    President Trump's campaign recently issued a round of digital ads asking people to support his reelection bid as he stands up to those targeting statues, monuments, and memorials. One of the ads, which ran on Facebook and Instagram, featured a photo of a statue of Jesus along with the words, "WE WILL PROTECT THIS." There's only one problem: The statue isn't in the United States. The photo depicted Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's iconic Christ the Redeemer statue.

    The Church of England is “too white” while “Jesus was a black man”, according to the new Archbishop of York. Speaking to The Sunday Times, Stephen Cottrell praised the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, and said his inauguration this week as a white man replacing outgoing Archbishop John Sentamu — who is black — is “awkward” for the church. “The leadership of the Church of England is still too white, and I hope under my watch we’ll see further changes on that,” he said, asserting that the church has work to do “addressing the deep systemic issues of exclusion and...

Posting on Instagram to his 130 million followers, Bieber shared a selfie of himself while urging fans to turn to Jesus during hard times. He wrote: Thank you Jesus for my life.

  • The truth about white Jesus statues; What did Jesus Look Like?

    Christian Post ^ | 06/27/2020 | Michael Brown
    What, exactly, did Jesus look like? Was he black? Brown? White? Red? Yellow? We know that he was a first-century, Galilean Jew. But, beyond that, no reliable description of his appearance has been left for us. There is a statement recorded in the Mishnah, the earliest code of Jewish law (compiled roughly 220 A.D.) attributed to Rabbi Ishmael, who lived from 90-135 AD. He said, “The children of Israel . . . are like boxwood, neither black nor white but of an intermediate shade” (m. Negaim 2:1). So, according to a rabbi who lived within one century of Jesus, the...

    The Anglican church should rethink depictions of Jesus as a white man in traditional Christian imagery, the head of the Church of England said Friday. Justin Welby, archbishop of Canterbury, was asked in an interview with BBC Radio 4 if the Western mindset that Jesus looked Caucasian needs to be reconsidered in light of the Black Lives Matter movement. “Yes of course it does, this sense that God was white … You go into churches [around the world] and you don’t see a white Jesus,” he said. “You see a black Jesus, a Chinese Jesus, a Middle-Eastern Jesus — which...

    A group of evangelical pastors gathered at Seattle's CHOP zone earlier this week to pray and declare that they will defend houses of worship and statues of Jesus after activists called for tearing them down amid Black Lives Matter protests. Brian Gibson, founder of the Peaceably Gather movement and pastor of His Church, denounced Shaun King's call to remove "white Jesus" statues and other activists trying to remove Christian symbols and monuments in a movement that began with hatred and vandalism toward Confederate statues. "The call from Black Lives Matters leaders to destroy images of Christ and deface houses of...
  • The Nations That Forget God... why we are dissolving pt 2

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalm 9:17)In my last article I related how I recently prayed an exasperated prayer to God, not really expecting an answer. I literally cried out “WHY?” because I was grieved and upset at the rapid deterioration of the USA and the West, spiritually, morally and otherwise. Almost immediately I had received a very clear answer in my soul, which consists of three passages of Scripture, Romans 1, Psalm 2, and Deuteronomy 28. Please consider the lesson taught in Deuteronomy chapter 28 with me, and it’s implications...

    The Son of Man who suffered and died for the sins of all mankind is not at all constrained by our petty differences and fights over skin tone. The iconoclasts of 2020 are wasting their time toppling Thomas Jefferson and defacing George Washington when they could be shattering the stained glass windows of churches and disfiguring sculptures of Jesus Christ — the true root of America’s rot, according to Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King. “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always...

    Author's Note: Interested readers who missed Vol. 2 – 13 of this series can click here,  but Vol. 1 is here. In our culture, there is an unfortunate trend, as stated in this October 2019 Pew Research Center headline: “In U.S., Decline of Christianity Continues at Rapid Pace.” Naturally, this means fewer people will be attending church and studying the Bible. However, those of us who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are steadfast in our faith and strive to operationalize our love for Him by being “Christ-like” in all we do. That sentiment points to ‘Christ in you the hope...

    There are multiple groups active during the protests that are taking place in cities across America. Primarily, there are those peaceful protestors that are seeking to have their voices heard, justice enacted, and society improved. I applaud the peaceful protestors. As a family, we have participated in MLK Day marches and pro-life marches both locally and nationally. Speaking freely and assembling peacefully for justice are core principles to our country’s founding. A second group, however, are those who rage by spray painting monuments, destroying property, and vandalizing whatever they can. I’ve been a part of this group, too. In my...

    The white and black oppressors of the lawless Left Democratic Party, who abhor Almighty God the Creator and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 1:18-32) only seek to agitate, control, use, enrage and scare their black Democratic voters and to keep them on their state plantation. The very ones who are their lawless oppressors are usually put back in power each time by Black America; making heavier their chains of social ills. The Left is horrified of losing their political stranglehold and power and truly care nothing about black America. The black population is only a vessel to be used and oppressed by...

    “They did this for no reason. It’s not going to bring George back here. George is in a better place than we are. Last night, I’m going to be honest, I wished I was where George was. ... These people are tearing up our livelihood.”This is how Stephanie Wilford, a disabled African American woman who lives in south Minneapolis, responded to the recent destruction in her community. She obviously had nothing to do with the tragic death of George Floyd, but she has become a victim of those who are perpetrating violence in response to it. A woman threw a...

    The Bible contains several accounts of Jesus dealing with lepers, but these historical narratives might not be telling us the full story, some scholars are now claiming. "Rather than healing and cleansing the lepers, it seems Jesus actually just gave them an air high five and said, 'Stay home, save lives' before moving on so as not to get infected," said Dr. Robert Belling, Dean of Doubt Formation at Yale Divinity School. "It was the smart thing to do. It's how Jesus loved His neighbor. And may we all live by His example by not ever going back to work...
