Is the Term – “Pro-LIFE” – Correct ?

There is, of course, a raging controversy in America sparked by the Supreme Court decision regarding the return of states' rights in the area of abortion. It will be one of the many major watershed issues in the 2022 elections later this year and, perhaps, remain a point of separation in...

Gavin Newsom – Billboards and the Bible

Fox News - “Christians slam Newsom for 'disgusting' pro-abortion billboards quoting Jesus: 'Satanic'…  Some versions of the billboards, all of which urge women... to come to California to get abortions, advertise the state's easily obtainable abortions by quoting Mark 12:31, where Jesus says, "Love your neighbor as yourself. There is...

Hijacking the word, “Evangelical”

An LGBTQ author I have a great deal of respect for recently wrote a post on Medium that contrasted Gay Christians vs. Evangelical Warriors (which was the title if you wish to find it). In that post, he offered his perspective that Evangelicals have lately become more militant. Further,...

Disney’s  Next Step Toward the Abyss 

HuffPost published an article Tuesday that shocked me, something that has reached a very high bar these days. It was not on the bane of Ultra-MAGA Republicans, the need for Federal abortion legislation, or justification for an open border.  It had nothing to do with QAnon or Jan 6th or pregnant men. It...

Reflections from a 70-year-old Biblical Christian

With an approaching 70 years on this earth (next January), perhaps I could offer a more longitudinal perspective than many on where our country has come from.  As I have mentioned on a few posts over the last year, the illustration of the frog-in-the-pot has great relevance as we look...

57% of Americans Say Civil War Somewhat to Very Likely

This maybe a clickbait title but sadly the numbers are not a typo. YouGovAmerica Polling A recent poll from YouGovAmerica was conducted among 1,500 US adult citizens last week with the following alarming results.  Looking back - 66% of Americans polled, not surprisingly, believe that the political divide in America has gotten worse since...

Coercion in Group Evangelism

Evangelism is at the center of much of the controversy between Christians and the secular world. Those who don't believe in God, or at least the God of the Bible, reject the notion that Christians have a right to freedom of speech that includes telling others about what Jesus...

12 Quick Answers on the Supreme Court – Abortion & Biblical Christians

There has been a great deal of controversy and confusion associated with the recent decision by the Supreme Court regarding what was considered by many to be settled law in the case of Roe vs. Wade on the subject of abortion.  Much of the rhetoric in the media and elsewhere...

The Statistical Truth About Gun Violence in America

There is a constant flow of media rhetoric on gun violence in America. It happens every time a mass shooting occurs, which sadly elicits more mass shootings. The reality is that gun violence is not accurately represented in media reporting. Every day over 300 Americans are shot and 124 die in gun related...

Why Are Biblical Christians Disliked or Even Hated

This post is a continuation of "Why Do Evangelicals Hate Unbelievers?" based on reader responses. The objective is to further clarify and expand the flip side of the first article, focusing more on the very logical reasons why unbelievers have such distain for Biblical Christians. Webster defines the word...

An Excuse to Hate

Critical Race Theory is for oppressors Disclaimer — as with most controversial topics, not all members of any group or race are guilty of anything. I know many whites, blacks, Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics, etc. who are not racists and don’t seek to be oppressors — but there’s always a...

Repenting of Repentance

Why deconstruction was rare in the early church The word Backslider comes from the Hebrew word מְשׁוּבָה, which means to turn back. Over the years, this word has lost some of its meaning and become inadequate. It is now something we joke about and use in everyday language. However, by...

In Search of E.T.

The truth is out there, but how will you know unless you look? David Knott I was watching a documentary by Prof Brian Cox recently and some of his words jumped out at me, so I wrote them down. The documentary series is called, “Brian Cox’s Adventures in Space and Time”....

Christian Presence at Abortion Clinics

I responded recently to an article written by a very well-meaning author on the subject of Christian presence at Abortion Clinics. His premise was that we should be caring for women in their neighborhoods and, in the event of their pro-choice decision to abort, we should be offering support...

Sexual Assault and the Southern Baptists

I have been a part of the Southern Baptist Convention for 25 years and write extensively on the integration of a Biblical Christian Worldview and our contemporary society. On May 23, 2022, the independent Guidepost Solutions report detailing known sexual abuse within the denomination was published. To summarize,  The report, commissioned by the...

A Very Different Christian view of Abortion

There is a theology I just discovered that tries to offer a cogent Biblical Christian justification for Abortion.  It begins with the view that God is omniscient (all knowing), which is true. Therefore, God knows who will abort their baby before bringing it to term. Consequently, under this view, God...

