    Church Leaders ^ | - July 18, 2017 | By Meredee Berg
    At the close of a 20-year run for the Women of Faith tour, the brand-new version of the women’s gathering with a much younger target demographic—the Belong Tour—was poised to take the reins as the next big event for evangelical women. But due to “critically low ticket sales and the high cost of producing these events,” the 2017 tour was canceled before the first scheduled event took place, according to the event organizers. The event billed itself as a two-day event for “every woman—for conservatives and liberals, young and old, married and single, those who go to church and...

    This video grab from YouTube shows Christian Pakistani Haroon Maqbool escaping from a U.N. detention camp on the Island of Lesbos to the Greek Mainland by hiding under the canopy of a cargo ship for 16 hours. The British Pakistani Christian Association is raising awareness of the plight of many Christian refugees who suffer persecution in refugee camps. Christian refugees have been blocked from seeking asylum on the Greek mainland after fleeing Islamic persecution in the camps in the Greek Isles.Muslim persecution of Christians from Syria, Afghanistan, and other Muslim countries has run rampant in the Moria refugee camp on the...

    Call me paranoid if you like, but I’m simply quoting what Tim Gill, the foremost LGBT political donor says in his own words: “We're going into the hardest states in the country,” he declares. “We're going to punish the wicked,” by which he means Christian conservatives. In short, if you will not comply with LGBT activism, be it as a minister or as a businessperson, you will be punished. That is Gill’s goal, and to deny it is to be in denial.According to Rolling Stone magazine, which interviewed Gill last month, he is the “Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement”...

    You just can't make this stuff up. President Trump and his supporters have been targeted non stop by progressives and the mainstream media since he assumed office, but this may take the cake. Last week, a group of religious leaders were invited to the Oval Office to meet with the president. They took the opportunity, as religious leaders do, to pray for our commander in chief.Johnnie Moore, founder and CEO of The Kairos Company, a public relations firm that works with several ministries, captured the moment. Such an honor to pray within the Oval Office for @POTUS & @VP ....

    British reporter Robert Fisk was on hand when the city was liberated and wrote: “The Greek Catholic Church of Our Lady is a place of shame, of burnt copies of the New Testament, paintings slashed with knives – many were lying in strips of gold and red fabric beside the altar’s broken cross – and mosaics chiselled from the walls.” Fisk also mentioned that the terrorists had “gouged out the eyes of the mosaic saints.”What is on display in these photos is not merely abomination and sacrilege; it is loathing and hatred of the spirit of Christ; it is...

    MANILA, Philippines - The expansion of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) continues in the United States with the acquisition of a second town: the long-abandoned Johnsonville in Connecticut, reportedly for $1.85 million. Glicerio Santos Jr., general auditor of the INC, announced over the weekend that their church acquired Johnsonville as part of its aggressive expansion in the US. Reports said the seller of Johnsonville was the Meyer Jabara Hotels, which bought the property for $2.5 million in 2001. Reports also said the sale of the property was quick; emissaries first visited Johnsonville only in late June. The INC earlier acquired...

    Over two decades, one prospective buyer after another passed over the abandoned village in the Connecticut countryside. There were requirements to preserve its historical character and problems with the septic system, not to mention rumors that it was haunted. So when a Filipino church came forward and bought the deteriorating collection of Victorian-style buildings last week, local officials were elated the village would be saved from rotting away. An official with the church, Iglesia Ni Cristo, says it is not daunted because it has a history of repurposing shuttered buildings for its fast-growing membership. "We purchase a lot of abandoned...

    An evangelical pastor who led a prayer circle in the Oval Office Monday – during which people laid their hands on President Donald Trump – says the experience was “surreal” and “humbling.” Televangelist Rodney Howard-Browne, a South African native who came to the United States in 1987, shared a post on Facebook about the prayer circle he led alongside his wife, Adonica Howard-Browne. The photo shows both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in prayer: Yesterday was very surreal for @ahowardbrowne & I. 30 years ago we came from South Africa to America as missionaries. Yesterday I was asked by...

    Christians believe humankind is God’s all-time favorite creation because He tells us so in the Bible. But leftist/socialists often known as Democrats think humans are an evil, toxic blight bent on destroying the planet through heinous activities like gassing up our cars. Boom. This is the war of the opposing worldviews going on today and it’s worldwide. It encompasses every important issue including man-caused global warming. Leftists think homo sapiens started out as a random blob of cells zapped by electricity (no word on where the cells and electricity came from without a primal source such as God) that evolved...

    Two Christian street preachers have been found not guilty of inciting public disorder at Bristol Crown Court. In February, Michael Stockwell and Michael Overd were convicted at Bristol Magistrates Court of an offence under the Crime and Disorder Act, after police claimed that the crowd around them became disorderly as a result of their preaching. They appealed to the Crown Court and after a 3 day hearing on Friday were found not guilty of religiously aggravated harassment. Barnabas Fund provided an expert witness, who demonstrated that the content of their preaching was largely quotations from the King James Bible (the...

    A new report produced by one of the nation's leading social conservative activist organization claims that there has been 76 percent increase in religious freedom violations and a 114 percent surge in documented hostility toward Christian views on marriage and sexuality in the last three years. In a June 2017 report titled "Hostility to Religion: The Growing Threat to Religious Liberty in the United States," the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council highlighted various instances in which Americans' First Amendment rights have been infringed upon or instances in which they faced hostility over their religious views on sexuality that are in...

    American Vision ^ | July 3, 2017 | Gary DeMAr
    We don’t celebrate July 4th. We celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. What are we celebrating? Do most Americans know? The Declaration of Independence was a bold statement against tyranny. We live in a time of greater tyranny. The taxes were minimal in 1776, and yet the people were willing to take a stand against them. A number of states where the GOP is in charge are calling for massive tax increases to fund a growing Leviathan. There were other grievances. Take some time to read them here. Then compare them to what’s taking place today with legislatures and the...

    RAQA, SYRIA (AFP) – An ivory-coloured rosary swings from the rearview mirror of Abboud Seryan’s pickup truck as he speeds through Syria’s Raqa, inspecting the positions of fellow Christian fighters taking on the Islamic State group. Lively music blasts through the car speakers while the thin 23-year-old, wearing a military-style cap and a revolver tucked into his waist, waves to comrades in the western district of Al-Romaniya. IS was ousted from the neighbourhood earlier this month as part of the US-backed offensive to defeat the jihadists in their northern Syrian bastion. The ground assault is being carried out by the...
