The writer of the Book of Hebrews in the New Testament gives a very difficult but encouraging truth: “The LORD chastens those whom He loves.” No one wants to be chastened.

In the wake of the most successful Pulpit Freedom Sunday to date, a look at opponents who have commented publicly about the event in recent days shows that they are still attacking it for something it’s clearly not.

Speaking at the National Press Club in late September, black pastor Bishop E. W.

Let's play (SET ITAL) Imagine an Alternative Universe (END ITAL). Suppose that Rep. Paul Ryan had said that Joe Biden had "sullied the religion that he and I share." How many days of the news cycle do you suppose would be dominated by the story?
