“Politics is downstream from culture.” It is a pithy saying attributed to the late Andrew Breitbart. If this is true, one has to wonder what influences culture so that it eventually influences politics. Continue reading
I recently heard a podcast episode which features a well known, conservative commentator. In said episode, he mentions how atheists frequently engage him and detail their excuses for not assenting to Christianity. According to this commentator, the most legitimate among these excuses has to do with Christians’ lack for fervor. Their alibi goes something like this:
“If Christianity is true, Christians would more zealously act in accordance to their faith. Since they don’t, it means that Christianity mustn’t be true. Therefore, I cannot believe.”
Has the reader ever heard the following declarations or their variants?

“Free will is an illusion ingrained in us all by evolution.”
“Mental disorders are neurological in nature. Chemical imbalances are the cause of behavior deficiencies.”
These and similar notions are different faces of the same pernicious idea – materialism. This concept is demeaning and rejects the ultimate reality of the human essence because it reduces all activity to purely physical processes, including thoughts, emotions and character. The creed’s main goal is to dismiss the Biblical God as the Principal Cause of all and discount His revelation about our origins and makeup.
Recalcitrant atheists are now stating the Josephus’ writings about Christ should be discarded and can not be considered as evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ. Those claims are examined in this episode and proof given that not only can Josephus’ writings be used as extra-biblical evidence to support the proposition that Christ was a historical figure, but also that many atheists will go to foolish lengths to denigrate the historical record pertaining to Christianity.
Even though Marxists will play the innocent ignoramus by pretending that they know nothing about the War on Christmas, the truth is that they are waging it and attempting to repress important information that proves that such a tactic is part of greater fight against the West’s Christian past. Such is the case with the faux celebration known as Kwanzaa. Continue reading
