On January 16, 1786, the Statute on Religious Freedom was enacted by the Virginia legislature and it is the basis of Religious Freedom Day.

Letter to the editor: Our spiritual heritage


Consider the situation at the time of the Solemn Assembly called by the Prophet Joel. The people of Israel were guilty of flagrant, unconfessed sin. The sin had not been put away, either.

Letter to the editor: A Muslim for president?


These are exciting times in which to live and serve the Lord. Many people have been imploring God to bring a revival, another Great Awakening, like He did in times past, to heal our land. Recently the question of placing a Muslim in the White House arose. Donald Trump said he would include a Muslim […]

Letter to the editor: Americans need to pray and repent


One of the most exciting trends currently is that there is a growing conviction that we cannot fix ourselves.
