In defense of the Bible

Liberals love to talk about all the words that Shakespeare invented. They love to use words based in mythology. But bring up the influence of the Bible and they’ll start hissing like a viper. Everything they claim to be is nothing but a bad imitation of Christianity.

Their delusions have no basis in reality. The Bible has had a greater impact than Shakespeare or Mythology ever could. Not to mention the fact that Shakespeare’s work, with an estimated 1,350 Biblical references, is proof of this.

As for mythology, the Bible tells a story unlike anything ever told, most of all by myth, which is accurately a synonym for “lie.”

The Bible is the most influential book ever written.

From the works of Michelangelo to the films of Quentin Tarantino, the Bible is foundational. One of the most powerful scenes in pulp fiction is when Samuel L. Jackson’s character quotes Ezekiel 25:17.

Reports about the spread of atheism often imply the death of religion, like it’s a victory. But really, what they mean is that they hate Christianity. What they’re doing isn’t religious, it’s POLITICAL.

In reality, it could never lead to a post-religion world, because politics is a child to religion, so the collapse of religion would lead to annihilation.

This is not an exaggeration. Society itself is founded on religion. So while atheism may occasionally APPEAR to be on the rise, there’s no such thing as an atheistic society.

Some of the Biblical phrases that appear in our everyday language include:

  • "eye for an eye"
  • “land of milk and honey”
  • “forbidden fruit”
  • "bottomless pit"
  • "two-edged sword"
  • "God forbid"
  • "scapegoat”
  • “scandal”
  • “Land of Nod”
  • “by the sweat of your brow”
  • “apple of my eye”
  • “fire and brimstone”
  • “ashes to ashes, dust to dust”
  • “a man after my own heart”
  • "broken heart”
  • “wits’ end”
  • “bite the dust”
  • “put words in my mouth”
  • “put your house in order”
  • "nothing but skin and bones”
  • “by the skin of your teeth”
  • “Behemoth”
  • "nothing new under the sun”
  • “a little birdie told me”
  • “rise and shine”
  • “can a leopard change his spots”
  • “eat drink and be merry”
  • “writing on the wall”
  • “drop in a bucket”
  • “fly in the ointment”
  • “four corners of the earth”
  • “see eye to eye”
  • “salt of the earth”
  • “go the extra mile”
  • “pearls before swine”
  • “fall by the wayside”
  • “straight and narrow”
  • “wolf in sheep’s clothing”
  • “blind leading the blind"
  • “the 11th hour”
  • “kiss of death”
  • “give up the ghost”
  • “wash your hands of the matter"
  • "the truth will set you free”
  • “twinkling of an eye”
  • “labor of love”
  • “live by the sword die by the sword”
  • “fall from grace”
  • “fight the good fight”
  • “the powers that be”

You know the famous line from the song Money by Pink Floyd? It’s a rip-off of Timothy 6:10.

But the Bible is even more influential than these phrases.

More than a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, the Bible reveals the foundation of language itself. In fact, the philosophical study of language is based on the prologue to the Gospel of John. In “the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Teddy Roosevelt once said that “no other book of any kind ever written in English has ever so affected the whole life of a people.”

A literary masterpiece written by uneducated men, the Bible is the best-selling book of all time, with between five and seven BILLION copies sold. For reference, an estimated 800 million copies of the Quran, and 200 million copies of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

The Bible is also the most shoplifted book.

It was the first book ever printed, after Johannes Gutenberg chose it as the first book for his printing press. Education as we know it is based on the Bible.

Christianity is the foundation of modern politics and law. Leviticus 25:10 (“Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof”) appears on the Liberty Bell.

When Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech on the National Mall, 250,000 people witnessed a sermon. He referenced four scriptures in the speech. Amos 5:24, Isaiah 40:4, Psalm 30:5, and Galatians 3:28.

Without the Bible, freedom as we know it could not exist. Sure, Plato talked about Democracy 300 years before Jesus came to earth. But Democracy is nothing without the political freedom that Christianity gave us.

The right to a fair trial appears in Deuteronomy 19:15 and Exodus 21:23–25.

Christian monks founded the earliest health care systems using the principles of the Bible as their guide.

The Left’s obsession with destroying Christianity is the same as their obsession with destroying Western society.

They remind me of Daniel 7:25, which describes the Antichrist, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

They speak like children, they understand like children, they think like children. Ultimately, they’re just hypocrites, who may be able to evaluate the appearance of the sky, but not the signs of the times.

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

THESE TOP 10 Founding Fathers' quotes help us remember America's original vision

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.
