  • On Holy Thursday, the New York Times Blames Christianity For Fake News

    The Resurgent ^ | 04/14/2017 | Erick Erickson
    It was only fitting that the liberal editorialists at the New York Times saw fit on Holy Thursday to blame Christianity for the rise of fake news. In a column by Molly Worthen titled “The Evangelical Roots of Our Post-Truth Society”, Worthen relies on former Christian turned Episcopalian Rachel Held Evans to attack Bible believing Christians. "Conservative evangelicals are not the only ones who think that an authority trusted by the other side is probably lying. But they believe that their own authority — the inerrant Bible — is both supernatural and scientifically sound, and this conviction gives that natural...

    god-original-land-grant-of-israel-to-abraham by Geoffrey Grider August 17, 2016 The tiny, little fraction of Israel proper that the Jews have at the current moment pales in comparison with how much God says they really have. “For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” Genesis 13:15 (KJV) In our day, much is made of the current conflict between Israel and the mythical Palestinians and the seemingly endless battle over who is entitled to how much of the land. People talk about the ownership of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the...

    A reader writes up a very informative summary of Gary North's detailed account of how the Presbyterian Church was successfully converged over a period of 60 years. Given how reliably organizations get captured by the left, there's an amazing lack of curiosity about how it happens. I recently read Gary North's 1996 book Crossed Fingers: How Liberals Captured the Presbyterian Church, a rare case study of liberal takeover. North provides a detailed - at 1100 pages too detailed - case study of how the left took over the northern Presbyterian church between 1875 and 1936. This books echoes many of...

He picks up a cross from a heap of rubble and wipes away ashes with his priest's robes. He recognizes the cross immediately; he used it at confirmation ceremonies of so many boys and girls here at St. George Church. He no longer knows where some of them are. Or,...

    As we approach Easter, a number of people -- Christian Ministers and priests included -- have encouraged me to share the backstory of how the content for The Forty Days – A Vision of Christ’s Lost Weeks, came to me. They have done so understanding the risk of doubt, ridicule, or worse I might face in the telling of the story.They believe that in a nation and world spiraling deeper into chaos, uncertainty, and tragedy, and as more and more people turn their back on their faith, that a story such as this might speak to them on a deeper level....

    Ronald Reagan's major achievement in his long war against the Soviet Union: presenting communism as a joke -- exposing the lies of the Soviet regime, exposing the misery under which its people were living, and explaining why Western values were preferable to Communist ones. This is exactly what the West, Hirsi Ali explains, should be doing with radical Islam. Western civilization is a humanist vision in which Christianity integrated Jewish wisdom, Greek philosophy and Roman law, thereby giving Western culture its distinctive character: freedom of speech and of the press, equal justice under law, the primacy of the individual, separation...

    The latest figures are “the tip of the iceberg” according to Christian advocacy charity Open Doors. Some 743 Christians and 10 Yazidis were the victims of religious motivated attacks between February and September 2016, with some of victims aged five to 12 years old. Migrant centres in Germany must do more to protect Christians from the attacks with are said to “occur frequently and nationwide” at the hands of some Muslims in the camps. According to the report, 91 per cent of Christians and Yazidis surveyed accused Muslim migrants of carrying out the violent attacks, with 28 per cent accusing...

    In this episode, my guest John Beechy and I will continue with our discussion on "The Things that Matter Most" by addressing truth and its transformative power as it is associated with Jesus Christ who claimed to be "the way, the truth, and the life." We will also shed some light on how organized religions have deviated from this concept, distinguish relative truth from absolute truth, and explore how science has reacted to, and/or compliments biblical truth. There are many thought provoking points to consider, and we want you to join us for this episode of "Making Sense with Rob...

    My fellow Americans: From the early days of the colonies, prayer in school was practiced and revered as an important tradition. Indeed, for nearly 200 years of our nation's history, it was considered a natural expression of our religious freedom. But in 1962 the Supreme Court handed down a controversial decision prohibiting prayer in public schools. Sometimes I can't help but feel the first amendment is being turned on its head. Because ask yourselves: Can it really be true that the first amendment can permit Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen to march on public property, advocate the extermination of people...

