Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. – Ronald Reagan

The battle for freedom comes in many forms.

Our current battle consists of a horrible health crisis, not just in America, but worldwide. It has resulted in us being told by federal and state political executives, some national and state medical experts, along with the mass media, that the coronavirus threat is so huge that the state governments must be allowed to mandate that we shut down much of life as we know it.

The Chip and the Mark: ID2020 Global Vaccine and Digital ID

The Chip and the Mark: ID2020 Global Vaccine and Digital ID

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

There’s a lot of talk right now about Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates and his ID2020 proposal to vaccinate and provide a digital ID that will track everybody across the world. For those people who are always on the hunt looking at what technology may eventually turn into Revelation 13’s the Mark of the Beast, they’re now exploring ID2020 as a potential candidate.

Homosexuality Can Be More Than A Sin

Homosexuality Can Be More Than A Sin

[Note: For further details about what the Bible has to teach concerning homosexuality,
check out my other article, Homosexuality: Are Christians Homophobic]

Addressing the Title

By Dr. David R. Reagan

Before I explain the title of this article, I must first do something that would have been unthinkable 20 years ago: I must prove that homosexuality is a sin. That’s how far and fast the center of Christianity has shifted toward a gross degree of apostasy that previously was considered impossible.

Proving homosexuality is a sin is simple. It is condemned as such in both the Old Testament (Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13) and the New Testament (Romans 1:26-271 Corinthians 6:9-11 & 1 Timothy 1:8-11). Read these verses for yourself. They are perfectly clear in their condemnation of homosexuality as a sexual perversion that constitutes a sin against God.

Twisting Scripture

The only way to get around these verses is to play games with them by spiritualizing them to mean something other than what they say. Depraved minds can do that, and so it is done all the time. There are even homosexual churches masquerading as Christian churches that Read More

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Let’s get one thing clear right up front: God is sovereign, and that means the current coronavirus was let loose with His permission. Satan may have been the agent, but it would be unbiblical to blame it on Satan. The Bible never blames Satan for natural disasters.

So, what is God doing What is He trying to say to us I believe He is warning us of impending judgment, and therefore He is calling the world to repentance. The Bible teaches that God never pours out His wrath without warning because He does not wish that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and salvation (2 Peter 3:9).

A Biblical Perspective on Dealing with the Coronavirus Crisis

A Biblical Perspective on Dealing with the Coronavirus Crisis

David Reagan | Lamb and Lion Ministries

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) is considered to have been one of the greatest defenders of the Christian faith during the 20th Century. For those of you who may not be familiar with him, he was born in Northern Ireland and became a professor of Medieval English Literature, first at Oxford University (1925-1954), and later at Cambridge University (1954-1963).

He committed his life to Christ when he was 32 years old, and he proceeded to write many insightful and inspiring books about Christianity. These included some that have become Christian classics, like The Problem of Pain (1940), The Screwtape Letters (1942), The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956), and Mere Christianity (1952). Read More


Christian Security in the Face of Viral Fear

Christian Security in the Face of Viral Fear

The world is currently grappling with a threat that has long been discussed and dreaded—the outbreak of a disease that has the potential to become a global pandemic.

Long-Dreaded Threat

The world is currently grappling with a threat that has long been discussed and dreaded—the outbreak of a disease that has the potential to become a global pandemic.

Widespread epidemics have occurred throughout human history. The Old Testament recorded an outbreak of disease as one of the ten plagues that befell Egypt—both on livestock and on people (Genesis 9). The Philistines experienced an eruption of loathsome sores when they captured the Ark of the Covenant from Israel (1 Samuel 5-6). And Israel itself was inflicted as a punishment for King David’s sinful census (2 Samuel 24). Only when he offered a sacrifice did the Lord relent. Read More


The Immorality of Socialism

The Immorality of Socialism

By Dr. David Reagan | Lamb and Lion Ministries

The Rise and Fall of Socialism in America

The Socialist Party of America was founded in 1901. It received support from trade unionists, progressive social reformers, populist farmers, and various immigrant groups. But it never did well at the polls, particularly in presidential elections. And its staunch opposition to American involvement in World War I resulted in a large number of defections. Read More


The Divinity of Jesus: Myth or Reality?

The Divinity of Jesus: Myth or Reality?

 

 

[Read Full Edition of  Insights (pdf)]

God became man. That is the central fact of history. It is mind-boggling to conceive a God who would love us that much; but He did, and He continues to do so. Your response to that fact will determine your eternal destiny.

By Dr. David R. Reagan | Lamb and Lion Ministries

The divinity of Jesus is the central truth of the Bible. It is so fundamental that Christianity stands or falls on it. If Jesus was not God in the flesh, then His sacrifice for our sins was meaningless, and we have no hope.

Satan is determined to convince Mankind that Jesus was someone other than God in the flesh. In Jesus’ own time, Satan created doubt as to His true identity.

A few recognized Him as “the Prophet” or the Messiah who had been prophesied by Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15-18 and John 6:14). But most were ambivalent about His identity. Some believed He was simply a “good man” (John 7:12). Others believed He was a reincarnation of John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah, or “one of the prophets” (Matthew 16:14). Some claimed He was an illegitimate child “born of fornication” ( Read More


Is God Only a God of Love?

Is God Only a God of Love?

Let's consider the concept of the wrath of God. The reason we need to do that is because I have discovered that most Christians, if not most pastors, do not believe in the wrath of God.

If any mention is made of God's wrath, there is usually an immediate and vehement response that God is a God of love, grace and mercy. And if you point to the wrath of God in the Hebrew Scriptures, as, for example, when He destroyed the world with the Noahic Flood, the response usually is, "But that was the God of the Old Testament. The God of the New Testament is a God of grace, mercy and love."
