Nena Arias | January 4, 2021 “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) You and I are in a culture clash war. These are dark times. People don’t know if they are coming or going. What is desperately needed is the light of truth

Nena Arias | December 14, 2020 What has caused such warped thinking in America, of all places? Can you believe what happened after a Minnesota nurse that works with coronavirus patients put up Christmas lights on her home. A cowardly anonymous neighbor left her a letter chastising her because the

Gary DeMar | November 20, 2020 (American Vision) – The usual dissenters come out of the woodwork every October to disparage Columbus and November to attack Thanksgiving. Here’s the latest: Sen.

As I write this article, our annual Thanksgiving celebration is just days away. For most Americans, this holiday evokes a warm feeling of being surrounded with family and friends around beautiful food-filled tables and a sense of gratefulness to Almighty God for all of his bountiful blessings.

The post-election disarray looks and feels like an atomic bomb exploded and the debris is everywhere. This was a long time coming. Are you surprised to hear that? You shouldn’t be surprised. This kind of breakdown doesn’t happen overnight or with one or two elections. As a nation we have been in trouble for a very long time. It has been over 100 years to be more exact when we allowed our value systems based on godly principles to begin to erode, thereby compromising our foundation. We let go of the truth and strength that sustained us. When that happens, whether to an individual or a nation, it’s just a matter of time for a demise to occur.

We all have to decide firmly that regardless of the outcome of this general election we will contain our emotions and just work that much harder to reclaim the foundation this country was built upon.

The saying above by Charles de Montesquieu says it very clearly that, for the most part, children don’t spoil on their own until they learn it from someone else.
