Moms For America for Newsmax.com: Mother’s Day Reminds Us Moms Still Have the Power to Rule the World

What influence does a mother have? It can be hard to see in a culture that actively discourages mothers from raising happy, healthy, patriotic children. It seems our society is determined to teach our kids to hate America, hate each other and hate themselves.

As Steven Covey observed in his 7 Habits of Highly Successful Families,”Even though we can be encouraged by efforts to return to ‘family values,’ the reality is that the trends in the wider society over the last thirty to fifty years have basically shifted from pro-family to anti-family. We’re trying to navigate through what has become a turbulent, family-unfriendly environment, and there are powerful headwinds that easily throw many families off track.”

Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven Western democracies (G7) met Tuesday morning, May 4, for a summit that will probably extend into next week. I expect to see much more news about this G7 meeting. The seven largest economies in the world—Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the U.S. — have come together and are acting as self-appointed leaders of the globalist movement.

They are attempting to discuss the biggest threats from the East: Iran, China and Russia, the three countries that pose dramatic threats to the free world.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes for The Christian Post: Beware of the Me Monster


No Comments

By Dan Britton for The Christian Post

My all-time favorite comedian is Brian Regan. He is funny and clean—a hard combination to find these days. In one of his routines, he talks about running into a “Me Monster,” a guy who doesn’t realize he is doing all the talking for everyone else and trying to top everyone’s story. It’s funny … and convicting.

Identifying other Me Monsters is easy. It’s not hard to spot people who are completely consumed with themselves. Once you’ve met one, you will never forget them. Me Monsters are everywhere. They lurk in sports, schools, businesses, communities and even in families.

After the jury’s recent verdict of the George Floyd case was made public, and former police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of Floyd’s murder, President Joe Biden said that the death of Floyd “ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see” the “systemic racism that is a stain on our nation’s soul.”

President Biden is mistaken when identifying the stain.

Dr. Don Colbert for The Stream: Pandemic Protection: Immune System 101

By Dr. Don Colbert for The Stream

A silent war against pandemics is taking place around the clock, every day of our lives. This war occurs not in government labs or hospitals. Rather, it is happening inside of you and me, even at this very moment. Within every human body on the planet, God has installed the best defense system against viruses, bacteria, and plagues of all kinds. This defensive team is called the immune system, and it is brilliantly effective and capable of adapting to meet new threats.

Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries for Charisma Magazine: The Biblical Way to Counteract the Cancel Culture


No Comments

By Seth Udinski for Charisma Magazine

The idea of “cancel culture” has been propagated exponentially in Western society in the 21st century. In the last year alone, we’ve seen authors, celebrities, athletes, politicians, presidents, historical leaders and even toys undergo severe change or cancellation to fit into the “inclusive” secular worldview.

Cancel culture, at its core, is a form of censorship and revisionist history, whereby anyone or anything can be removed or rewritten from history based on the agenda of those with the loudest voice. This toxicity destroys a nation’s culture and is completely antithetical to the biblical worldview.

Coalition of Christian Outreach for the Christian News Journal: Parents | There’s Hope for Your Great, Scary Expectations


No Comments

By Dan Dupee for the Christian News Journal

If you are a Christian parent of a child ranging from 16 to 23, I have at least one idea of what might make you anxious almost on a daily basis. You might be turning two questions around repeatedly in your head: “Will my child navigate the dangers of post-high school and make a successful transition into adulthood? When my child gets to the other side of college or into the job market, will he or she still be following Christ?” 

At the core of your anxiety is your changing relationship with your child. While your child is navigating his or her most turbulent, life-defining season, you feel ill-equipped to help. Worse yet, you feel your own sense of power to guide your child shrinking at an accelerated rate.

In fact, according to popular culture, your time of influence is past, and your child’s peers are far more important than you are.

Dr. Michael Youssef for The Christian Post: It does not take a village to raise a child


No Comments

By Dr. Michael Youssef for The Christian Post

An old African proverb says that it takes a village to raise a child. The modern-day “village” in this proverb is all of society, including schools, houses of worship, doctors, and businesses, but most of all, government programs. Some have used this idea to advocate for various laws, regulations, welfare state programs, and taxpayer support of “family planning” organizations (i.e., Planned Parenthood).

I submit that it does not take a village to raise a child. God already designed the perfect nurturing environment for a child. It’s called a family. It is pointless to talk about caring for the needs of children while we do nothing to strengthen the family. Children don’t need all this meddling by the “village.” Children need the family. We need to encourage parents how to be parents and how to build healthy families. That means we need to teach moms and dads how to put God at the center of their families.

Youth For Christ for Charisma Leader: More Than 55 Years Later, This Song’s Lyrics Ring Truer Than Ever

By Dan Wolgemuth for Charisma Leader

It was in early 1965 that Jackie DeShannon recorded the hit song, “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”

Burt Bacharach and Hal David had co-written this musical masterpiece. The song was planted in fertile soil during a season of controversy over the Vietnam War and the escalating Civil Rights push. A year later, Dionne Warwick released her own version.

Love. For everyone. Is it really what the world needs? Certainly, there has to be more.

Dan Celia for Newsmax Finance: $15 Minimum Wage: A Move Against Ingenuity


No Comments

By Dan Celia for Newsmax Finance

President Joe Biden says his proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour will lift many low-wage workers out of poverty, but many businesses and economists warn it will cost jobs during this very important time of recovery from the pandemic.

Biden endorses a plan to more than double the wage noting that, at $15 an hour, a job could support a family of four above the poverty line. The question is, what job might that be?
