Which Path Will You Take?

What path are you on? Where is your life taking you? The previous post ended with a look back. In this second of a two-part series we’ll turn around and look ahead. Many people would do well to become familiar with a little-used English word: prolepsis. According to Britannica, a prolepsis

Why Have Evangelicals Supported Donald Trump?

Donald Trump favored by Evangelicals Like so many in this US election cycle, I assumed that if a moral, principled constitutionalist were to run for president, evangelical Christians would flock to him or her. With 17 candidates in the Republican field—including two with Latin backgrounds, one brilliant black surgeon, one
