THE DANGERS OF NORMALCY BIAS

I’m outside enjoying the unusually green July grass, birds singing, lush forest, and I’m not in a hurry to do anything while I sip a cup of coffee. It seems almost impossible that something could disturb this peaceful atmosphere. And yes, I want it to last as long as possible.   Even so, as I…

IS FOA POLITICALLY MOTIVATED?

At Forerunners of America, we are focused on warning people about three things:   1) The consequences of ignoring our national purpose of drawing people back to God (Acts 17:26–27) 2) The consequences of God’s people remaining silent on moral issues in our country 3) The consequences of our nation’s rebellion against God’s moral standards…

ARE YOU SLEEPING?

Are You Sleeping

DOES GOD SUPPORT OPEN BORDERS?

The controversy over how to secure our southern border has produced the longest government shutdown in America’s history. Much has been said about the morality of building a wall, its effectiveness, the cost, and whether President Trump is demanding a wall for political gain. However, as this debate rages, I can’t seem to escape this question: How much of the resistance to secure our borders is rooted in an ideological commitment to globalism?…
