7 Threats in Our Times: (#1) The Rise of the Scoffer and the Depraved Mind

[previous] There are two progressions in Scripture that appear to be manifested in our culture and in our times. These are not onward and upward progressions, but more of a downward spiral. One of those progressions comes primarily from Proverbs where we are introduced to three kinds of people: the simple, the fool, and the scoffer. They are continually contrasted with the wise. We meet a...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#2) The Rise of Homo Deus and Meo Christianity

In the luxury of a culture where even the lower economic classes live like kings compared to the world’s poor, we have become immensely spoiled. We are lavished with bins overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables in the dead of winter, aisles full of choice cut-meats, acres of shelves filled with more products than anyone could possibly want, stores with racks of clothes and shoes of ev...

The Perfect Storm: Seven Threats to America in Our Times

On Oct 30, 1991, there was strange confluence of weather forces that brought about what came to be known as “the Perfect Storm”, a name that was coined by author Sebastian Junger. The word “perfect”, in this case, does not mean something good and wonderful, but it reflected the crazy fluke that numerous meteorological events were all happening at the same time and place....

Bigotry and Rejecting the Truth of Individual Depravity

When a culture rejects the truth of the depravity of man (a fallen, sinful nature), they are left with the difficult task of accounting for the existence of evil in the world. This inevitably leads to assuming that evil comes from something external to the individual. Marxism and Wokeism, as did Maslow, points to social institutions as the source of evil: family, church, state, capitalism, e...

Thoughts on Ravi Zacharias

There aren’t too many people who are known simply by their first name. Ravi is one of them. He is gone now, but instead of leaving a legacy of great work, we are left with worse than nothing. An independent investigation by the law firm, Miller and Martin, through sufficient interviews and examination of cell phone photos and messages, concluded that Ravi engaged in extended sexual mis...

Socialism (5): Creation of the Victim Class

Let’s return to our excerpts from the Marxism/Socialism game plan. I have substituted “victim class” for “working class” and will explain why: Pit classes against each other, make the ruling class the hated enemy and the victim class the righteous underdog. Promise the victim class, through revolution, a redemptive hope of utopia and the spoils of civil war...

Socialism (6): Intersectionality

One of the growing pieces of the Marxist/Socialist worldview in our culture is the theory of intersectionality. If you haven’t heard of it, you will. It is an important element used to help create a “victim class”. The theory of intersectionality was developed by Kimberle Crenshaw, a professor at both UCLA and Columbia Law Schools. She was also key in developing Critical R...
