The D-Word
June 13, 2022

Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scoffers.

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

One word has proven to be debilitating in our society: the D-word.  Discrimination.

What we fail to realize is discrimination is not automatically a dirty concept. We discriminate against thieves and murderers when we send them to prison. We discriminated against sexual predators by keeping them away from children. And yes, we rightly discriminated against men when we keep them out of women’s restrooms.

According to Psalm 1, we have to discriminate against the counsel of the wicked in order to be blessed. Good thing God isn’t debilitated by the D-word.

Leak Investigated?
June 10, 2022

“The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.”  Proverbs 14:15 (ESV).

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

A draft majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito,  in the Dobbs case which indicated 5 of the 9 SCOTUS justices had voted to overturn Roe and Casey was leaked to the media on May 2nd.

By my count, the leak could’ve only come from one the Justices themselves or one of their law clerks. The latter is more likely in my view. But, the investigation into the leak has just gotten to where clerks cell phone records are being collected and they’re having to sign affidavits… now!?!?!!?

Leak investigations in the digital age are not rocket surgery. That is, if you truly want to investigate.

What we're witnessing is a lack of will, not capacity.

Some Homelessness
June 09, 2022

“God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.”  1 John 1:5(b) (NASB).

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

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced her 5-year plan to end homelessness in her city… well, that is transgender homelessness.

I wish I was kidding.

She literally announced a $6.5 million budget proposal to end homelessness within next five years for the transgendered, the gender non-conforming, and LGBTQ+ youth in Frisco.

So what about the homeless San Franciscans who don’t fit any of the aforementioned categories? Any hope for them?

Any recent visitors to San Fransisco will tell you their streets teem with excrement, largely deposited by homeless people. Mayor Breed has shown that excrement also comes from the Mayor’s office.

Ole Jim Eagle
June 08, 2022

“Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own [nature,] for he is a liar and the father of lies.”  John 8:44(b) (NASB).

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

According to the State of Georgia, early voting turnout during its 2022 midterm primary election was 168% than it was in 2018, their last gubernatorial primary, and 212% higher than it was was during the 2020 presidential primary year.

Though corporations tried to beat each other in the woke olympics, Major League Baseball moved it’s all-star game, and Mr. J. Robinette called Georgia’s 2021 election integrity law “Jim Crow 2.0,… Jim Eagle,” Georgians voted in record numbers, including minority voters.

Who’d a thunk it! Voter I.D. law and increased voter participation.

June 07, 2022

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.”  Luke 18:16 (NASB).

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

The Texas Department of Public Safety has confirmed that at least 19 elementary school children and two teachers were murdered by an 18 year old at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX.

The massacre has spurred the typical knee-jerk calls for more gun control legislation.

We never see this type of reaction when other instrumentalities like knives or motor vehicles are used to perpetrate heinous crimes.

The issue isn’t the instrumentality. The real issue is the sin-sick human heart. There’s only one way to address it, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Avoiding the true cause avoids the only cure.

Arizona Department of Miseducation
June 06, 2022

Jesus said “let the children come to me, and do not hinder them.”  Luke 18:16 (NASB).

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

The Arizona Department of Education links to chat rooms in its website for LGBTQ+ minors to discuss sex and gender with adult moderators present without their parents knowing.

The department specifically points minors to two different websites which rely on adult volunteers or staff members to facilitate their chat rooms.

And, they don’t verify the age of those joining the chats beyond asking applicants to self report a birth date.

This is being done with Arizona tax payers dollars by the Arizona Department of Education!

The sexualization of children is happening under the guise of “education.”

June 2022
June 03, 2022

“You will know them by their fruits.”  Matthew 7:16(a) (NASB).

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

The next few weeks of SCOTUS decisions will likely be the defining moment of former President Trump’s legacy in office having filled three vacancies on the nation’s highest court. There are 33 decisions to be announced this June.

They include everything from the likely reversal or Roe, to 2nd Amendment Rights, Religious Liberty, Parental Rights and the extent of the leviathan administrative state’s power.

June 2022 will be the month in which we’ll get the most robust clarity to date as to the nature of the newly constituted Trump Supreme Court, considering the wide array of socially impactful decisions to be announced. You know we’re going to tackle them on “The Hamilton Corner.”

Stay tuned.

Pastoral Worldview
June 02, 2022

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  Romans 12:2(a) (NASB).

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

According to a new nationwide survey conducted by Dr. George Barna, Director of Research at Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center, only slightly over 37% of American Pastors have a Biblical worldview.

