  • Trump Didn’t Know the Camera Was On… (VIDEO)

    Conservative Republican Donald Trump is leading in all the polls by historic margins. Trump, who is a Presbyterian, recently held a meeting with 40 religious leaders at his Trump Towers office. Christian Pastor David Jeremiah along with television evangelist Jan Crouch, Pastor Darrell Scott, and Jews for Jesus Rabbi Kirt Schneider. While candidates have been open about sharing their faith in recent decades, true Christians act as Christians at all times… even when no one is watching. The two and a half hour meeting about faith was constructive, and all reports are that Trump asked the Lord for wisdom and...
  • Actor James Woods: 'Hate Crime Massacre of Christians Finally Silences Obama'

    26 year-old gunman Chris Harper Mercer opened fire on the campus on Thursday, killing nine people and wounding seven. Mercer reportedly singled out Christians for death by asking the religion of potential victims before firing on them. Mercer was then shot and killed by law enforcement. In a series of tweets on October 2, Woods argued that because the victims were Christian, both resident Obama and the media would lose interest in the story. "NY Times writes a front page story about a hate massacre targeting Christians without using the word 'Christians,'" Woods tweeted, linking to story in the New...

    Rapture Ready ^ | 2 Oct 15 | Don McGee
    A lot of anxiety has been stirred up recently over the teaching that the Church will go through some, if not all of the time known as the Great Tribulation. Jesus referred to this special time in Matthew 24:21, and it has been the springboard for books and movies that portray some very terrifying things to come. Some Christians, thinking that the Church will go through it, are worried and are doing their best to make plans to survive the seven years.They are stockpiling food, water, precious metals, guns and ammunition, etc., in the hope of making it alive until...

    You need to know three things about the Oregon killings, the latest senseless act of hate directed at Christians in America. The father of shooting victim Anastasia Boylan, who was shot in the back and survived, said this after talking to his daughter before her surgery about Christopher Harper Mercer’s killing spree at a Rosewood, Oregon community college. I don’t know how much time elapsed before he was able to stand there and start asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he asked them. And if you’re a Christian stand up, and he said ‘Good....

    The gunman who opened fire at an Oregon community college was forcing people to stand up and state their religion before he began blasting away at them, survivors said Thursday. A woman who claimed to have a grandmother inside the Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall, where the massacre unfolded, described the scene in a tweet. “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my...

    You want to know one reason why so many Christian marriages end up in divorce? Ronald Reagan once quipped that the trouble with his political opponents, “is not that they are ignorant. It’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” Well, I’ve had a bee in my bonnet for years over something that far too many of my fellow Christians believe in that just isn’t so. I speak, gentle listener, of the whole “soul mate” nonsense, especially when it comes to finding a husband or wife. Let me be perfectly clear: No matter how many ads for Christian...

Franklin Graham, the influential son of beloved evangelist Billy Graham, tells Newsmax TV the pounding Russian air force strikes in Syria may end up saving countless numbers of persecuted Christians. "What Russia is doing may save the lives of Christians in the Middle East," Graham, president and CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said Wednesday to J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan on "Newsmax Prime."

    If you have ever debated with hard-line Church of Christ members you are probably aware that many of them will resort to using some very fallacious tactics in defending their truth claims. One ex-Church of Christ writer from the site correctly claims… The Church of Christ denomination uses four main tactics in debating their pet doctrines. These tactics are generally used by all cultic groups. They are: 1. Change the subject 2. Take scripture out of context 3. Straw man arguments 4. Ad hominem attacks (attacking you instead of the issue) The way to counter these tactics is very...

    WND ^ | September 25, 2015 | Unattributed
    Experts say morality's continued 'evolution' has no limits Traditional morality regarding sex isn’t just collapsing, it’s being inverted. Homosexuals, whose behavior once was illegal and reviled, are heroes. Pedophiles, considered among the lowest of the low for millennia, are being characterized as victims. And if you think there’s something wrong about all of this, you might have a mental disorder. It’s a perspective that Paul Kengor, a university professor, historian and author of “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage,” argues is being pursued aggressively by Democrats. “Once upon a time, you would have...

