  • Total Dependence on God

    As I was recently reading some contractual language, the following words caught my eye: “We have a royalty-free, irrevocable, in perpetuity license...” Doesn't this describe our “contract” with God?

  • America's Christian heritage

    We receive a small local newspaper, and we were intrigued by a recent article dealing with the Christian heritage of our nation. It was about a seasoned member of mainstream acadamia who had just discovered that George Washington was a Christian. It was such a discovery that she even wrote a book about...

  • Principled Voting

    Yesterday, November 4th, was my first chance to vote, having turned 18 in September. I did not vote for Obama/Biden. I did not vote for McCain/Palin. As a Christian, I took my decision to vote for a presidential candidate very seriously. I purposed to have my decision be based on faith in God rather...
