I voted for Mike Huckabee in the Florida primaries yesterday and I hope his lead in four or five states can hold up until Super Tuesday. I was almost persuaded not to vote for Huckabee over a month ago when ABC-TV ran a story on Mike Huckabee featuring an onscreen graphic that claimed the then-Arkansas governor pardoned a rapist who went on to murder two women in Missouri.
But Huckabee didn’t pardon Wayne Dumond, the rapist who was released by an Arkansas parole board. The ABC graphic read, “Huckabee’s Pardon: Rapist Struck Again After Release.” This blatant distortion appeared beneath the December 5 Good Morning America segment for two minutes and 50 seconds of a three minute plus segment. I suppose I should not be so naive to think that the media won’t engage in lies and distortions to spin the candidates’ records and positions. But shouldn’t there be more of an outcry over this?
The real issue is whether Huckabee “pressured” the parole board to make the decision to release Dumond. I’ve heard Huckabee’s version of the story and some of the parole board’s version. What people have to remember is that if it wasn’t Huckabee’s fault that this parole went forward, then it was the fault of the parole policies established under the prior governors, Bill Clinton and then Jim Guy Tucker who first commuted Wayne Dumond’s sentence.
Hmm … Who to believe? Who to believe?
But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again. I did not have sexual relations … err, I mean … I did not pressure the parole board to release Wayne Dumond. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time – never. These allegations are false.
Since Tucker is dead and Bill Clinton is not likely to be blamed, ABC and “Good Morning America” should at least apologize for lying to viewers with a bold claim that Huckabee pardoned a rapist.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.(We accept PayPal and all major credit cards.)
With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.(We accept PayPal and all major credit cards.)
