I have wanted to tell this story for a long time. I was cleaning out a box of memorabilia. I don’t have much. Now I have less: about a 4-inch stack of magazines. I came across a publication the size of a magazine, Southern California Football 1958. It covered high schools mostly, with a few […]

Paul Ryan had planned a vote on limiting suspected terrorists’ access to legal guns. This was correctly perceived by second amendment supporters as a sell-out. A list that bars suspected terrorists from flying on a commercial airplane is inherently unconstitutional in the first place. Either the government arrests a suspected terrorist and tries him in […]

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

Here is a story that deserves more attention. The estimate: 100,000 people a year “donate” their vital organs. Then they lose vitality, such as heartbeats. They don’t get paid. This is Communism.

Matthew 8 records that a centurion came to Jesus and asked Him to heal his servant. It says that “a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him” (v. 5). But Luke 7 says that Jews came to Jesus in the name of the centurion, and then the centurion’s friends came to Him (vv. 3, 6). […]

Christianity and Progress

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

progress

The origin of the idea of progress was exclusively Western; in fact, it was originally a Christian idea. Only with the widespread acceptance of the biblical concept of linear time did men begin to believe that there could be earthly progress. They began to act in terms of a view of life that says that […]
