There is no shame in ignorance. It is an unwillingness to learn that is shameful.

Natalie Beisner’s beautiful 15-minute testimony

God’s perspective on ignorance

Now brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.Acts 3:17 MEV Ignorance is excusable if you were not afforded appropriate and relevant information.

God overlooked the times of ignorance, but now He commands all men everywhere to repent.” Acts 17:30 MEV Few news sources report unbiased information. Some news media companies promote lies and misinformation. Yet, the few that report factual information have huge audiences and readerships, Tucker Carlson, for example. While working for Fox News, Mr. Carlson had up to 3.5 million viewers. After Fox fired him, Tucker Carlson chose as his new media. As of this posting, he has 7.4 million followers and ‘tweets’ garnering up to 126.1 million viewers.

Why so many followers and viewers? Mr. Carlson’s interviews and reports are politically incorrect, straightforward, and truthful.

Natalie Beisner’s beautiful testimony of becoming a believer in Jesus Christ and accepting the truth of information confronting her daily life is a personal story common to millions of people, including me.

Sheep and Goats

Sheep crave good information. Goats do not.

Natalie Beisner recognized that facts were not aligning with her previous worldview. She wanted the truth.

My Story

I became a Christian in August 1974. Like Natalie Beisner, I began to study the Bible, and I craved truth.

I supported Jimmy Carter for the presidency. He and I were both Baptists, deacons, and Sunday school teachers in our respective churches. I experienced a reality check throughout Carter’s term in office and became a Republican in 1980, voting for Ronald Reagan for the presidency.

Politics, Worldviews, and Religion are Inseparable

The Marxists among us want us to believe the myth of the separation of church and state in our country. Such an idea is nowhere to be found in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, or the rest of the 27 amendments.

Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, in his famous speech before the Constitutional Convention of 1787, noted: “God governs in the affairs of men.” The Biblical basis for Christians to be involved in their government is Daniel 4:17 “…the Most High rules over the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He wills and sets up over it the basest of men.”

Atheism is as much a religion as Christianity or Judaism. Religion is a belief system: a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects

We Christians are commanded by Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19 to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you.”

Knowledge is power. Read and study your Bible, the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and all 27 Amendments to the Constitution. Seek honest news sources. Register to vote and share your choices of candidates with at least 5 persons.

Why 5? “the average number of acquaintances separating any two people no matter who they are . . . is not six but 3.9.
