    The Berean Call ^ | February 16, 2018 | T.A. McMahon
    Tom: Nothing in the history of the modern church has induced believers to abandon their faith in the sufficiency of God’s Word like the pseudo-science of psychological counseling. Consider the following: the evangelical church is a primary referral service for counseling psychologists and psychiatrists. Many large churches have licensed psychotherapists on staff. Mission agencies are requiring their missionary candidates to be evaluated and approved by licensed psychological professionals prior to being considered for service. Christian psychologists and counselors are often better known and more respected by evangelicals than preachers and teachers. Who has not heard of psychologist Dr. James Dobson?...

    In our angry, divided, and polemical society, young Christians, eager for measured peace, encourage us to accept the good things our society brings. Do we always have to see culture wars? This is a laudable desire. Nevertheless, Christians enamored of modern culture run the risk of ignoring its underlying anti-Christian ideology and diluting the unique truth of the Gospel. Some have so adopted cultural norms that they are no longer even Christian. In my recent review of Brian McLaren’s The Great Spiritual Migration I quoted his statement that God must no longer be understood as the separate “omniscient, omnipresent and...

    NEW YORK The Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate elected unanimously today the Very Reverend Archimandrite Nathanael Symeonides as Metropolitan of Chicago. Immediately following the election, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America stated: I express my wholehearted congratulations on the election of Very Reverend Archimandrite Nathanael Symeonides as Metropolitan of Chicago, wishing the abundant blessing of God on the sacred ministry the Church has entrusted him with. The newly-elected Metropolitan has served as Deacon, Priest and Director of the Department of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Relations for a number of years, and I am certain that he...

    Gods accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. The eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; those of the barnyard hen in 21 days. The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days. The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. Notice, they are all divisible by seven. The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If...

    The purpose of this post is to begin what I hope to be a yearlong (2018) in depth study of the book of Daniel. Making real world application as we go along and encourage participation across all religious faiths, denominations, ethnicity and religious creeds and cultures. FULL Disclosure: As a Christian it is my sincere desire to always - always - always include the GOSPEL message as part of each discussion. Reason being, simply discussing the Historical Daniel without driving home the point of his message (Vision of future events - which have not yet come) would be tragic in...

    NC Register ^ | Jan 8, 2017 | John M. Grondelski
    Paris now has a vigorous new pro-life advocate for its archbishop! Archbishop Aupetit, 66, was something of a late vocation (if you only count the priesthood as a vocation): He was ordained at age 44, after a previous vocation as a medical doctor. He practiced medicine from 1979 to 1990 and taught bioethics until 2006. His book, LEmbryon, Quells Enjeux? (The Embryo: What Are the Stakes? Paris: ditions Salvator, 2008) is a vigorous defense of the unborn child. Archbishop Aupetit is very much a Renaissance man: As he notes in his book, We have tried to visit the different domains...
  • The Idea Of Race Is An Outdated, Invalid Scientific Concept. Lets Discard It

    The Daily Caller ^ | 1/17/2018 | John Conlin
    It is time to take the last step, the final step in the journey of Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr. and literally hundreds of thousands of other brave souls. This final step is to at last accept the truth; there is no such thing as race. It is a failed scientific theory from hundreds of years ago. It is a false concept that is only kept alive by our keeping it alive. There is no race gene. There is no White race. No Black race. Asian, Hispanic, all an illusion.

    Catholic Culture ^ | January 5, 2018 | editor
    Editor's Note: In a January 5 address to Italian primary-school teachers, Pope Francis called for an educational alliance between the school and the family, and encouraged education in ecological awareness. The Pontiff also said: Christian teachers, whether they work in Catholic schools or in state schools, are called to stimulate in the pupils the openness to the other as a face, as a person, as a brother and sister to know and respect, with his or her history, merits and defects, riches and limits.

Burning Man released their plans for 2018, appropriately theming the Black Rock based event I, Robot. Heres what they say about the event, originally posted on This years art theme will focus on the many forms of artificial intelligence that permeate our lives; from the humble algorithm and its subroutines that sift us, sort us and surveil us, to automated forms of labor that supplant us.

    Dear friends, I grew up in the world for 24 years before I came to Christ, so I know its thinking and ways because I once lived it and walked its course (Eph. 2:1-14). As I was at work today, they were playing the world's Christmas carols which have a secular and demonic mood to it of utopia through relativism and bankrupt human love; which excludes RIGHTEOUSNESS and Almighty God man's ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Rom. 1:18-32). One song that was played today was John Lennon's, So This Is Christmas (War is Over). I had to laugh as I listened to...

    Army atheist yells, God save me, as shells explode by Roger Griffiths This article arose from an exchange of information between CMIs translations facilitator Roger Griffiths and John T. Tolbert, an evangelist working with several language groups in Asia, primarily Vietnamese. Published: 12 December 2017 (GMT+10) John recalls, as a five-year-old, looking up at the sky, and realizing there must be a God. At 17 years, he joined the US Army, which was engaged in the Vietnam War. During basic training, an older colleague, hearing that John believed in God, gave him Mark Twains Letters from the Earth, which lampoons...
