Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. 11/22/17 With another Thanksgiving upon us, it’s good to consider what the Pilgrims endured and how they thanked God through it all. I just finished reading a phenomenal book on the group of dissident Christians who founded Plymouth in 1620. Historian Rod Gragg wrote The Pilgrim Chronicles: An Eyewitness history of the Pilgrims and the Founding of Plymouth Colony (Regnery History, 2014). I thought I knew a lot about the Pilgrims, but …

By Tim Brown President Donald Trump, in a manner much like his predecessors, issued his Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, and unlike the previous usurper of the White House, he recounted our history and why Thanksgiving came to be. Thank you for this reminder, Mr. President.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone… take time and bless the Lord, who despite our rebelliousness has continued to provide for us.  Let us repent before Him and cry out for His mercy to …

By Onan Coca Several Thanksgivings ago, I wrote a piece about how I was learning to be a Thanks-giver. I’ve learned much since that Thanksgiving in 2011 (the dad of 3 kids has to be constantly learning), but this article still describes what I feel Thanksgiving really is. It’s the week of Thanksgiving, one of our most important American holidays, and a writer would be remiss to not write about this important day.  Several hundred …

Four years ago my article: “Thank You Lord for Thanksgiving!” appeared in The Olive Branch Report.  Many responded wonderfully from across the country, and even shared their own stories of giving thanks. This year we have all the more reason to give thanks to the Lord God of All Creation for the myriad blessings in each of our lives; and for the blessings that can still be seen and named in our Nation.  I pray …

By Linda Kimball In the classic work “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), G.H. Pember, an English theologian, records that  men of the 19th century were returning to ancient wisdom traditions and thought was “sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore.”   Almost every characteristic of antiquity is returning: “Open intercourse with demons is being renewed on a vast scale in the very heart of Christendom….numerous circles are carrying on magical practices (and the) ancient Mysteries (are being restored together with) mesmeric …

Sometimes When He Speaks

By John Miltenberger 11/3/2017 I was blessed to sit in church Wednesday, 11/1/2017, and hear my son-in-law and my daughter give their testimony. That alone is a situation to be envied by many, and I was well aware of it! But the point of this essay is found in what they said, and how God spoke through them, because it’s important to train our ears to recognize His voice. Through the years I’ve heard God …

A group of liberal clergy gathered at a Fort Worth, Texas abortion clinic to “bless” its staff and patients, sing “Hallelujah,” and support abortion as a woman’s “God-given right.” The Texas Observer reported liberal clergy organized by the Religious Institute gathered last Thursday, November 9, to pray for God’s blessings over the abortion clinic and counter the narrative “Anti-abortion advocacy is often inextricably tied to religion.” The pro-abortion prayer event was organized by Kentina Washington-Leapheart, a minister who …
