October 2010 – Is The Tea Party Movement Another “Great Awakening?”

By Dr. David M. Berman The Tea Party movement is truly a powerful force. When this movement is compared to others such as the one under Ross Perot, it is clear that the Tea Party movement is much stronger. Both the Republican and Democrat establishments have been forced to acknowledge that the Tea Party has motivated, empowered, and given voice to Conservatives in this country. Primary election surprises have sent shockwaves and the shakeup continues……so what? Does it really matter in the long run? Some may feel that the goal is to stop Obama and the liberals from continuing down […]

September 2010 – Theistic Evolution and “Christians”

By Dr. David M. Berman It seems clear that many in the “Evangelical” world are now allowing themselves to leave room for the possibility of Evolution. They say that if we have evolved it is the Creator who started and guided the process. One glaring example is Regent College Old Testament Professor Bruce Waltke who explained his position that evolution was not in conflict with the Biblical principle of a Creator. He makes the point that God could have caused and guided the evolutionary process (Source -Barriers to accepting the possibility of creation by means of an evolutionary process – […]

August 2010 – The Anointing, The Love, The Word

By Dr. David M. Berman Isaiah 10:27 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” What is this word “anointing” as referenced in Church language? What are the implications concerning the use of the word “anointing”? It is as so many sacred biblical words and passages are in the modern Church. The Sacred things so often are relegated to a place of casual meanings that permeate our modern thinking. It is […]

July 2010 – Political Speak and B.P.

Ok here we go: “I am very glad you asked me this question and therefore after much consultation with the experts it is clear that action is necessary in the following areas. 1)      A crisis study to ascertain the needed information in order to take proper action. 2)      Continued consultation with the best in the field in order to plan the move necessary to reach our desired goal. 3)      Clearly focused (like a laser beam) leadership that takes into consideration all of the various aspects of the situation along with expert recommendations. I have, in keeping with my grave concern […]

June 2010 – Acts 20:24

By Dr. David M. Berman Acts 20:24 “But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” As one who has studied the Bible for 25 years, I believe this is the most powerful passage of scripture concerning the issue of personal commitment to the cause of Christ as a believer. This is both my favorite sanctification passage, and the verse that most convicts me of […]

May 2010 – The Constitution…Who Cares?

By Dr. David M. Berman We hear a lot about the Constitution today. The “Tea Party” has been bringing up the Constitution along with many talk radio personalities like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity. I have been writing, and speaking about the Constitution for years. But two questions must be asked; 1) Who cares? & 2) Why should we care? These are very important questions since it is clear that at least 50% of Americans are clueless (I am being generous, there are a lot more that are clueless) about the principles of liberty and the […]

April 2010 – Does Culture Matter?

By Dr. David M. Berman We all know the move toward “multi-culturalism” that has taken over the thinking of our most important institutions. The education, entertainment, news media, and political establishments have given themselves over to the idea that all cultures are of the same value. The idea then translates into a strange marriage of the culture and the ethic make up of the culture. In other words; if a person speaks anything negative about an aspect of a culture, that then is defined as being bigoted against every individual in that culture. This is the idea of political correctness […]

March 2010 – Bananas Anyone?

By Dr. David M. Berman Most of us have heard the term “Banana Republic.” This is a pejorative term that describes the worst aspects of what have been known as “undeveloped or developing,” nations. All one has to do to see a banana republic in the present day is to look at Venezuela, or Cuba. These Nations are run by corrupt communists who have turned already corrupt countries into even worse nations. They put the capitol B in banana republic. There are certain characteristics to a banana republic that are a bit eerie when compared to our present national situation. […]

February 2010 – There Are No Atheists In Hell

By Dr. David M. Berman It is quite clear that the topic of Hell is one that many Preachers today are afraid to talk about. The “Emergent Movement” in particular has an aversion to speaking about it. Sometime over the last number of years the trend has gone away from preaching about the Savior who will save you from Hell fire to a so called “kinder, gentler” gospel. Hell is indeed a four letter word that the church should speak. What is the reason that modern American Christianity seems afraid to speak of it? Is it that people may be […]

January 2010 – Sheeple

By Dr. David M. Berman The only thing more discouraging than President Obama’s answers to the moral, political, cultural, and economic situation in America are the numerous “Sheeple.” A sheeple is a person who has the body and soul of a person however at the same time has a sheep’s mind. They are led by emotions and are looking for a political leader to tell them what he is going to do for them, and why they should not trust their fellow Americans who are prosperous. The sheer numbers of Americans that have no understanding of the principles of liberty […]