    And this is a freedom that entertainers have that, unfortunately, our politicians have to tip-toe around. You’re not going to catch me cheering on Bill Maher, as a general rule. The man is no friend to Christians, having made our beliefs a target of scorn and ridicule for years. That being said, he’s not exclusive with his disdain for religion, and he has not held his tongue in the usual, liberal way, as far as protecting Islam from criticism. Again, he’s no champion for Christ, but in a recent episode of “Real Time,” Maher came out hard against apologists for...

    Peek behind the curtain of some "progressive" or "hip" evangelical churches, past the savvy technology and secular music, and you will find more than just a contemporary worship service. You'll find faith leaders encouraging young evangelicals to trade in their Christian convictions for a gospel filled with compromise. They're slowly attempting to give evangelicalism an "update"—and the change is not for the good. It's painful for me to admit, but we can no longer rest carefree in our evangelical identity—because it is changing. No doubt you have seen the headlines declaring that evangelicalism is doomed because evangelical kids are leaving...

    The Master is at work. I cannot possibly understand all the moves, but when I step back and just look, the struggle of good against evil becomes like looking at a white circle on a black background. This struggle manifests itself in things like Islamic terrorists against Jews and Christians and leftist idealogues against Democracy. I include leftist idealogy with Islamic terrorism because they are allies, and to me, equally vile. The events of our time, while confusing, signal the return of the Master, and the final Earth battle between good and evil. Jesus hasn't given up on mankind. Pray.

    Throughout the duration of his two-term presidency, Barack Obama waged a full-blown war on Christianity, all while appeasing Muslims and pandering to terrorists, but not Donald Trump. President Trump was recently interviewed by David Brody.“Let me switch gears. You know, it wouldn’t be an interview between us if I didn’t ask a ‘God question,’ if you will,” said Brody. “How has that spiritual journey been for you? Especially being here and knowing the gravity of the office. Do you feel the need to pray more? Where are you on that?” As Mr. Conservative notes, Obama would have tried to dodge...
  • [Christian nation?] Christianity is in the Constitution

    apologeticspress.org ^ | by Dave Miller, Ph.D.
    Those who insist that America was not intended to be a “Christian nation” point to the obvious absence of specific directives regarding Christianity in the federal Constitution. The popular propaganda since the 1960s has been that “the irreligious Framers did not want the nation to retain any attachment to the Christian religion.” Such an assertion is a monstrous perversion of historical fact. The truth of the matter is that they were fearful of the potential interference by the federal government in its ability to place restrictions on the free exercise of the Christian religion. Consequently, they desired that the specifics...

    Session #1 of "The Silencing of God" seminar introduces the sinister attempt to expunge manifestations of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life--in direct and stark contradiction to the original intentions of the Founders and Framers. The United States of America is undergoing swift transition as the forces of “political correctness” wage a vociferous culture war. Activist judges, secularist educators, morally bankrupt entertainers, and liberal politicians have teamed up to sell a sanitized version of America’s past. Their objective? To expunge every manifestation of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life. What has been the result of their...

They never existed, but it has become trendy for some people to emulate the imagined practices of Satanists. And now students at Clemson University have announced plans (via a poster) to perform a “live bloodletting and lamb sacrifice” and a burning of Bibles to commemorate the building of a new campus chapel.</p>

    By the middle of this century, the number of Muslims worldwide will roughly equal those of Christians and by the century’s end will exceed them, making Islam the world’s largest religion. That’s according to projections in a new analysis by the Pew Research Center, which identifies Islam as the world’s fastest-growing religion, owing to higher fertility rates and the fact Muslims have the youngest median age of all religious groups. In 2010, 1.6 billion Muslims accounted for 23.2 percent of the total world population; Pew says that proportion could grow to 29.7 percent by 2050, and to 34.9 percent by...
