A couple of months ago we all watched the news with amusement as reports of a virus in a city in China called Wuhan first surfaced. It was half a world away, and while it might be wreaking havoc there, we were safe. How wrong we were. The invisible (to the naked eye) virus has

What had happened is this: A man came on the university campus where she attended, and began shouting at students that their sins are not equal in God’s sight, and that some of their sins would keep them from heaven. She was angry at

Few Christians today would debate the assessment that America is stuck in a moral and spiritual swamp. While politicians and ‘progressives’ market short-sighted solutions to all the world’s problems (which amount to little more than ‘a Band-Aid on a bullet wound’), the cancer of an atheistic, humanistic, materialistic worldview spreads.
