Rush to judgment? Three crucial questions remain unanswered about Capitol siege

This new evidence raises the first compelling question that remains unanswered. How could Trump incite an attack that had already been pre-planned and was in motion before his speech ended?

(John Solomon – Just the News)  One thing recent history has taught America is the first storyline of major tragedies or controversies is never the most accurate.

Americans were told by the Bush administration that they were sucker-punched by a surprise attack on 9/11 by terrorists, only to learn the CIA and FBI had significant advance evidence of the plot and its players and failed to connect the dots. Continue reading

PBS top lawyer says gov should build ‘enlightenment camps’ and remove children from Trump supporting homes

PROFANITY ALERT

“Beller suggests removing the children from parents who supported Trump and then sending them to enlightenment camps.”

(Sarah Carter) This is what the leftists, along with those that support their agenda, think about Americans. It’s in their own words. Believe them when they say it.

“Americans are so f—–g dumb,” said PBS Principal Counsel Michael Beller, who was chatting with one of Project Veritas‘ undercover self-described guerilla journalists. “You know most people are dumb.” Continue reading

Cross

37 The one who  loves a father or mother more than Me is not worthy of me and the one loving a son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And the one who does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me. 39 The one who has found his life will lose it and the one who has lost lost his life because of me will find it. Matthew 10:37-39 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

When we say, “The Cross,” we state the very focal point of history. The Old Testament points to it, the New Testament presents it, and the Christian proclaims it. It is the cross that is our salvation, not religion…. Continue reading

The Biggest Gun Forum On The Planet Was Just Kicked Off The Internet Without Explanation

(Jordan Davidson – The Federalist)  AR15.com, the biggest gun forum in the world, was deplatformed on Monday by web hosting company GoDaddy.

“ARFCOM IS DOWN. We’ve been booted from GoDaddy and are looking for an alternative solution,” the site announced Monday afternoon on Twitter.

The swift termination by internet host GoDaddy forced AR15.com’s leadership to think on their feet and quickly create a temporary URL so “freedom lovers and firearm enthusiasts” could continue to access the information and resources on the site. Continue reading

Bevy Of Famous Christian Apologists Speak Out Against Ravi Zacharias and RZIM

“Though RZIM has hired an independent auditing team to pursue matters further, every indication thus far is that RZIM has no intention of taking it seriously or expanding the scope of the probe.”

(Protestia)  A bevy of Christian apologists and philosophers, led by William Lane Craig, has released a collective statement directed towards Ravi Zacharias International Ministry, (RZIM) urging the embattled ministry to be fully transparent in their investigation of their namesake and emphasizing the need to “openly acknowledge their own complicity” in his abuses.

Victor Davis Hanson Provides Sage Advice But Only One Side Listens

Democrats have taken nothing but a step forward. Freshman Representative Cori Bush (D-Mo.) submitted legislation to have Republican Congress members removed for “incitement.” On Twitter, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) resign. It is as if these women forget the roles they played in the riots nationwide this summer.”

(Stacey Lennox – PJ Media)  Victor Davis Hanson may be one of the wisest commentators in America. A classicist, historian, and prolific writer, he tends to see things with amazing clarity. His comments on Tucker Carlson Tonight following the melee at the Capitol yesterday were no exception. Continue reading

Idol

21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols. 1 John 5:21 (NASB) 

Our English word idol is derived from the Greek εἴδωλον (eidōlon). Homer used eidōlon for phantoms and apparitions. In later Classical Greek, it carried the other non-religious meanings of picture, copy, or “any unsubstantial form, an image reflected in a mirror or water, an image or idea in the mind.”

In the Septuagint, however, eidōlon is used to translate some fifteen Hebrew words and always refers to the images of heathen gods and the gods themselves…. Continue reading

Christian Options Living Under a Marxist Regime

“My own assessment of our predicament is probably a combination of these options.  I obviously don’t believe in escapism.  The church must begin speaking to the cultural issues of the day.  Our people must be taught how to think biblically.” 

(Larry E. Ball)  The elections are over and the political left has taken over the national government in the United States.  They own the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the White House.  The tyranny of the Cancel Culture is now in total power, and their agenda is to crush all opposition. Continue reading

Michelle Obama Gave The Order for Big Tech to Delete President Trump From Social Media Platforms

“Her solution to stopping such riots is to shut up the president and anyone else who agrees with him, just like other people we’ve seen through history.”

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media)  It really is a thing to behold the Left’s active effort to send all the riots, unrest, and fires of the past several years down the memory hole. When Ferguson, Missouri, was set on fire by Black Lives Matter and Lisa Fithian-trained shock troops, no one called for Barack Obama to be taken off Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media. Continue reading

Democrats Were For Riots Before They Were Against Them

“You can’t normalize political violence and then expect it to be a one-sided affair. After months in which BLM mobs attacked a federal courthouse in Portland, throwing fireworks and shining lasers in the eyes of law enforcement personnel, toppled statues across the country, and injured hundreds of police officers, the Democrats and their media are suddenly outraged.”

