Think of him, President Biden, what you may, this is not another “popularity poll” like those taken while President Trump was in office. This one clearly shows the nation giving a vote of no confidence. I wonder how it plays out on the international scene? I am sure China and other rivals are drooling.
Most Americans have doubts about whether President Joe Biden is really running the country, according to a new poll. Breitbart reports the Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action survey asked likely voters if they believe Biden “is fully executing the duties of his office.” According to the poll, 57 percent said they believe “others are directing policy and agenda” in the White […]
One of the most important observations that I gleaned from one of Os Guinness’s books is that celebrating the acquisition of liberty and freedom (what we celebrate this weekend is our acquisition of freedom) is typical in the world’s history. But what is really unusual is sustaining freedom…
Our government’s most sacred duty is to safeguard the right to life for all Americans, including the most vulnerable. That’s why pro-life leaders in Congress are demanding a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to ensure that every newborn receives equal care, no matter the circumstances of their birth…
I do not know very many advocates of 2nd Amendment Rights who are opposed to basic gun control (licensing laws). But as I have said many times you can not fix STUPID with a 2×4 and blaming an intimate object for the violence of man is just plain STUPID.
Sen. Marco Rubio (D-Fla.) is calling out the Democratic Party’s “crazy” gun control agenda as ushering in the “inevitable consequence” of the unprecedented violent crime wave in American cities, as the Left continues to blame gun ownership and Republicans – instead of criminals…
By Dave Andrusko A colleague at National Right to Life passed along an intriguing analysis from “Governing” magazine that ran under the headline, “2021 has been a record year for abortion restrictions and bans.” “Governing” is described as “a monthly magazine whose primary audience is state and local government officials: governors, legislators, mayors, city managers, …
China’s next great leap forward could be forced procreation, and it’s animated by the same ideas that energize so much of the West. In 1957, Chinese dictator Mao Zedong told a Yugoslav official that his nation did not fear a nuclear attack: “What if they killed 300 million of us?” he said. “We would still have many people left.”…
As I have been riding across the US I see signs of COVID restrictions lifting in some areas and not so much in others. Mainly I am speaking of wearing a mask, some fuel stops and store have signs that say “Mask Required” other have none. The other thing I found interesting was the level of folks so willing to ignore these business owner’s practices yet demand to be served.
On at least two occasions when clerks asked someone to “please mask up” because it was local policy” they were met with a flurry of curse words. One such individual had a little fish symbol on the back of their truck as they sped away.
Christian behavior, I think not, I personally HATE these mask mandates, I think they are stupid and science does not support them. That being said, nothing that these local stores are doing goes against the Word of God, and as our text above notes, my job is quite simple. Follow the rules or go somewhere else.
Submission to authority is a hard pill for many “Christians” to swallow these days, but it one that the Bible is quite clear we must until it violates the law of God.
So how do we express our displeasure with the current mask mandates and other seemingly totalitarian government rules? John MacArthur’s Devotional for today has an answer:
The world doesn’t need another opinion—it needs God’s absolute and authoritative Word!
Seek to maintain a proper balance between truth and love
Some people picture John as overly sentimental and egotistical, lying with his head on Jesus’ shoulder and constantly referring to himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved. But that’s not an accurate characterization of one of the “Son of thunder”! He loved Jesus deeply and was amazed that Jesus loved him—especially after he wanted to burn up the Samaritans and then secure a prominent place for himself in Christ’s kingdom. Calling himself “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (e.g., John 21:20) was simply his way of marvelling over God’s grace in his life.
As much as he loved Jesus, John never allowed his love to deteriorate into mere sentimentalism. In fact, the proper balance between truth and love is the hallmark of his ministry. In his writings we find the word love more than eighty times and witness nearly seventy times. His profound love for Christ compelled him to be a teacher of love and a witness to the truth. To him, obedience to the truth was the highest expression of love. As 1 John 2:5 says, “Whoever keeps [God’s] word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected.”
John’s greatest joy was to know that his spiritual children were walking in the truth (3 John 4). He firmly denounced anyone who attempted to divert them from that goal by denying or distorting God’s Word.
Today, media talk shows and other influences have blurred the lines between opinion and truth. One man’s opinion is purported to be as good as the next, and there’s little talk about what’s right or wrong.
Truth suffers even within the church because many Christians are willing to compromise it to avoid upsetting people. They forget that true love flourishes only in the atmosphere of biblical truth (Phil. 1:9).
Amid such confusion, God calls you to speak the truth in love (Eph. 4:15). The world doesn’t need another opinion—it needs God’s absolute and authoritative Word!
Suggestions for Prayer
Thank God for the gift of His love and the power of His truth. Ask Him to make you a person of ever-increasing biblical integrity.
When John McCain was running for President in 2008, Saturday Night Live ran a recurring skit about his running-mate, then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Tina Fey, playing Gov. Palin in her trademark red suit, delivered the memorable line, “I can see Russia from my house!”
It was pretty funny. It also wasn’t real. Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house. Today, however, a surprising number of people believe she did. This is a testimony to the power of lies…
On April 19th, the Biden administration filed an appeal in a case that could force “religious doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful gender-transition procedures against their conscience and professional medical judgment.”
