The First Amendment Is Being Smothered Right Under Your Nose

By Janice Barlow DOES FREEDOM OF SPEECH START at the top or at the bottom? Are we encased in a cocoon as mindless followers because we have become so jaded to what we should be standing up for? In this article, I will point to three specific examples of what is happening right under our collective noses in this country and how you, by your silence are acquiescing and allowing speech to be stifled.   Let’s start with the Press:    Jim Acosta, while displaying reporter-like aggressive behavior, was behaving…

“At Least He’s Not”…is the Big Compromise in Republican Elections

By Janice Barlow Compromise has been the number one descriptive word surrounding the Republican Party in since the GOP Convention last July. Principles, values, morals, the Constitution, and even the wisdom of candidates in the political arena were compromised in exchange for winning at all costs. Donald Trump won the presidency in spite of his philandering, adultery, cussing, arrogance, relentless lies, trashing of the other candidates and extreme stupidity regarding what the presidency entailed. And in response, all his supporters can continue to offer up is, “At least he’s not…

Motorcycling Ministries – Overcoming The Popular Misconceptions

by J. Lee I love motorcycling. I have loved motorcycles since I was a small child. Unfortunately my mother did not. She was terrified of bikes and bikers. I never heard the end of it in her attempt to destroy my love for bikes. My guess is my mom had a bad experience with bikers she never shared. If it was not a personal experience she lived in the era were bikers were badly portrayed in movies. Maybe she believed what she watched. Scary biker films were in abundance during the 1950-1970’s.…

Where is God? The Importance of Bringing God Back to America

By J. Lee     I’m sure most people have either asked or heard the question ‘Where is God’?, especially in the midst of tragedy. God is not a ‘genie in a bottle’ to go to for granting wishes. God says to come to him in prayer. It’s as simple as talking to him as we would talk to a friend. The good news is he is available to us at all times to strengthen us. His answer could be yes, no or wait. I’m sure we can all agree…

Post Your Prayers Here – The Prayer Post Phenomenon

America is divided. States are not united. Cities are in rebellion. Communities are agitated. Families are struggling. People are hurting. Complete strangers join one or more of the hundreds of prayer groups on Facebook to share their worries and intercede for one another. Prayer posts populate religious and secular sites throughout social media, in recognition and dependence upon Divine Providence. The Bible advises: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and…

God Told us There Would Be Times Like These

By Janice Barlow The Bible, is the go-to Book for millions of Christians worldwide. If it’s not, it should be. The words, “fear not” appear in it 365 times. That’s one for each day of the year. So, as our military approaches the North Pacific, and as President Trump calls for a “secret” meeting of the entire Senate at the White House (a very rare event), what do Christians do? We sit and wring our hands and say, “Oh no, what are we going to do now?” Would it be presumptuous for…
