The Gift of Life

The Gift of Life

Reprinted from LivingRightly.net The prior article focused on justice. Today’s focuses on life, but not the political hype surrounding the issue. Instead it emphasizes why we have the gift of life and its implications by considering who God is and the relationship man is to have with Him, before closing with some points about how modern liberalism corrupts this view.

Liberalism’s Impact on Justice

Liberalism’s Impact on Justice

Reprinted from livingrightly.net This next series extends the conversation begun last time. That article ended with the statement that today’s liberals are betting prosperity can only occur under government direction. Its all about achieving specific ends, ends that must be directed from the top. That is the basis for their false claim the Obama administration’s policies are responsible for this past year’s economic growth. Read More

The Left is Right

The Left is Right

The Left is Right I wasn’t sure if this was the right time for this article. But after the left’s reporting and antics over the last couple of weeks about all that is supposedly wrong, I think we deserve a little reality. Liberals have proudly announced this last years economic growth is due to the Obama administration, and I think they are right, but not for the reasons they claim. Read More

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Introduction:   While, in this day and age, it is difficult to see the United States as a nation under God, it was once commonplace for politicians to consult their Bibles, for children to pray openly in schools, for the Bible to be taught in public schools, and for the court system to reference the Bible for guidance.[1] These times have passed. The 1960s brought rampant change to American society, and years since have struck even heavier blows to our nation’s Christian heritage. Something integral to our nation has been lost, and it must be found again if America is to endure as its founders envisioned. This discourse will primarily focus on the United State’s Christian roots by examining the beliefs and practices of its founding fathers, namely George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, among others. By examining the claims of Thomas Jefferson, in particular, we hope to shed some light on common misconceptions about the meaning of the phrase, “separation of church and state,” and its modern day implications. We will also look at the various ways our nation has fallen from its Christian heritage and how Christians can make a difference. Read More

America Needs Our Christian Faith – Don’t Leave It In The Pews

America Needs Our Christian Faith – Don’t Leave It In The Pews

Mark Landsbaum | BARBWIRE "I love my country.” It was almost jarring to hear those words spoken aloud by a grown man talking to a bunch of other men. In a church no less. But this is what it’s come to, being jarred by hearing such a thing. Why is that News reports tell us that millennials have virtually no sense of patriotism. We just finished eight years of a president who insisted nothing is exceptional about the United States, and traveled the globe apologizing for the U.S.A.’s alleged sins, sucking up to enemies determined to harm us and insulting friends and allies. Suddenly everything that was right had become wrong with our nation. Read More

Here are 8 Freedoms to Thank God for This Independence Day

Here are 8 Freedoms to Thank God for This Independence Day

Guy Hatcher | Crosswalk The Legacy Guy The Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, and announced the separation of the thirteen American colonies from Great Britain. With this, a new nation was formed—the United States of America. History verifies Thomas Jefferson as the composer of the original draft. Once completed, Jefferson submitted his draft to Benjamin Franklin and John Adams for their changes. Eventually, it made its final destination to Congress where it was amended for the last time. Today, we see in its detailed wording why Congress was declaring independence from Great Britain. Read More

The Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell

By Stephen McDowell |  Providence Foundation The Liberty Bell has been used as the logo of the Providence Foundation since near the time of our official founding in 1984. A verse from the Bible, Leviticus 25:10, is engraved on the top of the bell: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof. Lev. XXV, X” The context of this Scripture is the jubilee year of liberty, which according to God’s instruction was to occur every 50 years and was marked by forgiveness of debts, the return of all lands to the original owners, and freedom to enslaved Israelites. Appropriately, this good fruit partially represents the outcome of our mission to spread Christian liberty throughout all the nations. As we teach Biblical principles for all spheres of life, the result will be men and nations who are liberated, blessed, and advancing. Or as Jesus taught, we disciple nations by teaching men to observe all He commanded (Matthew 28:18-20). Read More

USA Celebrates Another Freedom Revolution

USA Celebrates Another Freedom Revolution

John Adams on the vote for independence: It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations..." Kenneth Blackwell Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Townhall on July 2, 2018. Today, America dominates the globe. It’s easy to forget that the United States almost didn’t exist. In 1776, a rag-tag group of British colonists met in Philadelphia. Resistance to British exactions had begun more than a decade before. Armed resistance broke out the previous year. Read More

Virginia’s Irresponsible Budget

Virginia’s Irresponsible Budget

Dan Wolf | Living Rightly On May 30, the Virginia Senate passed a fiscally irresponsible and immoral budget approved earlier by the House of Delegates. Budgeted expenses are projected to grow from their present $51.8 billion in 2018 to $57.0 and $58.9 billion in 2019 and 2020, single year increases of 11% and 14% respectively over present spending levels. A large part of this increase comes from an approximately $3.6 billion per year expansion in Medicaid program spending, with an accompanying false claim of moral compassion to promote the need for same. Some of this program’s expansion is to be financed by a new $600 million tax on the hospitals receiving program expenditures in return for providing Medicaid healthcare services. This article looks closer at the spending increase and compassion claim. Read More

Letter to the Editor not published – immoral agenda of the Democrats

Letter to the Editor not published – immoral agenda of the Democrats

In the article by columnist Marc Thiessen it stated that PA State Rep. Rick Saccone declared that liberals hate America and hate God. The word ‘hate’ is pretty strong but I believe a case can be made that his statement would, in softer words, apply to a minority of American Democrats. President Obama and his wife were certainly not thrilled about America, stating it was no longer a Christian nation. They did their best to down grade and weaken America. Read More
