    The American left has plenty to complain about these days. Liberals who support standard Democratic Party platform planks such as legal abortion, more gun control, and public schools over private schools or homeschooling, have been drenched in bad news coming from various Supreme Court cases and polls showing a widespread rejection of their agenda in the coming elections. There is plenty of blame to go around, at least in their minds. The conservative majority on the Supreme Court is near the top of the list of villains for many. Conservative elected officials passing laws they disagree with are also common...

    Republican lawmakers are questioning the constitutionality of a Biden State Department program to fund the spread of atheism and humanism internationally. At the end of June, a group of 15 Republican members of Congress wrote to President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken about a State Department funding program from April 2021 that "would award grants of up to $500,000 to organizations committed to the practice and spread of atheism and humanism, namely in South/Central Asia and in the Middle East/North Africa." Noting that both atheism and humanism "are official belief systems," the GOP legislators wrote, "Any such...

    The Biden administration is raising up an army of atheist missionaries. The government recently announced plans to fund a program that would send Americans abroad to promote atheism and humanism in South/Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The program would be funded by your tax dollars - as much as a half million dollars per organization. They are literally going to use a government tithe to spread a godless message of hopelessness to the world. Congressman Jim Banks, the Republican from Indiana, is demanding answers — writing in a letter to President Biden and Secretary of State Antony...
  • From Time Magazine's 'Is God Dead?' in 1966 to The New York Times' Call to 'Give Up God' Today

    Townhall ^ | 04/18/2022 | Dr. Michael Brown
    On April 8, 1966, the pictureless front cover of Time Magazine asked a bold and direction question: “Is God Dead?” This was just two days before Easter Sunday, and in the decades that followed, it became increasingly common for anti-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Bible essays to be featured in various secular publications at this time of year.Now, in keeping with this anti-God attitude during this sacred season, an April 15 op-ed piece for the New York Times was headlined, “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God.” How deeply sensitive for the Times to post this anti-God essay on...
  • New York Times chooses the holiest week of the year to attack God

    American Thinker ^ | 16 Apr, 2022 | Andrea Widburg
    The guest essay literally proposes killing God. “The God-shaped hole” posits that humans are hardwired to seek meaning through a divinity. Certainly, no culture has ever been without a God—and that’s true for Marxist cultures, which have sought to make a god of man, always with deadly results. The most recent example of this comes from a guest essay at the New York Times from a very angry, lapsed Orthodox Jew who insists that the world would be better if it “passed over” God. It’s a sad, foolish essay but one that the Times thought worth running on the holiest...

    Despite an increase in the overall number of atheists worldwide, new research reveals that the population of religious people is growing at a faster pace than that of their secular counterparts. Lifeway Research has identified “7 Encouraging Trends of Global Christianity in 2022” based on data collected by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at the Massachusetts-based Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Specifically, the data titled the 2022 Status of Global Christianity report, demonstrates that “religious faith is growing faster than the irreligious.” The 2022 Status of Global Christianity report includes statistics about Christianity from 1900, 1970, 2000 and mid-2022...

    "It is getting worse," David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors, told Christian Headlines.... Chinese Communist Party Chairman Xi Jinping "knows that he cannot stamp out" the nation's Christians, Curry said. There are an estimated 96 million Christians in China, the report says. "And so he is slowly strangling Christian faith, and he's doing it with high-tech surveillance. They watch, and they track everybody in what they're doing – through facial recognition and other things. Imagine if the IRS owned every camera in every restaurant on every street in America. We would be very concerned that the IRS has...

    Five billion years ago, the universe was Earth-less. It remained that way till a vast number of asteroids smashed together and compacted into a giant rocky orb. But that raises a question: The Earth's surface is 70% water, so where'd the liquid come from? A long-standing theory is that a water-rich class of asteroids, called carbonaceous or C-type asteroids, could've pelted the Earth during its creation and brought along water. There's a caveat though, and the C-type asteroids may be only half the story....
  • Ex-atheist CS Lewis was once a ‘vigorous debunker of Christianity.’ Actor who played him reveals what imploded that worldview

