Liar

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

I believe our president is a Christian, at least to his own satisfaction. However, given his breathtaking track record of lying about issues large and small, I wouldn’t blame anyone for doubting his sincerity about it. If he can lie about something as sensitive as “gay marriage,” what wouldn’t he lie about?

Releasing

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Forgiveness for one whose offense continues brazenly involves, I think, releasing one’s right to retribution, leaving it in God’s hands, and wanting the best for the other person, even though he or she doesn’t deserve it. It certainly does not mean excusing the sinful choices that prompted the need for forgiveness.

Two More Five-Star Reviews

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

“Very interesting … extremely thought-provoking.”

“It’s highly readable and easy to understand. It’s written for the layperson and not the scholar. I also think it’s a great starting point for a teacher who is looking to teach a survey through the Bible and is looking for a starting place. You could build a series around the ’66 key verses’ that Guthrie has chosen.”

Is there any truth to the rumor that the very youthful-looking Jen Psaki and Marie Harf are the same person?

Motives

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

The Obama administration’s revealing comment that terror groups such as ISIS would be stymied if their members had jobs is not only naive, though it is that. It betrays a blinkered, materialistic perspective common in the West today–that people really care only about and are motivated by material things.

This very Marxist interpretation of human behavior not only fails to do justice to the motives and worldview of the Islamic State. At a more basic level it fails to grasp the incurable religious impulse at the heart of most of human history. Perhaps one reason the president is so loath to name the religious motives of ISIS is because, as a basically secular man, he has lost the ability to comprehend them.

Legitimacy

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

President Obama says calling the Islamic State “Islamic” would confer legitimacy on it. If that’s the reasoning, then why won’t he identify the 21 Egyptian Copts beheaded by ISIS as “Christians”? Is he afraid of giving them legitimacy, too?
