TCW Minute: Lessons from the Kavanaugh Nomination (Week of Oct. 8, 2018)

2018-10-08T14:03:34+00:00 Oct 08, 2018|

Lessons from the Kavanaugh nomination.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

After weeks of drama, including accusations of sexual assault, protests, and non-stop media coverage, the Senate narrowly voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

There are many lessons here.  One is that elections matter.  Imagine what kind of judge Hillary Clinton would have nominated had she been president.  Consider Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation if Republicans hadn’t held a slight majority […]

TCW Minute: The Power of Accusation (Week of Oct. 1, 2018)

2018-10-04T16:55:34+00:00 Oct 01, 2018|

The power of accusation.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

According to those who work with him, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, has lived an upstanding life.  But very late in the confirmation process, an accusation was brought forward that Kavanaugh, 36 years ago when he was 17, sexually groped a 15-year-old girl.

Even without corroborating evidence, the damage has been done to his reputation.

Revelation 12 […]

Is President Trump making America great?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Great nations typically have a strong military, prosperous economy, and domestic security and equity.

President Trump has strengthened America in many of these categories.  But Christians should pray for him to set a better moral and interpersonal example.

Psalm 2 says: “Take warning, O judges of the earth. Worship the Lord with reverence … Do homage to the Son, that He not […]

TOPIC: Is Trump Making America Great?

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.  Proverbs 14:34

Back in August, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stated, ”We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

This is the sentiment of many on the political left, who view America as historically and structurally racist against blacks, sexist against women, intolerant toward Muslims and other non-Christians, bigoted toward homosexuals and transgenders, and not nearly helpful enough to […]

TCW Minute: Independence Day and Socialism (Week of July 2, 2018)

2018-07-06T20:01:17+00:00 Jul 02, 2018|

Why the demand for socialism?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Independence Day is this week, commemorating the US colonies signing the Declaration of Independence from the British Empire.  Our Founders believed in limited government and individual freedoms.

Today there is a growing demand for the opposite—socialism.  The dictionary defines socialism as, “In Marxist theory, a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.”  Almost half of Millennials […]
