Immorality, theft, vandalism, Second Amendment violations, and so-called civil rights were not the basis of this Baptist minister’s philosophies. His mission was to proclaim the Gospel and his basis was God-given rights, and liberty under Law, which in his case was eloquent enough to land him behind bars.
With regard to Soleimani, my conclusion is that Trump did nothing outside of what Congress has authorized in 1973 and has stood by for decades until this present day. However, just because it was passed by Congress does not make it Constitutional.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Along with many Americans, I am disposed to applaud Mr. Trump’s boldness and decisiveness, along with his desire to protect the American people.
This week as we pray for the families and friends of the deceased at West Freeway Church of Christ, please take an additional moment to give thanks for the law-abiding heroes that saved so many lives. May it challenge us all to follow their example of love.
The birth of the Savior is the most significant political event in human history. This bears repeating. The birth of Jesus Christ is the most significant political event in the history of the universe. Why? Well, simply put, it is because liberty does not and cannot exist absent the acknowledgement of the Almighty
I have never been asked to stop my presentations. I have never been kicked out of a school. The response has always been exceptionally positive. The challenge is when people are afraid they may get in trouble for referencing the Christian foundations in America.
Many ministers of the original Congress went on to serve in Congress like Rev. Abiel Foster, Rev. Benjamin Contee, Rev. Abraham Baldwin, Rev. Paine Wingate, Rev. John Peter Muhlenberg, and his brother Rev. Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg who later became the first Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The Framers of the Second Amendment, referring to the people’s God-given and pre-existing right to bear arms, used the most sweeping and all-encompassing language in the Constitution to describe this right as something that, “shall not be infringed.”
This Thanksgiving let us give thanks to the God of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for America’s incredible founding and pray that our government would never relinquish its God-given duty to preserve our rights.
As our culture cultivates more hostility to the Bible and the virtue that Christ promotes in the Gospel, I thought I would take a minute to speak about the frenzy surrounding rapper Kanye West's first faith-based album, Jesus is King.
God Bless every American soldier, veteran, and citizen who exercises this Patriotism. As President Trump reflected, “Each warrior who fights for our Nation, along with their families, has earned our eternal gratitude, and I ask that all Americans thank and support them.”
As we define the source of American Law, we can understand why the Ten Commandments were placed in our courthouses and schools. They serve as a memorial and reminder of the foundation of our laws. Failing to uphold the foundational Laws of the Creator is to say that liberty no longer matters.
Last week President Donald Trump made the unequivocal statement that the United States was pulling its troops out of Syria. “Bring soldiers home,” he said. “Let someone else fight over this long-bloodstained sand.”
Our Founding Fathers made it very difficult for Americans to be sent to war. They had witnessed centuries of tyranny strengthening itself in countries where kings and parliaments used their own people as pawns and slaves in self-serving wars for more power and self-aggrandizements.
It was like a Saturday Night Live skit. Chicken Little is telling us we need to “eat the babies,” taking this ridiculous climate change jargon to the next level. It had every earmark of being a spoof, but no one openly condemned her statements, leaving us unsure about whether proponents of climate change think this insane philosophy is agreeable.
Tragically, the deluded Supreme Court of 1963 believed the Bible and prayer should be banned from schools indefinitely. What fruit has this netted? Academically, America is near the bottom of science and math scores in developed countries.
I must explain that the government of America is not a democracy, but a Republic; “an empire of Laws, and not of men,” as Founding Father John Adams put it. Despite the fact that the authority of law does not come from the majority of unelected people, I do believe that all Americans should rightly understand that no public servant is above the law.
It’s now been over a week since The New York Times correctly retracted its slanderous libel against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It turns out the “new allegation” isn’t supported by the victim, a fact many believed was purposely left omitted from their the story.
As I watch the unfolding of un-American Political parties where we are actually considering Atheist, anti-Christian, sexually perverted, Muslim, and even Socialist candidates in America, I can’t help but think that this is the result of man’s sinful desire to make up his own rights.
I realize there is a tremendous amount of pressure on you 30% of students who will speak your values, but do not lose heart. Our Founders did it, and by God’s grace so will you.
Our founders, in the Declaration of Independence, referred to God as the Supreme Judge of the universe because His jurisdiction supersedes every act of civil government.
