The Lost Art of Bible Meditation

We have lost the great art of Bible meditation today, and we are the poorer for it. In 1987, newsman Ted Koppel gave a classic commencement speech at Duke, in which he famously said that Moses didn’t come down from Mt. Sinai carrying the “Ten Suggestions.” Note what Koppel then said about television and... -Read More


Before the ACLU Comes Knocking

In America, you should be free to disagree. But under a new form of tyranny, that is no longer the case. The left is saying in effect, “Do it our way or we’ll see you in court.” In the new America, the left is on its way to creating a climate where you have... -Read More


The High Price of Freedom

Nowhere is it written that America will always remain free. In fact, Thomas Jefferson and other founders warned about threats to our freedom. Jefferson noted that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Liberty does not exist in a vacuum. Signs of the erosion of freedom in our time surround us: Political correctness muzzles... -Read More


On the Resurrection-Just the Facts, Ma’am

If Jesus Christ walked out of His tomb after His death, then certainly everything He said about Himself — that He is the Lord, the way, the truth and the life—would all receive a stamp of approval. Why should we listen to Jesus? Because He was dead, and then He was alive. He showed... -Read More


Does Science Disprove God?

A Pew Research Poll released last week reports that fifty-nine percent of Americans see science and religion in conflict. But they also found that, “highly religious Americans are less likely than others to see conflict between faith and science.” I’m not a scientist, and I don’t play one on TV. But it’s amazing to... -Read More


Is the Bible Like Asbestos in the Public School?

Jerry Newcombe Good News   It is amazing that people today want to treat anything from the Bible as if it’s asbestos (to borrow a line from Christian attorney Jordan Lorence) if it somehow shows up in a public school. Historically, it was the push to teach the Bible that gave birth to education... -Read More


How Scalia Stood Strong for Decades

A great man has died, Antonin Scalia. Imagine his great homecoming to be with his Lord, whom he ultimately served. If there is not a royal battle over the appointment of his successor, then it would appear that the Republican Party has no pulse. Such a battle will be about what the future of... -Read More


Battle for Our Nation at the Polls

Another election year is upon us. With so many big issues in play, there is a lot at stake. And much of the battle will be fought in the primaries. For the most part, the die will be cast at that time. But many Christians too often choose to sit on the sidelines. Some... -Read More


Is Cruz Like Goldwater or Reagan?

Ted Cruz is beginning to surge significantly in the polls in Iowa. Surely the evangelicals in Iowa are the key factor. Already, some of the political pundits are writing him off, likening him to Barry Goldwater, the libertarian-leaning firebrand, who was soundly defeated by Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Goldwater lost by a landslide. But,... -Read More


Challenging California’s New Abortion Law

I remember many years ago there was a bumper sticker that asked, “What do you choose when you’re pro-choice?” In reality, most “pro-choice” advocates often push one choice to be available and exercised — the choice to terminate a baby’s life via abortion. And now if the liberal legislature and governor in California have... -Read More
