Without Hope You’re Hopeless
Listening to the lies of the politicians as presented by the prattle of the biased it is easy to lose hope in a secular sense. My hope in an eternal sense is founded on the rock of an unshakable faith in Jesus, and so it cannot be shaken.

Real Rebels and the Counter Revolution
Think ofAmerica’s Founders. These were real rebels. Sam Adams agitated against the imposition of taxes.
