For They Are Stronger Than We Are

Today is the 150th Anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War. It is considered our first modern war; it was by far America’s most costly. The thing that always amazes me, so eloquently and poignantly illustrated in Ken Burn’s “Civil War”, is the courage under fire of the men facing sure carnage.

The Signs Of The Times

The Drudge Report’s top headline in red reads: “Major Tsunami Damage Japan; 8.9 Mag Quake.” There is a picture in the top left corner of the tsunami’s waters flowing through Japan. The sub-headline read, “5th Largest Quake Recorded Since 1900…” “Fires, landslides…” “Cars, ships, buildings swept away…” “4 million without electricity in Tokyo…” “Nuclear plants shut down…” “LATEST IN SWARM…” “33FT WAVE…” “US widens warning to most of Pacific..”

Understanding Underdogma

Over the past 3½ years since losing Eddie, one of the blessings of my life is the friends I have made. In God’s Providence and through Eddie’s article, I was able to meet and become close friends with Mark Levin. And through Mark’s radio show and my occasional appearances there, many of his listeners have befriended me. One of those friends is Michael Prell.

Outward Profession of Godliness

Last night was the last of our revival services and I thank God for showing up in my life. God showed me areas that had become idolatrous. He showed me that although it is wise to plan for the future, that I am not in control of it; He is. As Bro Brad Lowery likes to say, “Can I get an amen?”

Absolute Truth – To Set At Liberty Those Who Are Oppressed

We have looked at absolute truth—the aletheia truth—and we see that Jesus has taught us we can know it and that we can be set free by it. It was His mission…it is the Christmas Story!

A Rare Breed

As a retired soldier, an amateur military historian, conservative pundit, and most importantly a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I am always fascinated with the lives of Christian warriors who answer the call of duty to serve their nation in the military. My beautiful son was just such a man. Like Eddie, I love to bring to light the lives of great Christian soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coast guardsmen.

Beginning with Revolutionary War General George Washington and his most dependable general Nathanael Greene, to numerous Civil War generals , on through to George S. Patton, to name just a few; many Christian men have risen to the rank of general.

Confronting The Spin On The Fort Hood Massacre

Folks, if you remember the coverage of the Fort Hood shootings, you saw a media, including FOXNews with Shepard Smith primarily, refusing to call the attack was it was.

Well there is a new media outlet that some of you are very familiar with because my late son Eddie’s articles were published there as have many of mine.

Here’s To The Heroes

Long before my son Sergeant Eddie Jeffers ever wrote his now famous “Hope Rides Alone”; long before he breathed his last breath on that Iraqi desert floor and was welcomed into the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; he was my hero.

He was my hero because the day before he left for his first tour in Iraq I asked him if he was sure of what he was about to do and he looked at me with an intensity and masculinity I did not recognize in my son and he told me, “Dad, this is my generation’s fight.”

Just Another Patriotic Event

That’s what I said on September 12, 2001. I feared that the outpouring of patriotism and national unity would only be temporary and that 9/11 would be just another patriotic event. I fear I was right for the most part.
