    Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Earlier today I saw the correspondence of an angry conservative who was tired of the negativity of other conservatives. He raged that all we do is continually point out the bad. He went on to accuse those who focus on the negative trends as cowards, treacherous, and treasonous...fat asses who...

    A moral and spiritual awakening is taking place in the United States, and it is being helped along by a group of ministers in Capitol Ministries who hold regular, bipartisan Bible studies with members of the U.S. government. According to Brian Hansen, international director with Capitol Ministries, among the several weekly Bible studies in Washington is one attended by 11 out of 16 members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet.

    The bishop’s 2,100-word teaching document, titled “The Real Presence,” was released Sept. 16, six weeks after the publication of a Pew Research Center study showing that a majority of Catholics in the United States do not believe that the bread and wine used at Mass become the body and blood of Christ.
  • NIV Quest Study Bible: Why Does God Allow Bad Things to Happen?

    Bible Gateway Blog ^ | September 16, 2019 | Jonathan Petersen
    No one knows the mind of God, except for God himself. He is infinite; we are finite. We are not entirely clueless about his character, however, because God speaks to us through his Word. According to the Bible, one reason bad things happen is because the whole world is under the control of the evil one (1 John 5:19). That’s why Jesus taught us to ask God to deliver us from the evil one when we pray (Matthew 6:13). Even in the Garden of Eden — in paradise, before Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit — Satan was...
  • Believing Is The Only Requirement For Salvation...against OSAS pt 5

    Therefore they said to Him, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” ( John 6:28-29)Salvation cannot be obtained by our personal merit. Thank God , because there is not one of us who could ever merit salvation. We cannot earn it, nor can we who have received the gift, ever lose it due to lack of merit. The scriptures make it obvious, “By the works of the law shall no flesh be justified...
  • Kanye West preaches ‘radical obedience’ to Jesus during Sunday service in Atlanta

    Fox News ^ | 09/16/2019 | Caleb Parke
    Kanye West sounded a lot like a preacher testifying about Jesus during his most recent Sunday service held in an Atlanta, Ga., megachurch. Regular attendees at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant pastors, were treated Sunday morning to a 10-minute sermon by the hip-hop artist, FOX 5 reported. Among the hundreds of worshippers were rappers T.I., Chris Tucker and 2 Chainz. "Jesus, let's be specific," West shared, starting off singing and then speaking. "Because the road to hell is paved with, 'Oh, I'm just a good person.'" The audience cheered as the "Jesus Walks" rapper sang...

    Bible Gateway Blog ^ | August 21, 2018 | Nabeel Qureshi
    How does a committed and passionate follower of Islam reconsider his faith and become an outspoken apologist for Christianity? This is a story of being introduced to Jesus through friendships, investigations, dreams, and visions. What follows is a conversation between the late Nabeel Qureshi (@NAQureshi), author of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus (Third Edition) (Zondervan, 2018)—the first book to win ECPA Christian Book Awards® in both New Author and Non-Fiction categories—and his friend David Wood, who led Nabeel to consider the veracity of the claims of Jesus Christ. The discussion took place in Atlanta, Georgia, during the Evangelical Theological Society’s annual...
  • How to Live the Bible — What the Bible Says About Work

    Bible Gateway Blog ^ | September 4, 2019 | Pastor Mel Lawrenz and Jonathan Petersen
    We all work. Those who work in offices or on highways, those whose work is taking care of family and household needs, those who work at being students. Work is built into the created order of things. The Bible has much to say about the dignity of work, which helps us to see our labor as more than “just a job.” And, of course, we should keep in mind the labor of many who may not receive a paycheck for what they do, but whose contribution is just as valuable. Studying at the university or changing diapers or volunteering at...

    Although the Bible is not an ancient history textbook, it does report events that have been confirmed by other historical works. Consider the following examples: Archeological digs and ancient Assyrian records confirm the Bible’s portrayal of King Sennacherib’s invasion of Judah (2 Kings 18:13–19:37). Until recent excavations at Tell Mardikh uncovered tablets mentioning Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:1–29), scholars dismissed the existence of both cities as a biblical legend. The Hittites were also considered a biblical legend until their capital and records were discovered in modern-day Turkey. The palace of King Sargon, an Assyrian ruler mentioned in Isaiah, was uncovered...
  • Continuing In Faith Is Not A Work...OSAS pt 4

    Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”( John 6: 28-29)I have already received quite a bit of helpful feedback as a result of posting these articles. This is a subject that interests a lot of people ,(and rightfully so, for what could be more important than the nature of Salvation? ). Several times in the 205 comments I received on Freerepublic.com, indicated that my position that it is possible to...
  • I have been Saved, yet Am Being Saved...

    For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. ( I Corinthians 1:18-19)For the word of the cross is foolishness to those whoare perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I Will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.” ( I Corinthians 1:18-19...
  • NIV Quest Study Bible: How Do We Know the Bible Is True?

    Bible Gateway Blog ^ | August 26, 2019 | Jonathan Petersen
    Question One: How do we know the Bible is true? (Hebrews 4:12) According to the Bible, all Scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16). Peter confirmed this when he said that those who wrote the Bible were not speaking on their own but spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21). Many parts of Scripture are directly attributed to God through use of phrases like This is what the Lord says (e.g., Exodus 4:22). Finally, Jesus often quoted from the Old Testament and affirmed it as being God’s Word. Prophecies that were later fulfilled...

    PJ Media ^ | 08/28/2019 | Tyler O' Neil
    AMC's show Preacher has set a new record for irreverence, making Jesus Christ out to be an adulterer and mentally handicapped. Yet on Sunday, the show managed to become even more offensive. In one episode, the character portraying Jesus smokes a joint and imagines himself robbing a bank. Next episode, he will negotiate with Adolf Hitler regarding the apocalypse.Early in the episode, Tyson Ritter — whose character is listed as "Humperdoo, Jesus Christ, Jesus" on IMDB — smokes a joint with Ruth Negga, playing Tulip O'Hare. He reminisces about having sex with a married woman in the Garden of Gethsemane...

    If you’ve seen the classic 1987 movie The Princess Bride, you can’t fail to remember the word inconceivable. The brainy Sicilian, Vizzini, overuses the word as he, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya, stealing away with Princess Buttercup, find themselves pursued by a mysterious Man in Black. Time and again, the Man in Black overcomes obstacles to close the distance, and each time Vizzini exclaims to himself, “Inconceivable!” Eventually, Inigo Montoya objects in his heavy accent: “You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” I worry that the same could be said of...
