    A Christian in the Philippines has been nailed to a cross for the 35th time to mark Good Friday and pray for world peace as faithful around the world observe the Holy Week of Easter to commemorate their belief in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. More than 100 people turned out to see Ruben Enaje, a 63-year-old carpenter and sign painter, and ten devotees be nailed to wooden crosses - real-life reenactments that have become an annual spectacle drawing tourists to rural communities in Pampanga province, north of Manila. The gory ritual resumed only last year after a three-year pause...

    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 1/27/24 | Chuck Ness
    Today's number one religion in the world is, "Self". We are told that each person has the right to decide what truth is, and anyone who publicly says otherwise is ostracized. Thus, upon the alter of "Self", Truth has been sacrificed. Even the truth about one's gender, has been twisted to the point that companies will terminate the employment of anyone who publicly declares otherwise.Truth has been discarded, because Truth is Christ, and the world has hated Christ from the beginning. Jesus tells us in John 14:6"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to...

    + + + In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. + + + Where to start when it comes to this fallen world and its inability clearly to make use of words? To define things and keep the definitions straight? To call a thing simply what it is and leave it at that? The first time a question mark was ever used as punctuation in Sacred Scripture, it was the devil speaking, “Did God say?” And because Eve entertained that doubt and acted upon it, you now live in a world where...

    Wernher von Braun (1912-1977), one of Nazi Germany’s leading rocket scientists, became a pioneer in America’s space program following World War II. But it was von Braun’s conversion to Christ that captured the attention of Assemblies of God radio preacher C. M. Ward. Ward interviewed the scientist in 1966, during which von Braun described the relationship between his newfound faith and his lifework in science.Von Braun’s interest in rocket science had been sparked by a desire to explore space, but he came to regret that his work was being used to cause tremendous destruction of human life. He had developed...

    There is a strange moment described in the gospels regarding the resurrection of Christ (in fact, there are several such moments). When Mary Magdalen first encounters the risen Lord, we are told that she “took Him for the gardener.” But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord,...
  • Who was Veronica? Tracking down one of the most beloved figures from Christ's Passion

    One of the more enigmatic figures from early Christian history is Saint Veronica—the woman known to Catholics from the Sixth Station of the Cross, who is said to have wiped the face of Jesus while He carried His cross on the road to Calvary. There is a memorable and beautifully presented sequence of scenes featuring Veronica in Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. But nowhere is the woman or the incident described mentioned in Sacred Scripture. To learn about Veronica, we must turn to extra-biblical sources. The first mention of a woman named Veronica associated with Our Lord may be...

    The younger brother of the late conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh described in an interview last week how his brother's faith deepened in the final year of his life and eliminated doubts about whether he truly surrendered to Christ. In a Friday interview with Evangelical author Joel C. Rosenberg, the editor-in-chief of All Israel News, apologist David Limbaugh opened up about the first time he learned his brother had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer from the talk show host's wife.The author believes this event likely happened in January 2020, 13 months before his brother died at 70...

    Mary, you are great because of your relationship with your Son and fidelity to the will of God. May I seek no other greatness. If we encountered the mother of our Lord in the street as a young woman of Nazareth, would we recognize her greatness? She who was set apart by God (made holy) for the accomplishment of His will wasn’t accompanied by retinues nor carried on litters. We would simply see a young mother going about her daily duties in service to her family—shopping in the market, collecting water, washing garments, et al. Just as our Lord was...

    The finale of the Disney+ series ‘The Santa Clauses’ was released recently, and Tim Allen said that he is pleased with the way it turned out, specifically noting the way Christmas was honored, despite saying that the format of a streaming series took some time to get used to. “We honor the Christian tradition without heralding it. It’s not — it is what it is. It’s a Christian holiday. So, we don’t belabor it, but we don’t ignore it,” said Allen. “I love the way we deal with it,” added the actor...
