President George H.W. Bush led our country with some impressive achievements.

During his four years, Bush 41 offered Poland special assistance, which resulted in that country having free elections and ended single Party Communist rule there.

He strongly condemned the Tiananmen Square Massacre and suspended the sale of weapons to Communist China.

It was during his Presidency the Berlin Wall fell.  Read the rest of this entry »

What’s at the Heart of Millennials’ Preference for Socialism?

By Dr. Mark Creech

November 29, 2018

A little more than 40% of millennials today say they prefer socialism. To me, this is the most troubling indicator of a dark future for America if it’s not turned around.

What would make this younger generation unimpressed with freedom or the great costs paid by so many brave souls to secure it? They must not want freedom or appreciate it. They would rather trade it for a socialistic dream and the empty promises of a man-made utopia, something which has always historically ended in a nightmare and dystopia for dozens of countries.

‘Providence? What’s That?’ Belief in it Necessary for Thanksgiving

By Dr. Mark Creech

A millennial, she introduced herself to me as my server at one of my favorite restaurants where I’m a regular. I asked her a few questions about her background to get acquainted, one of which was: “Where are you from?” She said she was from Upstate New York, an answer that prompted my follow-up question: “What precipitated your move to North Carolina?” She replied, “Well, you might find this hard to believe, but I was eager to move away and experience the world. So I closed my eyes, randomly pointed to a place on the map and it turned out to be Raleigh.” “Wow,” I replied, “That was a gutsy thing to do.” I then welcomed her to the Tar Heel state and said, “I’m glad providence led you here.” Read the rest of this entry »

Cannibals, the CAL Insider, and a New Website

Reader of the CAL Insider,

Here’s a little levity about an important matter.

A big corporation hired several cannibals. “You are all a part of the team now,” said the Human Resources Representative during the Welcome Briefing. “You get all the usual benefits, and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat, but please don’t eat any of the other employees.” The cannibals promised that they would not.

Four weeks later their boss remarked, “You folks are hard workers, and the company appreciates you. I’m quite satisfied with your performance. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Would any of you know what happened to her?” The cannibals all shook their heads, no.   Read the rest of this entry »

Vote, and Vote Biblically

The late Milton Berle used to say as a part of his comedy routine:

“Since perestroika and glasnost, the Russians have changed their electoral system. A man went in to vote and was handed a sealed ballot. He started to tear it open. An election official said, ‘What are you doing, Igor?” ‘I’m opening the ballot. I want to see who I voted for,’ said the man. The election official replied, ‘Don’t be foolish, you’re not supposed to know. We vote secret ballot in this country.’” Read the rest of this entry »

The Son’s Rising

Thursday morning on my way to work, I looked toward the Eastern sky and saw the sun in its splendor breaking the horizon. So taken by the sight, I snapped a picture of it with my phone.

Malachi 4:2 says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”

The great Gospel light that streams from Christ is the “sun of righteousness.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Christian Action League (CAL) wishes to express its sincere thanks for the support of its ministry.

The CAL, the oldest Christian public policy organization in the state, places such matters as the sacredness of home life in the roles of a husband and wife, the precious gift of unborn children with their inherent right to life, the right of every person to practice his or her faith freely without government interference, far above popular emerging trends.

Turkish Court Releases Pastor Brunson to Return to America

Friday, a Turkish Court released North Carolina pastor, Andrew Brunson. The court convicted Brunson of terror-related charges, but released him taking into account the time he had already served in prison and his good conduct. It also lifted his house arrest and travel ban so he could return to the United States.

The charges against Brunson, which he denied, were always unsubstantiated and the U.S. State Department argued that he had committed no crime. North Carolina U.S. Senator, Thom Tillis (R) stated the only thing Brunson was guilty of was sharing his faith with those who would listen.  Read the rest of this entry »
