    Coach is Right ^ | June 27, 2015 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    The American public is told to ignore the “soldiers” of the Muslim group ISIS. We are not permitted to refer to them as terrorists even though they commit countless, unspeakable acts against Christian and Yazidi women in captured areas of Iraq. These sub humans claim to stay true to the literal interpretation of Islam and are unmoved by public opinion. The practice of giving away women captured in war and using them as sex slaves or prizes is called “sibya” and is endorsed by Mosques. The girls are awarded as prizes in a Koran Trivia contest in honor of the...

    The state of Israel is blocking the release of details on the recent arson attack against a historical Catholic church by the Sea of Galilee, namely the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Tabgha. It resides at the site where Christ miraculously multiplied loaves and fish to feed 5,000 people.Aside from being damaged by the fire, the church was also vandalized with Hebrew graffiti messages such as "Death to non-Jews" and "False idols will be eliminated." The incident marked the second time since last year the building has been attacked.Sixteen Jewish seminary students were arrested,...

    The greatest force now unfolding on planet Earth – driving all the events of history – is the Church abandoning Christ. With a few important exceptions, the Christian Church has stopped being Christian. The Ex-Church doesn’t really believe in an actual God at all anymore. In modern America, the majority of Christians now reject the actual gospel of Jesus Christ. Sin doesn’t matter anymore. You don’t need to repent these days. Just like the joke about how to get rich in your sleep without even trying, now we can be forgiven without ever feeling regret, without changing our behavior, and...

    A local politician in Spain faced a major backlash after asking for religious symbols to be removed from his swearing in ceremony. A new leftist councillor of a small town south of Madrid faced boos as he officially took office, after requesting that a bible and crucifix be removed from the podium at which he was about to make a speech. Alberto López, of the United Left party, asked that religious symbols be removed from his official inauguration ceremony in the town of Argés, near Toledo, which provoked loud booing and shouting from the assembled audience.

She is apparently upset that the Black community, which is being targeted for abortion by racist eugenics groups...

Gary Glenn, a state representative and head of the American Family Association of Michigan, says the law protects faith-based adoption agencies so they can continue to provide adoption referral services to the state and to local governments without violating their religious convictions.

    Can someone be pro-choice and still consider themselves Christian? What does the Bible say in regard to being pro-life? The Author of Life When Peter and John were witnessing to the Jews in what is called Solomon’s portico, Peter said “But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses” (Acts 3:14-15). Here Peter was saying that they chose a murderer over the “Author of life” and that of course was Jesus. The crowd...

    One of the pillars of the Evangelical marriage to the Republican Party is the Pro-Life movement. By far, this movement is one of the most passionate and mobilized groups in America. But I wonder have they ever taken a moment to ask themselves the question of why, according to the Guttmacher Institute, 65 percent of all abortions are performed on Christian patients (37 percent Protestant and 28 percent Catholic). Sometimes I wonder if they even know this statistic. And if they do, how do they look at themselves in the mirror at night after they have gone to college campuses...

Dozens of families gathered alongside government officials and religious dignitaries in the main square, which was adorned with government flags and a giant portrait of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Located north of Damascus, Maalula is one of the world's oldest Christian settlements, and its inhabitants still speak Aramaic, a language spoken by Jews in Israel at the time Jesus was said to have...

Local New Mexico-based pro-life advocate Tara Shaver tells LifeNews she was contacted by the pro-life community in Lubbock, Texas this past weekend about the woman and her husband and their plans to have an abortions.

    We’ve been hearing about the issue of sibling abuse lately because of the Duggar situation. How should Christians handle issues of abuse? First and foremost, it’s important for parents to not ignore the suspected abuse. Sometimes the thought is almost too much to comprehend, so it’s easier to just assume the best and hope it’s not happening—and that’s a big mistake. The best thing parents can do is address the situation head-on. I would encourage parents to speak to a qualified child psychologist in their area. Then I always recommend that when it doubt, always contact law enforcement. This is...

