  • Trump Objects to Mueller Testifying Before Congress

    NYT ^ | 5/5/2019 | By Michael Tackett and Maggie Haberman
    The president argued on Twitter that Mr. Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — which found no conspiracy between Moscow and Mr. Trump’s campaign but did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice — was conclusive and that Congress and the American people did not need to hear from Mr. Mueller. “Bob Mueller should not testify,” he said. “No redos for the Dems!”

    Christian Post ^ | 03/26/2019 | By John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris
    If you think of American Christianity as a pendulum, we’re currently at the opposite extreme from the First Great Awakening. When Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” he compared human beings with spiders, dangling by a thread over the fires of God’s just judgment, upheld only by His mercy. Accounts from the time tell of listeners who clung to the pillars of their churches, lest they fall through the floor into the Lake of Fire. Like I said, we’re no longer in this territory these days. In fact, according to Professor Michael...

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | 9/2/17 | Florentius
    In part one of this post, I looked at the vision of Perpetua—one of the earliest authentic Christian documents to describe directly a Purgatory-like state and to highlight the efficacy of prayer petitions for the dead. Others writing during the patristic age also expounded upon this idea in more or less detail, among them St. Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Origen, St. Augustine of Hippo, and St. Caesarius of Arles. One of the most clear references to Purgatory appears in a late 4th century work by Saint Gregory of Nyssa, entitled: “On the Soul and the Resurrection”. St. Gregory writes: “For...

    Do Not Be Deceived: Hell Is Real Msgr. Charles Pope • February 27, 2019 • Last Judgment – Michelangelo Buonarroti (1541)There is a verse from the Letter to the Hebrews that deserves attention because it is a more common problem than many imagine:See to it, brothers, that none of you has an unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But exhort one another daily, as long as it is called today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness (Heb 3:12-13).When most of us read a text like this, we think only of obvious...

    The panic attacks started after Chloe watched a man die... The median Facebook employee earns $240,000 annually in salary, bonuses, and stock options. A content moderator working for Cognizant in Arizona, on the other hand, will earn just $28,800 per year. ...Writing utensils and paper are also not allowed, in case Miguel might be tempted to write down a Facebook user’s personal information. This policy extends to small paper scraps, such as gum wrappers. Smaller items, like hand lotion, are required to be placed in clear plastic bags so they are always visible to managers. ...Fearing for his safety, Randy...

    WND ^ | February 15, 2019 | Craige McMillan
    Many of us like to blame God for our difficulties. The reason is that it absolves us of responsibility for our bad choices. It also ensures we won’t recover. Nations are groups of individuals clumped together, primarily by geography. In a democratic nation, if a majority of the voting population chooses wisely, the entire nation will benefit from those choices (even those who oppose the choices). In a democratic republic, such as the United States, we are one step removed from our responsibility. We don’t choose the policy directly; we choose the people who in turn choose the policies and...
  • Spiritual and Physical blindness...walk in the light pt 5

    And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. ( John 9:1-3)The Gospel of John contrasts the two kinds of blindness which afflict humanity. We see at the outset that the first kind of blindness comes as a result of original sin. One of the consequences of the fall of man, is...

    Early to Bed, Early to Rise, Work Like Hell and Advertise I’m sure there are many details of Internet advertising that I’m unaware of but I am aware that Internet access to me is important. Someone receives compensation for providing access to me. It is more important to sell me something but gaining access to me is the first step. It may only be worth pennies to have access to me but those pennies appear to be the force behind the Internet.

    In the death of the lost, one is instantly transported into the ETERNAL and whatever manner of life one has lived here in time on planet earth will rapidly dissipate to the REALITY of the ETERNAL. No matter the manner of Almighty God's death summons in a human's life, whether by peaceful, calm or tranquil means or by tragic, violent or monstrous means; the means (the execution there of) of one's death will infinitesimally pale to the ETERNAL REALITY in which one has been now placed in. For then ALL delusion is exposed and ALL fantasy and make-believe is shattered...

    Christian Post ^ | 12/24/2018 | By Leah MarieAnn Klett
    Responding to the question of whether or not Christians who commit suicide go to Heaven, ethicist Russell Moore said that because the blood of Christ covers sins past, present and future, the “last thing we do” does not determine where we will spend eternity. Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said he’s often asked the question by worried individuals whose loved one committed suicide. “They worry,” he said. “Does this mean because this person essentially the last act on earth was a sin, does this mean that that person is in Hell?...

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake,...

    For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.(Deuteronomy 32:22-24)The doctrine of the Divine judgment of sinners is terrible to truly contemplate. So terrible that many evangelicals are retreating from it...

    Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. ( Psalm 7:9-13)The Judeo/Christian teaching of a God of Holy wrath has by and large been rejected...

    Former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan died on Saturday at age 80. Annan served as Secretary General between 1997 and 2006. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001. In 2004, after archterrorist Yasser Arafat's death, Annan held a special meeting in the UN. The meeting included a "moment of silence." Responding to his death, Israel's Foreign Ministry called Annan one of the "pillars" of "multilateral diplomacy," and said he "devoted his life to achieving peace, reducing poverty, and fighting child morbidity." During his term, Annan opposed attempts to de-legitimize Israel, as well as attempts to deny the Holocaust....

    For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29)Paul has been discussing the righteous judgment of God, warning those who “rest in the Law” that knowing and even prizing the law does not exempt one from judgment according to truth. This could apply as well to those raised in the christian milieu. Neither baptism,...

    Voters in Ohio's 12th Congressional District appear to have narrowly elected Republican Troy Balderson in yesterday's special election, thwarting Democrats' hopes to flip another GOP-held seat ahead of the midterm elections.  The race came down to the wire, but the incumbent party ultimately prevailed.  There's a small chance that provisional ballots could trigger a recount, and that absentee ballots could shift votes, but left-leaning elections guru Dave Wasserman looks at the math and effectively calls the contest over, discerning that defeated Democrat Danny O'Connor would "need a miracle" to reverse the outcome.  For all intents and purposes, and barring major...
