Easter

In Some Places, Easter Isn’t Being Celebrated. It’s Being Fined.

A Justice Department spokesman announced last Friday that it is closely “monitoring” the situation. Two nonprofit organizations, the Alliance Defending Freedom and the First Liberty Institute, are filing lawsuits on behalf of several churches that have been threatened with criminal sanctions. Almost everyone agrees churches that openly flout social-distancing orders and allow members to be in very close proximity can’t be tolerated. But it is in times of crisis like this that many people most need the ministrations of clergy and the hope that religion provides. We shouldn't forget the reason the Founders made freedom of religion the First Amendment.

An Easter rebirth for our economy? Hallelujah

The obvious implication is that it is impossible to eliminate the coronavirus, but we can contain it and get on with our lives, as we must. That, too, is both realistic and necessary. It’s far too soon to be confident that the road ahead will be smooth and that the nation is on a direct path to recovery. Much about the deadly scourge still remains unknown, and it is worth remembering how recently it came from China and how much it has shaken nearly the entire planet in less than two months. Other nasty surprises cannot be ruled out. Against the upheaval, the old nostrums sound wise. Steady as she goes, be patient and take it one day at a time.

Behold the wood of the Cross…

Where is the pushback on Mrs. Clinton’s publicly announced plan that, if elected, she will lead her administration in a war on Christianity and Christian practices? The deafening silence from religious leaders is indicative of a problem we face throughout today’s body politic, and especially in the conservative movement, and that is a lack of moral courage in the face of pressure from those who seek to destroy our culture, the rule of law, and our liberty.

The Boldness of the Cross

What happened in Indiana and Arkansas this past week is an attempt by secular liberals to avoid a repeat of the circumstances that Acts 4 tells us allowed Peter and John to escape, at least for a time, the punishment secular authorities wish to mete out to those who unashamedly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and wish to live their daily lives by its tenets.

The Most Important Gift You Can Give This Christmas Is You

The gift God asks of us at Christmas is to make a sacrifice of ourselves and to turn away from sin and give ourselves to Jesus Christ.

A Day of Hope in a Season of Persecution

Today’s secular liberals just don’t seem to understand that when they try to drive Christians from the public square, or outlaw the public expression of Christian belief, we Christians have been there before.

The Gift of Christmas is Fulfilled at Easter

Now is the time to open your heart to the gift of God’s only begotten Son – follow the star that shines over Bethlehem and leads to a humble manger and, if you believe in him, to a Cross, the Resurrection, forgiveness of your sins and life everlasting.
