Election Interference: Hypocrisy Unlimited

August 2017 As I have said before, in a fallen world, we have a challenging mishmash of social values, political policies, and national rhetoric to sort through. Scripturally, we have two major governments—the kingdom of man and the Kingdom of God—which coexist as “the wheat and the tares” described in Matthew 13:24-30. Within the kingdom [...]

The Great Reset and The Great Debate: God’s Strategic Genius

July 2017 For some years I have talked about the coming political-economic reckoning I call, “The Great Reset.” As the culture continues to erode, we see widening cracks in our civil foundations slowly manifesting. While increasing numbers of people are sounding alarms, I see nothing of consequence reversing the situation. The reason for that is [...]

Who Will Escort You Home?

June 2017 Of David. A psalm. The LORD says to my lord: "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." -Psalm 110:1 Those who were with my grandfather, Thornton, when he passed some years ago told me a fascinating thing: At the moment of his death, he sat [...]

REFORMATION (PART FIVE): Trying to Reverse Directions

May 2017 This final commentary, for now, on the issues surrounding reformation may well be the most challenging. I believe that as chaos rolls out over the next decade, a powerful movement will form in response to that chaos and attempt to throw global society into a political-economic "reverse" unlike anything we have seen in [...]

REFORMATION (PART FOUR): Prophetically Positioning Ourselves for Relevancy and Leverage

April 2017 As noted in our last discussion on the causes and issues surrounding the phenomenon of reformation, a biblical worldview held and practiced by a significant number of citizens and applied to society produces both spiritual renewal and social reformation. Thus, the way we stimulate social conversation and simultaneously share the gospel should be [...]

REFORMATION (PART THREE): Three Historical Obstacles to Further Reformation and the Kingdom’s Release

March 2017 Special Edition Square One: Utopian Dogmatics As Satan's "Heaven on Earth" But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.” —Matthew 16:23 This Scripture is far more fascinating than we have time [...]

Jesus Christ: Women’s Liberator Without Equal

Women's Day Special Edition - March 8, 2017 Originally Published June 1991 Jesus Christ changed women's lives infinitely more than the women's lib movement, the "pill," famous feminists like Molly Yard, and all the so-called "equal rights" legislation that has been or ever will be passed. Jesus never marched for equal rights, He simply died [...]

REFORMATION (PART TWO): Worldview, Utopianism, and Christ in the Public Square

March 2017 A reformation is a robust enough social event to change the collective worldview of a nation and global culture. It not only alters structures, but transcends to change the way massive numbers of people view life itself and the social contexts created to express their very lives. Put another way, a genuine reformation [...]

REFORMATION (PART ONE): The Sovereignty of God, Disruption, and Unintended Consequences

February 2017 2017 is the 500th year since what is known in Western history as "The Great Reformation.” In 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenberg door and figuratively lit a match to the conditions God had arranged to start world changes which have affected every nation today and led to the [...]

Familiarity & Hidden Truths

January 2017 God knows that "familiarity," until we understand what that is, is a very damaging thing to most relationships. Being "familiar" with someone or something, in the negative sense, means to take it for granted. Negative familiarity makes us devalue people and things, wherein we lose what is special about them and then may [...]

Will America Ever Be Great Again?

December 2016 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. -Galatians 6:7 As 2016 comes to an end, our nation has been traumatized as we went through a debauched public dialogue of personal insults and personal misdeeds. As demoralizing as it was, it gave us [...]

THE ELECTION: The Battle for Religious Liberty, Humility, and Real Solutions Beyond Mere Rhetoric

Election Special Edition "The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' "'An enemy did this,' he replied. "The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' "'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling [...]

A Highly Likely Election Prediction & Prophecy

November 2016 I am writing this article prior to the results of the current US presidential election. As critical as this current election is, as atypical as it has been in multiple ways, it is not the "election of elections." That election is the next one; the 2020 election will definitively set the direction for [...]

Biblical Sin Speech is Love Speech, Not Hate Speech

October 2016 For whom the LORD loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. —Proverbs 3:12 The world system frequently masks itself in the camouflage of looking like justice and righteousness. The most powerful deception is great counterfeiting. Really effective deception is flooding the market with so much counterfeiting [...]

Racism & Classism

September 2016 Racism and classism have existed for thousands of years. As manifestations of generic human sin, they are universal and clearly not unique to the United States. As expressions of man’s fallenness, they will likely never be fully expunged from among us. Racism, in particular, has historically been far more grounded in negative ethnic [...]

Results-Based Reality: Short-Term and Long-Term

August 2016 In many ways, results-based reality is similar to what is commonly called “The Scientific Method” in that ideas are measured for their truth or effectiveness by the consistent results they produce when carefully applied to various situations or applications. The Scriptures, by the way, are the “father” or primary source of this methodology [...]
