Time for Churches to Get “Political”

The jig is up. The news is out. Pastors across America have called the left’s bluff. The empty words “separation of church and state” – a phrase found nowhere in the U.S. Constitution – have lost their sting. Yes, “separation” still applies, but only insofar as it requires the state to remain separate from the […]

Truth According to Godliness

Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness – Titus 1:1 How little is now heard, even in the centres of orthodoxy, of ‘walking worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing’! Will not […]
