The Only Thing Progressive About Progressivism is Tyranny

For five decades I have watched liberalism morph into progressivism–and that’s not a good thing. Being “progressive” sounds forward thinking and cool. However, the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic with its lock downs and numerous governor/mayor edicts has exposed this dangerous philosophy as anything but positive or in favor of progress. We now see plainly that the…

The Other World War III

I was born too late to experience the horrors and deprivations of the first two World Wars (1914-18 and 1941-45). But I’ve read enough history to realize that any talk about World War III must be serious–especially with nuclear weapons. Since the recent killing of Qassem Soleimani, the terrorist head of the Iran’s elite Quds…

Affordable Housing’s Dirty Little Secret

I am not an economist and in this article, won’t pretend to be. Economic theory often confuses me–but I’m not alone. Our nation is 23 trillion dollars in debt and very few seem to care. But I am an American, a parent and a follower of Christ involved in helping people improve their circumstances by…

What Are They Resisting?

Even before Donald Trump became the president of the United States, a “Resistance Movement” began forming throughout our nation’s political hierarchy to block his leadership and policies. Hillary Clinton trumpeted the need for “Resistance” after her Electoral College defeat and many Never-Trumpers from both political parties simultaneously joined the chorus. This week the resistance movement…

The American Vision – Do You Share it?

For many years I was confused over the difference between a vision statement and a mission statement. Eventually, I sorted it out and now teach courses on this subject at Faith International University. Allow me to use our nation’s birthday–the 4th of July–to settle in your own mind the difference between vision and mission. We…

Blameless in His Time

A friend of mine pulled me aside at church recently to share some good and bad news. The good news was that after some prodding he was reading through the entire Bible “I’m doing it, Ron. Thanks for encouraging me,” he shared through a smile. Then came the bad news: “But, right now, I’m in…

Progressivism’s Fatal Flaw

The English language contains many words to describe lack of faith in God. Atheism seems to be the root term–though it appears harsh to some people. Secularism is similar, and simply means “worldly.” Then there is humanism which sounds cool but begins and ends with human beings (no God). Then there are the sensual terms…

The Real Meaning of MAGA

When I first heard Donald Trump use the phrase “Make America Great Again” during his 2016 presidential campaign, I had mixed feelings. Yes, I strongly love my nation. I consider the United States of America one of the greatest nations in world history. I’ll explain why in a moment. On the other hand, a weakened…

While the People Are Virtuous

The following text came to me yesterday from a fellow missions leader: “Hi, Ron. Besides voting, which doesn’t seem to do much good, is there anything else that can be done to slow down the runaway circus of government? It’s getting quite serious!” I gave him my answer, which I’ll share later. In today’s article,…

Is Social Media a Preview of Judgement Day?

After a short delay, the State of the Union address will take place in Washington, D.C. tonight. I will comment on President Trump’s view of the nation in future articles as well as the Democratic response by Stacey Abrams. Ms. Abrams is the failed gubernatorial candidate from Georgia. Her and Trump’s views of America are…
