    Integrity, Do You Have It?

    All week long I have been working on ideas for this Saturday’s article. I began writing on the MMR vaccine, but the motivation I had for it dwindled fast. Then I started one on the political lobbying of Planned Parenthood and how it compared to that of the NRA. However, when I was nearly finished with it I realized there…

    When it comes to being a politician, many skills, characteristics, and talents are required for success. Not the least among these is the art of lying.

I originally thought that any killings happening in Africa were caused by government control of citizens or from conflicts based on land ownership. Many questions began to form in my mind. Why are so many Christians being…

    Missed Opportunities To Learn New Skills

    I recently watched a few YouTube videos where a young man, who wants to get into forging, built himself a forge and an anvil. The forge was made from just a cast-iron camping skillet, a folding metal chair, some plumbing pipe, and a blowdryer. The anvil was made from plywood, pine 4×4’s, railroad ties, and a railroad plate.

    Abortion Workers Are Not Our Enemy, Sin Is

    Oftentimes, on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Gab, and Parler, I see pro-life enthusiasts expressing hate and ill-wishes for abortion workers. It seems that these people identify those involved with the abortion industry as targets for their indignation. This concept is easy for me to understand because I often look for targets to lash out at when I…

    Live In The Present

    Both the past and future have their potential uses, one can provide precedence and the other can provide motivation. Yet, the past and future are not what we are called to dwell in, that honor is reserved for the present. I am not talking about the superficiality of a “YOLO” (You Only Live Once) lifestyle. Living in the present isn’t…
