A Focus on Brett Kavanaugh
- Culture in Focus -
Does God “Hate” the New York Times?
“There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers” (Prov. 6:16–19). Our politically correct Christian culture tends to shy away from strong words like “hate” and “abomination”…Read More
Our Hope Does Not Rest in the Balance of the Supreme Court
If we are not actively seeking to bring godly understanding and transformation to the hearts and minds of those around us, then it matters very little who is appointed to the Supreme Court. What difference does it make if the Court protects an environment that is conducive to sharing the gospel if God’s people refuse to share that gospel?

Following a now debunked New York Times report in September detailing a new sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh from his college years, Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MN) filed an impeachment resolution pressing the House Judiciary Committee to investigate Justice Kavanaugh.

Moreover, it seems to be growing, as is evidenced by BuzzFeed’s now debunked bombshell report which triggered an avalanche of frenzied analysis and reporting by nearly all major news outlets…Read More
What Did We Learn from Kavanaugh vs. Ford?
Far too often we find ourselves whipped into a national frenzy because of some narrative dominating the news cycle, only to set it aside weeks later and nearly forget about it. Whether it be the separation of families at the border, the opioid epidemic, net neutrality, tensions with North Korea, voter fraud, or any number of other examples, it seems as if there is always some new “national crisis” that demands our full attention, prompting us to forget about the previous emergency. And since one crisis is immediately followed by another, we never seem to stop and process what we should have learned through these nationally shared experiences…Read More
Is Trump Protecting Us from National Judgment? (Part 2)
We now have a president who is actively striving to turn our nation away from sinful practices that invoke God’s judgment. We’ve already considered how President Trump is confronting a culture of lies, endeavoring to stop the shedding of innocent blood, and is providing aid to those who are oppressed, helpless, and poor. However, there are more areas where President Trump—whether he realizes it or not—is working to stave off calamity by resisting the very things that invoke God’s judgment.Read More
Ford’s Fight: When “Your Truth” Is Presented as “the Truth”
Throughout the nation, ordinary people from every walk of life were glued to televisions, radios, and mobile devices, listening in as the Senate Judiciary Committee heard two emotional testimonies on the charge of sexual assault. Christine Blasey Ford was given opportunity to share “her truth.”Read More
Kavanaugh’s Fight: When Idealistic Belief Is Dangerous
