“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.  At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”  Luke 21:25-28 (NIV)

 

Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.  Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.

Proverbs 4:14-15   (NIV)

 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Isaiah 5:20  (NIV)

 
Current Event Archives

 

As noted above, articles posted under Current Events are archived by category after a few days.  These archives are all accessible as sub-menu items under Current Events.  But it may be more convenient to access from here, since brief descriptions are included for each of the archive categories.

  • abortion - Self-explanatory.  Includes articles and information on Planned Parenthood.

  • christianity - Most articles involve Christian faith and behavior.  See also "first amendment" since religious freedom is a big deal these days.

  • entertainment - Not much gets archived here - generally movie reviews / recommendations and the like.

  • feminism - Feminism has gone off the deep end, so it is in the news a lot.

  • first amendment - Anything First Amendment related.  Not limited to freedom of religion.

  • humor - A joke or cartoon is added daily.  These do not first appear on this, the Current Events page.

  • inspirational - Articles, sometimes music, of an inspirational nature.  Alas, I don't encounter many of these.

  • islam & israel - Articles on either subject.  Not so many on Israel these days.  There is a separate archive for "islamic terrorism."

  • islamic terrorism - Just what you would think.

  • lgbt, etc. - Started as same sex marriage, but had to expand to cover a lot more territory.

  • other news - A sort of catchall when I can't decide what category.

  • other social issues - Covers social issues other than abortion and lgbt related.

  • politics - Lots of stuff, but since politics intrudes into so many other areas, some politically related articles may be put in another category.

  • race relations - Some years ago, there wouldn't be a need for this category.  Sadly, things have changed.

  • second amendment - Not too many articles as this seems to have quieted down.

  • spiritual readiness (warfare) - We are at war, so be prepared.

  • trail markers - Articles that can lead one to believe in the imminent return of Christ.  Since this is so common, in so many areas, most such articles just go under a different category.

(04/19/2021) ‘White Terror Is As American As The Stars And Stripes’: How The Left Is Answering Ibram Kendi’s Call For Racial Strife.  Race relations have been getting better and better in America, until ....  Question: which political party encourages racial strife?  It is the same one that benefits from racial strife.

(04/19/2021) The Joe Biden Who Never Was.  Good read.

(04/18/2021) Liberals melt down after Mike Rowe outlines the downside to raising minimum wage.  Is it not amazing how people want to silence the truth simply because they don't want it to be true - even when it obviously is.  Note that his critics attack him rather than argue that what he says isn't true.

(04/18/2021) Immigration and the Essential Cravenness of Joe Biden.  This is nothing new.  Biden takes what appears to be a principled stand and caves at the first push back - even when his initial position was favored by a majority.  He has done this his entire political career.  And probably before.

(04/17/2021) American Fascism.  It may not be knocking at your door, yet.  But if we don't start fighting back now, fascism won't bother to knock.

(04/17/2021) NJ Gov. Phil Murphy Pushes Ammo Purchase Database, .50 Caliber Rifle Ban.  I would wager that well over 95% of all crimes committed with a gun are committed by those who would pay no attention to these laws.  In short, there would be no benefit.  What next?  Why, even more of the same producing more of the same results.  Are any crimes at all committed with a .50 caliber rifle?  But they sure are scary!

(04/17/2021) This Progressive Pastor, Who Hates Oppression, Preaches Beliefs That are Certain to Create It.  The problem with this pastor isn't that he is gay, it is that he is committed to postmodernism rather than biblical truth.  This isn't unique to homosexuals.

(04/17/2021) Harvard Medical School doctors advocate race-based discrimination to favor minorities, calling it 'medical restitution.'  In short, declare evil to be good.  There is a lot of that going around these days. 

(04/17/2021) Facebook bans report on BLM co-founder's $3.2M home purchases.  So they have passed the point of banning stuff where they can make the claim of "misinformation," however weak.  They are now banning 100% factual stuff that makes their side look bad. 

(04/16/2021) How Biden Administration Redefines Words, Reshapes Facts to Serve Its Purposes. In other words, they lie.

(04/16/2021) Third-Grader Told to Remove “Jesus Loves Me” Face Mask. 

(04/15/2021) Bored with God — Complacency in the Midst of Chaos.  I think it is fair to say that we (Christians) don't take the current state of affairs in America seriously enough, and we don't take God seriously enough to be begging for his help.  Is God the only hope for America?  I believe so.

(04/15/2021) John Piper’s Son Has Become a Bible-Bashing Tik-Tok Star. What Can We Learn?  Plenty.  One is that the world can be very enticing and we humans are extremely good at rationalizing our behavior.  There are many other lessons, but one is that it only takes one Christian hypocrite to offset the good work of many faithful Christians. Some are just looking for one excuse and "hypocrites" is a favorite.   Don't be that one.

