Standing Strong in a Dark World November 14, 2007

Chuck Colsons words are crucial for our Culture. I like when he points
out that John Calvin said that when the Church is really the Church
is when it is preaching the gospel, administrating the sacraments and
implementing discipline, only then is when the church is influential and
doing its work. How true it is when he says the Church shouldn’t be
into Therapy, the church should not be involved in “self” but rather
the culture. Don’t go to church to make you feel good! Go to church
because you want to worship God.

It puzzles me that sociologists are not understanding that only the Gospel will fix the culture and a turn to morality. I ask this question, is it truly poverty that has grown the prison population from just over 200,000 in the 70’s to over 2 million when the American economy has never been more healthy and rich? I believe it is the decline in morality and the acceleration of selfish America.

Have a listen to Chuck Colson’s speech on Focus on the Family.

Is Hollywood dying? Let’s hope so November 9, 2007

Hallelujah! Christmas has come early.
There’s a strike in Hollywood. The mighty pens that script Hollywood’s cacophony of trash have run dry because the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers are at a contractual deadlock. They say it’s about money. About justice.

Pat Robertson’s sell-out – by Joseph Farah November 8, 2007

Why did Pat Robertson “sell out” and endorse Rudy Guiliani, “a lifelong pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-gun, self-described ‘liberal’ for the Republican nomination”? Farah also criticizes Robertson for selling his Family Channel to Rupert Murdoch, who “is, arguably, the world’s most well-known and successful pornographer” in 1997.

JK Rowling and her Harry Potter books teaching Children of Gay Lifestyles October 23, 2007

The Gay Activists are turning their sites in the culture war on our Children by using the popular Harry Potter books as a tool. JK Rawlings has joined the activists by revealing that Dumbledore, Harry Potter’s late headmaster, was in love with a man. Our children are not safe from our sex obsessed culture. It is time that as Christians we find alternative media not only in the news but also in what our children watch and read.

“Mom and Dad” as well as “husband and wife” have been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose.

“We are shocked and appalled that the governor has blatantly attacked tr

Even though she claims to hate Him – Jesus that is – these Hollywood types still can’t make it without Him. Because let’s face it, folks, without that blasphemous outburst, you’d never have heard of Kathy Griffin.

Should Christianity, politics mix? August 30, 2007

We are engaged in a war that is not only defining our times, it is determining our destiny. I’m not talking about the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, or even the broader war on terror – those are offshoots of the real war. I’m talking about the culture war. The culture war is a struggle between secular socialism and free market traditionalism, and the outcome of this struggle will ultimately determine whether or not the jihadists will pick up the pieces to convert America and Canada into a North American caliphate. Given what is at stake, I must say the traditionalist side has me worried. Part of the problem is that some traditionalists are so consumed with “end times” theorizing, they’ve virtually given up on politics. The sentiment is that “it is only going to get worse – so why bother.” Of course, that doesn’t stop them from investing into their retirement funds. However, there is a far more fatal reason for the failure of traditionalists to exercise cultural leadership today and win the culture war, and it has to do with the “emergent church”. It seems some pastors, in that church movement, are fed up with Christians engaging the political arena as though it were their divine right. These pastors claim it is “un-Christian to be political.” It may be a “civil right”, they say, but since when did Jesus care about “civil rights”? Rev. Greg Boyd, a pastor in Minnesota, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in the recent miniseries “God’s Warriors” that equating the kingdom of heaven with “the politics of the world” is like trying to create an “Islamic state.” He’s not the only pastor with serious reservations about Christians in politics. Rev. Mel White, the former ghostwriter of the late Jerry Falwell’s autobiography and now an ex-Evangelical, is also deeply troubled by Christians in the public square. Speaking to RollingStone Magazine, White said: When most people hear… talk about a “Christian nation” they think, “Well, that sounds like a good, moral thing.” What they don’t know… is that “Christian nation” means something else entirely to these dominionist leaders.White doesn’t reveal what the nature of the dominionist conspiracy is, so I had to do a little investigation of my own. The critics say these people want to turn America and Canada into a radicalized version of Old Testament Israel. According to the website religioustolerance.org, that would mean: A system of just restitution for victims would replace the tax payer funded prison system The death penalty would be practiced for serious capital crimes “Legal” abortions would be banished Income taxes would be eliminated Governments would have balanced budgetsThere were also references to other “nefarious” practices such as: Daily Bible reading Daily prayer for America and Canada Teaching children that morality is absoluteReligioustolerance.org drew its obligatory conclusion from all of this zealotry: If radical Christians control civil government, American and Canadian streets will literally be running with blood – just like in Islamic theocracies.Ah yes, the dreaded T-word. Theocracy. It’s the catchphrase secularists (and now some “emergent church pastors”) love to use to beat back Christian involvement in politics. After all, who wants to live in a “theocracy”? That’s just for those crazy Iranians and Afghans! But in a Judeo-Christian context, the term means something completely different, as evidenced by North America’s political foundations. Theocracy simply means: “God’s rule.” The concept clearly appears in the preamble to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and it is an integral part of virtually all of early American constitutional literature. That’s not to say either country was ever a “theocracy.” But both countries remain good examples of how a Judeo-Christian ethic could and should be applied to the underpinnings of society. Concepts such as justice, liberty and equality under the law were established in North America precisely because there were predominantly Christian communities. Only an imbecile or a blatant secularist – or both – would purposefully choose to ignore the political impact Christians have had on the creation of America and Canada. Neither Boyd nor White elaborated on their misgivings about Christian involvement in politics, but Boyd did insist that he wouldn’t want anyone to have the false impression that Christians actually “want to run a Christian society and enforce Christian law.” Heavens no. Far better to let atheists, agnostics, humanists, socialists, or Marxists rule the West, like they did in the old Soviet Union. Remember the Soviet Union? It lasted what, 70 years? And when it collapsed under the weight of its anti-religious, nihilist, man-centered worldview, it gave way to a situation where some of its tiny satellite states were ripe for Islamists to take control. That’s why I don’t hold out much hope for a victory in the culture war if the current leadership remains in place. When so-called “Christian leaders” are ready to abandon their responsibility, there’s not much hope that North America can withstand the tenacity and conviction of the jihadists waiting on the sidelines – witness what’s happening in Europe. Besides, if the “end times” are here anyway, why not just pick Hillary for president? That should really speed things up. Then again, there are those retirement funds to consider.

Living the Gospel – Defending the truth August 10, 2007

By Chuck Colson

Interview with John Beckett

PF founder Chuck Colson contends that the Biblical worldview is neither arcane nor academic. It’s a concept that is approachable to us all because we all have a way in which we view the world and our place in it.

John Beckett, chairman of the R.W. Beckett Group, conducts this 53-minute interview for the Intercessors for America, a nonprofit organization that encourages prayer for the nation, our leaders and the Church. Beckett calls Colson “a sterling example of a life that has been transformed by the Gospel.”

Colson explores topics including the importance of the Church investing in the culture, the clash between Christianity and Islam, the “sacred responsibility” of parents and grandparents to teach younger generations biblical truth and the necessity of Christians to become students of nonbelievers so they can explain the Christian faith both “intelligently and winsomely.”

I encourage you to take the time to watch this video, or read any of his books to better understand why it is so important for Christians to get involved in public life, media, and culture.
