   And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If Yahweh1 be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. (1 Kings 18:21) Identifying Baal Historically, Baal is the name of the chief god of the ancient Canaanites and Phoenicians. But, more importantly, what is Baal? […]

[T]he law is ignored and justice is never upheld. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore, justice comes out perverted. (Habakkuk 1:4) November 19, 2013, was the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. The speech is iconic, but is it Biblical?

Politicians and non-politicians alike employ all three terms as if there’s a consensus on the parameters for those designations. Even if this were true, who gets to determine what’s right, left, and center, and how are […]

American exceptionalism is the proposition that the United States is different from other countries in that it has a specific world mission to spread liberty and democracy.
