This Is Not a Day Care. This Is America.

T

America has become a coddled nation. And a coddled nation is a crippled nation. Regardless of what you might think of President Trump’s recent “fire and fury” rhetoric with North Korea, at least he’s not passing out teddy bears and whining about microaggressions. Meanwhile, with every day that goes by another college snowflake melts down over chalk on a sidewalk or an...

An Inauguration Tale: Dorothy in the Land of Oz

A

My friend Monica Matthews shared this poignant perspective at her site while on the streets of DC at President Trump’s inauguration festivities. As we watch snowflakes shatter shop windows and vulgar celebrities threaten to blow up The White House, keep her encouraging words in mind: I’m in my element. The normal folk.

Shortly after Bill Kristol tweeted on Memorial Day weekend that a candidate was ready to step into the ring, I noted that our focus should be on what matters most—faith-focused communities, friendships, relationships, children, marriages, and thriving families.

Colorado Court Approves Re-education Camp for Christian Baker

C

We are rapidly approaching a tipping point in America. The day is coming, sooner than most think, when we will each have to choose whether to obey God or man, dictatorial bureaucrats or the Constitution, tyrannical judges or our own consciences. The sooner we grasp this truth the better: simply because a court makes a ruling does not make it right. Because a law exists is not sufficient reason to...

As most of you know, Erick has been battling some significant health issues of late, the kind that would cause any of us think about the stuff that matters most in life. Although most posts here at The Resurgent focus on current events, the underlying reason we write here and now is that we care about the stories we will tell there and then—in eternity.
