Carved within the Cultures of Society—Christianity Cannot Be Erased
(By Andy Sanders)

I recently watched a video on the Smithsonian Channel about the ancient world of Pompeii and how Pompeii’s ancient graffiti correlates to modern-day social media. The show talked about how their culture allowed graffiti on most walls as a cultural norm because they didn't have paper and other forms of communication like we do today. Therefore, graffiti wasn't just found in poorer areas like in some regions today—it was everywhere, even on the outside walls of the wealthiest houses of that time. As they highlighted different images and words, I quickly took note of how old the excavation project was. It was amazing to me that Pompeii’s graffiti, carved out by people we don't even know, put messages on walls that still remain in a post-modern world—a digital age. If they only knew that in A.D. 79 a volcano would come and bury their entire region. If only they knew that almost two thousand years later, people would be reading their messages within the walls, what would they have told us?

On August 21, 2016, Hamas (dba CAIR) conducted a briefing in Longwood, Florida led by Hamas leader Hassan Shibly (Director of CAIR Florida). The briefing was focused on the "anti-Muslim network in the United States" and how to keep truthful information ("Islamophobia" according to them) from reaching local and state law enforcement.

Dawah: The Call to Islam is Deceptive, Dangerous and Deadly
(By John Guandolo)

Dawah in Islam is not “proselytizing” to others. It is the “call” or “invitation” to Islam and is a legal requirement before Muslims wage jihad against non-Muslims.

Grounds for Disqualification?
(By Bill NeSmith)

Many of you may have heard about Title 18. Section 2071 entitled, 'Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally'.  You may not readily know the nomenclature but you may have recently become aware of its content.  It was probably brought up amongst controversy.  It seems in the political world, if you can make something so controversial, people will eventually ignore it – making it a ‘hot potato’ subject that has so many opinions that it is no longer possible to clearly assess what is truth and what is fiction.

Oak Leaf #148         Answering the Big Question        

Answering the Big Question 
(by Dr. Jim Garlow) 

I have been asked "the question" so many times regarding Trump or Hillary. By way of background, I have followed every national convention—Republican and Democrat—from the time I was age 9, and have attended most of the GOP Conventions from 1984 to the present. I have watched the news virtually every day from the age of 8. I have never seen anything like what we are observing.

In spite of the unprecedented nature of this election cycle, I will attempt to respond to "the question." I am not demanding that anyone else share my view. But I was asked. Here is my best attempt to answer as I am able to see things at this time:
