponent. I’m predicting this presidential campaign, particularly on the Democrat side, will be one for the ages when it comes to blatant, outright lying. The desire for power, and to be… Read more »

Sin, Repentance, & Judgment: A Neglected Message

A week ago, I wrote a post I called “The Moral Majority?” In it, I outlined two misperceptions I believe are hampering efforts to turn around the culture. The first misperception is that too many of us think we still live in a majority Judeo-Christian society. We think we’ll just eventually come to our senses and everything will be alright. The second misperception is that we can live a Christian life without holiness. We blend too easily into our culture… Read more »

Avenger Obama Going “Forward”

I wrote a post a few days ago about the Obama campaign’s new slogan, “Forward.” It’s so ripe for parody, it’s almost too easy to do. Examples abound, many with the same theme: What were they thinking by promoting this slogan? The cartoonist Michael Ramirez may have figured it out: Obamacare is nowhere to be found in any current Obama ads. Wonder why? What does he have that he can tout? Well, one thing: Maybe you can get the T-shirt:… Read more »

Poster Child for the Zombie Nation

If you haven’t seen “The Life of Julia,” you need to Google it. She’s a fictional character created by the Obama campaign to demonstrate how government helps people. If you watch the entire thing, though, you come away with the distinct impression that people—perhaps women, in particular—are utterly helpless without government aid. This campaign ploy is the best/worst advertisement for  the cradle-to-grave nanny state that I’ve seen in some time. “Julia” only succeeds because of government. There is no mention… Read more »
