Possibly, in 40 years or so, someone will write an analysis of the political career of Barack H. Obama that is as insightful, fair, and painfully accurate as this column was about the career of Richard Nixon.
"Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:7-8 Peace will come to the Middle East when Jesus Christ returns to this earth to rule and reign from His earthly father David's throne in Jerusalem.
Excellent article, Matt. Unfortunately, however, you shaded the truth at the end. As we both (hopefully) know, peace will come to the Middle East when Jesus Christ returns, and the smoke clears from Armageddon. Not a nano-second sooner. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Liberal 'compassion' and the liberal philosophy in action- 2 hour executions and 25 years for justice to be carried out. There should be a MAXIMUM of three months between the imposition of sentence and its execution. And have a shred of compassion for the condemned: a bullet or the guillotine, and it's over in a nano-second. Flopping around and gasping for air on a gurney- that's CRUELTY
With a politician, his or her current political stance has NOTHING to do with their conscience; but everything to do political polls and current social trends. Is Dr. Brown so naïve to believe that any politician would remain consistent to any previous statement or position they took? Politicians keep their nose to the wind; and when the political and social winds change, politicians are right out in front of the change.

The Great Escape

"The Great Escape"- a Hollywood classic dedicated to the memory of some brave, gutsy POWs in WW-2. What I am having some difficulty doing is 'wrapping my mind' around the metaphor (analogy?) the author is attempting to make between WW-2 POW's tunneling out of a Nazi POW camp and Christians and the Christian Church living and functioning in post-modernist America today. Those who belong to Christ are the ONLY FREE people living in this society. Also, those who belong to Christ have the life-giving message of the Gospel which is able to set the prisoners of Satan's prison house FREE. Christians are not the ones trying to 'tunnel out' of an un-seen spiritual prison. Christians are the ones with the key to open the prison doors! Seems to me the author is looking at this situation thru the 'wrong end' of the telescope! Christ has made us MORE than conquerors...not 'earthworms' trying to burrow from out of a prison.

Rick Perry's Bold Border Move

The General in charge of the National Guard troops that were sent to the Mexican Border by Rick Perry has stated that his troops are there for 'observational purposes' only. No interdiction or attempts to stop the flow of illegals, no apprehensions of illegals or arrests of illegals....OBSERVATION purposes only. Rick Perry's 'bold border move' is a pitiful and useless attempt to garner votes and boost his own political capitol.
Peace will come to the Middle East (and the rest of the world) when the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, returns to this earth to rule and reign from His (earthly) father David's throne in Jerusalem. Not a moment sooner. Everything else is posturing and empty words leading up to Armageddon. In 2000, the Israelites under Barak bent over backwards and twisted themselves into pretzels trying to make peace with the Palestinians, and the Palestinians walked away and chose war. Why? The Palestinians are simply un-willing to acknowledge the Jewish State of Israel's right to exist.

The Coming Christian Revolt

How do you describe the glowing colors of a sunset over the Grand Canyon to a person who has been blind from birth? You can't. How do you describe the beauty of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' to a person deaf from birth? The magnitude of folly and futility described in the two scenarios above involving the deaf and blind is approached in column's such as this where people of the Light and people of the Darkness engage in 'dialogue' over subjects upon which they have no common ground and no possibility of compromise or understanding. What concord has Christ and the devil? What fellowship has light and darkness? Absolutely NONE.
"As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as you in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God has concluded them all in unbelief, that He might have mercy upon all." Romans 11:28-32. Read the entire chapter of Romans 11 for the Apostle Paul's full development of this idea, which is Scripture's explanation why the Jews often, bizarrely, seem to oppose their own best interests. The true Christian shows mercy to the Jewish people in their unbelief and rejection of Christ, knowing that God will eventually fulfill all His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob- and David, including establishing them in their own land. The fake Christian (those who practice empty religion without the love of God) feel they are doing God a service by persecuting and oppressing Jews.
