  • Indiana showed us that religious liberty arguments don't work. Need to fight the Sexual Revolution.

    April 23, 2015 (CrisisMagazine.com) -- I am a very committed, very public advocate of marriage as a gender-based institution. Many of my fellow proponents of man/woman marriage cite religious liberty as an argument against redefining marriage. While I have great respect for those who promote this view, I must respectfully disagree with their assessment.The uproar over the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act demonstrates that religious liberty arguments don’t work anymore. I take no pleasure in saying this. But religious liberty arguments are not compelling enough to induce our fellow citizens to sacrifice something they value, namely, sexual liberty.I can think of...

    Dr. Adam Kotsko, an assistant professor at Shimer College in Chicago, Illinois, believes that there is no such thing as sexism against men and that Christianity is just another way to say "White Supremacy." Voicing his opinion on twitter, Dr. Kotsko has repeatedly slammed Christianity, going so far as calling it another name for "White Supremacist Patriarchy." Here is just a small sample of his tweets and retweets on the subject:

    Christian Post ^ | 04/24/2015 | Wallace Henley
    The United States Supreme Court may soon liberate the biblically conservative church from old "prejudices" that should have long ago been "jettisoned," forcing it into "rightly bowing to the enlightenments of modernity," in the words of a recent writer in The New York Times. Homosexuality must be removed from the "sin list" and, according to an MSNBC commentator, traditional marriage proponents must be forced "to do things they don't want to do." Sadly, this crusade will be like the Marxist "liberation" movements that promised to "free" people, but really were about control and suppression. The culmination may come as the...

    “Are you guys religious?” It’s a question every pro-life activist doing educational outreach has heard. The question is always leveled suspiciously, as if the truth of our abortion victim photography is contingent on whether or not pro-life activists believe in God.The response to this question is simple: Abortion is wrong because it is an act of violence that destroys a human being developing in the womb. On this everyone from the late atheist Christopher Hitchens to the pope can agree. Yes, many of us are Christian, both Protestant and Catholic. But a basic overview of embryology textbooks used in medical...

    They call it the Kaduri Revival, and reports over recent months have confirmed the teachings of one of Israels most venerated rabbi are leading Jews time and again to accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah. And face persecution. Baptist preacher and radio host Carl Gallups says the threats facing Messianic Jews now in Israel is reminiscent of what we read about in the New Testament in the early days of the church. There, he said, Jews who followed Jesus Christ were persecuted. And today, they are facing the same hardships and persecution the early church faced, he said. Gallups...

    The Florida senators dabbling in multiple denominations shows a country more and more inclined toward a consumerist approach toward religion. American presidential candidates are often a good lens for looking at the state of American religion. For instance, the fact that 2012 was the first election in American history where no candidate was a mainline Protestant, after that branchs virtual monopoly on the White House, reflected the mainlines precipitous decline in numbers and influence over the 20th century. While the two vice-presidential candidates were boringly Catholic, Barack Obama ran as a nondenominational, basically unchurched Christian, and Mitt Romney as a...

    Gov. Scott Walker's father is the Rev. Llewellyn "Llew" Walker. Sen. Ted Cruz's father is the Rev. Rafael Bienvenido Cruz. Both are conservative Baptist ministers. But that is not the only thing they have in common. Both Baptist ministers were born in the same year, 1939. Could this be a mere coincidence, or is God trying to send America a sign in these troubled times? We are living in an America where the leadership of both parties no longer believes in the difference between morality and immorality.

    We often hear from atheists how religion is dying out as mankind comes to see the clear light of reason. Atheist intellectuals speak disparagingly about religion and predict that mankind is on the cusp of a new age in which religion will simply disappear as science, technology and reason are in the ascendant. The facts indicate exactly the opposite. It is religion which continues to grow around the world while the statistics indicate that agnosticism and atheism are dying out.

    The American Spectator ^ | April 15, 2015 | George Neumayr
    Obama's Liberationist Military: It drives out Christian chaplains and hires utopian social engineers. The military under Barack Obama has increasingly embraced the philosophy of the sexual revolution. At the same time, it reels from the consequences of that revolution. Headlines in recent months suggest that moral discipline within the ranks continues to deteriorate. Lawmakers decry reports showing a 50% increase in reports of military sexual assaults. One would think a military with such problems might want to retain its Christian chaplains, not drive them away. Yet that is the effect of its decision to prioritize political correctness.

As far as Salon and other leftist media outlets are concerned, they’re just as lethal as the Islamic State and al-Qaeda – and the only reason why you haven’t heard of them but have heard of the Islamic terror groups is because of the mainstream media’s deeply ingrained “Islamophobia.”If this sounds absurd, it’s only because it is.

In the ensuing e-mail conversation, several professors rejected the idea that there is any universal truth, and one professor even described the whole concept of a search for truth...

    A new study shows Christianity on the decline in the wealthy West, with Islam surging. What Would Jesus Say? Its not what you think. A study released by the Pew Forum last week demonstrates that the future of the religious world is rapidly and dramatically changing. Differences in fertility rates and the high incidence of conversion make Islam the worlds fastest-growing religion. And, if current rates continue, by 2070 Islam could be the worlds largest. Between now and 2050 the number of Muslims is projected to rise to 2.8 billion, a 35 percent increase. While India will continue to be...

Mike Pence said Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act would not protect Christian bakers or florists who refuse their services to same-sex weddings. And the white flag went up again. Politics follows culture. And the cultural revolution of the '60s is triumphant.

