Partisanship overwhelming reason

I've been watching bits and pieces of former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, and it is plain to me that partisanship is overwhelming reason and any semblance of jurisprudence. The trial wi...

Glorify God with peace among men

For a year, we haven’t seen anything like the peace on earth mentioned at Jesus’ birth (Luke 2:14). While each political party blames the other for problems, we’re learning much of the...
