Learning the Wrong Lesson in Texas?

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
The recent tragedy in Texas brings the energy issue front and center. Some on the left blame the state for not embracing the fight against climate change. In reality, the freezing of the wind turbines show that reliable forms of energy always need to be available for back up.

Frittering Away Our Grandchildren’s Future?

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
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.

Won't Know Much About History

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
There is a battle over history in our time. An example of that was outgoing President Trump's initiative of a 1776 Commission---and then incoming President Biden's nullifying Trump's 1776 initiative. Why does history matter?

Abortion---The Issue that Will Not Die

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
The pro-life movement has suffered some serious setbacks in recent times. This week marks the anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision (January 22, 1973) of the Supreme Court. It is the issue that will not die, regardless of how many setbacks.

Law and Disorder

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
The whole world was shocked by what took place last week at the U.S. Capitol. There's no justification for the melee that took place. But it was not in the spirit of true conservatives and Christians. How are we to process all this?

Abortion and the Georgia Runoffs

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
This week's senate runoffs in Georgia are extremely important. One issue that may be a backburner one is still extremely important---abortion. When a politician gets abortion wrong, they tend to get other major issues wrong too.

A Worthy Goal for the New Year

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
As we enter a new year and we consider resolutions for self-improvement, a worthy goal is to spend more time in God's Word. There are some in this world (the persecuted Christians) who would love to read the Bible but they don't always have access to it.
