GUEST: Eric Hovind

Eric Hovind

Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. After watching Hell’s Best Kept Secret by Ray Comfort, Eric came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ with a desire to make Him known throughout the world. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak over 5,000 times in eight foreign countries and all fifty states. Much like a 21st-century Apostle Paul on Mars Hill, in June of 2013 at the dedication of America’s first monument to Atheism, Eric stood to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the atheist community attending its unveiling.

RNS: Is President Trump ‘the chosen one,’ anointed by God?

Is this view of Trump as anointed by God common among Protestants? We put a survey into the field in May of 2019 that assessed the opinions of just over 1,000 Protestant Christians. We asked two questions regarding the anointing of presidents by God.

The first asked if all presidents are anointed by God, while the second asked if Donald Trump was specifically anointed by God to win the 2016 election. In our sample, just 21.4% believed Donald Trump was specifically anointed by God to be president, but that figure increases among groups who believe in modern-day prophets and a God who is active in the daily affairs of the world.


BREAKPOINT: The Children of “Man in the High Castle”

Amazon’s successful series the “Man in the High Castle” portrays a world in which the Nazis and Japanese won WWII.

In one particular scene, a teacher in this Nazi Reich America is discussing Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” when a prim middle school girl asks, “I notice Shylock says, ‘if you prick me, do I not bleed?’ Is the writer saying Jews are human?”

The Nazi student then growls, “We shouldn’t be studying this.”

Stunned and frightened, the teacher replies, “Thank you for that correction. I believe you’re right.”

In a world where fanatical youth have embraced ideologies they barely understand, they are taught to dehumanize and shut down anyone who holds another point of view. Even engaging with “the other side” is to risk your career and livelihoods, so the adults – the ones who are supposed to teach – are instead terrified of not being sufficiently in line.

Does any of this sound familiar?



George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor— and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be— That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Hunter Baker: The Unfortunate Lesson from Chick-fil-A’s Surrender

Dr. Hunter Baker

Union University Professor of Political Science Dr. Hunter Baker joins Paul today to discuss Chick-Fil-A’s decision to end their financial support of the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes after years of protests for LGBTQ+ activists.


Robert P. George on Chick-Fil-A

Robert P. George is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University. He is also frequently a Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School.

Let’s review the bidding.

1. The founder of Chick-fil-A publicly stated his view that marriage is the conjugal union of husband and wife and that he and his family and their business stood by that Biblical teaching.

2. Folks on the left declared him to be a ‘bigot’ and called on people to boycott his business. Wherever possible, they applied pressure, including political pressure, to prevent Chick-fil-A from opening stores.

3. The Cathy family encouraged the Christian community to stand with them and support them, which conservative Christians and other socially conservative people did–en masse.

4. Chick-fil-A’s business flourished financially, despite the efforts of the LGBT lobby and the left to destroy the company.

5. Chick-fil-A included among the beneficiaries of its philanthropy Christian organizations, such as the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, who upheld Biblical moral standards.

6. Then, suddenly, the company announced that it would no longer fund organizations like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian athletes. It said that in assessing its philanthropic work, it would only support organizations that ‘align with its values’—clearly implying that those organizations did not.

7. There is no explanation for this development apart from the fact that the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes uphold Biblical standards of marriage and sexual morality.

8. If there is some other explanation, Chick-fil-A has not provided it, despite requests to do so.

9. Chick-fil-A has announced that it will support Covenant House, which publicly embraces ‘gay pride’ activism and has been praised for it by the pro-LBGT “New Ways Ministry.”

10. This makes clear that Chick-fil-A has established a litmus test for its philanthropy. If an organization holds to Biblical standards of marriage and sexual morality, it will not be funded. By notable contrast, if an organization publicly rejects such standards it is nevertheless eligible for funding.

11. Thus, Chick-fil-A, which asked for and received the support of countless Christians and other social conservatives when it came under attack as a result of its founder’s statements, is effectively validating the black-listing strategy employed by the LBGT lobby–which means that it is also made itself complicity in promoting the idea that to uphold Biblical standards of marriage and sexual morality is a form of ‘bigotry,’ which therefore warrants a company’s (or a person’s) being stigmatized and black-listed.
