Godly Thoughts on Environmentalism

December 6, 2009

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” If God gave mankind the responsibility to […]

A Question of Perspective

November 26, 2009

On this Thanksgiving, as a man of Faith I would like to share a profound thought. Are we living in times of darkness or Glory? The choice truly is up to us. Yes, things are going bad to worse. The rule of man is continually and increasing degree replacing the rule of God. And, I […]

The Real Man-Made God!

September 21, 2009

I had a really interesting…and frightening…thought today.  But, have you ever considered how government is becoming like a god? Let’s think about this for a minute.  When things went wrong, people used to cry out to their deity of choice for relief.  Who do we cry out to now?  The government!  Most religions have some […]

Food For Thought…

September 8, 2009

Here’s an odd thought…considering my sual bent here. We live in a rather frightening environment these days. People make choices, and then blame God for not stopping or correcting their choices when they go bad or have a negative affect on others. Why is God responsible for your choices, or mine, for that matter? He […]

The Growth of Islam in the West

May 27, 2009

The frightening part of our current world is not suicide bombers and Islamic extremists. The frightening part is that, simply due to population growth, Muslims will take over and become the dominant culture of the world sometime in the next 30-40 years. That’s what the numbers say. Check it out. Now, admittedly, this comes across […]

History Repeats Itself In Afghanistan and Pakistan

May 10, 2009

Reports on Friday and Saturday indicated that the Taliban is using civilians as human shields. This article seems to imply that this is a surprise. I fail to understand why it should be. This has been a tactic of intimidation used by every terrorist guerilla warfare group, at least in recent history–Hamas, the Taliban, all […]

Banking, Education…and Islam

May 8, 2009

Despite Ben Bernake’s news of increased consumer spending, things are not what they appear. According to The Economist, consumption will remain in a depressed state for years. Why? Since the early 1980s, spending by households on goods, services and homes has grown faster than GDP, making it the locomotive of American—and global—expansion. By 2006 it […]

The Banking Crisis, Anger and Islam

March 31, 2009

There has been a lot of media hype lately about the financial crisis. And, of course, the crisis has EVERYONE’S attention. But, what isn’t covered, or dealt with openly is the seething anger below the surface. This was best revealed on the Tonight show when President Obama was a guest. Jay Leno described the immense […]

Policy, Medicine and Islam

March 27, 2009

After the report on medical information safety by the BBC, the NYT reports that many doctors question whether the cost of implementing digital records may not be worth it. Two articles, to be published on Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine, point to the formidable obstacles to achieving the policy goal of not […]

Banks, Obama, Islam, and…What the…?

March 8, 2009

Think Sharia Law will not come to the states? Think again. University Bank now has an entire subsidiary devoted to financial products that comply with Muslim religious law, or Shariah. It has done nearly $80 million in Islamically approvable “mortgage-alternative” financing for residential and commercial real estate in 15 states. For the past decade, Dow […]