    Whenever people today say that Christianity needs to update and adapt its moral standards for the 21st century, I hear echoes from 100 years ago. Back then, the calls for change had less to do with morality and more to do with miracles. But the motivation was similar, and the results are instructive. What rocked the early 20th century was the call of many church leaders to adapt the Christian faith to the scientific age of discovery. One could not expect thinking men and women to accept at face value all the miracles in the Bible, the thinking went. The...

    For some secular liberals, the Constitution isn't the only "living, breathing document." The Bible is, too. For evidence, look no further than Frank Bruni's latest New York Times column, which argues that "homosexuality and Christianity don't have to be in conflict in any church anywhere." According to this line of argument, Christians ought to engage in "a conversation about freeing religions and religious people from prejudices that they needn't cling to and can indeed jettison, much as they've jettisoned other aspects of their faith's history, rightly bowing to the enlightenments of modernity." Now, Bruni's core argument is not without merit....

    The Narrow Path ^ | Written By Steve Gregg
    For centuries, the essential meaning of marriage was universally understood (and taken for granted) in Western civilization, and, with very few modifications, in the pagan world as well. Because a marriage was always seen as the defining core of a family, providing a context for bearing and rearing children, its purpose and nature were taken to be self-evident, and seldom was thought to require defining. Among those societies informed by Scripture, marriage was also understood to be necessarily heterosexual, monogamous and life-long. With the coming of the sexual revolution of the 1960s, many of these assumptions began to be eroded...

The latter placates this generations political-moral sensibilities, but he hardly fits the profile of a person who gave rise to a religion claiming billions of followers.

    It was after the crucifixion of the Messiah of Israel that Satan and godless Israelites rejoiced in their demonic triumph of unrighteousness. They thought that they had done away with This Man, this Miracle Worker, this Preacher of RIGHTEOUSNESS, this violator of the Sabbath, this One who claimed to be Almighty God the Son and it was exhilarating to their godless mind (Matt. 27, Luke 23). As the Sabbath day was about to begin these godless men made their preparation to finish their Feast of Passover and partake in their man made traditions (Matt. 15:7-11, 23, John 18:28). Satan the...

This is our fight, and that is why I'm...

    Bishkek, April 3, Interfax - Russia will continue raising the issue of the protection of Christians in the UN, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. "No one was going to ignore this issue [of Christians' protection]. It was raised in the meeting of the [UN] Human Rights Council and a statement was adopted, which was signed by 65 countries. It was initiated by Russia, Lebanon and the Vatican with Armenia's support," he said responding to a question about the possible support by Russia of the initiative to protection Christians in the light of the situation in Kenya.

    Rush Limbaugh answered a callers concern about the anti-Christians that are taking over by saying those in that particular activist camp are being fueled by Democrats who simply hate Christianity. First, the caller, a self-described U.S. Coast Guard veteran, speaking of the recent furor generated by Indianas new Religious Freedom Restoration Act: What am I supposed to do? These anti-Christians that are taking over, it seems like, dont realize this country was founded on Christian values and morals. Have they lost their mind? And then, Limbaughs response: No. They just have always opposed the founding of the country. This is...

    Have you ever heard of Theudas? How about Judas of Galilee? They were would-be messiahs in the first century. How many followers do these men have today? Zero, zip, nada. Of course, weve all heard of Jesus Christ. One-third of humanity professes to believe in Him. But I guarantee you we would never have heard of Him had He not risen from the dead. Whoever you are, whatever you believe, you have a vested interest in looking into the issue of Jesus resurrection from the dead. There are millions today who simply dismiss the message of Christianity out of hand...

    I originally wrote this a year ago. It being Holy Thursday, I think it's appropriate to revisit the topic. Instead of Christianity becoming more cohesive and strong in America, it's weaker than ever. We must remindourselves of our purpose inbelieving in Christ. There is no better time than Easter weekend.Ive seen some eyes opening, one by one, to the fact that Christianity in the US is fractured, and that it was fractured purposely by those pursuing an agenda to advance LGBT causes at the expense of religious liberty. An excellent piece by Joe Carter is one example of such...

    Corporate leaders and chambers of commerce are at war with those evangelical Christians who have decided to reassert themselves in the Republican political process. This war is eerily reminiscent of an earlier time when there was friction between the business wing of the GOP and Christian activists. Make no mistake -- the rise of variations of "religious freedom" bills in GOP-dominated legislatures around the nation is no coincidence. They are supported and backed by skilled political pros and religious leaders who are tired of being left out of the American political process. They are especially weary of being treated as...

    The Muslim and Christian populations could be nearly equal by 2050, with Islam expected to be the fastest-growing faith on the planet, according to projections released Thursday, April 2. The Pew Research Center's religious profile predictions assessed data from around the world on fertility rates, trends in youth population growth and religious conversion statistics. "Over the next four decades, Christians will remain the largest religious group, but Islam will grow faster than any other major religion," according to the report. The authors predicted there will be 2.76 billion Muslims on the planet by then, and 2.92 billion Christians.Those figures...

    One of the rallying cries of opponents of Indiana's religious freedom law is that people shouldn't be discriminated against because of "who they love." But radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh flipped that around on his show on Wednesday. Critics of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act say it allows people to use their religious beliefs to discriminate against gay people. Proponents say it only allows business owners to refuse to perform their services, such as at same-sex weddings, if doing so is a violation of their faith.

    We have addressed the accusation before that the pre-trib rapture theory was invented by a Scottish girl named Margaret MacDonald in the early 19th century. This is now widely known to be factually incorrect and in fact there are numerous references to a pre-trib rapture in late 18th century American writing, as well as contemporary (at that time) Catholic writings such as Manuel Lacunza's The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty. Additionally, Chuck Missler has brought to light a writing from "Ephraem the Syrian" (b. 306; d. 373 AD) where this early Church deacon wrote in unequivocal language the...
