    Enough is enough. From this die forward any conversation with the woke church has to be viewed as an interfaith dialogue. This is not an in house discussion any longer. You have a different law, different gospel, different word and in some cases an overtly different god.

    American Gospel Motion Picture Website ^ | 2019 & 2020 | American Gospel Motion Picture
    American Gospel examines how the prosperity gospel (the Word of Faith movement) has distorted the gospel message, and how this theology is being exported abroad. It also discusses how in our culture it is common for preachers to soften the message of the cross and the attributes of God that are displayed in the person of work of Jesus Christ. American Gospel explores how the paths of post-modernism and progressive Christianity lead to a different gospel, and a god created in our own image.

    It was the kind of calling that Petr Jasek simply could not turn away from.

And then...While preparing to board a flight home from the country’s capital Khartoum, the Christian leader was detained on charges of espionage and purporting to “wage war against the country of Sudan.” He was informed he was facing the death penalty and thrown into a filthy cell.Although it was seemingly designed for just one person,...

  • No, Easter Is Not Derived From an Ancient Pagan Holiday

    04/10/2020 3:01:19 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 135 replies ^ | April 10, 2020 | Ashley Herzog
    Maybe you’ve seen the eyebrow-raising claims on the Internet or elsewhere in the media: rather than celebrating Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and triumph over crucifixion, Easter is really derived from a pagan holiday. Proponents of this theory point to symbols of rebirth and fertility, like eggs and bunnies, that we see at Easter as proof. But the foundation of the claim that Easter is a pagan tradition is the similarity in names: Easter, they say, is the English translation of Eostre, a Germanic goddess of fertility. (Others claim Easter got its name from the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar, or the...

    Author, theologian, and preacher John Piper released a new book on Wednesday called Coronavirus and Christ, which offers biblical answers and hope amid the present COVID-19 pandemic.

    Over the past couple of weeks I’ve heard various friends and colleagues express their suspicions regarding the timing of the Coronavirus pandemic, surfacing as it has in the midst of this election year. Some have suggested that the virus may have been manufactured and deliberately released, whereas others have felt that the whole situation has been hyped and overblown for the purpose of undermining President Trump’s administration. To be sure, sadly but not at all surprisingly, there are surely many people attempting to politicize the pandemic to their own advantage. I’ve had my own cynical suspicions along these lines, especially...

    Hindus linked to ruling BJP rally against planned statue that will rival Rio de Janeiro's Christ The Redeemer for size. Hundreds of hardline Hindus affiliated to India's ruling party have rallied to protest against planned Jesus statue that will rival Rio de Janeiro's Christ The Redeemer for size. The protests in the southern state of Karnataka's Ramanagara district on Monday were led by far-right Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), with its members clutching saffron flags as around 1,000 police stood by. ..."We want to stop [the statue], since it goes against the spirit of communal harmony and encourages religious conversions which...

[from the Greek word "Christos", meaning "anointed". The translation is from the Hebrew word "Mashiach" or "Messiah". Both "Christ" and "Messiah" mean "the Anointed One of God". Oftentimes...

    The president has lit the National Christmas tree on the mall virtually every year since 1923. But what makes this year so special is that the president didn’t shy away from the true meaning of the season. In his remarks, Trump reminded the nation about a piece of the tradition that we often overlook. After President Calvin Coolidge lit the first National Christmas Tree, a cross was displayed in bright lights on the Washington Monument — “a powerful reminder,” the president said, “of the meaning of the season.” Mentioning a cross is bold enough on its own, but the president...

    This song is the personal testimony of Anna the prophetess, the daughter of Penhanuel, of the tribe of Aser, of the people of Israel (Luke 2:36-38)! It is in the time of great Roman oppression and Anna has experienced and observed the despair of her people and the mighty oppressive power of Rome and her armies for many years. Notice in the lyrics of this song that Almighty God; her Lord and Savior; is ALWAYS observing her and taking care of her! She is ALWAYS in His ETERNAL presence and watchful eye. He always is hearing her prayers and sees...

    Posted on November 25, 2019 by Msgr. Charles Pope Why Was Christ Crucified Between Two Thieves? It is good and necessary to ponder more of the Gospel of yesterday’s Solemnity of Christ the King. It remains a profound teaching that Christ was crucified between two thieves. Why?St. Thomas Aquinas proposes three answers to the question. Let’s consider them, with particular emphasis on the third.I. To Identify with Fallen Sinners – St Thomas said, As Christ became accursed of the cross for us, so for our salvation He was crucified as a guilty one among the guilty (Comm. xxxiii in...

    What is the craziest unexplained event you have witnessed? Jennifer Scholl, MSW from The Ohio State University (2018) First, let me say that I am and remain a huge sceptic, even after this happened. I’ve thought of every possible explanation and I still have no idea how this happened. Whether you choose to believe me or not, I have no reason to make this up and like I said, I’m skeptical every time I hear a story like this. But nonetheless, here is the completely unexplainable event I witnessed: In 1999, my mother was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor...
