Fraud

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

A total fraud, Hillary Rodham Clinton represents the worst in American politics. Anyone who supports her, to be consistent, should never again complain about “the tone of our political discourse.”

Terrorists

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Hillary Clinton, desperate to fire up her base and change the conversation, accuses Republicans of treating women as the terrorists do. Does she mean the Islamist terrorists given free rein in North Africa and the Middle East, thanks to her ineptitude as secretary of state? I might be more inclined to listen to her if she had not taken millions from repressive Muslim governments in “donations” for her foundation and “speaking fees” for her woman-abusing husband. And when did Mrs. Clinton speak up for women then?

Never.

Our Problem Isn’t Guns or Mental Illness, It’s Godlessness

Friday, August 28th, 2015

By Matt Walsh

We never want to talk about evil in this country, do we? We rarely even say the word. We’re so shallow and distracted in our thinking. Everything has to be political or psychological, easily solved through policies or laws or pharmaceuticals. But all the drugs and legislation in the world won’t change the fact that humans are sinful and angry, and sometimes they do evil things on purpose, and not for any reason other than their own sick lust for vengeance, power, and pleasure.

Scapegoating

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

I realize the Virginia shooter had mental issues, but isn’t it possible that all the racial hate-mongering against white people in the wake of the Charleston church massacre pushed him over the edge? He said as much in his “manifesto.” We simply must find ways to discuss race without scapegoating whole classes of people.

A Warning about Trigger Warnings

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

By John Stonestreet

On many college campuses, a movement is afoot to shut down statements or topics that might offend some people, or that will “trigger” unpleasant feelings or emotions. They’re called “microagressions.” And what qualifies as a “microagression” that may “trigger” someone these days can get downright ridiculous.

My book, God’s Story in 66 Verses, is a featured resource at the end of this commentary. Read it and find out why!

Crazy

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

President Obama labels those who oppose the Iran deal–presumably including those in his own party–as “crazies.” Yet when he returns from another long vacation, what does our commander in chief say is the greatest threat to our nation?

Climate change.

Just who is the crazy one, anyway?

God’s Story on YouTube

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

By John Stonestreet

Americans “consider the Bible to be important in a general sort of way,” said Kenneth Berding, a professor of New Testament at Biola University. But that rarely translates into actually studying or understanding it. For many, the Bible is a decoration on the mantelpiece, seldom dusted off or given more than a passing glance. And the reason that we, despite identifying as a majority Christian nation, are biblically illiterate really boils down to this: We just don’t read it.

And then there’s God’s Story in 66 Verses.

Desperate

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

The Democrats, increasingly panicked about the prospects of the Hillary Clinton coronation, are casting about for an electable alternative. They must really be desperate, because so far the best they have come up with is … Joe Biden, the human gaffe machine. In a nation of more than 300 million souls, is this two-time loser the Democrats’ idea of their best and their brightest?

Another five-star review!

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

“Another easy to read and understand book. Guthrie is an excellent writer and knows his subject. He describes 60 predictions from throughout the Bible, iincluding showing that the death and resurrection of Jesus was predicted several times in the Old Testament. He includes prophecies all the way to the last days. I loved the book and even though I have studied the Bible all of my life, I still learn all the time and definitely learned reading this book.”

Colson Center Editor at Large

Monday, August 24th, 2015

I met Chuck Colson during my eight-plus years working as an editor for Christianity Today (Chuck was a CT columnist who took great interest in the magazine). Chuck appreciated my take on issues and was gracious enough to stay in touch over the years. He even endorsed one of my books!

Just over six years ago, amid a season of economic turmoil, Christianity Today let me go. Almost out of the blue, Chuck offered me a column on his BreakPoint.org website. Soon, I was helping with some of his scripts. While the money was nice, I was most pleased having a small role in the success of such a great ministry.

After Chuck’s unexpected death in 2012, BreakPoint kept using my services, as I helped Eric Metaxas and John Stonestreet, who were attempting to fill Chuck’s considerable spit-shined shoes. Over these last few years, it has been a privilege to work with and learn from a great team at the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, including David Carlson, Gina Dalfonso, Gregory Shane Morris, Sherrie Irvin, and Roberto Rivera.

Well, in the mail today I received a very gratifying letter from David informing me that I am now recognized as Editor at Large for the Center. Thanks to all, especially David, who puts up with me the most. It’s a great honor to continue to be associated with a ministry that Chuck founded, an honor I don’t take lightly. Here’s to many more years of effective ministry together.

To God be the glory.
