Celebrate! The woman of the year!

We have left reality and we are creating our own. 

When two gay men, one woman and two more women are needed to make a baby, something has gone wrong.

In other news, the woman of the year is a man and the winningest female swimmer is also, a man.

The Father Crisis

Good news!

Because of the 6 week abortion ban in Texas and other laws around the country like it, thousands of babies have been saved this year alone.

But that is not enough. Innocent lives are still being taken every day before they take their first breath and men, you can do more than you think about it.

Recently a study from CareNet and Lifeway Research showed that men have a FAR greater influence on whether their partner gets an abortion or not. This news was even surprising to me and we need to talk about it.

Men, it is time to stand up. There is no more time for waiting, for relaxing, for cruising. It is time to work. Not just at ‘work’ but work in life, work in your family, work out your faith.

This episode is aimed at men, because it is time to stand up and against this culture.

However, if you are a woman, you should listen too.

If you are a wife, give this message to your husband.

If you are dating, give this to your boyfriend to listen.

Men need to hear this message.

Adolescence has lasted far too long and we have allowed boys to stay boys forever, just like Peter Pan. This is not how it should be.

We have a crisis and we have an opportunity.

Thanks for listening!

Don’t Say Gay. And Other Controversial Laws

You Can’t Legislate Morality!

I get this comment frequently.

Don’t legislate my morality.

Don’t tell me what to do.

Or something like, “why is your way better than someone else’s way?”

How can you say that the Bible is better than other religions?

This is a BIG topic. 

I am going to skip most of the objections today because most, if not all of them are not real arguments. Most are really just a fancy way of saying, I want to control myself and you are not the boss of me.

But that is silly too, for all of human history we have known that someone has to make the rules for society. Some rulers have been good, most have been bad. God, by definition, is always good, so my money is on him.

Yet, to many, his “rules” seem strict.

They see the 10 commandments as a list of dont’s and they don’t like that.

So many people make up their own morality.

All laws legislate morality. Prove me wrong.

When you stop at a stop sign what is the worst that can happen?

You run the stop sign and kill someone.

That is morality, like it or not.

And EVERY law is moral.

Every single law tells you what you ought to do or not do. That literally is morality. Right and Wrong.

We are more and more confused by this simple concept and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why.

We talk about rights and what is owed us, but we don’t think about the responsibility that comes with these rights.

Then there are those that go off into the weeds and pretend to be talking about rights when they are talking about murder and other various immoral practices.

Today we will look at 5 laws where the conservatives are pushing back and trying to regain morality through legislation and one law that tried to remove certain humans from the planet.

Ash Wednesday and Maternal Healthcare

Ash Wednesday and Maternal Healthcare

Today we talk a bit about Ash Wednesday, Repentance and a couple things that stood out to me about the State of the Union from President Biden.

Welcome to Church Public!


“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭3:19‬

This is not a popular message. 

In fact this is the opposite message of the culture. 
You are told you are good enough. 
You are perfect just the way you are.

The good news of the gospel of Jesus is not that you are perfect but that you are not. 

That’s why you NEED Jesus. 

If you feel worn out and broken and tired, choose Jesus. 
Repent means literally to turn around and go the other way. 

Stop running from God and run toward him today. 
And Jesus WILL forgive your sins. 
God will embrace you as a son or daughter and welcome you to the family where HE will be enough, because HE is Good.

This is How We FIGHT.

This is how we FIGHT.

Not with weapons and violence, but with values and words and most of all TRUTH.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.” Proverbs 1:7-9

The family is the most important building block of society.

The left knows this and they are directly targeting your children.

The left is waging a war against the family and any normal or dare I say it, Biblical family values. WE need to get in the fight.

The good news is that mothers and fathers all across America are waking up to this fight and FIGHTING.

We will look today at the way some schools, teacher associations are dogmatically educating in this sexual revolution AND how some parents are pushing back. Where will you stand?

Trucks, Trudeau and Tyranny!

Nice, but mostly peaceful Canadian Truckers are causing a mess in Canada. 
Prime Minister Trudeau responds by threatening to take all their money straight out of their bank accounts and throw them in jail, probably forever.

Meanwhile, grandpas and kids in bouncy houses are just trying to live their lives in peace and freedom.

Canadian authorities have spent 2 years closing businesses, churches, arresting pastors, etc. But, now that the truckers have clogged a bridge for a day or two, we must declare they are terrorists and all who help them are terrorists, therefore, we need to invoke the Emergency Act in Canada. 

If that sounds tyrannical, that’s because it is!

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20) And, “Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees”. (Isaiah 10:1)

There is nothing new under the sun. History is full of governments mixing up good and evil and overreaching on their authority…..And here we go again!

How do we view all of this from a Christian Perspective?

As He Had Done Previously – Daniel 6

Today we look at what it means to be faithful in the midst of incredible pressure.

“He got down and prayed as he had done previously.” Daniel 6:10

“When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.” ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

The power in Daniel’s story is NOT in the lions, it is NOT in the pit where he was thrown to his impending death.

No, the power was in the relationship that Daniel had with God.

When the king declared no one could worship any God but the king himself, Daniel kept praying “as he had done previously” because Daniel knew God. Daniel had a relationship with God and trusted the power of God. Daniel knew that God had the power to save him. AND Daniel trusted that God had bigger plans.

After Daniel was spared from the hungry lions, the king declared to all the peoples, nations and languages that God is faithful and good. (Daniel 6:25)

That’s the bigger story here, not that God will always rescue you from the lions, but that when you pursue a relationship with him, he is faithful.

Cancelling Cancel Culture – Nehemiah 6

Cancelling Cancel Culture

Why should I come down?

“Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” Nehemiah 6:3

Cancel Culture seems to have taken over our culture. You hear about it every day and you may have even been a victim of it in some way.

Why has it exploded in such a big fashion? Is it a new thing?

And what can a normal, every day Christian do to Cancel, Cancel Culture?

Workers of the World UNITE! Wait, not like THAT?!?!

Workers of the World – UNITE!
But not like THAT?!?!?

Full disclosure – I married a Canadian.
If I talk with fondness and love for our friends in the north, it is because I have fondness and love to the extent of living in the same house with one of those foreigners! Therefore my extended, married into, family is also Canadian and I have a great heart for what is happening to that country as well as my own.

That is one reason I have been so vocal about some of the difficult things Canada has faced over the last couple years. From arresting pastors, to burning churches and now to truckers, farmers and regular folk standing up against the tyrannies of the government.

All the while, if you are watching the news, and I strongly suggest you stop that, these truckers and farmers and regular folk are being called racists, white supremacists, and interlopers.

While the videos that are actually coming out of the “protest” show people hugging, laughing, dancing, and even praying.

What does this have to do with America?

Jesus IS God!

Recently I received a comment that Jesus never claimed to be God and never asked to be worshipped. This one hit me sideways, because, clearly Jesus did claim to be God.

Many times.

Actually his claim to be God is why he was crucified by the Jews.

They were so upset by his claims to be God that they condemned him for heresy and gave him a death sentence.

Actually they tried to kill him numerous times.