(04/15/2021) Kamala Harris Blames “Climate” for Historic Migrant Surge on the US Border — NOT Joe Biden’s Open Border Policies.  But this is the trend.  Never accept responsibility for something you are in the best position to do something about - because then people expect you to actually make things better.  Blame others and demand things that you desire but have nothing to do with the problem.  This is done at the political level, it is done at the personal level.  It is destroying our country and it is destroying individuals.

(04/14/2021) Jen Psaki Seems to Think White Evangelicals Are a Bunch of Uncultured Rednecks.  For a great many, looking down on others (justified or not) is the easiest way to feel good about oneself.  Who need to have positive accomplishments when you can just denigrate others instead?

(04/14/2021) These Lawsuits Reveal The Left’s Goal To Banish Religion Altogether.  Don't be silly.  They merely want religion to accept and conform to the progressive agenda.

(04/14/2021) NBC Anchor Holt Urges Media To Lie.  To be fair, what he is saying is that to present the views of people that disagree with him is to present "misinformation" and they should not do it.  What is remarkable is how many lies, misrepresentations and deceit are presented as truth by the MSM and how much truth and facts are proclaimed to be "misinformation," to be withheld from the public.

(04/14/2021) Capitol Building Killer Is Nation of Islam Follower, But Asian Doctor Says It Is Trump’s Fault.  One of the most destructive trends in America today is the abdication of personal responsibility.  Or rather, conservative, white, Christian males are personally responsible for everybody and everybody else is not responsible for for their own choices and actions.  Hyperbole?  Sure.  But not that far from the truth.

(04/13/2021) Portland Police Declare Riot As Protesters Vow To Burn Precinct Down, Lob Debris At Police, Set Fires In Street.  To be blunt, these things wouldn't happen if the local authorities took a firm stand and threw people in jail for violating the law rather than making excuses for them not even charging them.

(04/12/2021) Here is a three part series on discernment:

1 - Whatever Happened to Biblical Discernment? 

2 - Discerning the Times. 

3 - Discerning Ourselves. 

(04/11/2021) Identity Politics Is Destroying America.  What is horrifying is that advocates (apparently) genuinely believe that people are defined by their identity rather than by their actions and their character.  I can't discount the possibility that some are merely using this solely for political / power purposes.  But whatever the motivation, the result is the same: destroying the greatest and most successful experiment in liberty and freedom ever.

(04/11/2021) Canadian Police Barricade Church With Riot-Style Fence: ‘All Under the Guise of a Health Order.’  Canada.  Can't happen here, we say.  Hasn't it already?  In many parts of America, holding normal, in-person services could invite a similar response.

(04/11/2021) Coca-Cola Rips GA Voter ID Law but Required Photo ID to Get Into 2020 Shareholder Meeting.  Why do they require an ID?  Because only actual shareholders should be permitted to be involved - and to vote!  Makes perfect sense.  So why should we not do the same when it comes to voting in our elections?  Only citizens should vote, only people of voting age should vote, voters should only vote personally and not allow others to vote on their behalf, voters should vote only once.  And each vote needs to be confirmed as coming from an eligible voter.  Why is this so hard to understand?  Because ensuring these things to minimize fraud is harmful to the Democrat party.  Simple.  They can't say this, so they speak in terms of imaginary "voter suppression."

(04/08/2021) This Joe Biden ‘Lesson’ for Leftists Is So Bad, I Hope It Goes Viral.  The lesson that Joe has taught is that it is a positive good to lie, cheat and steal your way into power.  If you are a Leftie. I'm not sure going viral would be a good thing because most on the Left agree 100%

(04/08/2021) The Dumbing Down of America: Lawyer Edition.  In this case it is making bar exams easier so more "people of color" can pass.  So, people of color will be sent the message that they need not work as hard in school, and people in general will be sent the message that a lawyer of color is likely to be substandard.  And Democrats and the Left apparently think this is a good thing.

(04/08/2021) Joe Biden: ‘No Amendment to the Constitution Is Absolute.’ 

(04/08/2021) Hunter Biden’s Laptop Is Finally In the News.  Well it is safe now.  Even with the fraud, if that had been big news back in October, Trump likely would have won.

(04/07/2021) Best-Selling Devotional Has Prayer to 'Help Me to Hate White People.'  Correct me if I am wrong, but I'd say that isn't biblical.

(04/07/2021) If Democrats Will Cry ‘Racist’ No Matter What, Republicans Should Pass Much Stronger Laws.  True.  The Georgia law is actually pretty weak, though better than nothing. 

(04/06/2021) 2+2=5: Oregon Department of Education Pushes Course Claiming Math is Racist Because It Requires a Correct Answer.  Who is going to benefit from this nonsense?  Certain academics and consultants.  However, the supposed beneficiaries will be greatly harmed.

