Payday Loan Sharks
April 06, 2023

"The borrower is the slave of the lender."

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Newly published information from Lifeway Research shows 77% of self-identified Christians in dozens of states think it’s a sin to lend money to someone who can’t afford to pay it back. Still, few say payday loans are immoral and one in six Christians have admitted to taking out a high-interest payday loan.

The federal government’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says the typical two-week payday loan charges the equivalent of a 400% interest rate.

These “sharks” prey on the poor, elderly, and most vulnerable in society.

Sound the alarm and make sure your family, church, and neighborhood steer clear of this vermin.

“And who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this” Esther 4:14.

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute

Esther, a young girl became Queen of the Persian Empire when Israel was subject to Persian rule. A wicked man named Haman tried to get the King to exterminate all Jews. Esther, a Jew herself, was Queen when this genocidal conspiracy was brought to bear. But her uncle Mordecai put her royal position in perspective.

“Perhaps God made you Queen for this very moment, to intervene on behalf of the Jewish people.”

Like Esther, perhaps God gave you the platform, position and influence you have for this very moment, to stand against darkness. Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.

An Ordinary Giant Slayer
April 04, 2023

David, the son of Jesse, was just an ordinary giant slayer.

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

David’s battle with Goliath is an epic drama where the little boy stands in God’s power to conquer the Philistine giant.

David didn’t awaken that morning expecting to slay a giant. He didn’t stroll in with an entourage after a rugged mountain range training camp like Rocky in Rocky IV. He was just a regular kid bringing his brothers’ lunch. But fully confident in God’s immeasurable power, though he saw Goliath, David never acknowledged him as a giant, saying, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who dares defy the Lord of hosts?”

When regular people are fully persuaded, fully confident in God’s power, giant’s fall.

Perversion Hospitable
April 03, 2023

“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.” Ephesians 5:11 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

With a 68-62 vote, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed a bill to make Minnesota a “sanctuary state” for so-called gender affirming care for minors.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration and, should it pass there, Democrat Governor Tim Walz has already committed to sign it into law once it reaches his desk.

This bill, should it become law, would allow Minnesota’s governmental apparatus to refuse to comply with parents’ efforts to rescue their children from permanent life altering medications and/or procedures if their child made it to MN to request them.

Secret Lies
March 31, 2023

“For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples.” Isaiah 60:2(a) (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

From California, to Idaho, to Maine state lawmakers are working to pass laws that prohibit secreted socialized sex transitions of children at America’s public schools.

All across the country parents are waking up to nightmares in which a public school guidance counselor, a teacher or in some cased an administrator has a developed rapport with their child an encouraged them to “live as their true selves” at school. And the parents, had no idea this was happening.

With the prevalence of this type of deception, please cover your children. God entrusted them to you, not the government or this wicked culture.

Pray and Instruct
March 30, 2023

“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way.” 1 Samuel 12:23 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

When the Israelites finally grasped the gravity of what they’d done in demanding a “king to judge us like all the nations,” they asked Samuel to pray for them that they “may not die” (1 Samuel 8:5; 12:19). Samuel agreed to both pray and instruct them in righteousness.

Christ-followers shouldn’t allow people to manipulate us into co-signing wickedness by saying, “just pray for me.”

We will certainly pray AND speak the truth in love.

Ubiquitous Delusion
March 29, 2023

“They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, Saying, 'Peace, peace,' But there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Tragedy struck The Covenant School in Nashville, TN when a woman, confused about her own identity, entered the school and murdered six people, three of whom were children.

Initial reports concealed the murderer’s confusion. Later reports identified the killer as transgendered, a woman who presented herself as a man. Then, almost immediately, the next comments were… “but there is no evidence of mental health issues…”

A woman says she’s a man… but everything’s fine.

Deviancy-idolatry requires truth be sacrificed, even in the face of tragedy.

May our LORD comfort the bereaved families in TN.

Still Preach the Word
March 28, 2023

“Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.”  2 Timothy 4:2 (NASB).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

As Paul was incarcerated, facing imminent execution by Nero, he told Timothy perilous times were coming. Evil men and seducers would wax worse and worse.

But, he instructed Timothy to continue in what he knew to be true.

Then, he emphatically stated, “preach the word!”

As darkness mounts and wickedness increases, you and I must continue to cling the God’s Holy word and yield to the Lordship of Holy Spirit in our personal lives.

And, we absolutely must continue the preach the word!

We have our orders! Let’s magnify the King!

Complimentary Genesis
March 28, 2023

“Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for the reason for the hope that is in you.”

Many who oppose Christianity target their hostility on our foundation, the Bible. They say it is unreliable because Genesis one and Genesis two are contradictory accounts of the creation story.

In actuality, the two chapters are complimentary and not contradictory.

When Jesus was asked about marriage, He quoted from both chapters one and two, saying that He made them both to be male and female in the beginning. "And for this cause shall a man leave his mother and father and cleave unto his wife."

Genesis one is an overview of the creation story and Genesis two is an up close examination of day six. If Jesus relies on them both, so can we.

Government is not our God
March 27, 2023

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

My name is Abraham Hamilton III, and this is the Hamilton Minute.

What is the proper role of government?

Romans chapter 13 outlines government's function, and it is basically this: to restrain or punish wickedness and to reward righteousness.

Government was never intended to be our savior.  Government is our servant.

As we focus on our civil occupations and our civic engagement responsibilities, let us never forget that government is not our God.  We don't put our trust in it.  We put our trust in our Christ.

