The Obergefell v. Hodges decision in biblical perspective

By |July 5th, 2015|

 (By Brad Hughes, Centennial Fellow) The US Supreme Court decision on Obergefell v. Hodges is a clear indicator that our judicial system is badly broken, a clear reminder that the court opposes the Judeo-Christian foundations upon which the nation was founded, and a clear omen that more moral and legal confusion is on the way in America.

Twenty Fifteen: Here’s what one informed observer sees coming

By |January 5th, 2015|

(Centennial Fellow) 2014 was the year of unravelling for President Obama as his party received a historic drubbing at the election polls, his administration was plagued with scandals and incompetence, and his international diffidence troubled allies and emboldened foes. 2015 will see a further progression of the Obama legacy: an increase in the $18 trillion debt that can’t be repaid, more division within the nation and between the governing parties, more brazen defiance regarding separation of powers, and a destabilized global political environment where US leadership is woefully lacking.

Why Christianity is exclusive and that’s good

By |December 7th, 2014|

Christians must embrace and defend the exclusive claims made by Jesus of Nazareth despite growing opposition in America from secularists, pluralists, universalists, and other religious worldviews, such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. There is growing cultural pressure in America from pluralists and universalists to assert that all go to heaven, all behaviors are acceptable, no one can judge, and social justice (equal outcomes for all) should be a societal goal. Excepting the reference to heaven, secularists are typically congruent with these goals. As the claims of Christ differ substantially from the pluralists, universalists, and secularists of our time, it is prudent to examine the dichotomy of preference and truth claims, the laws of logic, and what Jesus actually said in an effort to speak truth to the world, represent Him accurately, and honor Him faithfully in word and deed.

Impeach a president? Check the Bible

By |July 30th, 2014|

Impeachment is the process by which an official of the government is charged with criminal action. Over 10% of the world’s nation have impeachment provisions.[1] The US Constitution established the process by which impeachment is conducted in the United States. Article One of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power of impeachment and the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. The Constitution defines impeachment at the federal level and limits impeachment to “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States” who may be impeached and removed only for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”[2] […]