    Pope Francis warns marriage has been stretched and distorted in the United States, to the point where it is no longer even similar to the Christian sacrament of matrimony. The pontiff noted the “unprecedented changes” taking place in contemporary society, “with their social, cultural – and sadly now juridical – effects on family bonds,” referring to the Supreme Course decision in June to legalize same-sex marriage for the entire nation in Obergefell v. Hodges.

    The 14th-century Christian town of Maaloula is rising again from the ruins and rubble of eight months of occupation by insurgents determined to obliterate churches, convents and Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus and his disciples. The streets of the newer quarters and narrow alleyways of the old city are clear of debris and charred wooden beams from collapsed buildings. Street lights glow orange on lamp posts although the electricity supply is fitful and uncertain. “Just like Damascus,” says municipal councillor Joseph Saadeh. I last visited Maaloula on April 15th, 2014, with a handful of other journalists taken by Syrian...

But after the Packers beat the Seahawks 27-17 in Green Bay Sunday night, Rodgers made a comment that appeared to show some of the history with the Seahawks was on his mind.

Not only has the video been making the rounds, but the hashtag #IAmAChristianBut is ubiquitous on social media right now. After you watch the video, it’s obvious that this is a propaganda piece for a version of Christianity that is Christian in name only–a progressivist vision of the faith that has more to do with maintaining street-cred with Christianity’s cultured despisers than with the faith once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3).

Christian villages have been a part of the Middle East since the birth of Christ.

    For Western countries now facing the onslaught of refugees from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and other unstable regions of the world, a simple test should be given to determine who is allowed in and who is not. Call it the Koran test. It is a simple entrance exam that would be scored as either Pass or Fail, and it is inspired by a recent incident at a migrant shelter in Suhl, Germany. In that incident, one of the migrants tore up a Koran and threw the pages into a toilet. When this was discovered, all hell broke loose. A...

And as usual, he was making the case that Christian churches should align with him on his refugee campaign to bring thousands of middle eastern refugees (he says Christians only, although he openly says he'd like to bring in muslims if he could only tell the good ones from the bad ones). And in the course of his speech he expressed frustration with...

    Washington (CNN)—A new CNN/ORC poll finds that although misperceptions about Barack Obama's religious beliefs and background persist, they are not as widespread as some recent polling has suggested. Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian. Overall, when asked "where was Obama born, as far as you know?" 80% of adults say they believe Obama was born in the United States, while 20% said that he was born outside the country. And just 9% of those who think he was born elsewhere believe there is solid evidence of that; the other 11% say it is just their suspicion.Misperceptions about...

Then leftists say those who disobey their lawless laws are not behaving like Christians and good Americans. Many on our side fall for it. The SCOTUS' ruling on Obamacare and homosexual marriage means the Constitution will now say whatever leftists want it to say. Folks, do you realize that based on this new precedent, the left can make anything they want a law? Incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and so on?

    A federal judge has ordered Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and her deputies to appear in his courtroom Thursday and explain why Davis should not be held in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses. Shortly after opening her doors Tuesday, Davis told two same-sex couples who asked for marriage licenses that she would not issue them, despite a federal court injunction ordering her to do so. In a brief but tense encounter between Davis and a couple dozen marriage-equality demonstrators who crowded into her office, the clerk repeatedly refused to comply with the court order.

    Muslims kidnapped a Christian pastor, demanding a $120,000 ransom that if wasn’t paid, they would kill the pastor. The family somehow raised the money and paid the Muslims, who kept the money and killed the pastor amyway and sent his body back, cut up into pieces. That’s according to The Christian Post that is reporting on what has become a new currency in the Middle East: Christians who are being kidnapped at a dizzying pace by Obama’s Religion of Peace. The Post reported on another kidnapping case wherein Catholic Priest Father Douglas Bazi was kidnapped by Muslims who actually returned...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — At least six Christians were attacked with a cleansing agent on Wednesday while preaching the gospel and standing for life outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in Portland, Oregon, but the man who committed with the act was not arrested and was let go without charges. The pro-life outreach was part of the Biblical Church Evangelism Conference hosted by Beaverton Grace Bible Church and organized by its pastor, Chuck O’Neal. As over 20 Christians stood on the public sidewalk to proclaim the word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ through preaching and the holding of...

