Standing Strong in a Dark World November 14, 2007

Posted by Scott V in Culture War.

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.

Mike Huckabee building momentum in Iowa November 14, 2007

I am behind Mike Huckabee winning the republican nomination and running for President in 08. He is trailing Mitt Romney and sits in second at 21% to Romneys 27%. I think its because Huckabee stands for what average everyday Americans stand for, Faith, Family and Freedom!

Newsletter links persecuted Christians with prayer November 13, 2007

Posted by Scott V in Islam.

When Jordanian Khalid Saad abandoned Islam and became a Christian, his family set out to kill him. But he escaped repeated attempts on his life, held up in prayer by thousands of Christians around the world who learned of his needs through the newsletter of Voice of the Martyrs.
In Saad’s situation, those prayers carried him through an assassination attempt that left 12 bullet holes in his car, several hit-and-run attacks, and an assault by a taxi driver who drove into him, knocked him down, and ran over his arm.
As the battle over the persecution of Christians worldwide rages – estimates are that 200 million Christians around the globe are subject at any time to punishments up to and including death simply for believing – so does the need for information for those who are not yet on the more violent front lines,

TechCrunch Interviews Sen. John McCain on Google, Yahoo & Privacy November 12, 2007

Posted by Scott V in Free Speech, USA Politics.

I can appreciate John McCain’s criticism of both Google and Yahoo on privacy in China. The Internet is supposed to be the tool that will break down not only trade barriers but cultural barriers. It remains the most effective channel to export freedom to countries where this is none. Shame on Google and Yahoo for giving into the Chinese Government on censorship.

Can Atheists be Trusted With Political Power? November 12, 2007

Posted by Scott V in Canada Politics, Political Correctness.
add a comment

Secular Humanists insist that they should be the ones to run Canada – that they are the only people who can manage a tolerant modern society. The reason for this, of course, is because they aren’t religious, or so they say.
Religion is the root of all evil. Actually it’s not. It can’t be, because Humanists don’t believe in evil – at least they say

The shift from traditional media to the new interactive media is a huge opportunity for bloggers, and alternative media outlets alike. The method by which we consume media is rapidly changing and the “elite” media has another thing coming. However I digress, read the post on Tech Crunch about IBM and the end of Advertising as we know it.

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

Posted by Scott V in Culture War.

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

Posted by Scott V in Christianity, Culture War, Islam, USA Politics.
add a comment

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.

I am convinced that Mike Huckabee may be the man I would want to see at the White House. He stands for truth, pro-life, traditional family. America, if you want to remain strong, lets root for Mike!
