What would you think if our American President, Donald J. Trump would call the nation to a day of fasting and prayer on each and every anniversary of 9/11.

Personally, I think it would be terrific. That is why I have joined together with friends like Mike Huckabee, Pat Robertson, Kay Arthur and others to encourage our President to do just such a thing.

In the video below you will see how you too can be a part of encouraging the President to call America to repentance, fasting and prayer this September 11, 2017. We need 100,000 Americans to join with us in the effort.

Hopefully, this may just be the beginning of the national revival we have hoped for. One great day of repentance and seeking the face of God will change it all!





One of my dear friends in the political arena is Newt Gingrich, past Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, who has one of the brightest minds to ever grace the halls of Congress. Yesterday, I was reading an opinion piece that Newt wrote for the Fox News Network concerning the implications of the constant bombardment of President Trump by the National Liberal Media.

What he wrote was enlightening and one of the best writings I have read about the current state of America’s President and his critics.  I wanted to share it with you.

Here is what the Speaker had to say,

The endless hostility of the Left, exemplified by violent fascists on college campuses, thugs in the streets, determined disrupters at town hall meetings, and the dishonest elite media are all part of their efforts to defeat the reforms and changes that President Trump was elected to implement.Republicans, in particular the Trump administration, are approaching a historic decision that will shape America for generations to come.

The constant, anonymous leaks from disgruntled federal bureaucrats aim to provide ammunition for the propaganda news media to press the attack.

The Left’s dance of destruction is stunningly choreographed.

I have been overseas for the last three days, and it has been sickening to see so many foreigners terrified because they unknowingly believe the news media’s false reports and vicious attacks. The only version of President Trump they know is the one portrayed in the 24-hour cesspool of CNN and the daily acrimony of the New York Times. Sadly, our own nation’s news media is doing more to undermine America’s image than Al Jazeera or Pravda combined.

As the media continues to serve as a megaphone for the nameless federal employees who have axes to grind, remember that 95 percent of 2016 campaign donations from federal employees went to Hillary Clinton. At the State Department, 99 percent of employees who gave supported Clinton, and that figure is 97 percent at the Department of Justice.

Congressional Republicans are rapidly approaching a crossroads. Some have already surrendered by giving up on town hall meetings. Others have accepted the news media’s false narrative as the truth. Republicans must decide if they are going to fight for what they believe in or retreat to the tenuous safety of the beltway bubble.

The Trump White House faces an even greater challenge. Trying to reason with, placate, or even respond to the Washington news media is a losing game.  Each day, the opposition media is fiercely committed to either magnifying a supposed problem or inventing a new one.

We are today in a one-sided cultural civil war. The Left has picked the battlefield and defined the terms of engagement. If conservatives respond to this aggressive, sometimes violent hostility from the Left with confusion, uncertainty, and appeasement, we are guaranteed to lose the struggle to drain the swamp and reform Washington.

Further, surrendering will destroy America as we know it. Far from making America great again, we will have yielded our country to left-wing thugs, liars, and intimidators.

Those of us who truly want to make America great again have one choice: Fight. Our situation is similar to President Lincoln’s in 1861. He had to make the choice between fighting until he won or giving up on the idea of the United States. Once again, our country is at stake.

Senate Republicans are well-positioned because there are 10 Democratic senators up for re-election in states President Trump won last November. These Democrats should be made to carry the burden of the collapsing ObamaCare system and the pain it is causing in their states. They should be made to own every strand of expensive red tape they vote to keep and every Homeland Security measure they oppose. They should be held accountable for every crime in their states committed by criminal aliens protected by sanctuary city laws.

If Senate Republicans implement an all-out campaign, they could pick up all 10 seats and have the largest GOP majority since the election of 1868.

House Republicans have a more difficult challenge. Political polarization, compounded by a number of incumbents retiring, make it harder for them to expand their majority. But here are some numbers for perspective:

  • 12 congressional districts carried by President Trump are currently represented by Democrats.
  • These Democrats won by an average of six percent, or just 19,000 votes.
  • Four won by less than two points.

On the other hand:

  • 23 Republicans are in districts won by Secretary Clinton.
  • They won their races by an average of 12 percent, or 37,000 votes.
  • Only one Republican in a Clinton-won district won by less than 2 points.

Defeating the Left’s attacks will require House Republicans to engage in significantly more training and planning than they are used to. Most House Republicans have spent their congressional careers in a safe majority. Very few lived through the disaster of 2006, and only a handful of current members were in the so-called permanent minority before 1994.

This House GOP has never faced an all-out political war like this. House Republicans must dramatically reorganize their thinking and restructure their activities – or resign themselves to accepting Speaker Pelosi and the impeachment effort of 2019 (which will be the Democrats’ first priority, should they gain control of the House).