    In Korea, the only "god" he knew was the country's leader, Kim Il-Sung, and any perceived blasphemy against him could land a person in a prison camp. So when Joseph Kim finally crossed the Tumen river into China, he did what he was told—follow the cross—even though he didn't know what a cross or a Christian was. Kim tells his story in a new book, Under the Same Sky: From Starvation in North Korea to Salvation in America (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), and at a time when North Korea occasionally surfaces in the headlines for its continuing beligerence towards the...

But I'm a Christian and I've prayed about it and I know God will forgive. His grace is greater than all my sin.” What's wrong with this picture? (Other than the fact that a baby is about to be deliberately put to death.) Most Christians instinctively sense something's desperately out of whack here. But what? Sadly, few seem able to put their finger on it. Sadder still is that after they sift through their...

    A documentary film series produced in 2013, but one I have only recently viewed, maintains that the modern church’s stand in accepting birth control is contrary to centuries of early church teaching. Birth Control The Movie was directed by Kevin Peeples based on his own personal journey to answer the question: As a Christian, is birth control up to us? Little did he realize that his journey coincided with producers Scott Matthew Dix and Nathan Nicholson. The series consists of two DVD’s: BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?, which looks into why there is no fundamental difference between the...

    A new document attests to the genocide that is being ignored by the world. Every year, more than 100,000 Christians are murdered just because of their faith.

A genocide of Christians is under way. In many Middle Eastern cities, from Aleppo to Mosul, the Islamists have dealt with each and every Christian by displacing, killing or forcibly converting them, and just like the Nazis painted the Star...

Christians are understandably upset when art exhibits feature crucifixes immersed in urine or portraits of Mary covered with dung.It doesn’t require a Ph.D. to figure out why the secular word condemns insults to Muslims but countenances insults to Christians. It’s because the latter won’t come after you with machetes and assault rifles. If Islam were truly...

And on top of that, after being fined $135,000, GoFundMe.com pulled a fundraising effort for the couple because of...tolerance or something. Todd Starnes reports:The owners of an Oregon bakery learned Friday that there is a severe price to pay for following their Christian faith. A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recommended a lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them...

    ~snip~ "What I call the Benedict Option is this: a limited, strategic withdrawal of Christians from the mainstream of American popular culture, for the sake of shoring up our understanding of what the church is, and what we must do to be the church. We must do this because the strongly anti-Christian nature of contemporary popular culture occludes the meaning of the Gospel, and hides from us the kinds of habits and practices we need to engage in to be truly faithful to what we have been given."

    An Oregon administrative law judge recommended today that the bakers who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding should be fined $135,000. “[T]he forum concludes that $75,000 and $60,000, are appropriate awards to compensate [the same-sex couple] for the emotional suffering they experienced,” wrote Alan McCullough, administrative law judge for Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries in his proposed order. Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa located in Gresham, Ore., say the fine is enough to potentially bankrupt their family of seven. The dispute began in January 2013, when Aaron denied Rachel Cryer a...

    By now you’ve probably seen the video. Simple text overlaid on sweeping and beautiful natural vistas set to a serene — but determined — instrumental soundtrack. Subtle stylistic choices: the use of lens flare, vintage film effects, and mirroring; the use of just enough motion graphics to make a point without being distracting. Beneath it all, a translation in Arabic script for the intended audience. Together, it forms the most potent and moving message I’ve seen addressing the rise of the Islamic state. It cuts through the noise, and offers the reality of God’s love and the opportunity for salvation to men...

    Former Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann stated that President Barack Obama’s handling of the Iranian nuclear deal is a symbol of the coming of the end of times and the “imminent” return of Jesus Christ, during a recent radio interview. Bachmann explained that if Obama and the United States turn their back on Israel, this would bring severe “curses” upon the United States, similar to those seen in the end of days. But, Bachmann is not afraid of the end of days, rather she says that “these are the most exciting days in history” because nothing is more important than the...
