  • Georgia Schools Are Teaching Kids "Allah Is the Same God Worshipped By Jews and Christians"

     There’s nothing necessarily wrong with children learning about Islam. But learning about Islam to the exclusion of Christianity, and that Allah is the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians, has a lot of parents angry. Several Walton County parents say their children are being forced to learn about Islam, and want the option to exclude their children from these lessons. The teaching of Islam has banded together a group of upset parents. “My daughter had to learn the Shiad, and the five pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert, but they never once learned anything...

    I am looking for a good study Bible that will really help the reader understand God's Word. I prefer it in NKJV. I currently have the Tyndale Life Application Study Bible. That may be the best out there but I'm doubting that as the notes will skip swaths of scripture or not really explain well enough to grasp. So, being as freepers ARE the smartest, most resourceful bunch in the whole wide world, I would really welcome your input and direction on this.
  • God is Wrong if EPA is Right

    God “saw all the things that he had made and they were very good” yet EPA policies imply God’s creation, especially CO2-exhaling humans, is very bad. Who’s right? Today, I’ll use science to prove God right and the EPA wrong in its war on men—and the energy, safety and jobs men extract from refining natural resources like coal and oil. In Genesis 1:26-31, God makes men in His “image and likeness,” and tells men to “fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that...

    Let's get something straight. America has never been a "Christian nation." Those who believe otherwise have an obligation to say what part of our history was uniquely Christian. Was it when slavery was legal? How about when women were denied the vote? The Gilded Age? The Roaring '20s? America is a nation in which Christians -- and every other religious and nonreligious person -- have the right to practice their beliefs in private and public free of government intrusion, except in some cases of life-threatening medical conditions in which the courts have occasionally intruded. It may make some evangelicals feel...

    America, and the West, seem to be sinking into the abyss, and it’s time to ask: Is God’s judgement now inevitable? In contemplating the answer, we should consider some of the obvious reasons why judgment could come soon: The blood of millions of innocent lives is shed and body parts are sold for profit in this country, while our government supports and funds such monstrous activity.God’s purpose in Creation, and His declared purpose for marriage, has been ignored and ruled against by the highest court in the land.Police authority is devalued by a great many people and undermined by political...

    As a defiant Kentucky clerk sat in jail Friday, choosing indefinite imprisonment over licensing gay marriages, her lawyers approached the microphones outside and compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King. Around the country, other supporters reached for Biblical heroes, comparing her to Silas and Daniel, imprisoned for their faith and rescued by God. It's precisely the narrative gay rights advocates had hoped to avoid. But as Davis' mug shot rocketed around the Internet, it became clear that the gay rights movement must battle this idea that Christianity is under siege, said Kenneth Upton, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, a law...

    The fourth circle of Hell, as envisioned by Dante Alighieri in The Divine Comedy, is reserved for the avaricious and the profligate. It is where those whose lust for getting and spending knew no bounds in life are punished in the afterlife by being battered endlessly with heavy weights. Notable among the souls damned for their greed, Dante wrote, "were clergymen and popes and cardinals, within whom avarice works its excess."

    How can we determine what is morally right? The answer to this question -- the most important question human beings need to answer -- is a major difference between Left and Right. For conservatives, the answer is, and has always been, that there are moral truths -- objective moral standards -- to which every person is accountable. In America, this has meant accountability to the Creator, the God of the Bible, and to Judeo-Christian values. For the Left, the answer has always been -- meaning since Karl Marx, the father of Leftism -- that there is no transcendent source of...

Knight writes, The details of the mathematics involved in Gdel's ontological proof are complicated, but in essence the Austrian was arguing that, by definition, God is that for which no greater can be conceived. And while God exists in the understanding of the concept, we could conceive of him as greater if he existed in reality. Therefore, he must exist. Even at the time, the argument was not exactly a new...

I'm also certain your classmates never pointed to posters of their teen idols to say "anyone but them!" In other words, socialism isn't natural;...

For instance, President Obama released his 4th of July weekly address for 2015 with one key ingredient missing: God. Unlike his weekly addresses during the previous two years, where the President concluded his speeches with God Bless You All (2014) and So, God bless You All. And may God bless The United States of America (2013), Obama left out any mention of God in his recent address. Instead, this year, he...

Same-sex marriage is the law of the land, as the right of gays and lesbians to marry is right there in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1868. We just didn't see it. Tony Kennedy spotted what no previous court had detected. The absurdity of the decision aside,...

    Well, that was predictable. On Friday, with its majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, five judicial imperialists perched high atop the U.S. Supreme Court bench called the Supreme Being a liar. They presumed to invent, out of thin air and through judicial fiat, a constitutional right to sin-based gay marriage. (Father God, as you exact Your perfect justice on America, please have mercy upon Your faithful.) The horrific nature of this illegitimate decision cannot be overstated. It makes a mockery of the institution of marriage, something of which God alone has the authority to design and define. It represents a...

    A friend of a woman mourning the loss of her three-year-old wrote in to The 700 Club asking what to tell her friend when asked how a good God would let some ill children live but let her child die.

Dont think Robertson himself would have the gall to say such a thing to a woman grieving her three-year-old? Heres the full quote: "As far as Gods concerned, He...

    The Chaplain of the House of Representatives is so sensitive to others beliefs that even though hes given 44 prayers this session of the House, he hasnt said the word Jesus once, and will not say it. From Roll Call: The House chaplain has not made one reference to Jesus in the 44 prayers he has given in the 114th Congress. Conroy, who became the chaplain in 2011,consistently begins his prayers by referencing eternal God or gracious God and usuallyconcludes them by saying, May all that is done this day be for your greater honor and glory.