Planned Parenthood announced Monday that it is pulling out of the Title X federal family planning program (for low-income Americans) rather than abide by a new Trump administration rule prohibiting participants from referring patients for abortions.
Are you distressed that many in America are rapidly digressing from the principled, honorable standard of morality we once held? This standard produced an example of biblical morality that constructed one of the greatest civil documents of liberty the world has ever seen: the Declaration of Independence.
I believe today we need “control” of our leaders and we need to make sure that they advocate, endorse, and sponsor the protection of all Americans’ God-given right to life, liberty, and property.
What we are witnessing in the current political arena, mainstream media, and public education has become nonsensical. It is the intentional validation of absurdity, and it is not reality.
In response to my column, I received a long, exhaustive email in support of The Squad while excoriating my supposed hateful, narrow-mindedness. This week I want to take you into the mind of a leftist as I share his Un-American view.
They desire to abolish the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). They advocate policies that will eliminate private health insurance and force Americans to pay for healthcare of undocumented immigrants.
Let me be clear that the reason I would side with the federal government, or why I would not do so, is determined by whether or not their actions line up with the Constitution.
My prayer is that before the tremendous opportunity to win next year’s title, our unified belief in this eternal Truth will be made apparent to the world. This would be right. This would be American.
The King of England has persisted in continual wrongdoing against the rights of the people of the American colonies and the dissolution of the previous relationship between Great Britain and the American colonies is the reasonable and sensible remedy for that continual wrongdoing.
Please join me and pray for those who are victims of this tragic delusion and by love let’s seek to preserve the reality that men and women are loved, cared for, and equal in the sight of God and our Constitution.
We must not allow Father’s Day, the month of June, or the families in America to become co-opted by this evil, dark and bitter anti-life agenda. Fathers, we have a duty to make sure this happens.
In reaction to the middle schooler’s oration regarding the protection of the pre-born, shouting progressively became louder until her voice was drowned out altogether. Despite looking understandably frightened, Addison Woosley wrapped up her speech confidently and walked alone back to her seat where the thirteen-year-old girl was berated and jeered at by adults in the crowd.
Part of my work here at the Institute on the Constitution involves making presentations across the country about matters of law and government and the Constitution. Sometimes, I’ll ask the members of the audience to raise their hand if they have ever read a Supreme Court opinion.
We are reminded every year during Memorial Day to honor these men and women, and I do. It is a holy act for any individual to lay down his life in sacrifice for his neighbor. It is what Christ Himself did for you and me. Our children should be taught to honor and have respect for those individuals who practice this sacrifice as a way of life.
This feeble display of intellect shows your shallowness, Mr. Cohen. You are an inch deep regarding the constitutional and theological underpinnings of America. Our founding documents declare that our Creator endowed every individual with their rights and it is the government’s duty given by the Creator and His creation to secure those rights.
If our country continues on a path of denying the fixed, moral laws of the universe, this is a clear indication that we are no longer acting in accordance with reality. It is not real to think that a person, or a people, can do these things without disastrous consequences.
The Electoral College was to be a wholly separate body for choosing the president. Developed at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, it was a compromise among plans for a national popular vote and to have Congress choose the president. It also acts as a State check on Federal power, thus protecting smaller States.
But this presumes that the judicial system is functioning in the public interest and functioning with integrity. What if government agents or even whole agencies are not pursuing justice but are themselves acting in a corrupt manner designed to serve a private or a corrupt purpose?
Abortion is the dehumanization of the unborn. It is murder. Abortion is un-American and illegal. Consequently, protecting, committing, funding, or participating in the act is criminal. Period.
Contrary to Socialism, in America we have an absolute God-given right to property given to us by our Creator. We can find this right recorded in the sacred text
I received a message from a reader, who I believe to be sincere, stating, “The Founders NEVER intended to favor Christianity over any other religion… None of the founders were explicitly Christian except the couple who were ministers.
Lastly, we definitely need to understand that when our founders referred to the Lord, they were referring to Jesus. George Washington acknowledged Christ as the Divine Author of our blessed religion.
During the years of 1776-1835 in America, various educational choices were established that brought about a 70-100% literacy rate in the colonies, much higher than what existed in Europe, which had many more universities. During the founding era, churches (NOT the government) became involved and established charity schools for the poor in the community who could not afford to pay teachers
