A funny thing about caravans. They move. In the weeks before the midterm congressional elections, the Democrats and the media chastised President Trump for the attention he paid to the caravan of thousands of migrants moving steadily from Central America, through Mexico, toward the American border.
  • Occupational licensing laws force Mississippians to spend time and money to receive permission from the government before they can earn a living. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 19:7-25
    This is an important passage in our understanding of the law of God. By the “law” of God, here I mean the 10 commandments, which are a summary of the moral law of God. God will give Israel the law in the context of what we read here in chapter 19. The vivid images in this passage are intended to make an indelible impression upon us.
  • In Katowice, Poland, all the signers of the 2015 Paris climate accord are gathered to assess how the world’s nations are meeting their goals to cut carbon emissions. 
  • TAYLOR/The Democrats are coming!
    Let this be a clarion call to Madison County much like the one Paul Revere echoed in the dead of night. 
  • DUNCAN/The Blessing of Esau
    Turn to Genesis 27:30-46. In Genesis 27:1-29, we saw God's goodness and sovereignty overrule man's willfulness and sin. As you may recall, Isaac and Esau plotted to thwart God's counsel. In addition, Rebekah and Jacob plotted to deceive and usurp Isaac’s authority. Although Jacob received the Lord’s blessings, God will discipline him for his sinful actions.
  • DUNCAN/A Blessing Stolen
    Turn to Genesis 27:1-29. This story is a sad story. Everybody in this story comes out looking bad. Their sins are found out as God reveals this whole incident in His Holy Word. However, this passage also highlights the grace and the sovereignty of God. The passage can easily be divided into four parts. First, we see Isaac's plan to bless Esau in verses 1-4. Next, we see Rebekah's plan to see that Jacob is blessed in verses 5-13. Then, we see Jacob carrying out Rebekah's plan in verses 14-25. Finally, we see the fruition of the oracle that God had given at Esau and Jacob’s birth in verses 26-29. 
  • Joe Biden is a gaffe-prone 75-year-old Washington veteran — who is exactly what Democrats need.
  • EDITORIAL/Nooses at the Capitol
    Leading up to yesterday’s U.S. Senate runoff election, race was injected prominently, especially after two nooses were found by WLBT near dawn hanging on trees outside the state Capitol Monday.
  • EDITORIAL/The real face of racism
    This is what a real racist looks like, to our liberal friends sopping with emotion after the election. Until you know the difference, with all due respect, please sit down and be quiet.
  • Mass migration “lit the flame” of the right-wing populism that is burning up the Old Continent, she said. Europe must “get a handle on it.”
