Prayer, Respect, and Honour for the President This article is not going to be about political advocacy for Hillary Clinton or President Donald Trump, or for the Republican or Democratic party. I have a more important message. For that, I want us to focus on 1 Timothy 2:1-4: First of all, then, I urge that supplications, […]Read More Republicans & Democrats: Love One Another, Pray for One Another, Pray for the President
As today celebrates the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, I thought it fitting to talk about him and that legacy. I would be shocked to find someone in America who did not know who this great man was, let alone what his legacy is. I would expect to hear at least the initials […]Read More The Legacy of the Rev. Dr. King
Lately, it seems as if there’s a Cold War between liberals and conservatives. On the one hand, liberals claim the earth’s global climate is changing so drastically that if we don’t do something about it, it’s going to wipe out all life on earth and mankind is to blame because how we treat the earth […]Read More What Should Christians Think on Climate Change?

On the issue of abortion, the pro-life side argues the child has the “right” to life, whereas the pro-choice side argues the mother has the “right” to choice. Yet […]Read More Pro-Life: Our Duty to Mothers and the Unborn
Before I start, let me first make it irrevocably clear that the point of this article is not to push forward any political agenda. I am not going to be using Scripture to support the Republican side for gun rights or the Democrat side for no gun rights. (Full disclosure: I support Americans’ 2nd Amendment […]Read More Does Jesus Advocate Gun Rights?
As a future pastor, I am entering a dark mission field. America is being dominated by liberal dogma that preaches sacred autonomy. With abortion, the left thinks they get to decide whether or not an infant is a human being which apparently gives them the “right” to kill it. They have replaced infanticide with the synonym pro-choice, […]Read More What Can I Do?
