    The Bridgehead ^ | 6-27-17 | Jonathon Van Maren
    It is perhaps somewhat ironic that the last time Americans were informed this incessantly of the threat Russia posed to the United States, it was called the Soviet Union and the Left was insisting that everything was being overblown. This time, in spite of a glaring lack of evidence, it is the Left that is announcing from its perch in the mainstream media that Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s puppet, and that Russia is the evil puppet-master pulling the strings of American democracy. The sinister Russian bear is growling in the East, we are told, and we should all be...
  • Mark Zuckerberg Compares Facebook To ‘Churches’ and ‘Community Support Groups’

    Mark Zuckerberg recently stated his desire to have Facebook act as a community for it’s users, replacing “churches” and “community support groups.” Speaking at Facebook’s first Communities Summit in Chicago last week, Mark Zuckerberg discussed a number of topics, including Facebook’s new mission statement which was changed from “connecting the world” to a new goal, to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” ... CNBC reports that later at the rally, the Facebook CEO discussed the use of Facebook as a community tool to bring it’s users closer together, “It’s so striking that for...

    We are going to go through this book in a very slow fashion - no hurry. This subject is completely a matter of faith. Those that reject or do not possess a particular preference for the King James Bible are welcome to visit and participate - but this is not an argument thread. I am not responsible to convince anyone against his or her will. Either you have faith in a God that is able to preserve His Word or you do not - but you are not going to convince us to reject our faith that the King James...
  • Why I cannot go back to being an atheist

    Sometimes my natural skepticism asserts itself, but I cannot walk away. My father-in-law is one of the fairest, most patient, and most virtuous people that I know. He’s always available to help out, his capacity for forgiveness is immense, and when he’s unavailable it’s usually because he’s caring for or teaching people in his community. He’s intellectual honest, and he’s a profoundly decent human being. He’s also an atheist. He’s part of the reason why I have respect for people in the atheist community, and why when I write about atheism I usually have positive things to say. I don’t...

    Unsealed ^ | 6/21/2017 | Gary
    Everyone ultimately has to make a decision: will they trust themselves and their understanding or will they trust God and His.  This choice isn't just for unbelievers, but for those who call themselves "Christian", as well.  For very, very soon those who have placed their faith in themselves and their works and abilities will discover whether that was a wise or foolish decision.  As for me, I have nothing to boast or glory in save the Cross of Christ.  I'm staking everything - my life, my soul, and my future on Jesus Christ and Him alone.  I'm taking the...

    If and when the Rapture of the Church occurs and Christians are spirited off the face of the earth to Heaven, how will the secular governments and media explain the phenomenon? Millions of people will suddenly be gone from the societies and populations of the earth. Many who thought or said that they were Christians, will still be here. No born-again Christians will be here. The Billy Graham article is cited to provide information.
  • Trump is more religious than people realize -- and better for religious people, too

    Washington Examiner ^ | 06/07/2017 | Frank Pavone,
    It is with optimism and hopeful anticipation that I head out to a meeting President Trump is hosting Thursday for religious leaders. There is a reason for my optimism. Although he doesn't get credit for it, Trump is far more religious than many people realize. In my conversations with pastors who have personally ministered to him, I have been made aware that he's extraordinarily open to the word of God, to the power of prayer, and to growing in the life of the spirit. In other words, he is tuned into the Lord's movement in his life. This is great...
  • Why is sola fide important?

    06/04/2017 12:29:15 PM PDT · by ealgeone · 1,023 replies ^ | unknown | Got Questions Ministries
    Question: "Why is sola fide important?" Answer: Sola fide which means "faith alone" is important because it is one of the distinguishing characteristics or key points that separate the true biblical Gospel from false gospels. At stake is the very Gospel itself and it is therefore a matter of eternal life or death. Getting the Gospel right is of such importance that the Apostle Paul would write in Galatians 1:9, “As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” Paul was...

    According to legend, the line represents the blow with which St. Michael sent the devil to hell. A mysterious imaginary line links seven monasteries, from Ireland to Israel. Is it just a coincidence? These seven sanctuaries are very far from each other, and yet they are perfectly aligned ( Sacred Line of Saint Michael the Archangel represents, according to legend, the blow the Saint inflicted the Devil, sending him to hell.In any case, it is surprising how well these sanctuaries are, in fact, aligned. But the details of such alignment are also astonishing: the three most important sites, Mont...

    I was happy to see an ongoing Ping List belonging to Freeper WhatNot presented as a series called . . . Offsetting. These threads are discussions centering around God's Word as preserved in the King James Bible. The thought occurred to me that we might engage in a study/discussion of a book that is considered among Bible believers as the best studies on the King James Bible available. I'm new to the whole PING list thing but I think I can get it going if any might have an interest in this 'book club' approach. If this works - perhaps...

    The number of college students with no religious affiliation has tripled in the last 30 years, from 10 percent in 1986 to 31 percent in 2016, according to data from the CIRP Freshman Survey. Over the same period, the number who attended religious services dropped from 85 percent to 69 percent. These trends provide a shapshot of the current generation of young adults; they also provide a preview of rapid secularization in the U.S. over the next 30 years.

    Over the course of my life I watched the Left evolve from a counter-culture phenomena into authoritarians. Along their journey, they necessarily deny self-evident truths. When I was a kid, the Left engaged in discourse. I watched them on William F. Buckley’s Firing Line. All of the big libs showed up to engage Mr. Conservative. I learned that while groundless opinions are eventually destroyed, rational arguments and judgments are confirmed over time. I believed that for most of my life. Today, I’m not as sure. In a new high school course on the Constitution during my junior year (1971), I...

    MORNING MAY 9 Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. If in this life if we only hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.After that ye believed ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.

    APRIL 28 MORNING Behold the Lamb of God. It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He is brought as a lamb...

    The Bible teaches that the Christian life is one of constant growth. When you were born again, you were born into God’s family. It is God’s purpose that you will grow into fill stature and become mature in Christ. It would be against the law of God and nature if you were to remain a baby and thus become a spiritual dwarf. In 2 Peter 3:18, the Bible says that we are to grow. It implies steady development, constant enlargement, increasing wisdom. For one to grow properly certain rules must be observed for good spiritual health. 1.Read your Bible daily....
  • Film Review: ‘The Case for Christ’

    04/08/2017 9:07:28 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 27 replies ^ | 4/6/17 | Joe Leydon
    An intriguing faith-based detective story in which an investigative reporter becomes a true believer. Although it sporadically errs on the side of sentimentality and simplification, “The Case for Christ” sustains interest, and even generates mild suspense, while offering a faith-based spin on the template of an investigative-journalism drama. Director Jon Gunn and screenwriter Brian Bird have shrewdly reconstituted Lee Strobel’s best-selling book about his road-to-Damascus transition from outspoken atheist to devout Christian as a kind of theological detective story. Of course, there’s never any real doubt as to how the story will be resolved.

    “Books don’t change people,” John Piper observes. “Paragraphs do. Sometimes even sentences.” A good sentence is a gift. We love finding complex truth shrinkwrapped in clear, simple, memorable form. It’s why Charles Spurgeon and C. S. Lewis are dominating a newsfeed near you. Even God likes pithy statements—at least enough to breathe out a whole book of them. But one-liners aren’t always helpful. Sometimes, in our desire to simplify truth, we can trivialize and even obscure it. And to obscure the truth is to tell a lie. Here are five popular Christian clichés that are not biblical, and therefore need a memorial service....
