This is a story to keep an eye on.  I know, they not beheading Christians here in the U.S.  They are only fining, putting us out of business, expelling us from school, potentially taking our home and even threatening us with jail.  Remember, though, that’s also how it started in the Middle East.  14 years ago, Christians were living in peace next to their Muslim neighbors in Syria, Iraq and even Egypt.  Today, they are being crucified.

Keep this woman in your prayers.  Ask yourself what you are going to do when you have to make her choice.

This is what happens when Christians keep silent in our society.  The world steps in and demands that you either reject God or be destroyed.  Remember that this is no different than tolerating Winter break rather than Christmas.  I don’t understand why so many Christians are afraid of offending someone.  The reality is, that fact that you are a believer and exist is sufficient to give offense.  To be seen is even worse.  To be heard – especially in our schools and universities – is rapidly becoming a crime.  This is spiritual warfare at its worst.

What you have to keep in mind here is that he mentions both critical impact areas of what he calls “Obamanet” (I like that phrase…)  The most important thing to take away is that these are regulations being passed to fix a problem that does not exist.

Everyone keeps focusing on the economics.   Yes, problems have threatened, but market pressures have prevented them from coming about.  Market forces have kept the internet working smoothly and more responsively than government could ever possibly do.  Yet this is not the real danger of the impending federal regulations.

The real danger of these regulations is (more…)

New TV series hunts evidence for Jesus.

I don’t even understand why this is a story.  Every year there are a whole swath of Jesus Seminar hit pieces.  When I’m teaching my intro to apologetics, one of the things we do is take one of the more current one of these and deconstruct it.