House Republicans must change now. Fighting to retain a majority is far easier than fighting to reclaim it. Remember, before the Contract with America, House Republicans had been in the minority for 40 years.

The Trump White House, however, faces the biggest decisions. Members of the Trump team have used harsh words but timid tactics when dealing with the unending, dishonest, and vicious assaults by the left-wing media.

The President seems to understand how serious and how bad the situation is. He has said:  “As you know I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.” Jan. 21, 2017.  “But there are some terrible, dishonest people, and they do a tremendous disservice to our country and to our people.  A tremendous disservice.  They are very dishonest people, and they shouldn’t use sources.  They should put the name of the person.  You will see stories dry up like you’ve never seen before.”  Feb. 24, 2017.  “The Washington media is part of the problem. Their priorities are not my priorities, and they’re not your priorities,” April 29, 2017.

When your opponents are “among the most dishonest human beings on earth,” “do a tremendous disservice service to the country,” and are “part of the problem,” then you need a strategy and system that is built around that analysis.

The next few months will see one of the greatest decisions in American history. Do we fight to make America great again, or do we surrender to those who claim the elitist power to dictate to the rest of us?

There is no middle ground.


Every American who is over 30 is to some degree aware of the changes that have occurred in our nation’s culture over the past several years. As they say, “Things are not what they used to be.” Unfortunately, most of the changes are not for the better, and only the Lord knows what is coming in the future.

Think with me about some of those changes.

Music has changed from smooth musical melodies about love and friendship with words that we could understand to the indistinguishable noise we have now that is hard to describe, yet still call it music.

Today more babies are being born out of wedlock than are born to wedded couples.

Men are really women, if they feel like they are, and women are really men. Forget the science of biology, it’s all about their abstract feelings.

Friends don’t talk much anymore, they just text one another.

College kids run the campuses of our major universities and learning is no longer the main purpose of attending school. Safe spaces, coloring books, sensitivity training and a plethora of other nonsense rules the day.

America’s heroes are now coming from comic books instead of history books.

Socialism and Marxism is being widely accepted by the wide-eyed pseudo intellectuals as “fair” and the “only just” form of government for our future, when thousands of Americans have shed their blood on the battlefields fighting to spare our homeland from the evils of such “Bernie Sanders” philosophies.

I could go on, but I’m sure you get my point. With that said about the present times, we must look to the future and what it may hold for our culture. And one of the ways to do that is to analyze who many of our young people are following today.

If you observe kids in the shopping malls, at music concerts and college gatherings, you will undoubtedly see on tee-shirts or placards the picture of an evil thug of the 1950’s – Che Guevara.

His photograph is now being touted as the most widely copied photo in the world. But who is the man and why is his image followed by so many?

Che Guevara was an Argentinian rebel who served as the executioner for Fidel Castro during the days following the Communist dictator’s takeover of Cuba.

Che was fascinated with killing and torturing the innocent. He is responsible for the murder of 14,000 men, women, boys and girls in Cuba. He often would personally shoot innocent peasants through the head just as he put it-to watch them die. He met his own death in Bolivia in the 1960’s.

The image of this godless thug is now celebrated on tee shirts, coffee mugs, necklaces, flags and whatever else you can image on University campuses across our nation.

Actors like Johnny Depp, singers like Justin Bieber, rappers like Jay Z and multitudes of other entertainers and personalities proudly wear his image.Either they are ignorant or they are merciless individuals who America’s youth look up to.

Time magazine named Che one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

Christian beware. Pure evil is being glorified before our very eyes. Scripture tells us there will come a day when “evil is called good and good is called evil” Isaiah 5:20. Today is that day.

Become informed. Stay on the alert and before God in prayer!  The time has never been more crucial than today to do all that we can to turn America back to God.

This week President Donald Trump kept one of his most important campaign promises by signing an Executive Order that will protect freedom of speech and freedom of religion in America.

This Order should put a stop to the fears of many churches and pastors that they will be oppressed by the IRS for practicing their Constitutional right to speak firmly concerning individual policy and politicians from their pulpits.  Although the infamous Johnson Amendment, that has for over half a century threatened churches not to publicly endorse or warn against a political candidates will need to be voted on by Congress, the Order serves the same purpose until Congress acts on the issue.

My dear friend Paul Teller, who serves as the Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs at The White House, emailed me the quick summary of the Order.  I thought you might want to see it.


1. Declares that it is the policy of the administration to protect and vigorously promote religious liberty;

2. Directs the IRS to exercise maximum enforcement discretion to alleviate the burden of the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits religious leaders from speaking about politics and candidates from the pulpit;

3. Provides regulatory relief for religious objectors to Obamacare’s burdensome preventive services mandate, a position supported by the Supreme Court decision in Hobby Lobby.

