    This on Facebook gives DT’s opening shot to a most exceptional speech from any world leader as he points heaven-ward saying, “But you know something else? We still need help from the Boss! We need help from the Boss – that’s what I think – we need help….They’ll criticise me for saying it: ‘How dare he say that!’ Nah, I’ll say it…I’ll say it! Someone said to me the other day ‘You’re the most famous person in the world by far’. I said ‘No I’m not, no I’m not!’ and they said, ‘Who’s more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ!’ (…applause…)...

    In just two weeks Americans will go to the polls. For whom should Christians vote? This election is vitally important to you and future generations. There is a side that is openly supportive to Christians and the church. However, there is also a strong political movement that blatantly hates God and Christians. They ridicule Christians as racist, backward unscientific, judgmental and unsophisticated. They tell us that we need to change and update our doctrine to conform to their views about homosexuality, Islam, abortion and tax-payer funding for contraception. They approve of abortion even till after birth. They desire to use...
  • Christians in Indonesia Seek Assurance of Their Constitutional Rights

    10/19/2020 1:33:57 AM PDT · by xomething · 2 replies ^ | 10/17/2020 | ICC’s Indonesia Correspondent
    (International Christian Concern) – Persecution of Christians in Indonesia continues to occur, despite the statutory system in this country that clearly provides protection for the freedom of every citizen to embrace and worship according to their respective religions. In practice, it is another story. With the emergence of radical Islamic groups and their bold and open persecution of Christians in Indonesia, the Indonesian government itself does not seem to have the courage to take firm action against the brutality of these radicals. The government allegedly allowed these incidents to happen. In fact, in some cases, the government was involved with...
  • So-called 'Virginia Values Act' undermines religious freedom; Requires Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.

    On July 1, the state of Virginia enacted the “Virginia Values Act,” which bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. A companion law requires employers to include coverage for sex reassignment and “gender affirming” surgeries in their health plans. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, who has filed a pre-enforcement challenge, the Virginia Values Act requires “churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.”Though the Act provides an exemption for religious schools “owned, supported, controlled, or managed” by denominations or churches, that...
  • Never-Before-Published Letter Reveals Concentration Camp Churches — Nazis ‘Received God’ After Atrocities

    In a never-before-published letter to his family, American soldier Leon Morin reveals something that has been hidden in a dark corner of history: the Nazis, who committed the most gruesome atrocities against 6 million Jewish people, would simultaneously “receive God” on Sundays in beautiful churches built in the concentration camp Dachau. On July 9, 1945, about six weeks after the U.S. liberation of Dachau, Leon Morin penned a 10-page letter to his family describing his observations of the “worst” concentration camp, Dachau. “… [I]t will take 12 pages like this one to just give an idea about the best organized...
  • A Costly Decision: Christian Animator's Business 'Destroyed' for Declining to Draw Trans Flag

    A hate campaign has destroyed yet another business. But this time, it's a Regent University student's successful animation work that had paid for her education. Ever since she's been able to hold a crayon, art has been Emily Arunt's passion. "At age 11, I saw people drawing online and animating online," she said. "I was just instantly [drawn] – I want to do that too." That was 11 years ago. Since then, Arant has made a name for herself as Lupis Vulpes, a top animator known for her eye-popping animal characters and more than 200,000 YouTube subscribers. Her business proved...

    (CN) — In an effort to pull Christian voters away from President Trump, Joe Biden launched a new ad campaign Thursday tailored around the former vice president’s Catholic faith and values. “In a stark contrast to Donald Trump, who tear gassed protesters to pose for a photo op with a Bible in front of a church, the ads depict how Biden’s faith is deeply connected to his life story and commitment to public service and illustrates why Biden is the clear moral choice in this election,” the Biden team said of the rollout, making reference to the president’s controversial June...

    The public response to President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis went a step beyond the malicious Friday morning, as strange accounts flooded the social media announcement with Satanic imagery and apparent curses. Trump had taken to Twitter on Thursday evening to directly inform the nation that he and first lady Melania Trump had both contracted the coronavirus and would be quarantining at the White House, effective immediately. “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” Trump wrote. It was only a few short minutes before the post was inevitably met by fringe left-wing aliases and public opponents of the president...

    Communist authorities in southwestern China’s Yunnan province sent a notice to a village warning that any resident who converts to Christianity will face financial penalties or even the confiscation of their land. The notice sent to Huang Fei village in that province’s Yingjiang County, which is close to the China-Myanmar border, states that the residents of the Dai ethnic group are Buddhist and Christianity is an “evil cult,” according to the U.K.-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide, which says that converts in several other villages might've received similar threats either by notice or in-person. It adds that “believing in Jesus Christ and...
  • Virginia Forces Christian Ministries to Adopt 'Government Ideology' or Pay $100K; Christian schools, and ministries forced to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity

    Three Christian schools and a Christian network of pregnancy centers are suing Attorney General Mark Herring (D-Va.) in order to prevent Virginia from implementing two pro-LGBT laws that force “people of faith to adopt a particular government ideology under threat of punishment.” The two laws purport to prevent “discrimination” against LGBT people but, in reality, they force Christian ministries to choose between violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or paying hefty fines, as much as $100,000 per offense. The so-called Virginia Values Act (S.B. 868), which Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) signed on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter Sunday) in...
  • Christians Need Not Apply?

