The Crucifixion of Pastor Scott Lively

Written by J. Matt Barber on Thursday, 20 November 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

The legal attack on Pastor Scott Lively should have all Americans concerned, because it utterly overturns and destroys the First Amendment.

The Crucifixion of Pastor Scott Lively

"Remember what I told you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also." –John 15:20

What the 'Gay Marriage' Debate is Really About

Written by J. Matt Barber on Monday, 17 November 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

The common law, natural law and reality itself preclude any man, any court, any government, even state governments, from presuming to redefine the institution of marriage to exclude the necessary element of binary male-female complementarity.

What the 'Gay Marriage' Debate is Really About

It’s called Pandora’s Box.

And the Supreme Court just opened it.

U.S. Funnels Billions to Child-Beheading 'Freedom Fighters'

Written by J. Matt Barber on Friday, 14 November 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

While violent Islamists murder children and others in the Middle East, others, at home in America, do the same every day with funding from the U.S. government.

U.S. Funnels Billions to Child-Beheading 'Freedom Fighters'

It’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys anymore. You’ve seen it in the news. It has shocked and horrified the civilized world. Christians and Yazidis, by the thousands, are fleeing for their lives in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere as devout followers of the “prophet” Muhammad, aka, the “Islamic State,” continue to brutally slaughter these “infidels” on the run, even torturing, dismembering and beheading children as their parents are forced to watch.

The Magical Land of Progressitopia

Written by J. Matt Barber on Sunday, 02 November 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

In the land of fruits and nuts, up is down, black is white and all that is good is really, really bad.

The Magical Land of Progressitopia

There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much wished it could be. The former were called the Trads, and the latter, the Progs. It was the Progs who held dominion over this great land, and so it was they who wrote, or re-wrote, her history.

Limbaugh’s 'Jesus on Trial:' The Verdict is in

Written by J. Matt Barber on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Books, LifeStyle, Opinion, J. Matt Barber

If you’re a faithful believer, Limbaugh’s masterpiece will strengthen your faith. If you’re a faithful non-believer, it will weaken it. Either way, your soul will be the better for having read “Jesus on Trial.”

Limbaugh’s 'Jesus on Trial:' The Verdict is in

Attorney, author and columnist David Limbaugh is a man after my own heart. He’s also a man after my own mind. That is to say, as both a fellow member of the bar and follower of Christ, I tremendously appreciate how David approaches the hot button issues of the day. He carefully probes them within the framework of an objective, lawyerly and evidential analysis. He is a master communicator and never fails, in any case, to deliver deeply persuasive closing arguments in the court of public opinion.

How Christian Kids Should Deal With 'LGBT' Peers

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

How should Christian children and teens interact with peers who either identify with, or are believed to engage in, a lifestyle marked by homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors?

How Christian Kids Should Deal With 'LGBT' Peers

Note: It is for columns like this that I created a “Hate Mail” folder in Outlook.

None can deny the fast-rising popularity and approval of the “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender” (LGBT) lifestyles. Most especially, perhaps, the “bisexual orientation,” which has become rather fashionable and, hence, more frequently practiced among today’s blindly “tolerant” millennial generation.

I’m Wanted for 'Hate Crimes' in Canada

Written by J. Matt Barber on Sunday, 10 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Freedom of speech is a legitimate and accepted natural human right. It's been outlawed by the tyrants running the show in the formerly somewhat free nation of Canada.

I’m Wanted for 'Hate Crimes' in Canada

It seems I have some liberal knickers in a knot north of the border.

Finding Joy Amid World’s Chaos

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 05 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

The enemy of man knows that his time is short. A spirit of antichrist has come upon the world. It has come to deceive and it has come to destroy.

Finding Joy Amid World’s Chaos

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.” – Matthew 24:6

Israel: The Palestinian People’s Greatest Ally

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 29 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

The liberal media is painting Israel as the enemy of the Palestinian people. In fact, it is Hamas that is their enemy.

Israel: The Palestinian People’s Greatest Ally

Israel is not tame.

But she is good.

The Coming Christian Revolt

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 22 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Christians must peacefully come together, lock arms and redouble our resistance to evil. Even when that evil is adorned with the presidential seal and signature.

The Coming Christian Revolt

From behind a smoking sniper rifle high atop his ivory tower peers the secular-”progressive.” He surveys his many victims, strewn across the American landscape below and mockingly sneers, “War on Christianity? What war on Christianity?”

Left Moves to Outlaw Christianity

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 15 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Hobby Lobby hasn’t put the “culture war” to rest. It’s taken a gavel to the “progressive” hornets’ nest. Break out the popcorn and Jujubes. It’s about to get interesting.

Left Moves to Outlaw Christianity

The mask is off. All pretense has been dropped, and the anti-Christian left’s boundless depth of hatred for individual liberty, our First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) is now on full display.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was Right...Sort of

Written by J. Matt Barber on Monday, 07 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

As we Christians and conservatives celebrate with chest bumps and high fives, we remain bound, gagged and blindfolded while these “progressive” fascists reload. The next volley of cultural Marxist lead is but moments away.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was Right...Sort of

While reams have already been penned examining the implications of last week’s Hobby Lobby decision, most of what’s been written, particularly in the liberal press, has missed the point entirely.

'Justina’s Law' Introduced in Wake of Pelletier Nightmare

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 01 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

This is the story of a child, Justina Pelletier, who faced 16 long months of child abuse and incarceration at the hands of both Massachusetts government officials and callous medical personnel at Boston Children’s Hospital.

'Justina’s Law' Introduced in Wake of Pelletier Nightmare

It’s hard to determine where the tragedy begins and the travesty ends. It’s a story that has gripped and enraged a nation. It’s a sordid tale of governmental tyranny, child imprisonment and endangerment, harmful and unethical medical experimentation, as well as a number of gross conflicts of interest.

The Top 8 Things to Think About

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 24 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Look at your life. Life is hard. Look at the news. In our fallen, sinful world, evil swirls about like a violent dust devil, clouding the air of absolute truth and muddying the waters of pure grace that flow to eternal life through Christ Jesus.

The Top 8 Things to Think About

It seems the world has gone mad, and it has. Relativism rules as up is down, black is white and that which God calls evil is called good. All forms of sexual immorality are celebrated and deceptively tagged “human rights,” while God’s design for marriage, family and sexuality, along with true human rights, are systematically trampled to accommodate disorder and sin. Innocent children are slaughtered at will in the safety of their mothers’ wombs, while demonic political systems rooted in the pagan traditions of Islam and secular humanism stack the bodies of tens-of-millions like cordwood.
