    Looks like that many Christians forgot that Russian Orthodox Church was and is controlled by KGB. Their priests were and are KGB agents. Yes, they want to conquer world, not with Russian Christianity but with long range planned Russian Communism which they exported successfully with Communist religion "Theory of Evolution" to the West. Now they are pretending that they are good guys with their phony Christianity. Wolf change clothing but never his nature and useful idiots getting hooked on this Putin's "Christianity" hoax. Lenin, the founder of the first Communist state, put it simply: "First we will take Eastern Europe,...

    It's something most Christian parents worry about: You send your kids off to college and when they come back, you find they've lost their faith. The prospect of this happening is why many parents nudge their kids towards Christian colleges, or at least schools with a strong Christian presence on campus. But in many ways, the damage has been done long before our children set foot on campus. That's the message from a recent article in the Atlantic Monthly. My friend Larry Taunton of the Fixed Point Foundation set out to find out why so many young Christians lose their...

If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready.Psalm 7:12. IF THE SINNER turn not, God will whet his sword. So, then, God has a sword, and he will punish man on account of his iniquity. This evil generation hath laboured to take away from God the sword of his justice; they have endeavoured to prove themselves that God will clear the guilty, and will...

    Lets imagine for a moment that you find yourself in a difficult position one that has led to abject panic about your future career, the fate of a valued relationship, or whether youll even be able to make ends meet. Lets also stipulate that your difficulty is largely your fault. You made some short-sighted, bad decisions that precipitated the crisis, but questions of responsibility are moot now all that exists is the crisis, the stress that has overtaken your life. To be sure, theres a way forward, a way out of the crisis, but even the most attractive...

    If you ever wonder why the weasel west media always calls Putin a dictator or demonizes him, just look at what has been happening recently. By watching the US news last week one would think all of America has turned gay with the Supreme Court ruling on married same-sex couples. The New York Times called it a, "major victories for the gay rights movement". Some even compare it to racial equality. If Putin was the dictator the West claims, the new law that defends Christianity would have been in effect immediately after the pussy riot blasphemy which happened last year....

    While poorly decided U.S. Supreme Court cases are a dime a dozen, prior to last Wednesday, two stood out among the most wretched and constitutionally groundless in American History. First was the 1857 Dred Scott decision. Among other things, it robbed African-Americans of both their U.S. citizenship and their dignity. Next came the 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade. It has robbed over 55 million U.S. citizens of their very lives. For the first time in American history, the high court imagined a phantom constitutional right for women to dismember alive their own pre-born children. Both of these cases are...

    Obamas war on the Christian religion, particularly the Catholic variety, has claimed another casualty in the Middle East. The Vatican confirmed that Syrian priest Franois Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge. According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra. A graphic video of unknown origin- linked below- shows a crowd of Islamic militants gathered in a circle around three men kneeling on the ground. Many of the onlookers were...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | June 30, 2013 | Dr. Susan Berry
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Former President Jimmy Carter said on June 28 that both Christian and Islamic religious leaders share the blame for mistreating women across the world. During an international conference on women and religion, Carters examples of religious authorities continuing doctrines of male superiority included the Catholic Churchs practice of banning women from the priesthood and some African cultures mutilation of the genitalia of young girls. Describing these doctrines as theologically indefensible, Carter said they contribute to an environment in which political leaders passively accept violence against women, sex-trafficking, and inequality in the workplace. There is a great aversion among men leaders...
  • Russia passes anti-gay-law

    Vladimir Putin's government wants to promote 'traditional Russian values' over what it sees as western liberalism and tolerance. Photograph: Mikhail Klimentyev/AP Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, has signed into law a measure that stigmatises gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality. The lower house of Russia's parliament unanimously passed the Kremlin-backed bill on 11 June and the upper house approved it last week. The Kremlin announced on Sunday that Putin had signed the legislation into law. The ban on "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" is part of an effort to promote traditional Russian values over western liberalism, which...

    As we prepare to celebrate the birth of this great nation, we find ourselves increasingly overwhelmed by political, judicial, and even church leaders who are dragging her down into an abyss like we have never seen before. In our darkest moments as a nation, we have always relied on our moral foundation to keep us from falling too far. Although past leaders may have personally failed both morally and ethically, our foundation was solid. But now, leaders are weaving their own moral and ethical blindness into the laws of the land. They are forsaking our moral foundation by rejecting God's...

    Kevin Durant, the 24-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder star forward, recently shared his love for Jesus Christ and baptism story at Hillsong Church in New York City. Durant may play basketball in Oklahoma City, but the basketball star revealed why he wanted Hillsong Church pastor Carl Lentz to guide him spiritually. Durant admitted that he was drawn to Lentz because of the way he treated people and liked the fact that the pastor was unfazed by his celebrity. "I thought you were weird first of all," Durant said while visiting Hillsong and speaking at the service last Sunday. "Where I come...

    The Gospel According to Man of Steel By Kevin Williamson Superman is an object of dispute at least comic-book-nerd dispute between Judaism and Christianity. One camp sees Superman as Moses in tights: an infant sent away by his parents to avoid certain death, discovered by members of an alien culture who adopt him as their own, who eventually discovers his true identity, whose characteristic activity is delivering his people to safety. They note that Superman was created by Jewish artists (writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster) at a time of Jewish crisis (1933), and that as an...

    Pravda, Russias legendary Communist newspaper, is now ridiculing Barack Obama for his weakness, his incompetence, and his acts against Christianity. Xavier Lerma and Pravda provide us with a strong Russian perspective on Obama and Obamas adverse effects on the United States of America. Not so fast Mr. Hope and Change. Haven't you heard?

    Barack Obama said he wont force Christian churches to hold gay weddings. Not yet, anyway. The Examiner reported: President Obama, in his statement hailing the Supreme Courts decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, promised that he wouldnt try to force religious institutions to conduct gay marriages. On an issue as sensitive as this, knowing that Americans hold a wide range of views based on deeply held beliefs, maintaining our nations commitment to religious freedom is also vital, Obama said. How religious institutions define and consecrate marriage has always been up to those institutions. Nothing about this decision ...
  • Help for homosexuals

    Homosexuals can try and twist the facts about the homosexual disorder and usher despicable disdain and hatred against religion all they like but that will not change the truth. Sexuality has an intrinsic meaning and direction which is not homosexual. The meaning and direction of sexuality is to bring about the union of man and woman, and in this way give humanity posterity, children, future. This is the determination internal to the essence of sexuality. Everything else is against sexuality's intrinsic meaning and direction. This is a point we need to hold firm, even if it is not pleasing to...

It appears that ..freedom of speech and ..freedom of the press are merely antiquated notions that have passed their prime, as well as their expiration dates.
