Our Public Response to The True Texas Project Controversy
Recently, several articles published by Robert Downen and Juan Salinas II from The Texas Tribune sought to do damage to a True Texas Project event being held next month. Massey Campos and Mike Sonneveldt, from Self-Evident Ministries, are slated to be keynote speakers at the event, both before and after the breakout sessions. This event, a 15-year birthday celebration, will host speakers covering several major topics. The themes of the break-out sessions include titles such as "Multiculturalism and the War on White America", "Great Replacement Theory", "The Case for Christian Nationalism", "Is Christian Zionism Biblical?", and more. Of course, these topics make great fodder for those in the progressive camp. The issues are spicy enough to bait activist journalists and leaders… read more
 

The History of Liberty

The History of Liberty
The History of Liberty We tell ourselves that if we are in Christ, then we are free. But do we understand what true liberty means? Do we understand that liberty was a gift from God given as a right? To show you the development of God-given liberty in Western civilization, I won’t start at the beginning. Instead, we’re going to start with a document that every American should love and cherish. The Declaration of Independence Our Declaration of Independence makes quite a powerful statement. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men,… read more
 

The Founders and Slavery

The Founders and Slavery
Founding Fathers and Slavery One thing stops people in their tracks when discussing the founders. Some of our founders owned slaves. However, some of our founders never did. Some stood for slavery. Many did not. Even though the topic is extremely nuanced, the 1619 project and similar “historical” theories believe slavery stood as the sole driver for Independence. After all, how could men who talk of “liberty” and “freedom” possibly believe that holding other people in slavery would be acceptable? Many people want to believe in the founders and what they stood for, but the specter of slavery stands in their way. We want to give you a resource to begin to unravel this major issue and give you peace of mind that our founders were men—just like us. They were imperfect and barely… read more
 

Founding Fathers and Religion Quotes

Founding Fathers and Religion Quotes
Have you wondered about the founding fathers and religion? Do you ask yourself whether the founding fathers believed in God or if they believed in Jesus? Even though each man had his own beliefs, a consistent theme can be found in many of their quotes. Whether they discussed providence, a creator, God, divinity, or more, they referenced a higher power and authority. Founding Fathers and Religion Samuel Adams “We have this day [fourth of July] restored the sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.” -Samuel Adams John Adams On September 7th, 1774, Revered Jacob Duche read Psalm 35 in front of the First Continental Congress then broke into prayer. … read more
 

American Government Introduces Legislation for Antisemitism Monitors

American Government Introduces Legislation for Antisemitism Monitors
You thought the worst of it was over. We watched the protests on college campuses and allowed the news of it all to blend in with the noise surrounding our everyday lives. After all, we have a 24/7 news cycle that continually brings things to our attention and then erases that with the next big story. However, the college campus protests and colonization (see what I did there?) are not subsiding. Instead, they are growing and spreading as students reach their last days of school before summer break. It Gets Worse Even though we may hope for a burn-out of this “pro-Palestine” fire, we will be sorely disappointed. Not only will the fire continue to spread and grow in the summer months, but the government is now getting more and more involved. This will not end… read more
