Is the Lesser of Two Evils Excuse Evil in Itself?

in EDITORIAL by

Many of my fellow preachers and other Christians are refusing to vote this election cycle. Why? They claim both candidates are evil, and therefore to choose the lesser of two evils is still evil. Some refer to 1 Thess. 5:22 as a justification for not voting for the lesser of two evils: “Abstain from every form of evil.” However, there is another biblical concept that I believe some are overlooking. Could it be that refusing to vote for the lesser of two evils is evil in itself? Consider the following line of logic: We are here for a purpose. God created every nation of men, and has determined their “preappointed times” and the “boundaries of their dwellings” (Acts 17:26). The purpose…

‘We’re in a tight spot’

in EDITORIAL by

One of the funniest catchphrases in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? is the saying, “We’re in a tight spot.” It occurs whenever the main characters are in caught between a rock and a hard place, with no seeming way of escape. Well, my fellow Americans, I’ve got to tell you, “We’re in a tight spot!” This election has put us in the difficult situation of figuring out which candidate is more likely to lead this nation in a mutually beneficial direction. To add insult to injury, we also have to filter through all the various charges and accusations that are flying around here at the tail end of the campaign. So, just for kicks, I decided to go…

Today’s Snowflake: Rep. G.K. Butterfield

in SNOWFLAKE AWARD by

Today’s Sensitive Snowflake Award goes to Rep G.K. Butterfield, North Carolina Democrat and head of the Congressional Black Caucus. When Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted, “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to,” Butterfield complained the statement was racist. “The moment an African-American hears the word ‘shackles,’ it’s reminiscent of the era of slavery,” Democratic Congressman G.K. Butterfield said. “We’re at a point now where Donald Trump is out of control. We don’t know what’s next.” What’s next for the politically correct sensitive snowflakes? Banning the word “ship” because slaves came to North America on them? Cotton? Auction? Congratulations, Rep. Butterfield! You’ve earned your…

in IRRATIONAL ROUNDUP by

Today, TheWayfellow.com brings you our first installment of the IRRATIONAL ROUNDUP, a quick look at some mind-numbingly illogical ‘religious’ headlines from around the world. Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner is heeding God’s word by pretending to be a woman Leading off this week’s insanity, writer Lily Burana at Religion News Service says “Caitlyn” Jenner is “doing the Lord’s work” by “showing her [sic] true self” on a new television show. In one of the most absurd paragraphs you’ll ever read, Burana writes, “Caitlyn Jenner, Olympic athlete turned world-class glamour girl, took the planet by storm in April when she sat down for an interview with Diane Sawyer and announced her ongoing transition from male to female.” There are so many things wrong with…

‘POPE CONVERTS TO ISLAM’
…or, How To Avoid Falling for Fake News Headlines

in EDITORIAL by

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.” Being a fan of Lincoln quotes, I think we should trust this one! Some of the more outrageous fake news headlines of recent times: “Pope re-writes Ten Commandments” “North Korea lands first man on the sun.” “Twitter for sale” Sometimes brethren fall for these fake news headlines, and share the stories on their social media accounts. Subsequently, we look a little silly when it is revealed as a hoax. How can Christians identify fake news stories? One writer at Christianity Today gives five tips for avoiding such fake news. I agree with his assessment in general, but I don’t think Snopes.com is always to be trusted. Regardless, read for…

Polyester Sins and Catfish Condemnation

in EDITORIAL by

Last week’s Supreme Court decision about marriage generated two widely-diverse reactions. One camp viewed it as a triumph and a positive step forward while the other saw yet another sign of rapid moral decline. Some supporters of the SCOTUS decision chose to spike the ball by needling those most disappointed by the ruling: Bible-believing Christians. These jabs take many forms ranging from “rubbing-your-nose-in-it” pictures posted on social media to outright hatred. A Christian who is following Jesus’ example and His apostles’ commands will rise above these insults and not return in kind. There is always hope for a change of heart and an opportunity for civil debate (which is in short supply these days). Most disappointing to me was an…

Will Christianity survive?

in EDITORIAL by

by Chuck Webster — Some of the stuff going on in our country frightens me, and from looking at social media and some of my favorite blogs, I don’t think I’m alone. The number of Christians in America is decreasing. There’s racial unrest in Baltimore (and everywhere, it seems). Nine justices in our nation’s capital are contemplating a verdict that may redefine marriage. Laws are being passed that make it illegal to act on your religious faith. Read Full Article

Faithful Fathers

in EDITORIAL by

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate” (Psa. 127:3-5). What an awesome blessing, as well as responsibility, rearing children is! If only more fathers and mothers had a greater appreciation of this gift and took more seriously their God-given roles as parents (cf. Deut. 6:1ff; Pro. 22:6; 31:1ff; Eph. 5:22ff; 6:4).  “Father’s Day” is a day set aside each year to honor… Read more
