Evolution and the Great Woodpecker War of 1981
- By Mike Scruggs
Part of a Series on Intelligent Design
My experience with woodpeckers has taught me that Darwinist evolution is bunk.
A few months before Ronald Reagan was first elected president in 1980, my wife and I purchased a newly built, two-story home in a wooded area of Cary, North Carolina. Energy conservation was all the rage, so we were happy with its rustic, utility-bill-reducing, cedar siding. The first warm days of spring are said to be the season for beginning war, and so it was. I took my wife and two boys on a short vacation to Gatlinburg in April of 1981. When we returned, we found that war had been declared.

What’s Missing in Church?
- By Ben Graydon
If your church were not there, would anybody miss it? If so, what would they miss about it?
When you go there, are you excited – thrilled, even – at the reflection of Jesus that you see in the face of others, and do they see that same reflection in you? Or do you talk about the weather, last Friday’s ball game, the new bull, or Uncle Andy’s gout – anything but the One Who built His body (ecclesia) upon the rock of Himself?

If someone asked you what a “mission house” is, what would you describe? I think we would all agree that a mission house is a place where people are ministered to, and a place from which missionaries go out. But what does one look like? Having spent eight years in the Southwest, my first mental image is one of those cute little Spanish missions. Perhaps you would tell about a church or an inner-city outreach center.
But what about your house? Have you ever pictured your family’s home as a mission outpost? Recently our pastor preached about our homes being gospel mission houses and I gained a new appreciation of the concept. We can not only use our homes as places to minister to people, we can see them as places from which to send out our family as missionaries to the community.

It’s about culture.
Guys, wear your hair “too” long, and you’re a rebel. That goes back to the 60s and 70s. How long is “too long” depends: it’s relative. And if someone says, “Well, Jesus had long hair!” that guy just doesn’t get it. (See, if He did, it was OK back then; it wasn’t culturally relevant. [But, no, actually, others would say, Jesus’ hair was always short enough to pass hair check - a very modern military look - while everyone else’s around him was longer, at least over the ear.] My point. Culture.)
Nowadays it’s OK for women to wear pants, but not so long ago it was – My goodness! Talk about rebellion! Cultural.

Evangelist Alveda King: Genocide and Eugenics are Death Care; Injustice Anywhere...
- By Alveda King
British Prime Minister Theresa May is promoting foreign aid to Africa. Her so called "aid" is laced with abortion and chemical/artificial device laden death care. Chelsea Clinton is touting this same eugenic/genocidal death care agenda as an economic boon. Not to be left behind in advertising death care, Oprah Winfrey is telling women to "Shout Your Abortion!" What is the world coming to?

UK Tops Sweden as Sexual Assault Capital of Europe
- By Mike Scruggs
The UK is the Most Dangerous Country for Women in EU
It is difficult to compare crime statistics from country to country, but it at least gives us a 40,000-foot altitude overview of the dangers of foolish immigration policies. Just plot the highest concentrations of recent Muslim migrants in Europe and with just a few exceptions you have the countries where women are most exposed to sexual assault and rape. According to a September 6th Daniel Greenfield article in Front Page Magazine and European Union sex crime statistics collected by Emma Beswick and published in World News on November 24, 2017—Which EU Countries have the Highest Rate of Sex Crimes—the UK has edged out Sweden in sexual assaults.
