The Real Story of the First Thanksgiving

The Real Story of the First Thanksgiving

  The American Left has polluted history. They have removed the true history from the history books and replaced it with their own rewrites, usually to protect their worldview from any scrutiny. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the story of the first Thanksgiving. It is sad every year at this time to see people my age remembering Thanksgiving as the day that “white people invaded the Indians’ land, took it away from them, and then killed them all for fun.” In the minds of this generation, white people are intrinsically evil and minorities are put upon for no reason. Indians seem to think that this should be a day of mourning, at least if you ask anyone educated in a government school. But the understanding of the first Thanksgiving has, over the years, proven to be a massive experiment in brainwashing. Too many people “know” the first Thanksgiving as Pilgrims coming to “America”, nearly starving during the first winter, and the Indians saving their lives. In a...

Mitt Romney Isn’t The Answer

Mitt Romney Isn’t The Answer

I’m sitting here on my couch, my kid in bed, my wife out shopping and I find myself wrestling with tonight’s electoral outcome. Mitt Romney has lost. We have four more years of Barack Obama as our president. He will likely have two, maybe three Supreme Court appointments. He will continue his assault on religious liberty. There will be no repeal of Obamacare. We will continue to spend with abandon and drive ourselves into the debt hole. We now get to see what “more flexibility” means with regard to Russia. There will be no justice for the dead in Benghazi. I ponder these things and ask myself, how can that many of my fellow Americans vote for a man who embraces abortion? How can they vote for someone who has no regard for freedom of conscience? Are there really that many people who think that socialism is the right path for America? After tonight, I have to say yes. Sure, there was a chance that Mitt Romney could have...

Scandalous Jesus

Scandalous Jesus

  By Cathy York   A few months ago, I got into a multi-day Twitter conversation-cum-argument with someone who represented himself as an American-born Muslim whose parents were atheists, though both of his grandfathers were ministers of some sort. It started out with me taking issue with a fellow conservative’s assertion that most—if not all—Muslims want to slit our throats, and this Muslim gentleman thanked me for sticking up for his co-religionists who genuinely love our country. I stated to him that, even though I am an evangelical Christian, I am committed to trumpeting the work of patriotic Muslims like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, Dr. Qanta Ahmad, and others. He asked me where I differ with Muslim theology, saying, “We might not be as far apart as you think.” Well, yes, we are pretty far apart when it comes to who we each believe Jesus is. When I stated several times that I believe Jesus is indeed God, he became nearly apoplectic, having the biggest problem with the concept of...

Thoughts About Forgiveness

Thoughts About Forgiveness

I will, upon occasion, read the latest articles on The Gospel Coalition. As an evangelical Christian, I like to keep up with theological trends and conversations. This morning I read an article by Dane Ortlund called “The Psychology of Resentment“, wherein he talks about the response people have to wrongs, and particularly grievous wrongs perpetuated upon ourselves done by others and he details the bitterness we often harbor as a result: So what happens? Where does a gospel-vacuous heart go in such a case? Instead of doing something externally to harm them you do something internally to harm them. You harbor bitterness. This is the psychology of resentment. You exercise emotional punishment toward them internally when actual punishment can’t be exercised externally. You set up a law-court in your heart, since an actual law-court is unfeasible. But here’s what happens. The bitterness you harbor, the emotional punishment you exact in your heart, has precisely the opposite effect, over time, than you think. Bitterness does nothing to the offender, while it...

In, But Not Of – The Must Read, First Read of Hugh Hewitt Books

In, But Not Of – The Must Read, First Read of Hugh Hewitt Books

  I learned early and I learned well: everyone has a worldview, everyone has a set of precepts and presuppositions upon which they speak and act. Discover the worldview of a person, and their actions become completely understandable. Hugh Hewitt, lawyer, radio talk show host, Con Law Prof, former official in the Reagan administration, and writer, has authored 12 books, co-authored at least 3 books, and was at one time Richard Nixon’s ghostwriter. But to really know Hugh Hewitt, read his book In, But Not Of: A Guide to Christian Ambition and the Desire to Influence the World. This small volume is, perhaps unwittingly, a blueprint of Hugh’s precepts and presuppositions. In, But Not Of was initially published in April 2003, but the new, revised edition with Study Guide came into existence in 2012, and is a collaborative effort with Bill Blankschaen, who wrote the study guide. [note: Bill Blankschaen has since joined the ranks of contributors to Right Voice Media] This small, but powerful book is a must read for the young...
