  • Good Without God? Not in the Long Run

    I see regularly the slogan from the American Humanists Association: “Good Without God.” And I think….well, maybe for a while, one can be good (before men). But only because they piggyback on the Judeo-Christian values they may have imbibed. After a while, it all fades away. The reality of that fading away now hits us daily in the news. There’s not a week that goes by without some new report of violence and mayhem. Some attacks are worse than others. Just recently, the UK’s Daily Mail referred to “lawless Paris,” in an attack on innocent people, including tourists. Their sensational...

    Accurate speech, considered "Islamophobic" or otherwise offensive to some, is now deemed "hateful" and punishable under distorted visions of law or university rules. So, apparently is the mention of God. Sometimes, those who dare to speak are silenced before they even begin.The First Amendment provides, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Congress is not permitted to ignore the First Amendment, but the...

    I am a Jew turned evangelical Christian. I am also a passionate supporter of Donald Trump. I have a message for Christians who don’t like Donald Trump: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.” Christians have Trump all wrong. God sends messages in many forms. You’re just not listening. God is talking, but you’re eyes and ears are closed. Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us. “A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof of home with massive flooding up to 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says “No, I’m waiting for God. I’ve prayed and I know he’s coming.”  2ndrowboat....

    Obama, Lynch and uniformed airmen who would try to banish God's glorious name, call to mind the immortal words of Servant of God Catherine Doherty: "Don't let sin twist you. The minute you say Lord have mercy, the devil disappears." Every minute of every day on Earth, someone somewhere sends up the piteous plea: “Lord have mercy!” It may be a mournful mother whose baby is lost following the pangs of hunger. It may be some poor soul watching the hordes of ISIS murdering their way through the most remote of villages. But no matter from which Hell on Earth...

    A few stunning aspects stick out from the carefully released partial and redacted transcript from the Orlando terrorist attack. The manner of release affirms the earlier outlines and concerns surrounding AG Loretta Lynch and the Obama Administration: First – this release proves law enforcement, the FBI and the Obama administration knew the motive and intent was Islamic terrorism from the very first second contact was made. When LEO stepped up to the first media press conference they knew it was an Islamic terrorist attack. ◾ Second – this release confirms allegiance with ISIS proclaimed in the specific manner that is...

    Dr. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist at the City College of New York (CUNY) and co-founder of String Field Theory, says theoretical particles known as “primitive semi-radius tachyons” are physical evidence that the universe was created by a higher intelligence. After analyzing the behavior of these sub-atomic particles - which can move faster than the speed of light and have the ability to “unstick” space and matter – using technology created in 2005, Kaku concluded that the universe is a “Matrix” governed by laws and principles that could only have been designed by an intelligent being. “I have concluded that...

    I am a Christian, albeit admittedly not a great Christian. I don’t always do what the Good Book says I should. However, despite my occasional lapses, I try not to be a hypocrite. And I fear that some Republicans and conservatives are drifting toward the sort of gross hypocrisy that is usually associated with the liberal left. That is, they are rejecting the chosen (so far) Republican presidential nominee based on presumed moral superiority (theirs) and alleged lack of historic character (his).

    The University of Miami has now announced a chair for the study of atheism. In another recent story, an atheist group is suing a sheriff because of his pro-God statements on his Facebook page (Constitution.com, 5/19/16). No one can deny the rise of the shrill atheistic voices of our time. But dare I say that the idea of state-sanctioned and in some cases state-mandated atheism is absolutely out of step with the traditions of America. Here are 10 reasons why: 1) At the time of our founding, 99.8% of the population was professing Christians. Ben Franklin, himself a bit of...

    When it comes to the fundamental laws of nature, we can break everything down into four forces that are at the core of everything in the Universe: The strong nuclear force: the force responsible for holding atomic nuclei and individual protons and neutrons together. The electromagnetic force: the force that attracts and repels charged particles, binds atoms together into molecules and life, and causes electric current, among other things. The weak nuclear force: the force responsible for some types of radioactive decay and the transmutation of heavy, unstable fundamental particles into lighter ones. And gravity: the force that bind the...

