    National Review ^ | 12/11/2018
    Editor’s Note: This article, which originally ran in the July 22, 1983, issue of National Review, is adapted from the address Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn gave on the occasion of his acceptance, in London on May 10, 1983, of the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. In announcing the 1983 award, the Templeton Foundation described Mr. Solzhenitsyn as “a pioneer in the renaissance of religion in atheist nations.” Mr. Solzhenitsyn ’s introductory remarks were made at the awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace, with Prince Philip presiding. The address proper was delivered later the same day at the London Guildhall. Today, December 11,...

    All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all: without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain. ...We must first recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our...
  • God Is A Father...gender pt 6

    For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named … (Ephesians 3:14-15) The most important thing about any person, is how they see God. The vision of God is the determining factor in the intellectual, moral and spiritual life of every person. All of our problems are theological at root, they have to do with how we either correctly perceive or misperceive God. It doesn’t matter what anyone’s opinion or preference is, as to how they think God is or should be. Other...

    In the human heart, the Baby in the Crèche who is the forever wondrous King of Kings, remains eternal True life is not only often stranger than fiction, it’s once in awhile, also more beautiful than anything turned out in fiction. The following is a true story about how a friend in Decatur, Illinois, without even being aware of it, brought back to me the life and times of the late great Daniel T. Zanoza, originator of the now 11-year-old Springfield Nativity Scene—once the only such display to ever stand in any state capitol building in any state across the...

    All modern humans descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, scientists say. Scientists surveyed the genetic 'bar codes' of five million animals - including humans - from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race. These bar codes, or snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells, suggest that it's not just people who came from a single pair of beings, but nine out of every 10 animal species, too

    I received this comment from reader Kate R. I found it so beautiful that I think it deserves a blog post all of itself. Kate R. is writing about Donald John Trump: "He is a force of nature, and we thank God for him daily. His daily itinerary is on our news feed, and how he does all that he does, well it can only be God Who sustains him. It is a constant schedule of demanding activities. I wouldn’t last one week and I’m significantly younger than he. We knew God gave him to us. He was an answer...

    Shun Godless Democrats Few mainstream or social media ever mention it but it is as true as day follows night, President Donald Trump is not only Making America Great Again, he is returning God to the Public Square. Travelling to a dozen or more Midterm Election rallies where tens of thousands await his welcome message, he reminds all who line up for hours to hear him, that they are the progeny of the pioneers who built this country, the same ones who “loved their families, their country and “loved their God”.

    Ladies and gentlemen of America, Nov. 6 is only days away and your country is calling you! Picture President Donald Trump making his way waist-high through a vile and treacherous swamp, Home Office of the Deep State. Is that a tree stump up ahead, or a camouflaged crocodile lying in wait? You won’t know until what you may have mistaken for a harmless tree stump clamps its teeth into you, getting a grip good enough for the drowning finale. There are many creatures of different stripes who loiter in the swamp, where so many booby traps lie in wait.

    Democratic congressional candidate Scott Wallace lost his cool during a debate with his Republican opponent held at a Pennsylvania synagogue on Sunday night, unleashing the “f-bomb” while standing on the bimah, local radio station WBCB reported. Wallace’s outburst “silenced” the audience at Congregation Tifereth Israel in Bensalem and led to him being chided by the debate moderator, the station stated. It took place when he was questioning his opponent, incumbent Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, about his position on insurance for those with pre-existing conditions. “Ironically, there was a later question about the need for civility in politics,” Fitzpatrick told WBCB....
