Quote of the Week

“We will all die one day. That is one of the few things we can be sure of. But will we die well? That is less certain. Dying well means dying for others, making our lives fruitful for those we leave behind. The big question, therefore, is not ‘What can I still do in the years I have left to live?’ but ‘how can I prepare myself for my death so that my life can continue to bear fruit in the generations that will follow me?

One More Reason to Vote for Trump

I've just returned from a trip to Asia which I'll share about in future posts. But center stage this week is the Republican National Convention which demands some attention.

Why is choosing our government leaders so important? Because the Church and the State cast the greatest influence on culture and civilizations.

The Church is meant to be the salvific and prophetic voice in the world. When we lead people to Christ and teach people His ways, then nations experience the blessings of justice and freedom. When we "turn out the lights," evil takes its place.

Governments are designed to protect God-given rights and punish evil. Good governments bring peace and stability to society. Bad governments make the people "mourn" (Proverbs 29:2).

This week I'll share some thoughts on the Republican Convention and next week, the Democrats.

I now have one more reason to vote for Donald Trump.

The Reverse Revolutionary War

This summer my wife and I are enjoying watching Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Patriots, a television mini-series. The companion book by the same name is currently the number one best-selling non-fiction read in the United States.

The series unearths some of the unknown details on the American Revolutionary time period--the era that produced the most exceptional nation in history because its social and political ideas were based on God's wisdom as found in the Bible.

As an American, I've always thought about the Revolutionary War from the standpoint of being a Yank. We won. The British lost.

But after the Brexit vote on June 23--with 52% of the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union--at least for the moment, I'm changing sides. Hail the Tories!  They won (and we're still losing).

Here are my thoughts on the Reverse Revolutionary War.
