I have been the Prodigal Son many times, but as of last night I realize I have been the older son more so lately. Here, take a look:
NOTE: This devotional is dedicated to my friend Sharron Angle
America needs redemption but I believe the church is like a shopper with a box full of coupons who never shops; that shopper is just a collector. The pulpits across America say we need revival in this land yet will not preach in a manner that brings revival. Too many Christians call for revival and all the while they are looking upon lost people thinking those can be revived.
Sunday my pastor said something that sent my mind a whirling. It was in effect, “You always remember the last time you ever spoke or saw someone, but you never realize it is the last time when it is happening.”
As many of you know Steven Curtis Chapman and his family went through a terrible ordeal a while back. They lost their little girl in an accident; the details I will not go into. Losing a child is a terrible thing no matter the age, but losing one so young to me seems almost unbearable.
Can you imagine being able to trust an elected official?
Folks, it is time to get on board the Angle Express because the train is leaving the station tomorrow.
Well my dear friend Mark Levin wanted me to come on the show and tell his audience what I thought of Connecticut Democratic Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal “misspeaking” about his Viet Nam service, or lack thereof.
We have been looking at the uselessness of political pragmatism; useless because it doesn’t work to borrow a phrase from Steve Deace. When we look at the political landscape it can indeed be discouraging. We hope for greater things for our nation and when that hope is diminished we tend to despair and become desperate. Oh but we should wait on Jesus!
NOTE: I want to thank so many of you for your kind notes and prayers; they truly do sustain me. I dedicate today’s devotional to John Haskins and Gregg Jackson, two men who are battling the worldliness of the church and the cancer it has become. It was they who sent me the videos below.
John Haskins is the former associate director of Massachusetts-based Parents’ Rights Coalition and former proprietor of Underground Journal. The following is a commentary he sent out in an email on May 6, 2010.
I wrote the following in a blog post last September titled “There Souls Are Tethered To Their Bodies”:
I’m not sure but I believe the Lord is going to have me write more on pragmatism; we shall see…for now let me say that our eyes are sometimes our worst enemy.

Take a close look into this man’s eyes…
He does not believe in democracy.
