    A new study from the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University has found that just 37% of Christian pastors in the United States have a biblical worldview, demonstrating that spiritual awakening is "needed just as desperately in our pulpits as in the pews," according to the pollster.The nationwide study of about 1,000 Christian pastors found that just slightly more than a third (37%) of the U.S. pastors hold a biblical worldview. The majority (62%) possess a hybrid worldview known as Syncretism.The study, released Thursday, showed that 41% of senior pastors — as compared to 28% of associate pastors —...

    Thanks for joining our study. For weeks now, readers have noticed a “news flash” about Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s documentary “The Harbingers of Things to Come.” Note that I have promoted his movie with no compensation but believe that Rabbi Cahn’s prophetic, biblically-based messages and God’s dire warnings about our national future are calamitous and valid. To help us learn, raise awareness, positively react, and respond to the movie’s message, Rabbi Cahn created a study guide based on the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) verses featured in the film and relevant to God’s warnings. Today, we will examine three of those passages....

    The United States was founded by deeply religious Christians, and its tradition is rooted in what’s known as Judeo-Christian values. Other countries also are founded on, and embrace, Biblical values as well. It should go without saying that Israel, as the Jewish state, was re-established on Biblical Jewish tradition which is played out in almost every aspect of Israeli society. When soldiers are inducted into the IDF they are given a Bible. Shabbat, the Sabbath, is not just the cornerstone of the weekend, it’s a weekly affirmation of God’s creation and the need, indeed the gift and obligation, to rest....
