No One Is Righteous


Romans 3:19-28

Many people think that by trying to live a good life, they are guaranteed a ticket to heaven. They may say things like, “I’m a good person; I don’t steal, lie, cheat, or commit adultery, as other people do. I’ve never been to prison, and I always work hard and contribute to society. So why shouldn’t I deserve to go to heaven?” Notice that the focus is on “what I do.”

This is actually a false idea used by the enemy as a way to deceive people. The truth is that God does not accept anyone based upon works, and the reason is simple: Salvation doesn’t depend on anything we can achieve. Nothing you or I do can earn it. We are saved solely on the basis of what Jesus accomplished when He died in our place to set us free from the power of sin and death…

Christmas ISN’T about the Baby Jesus, It’s About the Cross


Christmas means many things to many people and sadly, to many people, it’s just a holiday for gifts, food, fun and day off of work.

Drive around several neighborhoods and look at the displays in many yards. They have Santa Claus and sleigh, snowmen, Disney characters and even polar bears and penguins. Some people have displays of Grinch, made famous by a socialist who wrote books to subtly indoctrinate kids with socialist ideologies.

There are many nativities portraying the baby Jesus lying in the manger, but so often there are so many secular displays alongside that it destroys the message of the nativity. I have a neighbor who use to display one of those fan driven nativities, but now there is a display of snowmen instead.

For many Christians, Christmas holds pretty much the same meaning as millions of secular non-Christians.

Over the years, I’ve had occasion to ask Christians…

Every Moment, Every Day

Time is short. 1 Corinthians 7:29

Two Washington, D.C., residents quit their jobs to bicycle around the world. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan described their adventures on their blog, “Simply Cycling,” explaining, “Because life is short and the world is big…we want to make the most out of our youth and good health before they’re gone.” Tragically they were killed by ISIS terrorists while bicycling in Tajikistan. They were 29.

We know time is short, but we don’t always know how short it is. The writer of Psalm 89:47 says, “Remember how short my time is.” For those who know Jesus as Savior, our lifespans are as long as eternity; Jesus has given us eternal life. But we have a brief allocation of time on earth, and we don’t have a certain promise of even another day.

Let’s make the most of the moments God gives…

Federal Precedence Over The States


by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

A little review of the 14th Amendment shows us that it accomplished certain ends consistent with Yankee/Marxist revolutionary aims for both the War of Northern Aggression and for the period after that revolution.  We ought to get used to referring to it as a revolution for, in truth, it was the first American Revolution.

It was a revolution in which God-given liberties  were exchanged for “privileges and immunities” granted by an all-powerful federal government in Washington.  After the shooting phase of that revolution was over the United States played the part of Esau on a national scale. We traded our God-given birthright for a mess of federal pottage, and now we weep, as did Esau, because we do not have God’s blessing. In fact, if you read Patrick Henry, a case might be made that we did the…

Door Knock Gun Control: New Jersey Gun Confiscation Begins | Flopping Aces

Starvin Larry

President Obama and President Trump were both right, Obama when he told us elections have consequences and Trump in his 2018 stump speech that a consequence of Democrat victories would be renewed attacks on the Second Amendment. New Jersey’s ban on high capacity magazines has been upheld by a federal court, opening the door to door knock gun confiscation and making off-duty police officers subject to criminal prosecution. The inmates are officially running the asylum.

Reason #64 to Always Carry A Gun

Prepper 365

OK, so I haven’t actually given you 64 reasons to carry a gun, but you probably get the idea, besides, I just really liked the title. So, today we ventured out to feed my mother-in-law’s cat as she’s out of town visiting family for the holidays, but when we arrived at her house something was amiss. I had chosen to stay in the car while my wife went in to feed the lonely kitty, I was contently listening to the radio when I noticed her motioning me to come to the porch and mouthing the words ‘I need you.’ I didn’t think much of it as I slogged across the muddy driveway in the rain, but as soon as I got to the porch I saw it, the door appeared damaged and loose. We had been the victims of several break-ins when we lived in the Chicago area, so seeing…

One Happy Morning


For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour. (Luke 2:11)

When we sing, “The Light of the world is Jesus,” there should be a glow on our faces that would make the world believe indeed that we really mean it!

The Incarnation meant something vast and beautiful for John Milton—and he celebrated the coming of Jesus into the world with one of the most beautiful and moving expressions ever written by a man:

This is the month, and this the happy morn,

Wherein the Son of Heaven’s eternal King,

Of wedded maid, and Virgin mother born,

Our great redemption from above did bring.

That glorious form, that Light insufferable,

And that far-beaming blaze of majesty,

He laid aside, and here with us to be,

Forsook the courts of everlasting Day,

And chose with us a darksome house of mortal clay.

Oh! run; prevent them…

VIDEO Born This Happy Morning – The Supreme Revelation


Born This Happy Morning

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being…. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. Hebrews 1:3, NIV

Today we celebrate God entering the human family. This is the marvel of history—Jesus is both God and man! As God, He said, “I and My Father are one.” As man, He said, “My Father is greater than I” (John 10:30; 14:28).

Because Jesus is God, John wrote, “The Word was God.” Because He was man, John wrote, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1 and 1:14).

As God, Jesus is “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Yet He is also “a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” (Revelation 19:16; Isaiah 53:3).

As God, our Lord’s “goings forth are from of old, from…

May You Know Joy, by Robert Gore


Summa Theologica

Most of us have done something terribly wrong to another person. We realized it at the time or afterwards. For those with an intact conscience, there was overwhelming shame and a burning, seemingly inextinguishable guilt. Perhaps there was an admission, maybe to the victim, from whom forgiveness was asked. Perhaps there was only self-confession. If the shame overwhelmed and the guilt burned deeply, there may have been a redemptive pledge not to commit the same transgression and to improve a deficient character.

No one caught in throes of such a wrenching experience would characterize his emotional state as happiness. Indeed, depending on the transgression and the emotional reaction, happiness might have seemed forever out of reach.

If a tormented conscience makes one miserable, doesn’t that suggest that a clean conscience is necessary for more salutary emotions? Conscience is often thought of as an internal control system, allowing us to…

VIDEO The Hopes and Fears – Broadway Presentation


The Hopes and Fears

Grant us that we… might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life. Luke 1:74-75

When Phillips Brooks wrote the carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” he coined a phrase that sums up our emotions about Christmas: “The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.” It’s too beautiful a line to alter, but let’s remember that the hope of Jesus overcame the fears of all the years. Because of Jesus we can release our fears, anxieties, apprehensions, and nervous sorrows.

When you read through Luke’s Gospel, beginning with the Nativity, you keep running into the phrase, “Do not be afraid.” The angel said that to Zacharias in Luke 1:13, to Mary in Luke 1:30, and to the shepherds in Luke 2:10. Jesus later told Simon Peter in Luke 5:10: “Do not be afraid.”…
