Castrated Christianity

Scott Buss BODY OF CHRIST, FALSE DOCTRINE, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, SUPPORT A FREE USA!, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL Leave a Comment

By Scott Buss Sure, we all know that Snowflake Culture has overtaken and redefined America, but how did it happen? How did feelings come to trump facts? How did niceness (incoherently defined and selectively applied, of course) come to displace the spirit of loving confrontation and correction necessary to the pursuit of truth, the preservation of liberty, and the formation of real adult relationships, culture, and civilization? How did things like masculinity and patriarchy come …

Remembering the One and Only Glen Campbell

Lyle Rapacki FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, U.S. NEWS 1 Comment

Glen Campbell played on center stage for several decades as a premiere entertainer and gentleman’s musician.  Glen introduced many famous performers who began their own careers playing his songs or appearing on his TV weekly show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” and several Television Specials.  For instance, did you know Glen Campbell played with the Beach Boys, or introduced the Smothers Brothers to the nation, or was highly regarded among so very, very many famous …

Jerry Newcombe BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES, TEENS-KIDS Leave a Comment

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 …

Learning to be a Thanks-giver

Onan Coca BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES Leave a Comment

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 …

THANK YOU LORD for THANKSGIVING!

Lyle Rapacki BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES Leave a Comment

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 …

How to Have a Thrifty Thanksgiving Dinner

Daisy Luther FAMILY, FEATURED ARTICLES Leave a Comment

By Daisy Luther Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of gratitude when you get together with the people you love and give thanks for what you have. But like every other holiday, it has become a retail frenzy and a day for which people spend hundreds of dollars on one single meal to host an epic Thanksgiving dinner. Stop that! You shouldn’t have to spend an entire month’s grocery budget on a lavish dinner …
