October 22nd, 201003:23 PM ETHaving lived under a dictatorship, I know the tactics dictators use to control people only too well. Chief among them is control of the media. The messaging and the headlines come down from on high and any journalist who dares to challenge the government "line" is dealt with severely. Coming to the West, and in particular the United States of Amer...
October 18th, 201012:15 PM ET“When I die, I may not go to Heaven. I don’t know if they let cowboys in. If they don’t, then send me home to Texas, ‘cause Texas is as close as I been.” (popular Country song) What is it about Texas, anyway?

October 13th, 201011:14 AM ETI remember back in the late '60s or early '70s, Germaine Greer and many of her feminist cohorts used to appear on Australian television and "pile on" Christianity as an oppressor of women. Coming fresh out of the Middle East into the West and knowing how Christian women are lovingly treated in comparison to their Muslim counterparts, I wanted to s...

Ac...
October 04th, 201003:24 PM ET “Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.” 2nd Timothy 4:14,15 Burundi is a tiny country nestled in the midst of East Africa. Only a few short years ago close to 300,000 people died here in a 12-year civil war, but now it...
October 01st, 201010:58 AM ETIs it a sin not to vote? First, let's define sin. The Bible has five different usages of the word "sin." Most common among them is "missing the mark."
