Will we worship America and protect Islam or will we worship God and defeat it?

Everything in God’s creation is constantly about the business of validating His nature as revealed in His Word. Everything. “There is not one single, solitary maverick molecule in the universe”, as R.C. Sproul might say. All of creation belongs to God and it is all in the process – even at this very moment – […]

Menasha High School

Clearing the air about the Menasha High School story

School Board Meeting Oct 27 One parent called to tell me that last night’s school board meeting had a “disappointing turnout, and the topic was not discussed,” in spite of several area churches encouraging its Menasha congregants to attend. Another of our listeners, Rachel, reports: My husband and I went to the Menasha School board […]

EbolaAirways

Of course Ebola is airborne. It flies in from Africa all the time.

So the hits just keep a-comin’… Sure, ISIS, Ebola and the like are inherently horrifying and all, but it’s the way in which these threats are understood and handled by our “leaders” that just seems to amplify the tragedy and terror in…well…a sometimes comically awful sort of way. Has this year not been one incredible run […]

Are you calmly embracing reality?

So we now have two confirmed Ebola sufferers who contracted the virus from America’s Ebola Airways-delivered Patient Zero, Thomas Duncan. Both of them are trained professional medical workers who, presumably, took fairly thorough precautions in dealing with Mr. Duncan. Since the arrival of that first viral seed, Ebola Air has brought us a second opportunity for […]

Hillsong’s “Clarification” on homosexuality

Following Hillsong Church Pastor Brian Houston’s comments about homosexuality here, he had to answer a firestorm of emails and bad press from everyone – from the homosexual groups to the secularists to the Christians.

Preparing for Ebola with Confidence and Hope

Since last week’s revelation of America’s own Patient Zero having been diagnosed with the Ebola virus, many of us have become either glued, unglued, or both. Americans by the tens of millions have become glued to their computers, radios, televisions and cell phones for the latest developments, and sometimes unglued by falling headlong into “NOOOOOOO! It’s the end […]

Idolatry

America’s lesson to creation: Pride, freedom and liberty are stupid, destructive, and gay…when centered on anything but God.

What does pride, freedom, and liberty look like when severed from the law and nature of God their basis? We are increasingly able to provide a one-word answer to that ugly question, and that answer is: America. As reported earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States has turned away appeals Monday from five states […]

Faith, Courage, and Hope in the Face of Ebola

What a difference a day makes. Just 24 hours ago, we had not yet gotten the news that an Ebola-infected “patient zero” had been diagnosed in America. Up until that moment, many of us prayed and hoped that this devastating plague would not find its way to our land. Others artificially preserved their optimistic take through an ignorance-is-bliss […]

Enemy of the Statist: Christ-Centered Liberty vs. Man-Centered Tyranny

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole […]

New Christian film, “The Song,” not for the kiddies

There are a lot of great films out there that are family-friendly for Christians. This one, however, is a little too, um, hot. The new film, “The Song,” is based on Song of Solomon, and rated PG-13. But they’re advertising it more like the story of David when he commits adultery with Bathsheba. In fact […]

My, what a lovely picture of Satan you have there!

The above gem of a meme-starter-wannabe was spotted on Facebook a little while back, so I set it aside and admired it for a while before sharing it with folks at Fire Breathing Christian and here at Stand Up for the Truth. In this rendition we are treated to the 47,342,916th incarnation of “do not judge” Jesus, also […]

Two words to help us trust, obey, and adore God.

How reliable is God? How sure are His promises? Does He ever have (or need) a Plan ‘B’? These are important questions to ask. How we answer them will greatly impact our approach to proclaiming the Gospel and applying the Great Commission, particularly in the dark and darkening culture in which our Lord has placed […]

Weaponized “Love”: The perversion of Christian love into a weapon of Christian persecution

Ever been called a big, bad meanie for sharing Truth publicly? Ever been called disruptive, divisive, unkind or unloving for taking a clear, public stand on a culturally controversial issue that’s addressed in detail within the pages of Scripture? Have you ever been pressured to be silent after speaking up in such a manner? Have you ever been persecuted […]
