Changing America’s Trajectory Could be as Simple as Tax Reform

September 16th, 2017|

In these days of controversy and political wrangling, we seem to forget that America’s woes from an economic standpoint stem from eight straight years of GDP growth hovering around an average of 2.1 percent. Yes, [...]

Did the Hurricane Distract You From This Major Sign of the End Times?

As Christians, we know how the story ends. We understand there will be a day when a one-world government will lead us into the end times. As His people and believers in God's Word, we certainly understand that God reminds us in His Word of where the world is headed.
