After a three hour hike through ancient Philistine country, we were able to see Samson’s homeland. To the left is the area Samson hiked as he ignored God’s call to help those who were enslaved to the Philistines.   Samson […]

Jotham in Judges “Christians must be involved in politics and public service.”

posted by chadhovind

Judges 9:7-16 is a parable delivered by a man who saw his family slaughtered by mercenaries. Jotham is shocked that the people of his nation are seemingly unmoved by injustice, the killing of innocent life, and corrupt leadership. Jotham realized […]

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Man Who Thought the Church Should Be the Conscience of the State

posted by chadhovind

I recently read the massive book about Dietrich Bonhoeffer.   It was an amazing read.  It inspired a new teaching technique at our church where we took 500 slides of his life and put them to video.  As a life […]

Bizarro is to Superman as Marxism is to Christianity

posted by chadhovind

  Karl Marx was an enemy of liberty. The foundation for his worldview began with the belief that humanity is God. With that notion in place, “we” mere mortals determine right and wrong. And the greatest expression of human wisdom […]

Rich and Poor BOTH Need The Gospel

One of my favorite artists is a woman named Joan Steiner who composes “normal” scenes from everyday household items. Here is one example: If you zoom in, you see the towers are recorders. The bushes are turnips. The walls are […]

Zimmerman Trial, Godonomics, and the Rule of Law

posted by chadhovind

I think one of the most important problems in this case is “presumed omniscience”. Everyone who was not there presumes that they know exactly what happened. What we need more than anything in this case is some humility. We weren’t […]

In the book of Judges, Jotham challenges his fellow villagers to step up and serve in the public square. He challenged them to act with both protection and conviction. It takes guts to do this. It takes conviction to step […]

Why the Pope and the Bible think Socialism is Evil….

  I must admit that I always hated group projects. Though they were intended to teach work ethic, team dynamics, and interpersonal skills, I learned to despise them.   Why? As an “A’ student, I was always placed in a […]

Darwin + Marx = Corruption The moral of the movie, “IN TIME”

posted by chadhovind

I went and saw the new movie In Time. It’s a fascination sci-fi. It shows the natural implications of Social Darwinism’s evil ethic of Survival of the fittest. In this marxist/socialistic utopia, government owns business and takes from the poor […]

Commodities are the Canary in the Coal Mine

posted by chadhovind

  As governments try to water down their currencies in a WWF style matchup of “my currency is worse than your currency,” it will be the middle class and poor that get body slammed. Commodities are continuing to rise with […]

Why the economic recovery isn’t real and who’s to blame?

posted by chadhovind

The political parties want us to blame Obama or Bush. The want us to demonize Donkeys and Elephants.   The real problem is much much deeper. The face of our real problem belongs to a man named John Keynes.   […]
