Your duty as a Christian in the Voting Booth is the same as it is everywhere: Do all to the Glory of God, Keep His Commandments. Pray without ceasing. Love Christ more than anything else in this world, and Trust God, rather than men. I have not been devoting much effort trying to persuade people […]
In the summer of 2011, The FAMiLY Leader (TFL) called on Republican presidential candidates to sign its marriage vow. When it was released, the Iowa organization said that it would not support or back any candidates that refused to sign the pledge. Mitt Romney refused to sign it, though he submitted an alternative pledge to […]
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association removed Mormonism from its website’s list of cults. Should evangelicals be concerned or should they follow suit?
A prayer meeting called “The Response” attracted 30,000 plus to Reliant Stadium in Houston on August 6th, 2011. The rally, initiated by Governor Rick Perry of Texas, was billed as non-political, though other similar rallies were planned in Iowa, Florida and Arizona, all coinciding with early Republican primaries in those states. Exactly one week to […]
Lord, bless and pity us, shine on us with thy face: That th’ earth thy way, and nations all may know thy saving grace. Let people praise thee, Lord; let people all thee praise. O let the nations be glad, in songs their voices raise: Thou’lt justly people judge, on earth rule nations all. Let […]
Fellow contributor to Caffeinated Thoughts, Adam Graham, has issued a challenge to my recent post about whether Christians should vote for unbelievers such as Mitt Romney, and whether principled pluralism is a good thing. I appreciate a good volley, and Adam is a worthy opponent, but I must reject his arguments on several grounds. Mr. […]

On a website called “For the Sake of the Gospel,” (FTSOTG), some Christian leaders—led by Jerry Johnson, John Ankerberg, and R.C Sproul, Jr.—have sounded a clear warning for Christians to distinguish […]
Now that the question of who the 2012 Republican presidential nominee will be seems to have been answered, another question is being hotly debated in Evangelical circles: Can an Evangelical Christian vote for Mitt Romney? It’s a question that’s been discussed all along, but for most Evangelicals, it was a question that they hoped they […]
Almost everybody in the Mitt Romney camp blames Mike Huckabee for thwarting the former Massachusetts Governor’s opportunity to be president in 2008 and giving us John McCain. They have suggested a secret whisper campaign in Iowa and elsewhere led Evangelical Christians to vote against “the Mormon”. Even today these Romney supporters make no distinction between […]
It happened at an airport. Satan slithered in to tempt a man. Quiet–yet insistent–he whispered, “You want to be President, don’t you? The most powerful man in the world. Think of all the good you can do. A gospel minister in the White House. God will be glorified—the name of Jesus lifted high!” The devil […]
Over the last six or nine months I have been growing ever more concerned over Glenn Beck and his Evangelical and Conservative followers. I have not been alone, there have been countless other Christian Laymen and Pastors have expressed the same concern when Mr. Beck started talking about God, Jesus and Faith. My question is […]
Mormon talk show host Glenn Beck has added an event called “Divine Destiny” to his Washington, DC rally schedule where “nationally-known religious figures from all faiths will unite to deliver messages reminiscent to those given during the struggles of America’s earliest days.” Beck continues: I have met with the biggest leaders of faith in the […]
1. Here’s to you Mr. Seeker-Sensitive Mega Church Pastor Guy! I’m not against mega churches, but I thought this was hilarious. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb9DF16Fx8k HT: C. Michael Patton 2. Planned Parenthood and other supporters of “comprehensive sex education” are now using the latest CDC study that shows that 26% of high school-aged girls have a sexually transmitted […]
To continue on with a recent conversation on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Bryce commented, “As Krister Stendahl, a prominent Lutheran, has pointed out, the best way to learn what another faith believes is to ask them directly, not their critics or enemies. You can learn more about the LDS Church by […]