    Legendary Christian writer and thinker C.S. Lewis went from “vigorous debunker of Christianity” to one of history’s most transformative and apologetic faith voices. But most people today are much more acquainted with his hit books, like Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia, than the finer details of his compelling faith journey. Nearly 60 years after Lewis’ death, that spiritual evolution is getting a fresh look through the popular, new film, “The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis.” Actor Max McLean, who plays Lewis in the movie, recently told Faithwire about the author’s stunning transformation from “hard-boiled...

    oday C.S. Lewis, the man whose literary works such as The Chonicles of Narnia book series is known as a titan of the Christian faith. When he was alive, Lewis’s deep insights, wisdom, words of comfort, and reason were all sought after, particularly during World War II, when he addressed the people of Great Britain on the BBC, and thereafter. After he passed away in 1963, C.S. Lewis’s writings would continue to bring valuable insight, wisdom, words of comfort, and reason to generations looking for serious answers about God, life experience, the fractured world around us, pain, suffering, and how...
  • Harvard University: From once promoting Christ to now promoting an atheist chaplain

    Christian Post ^ | 09/03/2021 | Jerry Newcombe
    The Reverend John Harvard must be rolling over in his grave. America’s oldest and most prestigious university, named in the Congregational minister’s honor, just promoted a “devout atheist” to be their head chaplain. This is not surprising since Harvard jettisoned its Christian roots long ago. But it’s shocking nonetheless. What’s the point of a chaplain if he doesn’t even believe in God? The Dailymail writes: “Greg Epstein, 44, who was raised in a reformed Jewish household in Queens, New York, was named president of the chaplains for the religious community at the school after serving as Harvard's 'humanist chaplain' since...

    Harvard University was founded as Harvard College in 1636. Its stated purpose was: “To train a literate clergy.” Among its mottos were, “Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae” (truth for Christ and Church) and “In Christam Gloriam” (to the glory of Christ). Now, Harvard has hired an atheist as its chief chaplain. And no, this is not a poor joke. As reported by the New York Post, “This spiritual leader doesn’t need a higher power. “Harvard University’s organization of chaplains is getting a new president to coordinate the campus’ Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and assorted other religious communities. Only the new president,...

    A report on a survey of 214 religious education teachers in Ireland is raising alarm that students who practice a religion, particularly Catholicism, are being bullied for their beliefs. In Ireland, religious education is a compulsory subject for all pupils. The survey studied teachers in post-primary schools, which are typically schools for children over the age of 12. The report, “Inclusive Religious Education: The Voices of Religious Education Teachers in Post Primary Schools in Ireland, Identity, bullying and inclusion” was authored by Dr. Amalee Meehan and Derek A. Laffan, MSc. The National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre and Dublin City...

    This is the dream of all God-rejecting Liberals everywhere, to live in a world unencumbered by the perfect, righteous and holy God who will hold them accountable, and instead invite you to ‘imagine’ a a place where there is no hope of Heaven. That place is called Hell in the Bible, and you better pray that the imagination portrayed in that song does not come true for you. So after 17 months of a global pandemic, the whole world is coming together to imagine living without God. In your King James Bible, the word ‘imagination’ appears 14 times, and in...

    Not all ideas are equal. Some have less intrinsic value. Some are downright bad. Some are inherently dangerous.Yet one of the reasons that the framers of our nation protected the expression of ideas was so that most could be evaluated and the individual could choose to reject or advance them.Team Biden is full of bad & inherently dangerous ideas. 1. Biological sex is meaningless. 2. Racial makeup means everything. 3. Life has no value. 4. Laws, boundaries & accountability don’t matter. 5. Private property doesn’t exist. 6. Women are bleeding/birthing people. 7. Fathers are oppressive. 8. Faith & Belief are...

    The latest survey of the American Worldview Inventory from Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center found 43 percent of millennials born between 1984 and 2002 said they “don’t know, care, or believe that God exists.” Only 57 percent said they were Christian. Researchers found that belief declined between generations. Eighty-three percent of those in the Silent Generation (born 1927-1945), 79 percent of baby boomers (born 1946-1964), and 70 percent of Generation Xers (born 1965-1983) identified as Christian. Thirty-one percent, 28 percent, and 27 percent respectively said they “don’t know, care, or believe that God exists.” Those who believed “you treat...
