    When Texas middle schooler Jordan Wooley recently highlighted a reading assignment that required students to deny God, school administrators, her teacher, and some students painted her as a liar. But a flood of support from residents across the state, including and Gov. Greg Abbott, is buoying her spirits as she heads to the Governor’s Mansion Saturday to share her story. Wooley, 12, testified before the Katy Independent School Board last Monday about a reading assignment at West Memorial Junior High in which her teacher instructed students to label statements as fact, opinion or commonplace assertion, which her teacher characterized as...

    A Texas girl spoke out after her teacher alleged made her say "God is a myth," has experienced fallout for standing up for herself and her beliefs. Twelve-year-old Jordan Wooley says she has been bullied and told to kill herself following media coverage of her story. It started when Wooley's teacher assigned a quiz at Katy, Texas's West Memorial Junior High School asking students to label statements as "fact, assertion, or opinion." Statements included "America is the most free country on Earth," and "there is a God." Jordan labeled the latter as "fact,' and her teacher told her to mark...

From Brietbart.com: Carrying a weapon is not always feasible or appropriate. However, given the increased tensions that are the result of continued, escalating terrorism around the world, more legitimately armed individuals on the streets is a positive outcome. Each permit holder must make the decision to carry or not carry. I will carry more often than I have in the past, and I am sure other concealed permit holders will do the same.

    Speaking at the Family Leader's Presidential Family Forum in Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz had some harsh words for President Obama. The Republican presidential candidate believes that the president is tearing at the fabric of society by undermining the freedom of religion. And he's not willing to let that happen. "It is the first right protected in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is the foundation of everything else in America. If you can’t worship God, all other liberties are taken away." Although many people seem to believe that the freedom of speech...

    Unbeknownst to many in our culture, including even some Christians, the God of the Old Testament is the God of the New Testament. God, the Bible assures us, is unchanging. Our secular culture mischaracterizes Jesus as a hyper-tolerant, nondiscriminatory liberal who is indifferent to sin and passes judgment on no one. But Jesus is not a milquetoast pacifist. In his Sermon on the Mount, which many cite as evidence of his unique moral teachings, he set out nearly impossible standards of human conduct. He didn't say, "I don't care how you live." Rather, he said, "You therefore must be perfect,...

    In an upside-down world where an increasing number of world leaders are selling their populations out, the geese serve as one of nature’s best reminders that some things other than man-made were Creator-made to endure. Many times throughout the day, the geese are honking their way across the skies outside our windows. It’s as if they want all humans to know that they are on their way south. Their distinctive honking is pure enthusiasm. It takes only a little imagination to think their honking is like calling out to other geese in their signature V-formations, “Only 100 miles to go!”...

    The Bible is the ultimate lesson giver. This is certainly true in the story about Jephthah’s tragic mistake, which confirms Robert Service’s truth: A promise made is a debt unpaid. In Robert Service’s poem, “The Cremation Of Sam McGee,” one line reads, “A promise made is a debt unpaid,” which reminds me of a story told to me by my boyhood best friend and mentor, Jaybird, by far the best storyteller I have ever known. The old black man had a powerful memory, and never forgot any of the Biblical tales read to him by his children or me, and...

They brainwash our children in their Nature worship and force upon them their "faith" that this cosmos created itself. As "true believers" evolutionists insist that organic life sprang up fully functional from inorganic chemicals. And how did that happen? The evolution faithful say it happened by a "Big Bang" and other random meaningless non-intelligently designed completely accidental acts of cosmic kindness.

    Mankinds enduring culture war is nothing new. It first began in a garden long ago and today has reached a fever pitch worldwide. The battle lines are drawn, not so much between conservative vs. liberal, as many presume, but, rather, between biblical vs. unbiblical, truth vs. deception. In its most distilled form the culture war signifies the worldly manifestation of an otherworldy spiritual battle between good and evil. African Cardinal Robert Sarah, a man many view as a potential future pope, recently made news by boldly drilling down into this reality. During the Vaticans ongoing Synod of Bishops, Sarah noted...

    Never has there been a time in history requiring that an individual be equipped with critical thinking skills more than now. The biggest problem that America is facing today is the inability of the vast majority of the citizenry to think critically. Matt Drudge went so far as to say that Americans are sick. Lack of the ability to think critically is a mental symptom that affects all people regardless of their level of education, economic status, age, race, ethnicity, sex, or political party (although it appears that liberals are more likely to lack such skills).

However, that's not easy. Darkness is easier to adapt to than light. Here in Alaska, summer's glaring midnight sun is pretty offensive at bedtime. But the extra light is good, providing lots of time for healthy activities, leaving a healthier, better you at summer's end. In sharp contrast, winters up here offer minimal light. The lack of light makes it feel almost natural to do what's in reality,...

