Lukewarm and Under Persecution

Christian-Persecution

The great question in churches today should be, “When are we going to wake up?” Christianity is persecuted around the world and illegal in many countries. In America we are also losing our right to practice our religion unimpeded, but we continue to sit in our comfortable pews on the day of worship and adapt […]

Traffic Cameras: Safety or Cash?

Though his efforts did not succeed in banning traffic cameras from Iowa (“Two Decisions Made in Favor of Mobile Speed Cameras“), at least State Senator Brad Zaun of Urbandale had the courage to say that traffic  cameras can increase revenue, but not necessarily safety.  We’ve been down a similar path before, when cameras were added […]

I’d Rather be an Orthodox Christian

“Orthodox” — “Conforming to what is accepted as right or true” (from the Merriam-Webster dictionary) Christian denominations, or even various divisions in each, like to claim (or even insist), that they are the only truly orthodox Christian group; the only “true” church.

Is there a need for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam to stand in unity?  Should they […]

Can We be “Good” Without Absolutes?

“Be good for goodnes’ sake” was a phrase seen on buses and billboards earlier this year. The message is that you can be good without a base from which to decide what is “good.”  Supposedly, there is an inborn morality within each of us that can do the right thing. One does not need God to […]

Can Christians Say “Yes” to All Faiths?

On my way to breakfast today I noticed one of those bumper stickers that has the symbols of many religions laid out in a line. The message is that all religions are equal and that trying to share your own faith with someone of another is verboten. That leaves Christians (and others as well)  in […]
