Recommended Reading: The Real Lincoln

There are not one, but two books with the same title, I would highly recommend you to not only read, but read slowly, chewing and ingesting each chapter, cover to cover. These two books on Lincoln forever changed the way I viewed academia and it’s version of history, not to mention how I viewed one […]

Close the Schools

“A few years ago, my good friend Brian opened his heart to me and a few other friends about a tragedy in his family. Brian’s teenage son had been brutally murdered some time before and Brian was reflecting on his loving memory of his son and the heartbreak of losing him. Interestingly, Brian blamed himself […]

Re-Thinking ‘Children’s Church’

In my own Baptist denomination, there is what is commonly referred to as ‘Children’s Church’. This is not a practice only in Baptist circles, of course, but one which crosses denominations, isn’t it? Is ‘Children’s Church’ biblical? Does it fall under that enormously broad category of ‘neither approved nor condemned in Scripture’? Here is my […]

“Women, Know Your Limits”

It should be clear by now, after all these generations since the dawn of time, that, intelligent, well-educated women are a disruption to the peaceful existence and nurturing of society as well as a divisive…..something……to the family. *cough*….

The Dumbing Down of Worship in America & Our Biblical Witness

A big part of the problem is that we have gotten the unconverted in the church while still unconverted, and as such, they have no love for God, His Christ, His people nor for true worship. Over the last 50 years or so, there has been a dumbing down of Biblical worship and the witness […]

The Government of Man Is Doomed

And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. – I John 2:17 The government of man stands condemned. Every day this is manifest. All in accord with the Word of God, particularly the passage quoted above. It is doomed because it refuses the will […]

When Politicians Substitute gods for God

They follow a pattern as old as man and most assuredly a pattern as spelled out in I Kings 12:21, 31-33. Men in Adam will always find an excuse to abandon the Word of God as the only safe guide for society. This is particularly so in the passage we refer to today. The kingdom […]

Some Parental Rants Are Biblically Instructive

The History of Rapture Theology in American Christianity

This video gives us an historical overview of the rise of rapture theology in popular Christianity and its harmful effects. Worth watching, because neither premillennialism, dispensationalism or postmillennialism makes any biblical sense. None at all. Millennialism is, in fact, one of the greatest heresies of our day. HT

Behind the Dixie Stars

Did you know that when ‘the war’ started, the largest plantation in Charleston, SC, was owned by a free black man – who owned 200 slaves? Here’s a 7 minute Documentary featuring Nelson W. Winbush, a black son of confederate black soldier Luis Napoleon Nelson who fought under Nathan Bedford Forest. A series of interviews, […]

My Favorite Animal

“Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.” She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my […]

Reasons & Benefits of Studying the Greek Language

The Greek language of the New Testament is called Koine, or common Greek, for the simple reason that it was the common language in the Greek-speaking world from the time of Alexander the Great to roughly 500 A.D. It is without question the most expressive language known to mankind. It is also one of the […]

Why Old Books Smell

I can’t speak for you, of course, but personally, I love that musty smell of a classic old book – and I’ve never really cared how or where the smell came from. I certainly didn’t know that somewhere in the world, scientists were actually researching it….but I’m not surprised.

9 Assumptions of Modern Schooling

by John Taylor Gatto As Stephen Arons, the legal scholar from the University of Massachusetts, told an audience at the Hawthorne Valley School a while back: Centralized control of government schools creates the appearance of a Unity which is refuted by the growing mass of families who have removed their children from public or private […]
