4 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound[a]teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
The government-driven demand for corn ethanol is ruffling feathers with another government program intended to preserve prairie and wildlife habitat. The result? A bird-hunting industry that’s going down. For four decades the federal government has actively supported ethanol, which is made by fermenting and distilling corn, as a cleaner energy source that le […]
A disorder unheard of 35 years ago appears to be epidemic today: 6.4 million children ages 4-17 are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Youth revolt. Americans under 30 are concerned about the future and are pointing their fingers at the current occupant of the Oval Office for their bleak outlook, according to a survey conducted by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. In fact, 47 percent of millennials said they would like to throw President Barack Obama out of office, with 52 percent […]
Pope misfires. I don’t want to get in a shouting match with Pope Francis or the 1 billion Catholics on the planet, but his 55-page “apostolic exhortation” on economic issues leaves many of us scratching our heads.
