    Open carry at The Vertical Church in Yuma is common. It is not so common to see a rifleman outside of the front entrance. The Church takes security seriously. There is a dedicated security team that has several members at each service. Some members carry openly, some carry discreetly. There is nearly always double coverage as most security team members serve at one service and attend worship at another. Team members switch between open carry and discreet carry as is convenient. Members of the security team have a high percentage of active, former, and retired military and police. The...

    ......I was the greatest of religious hyprocrites and zeolots, using God's name in vain. I'm not a better than you religious hypocrite and zealot anymore, but by God I do believe in the Higher Power.... Roy Moore may not see God the same way you or I do, but he is dead on target about politics as usual and about the role of God in society. I for one believe it is good to acknowledge God as I understand God. And with the results now coming in and the media declaring Doug Jones the winner....its a good time to reflect...

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    Bangladeshi jihadist Akayed Ullah used family ties to get here A would-be Muslim suicide bomber’s attempt to kill morning rush hour commuters in Manhattan yesterday is throwing much-needed light on our disastrous “chain migration” immigration system that admits foreigners based merely on family connections. Around 7:20 Monday morning what police called “an improvised, low-tech” pipe-bomb style device detonated prematurely while strapped to the body of jihadist immigrant and Brooklyn resident Akayed Ullah, 27, in a subway passageway between Times Square and the Port Authority, a massive bus terminal, in Manhattan. Another unexploded device was found on his person. As a...

    Security Council became a kangaroo court, turning a perverted version of “international law” against the Trump administration for its just defense of the Jewish state of Israel and Israel's right to choose its own capital On December 6th, President Trump announced his decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to instruct the State Department to begin the process of relocating the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Two days later, at a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the other 14 members of the Council, including U.S. allies such as France, the United...

Trump's principled decision follows United States policy adopted since 1995 Media falsely discredit Trump as he confronts UN on Jerusalem The media has discredited President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital -falsely claiming the President has reversed nearly seven decades of American foreign policy. Trump’s decision has pitted America squarely against the United Nations.

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    It’s the time of year where people put up their trees, sing carols and get ready for what used to be the most enjoyable holiday on the calendar; yet for some reason, it has become a period when people cry out against the “imposition” of Christian holidays on others. Why would they do this? And more importantly, are their arguments valid? In a recent article for a college newspaper, The Crimson White, a piece was published by Emily Barron which took aim at President Trump for forcing this Christian celebration “down everyone’s throats.” Her reasoning being that as a “nation...

    “A Baptism of Repentance for the Forgiveness of Sins” (Mark 1:1-8) Well, here comes John the Baptist again. He always shows up around this time of year. Always with kind of a depressing message: “Repent! Get your life straightened out!” John the Baptist is like the Denny Downer of December. Everybody else is having a good time getting ready for Christmas--going shopping, listening to Christmas music, watching specials on TV, having Christmas parties--and here comes John, telling us to repent. John, is that any way to get ready for Christmas? I mean, listen to this part of our text today...

    After three previous presidents neglected to abide by legislation ordering the United States to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, President Trump obeyed the law by announcing that we will be moving our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The move was denounced by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah who contends that "this humiliation of 1.5 billion Muslims is immoral and illegal. Allah has given all the world to the Muslims. Trump's attempt to claim Jerusalem for Satan and his Jewish demons contradicts the eternal laws written in the Quran. Death and sorrow will be the payment extracted from the...

    “A Day of Judgment and Salvation” (1 Corinthians 1:3-9) In thinking about a theme for our three midweek Advent services this year, I decided to go with the Epistle readings for the first three Sundays in Advent. For there is a common theme that you can see in all three. There is a phrase, a connecting thread, that runs through these readings. See if you can notice what it is. First, from the Epistle for the First Sunday in Advent, 1 Corinthians 1, the part where it says: “as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who...

    Conquer yourself first — then the unkindness of others won’t conquer you Many lessons my boyhood best friend and mentor Jaybird taught me seemed foolish at the time, but along with me they matured, and now serve as guideposts in my life. One of those lessons was about kindness. Jaybird believed that no act of kindness, however small, is wasted. Even so, the old black man sometimes displayed a less-than-kindly nature when the actions of others angered him, but if I was close by he did his best to respond in a civil manner.

    Mayors from 51 cities from across the U.S. and around the world are meeting in Chicago to hear from former President Obama and sign a document they are calling the “Chicago Climate Charter.” President Trump announced his intention to pull the U.S. out of the UN’s Paris Climate Accord, however, the terms of the Accord delay his taking formal action until November, 2019. The mayors gathered in Chicago, meanwhile, are vowing to bypass the federal government and create climate policies of their own. USA Today reports that the Chicago Charter calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at least 26% to...
  • The Crux of the Gay Wedding Cake Issue

    Once again the story about the baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple is in the ages of our newspapers. We are being asked to look at it as though the baker, Masterpiece Cakeshop, was asking for “the right to discriminate” (LA Times) and that their refusal is akin to a sign saying “No blacks.” But their argument is not only flawed, it is disingenuous and moral cowardice. You see this is not about refusal of service, in fact, Masterpiece did offer the couple, David Mullins and Charlie Craig service, just not the service they asked...

    Billionaire financier and funder of Antifa leftist goons, George Soros complains that current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban “is undoing all the progress made during the 40 years the country was ruled by Communists. After World War II, Stalin’s troops ensured that the people of Hungary would enjoy the full benefits of a progressive political and social system. Orban is throwing all that away.” Particularly irritating to Soros is what he calls “Orban’s perverted use of border fences and guards. He has turned the previous progressive policy on its head by using these traditional barriers to keep migrants out instead...

    “Oh That You Would Rend the Heavens and Come Down” (Isaiah 64:1-9) The Old Testament Reading for today, from Isaiah 64, is an intense prayer. The prophet is begging God to intervene on behalf of his people. As such, it is a fitting prayer also for God’s New Testament people, the church. And so, on this First Sunday in Advent, as we enter this season of waiting for the Lord’s coming, we cry out with Isaiah, “Oh That You Would Rend the Heavens and Come Down.” What is the situation for which Isaiah writes? With prophetic foresight, Isaiah looks ahead...

    How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as...
