You are good and do good;
Teach me Your statutes.
~Psalm 119:68

I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord,
the praises of the Lord, According to all that the Lord has granted us,
And the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which He has granted them according to His compassion
And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
~ Isaiah 63:7

O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!… Continue Reading

Written by Laurie Higgins

In addition to the many sound policy decisions President Trump has made, one of the most important things to emerge from his election is the exposure of the breadth and depth of the hypocrisy of Democrats. Recently that hypocrisy has been revealed in the way Democrats have responded to sexual abuse allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

While foaming at the mouth about allegations that Brett Kavanaugh had forcibly laid atop Christine Blasey Ford somewhere, sometime when they were teenagers, Democratic women like Mazie Hirono, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren have been struck mealy-mouthed when responding to claims that Joe Biden forcibly digitally penetrated a 29-year-old staffer when he was 51 years old.… Continue Reading

Former Arizona Senator and Republican Jeff Flake has publicly committed to voting for befuddled Biden, despite both Biden’s demonstrable dementia and credible claims by long-time Democrat Tara Reade that when Joe Biden was a 51-year-old U.S. Senator and she was a 29-year-old staffer, he forcibly put his hand up her skirt, into her underpants, and digitally penetrated her. According to the Washington Post, Flake made the odd claim that “Never has a party so quickly abandoned its principles as [the Republican Party] did in the campaign of 2016.”… Continue Reading

According to Dr. Michael L. Brown, whether you realize it or not, war is raging in our nation. This war is not with a flesh and blood opponent, but rather with what he terms the “spirit of Jezebel” – demonic forces that are at work in individuals today, just as those same spirits were at work in individuals in biblical times. In his address to attendees of IFI’s 2020 Worldview Conference, Dr.… Continue Reading

The effects of COVID-19 reach far beyond the realm of human health. In Spotlight this week Pastor Calvin Lindstrom and I consider Americans’ right of religious liberty vs. submission to governmental authorities, especially in light of restrictions on “non-essential,” in-person worship services and church gatherings. Should Christians be governed by Hebrews 10:25 or Romans 13 and what is a proper, biblical response to government overreach?

After the break the conversation turns to pending legislation, specifically SB 2762 which would require comprehensive sex ed starting in kindergarten (with NO parental opt-out) and SB 3788 which, among other things, deletes teaching honor and respect for monogamous, heterosexual marriage.… Continue Reading

Former president Barack Obama just endorsed Joe Biden in a belated, windy, narcissistic, deceitful, and platitudinous 12-minute video that should be titled “Audacious Obama’s Ironic Endorsement of Befuddled Biden.” Amid his accolades for Bernie Sanders and his admission that Biden will govern even further to the left than he did, Audacious Obama said this…
