The Sabbath---A Gift from God

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
Stores and gas stations are routinely open on Sunday. Even on Easter Sunday, Amazon deliveries are taking place. God has designed us in such a way that we need to take breaks. Having a weekly break in the Sabbath is gift of God that we neglect to our peril.

The Significance of the Empty Tomb

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
Pictured: "I am the resurrection and the life..." said Jesus. This plaque is behind the coffins of George and Martha Washington at Mount Vernon. The historical resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the turning point in human history.

A Lenten Meditation on Cancel Culture

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
Cancel culture is eating away our lives. It is a cancer to our culture. During this time of Lent, when we remember the atoning work of Jesus on the cross, how striking it is that in cancel culture, there is no forgiveness. That is not the way of Christ.

Will California Schools Mandate Pagan Religion?

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
[Pictured: the California state capitol building in Sacramento] In California schools, it would seem that Jesus is out, but teaching students to chant to human-sacrifice-requiring Aztec deities may soon be in.

In God We Trust?

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
"In God We Trust" is our national motto. But these days, it seems many are at war with the idea that God has anything to do with the public square in America. Why does it matter? Because if you remove God, as many would like to do today, you remove the foundation of our rights.

In the name of "COVID relief," a massive bill is in the works that would only use 1 percent of the budget to fight COVID and would seem to be a massive wealth transfer payments scheme. One critic called it "a liberal wish list."

Yesterday's Heroes, Today's Villains

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
Just in time for Presidents Day 2021 comes San Francisco's decision to strip the name of three U.S. presidents from public schools in the nation's seventh largest school district. Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln are what I call, "Yesterday's Heroes, Today's Villains."

Trump Impeachment II

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
George Washington, the father of our country, warned us about how factionalism could undermine our country. We certainly see a lot of partisan politics today. A case in point is the attempt to impeach former President Trump. Critics note this is a measure that only applies to sitting presidents---not former ones.

Biden's Excessive Executive Orders

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
Biden said in October that we need to rule by consensus. Yet in his first ten days of office, he has been signing an excessive number of executive orders. Far more than Trump or Obama did. The founders intended more of a balanced government of "we the people."
