THE FAITH IN FIFTY YEARS: ALCOHOL, MARIJUANA, AND HOMOSEXUALITY

One of the most important questions that can be asked is, “What is truth?” As Christians, we believe that God’s Word is truth. Thus, if God’s Word says something like, “Do not steal,” then we know that the truth is that we shouldn’t steal. No questions asked. We also know (or should know) that if […]

A SOUTHERN BAPTIST PASTOR INTERVIEWS A HOMOSEXUAL

It was in sixth grade that I met Matt. He had moved to my hometown of Mabank, Texas from Colorado Springs. We met in band and became friends. We weren’t the best of friends, but we were more than acquaintances. Although we now live on opposite sides of the nation, through the magic of social […]

THE TOP THREE REASONS TO HAVE AN ABORTION

I should probably add to the title: “And Why They Are Unwarranted.” Some weeks ago “#praytoendabortion” became a trend on Twitter. And, to the astonishment of many, the trend lasted for a few days. These astonished individuals, considering the trend unwarranted, tweeted such statements as, “#PrayToEndAbortion is such an ignorant trend. Women deserve the right to their […]

THE BIBLICAL BATTLE OF LITTLE-BIG HORN: A HISTORICAL-PROPHETICAL LESSON

Mike Huckabee, in his show’s October 20 opening monologue, discussed the differences between two historical battles–the Alamo and Little Bighorn. He asks, “Did the Republicans make a heroic stand as in the Alamo, or a poorly planned and executed assault like Little Bighorn?” “In the Alamo,” Huckabee notes, “men fought to the death to protect […]

HATING PEOPLE WHO HATE PEOPLE, WHEN THEY REALLY DON’T HATE PEOPLE AT ALL

The other day a song came on the radio that I later discovered is named, “Same Love.” I was mesmerized by the opening line because the musician, Macklemore, raps, “When I was in the third grade I thought I was gay, ’cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.“ I intentionally […]

THE TRUTH TEST: WHY TRUTH SHOULD DICTATE BELIEFS AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND

On March 30 an article appeared in the Odessa American entitled, “The Meaning of Equality,” in which I argued for the “traditional” definition of marriage. To this a reader responded by submitting a letter to the editor, which appeared in the April 14 edition of the Odessa American with what I consider largely an ad […]

THE MEANING OF EQUALITY

A homosexual should have the right to get married . . . (Keep reading) . . . so long as he understands that marriage is between one man and one woman and that to enjoy that right he must submit himself to that traditional understanding of the institution. Therefore, it’s not even necessarily that a […]

WHAT GOD THINKS ABOUT THE UNITED NATIONS’ RECOGNITION OF PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD

Last week the United Nations overwhelmingly voted to recognize Palestinian statehood within the state of Israel. While this vote holds about as much “official” weight concerning ownership of the land as a feather among a rack of dumbbells, the vote does reveal that the world, even after thousands of years, is against the Jews and […]

SHOULD AMERICA STAND WITH ISRAEL?

On October 22, 2012 President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney met for a third and final debate prior to the 2012 presidential election. The topic was “Foreign Policy,” a topic that, in light of Benghazi at that time and Israel now, is hotter than a West Texas summer. In that debate Bob Shieffer asked […]

HEAR LIES, DEMOCRACY: WHAT FOUR MORE YEARS OF OBAMA MEANS FOR AMERICA

No, the title is not misspelled. It is as intentional as the media bias towards Obama. Hear the lies, democracy, because it won’t be long until we are etching these words into our tombstone: “Here Lies Democracy.” If you are a conservative Christian, then it is likely that your expectations for “hope and change” were […]