It looks like after all of the years that so many of us have worked to “crack the nut” of anti-Christian attitudes in Washington, perhaps this act of President Trump will be the beginning of good things to come.


America’s Founders gathered at Independence Hall on July 4, 1776, to establish a nation that would be a beacon of hope and freedom to countless millions throughout the generations. Similarly, Christ’s disciples gathered in Jerusalem to establish a church destined to take the hope of the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Just as America’s Founding Fathers did, those early Christians faced many challenges, real dangers, and much opposition. But by God’s grace as well as with prayer, hard work, and a steadfast reliance on the Almighty, they took the truth of the gospel to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

What was true in the past is equally true today. The gospel of Jesus is the only hope for peace upon which individuals – or nations – can rely. We have the message and we have been given the opportunity to share it with the world in amazing ways.  And as we do, the power of the Spirit of God will be released upon our nation and things will always change for the better!


Often as I interview some of America’s brightest minds, I will spend plenty of time studying books and websites to gain knowledge about American culture and Christianity. This week I decided to share some of the websites I frequently visit to prepare for writing, speaking or debating important subjects.

Although I will send more in the future, these are enough to keep you abreast of important happenings in our nation. I hope they will be of use to you and you will grow in your knowledge as I seek to grow in mine. This is by no means complete but should form the basis of beginning a good web library.

The Bible is the greatest resource of all. After all, it is the Word of God, the Creator of it all.


As we are a Christian people living in a secular society, it is important that we educate ourselves concerning what is occurring in the body of Christ across America. For good resources visit:

Did you know that according to some scientist your brain determines your theological beliefs? You’re probably thinking, “You’ve got to be kidding!” Well, actually I’m not. Here is the story:

This week I was talking to a friend of mine who happens to be a well-known and respected neurologist. While talking together about the subject of religion, he asked me if I had heard of the study of Neurotheology. “Not really,” I responded. Then he went on to explain it to me in layman’s terms.

Neurotheology is the study between the activity of the neurons of the Temporal lobe section of the brain and their responses to theological thinking. These neurons are supposed to influence what religion we would choose.

Finding that this theory is being accepted by some of today’s scientific minds, it set me to thinking about what we could see if we could peer inside the brain, and view how these neurons would appear according to their religious preferences. Here is what I would expect to see:

Ten Religious Preferences and Their Neuron Activity
Baptist – Neurons pushing against each other
Independent Baptist – Totally separated from the other neurons
Hard Shell Baptist – Neurons Petrified
Calvinist – Frozen in place
United Methodist – Active only on left side of brain
Seeker Sensitive – Hard to determine any pattern at all
Charismatic – Do you remember the game Pong?
Mormon – Each neuron was missing for a two year period
Catholic – Small neurons encircling one large neuron in the middle
Atheist – That part of the brain is missing

Now I don’t image this to be verifiable science, but it’s just as acceptable a theory as any other in Neurotheology.

There is no doubt that the risen Christ is indeed worthy to be praised and worshiped throughout eternity. It is interesting that in our nation’s Capital, the first and last rays of sunlight fall every day upon its tallest building – the 555-foot Washington Monument. And there on its top, inscribed on the four-sided aluminum capstone are the Latin words Laus Deo, which means “Praise be to God.” This simple expression of praise reflects America’s abiding belief that God has blessed our country with liberty and divine favor.

I am the Alpha and the Omega,
The Beginning and the End,
The First and the Last.




Does most of the secular world seem crazy these days to you or is it just my personal view of our “civilization.”

A decade or so ago, I used to shake my head in disbelief once or twice a day concerning something I heard or saw that was just “plain stupid,” but if I did the same thing now my neck would explode!

Yes, I am aware that there is some solace in the fact that human history shows other generations that have had difficult days and eventually recovered, but none quite like this. Technology has changed all of that. We are not living in the same world as others in the past. Today is altogether different. It is truly a different world than it has ever been before. The world is now traveling through an unexplainable era.

I don’t even need to illustrate that point it is so evident. Fear, anger and confusion rule the day. Riots, hatred, ridiculousness are common place on the evening news. It is a mad, mad world.

But I’m glad to testify, there are those who in the midst of this ungodly culture have discovered a way above the fray of these times. Those whose faith is anchored in Christ Jesus have the keys to personal peace and a calm freedom from fear. The Scriptures describe it as peace in the midst of the storm.

Money, influence, friendships, none of these and a thousand other things can’t pay the price for peace. That price was paid on the Cross of Calvary by Jesus the Son of God two thousand years ago. And since then it has been available for anyone who chooses to gain it through a personal relationship with Christ.

So what is the answer for the unexplainable era of time? Christ Jesus is the answer. Hear His words to us:
“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”  John 14:27

Isaiah 26:3 reminds us, “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
