Alienated from the Country We Love

By Timothy Zebell | January 14, 2021 | 0 Comments

“Trump Impeached Again” is blared across the Washington Post in massive block letters. … Once more, our nation finds itself in uncharted territory. This snap impeachment was so rushed that there is not even sufficient time for the Senate to conduct a trial, begging the question of whether a president can complete the impeachment process after he has already left office. … What has become of our country?

INSIGHTS: Getting Traction Between Now and the Election

2020 has been tumultuous because of COVID-19 and the race riots, as well as because of the recent Supreme Court justice nomination and the impending election.

In this edition of INSIGHTS, Dave Warn and Eddie Ruiz help us get traction in our prayers to see a difference in the days ahead leading up to November 3 and beyond!

No Place for God in Major Political Party

No Place for God in Major Political Party

Only those willing to align our national policies with God’s moral laws have any chance of truly succeeding in Washington D.C. We must not forget that the solution to our nation’s troubles is ultimately a spiritual matter. If we seek God’s blessing upon our nation, then we cannot exclude Him from our politics….

Making America Great Again

Making America Great Again

For Christians to sit as spectators in the stands while rooting for President Trump to Make America Great Again is foolishness. Government and legislation are important but can only take a nation so far. How then can the church be used of God to make America great again?

When Does Life Begin

When Does Life Begin?

For a presidential candidate eager to adjudicate moral questions, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has been remarkably reluctant to define the morality of abortion. He told Bob Costa that the questions surrounding when life begins are “almost unknowable questions,” and, “We will never be able to settle those questions in a consensus fashion, scientifically.” However, in an interview on The Breakfast Club, Mayor Pete suggested that the Bible may define life as beginning not at conception but at first breath….

The Challenge of Authenticity

The Challenge of Authenticity

Despite a substantial campaign war chest, a high-profile position, and being the virtual embodiment of woke Democratic ideology, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has withdrawn her 2020 presidential candidacy.

Socialism Exposed

Socialism Exposed

On the heels of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing—an event heralded as a triumph of Capitalism over Socialism—Americans are today divided over whether we’d be better-off as a socialist country.

Mayor Pete and the Dawning of a New Political Era

As a Millennial, Buttigieg appeals to younger voters, being a fresh face in a year when Millennials are poised to become the largest eligible voting bloc. TIME reports, “Many Democrats are hungry for generational change, and the two front runners are more than twice his age.” However, generational change for the sake of change can be a terrifying prospect, and…

Is Voter Fraud a Myth

Is Voter Fraud a Myth?

Controversial races in Florida, Georgia, Arizona, and Mississippi have fueled concerns of possible voter fraud in the 2018 midterm elections. All-the-while, the media continues to assure us that rampant voter fraud is a myth. Is this true?

That’s right — the kings. The leaders. And the way the leaders went, the people mostly followed, at least for a generation.
