One of the most common questions I get asked is this: "Who are you?"
Well, I would rather let the issues take center stage, but I don't mind telling you a little bit about myself.
My name is Michael and I am just a regular guy who is married to one of the most wonderful women in the world. I have an undergraduate degree in Commerce from the University of Virginia and I have a law degree from the University of Florida law school. I also have an LLM from the University of Florida law school. I once worked for some of the largest law firms in Washington D.C., but now I mostly focus on trying to make a difference in the world.
I do not belong to a political party. In fact, I rip both the Democrats and the Republicans pretty good. I am a very strong Christian, but I believe that most of the churches in America have gotten way off track. I believe that God is raising up Christians that will do things the way that the first Christians did things.
I am also a writer, a speaker and an activist. If you would ever like me to contribute to a book or speak at a conference please let me know.
Someone once told me that life is like a coin - you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once. I believe that this is going to be one of the most dramatic eras in all of human history and I want my life to have meaning and purpose.
Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, one of the most important things to me is love. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.

The Most Important Thing
There are many people that come to this site that are curious about what I believe and about what I stand for. Well, I am a Bible-believing Christian. Unfortunately, most people do not know what Biblical Christianity is these days. For a detailed explanation of what I believe, please see my statement of faith.
There are large numbers of people that come to our sites from literally all over the globe. Some of you may not even know about the God of the Bible or that He sent his Son to die on the cross for your sins. The truth is that the God of the universe loves you very much and He wants to have a relationship with you.
Unfortunately, humanity has rebelled against God. The Scriptures tell us that we all have violated God's laws and that we all have sinned against Him. We stand guilty before the judge of the universe.
God could not ignore our sins, but He still wanted to have a relationship with us. So God sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay the price for the sins of all humanity.
If you will repent of your sins and invite Jesus Christ into your life right now, your sins will be forgiven and you will be given eternal life. For a much more detailed explanation of how to become a Christian, please see the following article that we put together on this topic....
Once again, I would be glad to try to answer any questions that you may have. I love to hear from readers of this site.

I. LINKS TO OTHER SITES
This website has relationships with other companies that we allow to place ads and links on our pages. As a result of your visit to this website, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address, and clickstream information.
Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving from this website to another website. We encourage you to read the site terms and privacy statements of these linked sites as their site terms and privacy policies may differ from ours.
I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT: INDIVIDUAL INTERNET CONSUMERS
A. Personally Identifiable Information
Under no circumstances does this website request or collect sensitive personally identifiable information such as an Internet user’s medical/health conditions; racial or ethnic origin; political, religious or philosophical beliefs or affiliations; trade union membership or sex life.
B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Some of these other companies may use marketing technology that allows advertisers to add non-personally-identifying demographic information, such as age, gender, area code, or ZIP code, to the non-identifiable profile data. Thus, there is no direct connection between an end user’s online choices and his or her personal identity. In some cases, this website receives and records partial email addresses of Internet users, only in circumstances where the user voluntarily provided its identity and contact information through the advertiser’s site or third-party marketer’s site. This partial email address does not enable this website to personally identify an Internet rser nor is it shared, sold, rented, or given away.
II. INFORMATION SHARING
This website may release account and any other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to respond to a subpoena or otherwise comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of this website or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.
III. CONSUMER CHOICE AND ACCESS
A. Opting Out.
B. Accessing Consumer Information.
Because they are not directed towards individual Internet users, most sites do not maintain a process for an individual consumer to review and/or request changes to any personally identifiable information collected. Except as provided below, this site does not maintain a process for an individual consumer to access his or her personally identifiable information.
This website employs industry standard security measures to ensure the security of all data. Any data that is stored on this website’s servers is treated as proprietary and confidential and is not available to the public. This website allows access to this data only to those employees or third parties who have a need to know such information for the purpose of effectively delivering this website’s products and services by means of user login and password requirements. No transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of this website to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully.

V. CONSENT AND CHANGES
VI. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY AND SPAM
This website is very sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy and makes every effort to protect the privacy of children using the Internet. It is possible that this website’s products and services may may not be appropriate for or directed at children. Children (persons under the age of 18) are not eligible to do business with us and we do not collect personal information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.

It is our policy to prohibit the sending of unsolicited or “Spam” e-mail by this website or any of our marketing partners. Please note that under the CAN-SPAM Act, an advertiser is required to provide an opt-out mechanism for consumers to unsubscribe from future emails about the advertiser. Although not required to by law, many email marketers also include an opt-out mechanism to enable consumers to be removed from their mailing list. This has caused some confusion for consumers in opting out. The table below clarifies which opt-out mechanism you should use for commercial emails.
VII. DATA PROCESSING/SAFE HARBOR
The European Union maintains strict privacy laws. These rules differ significantly from US laws. To reconcile these differences, the US and the EU have created a Safe Harbor that defines mutually acceptable privacy operations. This website adheres to the Safe Harbor principals.