Crushing Prosperity

Are you ready for reality? I hope your freezer and pantry are full and you’ve got a 1000-gallon tank of gasoline and another one of home heating diesel in your back yard. Because if you think gasoline and food are expensive now, wait a week or two and watch the...

Paganism, Prosperity, and the Modern Church

Are we really that different than the Israelites? God’s people are fickle. We know the truth, but the battle with our fallen nature is ever-present. Have we ever truly stopped worshiping these false gods?! We have de-personified them and erased their names, but their worship is still very prevalent in our...

Why Do Evangelicals Hate Unbelievers?

Christians are called to “love thy neighbor”.  Often  that is interpreted, both inside and outside the church, as “let’s all get along and accept each other just as we are”. The Bible says we are called to live at peace with everyone (Rom. 12:18) and to honor and follow...

Bipolar Nation

Viewpoint is everything One Dimensional Society Oftentimes, we lump people together as either-or and we tend to put that in extremes. It’s a one-dimensional view of society that ascribes people a position based upon their political ideology, based largely on party registration. If you’re not in line with Democratic talking points,...

Media Payola

Competing Narratives Try this experiment. If you belong to a gym, watch CNN and Fox side by side. I noticed a while ago that these two cable news networks diverge completely on almost every subject — especially the economy and covid. So, how do we know which we can trust? I...

The 3-Step Deconstruction Process for Christians

Over the last nearly two years I have monitored the process of Deconstruction of our Christian worldview. Many define the term “deconstruction” in a favorable light, often in order to suit their underlying objectives. Those in the pro-deconstruction camp would say that they have finally broken away from false...

The Umbrella Principle

How to have a realistic impact when you are surrounded by needs Hard Christian Truths Ngole’s eyes rolled back, and his body slapped the ground as he fell from the wooden stool and onto the cold concrete. We rushed to care for him thinking he had some medical issue. When he...

What Has Caused The MASSIVE Spread of Christianity?

Weird Ways Christianity Spread. Christianity is one of the world’s three largest religions, with over 2.4 billion adherents across the globe. I do not like to use the word religion, because Christianity is not a religion; it is a relationship between you and your Heavenly Father. I only use it so...

Why the Media Lies to Us

We’re surrounded by propaganda because we believe it Nobody trusts the media today and with good reason. The media are almost without exception lying to us. Why do they lie to us? Because we’re not paying attention and we prefer it that way. First, we believe myths The media foster a set of myths regarding...

“Homosexuality” – Inserted in the Bible in 1946

I wrote an article on Gay Salvation from a Biblical Christian Perspective which received some extended comments. One of the more interesting responses was from a reader who informed me that the word “homosexuality” did not appear in Bible translations until 1946, thereby challenging the notion that it was accepted as...

Three Ways To Stand Firm In Troubling Times

Beach waves & shifting sand Have you ever been to the Carolina beaches? Because of the shallow shoreline, you can let the incoming waves wash over your feet. When the waves go out the sand is drawn out from under your feet causing your footing to become unstable. It’s a...

Saturday Morning at the Abortion Clinic

Every Saturday, they meet at 9 am in a parking lot within walking distance of the clinic. Each week it’s a different group, typically represented by one of the churches in the area. The numbers of individuals range from 12-25, sometimes more. After a brief orientation and prayer, they...

Persecution – Politics – Christian Takeover

The idea for this post began with my shock at the response of a reader, who was critical of an article I wrote on "Christianity Collapsing in the US". Here are some statements from him, spread over a few conversations. "I have no issues with people who actually follow...

Gay Salvation from a Biblical Christian Perspective

The Pulse of America in brief — Media | Politicians | God

Science vs. Scripture

I read an article from a Christian writing on the inability to reconcile science with his theology. He used a number of examples, such as the effort of those who try to scientifically justify the parting of the Red Sea. His basic premise was that they were incompatible, and...

Explaining ”Woke” to a European

I have had a running dialogue on Medium with a liberal atheist European (J...) for sometime. It has spread over multiple posts with back-and-forth comments on a number of topics. We have been respectful and curious toward each other's beliefs. One of those recent conversations had to do with...

Why do Pastors get Involved in Politics?

I wrote an article, “Robert Jeffress had Trump speak at 1st Baptist Dallas”, in early January. As is often the case, discussions on Medium continue long after a post gets published. Yesterday I received a comment from a reader who used to attend a large church that openly supported...

The Satanic Temple – A Social Organization?

The Satanic Temple (TST) made a name for itself In 2021 by putting a display of Baphomet, a twisted creature with a goat head on a sub-human body, in the Illinois capitol building. As a Christmas decoration, it sat in swaddling clothes next to a creche of Jesus in the manger. This is not...

