- By Randy Page - BJU
Bob Jones University (BJU) President Steve Pettit today announced a new strategic vision for BJU Seminary to spearhead a 500x5x5 campaign to help address a nationwide pastor shortage by putting 500 new pastors on the path to the pulpit in the next five years – and every five years beyond that.
This strategic vision announcement follows Pettit’s April 16 naming of Dr. Alan Benson to a new, expanded role as executive vice president for student development and ministry advancement, joining BJU Seminary Dean Dr. Neal Cushman in the Seminary’s leadership team. Benson has served at BJU since July 2018, as vice president for student development and discipleship.

Oratory for a Time Such as This
- By W.H. Lamb
(With Apologies to William Shakespeare)
(Reference: “JULIUS CAESAR” by William Shakespeare, Act. 111, Scene 11).
PATRIOTS, AMERICANS, COUNTRYMEN, LISTEN TO ME.
I COME TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH, NOT TO BURY IT.
THE EVIL THAT LIBERALS DO LIVES AFTER THEM,
WHEN IT SHOULD BE BURIED WITH THEIR BONES.
SO SHOULD IT BE WITH ALL COLLECTIVISTS.
THE IGNOBLE BRUTES HAVE TOLD YOU THAT AMERICANISTS ARE DANGEROUS;
THIS IS NOT SO, IT IS A GRIEVOUS FAULT,
AND GRIEVOUSLY HAVE WE BEEN MALIGNED.

Dems Pave a Gavel Road to Court-Packing
- By Tony Perkins - Family Research Council
Now we've heard it all. Democrats, who were already the butt of jokes for calling childcare "infrastructure," have done us one better. According to House liberals, court-packing is too! In a tweet, Congressman Mondaire Jones, a New York liberal declared: "Supreme Court expansion is infrastructure." Like a lot of people, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) couldn't believe their eyes. "You just can't make this stuff up," she shook her head. And unfortunately, Democrats aren't. They're on the march to expand the court -- no matter what they call it.

D.C. Statehood A Play to Maintain Senate
- By Eagle Forum
It appears the Democrat majority in Congress will stop at almost nothing to ensure their majority remains a majority. Last Fall it was packing the Supreme Court and today, it is legislation to make D.C. (and other territories) a state.
With a population of about seven hundred thousand, it may seem logical that D.C. should become a state with representation in both the lower and upper chambers. In fact, it simply is not Constitutional to make it a state. Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 enables Congress to govern the District of Colombia. Our Founders envisioned the location of the Federal government to be an independent entity outside of another state. In doing so, the Founders sought to prevent D.C. from pressures and influence by one state government rather than another.
