What a difference six months makes. Or perhaps the difference is what happens when you’re no longer running for the U.S. Senate against Ted Cruz.
  • Last Friday, in Christchurch, New Zealand, one of the more civilized places on earth, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, turned on his cellphone camera and set out to livestream his massacre of as many innocent Muslim worshippers as he could kill.
  • The SPLC designates itself
  • “Would you buy a car without test-driving it?”
  • DUNCAN/‘The Book of Esau’
    Please turn to Genesis 36:1-43. After reading this passage, you may be asking the question, “Why would God have Moses write down that long list of Esau's genealogy?” However, a closer look at this chapter reveals it to be surprisingly rich in teaching and significance. This passage can easily be divided into three sections. First, in verses 1-8, Moses reminds us of the distinction between Esau and Jacob and of their brotherhood. Then, in verses 9-30 and 40-43, we read a long documentation of the proliferation of Esau's descendants. We also see God’s fulfillment of His promises to Esau. Finally, in verses 31-39, God challenges Jacob's trust, and He warns us against compromise. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 1: 15-20
    This passage is about the pre-eminence of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Christ Jesus was appointed by God to be the great prophet and teacher of the church. He is the light of the world. He reveals God to us. Paul says, “He is the image of the invisible God (verse 15).” If we would learn of God, we must learn of Christ. There is a natural ignorance of God in men, due to sin. 
  • In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College.
  • Sometimes the defeated deserve pity, but sometimes only retaliation satisfies. The Democrats have no use for the venerable adage that “politics is the art of persuasion,” preferring the stone-cold counsel of Niccolo Machiavelli: “Politics have no relations to morals.” Determined to reach for every bad thing in their determination to recapture the White House, they set out to prove Machiavelli right
  • The same Democrats outraged by Donald Trump’s alleged offenses against the First Amendment passed, as their first priority, a speech-restricting bill opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
  • DUNCAN/From Jacob to Israel
    Please turn to Genesis 35:1-29. This passage speaks of God's grace towards Jacob. But it is also a passage filled with great sorrow for him. In verse 8, we learn of Deborah's death. She was the maid to Rebekah, a beloved member of the famil
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 1:9
    In this verse we gain insight into how the Apostle Paul prayed for Christians, the great desires he had for believers in Christ. No doubt Paul wrestled in prayer for the practical needs of Christians, but his priority was their spiritually seeking after God, because in whatever condition he is in, if a Christian grows in his knowledge and love of God, he is doing well.
