What America needs is Jesus

NSA spying on us is laughable

Time to stand up for freedom

To the editor:I am dismayed by the lack of coverage of the awesome events of this past weekend (Oct. 11-13). Thousands of patriotic Americans stood up and said "enough!" of big government, "no more" loss of our liberties. Thousands converged on Washington, D.C., and thousands more held events ...

Repentance and regeneration

God didn’t make a world of robots

To the editor:David Keranen is mad at God (or somebody) for not making a permanently perfect world. We don't know why God didn't create a world peopled by cheerful robots. He chose to give people choice, and many chose sin. God allowed that sinful world to be complex and painful rather than ...
