Where Do We Go from Here—in Our World and Nation?

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief “Where do we go from here?” That is the question before us as we begin this new year of 2017, and it will be the object of our examination in this short blog series. As Bible-believing Christians, we can examine this question on many different levels. We will look at it specifically in the following areas: Where do we go from here—in our world, in our nation and in our service to God and [...]

What Are We Then to Do?

(Read Part 1) Because we believe, what are we then to do? Because we believe, we cannot help but do our best to tell others of the gospel of Christ. What activity can be most strategic by the Christian who wants to spread the gospel and serve Christ well? It is exactly this—to speak, to preach, to promote, to publish the Word. It is to give ourselves to that most necessary and most strategic of all activities—the propagation of the gospel in [...]

The Greatest of All Messages from Heaven

The greatest of all messages from heaven—the coming of Christ to be born in Bethlehem’s manger—is now being celebrated once again by the world. He was born in Bethlehem’s manger, He lived a perfect life, and then He died for our sins on the cross. Then He arose again to demonstrate that it was all true. Christ the Son of the living God and what He did for us on the cross—this should be message enough to bring the whole world to [...]

America Pushed Back

(Read Part 1) As we saw in Part 1, the Democratic Party platform has replaced God with government. They have sought to redefine reality, acting as their own god. Here are some examples: Redefiners of origins: You cannot teach about the Creator or creation of life, terms enshrined in our founding documents. Redefiners of life: You can abort that infant even though it is partially born and his head is out of the womb. Redefiners of marriage: Same-sex marriage is legal; opposing [...]

The Gracious Providence of God

Two days following the recent election, a secular Jewish friend of mine asked me, “How can anyone not believe in God, after what He did in this election?” The evangelical Christians showed up in record numbers and voted 81 percent to reject the worldview, agenda, corruption and compromise that increasingly characterized this nation’s government for at least the last 25 years. Other, usually pro-Democratic constituents, were disenchanted and failed to show. God’s hand was in this election. Often I hear that we [...]

Certainty Amidst Questions for the Future

(Read Part 1) In 1799, Dr. Jedidiah Morse echoed the sentiments of David and Solomon when he warned, Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government . . . must fall with them. Again and again, this principle has proven true in the history of our country. Whenever America has turned its back on God—destroying our foundation—it has resulted in another giant step in the descent toward Gomorrah, to paraphrase Robert Bork’s famous suggestion that the United [...]

America’s Christian Foundation

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s [...]

America Dodged a Bullet

(Read Part 1) In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed; In Your righteousness deliver me. Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me. You will pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength. Into Your [...]

Election Offers Unexpected Turn

O clap your hands, all peoples; Shout to God with the voice of joy. For the LORD Most High is to be feared, A great King over all the earth. He subdues peoples under us And nations under our feet (Ps. 47:1-3). Of the 17 individuals that competed in the Republican primary for the 2016 presidential nomination, Donald Trump was my 17th choice. He was dead last on my preferred list of Republican presidential hopefuls. However, my reticence toward Trump was quite different [...]
