Question: Does a candidate's faith matter?

Some Christians believe that all candidates they vote for must be born again.

Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve

I believe it was Edmund Burke who said “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. Well yesterday in hundreds of Christian churches across the nation, pastors placed Korans next to Bibles and many read from the Koran as part of their so called “worship service”.    I am […]

Truth or Consequences

This Sunday, hundreds of “christian” churches will have Korans in their pews and many pastors will read from the Koran as part of their church service.  All in the name of “unity”. I wonder how many Mosques will allow the Bible, the absolute truth of God’s Word, to be read on Sunday?  Sadly, probably none.  […]