    Should being an active Christian bar you from public service? Yes, say many pundits today. It would seem that the left wants to impose a religious test to bar anyone who truly believes in Jesus from serving in government. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg left a vacancy on the Supreme Court. In the days following her death, all of the candidates on President Trump’s shortlist to replace her were dedicated Christians, and the left once again bared their anti-Christian bigotry. The Constitution says there can be no religious test applied to those seeking office at the federal level...

    An atheist group has filed a brief in support of a lawsuit against a Georgia college that punished a Christian student for preaching outside of a limited free speech zone on campus. The American Humanist Association filed an amicus brief on Tuesday in the case of Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, which will be argued before the United States Supreme Court. The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm, filed suit against George Gwinnett College for its treatment of Christian student Chike Uzuegbunam. Although the school has changed their policy on free speech and expression since stopping Uzuegbunam from preaching, they have...

    Wheaton theology professor Jennifer Powell McNutt, in her article An Unsung Inspiration for the Protestant Reformation: the Ethiopian Church, recounts how the Reformation–far from being an exercise in individualism–saw itself in the context of the historical church and global Christianity.  The Reformers looked to the Orthodox churches of the East and of Africa as providing a precedent for many of their reforms. When Rome insisted that there can be no church without a Pope, the Reformers pointed to the Orthodox churches, which have no Pope and whose practices pre-date those of Medieval Catholicism.  Those churches do not emphasize Purgatory and do not...

    Source: Townhall Media/Leah BarkoukisDid you hear about the large Christian gatherings in Washington, DC this weekend? Did you see the news reports about the mayhem? The looting? The vandalism? The calls to “Burn it down!”? Did you hear the speakers calling for acts of violence and destruction? Oh, you didn’t? That’s because tens of thousands of Christians did gather in DC this weekend, but they came to pray for the nation and repent for their sins. The two main events were The Return, which began Friday night and ended Saturday night, and Franklin Graham’s prayer march, which was held from...
  • A Handmaid’s Tale is The Protocols of the Elders of Zion for Christians

    A Handmaid’s Tale is becoming, for American Christians, what the Protocols of the Elders of Zion has been for Jews. Margaret Atwood’s dystopian 1985 novel tells stories of women living in a hellish American theocracy. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion claimed to be the minutes of a secret Jewish conspiracy meeting, held late in the 1800s. Protocols was written as slanderous propaganda, intended to justify hatred. Whatever Atwood intended, that’s become the role A Handmaid’s Tale increasingly plays here — especially now that it’s a hit Netflix show.

    You can get lost in the Auschwitz Memorial Twitter feed. When I visited that infamous German WWII concentration camp during the summer before our last presidential election, I had the overwhelming feeling that we were forgetting its terrible example -- that we could fall into such evil again. With the recent violence in the streets, in homes, on television and even in human hearts, that's become a familiar feeling. The power of the Auschwitz Memorial's social media presence is in the names and faces. At least 6 million people died in the Holocaust. They were men, women and children. They...

    As I studied the Bible, I found another truth, too. There’s opposition to the reign of King Jesus, a false kingdom controlled by the evil one. Paul put it this way: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12). It couldn’t have been plainer. The evil one had his own political system, his own false kingdom, and it stood in opposition to the rule and reign of King Jesus. Those powers influenced...

    A California church is making headlines after nearly 1,000 people showed up to be baptized on Saturday at Corona Del Mar State Beach in Newport Beach, California. Gina Gleason, church director at Calvary Chapel Church in Chino Hills, told CBN News that the event, which was a record showing of baptisms for the church, was absolutely "remarkable." "California may be experiencing a spiritual revival," Gleason said. "It's remarkable and a significant number." Normally, the church — which is led by Pastor Jack Hibbs — sees 300 people show up for baptisms, but Saturday was unique in that nearly 1,000 people...

    White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow opened up about his battle with alcohol and drug addiction during an event hosted by First Lady Melania Trump on Thursday. Kudlow, 73, said it would have been “unthinkable” for him to occupy his current position 25 years ago, when he left his job as a Bear Stearns financial analyst and entered a 12-step program to deal with his dependence on booze and cocaine. “I was a hopeless abuser of alcohol and drugs. I had tried several times unsuccessfully to get sober,” Kudlow said. “Like a lot of my peers and friends, I went...
