Members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet are gathering for prayer weekly. Vice President Mike Pence and eight cabinet secretaries sponsor the sessions, which occur weekly in Washington.
It’s led by the founder of Capitol Ministries, Ralph Drollinger, who started working on arranging the Bible study during the Trump team’s transition to the White House.
Sponsors include Vice President Pence; Secretaries Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue, Rick Perry, Tom Price Continue reading
Can you imagine a world in which you would never lose your car keys or wallet? Or have them stolen?
Can you imagine a world in which you would never have to stand in line at the grocery store? Or the airline ticket counter? Or TSA?
Can you imagine Continue reading
A few months ago, “experts” predicted the North Koreans were four years away from building an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) capable of striking the U.S. mainland.
On July 4, North Korea tested an ICBM that could reach Alaska or Hawaii, but not the mainland USA.
There was some concern among the national security experts, but not alarm. After all, it was only Alaska and Hawaii. And maybe Seattle and Portland. Continue reading
Christianity is different from other world religions. Most of them can survive their sacred texts being found to contain conflicting details. What’s most important to them are the broad generalities they teach, not the particulars of their founders’ lives. But Christianity holds itself to such a high standard — 100% accuracy (a standard established by God Himself) — that the details of the life and death of Jesus Christ are Continue reading
[Some] folks are beginning to notice that Pope Francis seems to have a lot of them. Some of which don’t seem to agree with the Bible or the historical teachings of the Roman Catholic church.
Writing for the British newspaper, The Independent, Samuel Osborne observed,
“During his four years in Continue reading
Our nation exists today because her founders recognized their dependence on God and acknowledged it in the foundation and framework of this magnificent house we call the United States of America. We dismiss that recognition at our peril.
The United States of America is the world’s only superpower. Its economy Continue reading
Canada recently enacted a piece of legislation called Bill 89. Its net effect is that the Canadian government will be empowered to remove children from the homes of parents who do not agree that their small child may be “transgender.” As if a small child even know[s] what “gender” means, much less can identify his or her own internal gender fluidity! Folks, this is theater of the absurd — Continue reading
We are a forgetful people. In the heat of an argument, we forget a friend’s kindness and focus on their faults. When the devastation of a financial loss occurs, we forget God’s previous provision. Worry crowds out trust because they cannot co-exist. The way to shrink our worry is to meditate on God’s character and truth.
What we allow our minds to ruminate on affects our thoughts, actions, and emotions. Continue reading
This week, President Trump made his first overseas trip as President. He began by visiting Saudi Arabia and addressing a meeting of more than 50 Arab heads of state and leaders.
He then moved on to Israel, where he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He later visited with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
President Trump also did something no other sitting U.S. President has done. He visited the Continue reading
Mr. Obama told the President-elect that his most pressing foreign policy problem would be North Korea.
Unfortunately for President Trump, if that is true, it’s true because U.S. Presidents have been kicking this can down the road for decades. Every President in recent years has chosen to simply contain the North Korean regime and placate it by sending humanitarian assistance in return for empty promises to make nice.
In the Continue reading
As we approach Resurrection Day of 2017, I believe our world is facing greater dangers than any time in recent memory.
On the one hand, our new, besieged President deals with the threat of imminent nuclear war in Asia. On the other, he faces the prospect of conflict with Russia and Iran (which also could easily go nuclear). According to the Bible prophets, those two powers will one day lead Continue reading
The one thing that may trump the rise of European national pride (no pun intended) is the emergence of a serious common enemy. Putin’s Russia just may fill the bill.
Russia’s increasingly aggressive behavior within its sphere of influence has alarmed many European leaders. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and theft of Crimea, his harassment of NATO and European military ships and planes, his placement of nuclear-tipped missiles in Kaliningrad, and Continue reading
