The Apex of History

I have an incredible chart of history. It shows the spread of people groups, the rise and fall of world empires, the modern world wars, major epidemics, important discoveries and inventions—thousands and thousands of key events in the chronology of human affairs from creation week until it was published in 1992 and given to me as a phenomenal gift. I refer to it often. But none of thes...

Cancelling Religion and Parents

For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads. They lay crafty plans against your people; they consult together against your treasured ones. Psalm 83:2-3 The headline in our newspaper read: “Religious reference upsets D-20 parents”. Our local school district is having a battle. A new Board Member thinks parents should have mo...

Standing by While the Weak Are Raped

We have all heard of the unforgivable situation where people stand and watch someone being mugged or beaten to death. I wrote earlier about the brazen nature of crime in our country and how people simply stand by and watch it happen, afraid to intervene. This, of course, is what happens when we lose the vision and responsibility of being Noble Males and Virtuous Females. We care more about o...

Surging Crime and a Look At Its Causes

“Crime is first a moral issue. Failure to address it on that level ensures it will only get worse.” Cal Thomas Unless you are a Rumpelstiltskin, you must be keenly aware of our culture’s surging crime. In our own city, we have had eight murders already this year compared to only one by this time last year… and last year we set a record high for murders. This is in...

Kruptikos: When a New Culture Arose and the Definition of Words Changed

“It’s a hammer of justice, it’s a bell of freedom, it’s a song about the love between a brother and a sister, all over this land.” Peter, Paul and Mary It is easy to look at the 60’s as a major turning point in America. It would also be easy to go too far in consigning everything there, for in actuality the forces of change go back to Rousseau and beyond...

Don’t Say: If the Foundations Are Destroyed, What Can the Righteous Do?

In today’s Psalm 11, we find a verse that I believe has sometimes been misused. Here it is: “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Occasionally, you will hear it quoted to support a cry or plea regarding what is happening in our nation. The purpose is to rally listeners to stand against the forces that seek to destroy our national foundations,...

Happy 12321

It doesn’t happen too often that a date is a palindrome, which means it reads the same both forward and backward. What is unique about today’s date is that it followed yesterday’s palindrome: 12022021. I leave it to you to figure out when this will ever happen again or if it has ever happened in the past. However, all of this got me thinking about calendar dates and espe...

Roe v. Wade – Is It Possible?

Arguments are being made before the Supreme Court in what some are speculating could be the early indications that they will throw out Roe v. Wade. Wait! Is this possible? Is it possible that a nation who has been so bent on turning away from God could actually reverse one of its most egregious and unethical legal positions? I have to admit being skeptical until USA Today, no less, publis...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#7) The Attack Upon the Biblical Family

Of all the social institutions designed by God, I suppose none is under greater attack than the family. This shouldn’t surprise us, for destroying relationships is the ultimate scheme of Satan and it is here we find the most intimate. Indeed, it seems that the entirety of the world, the flesh and the enemy are today aligned against the biblical family. And the family is the heart of a cul...

Gratitude for Sculpting

It is, I suppose, a mark of our lack of gratitude that we have to set aside a day for it. A few days ago, we were having dinner at my daughter’s house. She and my son-in-law had a large pumpkin on the coffee table upon which our grandkids were daily writing things they were thankful for. I find, unfortunately, that the things that come to my mind in these instances, and what prompted t...
