Tribute to an Unsung Hero

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.” ― General George S. Patton An often cited issue today is the lack of strong male figures in the lives of young boys and girls, serving as the root cause to a myriad of problems affecting society as a whole. While this is certainly true, sometimes we wait for legendary heroes to emerge who will set the example that will bring order to the chaos. We look for a new Julius Caesar to cross the Rubicon or a George Washington to…

American Christian Resistance to English Tyranny

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation”[1] Romans 13:1-2 As American colonists found themselves increasingly at odds with their English King and his Parliament in the years leading to the Revolutionary War, they found themselves needing to justify their actions within the framework of their Christian faith. New Testament scripture, as noted in Romans above and also 1 Peter 2, calls for believers…

A Return to Aristocracy

In reading historians of aristocratic ages, those of antiquity in particular, it would seem that in order to be master of his fate and to govern his fellows a man need only be master of himself. Perusing the histories written nowadays, one would suppose that man had no power, neither over himself nor over his surroundings. Classical historians taught how to command; those of our own time teach next to nothing but how to obey. Alexis de Tocqueville In his second volume of Democracy in America, French diplomat and writer Alexis de Tocqueville touches briefly on key differences in historical…

The Revolution Already Happened Without You

A Revolution took place this past year, finalized with the swearing in of the 46th President of the United States on January 20th, 2021. It was not the Revolution that you think it was or the revolution you had hoped it would be. Many had thought that the revolution was Trump himself, saving America from the global establishment that threatens liberty across the globe. In reality, Trump was the last of the old world, a desperate counterpunch from a cornered idea of freedom in an attempt to hold off a Revolution that has been decades in the making. That Revolution…

Barbarians at the Gates

Yesterday in Washington D.C., as Congress convened to certify the Electoral College vote for President of the United States, supporters of President Donald Trump held a rally to protest what many have seen as a fraudulent and stolen election. Following a speech by the President himself thousands of Americans marched to the Capitol building. Through the course of events, a number of supporters broke through lax security and made their way into the Capitol building itself, forcing Congress and Vice President Pence into lockdown and delaying the certification until early this morning. It was an ugly scene, with one female…

War Games

Outgoing (?) U.S. President Donald Trump has recently announced his intention to withdraw most American military forces from Iraq and Afghanistan, with an aim to end two wars that have lasted almost twenty years each, cost the United States trillions of dollars, and have led to the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives. Immediately, most of our political leaders from both parties began to screech loudly in protest, likely at the behest of the defense contractors who write their campaign checks. Tell me again the Deep State isn’t real as the anti-war crowd is now pro-war because fighting Muslim…

Christmas is Coming!

And so are more lockdowns. As we speak, the United States is following the rest of the world in implementing massive COVID related lockdowns as case numbers spike, even though the number of deaths remains steady. In some states, Thanksgiving is on the chopping block, and Christmas could soon follow. Most of us already missed out on celebrating Easter in the spring as we were in the early months of the Corona virus. Several months later and its looking highly likely that it will be strongly suggested that you celebrate Christ’s birth from the comfort of your living room. I…

Election Fallout & The Fight for Religious Freedom

This past Saturday it was officially announced by the news media that after several confusing days of chaos, former Vice President Joe Biden had enough electoral college votes to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election. This occurred despite the Trump campaign’s insistence of voter fraud in multiple states and an intent to challenge the outcome in the court of law. The results of this effort remain to be seen, but Trump supporters fall into one of two categories: those who have conceded defeat and those who have vowed to fight. Within Christianity, the usual proclamations of “God’s sovereignty” or…

Hope & Expectations

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:17 Last night during a weekly men’s Bible study group, we were discussing the word “hope” as found in Colossians 1:27, which ends with the statement “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” The Apostle Paul, who wrote this letter while in prison, explains to the Church at Colossae how the mystery of the word of God has finally been revealed to all through Jesus. The Greek word used for “word” is…
