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?

The Rise of the Secular Regressives

Nations normally die slowly when people turn away from their cultural foundations. Political parties are similar, even more closely reflecting the shifts in public thinking because they make up a smaller portion of the electorate.

Evangelicals Vote for Judgment on America

May 4, 2016, may some day be described as the day America died. For me, that day, to quote Charles Dickens, was the "best of times and worst of times."

That evening I attended the 25th celebration of Shirley Dobson's leadership of the National Day of Prayer in Washington, D.C. Her celebration was the BEST.

But prior to the evening banquet and prayer time, I was talking with Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert about the past two days he had barn-stormed Indiana with Ted Cruz. While we were talking, the Trump victory in the Indiana Republican primary was announced.

Our hearts sank as we realized that Ted Cruz--the "closest to Reagan" candidate in a generation--had been eliminated.That feeling was the WORST.

This will be the first of a trilogy on the 2016 elections. The second article will discuss how the Republican Party has devolved. The third will state who I plan to support. You may be surprised.

But first, how Evangelicals have voted for judgment on America.
