“Just as He said!”

As I was finishing my devotional reading of Matthew’s Gospel, I was struck by the words that the angel spoke to Mary Magdalene and the other Mary when they came to Jesus’ tomb on that glorious morning. What struck me was how good this news really is and what a healing balm it is to our soul, considering how often good news in this life doesn’t live up to expectations. Continue reading

Sorry, Jesus is NOT a Socialist

It amazes me how so many well-meaning Christians think that Jesus’ teaching is compatible with Socialism (I will address the meme on the right later in this post). As I’ve said many times now, Socialism is a deceptive anti-Christ religion because it seeks to replace Christianity, or Christ, with the State. Its faithful followers pursue a dream of some utopian “theocracy” of sorts, where the State is the “church” that forces total compliance and wealth redistribution in order to fulfill their idea of social equity and justice. Today, I’ll look at a few of the key Scriptures advocates use to say that Jesus was a Socialist and show why these assertions are patently false. Continue reading

Why Socialism is immoral

Socialism is a cancer that ultimately destroys every society where it’s allowed to fully matasticize. It’s appalling to see so many young people fooled by its thinly-veiled deceptions. And one of the biggest reasons why Socialism is evil is because it’s immoral. And it’s especially evil in this regard because it’s so deceptive. Continue reading

In case you didn’t know it, Sean Feucht and #LetUsWorship team held rallies in key places in Washington D.C. on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, culminating with a rally on the National Mall on September 12 . You can watch the whole rally here. There were many speakers, including Senator Josh Hawley, encouraging Americans to pray for America to wake up and turn to God. Continue reading

A wrong attitude leads to unfruitfulness

In Jesus’ parables that deal with His return, the point is not about what we’re doing when He returns but what we were doing while He was away. The two parables in Matthew 25 are no exception. In both parables, the return of the bridegroom and businessman took longer than expected. It seems that the five foolish virgins and the unfaithful steward both operated out of fear rather than faith. I want to look at the second parable about the talents (bags of gold coins) in particular here, and see how attitude affects our judgment and fruitfulness. Continue reading

Blow up your TV…turn off your smartphone

Since it seems that the mainstream media and Big Tech are busy profiting off of our own personal echo chambers while creating what seems like a mass psychosis, it might be a good time to unplug. I’m serious….you don’t really need all of those social media apps on your phone. They’re not your friend. Continue reading

When the “greater good” is not so good

“Is it not a display of compassion to sacrifice our personal interests for the greater good of our society?” This is the question that the video by Academy of Ideas asks in “How The Greater Good is Used as a Tool to Control Society.” I’ve included it below for my continuing look at how cultures can slip into tryanny. Continue reading

How democracy leads to tyranny

“There is the kind of State that seeks always to extend its administrative powers and functions into the realms of society, always seeking a higher degree of centralization in the conduct of its operations, always tending toward a wider measure of politicization of social, economic, and cultural life…It builds up a sense of the absolute identity of the State and society—nothing outside the State, everything in the State.” (Robert Nisbet) Continue reading

Tryanny or Freedom?

There are two human traits that seem to be immutable—that there are those who want power over others, and there are those who want to be ruled by others. What I want to show is how both of these traits are corrupted by weakness in human character. These trait then become carnal and even demonic. It’s the very opposite of how the kingdom of heaven works. Continue reading

Useful Idiots

“Communism succeeds because the people promoting it are not communists. They are the Useful Idiots” (James Simpson). The term “useful idiot” was the “attitude held by Vladimir Lenin towards communist sympathizers in America. While Lenin and the Soviets held them in utter contempt they also viewed them as tools for dispensing communist propaganda to other countries, thus infecting foreign cultures with their totalitarian tripe. After their mission was complete, they were no longer ‘useful.'” (Urban Dictionary) Continue reading
