CULTURE WAR

Our New World and the Character It Will Require

Fourteen years ago, while taking a prayer walk in the east Texas countryside, God spoke to my heart that the world was about to change–radically. I thought it would happen immediately (prophetic people sometimes get the right idea but miss the timing).Looking back, I believe the Obama years accelerated change in America–and now it is…

Critical Race Theory and Satan’s Voice

Much is happening in our world this week with the “Freedom Convoy” in Canada, (we need one in every nation), tensions on the Ukrainian border, and the censorship battle over the “The Joe Rogan Experience.” The global civil war for freedom and souls is heating up–and we must be armed with knowledge and on be fire…

What Will It Take to Awaken the Prodigal West?

One thing that separates the Bible from the Koran is the prevalence of stories that inspire us about life and truth. While the Koran contains the “recitations” of one man over a few weeks, the Bible was written by forty authors over two thousand years. That’s an amazing difference. Because of its depth and breadth, God’s…

What I’m Doing Because of What I See

I’m enjoying daily Bible devotions this year using my “original Bible”–the one I cut my teeth on when I first became a disciple. The old, black, leather book is held together with duct tape and contains the New American Standard translation. It’s wildly marked up after decades of study. I started reading it from cover-to-cover…

My View of the World 2022

Roly Houghton, a New Zealand spiritual father, passed away this week at the age of ninety-two. I lived with him and his family in Auckland in 1972-73 while seeking God’s will for my life. He was a man of God’s Word–distributing Bibles to every home in NZ. He also served in leadership with Open Doors,…

Alice Cooper Comes Home to Jesus

I remember two famous “Coopers” in my youth. D.B. Cooper hijacked an airplane and “parachuted out” in my home state never to be heard from again. The other was Alice Cooper, a guy with a weird name who became a legendary rock star. I hadn’t thought of Alice Cooper for many years when a friend…

Yes, (State of) Virginia, There Is a God

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” is a line from “Is There a Santa Claus?”–an editorial that appeared in an 1897 edition of the New York Sun. It ranks as the most reprinted newspaper editorial in the English language. Virginia was a little girl who needed assurance of faith in Santa. On November 9,…

A World Without the Ten Commandments

Much of the world has never experienced the blessing of the Ten Commandments. That’s why India and many smaller nations are poor (according to Indian thinker Vishal Mangalwadi in The Book That Made Your World), and graft and bribery are widespread. When you don’t have a moral foundation that creates freedom, you are ripe for tyranny…

Joe Biden and America in Trouble

If there was ever a time for an electorate to repent (be humble, sorrowful, and change their mind) over the choice of a leader, it’s now. It’s hard to believe that eighty-one million Americans voted for the 46th president of the United States who is in obvious cognitive decline, with no real principles, who used…

The Reasons for Covid

I saw a provocative (and humorous) cartoon some months back on how Covid 19 came into being. In the cartoon, Barack Obama is speaking on the phone to President Xi Jinping of China. Just as he had quietly stated to the former president of Russia, Dimitry Medvedev, in his famous “Tell Vlad” exchange, Obama whispers…