The majority, 62%, adhere to a hybrid worldview known as syncretism.

And the numbers are even more startling when you consider surveyed Children’s Pastors and Youth Pastors. It showed only 12% of them have a Biblical worldview.

No wonder our nation is what it’s become.

This evidence demonstrates that America’s greatest need is repentance and that repentance must start in the House of God.

81 Million, Eh?
June 01, 2022

“And I will make boys their princes, and infants shall rule over them.”  Isaiah 3:4 (ESV).

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

According to an audit tool provided by software company SpartkToro, it has found 49.3% of the 22.4 million followers of Mr. Robinette’s official @POTUS Twitter account are fake bot accounts.

The information was unearthed due to Elon Musk’s due diligence query following his bid to buy Twitter.

So, the man who got over 81 million votes in the 2020 presidential election, the most popular presidential candidate in American history, can’t even get 15 million Twitter followers?


Prior to being banned from Twitter, I’m pretty sure former President Trump had over 60 million people following him there. Ain’t that something?!??

Be Transformed
May 31, 2022

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect” Romans 12:2 (ESV).

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

Paul’s epistle to the Romans was written to believers. This verse highlights the fact that it’s possible for Christians to be conformed to the world’s ways.

The word “conformed” there means to be squeezed into the mold of another. Rather than to be squeezed into the world’s mold, the Lord requires us to be transformed by having our minds renewed by God’s Word.

Everything about us must be held up to the light of Scripture. And whenever there’s any discrepancy, we must be transformed.

Doers of the Word
May 30, 2022

But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  James 1:22.

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

This Scripture underscores the harrowing reality that permeates the life of many who profess to be Christians. The blessing of being a Christ follower comes not only from hearing God’s Word, but obeying it.

James continues, “for if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.  For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.  But the one who looks into the perfect law of liberty and perseveres, being not a hearer who forgets, but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing."

Payday Loan Sharks
May 27, 2022

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.

May 26, 2022

“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
May 25, 2022

David, the son of Jesse, 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.

The Source of America's Greatness
May 20, 2022

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
May 19, 2022

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?

Inexhaustible Grace
May 18, 2022

“I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because He judged me faithful, appointing me to His service.”  1 Timothy 1:12 (ESV).

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

In Paul’s first letter to Timothy, he expressed his awe, wonder and amazement at the inexhaustible grace and mercy of God in that He saw fit not only to regenerate Paul, but to also find him worthy for appointment to Gospel ministry.

Paul knows his history as a blasphemer and a terrorist who sought to destroy The Way of Christ following.

He stands as a witness to the fact, that no one—and I mean no one— is beyond the grace of God.

Keep praying for your unsaved loved ones!

It's Them
May 17, 2022

“And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.”  Mark 5:15 (ESV).

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

Mark described the Gadarean demoniac, who said “My name is Legion, for we are many” as living among the tombs, breaking free from shackles and chains, howling in the night and cutting himself with stones.

But Jesus cast the demons out of him. And when the townspeople saw him with Jesus, free, clothed in his right mind… that is when they were afraid.

If you’ve recently been freed by Jesus don’t be surprised if it makes your old friends uncomfortable. It’s not you. It’s them.

Inventors of Evil
May 16, 2022

“Slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil.”  Romans 1:30(a) (NASB).

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

As the possible end of Roe draws nigh, several states are doing their level-best to enshrine themselves as the most faithful adherents to the murderous abortion death cult.

Senate Bill 669 in Maryland, also known as the Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act, could allow babies to be murdered 28 days after birth should the bill pass.

California Assembly Bill 2223 could also legalize infanticide for weeks, months, or even years after a child is born should it pass.

These pieces of legislation reveal the utter barbarity that consumes the hearts of some in our nation. This is evil.

Freedom Feeds Prosperity
May 13, 2022

“It gives understanding to the simple.”  Psalm 119:130(a) (NASB).

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

Who knew so many “Americans” feared free speech. With Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, many revealed their penchant for the totalitarian censorship of ideas and opinions they don’t agree with.

What they clearly don’t realize is by embracing censorship they would move our nation as a whole into a far weaker position.

A robust marketplace of ideas strengthens our national body politic and creates the most production and most innovation for maximum societal flourishing.

There’s a reason why the light bulb, the automobile, Silicon Valley and much more were all created in America and not Russia or China.

Freedom feeds prosperity.