Conversations with Atheists and Deconstructionists

I have responded to about 8 readers a day who have commented on our articles posted on Medium. These conversations have impacted my views on many issues. My Biblical Christian theology has been strengthened while my view of the lostness of our country has sadly been confirmed. Medium is...

The Coming Stress-Induced Pandemic

Health issues According to England’s National Health Service, there is a “second pandemic” coming. “Nearly ten million people in England, including 1.5 million children, are projected to need care for mental health issues such as psychosis, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.” This is no small number and certainly, no conditions...

China, Cryptocurrency and the End

On February 25, 2022, China's Supreme "Peoples" Court established the use of cryptocurrency for fundraising as illegal, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. This is not the first ruling by the court restricting crypto. Back in 2013, the government banned their banks from dealing in bitcoin. Further,...

Religious Freedom Under Attack in Finland – Who Cares?

Applying Reasonableness to the 2020 Election Results

Part 1 – Christianity & Culture – Qualitative Results

January of 2022 marks the one year anniversary of BCWorldview.org (BCW). Its focus was, and continues to be, a discussion on the intersection of our culture and a Biblical Christian Worldview. This effort has expanded into daily devotions, guest authors writing on similar topics, podcasts, and daily/weekly email newsletters....

Born-Again Christians say Jesus Not the Only Way to Heaven

I recognize that much of my writings speak to negative issues in the world. I try to reflect back on God's love and grace in the midst of current and pending trials for Biblical Christians and our failing and splintered culture. However, since our focus is on the intersection...

Social Med Ban – What is the Fix

On January3rd, 2022, Facebook advertising permanently banned Heroes of Liberty, (publisher of children's books on historical figures) from all future advertising campaigns. After conservative backlash, they reversed their decision within hours. Earlier the same day, Rand Paul announced he was closing his YouTube account due to past COVID videos being removed. Yesterday Majorie Taylor Greene was permanently banned permanently from Twitter and temporarily from Facebook for expressing her views on COVID and the 2020 Presidential election. 

What’s Happening to our Churches ?

With so much happening in America these days, one can only use COVID as an excuse for so long. To that point, Christian churches have seen a significant decline in attendance due to the pandemic. For those that survived, one unexpected outcome was the forced technology upgrades that put...

Abortion – What 7 Countries are we Aligned With?

The Seven Countries The Seven Countries who allow...

At 69, I’m Changing Sides

At 69 years old, I have changed my political affiliation from Conservative Republican to Conservative Independent. There, I have said it, and feel good about it. For those few who made it this far, thanks for listening.

Christians, Trump, Antivax, and the Right

I received the following response from a typical reader who equates Christians with Right-wing politics, Antivaxers and Trump. "The decline of Christianity in America is totally expected. the dominant American form of Christianity, evangelism, has all but merged with right wing politics, antivax insanity, and Trumpism." Below was my response: I...

UN Sculpture and the Bible

According to a press release from the UN, it symbolizes a “Guardian for International Peace and Security” and currently sits outside the Visitor’s Plaza. According to the artist, it represents the fusion of an eagle and...

What Is A Worldview?

It seems appropriate to offer a definition of what a worldview is, given that the word is part of our name, “Biblical Christian Worldview.org”. In a prior post, I explained the reason we felt compelled to add the term “Biblical” rather than simply a “Christian Worldview”. However, a true...

Pedophiles – Remain in the Closet

It has been amazing to see how our country has changed over the last few years. In many ways, we have become more accepting of others’ varied actions and beliefs. In other ways, such as most traditional dogma, we have become less tolerant. What is without question, we, as...

What Once Was Bad, is now Good

There have been so many taboos broken over the last few years. Opinions, terminology, and behaviors that were considered totally unacceptable just a few years ago are now not only allowed by most, but applauded by many.

Conservative Media Not to be Trusted

Producing Lazy Socialistic Narcissists

Ok... let me admit at the outset that this post rubs against the guardrails of the editorial objectives of BCWorldview.org. There are no references to Christians or Biblical Christians. There are no Scripture verses within the copy. I just needed to offer a counter to an arrogant professor/writer who...

Righteous Indignation vs. Turning the Other Cheek

Writing to Those Who Oppose Christians

“President” Trump Lives On

Why are families not going back to church?

Background in Church Attendance In early April of 2020, Gallup wrote an article entitled “Religion and the COVID-19 Virus in the U.S.” which outlined the megatrends well-established prior to the pandemic.

