Episode 347: So a United Methodist Church pastor & an Episcopalian Church clergy member bless an abortion clinic. No, that is not the beginning of an awful joke; that really happened last week. Now more than ever religion still matters…and I have the article from last week to prove it. Tune in as I explain the flaws of the misplaced faith of these clergy members & why religion still matters in America.
Episode 339: Behold, an apt description of America written in the first century (see Romans 1.31, ESV). Granted, Paul was not writing to describe American culture. Paul was writing to describe the then-present state of Roman society. Nevertheless, those four words accurately and succinctly characterize modern America.
The first word, “foolish,” can also be translated stupid. American culture is obsessed with the stupid. We even buy shirts with the phrase “I’m with stupid” plastered across the front. Turn on your television and watch the latest episode of anything on MTV and you will find stupidity rather quickly. Far too often stupidity is linked with ungodliness. So it is no wonder a secondary definition of this word is just that: ungodly. Yes, where folly is sin is crouching at the door.
“Faithless” means untrustworthy when it comes to keeping covenant (cf. ASV, KJV). Many so-called Christians live their lives as though there is no God with whom they have entered into covenant by the blood of His Son. In a broader sense America is witnessing the rise of the “nons” – those who do not identify with any religious group. America is growing more and more faithless.
Many Americans are “heartless.” Literally it is without familial affection. There is no love for the family. Indeed, this is the attribute which will cause a mother to abort her unborn baby, a father to abandon his family, children to talk back to and hate their parents, and government to pass legislation which is detrimental to the traditional family unit, viz. homosexual marriage.
“Ruthless” is the word which means lack of mercy. What comes to mind immediately is the political realm. Jay Leno once said that “politics” is a compound word from “poly” meaning many and “tics” which are bloodsuckers. The political game is a merciless one. But this is an apt description of what happens on the playground when parents raise children who will merciless bully other kids.
Welcome to America – the Rome of the 21st century!

Episode 304: 42 years ago Roe V. Wade legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, some 57 million America babies have been systematically slaughtered by the abortion industry. Recently, I went to a pro-life rally and in today’s episode I share some of my experiences from that excursion.
