“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3). I have used this text as the launching point for several sermons. It goes right to the heart of what American Christians face in the present godless, anti-religious, especially anti-Christian, climate. It has motivated me to preach boldly the unimpeachable principles of the Bible that I was raised on; that have been the foundation of our nation, the most blessed and prosperous in history. But they are now being removed with increasing rapidity—What will I do? What will you do? What will we do? Continue reading Don’t Remove Ancient Landmarks!
For hundreds of years, Sundays belonged to the Lord, but for a while now they have been owned by the NFL. Thanksgiving has also become a NFL holiday. Many today have no idea of or inclination toward the spiritual significance of this religious holiday. It deserves a look back. Continue reading Who Do You Thank On Thanksgiving?
“To burn or not to burn?”
The question asked by countless Americans over the past hundred years, addressed by State legislatures enacting laws to protect the flag from desecration such as burning, the U.S. Congress who approved the Federal Flag Desecration Law in 1968 to protect it from this and other acts of contempt, and ultimately answered by the Supreme Court of the United States in June 1990.

“… Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8
These words of Jesus tell us two things: He is coming again, and it will be a time when Christianity is in decline: “Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies and hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (1Timothy 4:1-20).

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).
On Friday, June 26, 2015, the final stone in the foundation of marriage in America was removed by the Supreme Court. This is not about equality for all people. This is the redefining of marriage, which authority is not governed by human law. The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. Marriage is not an institution created by man. Marriage was God’s idea. He created the blueprint for marriage, and He is on record that it is between “one man and one woman.” When He created woman from man, He personally brought her to the man. God never brings a man to a man or a woman to a woman. He said:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). At the time, Adam didn’t have a mother or father, so why did God say this? He was laying as a foundation for all time the governing principle: Marriage is between a husband and wife.
