We’ve all been in those Bible studies where a Scripture is read, then everyone takes their turn giving it’s interpretation in their own opinion.

Perceiving then that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by Himself." (John 6:14-15) Election Day is tomorrow … Continue reading President or Savior?
When it comes to watching the debate tonight there are many things to keep in mind. There are a lot of people who don't want to vote for Donald Trump, but there are still a lot of people who highly doubt they can even trust Hillary Clinton, so she's going to try to prove her credibility.

After giving Jesus presumptuous and bogus flattery they posed their question to Him in Mark 12:14, ‘Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? Should we pay them, or should we not?’ The first half of His answer in 12:17 is, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s…” Do you realize how … Continue reading Giving to Caesar and Giving to God

If not, to what degree should churches get involved? Is there one Christian position on politics? Does the Bible line up with … Continue reading A Politically Charged Game of Cat & Mouse

Why? a) They have an unhealthy zeal for the 2nd amendment. b) They detest liberals. c) They seem to live under … Continue reading Why Hyper-Conservative People Miss the Mark & Make Me Squirm
Fantastic post and must read by Al Mohler concerning President Obama's Prayer Breakfast: Presidents of the United States are usually awful as theologians.

Last night was a crazy evening if you were watching CNN or Fox News. The Republicans now have gained control in both the House and the Senate. One thing is for sure - the events of yesterday's midterm elections are causing either celebration or frustration depending on what side of the aisle you sit on. … Continue reading Republican Take Over in House & Senate – Why We Still Need Democracy
I know every now and then I can seem to be a bit controversial and say things in such a way so as to get a rise out of people. Should I say I'm sorry?
