    Converting people to another religion is illegal in Nepal, but missionaries are willing to risk prosecution to spread the Christian faith. "Victory to Jesus," Korean pastor Pang Chang-in cries as he blesses a new church in the village of Jharlang, in the foothills of the Himalayas. The congregation of the newly converted raise their hands in prayer. Most are from the indigenous Tamang community, who used to follow the Lama faith, an ancient spiritual practice. In Pang's eyes the Tamang people are "poor financially and spiritually". "So, a miracle takes place and the whole village converts," he says. Missionaries, many...
  • GA Megachurch Pastor Suggests Growing Weed on Church Property to Attract Black Males and Teach them to Farm

    It is absolutely ridiculous and absurd for Jamal Bryant to suggest that his megachurch in Atlanta should grow weed on its property in order to attract more black males. Not only is this a terrible idea, it is also illegal. I mean, come on, who in their right mind would think that a church, of all places, should be growing a controlled substance? And to suggest that it would help to attract black males and teach them farming? Give me a break. But don’t take my word for it, just listen to what the officials in Georgia have to say...

    A well-known and prominent pastor, Mike Todd, of transformation church made headlines earlier this year after he preached a sermon essentially turning tithing into a lottery where a lucky tither would win a million bucks. And prior to that, Todd made headlines in January 2022 for spitting in his hands and rubbing them into a congregant’s face as part of a “sermon” illustration. Mike Todd has quite a following, both in his church and on social media. Yet, Todd appears to care less about the God of the Bible and more about a false god that he has created in...

  • A ‘missionary to Christian nationalists,’ Phoenix pastor urges conversion, not confrontation

    (RNS) — Phoenix pastor Caleb Campbell has a theory about the growing number of Americans who are labeled as Christian nationalists. Most would rather go to Cracker Barrel than storm the Capitol. Many see themselves as good Christians who love their country. But somewhere along the way, they began to think being a good American and being a Christian were one and the same. “Their whole life has been the intermingling of their American civil religion and their Christian religion,” said Campbell, pastor of Desert Springs Bible Church and a self-described missionary to Christian nationalists. To help his fellow Christians...

    The Humble Heart. According to the Scriptures, Lucifer was an angel of beauty, he became enamored of himself and no longer wanted to be the choir master to worship God, but wanted to be equal to the Lord God Almighty. God judged him and cast him out of heaven to the earth and he became Satan, the accuser, and the first created being who sinned. In contrast, Jesus, as the Son of God, loved his Father and humbled himself. In the beginning of creation, God said “let us make man in our own image” and He created them male and...

    A Christian pastor of a trendy Miami church has been forced out for allegedly having steamy affairs with three women from his congregation, two while he was still married, DailyMail.com can reveal. David Stocker, 46, was fired from Brave Church in the city's Westchester district in April after its overseeing body – the Peninsular Florida District Council of the Assemblies of God – found him guilty of 'gross sexual misconduct and immoral actions.' The clergyman, who had preached at the church since 2014, is also accused of using the church's credit card to fund some of his illicit encounters, including...

    Challenging popular Evangelical belief, controversial televangelist Creflo Dollar, one of America's most flamboyant proponents of the prosperity gospel, has renounced tithing and all his previous teachings on the subject as "not correct." He also urged his followers to "throw away every book, every tape and every video I ever did on the subject of tithing" but says he will not apologize for his error. In a Sunday sermon billed "The Great Misunderstanding," the founder and senior pastor of the nearly 30,000-member World Changers Church International headquartered in College Park, Georgia, said he is aware that his declaration will cause him...

  • The Gift to the Grandparents.

    The Gift to the Grandparents. When I was carrying our children and felt their life moving within me, my husband told me I had a special glow about me. Later, when holding our babies, as they lay innocent and trusting, smiling as they danced with angels, I thanked God for giving me these wonderful and precious gifts. The Gift to the Grandparents. In the daily acts of loving them, sometimes it was hard. One year, due to our military service, we moved five times; one time I could not afford to buy a new mattress and we had no furniture,...

    Bringing the Brokenhearted Home. When God wanted to give the law to Moses on Mount Sinai, thunder, lightening, fire and smoke shook the mountain; at the outer edge of Gods' Holiness was an unapproachable barrier of light. God sent His only Begotten Son. Jesus journeyed on earth seeking the brokenhearted, those who were living with a law of stone in their hearts, lost in a condition wherein man was not able to produce a place for a home to be built, because of the sinful foundation that moved by the force of the evil which never rested. Jesus, at the...

  • Saved from the Fire.

    Saved from the Fire. Every spring, we take an inventory of our fruit trees to see which ones have survived the winter; those that died will be cut down and burned for firewood. New trees will be replanted, and when the flowering fruit trees bloom it is a lovely sight. One year, near harvest time, we had a big red squirrel get to the ripe fruit before we could pick it. The heavily laden squirrel, obviously inebriated from fermenting fruit sugars, was rolling around in the orchard, drunk. A Red-tailed hawk swooped down, and ate the squirrel, the next thing...
