Try the Jesus way this holiday season

What Jesus would do.

There was a time several years ago when I really wanted to give myself to Jesus. I was in a church, became a deacon, joined Promise Keepers, went on mission trips, and paid my tithings. I attended a two-year Bible study and continued into a third year with the instructor of the course.

But I never really felt I knew what Jesus wanted me to do. One verse always stuck with me. Someone asked Jesus what the most important of the Ten Commandments were. Jesus replied, “Love God and love your neighbor” (Luke 10:27). Read More»

Alien and American Internment

Sallie Satterthwaite's picture

Editor’s note: This is the first of two columns. The second column will run next week.

Every now and then a reader shares with me something they think I’d like to use for a column. I thank them kindly, but rarely write it.

This one wouldn’t leave me alone. It stayed on my mind several weeks, growing downright pesky. What tipped me was that I called or emailed several contacts, and they had never heard of anything like it. Read More»

Thank you

Rick Ryckeley's picture

Last Friday our local hospital had one of the busiest days ever. Teams of skilled surgeons performed 68 operations that ranged from minor to life-saving. I know this because I spent all day waiting on my best friend. As events unfolded over the next 24 hours, she was to be on the receiving end of one of those life-saving operations. Read More»

The TSA Controversy

David Epps's picture

So, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is instituting new screening procedures for the flying public. One method involves a sort of X-ray that is apparently pretty revealing. The other is an “enhanced pat-down.” Plenty of people are terribly upset about this claiming that the procedures violate privacy and are a violation of the 4th Amendment prohibitions against unlawful search and seizure. I am not among those people. Read More»

Fiddling while America burns

Terry Garlock's picture

Count me as a conservative pleased at the results of the recent election, but fully expecting to be disappointed by my own Republican Party.

How many struggles between Republicans and Democrats will be over foundation issues that really matter? Who will take up the cause of regaining control over a bloated and arrogant federal government that uses the fig leaf of the Commerce Clause to justify reaching into every crevice of our lives? Who will champion returning the federal government to the constraints of its enumerated powers in the constitution? Probably nobody. Read More»

Deflation vs. Dead man walking

Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson's picture

[Editor’s Note: A version of this article first appeared in American Thinker.]

To Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, deflation is regarded as Public Enemy Number One.

In the words of New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, the “real [economic] threat is deflation.” Krugman advocates additional and even more aggressive government deficit spending. Read More»

With incoming governor, it’s time for ‘New Deal’ in criminal justice

Marc A. Levin's picture

Georgia’s Governor-elect Nathan Deal has earned his stripes as a tough-as-nails prosecutor who rightly noted on the campaign trail that he put many rapists in prison where they belong. At the same time, prosecutors in Georgia and around the nation also see up close the many low-level, nonviolent offenders who cycle through the system. Read More»

Is the American Dream ended? And who's to blame?

Cal Thomas's picture

For generations, parents have told their children about “The American dream.” Basically it has meant building a life based on the foundational principles that created and have sustained America for more than 200 years. By doing so, one might reasonably expect a new generation to achieve a better life than their parents and grandparents experienced.

But what defines “better”? In modern times it has been defined as achieving greater prosperity and consuming more material goods. Read More»

Bill O’Reilly takes a stab at answering query, ‘Who is Barack Obama?’

Dick Morris's picture

Is Barack Obama a socialist? A Muslim? Anti-American? Pro-Palestinian? Or just a man who is right sometimes and wrong most of the time? Bill O’Reilly opts for the second option in his new book, “Pinheads and Patriots.”

Bill rigorously focuses on what President Obama does, not on who he is. He refuses to speculate about motivation, preferring instead the more solid ground of observing and frequently condemning his policies. The whole is never larger than the sum of its parts in O’Reilly’s book. In fact, they’re not really added up at all. Read More»