Christian Unity and Backbone in America – doubtful?

Church Is Not The Problem

I received a Wall Street Journal article from a friend this morning. The title was “Young People Say Disconnect Keeps Them From Church”.

Woke vs. Biblical Christian Words & Worldviews

A Collision in Words and Worldviews There is a collision in this country between traditional and progressive cultures, between the "woke" and "Biblical Christian" Worldviews.

Government Advertising For Internment Camp Specialists

Crazy Conspiracies Over the last few weeks, both the Army and the National Guard have been circulating open positions for Internment/Resettlement Specialists (31E) opportunities.

Top Christian Facebook Pages Generated by Troll Farms

Eric Sentell wrote a recent article entitled, “19 of 20 Christian Facebook Pages Are Fake”. Like so much on the internet these days, I took it to be exaggerated, at best.

Where Should Biblical Christians Stand on the COVID Vaccine

The rhetoric from the Left is that Republican conservatives are the enemy of herd immunity. Though this is not the case, there are a substantial number of Biblical Christians who are resistant to taking the vaccine. I would respectfully argue that the underlying reasons for their response, though perhaps...

Media Bias in America

There is power and prestige in owning and managing media outlets that shape public opinion. Conservative and Liberal broadcasters are contently contradicting each other, often with unprecedented vitriol. These sustained disagreements are clear evidence that one or, more likely, both are at best shading and at worst lying in...

Secular Blowback And The Biblical Christian Response

Why does Christian blowback exist? It's simply because many people, even among the carnal-Christian community, consider Biblically-based morality to be hateful and prejudiced. Of course, the two most divisive points are right-to-life and opposition to gay marriage (and all its iterations). However, these two flashpoints only serve to magnify...

Was America founded on Christian Principles?

Where did the “Separation of Church and State originate?

As Afghanistan Goes, So Goes America

There will be many books, studies, and congressional committee reports written, as well as endless reporting and media analyses, looking back on what happened in the month of August, 2021, related to the upheaval in Afghanistan. A Biblical Christian perspective will have many facets based on the need for...

The Gospel Makes Us Brave!

In the 2000 plus years since the resurrection of Christ, no Christian has ever taught or been taught that loving your neighbor was wearing a mask or participating in a lie. No Christian was ever taught that loving your neighbor meant avoiding them when they were sick or leaving...

Black vs. Gray Areas Of Life –

Abortion, Sexual Immorality, Women in Ministry, and CRT As Biblical Christians, we need to approach clearly anti-Christian views differently than the gray areas of life. We need to decide for ourselves what views are non-negotiable vs. those hills that are not worth dying on, for the sake of our own assumptive...

America, 2021 And Beyond

No one can predict what the economic climate will be in the U.S. much beyond 2024. Longer range speculations regarding scientific and Orwellian technologies can be offered with some confidence, however there are too many interdependent variables at play to forecast what the US economy will look like beyond...

Does America Exhibit Systemic Racism

Definitions The best way to answer this question is to define the term. “Systemic Racism” has been used repeatedly in the media to mean whatever is convenient at the time.

A Christian Response to Climate Change

As Biblical Christians, we need to carefully pick our battles.

Biblical Christians And The Supreme Court

The importance of this process of clarifying the law cannot be understated. This is why there was so much controversy over former...

Who Are We Praying To As A Nation

Right now, the conservative news cycle is briefly focused on Biden’s National Day of Prayer (NDP) proclamation. There are endless references to the fact that he left out the word “God” from his speech. When we use the word "god", deeper question is, who are we really praying to as...

Over time, they established...

National Day Of Prayer – Then And Now

Historical Roots According to Wikipedia, The National Day of Prayer began countrywide in 1775.

That was...

Backlash on Liberal Theology -Media To The Rescue

In the midst of all the Equity Executive Orders pressed by the President, book banning, school name changes, and the House passage of The Equality Act, one might think that our country has been lost.

Stand Up For Our Country Or Take A Knee For Its Injustices?

As Biblical Christians, this is a valid question. Where should we stand in this continuum of tension between, “Stand Up For Your Country”, the slogan coined by Bill O’Reilly, or “Take a Knee for its Injustices”, the visual campaign started by Colin Kaepernick? Obviously, there is so much material on...

Israel / US Relationship – Deteriorating Rapidly

The relationship between Israel and the United Sates is deteriorating rapidly. Put simply, my response to that trend comes from the end of John 4:22, “salvation is from the Jews”.  A Lifeway poll showed that 80% of evangelicals believe that the creation of Israel was fulfillment of prophesy. The continuation...

Christian Socialism In The Bible?