    A state appeals court in Colorado ruled Thursday that a baker could not cite religious beliefs in refusing to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples. The decision is the latest in a series of similar rulings across the country that have been cheered by civil rights groups but attacked by conservative Christians as assaults on religious liberty. Whether photographers, florists, bakers and other vendors who are Christians should have a right to refuse services for same-sex marriages has emerged as a major cultural and legal battle, one that has intensified since the Supreme Court decision in June establishing same-sex marriage...

    Yesterday, a news story broke where an undercover video was shown allegedly capturing a Planned Parenthood worker brokering a deal to sell the body parts of their aborted fetuses. The woman on the video goes into graphic detail about how the tiny organs are harvested while she casually sips her wine and eats her salad. The viral video has propelled outrage all over the internet and launched hashtags such as #PPSellsBodyParts. This story has put the abortion debate back into the national spotlight. As a Christian (and a pastor), I’ve never seen abortion as a “political” issue, but rather as...

    Even as Megyn Kelly wrestles with Donald Trump about his supposed “war on women,” Canadian Jewish businessman Steve Maman is helping save lives in the real war on women being waged in the Middle East by ISIS. Taking a personal example from Oskar Schindler, who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust, Maman told the Catholic publication The Tablet that he has overseen the rescue of more than 120 Christian and Yazidi girls kidnapped by ISIS in northern Iraq. Maman, 42, an entrepreneur, founded the Liberation of Christian and Yazidi Children of Iraq (CYCI) after the jihadists overran the cities...

    Ms. Dehabey, resettlement coordinator for US Together in Toledo, is also the primary facilitator for their adjustment to the area. The organization has been quietly and steadily resettling refugees in the Toledo area for a little more than a year, the only agency in the Toledo area doing so. The refugee community is a small but growing regional population, Ms. Dehabey said. She has placed 11 families in the Toledo area, including two before US Together opened its Toledo office in May, 2014. ... Ms. Dehabey opens an average of one case a month, she said, though arrivals can be...

    Feminists have a lot to complain about. They post sexy pictures online to protest Silicon Valley "discrimination" against women, they think office temperatures are biased against women, they hold parades to demand the right to be called "sluts," they demand written consent for sex, they complain that women can't negotiate salaries, that movies feature too few 50-year-old women, and so on. These seem like really big issues, perhaps, until you see what is happening in the Middle East. ISIS fanatics have executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with its fighters, a Kurdish official has said. They were put...

    Christians With Their Heads In The Sand Friday, July 31, 2015 I recall how history tells us of the German people living next to the gas chambers, ignoring the smell and horror of over six million Jews being slaughtered, and then acting as though they didn't know it had happened. I can also recall that Eisenhower was so disgusted with these callused and unconcerned people that he made them face their denial by marching them all past the dead and decaying piles of corpses of the slaughtered Jews within these electrified wire compounds. Get where I am going with this?...

Arab eyewitnesses claim that the man waved the flag near the Dome of the Rock before a mob descended on him. During the beating, he was hit on the head with a rock. …

    The shadowy shyster Obama January 20, 2009, was the date; the infamous date when the destroyer of the country called the United States of America began his crusade to kill off as many citizens as possible, and as many symbols and patriotic sayings as he possibly could annihilate. If some took actual lives with his deadly thrusts, the happier he was and the more he enjoyed being the “Messiah” of doom. O1/20/09 was also the date when nearly half of the country abandoned their citizenship and bowed down to this fakir who could not even produce a legitimate birth certificate....
