    I give my parting thoughts on the Mohammed Hijab-David Wood debate which took place at York College last week, as well as dissect the Muslim approach to "debate," and explain how the Bible does show Jesus's sonship and lordship.

  • Herod's Death, Jesus' Birth and a Lunar Eclipse

    There are three principal reasons why the 4 B.C. date has prevailed over 1 B.C. These reasons were articulated by Emil Schürer in A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ, also published in the 19th century. First, Josephus informs us that Herod died shortly before a Passover (Antiquities 17.9.3, The Jewish War 2.1.3), making a lunar eclipse in March (the time of the 4 B.C. eclipse) much more likely than one in December. Second, Josephus writes that Herod reigned for 37 years from the time of his appointment in 40 B.C. and 34 years from...
  • Painting of Jesus survives 7-alarm fire that burned Massachusetts church to the ground

    A seven-alarm fire that tore through a 150-year-old church in Massachusetts miraculously spared a painting of Jesus Christ, WFXT reports. The piece of artwork, which hung near the front doors of First Baptist Church in Wakefield, Mass., somehow survived the massive blaze — which was likely caused by a lightning strike — completely unscathed.

    White Double of the First Class THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN—Holy Church—is seen bringing forth out of her treasure “things new and old.” Although she can never add new dogmas to the deposit of Faith entrusted to her, as the ages go by she is seen understanding more perfectly and explaining more fully those treasures in her keeping. She is a living body, not a statue, and she can develop, though she can never change her nature. Hence, guided by the Holy Spirit of him who has promised to be with her not merely for a few centuries but unto...
  • Christian, What Do You Believe? Probably a Heresy About Jesus, Says Survey

    Christianity Today ^ | 10/23/2018 | Jeremy Webber
    American evangelicals are “deeply confused” about some core doctrines of the Christian faith—and the fourth-century heretic Arius would be pleased, according to a new survey. For the third time, Ligonier Ministries has examined the State of Theology in the United States, conducted by LifeWay Research and based on interviews with 3,000 Americans. The survey, also conducted in 2014 and 2016, offers a detailed look at the favorite heresies of evangelicals and of Americans at large. Ligonier wanted to know what Americans “believe about God, salvation, ethics, and the Bible.” “Overall, US adults appear to have a superficial attachment to well-known...

  • If Jesus is truly your Lord and Savior, don't worship Satan

    If the title looks plain idiotic, it's not. On October 31, many who identify as being believers in Christ Jesus will actually do just that. Their church may have a spooky "trunk or treat" or festival, or a costume contest and they'll take their kids to it. This year the costumes will be even more horrific than the last, but it's all in fun. No. If you or your church participate in the celebration of Satan's day, you are in league with the Evil One and are not truly a Child of the Living God--Jesus. Get yourself and your family...
  • Birth Control; Separating Sex From Fruitfulness...Gender 4

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into...

  • The Current Gender Confusion Is Gnostic To The Core...Gender 4

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;(Romans 1:25-27)We live in baffling times. The very...

    And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.(Genesis 2:23-25)For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,...

    Ligonier ^ | 10/3/18 | Sinclair Ferguson
    Let us begin with a church history exam question. Cardinal Robert Bellarmine (1542–1621) was a figure not to be taken lightly. He was Pope Clement VIII’s personal theologian and one of the most able figures in the Counter-Reformation movement within sixteenth-century Roman Catholicism. On one occasion, he wrote: “The greatest of all Protestant heresies is _______ .” ...How would you answer? What is the greatest of all Protestant heresies? ...What he wrote was: “The greatest of all Protestant heresies is assurance.” A moment’s reflection explains why. If justification is not by faith alone, in Christ alone, by grace alone —...

    Clutching My Rosary ^ | 1868 | Dom Prosper Gueranger
    White Double WONDER-WORKER AS IS THE SAINT OF TODAY, fulfilling her dying prophecy, “After my death I will let fall a shower of roses,” she is her own greatest miracle. Her world-wide popularity, to which is united in most cases a devotion which has reorientated many a life, and in all has been a stimulus and an encouragement, is recognized to be phenomenal. It has been said with respect to doctrinal definitions that the faithful have a passive “infallibility,” whereby their need answers exactly to the definition; the same would seem to be true in the case of devotions...
  • The Left; Cruelty Towards Women

    10/02/2018 12:54:46 PM PDT · by pastorbillrandles · 2 replies
    “… The Tender mercies of the wicked are cruel…” Proverbs 12:10 “… And He said to the Serpent, I will put enmity between thee and the woman…” Genesis 3Those who are proponents of the left in this nation, pretend to be so compassionate and concerned , for minorities, women, children, “working families” etc. . Supposedly Leftists are the caring ones, for they defend the interests of the weak, disenfranchised and powerless. I am not qualified to judge anyone’s intentions, but the truth is illustrated in the above mentioned proverb,that such “compassion” as the left practices, is actually quite cruel, particularly...
  • Troubler, Why Do You Trouble US? ...a Pastor's Lament for a backslider from Christ

    Oh Troubler, why do you trouble us? We had just talked to you, we thought you were doing better… Why did you take your eyes off of Him who comes to us in the midst of every storm? What did you see, when you gazed at the Babylonian garment? What misery was so great that you were willing to sell out, just to relieve it? Foolish one, why did you stray? Did it work put for you? Are you better off now, that we who love you are made miserable? Wouldn’t it be better to suffer than to sin? Which...

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.(John 14:1-3)I have been told that the words above, spoken by Jesus on the eve of his crucifixion, are almost word for word the typical engagement speech to a young bride to be, in...

    Dear Freepers and Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Today was the START of the victory we so desperately seek. The Word of God says that "the prayers of the righteous avail much"… and today we saw the hand of Lord work. But the kingdom of hell is a 24/7 organization… and they have not given up. Have you noticed that none of the Democrats on the judicial nominating committee have made much if any statements of any kind? They have gone into a silent running mode… if we think that they have "fired their last or best shot" we're deluding...