But this statement is actually meaningless. To cite but one example, the God in whose name Muslims cut innocent people’s throats and rape women cannot be the same God as the God of those who believe that God hates such actions. Who, then, argues that all those who say they believe in God believe in the same God? Two groups make this argument. The first consists...

It's a generational thing, with millennials the least likely generation to say they're religious or to take the Bible literally, the team at San Diego State University, Florida Atlantic University and Case Western Reserve University found. "In recent years, fewer Americans prayed, believed in God, took the Bible literally, attended religious services, identified as religious, affiliated with a religion, or had confidence in religious institutions," the team wrote in the journal Sage Open.

It had been proposed that "Our Country, Our God, Our Trust" be used, but that was shortened to be able to stamp the motto onto coins. Kansas State University Polytechnic's March Civic Luncheon began with Kansas Weslyan University's Dr. Philip Meckley asking: o How can we look at comparative religious traditions? o How can we live with differences for the sake of our human community?

In an extended interview on Fox News, Cruz went after the Republican frontrunner. "I think that what became very clear is that Donald Trump is not the right candidate to go head-to-head with Hillary Clinton in November," Cruz said. "That on policy issue after policy issue, his position is identical to Hillary." Cruz cast Trump's policies as in line with those of "liberal Democrats."

    For almost a quarter of a century I have spent my days working with utopians. The utopian is motivated to create heaven on earth because he is convinced that there is no other option. Put simply, the utopian believes there can be no heaven in the sense that it is described in the Bible because there is no supernatural realm. This commitment to naturalism is a philosophical commitment. It isn't based on science. In fact, it flies in the face of science. To paraphrase Josh McDowell, we only have three options when it comes to the origin of the universe....

Paul Scalia, who preached about the blessings his father received during his life and the salvation that faith in Jesus Christ offers flawed people such as his dad. Every funeral is a reminder of the thin "veil" that is between this world and the next one, between this time and "eternity," and between the "opportunity for conversion" and the moment of judgment, Fr. Scalia told the attendees at the Basilica...

He merely repeats mantras that the voters want to hear similar to the types of statements that Barack Obama gave us back in 2008. You know the rhetoric: “I’m going to build a wall around America...

    Following the deadly San Bernardino terrorist attack several weeks ago, some of our political leaders took to Twitter to express their condolences. Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that “our prayers are with the victims, their families, and the first responders in San Bernardino.” Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, urged his fellow Americans to “please keep the victims of San Bernardino in your prayers.” Kentucky Senator Rand Paul expressed that his “thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families, and brave first responders.” And even Lindsey Graham acknowledged the necessity of prayer. The next day, the New York Daily News commanded...

    ... "He sues, most of all, to make headlines and to reinforce the notion that he is powerful," wrote Daily Beast reporter Olivia Nuzzi in an overview of his lawsuits last July. ... His goal in this may not be paving the way for an actual bolt from the party so much as establishing a narrative about why he lost - if he loses, which is far from a sure thing. That’s what some right-leaning pundits suspect, in any case. "Trump's image depends on him being seen as the consummate winner; if he loses to Cruz, he'll need to explain...

    The provocative statements made on social media about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death is a sign of the times. Shortly after news of the conservative judge's death, the Twitter "universe" lit up with over-the-top comments about a man who loyally served on the Supreme Court since his appointment by Ronald Reagan nearly 30 years ago. Keith Olbermann tweeted Scalia's death was an "...Improvement" rather than a loss for America, while activist Dan Savage tweeted he was "Dedicating the rest of this weekend's marital sodomy to the memory of Antonin Scalia," the Blaze reported. Comments like these really come as...

    Yesterday afternoon when I heard the sad news that Justice Scalia had died, I felt like I had been sucker punched. With the news of Scalia’s death, thoughts tumbled into my mind about how critically important this election really is and how we cannot afford to get this wrong. There is just too much at stake, so many issues seem poised to take this nation into darkness and possibly real despair if they are not thoughtfully, objectively, humbly, prayerfully addressed. If the leaders we are choosing are not doing their absolute best to serve this nation, its people, its Constitution...