A friend of mine responded to the headline as follows: Hitler said the same thing in 1933.

Several Walton County parents say their children are being forced to learn about Islam, and want the option to exclude their children from these lessons. The teaching of Islam has banded together a group of upset parents. “My daughter had to learn the Shiad, and the five pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert, but they never once learned anything...

Was it when slavery was legal? How about when women were denied the vote? The Gilded Age? The Roaring '20s? America is a nation in which Christians -- and every other religious and nonreligious person -- have the right to practice their beliefs in private and public free of government intrusion, except in some cases of life-threatening medical conditions in which the courts have occasionally intruded.

It's precisely the narrative gay rights advocates had hoped to avoid. But as Davis' mug shot rocketed around the Internet, it became clear that the gay rights movement must battle this idea that Christianity is under siege, said Kenneth Upton, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, a law...

All I have to do is obey Him because He was, is, and always will be: The Gift Giver A great religious thinker whose name I cannot recall once said, The Lord is often present in our lives in things that we do not dream possess any significance. We ask God about something which needs His mighty working, and the very instrument by which He is to work is by our side, perhaps for weeks and months and years all unrecognized, until suddenly someday...

    As the primary season for the 2016 presidential election heats up, we hear all sorts of rhetoric surrounding the meaning of good leadership. Men and women from all over the country try to convince us that they are full of integrity, compassion, decisiveness and all sorts of other abstract qualities that seem impossible to measure or quantify. But what is Gods plan for leadership, not just for our elected officials, but for everyday people? Every Christian exercises leadership in some capacity. Whether we are at home, at church, at school, at work, in our peer groups or in our communities,...

    About anything. At all. If you don't know this one, first thing, you're "majoring in the minors", getting a Ph.D. in ABC.God doesn't want to take you down, He wants to love you into abundant life.He isn't like other "authorities" who can only build themselves up by tearing you down.He isn't merely supremely good, He is goodness itself.All goodness, truth, beauty, love, happiness, merely "consist" in participation in Him, in the fact that He IS those things in Himself, to an unlimited, infinite degree.Don't want to waste your time? Understand that first, that there's a God-shaped hole in your heart...

    How can we determine what is morally right? The answer to this question -- the most important question human beings need to answer -- is a major difference between Left and Right. For conservatives, the answer is, and has always been, that there are moral truths -- objective moral standards -- to which every person is accountable. In America, this has meant accountability to the Creator, the God of the Bible, and to Judeo-Christian values. For the Left, the answer has always been -- meaning since Karl Marx, the father of Leftism -- that there is no transcendent source of...

    At the Red State Conservatives conference held in Atlanta right after the GOP Presidential debates former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee, reminded his listeners that theSupreme Court is not the Supreme Being. In a biting dissent in the Obergefell v. Hodges case on marriage, Chief Justice Roberts put the constitutional overreach this way, who do we think we are? Both Huckabee and Roberts were aghast at the Supreme Courts attempt to effectively declare the Natural Law unconstitutional. The Court tried to etch its decision to redefine the meaning of marriage in stone by saying marriage was afundamental rightrather than just...

    In a recent ABC News article, journalist David Knight writes that two German scientists have proven logician and mathematician, Kurt Gdels, theorem for Gods existence is logically accurate [1]. Knight writes, The details of the mathematics involved in Gdel's ontological proof are complicated, but in essence the Austrian was arguing that, by definition, God is that for which no greater can be conceived. And while God exists in the understanding of the concept, we could conceive of him as greater if he existed in reality. Therefore, he must exist. Even at the time, the argument was not exactly a new...

    (CNSNews.com) - Near the end of the debate Thursday night, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked conservative Republican Sen. Ted Cruz if he'd had “any word from God.” Of the hundreds of questions that could have been asked, Kelly chose “an interesting closing question” for the candidates, suggested by a Facebook user, who said, ‘I want to know if any of them have received a word from God on what they should do and take care of first.’ “Senator Cruz, start from you. Any word from God?” Kelly asked. “Well, I am blessed to receive a word from God every...

We must man up face up lean on God but certainly dont be one of those extremists who accesses the power, miracles and love of God who actually believes and...

    If we walk in the light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another and the Blood of Jesus Christ Gods son, cleanses us from all sin.? (I john 1:7)What does it mean to walk in the Light? We know it doesnt mean that we walk in sinless perfection, otherwise we would not be assured that the one who walks in the light is continuously cleansed from all sin by the blood of Jesus Christ. What then does the passage mean,If we walk in the light.Earlier in the same section of scripture, John tells us that...