As a result, what we want is a government that stays out of our way and leaves room for our church to do our business of fulfilling the great commission.

Fond-a Murder
March 24, 2023

“You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Jane Fonda made an appearance on that beacon of intellectual rigor, The View. During her appearance, Fonda decried the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

Joy Behar then asked Fonda “besides marching and protesting” what else can be done to fight back against Roe’s reversal.

Fonda said, “well… murder.” Initially it seemed her response went somewhat un-noticed by the panel. But when asked to repeat her answer Fonda said simply, “Murder.”

It’s unsurprising that people who want to “fight” for the right to kill people inside of the womb, see killing people outside of the womb as an appropriate solution to advance their political cause.

Capitol Illegality
March 23, 2023

“You shall build a house, but you will not live in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but you will not use its fruit.” Deuteronomy 28:30(b) (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The capital city of the United States of America has now joined jurisdictions in at least five states across the country in allowing noncitizens to vote in local elections.

Five states allow noncitizen voting in local elections for municipal offices or school board. Those states are California, Illinois, Maryland, New York and Vermont. Now, D.C. joins them.

When foreign nationals who have no stake in our nation’s future are allowed to vote, it undermines the importance of citizenship.

It’s almost as if that’s the true goal.

$130,000 Per Day
March 22, 2023

“And he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes.” Haggai 1:6(b)(NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The U.S. Army Core of Engineers has informed the Senate Armed Services Committee that the cancelation of former President Trump’s border wall contracts by the Biden Administration “left a variety of excess materials” and the “total costs to store, maintain, and secure all the materials across all sites is estimated to be approximately $130,000 per day.”

Yep, you heard that right. The Department of Defense is spending $130,000 a day on border wall materials that are sitting in storage.

Yet, the American people are forced to bear the brunt of this record high immigration invasion.

Clueless Kamala
March 21, 2023

“Professing to be wise, they became fools.” Proverbs 1:22 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Current occupant of the Vice-President’s mansion, Kamala Harris, was invited onto Stephen Colbert’s floundering late night television show. I’m sure you weren’t one of the 12 people who saw it.

But, Colbert asked Ms. Harris what specifically her job was. After providing a word salad celebrating Joe Biden’s job performance… right… Colbert responded “… uh, the question was, what’s the job of the vice president…”

Harris’ 2nd non-answer follow up showed she seems to have no idea what her job duties really are.

For many, this is further evidence that she and Mr. Biden are merely frontmen… so who’s really running the country?

The Source of America's Greatness
March 20, 2023

What is the source of America's greatness? Alexis de Tocqueville, a 19th century French political thinker and philosopher, had this exact same question.

This is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

On the heels of the French Revolution, he came to America in 1831 to investigate America's ascendency. In doing so, he found that America's greatness did not lie in her economic system. It did not lie in her banking system. Nor did it lie in her educational system.

He found that America's pulpits, aflamed with righteousness, was the source of America's greatness. He opined that America is great because she is good, but when America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.

Let us pray for restoration of the flame of righteousness in our pulpits.

Principles Matter
March 17, 2023

What would it take for you to compromise your principles?

My name is Abraham Hamilton III and this is the Hamilton Minute.

Recently I heard a statement that went like this, “I don’t think principles matter if you can’t get elected.”

Principles form the core of who you are.  Principles form the foundation of a civil society.

George Washington in his farewell address identified religion and morality as indispensable supports.

“In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness,” George Washington said.

It makes me think of a scripture.  “What would it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his soul?”

What would it profit a man to gain an election yet lose his principles?

Mayflower Angela
March 16, 2023

“But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.” Hebrews 11:6(a) (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Angela Davis, self-avowed Marxist feminist and former Vice-presidential candidate as a member of the Communist Party USA, was visibly shocked when she learned that she was a descendant of pilgrims on the Mayflower.

Davis appeared as a guest on the PBS series “Finding Your Roots,” hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Davis also learned that she’s also a descendant of a slave owner.

These revelations are worldview crushing for a person who’s made a career of segmenting the American population into oppressed and oppressor categories… when she hails from both.

Proper Announcement
March 15, 2023

"And without faith it is impossible to please Him.” Hebrews 11:6(a) (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

After receiving letters from more than 20 Republican attorneys general threatening legal action, Walgreens, the second largest pharmaceutical chain in America, has announced that it will not dispense abortion inducing drugs either by mail or in their physical stores in 21 states.

Those states are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.

Hopefully, Walgreens’ announcement will stir CVS, Walmart, Costco and others to follow suit. With Roe’s reversal, the battle ground to protect the unborn has largely moved to the pharmacy.

Chemical Era
March 14, 2023

"You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, the majority of babies killed in the womb have been murdered by chemical abortions since 2020. Most advocates for the sanctity of human life are familiar with surgical abortions performed by doctors in murder mills. But, since 2020, most abortions are carried out by pregnant mothers ingesting lethal drugs like mifepristone and misoprostol.

Populace education played a pivotal role in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey being overturned. It also played a huge role in moving people to embrace the sanctity of human life. In this post-Roe environment its important for people to understand we’ve entered the chemical abortion era.

Groomers' Goal
March 13, 2023

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6 (NASB).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Gallup has released an extensive social survey showing the ultimate sexual perversion groomers’ goal. According to the survey, Gen Z adults, those born between 1997 and 2004, have embraced alternative lifestyles more readily than any other demographic — double the rate of Millennials and seven times more than the Baby Boomer generation.

That, is not merely a casual occurrence. It’s the objective. This is the aim of Drag queen story hours and sexualizing children at schools.
