Christianity Has Done Nothing Good... or Has It?

Author: Andrew Alleman
The Victory of Faith: How the Spirit of God Built Civilization and Transformed Your World “Give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; make known His deeds among the nations…” -Psalm 105:1-2 “I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I consider the work of Your hands.” -Psalm 143:5 “History is the True Demonstration of Religion” -John Dalberg-Acton, Catholic Historian, (1834-1902) By: Andrew Alleman Its influence is all around us. Human dignity and compassion. Modern science and technology. Origins of human rights and religious freedom. Professional healthcare in every city. Abundant prosperity combined with voluntary charity.

Is Scripture Necessary???

Author: Mike Sonneveldt
The Power of Scripture I've been witnessing a new movement cropping up in the more charismatic areas of the church that I can't help but pause and wonder about. I don't appreciate the church pointing the finger at others in the church, so I'll attempt to avoid doing it. Instead, I want to give a bit of a warning to those of you who are hearing these voices, and to ask you to discern whether it's a pathway that you feel you really should work down. I'm sure the movement is much older than I give it credit for, but I've noticed in the past couple years a new resurgence built of off the charismatic, Holy Spirit experience tangent of the faith. This idea impresses the importance of the rhema word, or active, new, living word of God. The rhema is the voice of the Holy Spirit, who… read more
 

Live the Kaizen Life

Author: Mike Sonnevedlt
Ever find yourself falling down a rabbit hole online? Is the sky blue? Of course. We all have. Our first reaction might be to believe that falling down a rabbit hole means coming across crazy conspiracy theories, like Elvis shot JFK or alien lizard people wrote Shakespeare. Thankfully, I will not be reporting to you about Hitler still being alive in Argentina or bases on the dark side of the moon. My rabbit hole goes deep into the labyrinth of helpful tips, tricks and outlooks on life. While doing research for a book I'm putting together, I rediscovered an idea that I thought was extremely helpful when working towards self-improvement (or personal development if you don't want to sound like a Tony Robbins infomercial). But my research naturally began to modify the… read more
 

Liberty and Education

Author: Paul Garner
LIBERTY AND EDUCATION By Paul Garner, Author of Yearning to Breathe Free If you send your children to Caesar for education do not be surprised when they return as Romans. So many people are wondering what has become of the American education system in this century. What if I told you that it was designed this way 180 years ago? It was not a conspiracy. It was not even a secret. It was the work of true believers done in the light of day and the public eye with all good intentions. It was done by elitists who believed that they knew what was best for children to learn in this relatively young republic. Would you stay with me to the end of this to see what I mean? Ask anyone around you if you were required to read either or both of the Federalist Papers or the… read more
 

We Chose Not to Podcast this...

Author: Mike Sonnevedlt
I debated whether to broach this topic with you. After a long talk, Massey and I decided that it was in our best interest to not do a podcast on this subject. We felt, “What does this win us? What does this get the listener? Is this a positive topic to cover, or are we just giving doom-and-gloom?” After talking it through again (20 minutes before the podcast was about to start...) we decided that perhaps we would be careful on how we broached the topic on the podcast. In that episode, we ended up talking about everything else. If you're interested, it's the “Past Two Years....What Have We Learned?” The original subject matter revolved around the vaccine and some pretty disturbing variables with the side effects. We here at Self-Evident are not interested in fear-porn. We don't like… read more
