Blogging, Margaret Thatcher Style

Margaret Thatcher has passed away. I cannot say that I have read about her life in any biography, nor am I intimately familiar with her service as the former Prime Minister of England. What I know of her I observed on the news broadcasts on the television while growing up. Yet, even I know that […]

Ron Paul is Terribly Wrong

Ron Paul posted this on Facebook today regarding the death of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle: As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend’s violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event.

When Being Pro-Life Becomes Idolatry

God is the Creator of all life. It exist under Him and His law. To make abortion a legal right is to make murder permissible within society. On the other hand, to worship life is to put the life of man in place of God, and that is idolatry as well, in violation of the […]

8 Things That Were Finished on the Cross

Matthew Henry on 8 things that were finished or completed when Jesus Christ cried out, “It is finished” (John 19:30): 1. It is finished: The malice and enmity of his persecutors had now done their worst; when he had received that last indignity in the vinegar they gave him, he said, “This is the last; […]

John Stott & The New Calvinism Hypocrisy

Many the world over are mourning and regretting the loss of John R.W. Stott, Anglican author. Obviously, many have been blessed by God’s work through him over the years, and all blessings from God should be returned with thankfulness. Yet there is perhaps no greater indication to me that I am not among the ‘new […]

John Stott (1921-2011)

Update: While we certainly acknowledge and remember the contributions of John Stott to Christendom, his (tentative) annihilationist views has always been a concern of mine, and moreso that many were unaware of them. Many of you insist that “he no longer believed in annihilationism” – I hope that’s true. If anyone has evidence to that […]

Rejoice in the Murder of Jesus

If Jesus died merely to set an example, what example would that be? If His death was some kind of humanitarian lesson, what was that lesson? He was murdered. Executed. His death was a death of capital punishment. He died the death of traitors, murderers and robbers. Why wouldn’t we be angry that an innocent […]

Worse than Osama Bin Ladin

Abraham Lincoln did far more damage to the U.S. A. than Osama Bin Ladin could ever have dreamt. Osama bin Ladin was responsible for 3000 American deaths. Abraham Lincoln was responsible for over 600,000 American deaths after he raised an army to invade his own country. The astonishing thing is to watch Americans curse the […]

Ronald Reagan’s Grave

While many have and, no doubt, will continue to celebrate the 100th birthday of the late President Ronald Reagan, I cannot think of the man’s name without being reminded of the words on his tombstone.