(Daniel Greenfield – Front Page Magazine)  In 2018, the media was writing up glowing stories about the hundreds of Women’s March members who were engaging in “direct action” to disrupt the Senate’s Kavanaugh hearings. Continue reading

Supreme Court Rejects Fast Track for Trump Election Cases

(News Max)  The Supreme Court on Monday formally refused to put on a fast track election challenges filed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

The court rejected pleas for quick consideration of cases involving the outcome in five states won by President-elect Joe Biden: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The orders, issued without comment, were unsurprising. The justices had previously taken no action in those cases in advance of last week’s counting of the electoral votes in Congress, which confirmed Biden’s victory. Continue reading

The Deep Things of God

6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; 9 but just as it is written,“THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 1 Corinthians 2:6-10 (NASB) 

I’m sure the title of this post struck some of you in a way hard to explain. When I first started this study, I could not help but think back on an investigation I did many years ago into some false teachings by a man who claimed that his ministry was based entirely “in the deep things of God.”….

Paul and Silas in Philippi

11 And having set sail from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and on the next day to Neapolis 12 and from there to Philippi, which is a prominent city of the District of Macedonia, a colony, and we stayed in this city some days. Acts 16:11-12  (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

As you know, Paul’s friend and companion Luke wrote the book of Acts in the New Testament. In Acts 16:10, we read that after Paul and seen the vision to leave Asia and come to Europe after seeking the will of God for next focus of his missionary journey, Luke includes himself in the narrative as an eyewitness, therefore, his account of what happened to Paul and Silas in Philippi are given as one who was there.

Rush Limbaugh: Swamp, Pelosi Scared to Death of Trump’s Final Days

“The four-year coup, the four-year effort to get the election results of 2016 overturned, there are all kinds of people who broke the law, all kinds of people who are quaking in their boots,” he added. “They’re worried silly that Trump is gonna unleash some of these classified documents.”

(Sandy Fitzgerald – Newsmax)  Washington’s “swamp” and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are “scared out of their gourd” about President Donald Trump’s remaining days in office, according to radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Continue reading

ERLC Finally Owns Revoice, Promoting Founder in ‘Parent’s Guide to Gender’

“He [Nate Collins] who describes himself as a “gay man in a mixed-orientation marriage,” did his dissertation at Al Mohler’s SBTS, arguing that “virgin” is a third gender in the scriptures, enjoys gay art, and made grotesquely unbiblical statements in Christianity Today [a site CRN does not endorse].”

(Protestia)  After years of denial and feigned ignorance, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) – the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), has finally taken ownership of the LGBTQ-affirming organization Revoice. Continue reading

ABC News Executive Calls for ‘Cleansing’ the Trump Movement From America

“The media are cheering on the lists of Trump supporters being amassed by the Left in order to cancel them and keep them off of boards of directors, academia, and other institutions. A Leftist website with the Orwellian name “The Truth Accountability Project” has answered the call of the Jennifer Rubins and AOCs to keep a list of those who must be purged from history.”

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media)  When you were told consistently that it wasn’t President Trump they were after it was you, you might have had some doubts. But it turns out this was correct. Not only do the media want to get rid of President Trump, they want to get rid of every vestige of Trump thought and everything he represents. In case you’re wondering – that’s you. Continue reading

Forgiveness

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:3-12 (NASB)  Read verses 7-12 on the site.

The key to understanding the passage above is in getting who the “us” is that Paul mentions repeatedly all through it. Whoever they are, they are indeed blessed. Of course Paul is talking about those who are called, those who believe the Gospel and are redeemed out of spiritual death unto eternal life in Christ…. Continue reading

Christianity Today Lays Responsibility For Violence at Feet of ‘White American Church’

“Naturally, this post was co-signed by a host of fellow progressives, with Beth Moore being no exception.”

(Protestia) Christianity Today, the progressive rag known for giving a platform to every weird and liberally insidious bent, has come out swinging against the violence at Capitol Hill yesterday, laying the responsibility for the mayhem at the feet of the “white American church” and any leaders who voted for and supported the President. Continue reading

The End

“Trump’s presidency will end, but it’s unclear where he goes from here. The Republican Party as we know it also is over; the GOP’s disloyalty to the president and his voters in the final stretch will not be soon forgotten. And Republican control of the Senate during the Trump era ends just how it began, in making a bargain to do the Left’s bidding and ultimately acting as the Democratic Party’s useful idiots.”

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness)  In the end, almost everyone got what they deserved.

The president’s Achilles’ heel—relying on the wrong people to advance his political interests—led to his final ouster this week. Donald Trump ran out of runway and instead of preparing for a soft landing, he pumped the gas…. Continue reading

The Coming Purge of All Things and People Trump

“Senator Josh Hawley has been fingered as the scapegoat in the mob attack on the Capitol. It’s not exactly clear why. It could be that he was the most visible Senator who, in a completely legal and constitutional fashion, challenged the results of the Electoral College. You may believe he was right or you may think him crazy. Whatever your opinion, what he did was perfectly legal.”

(Rick Moran – PJ Media)  Around 3500 years ago in ancient Egypt, there lived a pharaoh who didn’t believe there were multiple gods ruling the universe. Pharaoh Akhenaten believed there was only one god — Aten the sun god…. Continue reading

The Mystery

28 So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body. 31 FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:28-32 (NASB) 

In our 21st Century languages, the word “mystery” is used as a series of clues to be figured out. However, the Apostle Paul used the Greek word μυστήριον (mustērion) six times in the book of Ephesians, twice in Romans, once in 1 Corinthians, four times in Colossians, and once in 1 Timothy….
