  • Two Disgraced Women Who Changed the World

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    December 24, 2014: The New Testament starts with the story of two pregnancies. Disgrace is part of each of them. In one case, disgrace is removed; in the other, disgrace is imposed. But in each, we see miraculous demonstrations of God's amazing grace in offering salvation to all men.

  • An Active President: Obama on the March As the GOP Preps to Run Congress

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    December 21, 2014: Since last month's election, the President has been a busy fellow. He's traveled to China, heralded what he called a "turning point" in American military affairs, "signed a Presidential Memorandum that prohibits future oil and gas drilling in Alaska's Bristol Bay" and land areas near it and announced a new director for the White House Council for Strong Cities, Strong Communities, to boot.

  • Does the Democratic Party Have a Future?

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    December 18, 2014: In a rather wistful, even elegiac piece in the December 2, 2014 edition of National Journal, political analyst Charles Cook describes how leading to last month's election, the Democratic Party "paved the way for their own defeat." Describing as "noble" such priorities as "health care, the environment, and civil rights," Cook notes that "an argument can be made that it is because Democrats have subordinated their traditional focus on helping lower- and working-class Americans move up the economic ladder" that there has been a "decline in support for Democrats among certain groups."

  • What Matters Most at Christmas

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    December 15, 2014: I love dogs. Having had five dogs over the course of my life, and in caring for many other dogs for friends when they're on vacation or whatever, I've concluded that if man is a little lower than the angels, canines are only somewhat behind us.

  • Republicans Becoming the Party of Diversity

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    December 04, 2014: Scan a crowd of Republicans, and a significant majority of those you see will be white. While in itself this is innocuous, it is also unrepresentative of American demographics.

  • Jesus, Adoptee

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    November 26, 2014: Next month, believers in Jesus will celebrate the virgin birth of their sinless Savior. We will think of the annunciation and Mary's hymn of praise, the cattle stall and the extraordinary star in the sky.

  • Why You Should Celebrate Thanksgiving Like a Puritan

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    November 25, 2014: The Plymouth Separatists, Protestant Puritan believers we now call the Pilgrims, were theologically minded in a way difficult for many of us to grasp. "These were biblical theologians," write theologians Joel R. Beeke and Mark Jones in their book A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life. They were "biblical in the sense that they quarried their theology from the Bible, but also biblical in the more modern sense of understanding and being concerned to expound the unified flow of the story of salvation and to see each element of it in its proper place in the story."

  • Why We Should Support Our Leaders But Trust in God

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    November 20, 2014: Conservatives are very pleased with the results of the recent elections. For some, there is the partisan satisfaction of Republican wins across the nation. For others, the Administration's failures in economic, military and foreign policy have caused great concern; it can be hoped that the GOP will take measured steps to redress them, to the extent possible. And for social conservatives, there is the nascent if modest hope that some good things can be advanced and some others be stopped.

  • Religion Remains Essential to American People and to American Public Life

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    November 18, 2014: "In an average week, one-in-five Americans share their religious faith online, about the same percentage that tune in to religious talk radio, watch religious TV programs or listen to Christian rock music. And nearly half of U.S. adults see someone else share their religious faith online in a typical week."

  • Election 2014: A Reward for Gridlock, A Repudiation of the President

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    November 16, 2014: "All politics is national" now, which made this midterm election yet another referendum on President Obama, and it has turned out to be another overwhelming repudiation of the president, who already suffered one debacle back in 2010. This appears to have been a baffling rejection to this supremely detached president ...