(04/06/2021) Today’s Theological Heresies on Race and Climate.  It is almost (but not quite) funny how those that attack Christianity have created their own religions, complete with heresies, confessions and more.

(04/06/2021) Poll: Overwhelming Majority Support Voter ID, Disagree with MLB’s Georgia Boycott.  How can this be?  I have been assured by the experts and opinion leaders that this cannot be the case.

(04/06/2021) Appalachian State pairs 'Black Male' housing initiative with 'Black Panther' course.  That is, a residence hall for black males.  Can this possibly be good?  Can race relations ever be healed when white racism (which is vastly reduced) is repeatedly exaggerated and condemned while black racism is repeatedly justified and encouraged?  I'll settle for saying that one political party sees it in their best interests to make race relations as poor as possible, to the great detriment on our country.  Which party might that be?

(04/06/2021) Shapes of Things (29).  This focuses on the fact that to question the integrity of the 2020 election has been deemed "misinformation" and is actively being censored.  There is a lot of evidence of fraud, but apparently you are "spreading lies" if you say so.  With the wholesale abandonment of truth, facts and reality, we are slipping into extremely dangerous times.

(04/06/2021) 'Maybe' conservatism is a 'euphemism for white supremacy,’ Syracuse prof states during 'White Rage' panel.  All I can say is the the "Love Trumps Hate" crowd is working very hard to teach people (their guys) to hate. It isn't just wrong or sad, it is dangerous.  The Left loves to claim that Trump's rhetoric causes violence, but the rhetoric coming from many on the Left is an explicit call to hate, and in many cases, an explicit call to violence.  But apparently that is okay for them, because they claim to hate hate.

(04/05/2021) 3 Major Scientific Discoveries In The Past Century That Point To God.  It is actually pretty remarkable the degree that many go to to deny the evidence of a designer / creator.  Don' t believe your lying eyes, and if you don't like my explanation, I have others.

(04/05/2021) Border Crisis: New Tent Facility and 19 New ‘Processing Coordinators’ In Texas.  The border situation got better much under Trump, now it is getting massively worse.  But somehow it is Trump that has caused our current crisis that the administration and media assures us is not a crisis.  Nothing good can result when we have a media that peddles fake news and the Democrat party line at the expense of truth, justice and the American way.

(04/04/2021) ‘This is a heresy’: Sen. Raphael Warnock – a reverend – reinterprets the meaning of Easter.  So we have a Reverend and a pastor who definitely does not even qualify as a Christian - by helping others we are saved.  Who knew?  

(04/03/2021) ‘Pure political advocacy’: CBS News should just change their name to DNCBS Propaganda and get it over with.  To be fair, they have been doing this for a long time.  It's just that they used to be less blatant.

(04/03/2021) Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe Says US Capitol Attack by Black Muslim is “One of the Results” of January 6th.  In other words, the Left is never, never responsible for any of the awful things they do.  The Right is responsible for everything bad, the Left for everything good.  It is going to be very difficult to find counter examples in the MSM.

(04/03/2021)  Dr. Fauci praises himself for COVID-19 vaccines: 'May have been the best decision that I've ever made.'  Just because Fauci lies doesn't mean the MSM has to go along with it.  Oh, silly me.  Of course they do.  It supports the narrative of giving no credit to Trump for anything, and stealing that credit for themselves.  The abandonment of truth, facts and reality in favor of the progressive narrative by our "opinion leaders" is doing serious damage to America.

(04/03/2021) Cincinnati professor who called COVID-19 ‘the Chinese virus’ loses job.  It is sickening how much damage the perpetually offended are doing to people's lives.

(04/02/2021) Marco Rubio's Easter Week Bible Verse Triggers the Woke Mob.  What is their gripe?  Rubio can't me a man of  God because he doesn't support the left-wing agenda!  Answer me this: who is worshiping the creature and who is worshiping the Creator?  We certainly are deeply in Romans 1 times.

(04/02/2021) Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to Arizona Senate – You Cannot Do Your Audit Here at the Tabulation Center – Where Do You Want the Ballots Delivered?  Why would honest people not want a fair and transparent audit that would surely affirm their honesty?  Answer: they would want such an audit.  Conclusion - Maricopa country engaged in election hanky-panky, possibly enough to overturn the official election results. 

(04/02/2021) Teacher Bullies Student For Taking Colorblind Approach To Classroom Assignment.  There was a time when we were taught not to judge people based on color.  That was a good thing and it was pretty successful.  Now some (many?) schools are teaching the exactly opposite.  And they are teaching lies.  I pray that they are not successful.

(04/02/2021) Associated Press Tells Reporters to Avoid Using “Crisis” and “Invasion” to Describe Border Crisis.  Can anyone make the case that the MSM is not trying to manipulate public thinking and attitudes by means of lying, deceit, misrepresentation, and more?  These are all Satan's tools, and the are eagerly making use of them.
