Jerry Bowyer: Larry Kudlow the God Question


Larry Kudlow has been subject to unending attacks from the mainstream media since being announced as Trump’s chief economic advisor.

Kudlow is a devout Catholic who credits God for getting him through his years of substance abuse. On CNBC, Kudlow said that, whatever might happen during his tenure as Trump’s advisor, it would be the will of God. This sentiment isn’t actually controversial, but on their MSNBC show, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle found it worthy of incredulous laughter and snide sarcasm.

Velshi used to work for Al Jazeera—if someone there had said inshallah (God’s will) no one at MSNBC would have dreamed of treating them with such contempt!

Kudlow is a fine conservative economist and will serve the president well.

And his faith should be off limits.

Albert Mohler: The Promise Of Easter


This Sunday is Easter, a great celebration day for Christians. The Church bears a mandate to proclaim the truth that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. The resurrected Lord gave the Church a sacred commission to take the gospel—the message of Christ’s victory over sin and death throughout the world.

So, as the Church gathers to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christians look back in thankfulness to that empty tomb and forward to the fulfillment of Christ’s purposes in us. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the promise of our resurrection from the dead, and of Christ’s total victory over sin and death.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is at the very center of the Christian gospel. The empty tomb is full of power.

Happy Easter to all. May the joy of the resurrection be yours.

Michael Medved: A Lesson from Lincoln on President’s Day

Opioid

On the eve of Civil War, Abraham Lincoln concluded his First Inaugural Address with two sentences of incandescent eloquence: “Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

These words remind us that Lincoln—whose legacy we honor on President’s Day—became one of the greatest English prose writers in history, despite his background as an impoverished frontier boy with only a year of schooling. His rise constitutes one of the many American miracles that should inspire anyone willing to look with open eyes at our uniquely blessed past.

Throughout the Civil War and till the day of his death, Lincoln followed the approach later recommended by Bismarck: Listen for God’s footsteps marching through history, then grab his coattails and hang on.

May we see God’s design for America as we celebrate President’s Day.

Albert Mohler: A Thankful People

Headlines

In the year 1620, the brave souls known to us as the Pilgrims reached the shores of North America. They were fleeing persecution and seeking a land where they could worship God freely.

In the words of their chronicler, “they had now no friends to welcome them, no inns to entertain or refresh them, no houses, or much less towns… and they that know the winters of the country know them to be sharp and violent….”

For far too many Americans, the Pilgrims are something akin to cartoon characters, but they were flesh and blood human beings without whom we would not have the nation we enjoy today.

Despite all their dangers, they were a thankful people, and their thankfulness to God set the example that our nation has followed.

On behalf of the Salem Media Group, I’m Albert Mohler wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Albert Mohler: How Can We Explain Such An Act Of Evil?

Headlines

The little Texas town of Sutherland Springs is experiencing unfathomable grief and mourning. On Sunday, a gunman dressed in black entered the First Baptist Church during worship and killed at least 26 people in cold blood – targeting men, women, and children – including the 14 year-old daughter of the church’s pastor. Another 20 victims are injured.

How can we explain such an act of evil? What possible motivation could explain it? This was an attack upon a church gathered for worship, in a little Texas town far from the normal headlines.

We rightly demand answers. But some of the most urgent of our questions may never be answered, including the question, “Why?”

We do know that the Christian faith dignifies the reality of suffering and sorrow. Christ tells us that blessed are those who mourn.

We pray for all those families and the grieving community of Christians. We mourn with them. Our call now is to grieve with those who grieve – those who grieve an unimaginable grief.

Albert Mohler: The AP Stylebook Joins The Sexual And Moral Revolution

Billy Graham

The Associated Press Stylebook has decided to join the sexual and moral revolution, and it’s going to war with human nature.

The new guidelines instruct that writers and editors, for example, should “avoid references to being born a boy or girl.”

On the one hand, we must realize that one of the most important weapons in moral revolution is vocabulary. If you change the language, you in effect change the reality.

On the other hand, we can be sure that they will not actually be successful in changing this fundamental reality of biological sex. As much as the modern sexual revolutionaries may want to destroy them, the terms and ideas of being male or female remain rather indispensable.

Parents will continue to announce that a baby boy or a baby girl has been born. And that’s because, thanks be to God, parents are not bound by the Associated Press Stylebook, nor will they be.
