How God Views Homosexuals

Way too often, Christians view homosexuality far, far differently than God does. In Scripture, the male prostitute, sodomite, and homosexual is described vividly and it tells us unequivocally how God views homosexuality and homosexuals themselves. First, Deuteronomy 23:18 – You shall not bring the hire of a harlot or the wages of a dog into […]

Some Parental Rants Are Biblically Instructive

Two Tragedies of the Aurora, Colorado Shootings

Preachers who refuse to ever discuss current events are pretty much useless. Even more so are they who will only talk of heaven while ignoring the management of what God has given us here on earth. I believe that. I’m sure most, if not all of you by now, have heard about the shootings which […]

The Nationalist Myth & The Fourth of July

This is a repost that concerns every American. It is the exposing of a myth long lived and which sorely needs to be put to rest; specifically, that on July 4th, American was born as a nation. Folks, that just isn’t true. Unfortunately, the first line of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, which states: “Four score […]


Revivals are among the charter rights of the Church…a revival means a heartbroken pastor. A revival means a church on its knees confessing its sins – the sins of the individual and of the Church – confessing the sins of the times and of the community. – E.M. Bounds

Stonewall Jackson: Christian, Civil-Rights Leader & Champion of Black Literacy

For those who have drank the kool-aid flowing from the streams of the Lincoln cult and who disdain giving up the myths 1) that slavery and education have always been incompatible (see here for todays example); 2) that Confederate soldiers were ‘all’ fighting to keep their slaves and other such ignorant rubbish, you may not […]

The Nationalist Myth & The Fourth of July

This weekend, millions of Americans will gather in stadiums across the country to celebrate a myth – one that has been carefully constructed over many years to elicit the highest levels of emotion and devotion, while just as carefully concealing the historical facts which undermine it. The myth: we commemorate the birth of our nation […]

AFA Radio Host Calls For Legal Sanctions On Homosexuals

Bryan Fischer, a radio host for American Family Association, says it is biblical to impose the same legal sanctions on homosexuals that are imposed on intravenous drug abusers.

Greg Mills: Grace In The Law Of God – The Seventh Commandment

“You shall not commit adultery.” – Exodus 20:14 (ESV) Introduction I.    Because the family is the foundation of a God-ordered society, the family is the point of the devil’s most vigorous assault. II.   The institution of marriage is fundamental to more than just the family.  It is the basis for human society and the vehicle […]

News: Boys Wearing Skirts To High School?

In the ‘Fashion & Style’ section of the New York Times lies an article entitled “Can A Boy Wear A Skirt To School”?  You know, that was never an issue when I was in high school. Back then, I doubt the guy would have made it to the school property, much less the front door […]

Hate Crime Passes Congress (Pastors Beware)

5ptsalt.com reported months ago regarding one of the ‘hate crimes’ bill, also known as the ‘Pedophile Protection Act’, that was making the rounds at an amazingly corrupt congress.

Jay Bakker Dreaming

An insightful post by Ken Silva over at Apprising.org. I’d like to add that I had an insightful conversation with Jay Bakker today via Twitter, and I must tell you the man is found lacking in truth.
