Tammany Hall as a ferocious tiger killing democracy by Thomas Nast, Harper’s Weekly.

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard

Last week brought with it a couple of major events, neither one of them good for America.  In the first place, there was the passage of the comically, propagandistically names Inflation Reduction Act, an Act guaranteed to increase, not decrease inflation.  Not to mention an Act that sics 87,000 new IRS agents on the American people – more specifically, it sics them on the middle class and small businesses that don’t have the legions of tax lawyers and accountants to fight back against the IRS – an Act that implements parts of the liberty destroying, World Economic Forum, Vatican approved Green New Deal, and an Act that manages to extend Obamacare subsidies passed as part of Covid relief.   

In short, it’s another unconstitutional boondoggle that will do exactly the opposite of what it claims it will do. 

Then there’s the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago.  Many writers have rightly compared this raid to the sort of thing one would expect in a banana republic.  Given the disturbing trend of both the Democrats generally, and the Biden Regime in particular, to politicize justice, this raid must be seen as a continuation of their attempts to outlaw their political opponents. 

One can find many articles in the mainstream and even alternate conservative and libertarian press denouncing both the Inflation Reduction Act and the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  But none of them, in this writer’s opinion, get to the heart of the matter.

Adam Schiff and Liz Cheney of the J6 Committee.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

  • Exodus 20:16

As much as I try not to let it happen, the constant drumbeat of lies promoted 24/7 from every corner of our civilization gets to me from time to time. 

And I really find it is the constant lying about everything all the time by everyone in official positions of power that gets to me the most.

Politicians, CEOs, university presidents and professors, schoolteachers, school administrators, and school boards, federal government officials, state and local officials, legacy media outlets, churches, doctors, hospitals and medical officials, law enforcement, lawyers and judges, entertainers, athletes and professional sports leagues, bankers, and tax-exempt foundations.  In short, every institution in America has become a lie factory dedicated to deceiving us all and promoting a false view of the world.

But the Bible commands Christians not to lie and deceive others.  In the Ten Commandments, we are told, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”  Paul repeated this idea in his epistle to the Ephesians, writing, “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour.”   The Lord Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”  The devil, Scripture tells us, is the father of lies.  And as imitators of Christ, his people are called to walk in the truth.  And no lie is of the truth.

Pope Francis consecrates the world and, in particular, Ukraine and Russia to a demon posing as Mary, the mother of Jesus during a Lenten penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican March 25, 2022. (CNS photo/Paul Haring)

There was a time in my Christian walk that eschatology, that is, the study of the doctrine of end times, didn’t seem all that important.  There were a lot of competing ideas about end times in the popular Christian press, but none of the popular ones that I saw made much of an impact on me.  None of them struck me as compelling.

But the longer I’ve been a Christian, the more I’ve come to appreciate the importance of having a sound understanding of eschatology.

Take the doctrine of the identity of Antichrist.  Although many Presbyterians and members of other Reformed churches may be surprised to hear this, the original version of the Westminster Confession of Faith had a very well-developed statement on Antichrist, leaving no one in doubt as to the identity of this person. 

It was the Pope of Rome.

Westminster Confession of Faith 25.6 originally read,

There is no other Head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ: nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.

Happy New Year 2022!

I had meant to write this post last week, but, as they say, life got in the way.  So here’s the belated version for you. 

As do many, I find New Year’s a convenient time to stop and reflect on the year past and consider what may lie ahead.

In my case, I like to mention upfront that I’m thankful to the Lord God Almighty for the opportunity to write this blog during 2021.  Before I begin each post, I pray that the Lord would grant me the grace to write truthfully, clearly, and in a way that glorifies His name and edifies his people.   Moreover, November 2021 marked the seventh anniversary of my prayer to God asking him to help me write at least one blog post a week.  By his grace I have kept this pace, posting at least one new item every week since then.  Thanks be to God for giving me the strength to do this!

There are times as a writer when I really do wonder if I’m doing the Lord’s will or my own.  Has God called me to do this work, or am I just kidding myself and rebelling against him?  That he has honored my prayers for this blog, that people still seem to get something out of it, and that I continue to enjoy writing are big hints to me that, yes, I am doing what the Lord has called me to do.
