    Zacharias “made her pray with him to thank God for the ‘opportunity’ they both received” and, as with other victims, “called her his ‘reward’ for living a life of service to God,” the report says. Zacharias warned the woman—a fellow believer—if she ever spoke out against him, she would be responsible for millions of souls lost when his reputation was damaged. The findings, alongside details revealed over months of internal reckoning at RZIM, challenge the picture many have had of Zacharias. When he died in May, he was praised for his faithful witness, his commitment to the truth, and his...
  • Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents Rod Dreher Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents

    The New York Times bestselling author of The Benedict Option draws on the wisdom of Christian survivors of Soviet persecution to warn American Christians of approaching dangers. For years, émigrés from the former Soviet bloc have been telling Rod Dreher they see telltale signs of "soft" totalitarianism cropping up in America--something more Brave New World than Nineteen Eighty-Four. Identity politics are beginning to encroach on every aspect of life. Civil liberties are increasingly seen as a threat to "safety". Progressives marginalize conservative, traditional Christians, and other dissenters.

    Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them...Jesus Christ gave us His Olivet Discourse to explain the signs signalling his immanent return. He warned that we will not know the day or the hour of His return, however we will know the general time (Matt 24:33). He likens those who hear him to young brides waiting for their bridegroom....

    The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), America's largest and most powerful LGBT lobby organizations, is pushing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to target Christian educational institutions, demanding that the Biden Administration strip colleges that adhere to rules and positions opposing homosexuality of their accreditation. The HRC's "Blueprint for Positive Change," which offers 85 recommendations, proposes eliminating non-discrimination exemptions for religious colleges if they refuse to abandon the biblical position on marriage. Al Mohler, a theologian and president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, sounded the alarm on the HRC's push in an essay titled "A Direct Threat to Christian Education." The...

    How did a tiny tribe of desert nomads become so important to history? Of all the tribes of people, why is it that a group of pastoral tribal nomads, who were minorities then and minorities now, seem to have such an enduring presence in our world? Why is the Judeo-Christian god chosen by more people on the planet than any other? Because ideas and the details matter. Their ideas have stood the test of time and ended up shaping many assumptions we take today to be self-evident in Western civilization.

    Tell It Not in Gath Posted onMonday, January 18, 2021 by Douglas WilsonIntroduction There is little doubt in my mind that America is currently being chastised by the Lord, and He must have sent a great angel of frenzy upon us to do it. One of the evidences of such chastisement is that a goodly number of our leading lights and solons appear to have lost their minds. And in addition to all the confusions involved with that, the people generally are surging this way and that, and feelings run high, or hot, or both, and a lot of crazy...
  • If We Are to Be Hated, Let It Be for the Right Reason

    Townhall.com ^ | January 18, 2021 | Michael Brown
    On numerous occasions, Jesus promised us, His followers, that we would be hated. That is something we should expect and even embrace. Let’s just be sure we are hated for the right reasons. Being hated for the wrong reasons is not something to be embraced, let alone celebrated. Jesus said, “You will be hated by everyone because of Me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22). But note those words “because of Me.” We will be widely hated because of our association with Him, because of our preaching in His name and because...

    The 117th United States Congress is made up of 88% Christians, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. In a report called “Faith on the Hill,” the Pew Research Center analyzed the religious affiliations of all 531 members of the 117th Congress and compared them to the religious demographics of the U.S. as a whole. Pew obtained the data from a questionnaire conducted by CQ Roll Call asking members about their religious backgrounds. The publication of the Pew report came just one day after the 117th Congress was sworn into session on Jan. 3. Pew has been analyzing...

    The film begins in Lafayette Indiana, where a young man by the name of Jeremy Camp (KJ Apa) heads to Calvary Chapel College in Murrieta, California. The first night he gets settled in, Jeremy goes to a Christian concert to see a Canadian band called “The Kry”, and meets its lead singer, Jean-Luc Lagoie (Nathan Parsons). Jeremy asks Jean-Luc how to make it. Jean-Luc tells Camp that “it’s not about making it. It’s about what our songs give people.” Then he asks Camp, “So what do you want to give people?” This question forces Camp to see where his priorities...

Gun And A Hotel Bible is seeking to break ground in untraditional way as a Christian movie. This movie definitely doesn’t preach to the choir. Rather than mimicking stories of people who are strong in their faith, this one is intended for those people who have more questions than answers about religion.

    In 1479, the kingdoms of Castile and Aragón were united under the joint rule of the ‘Christian Monarchs’, Ferdinand of Aragón and Isabella of Castile. The inter-Christian rivalry that had crippled the Christian kingdoms’ war against the Muslims for the last hundred years was, supposedly, over. A shrinking economy within the Emirate of Granada and the erosion of their territory in the first half of the 15th century had fostered increased xenophobia amongst the Muslim population and a consequent lack of tolerance towards the few Christians that remained or visited the Emirate. This provided the Christian Monarchs with a religious...

    Campus Reform ^ | January 1, 2021 | Benjamin Zeisloft
    Over the years, Campus Reform has reported on hundreds of instances of anti-Christian sentiment at American universities. Here are five of the worst instances from this year. 1. Harvard University. Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholet called for a ban on homeschooling, decrying “conservative Christians” in the process. In a Harvard Gazette interview entitled “A warning on homeschooling,” Bartholet attributed rising interest in homeschooling to the “growth in the conservative evangelical movement,” stating that “conservative Christians” use the practice to “escape from the secular education in public schools,” after a failed effort “to have their children exempted from exposure to alternative...

    The Greeks who represent the last vestiges of Christian Byzantium and the Roman Empire are heading towards their final extinction in Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey, with their numbers dwindling to a mere handful under his Islamist government. What is now Turkey only began to be colonised in by the Turkic peoples in earnest from around 1071, after their Seljuk ancestors had arrived from Central Asia and vanquished the Greek-speaking Christian ruler Romanos IV Diogenes’s forces at the Battle of Manzikert. The last vestiges of the Byzantine state where finally snuffed out with the brutal conquest of Constantinople, widely regarded as...

    Christian churches and organizations should join in an alliance to more effectively work to protect African Christians who face severe persecution in many countries, His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) of Volokolamsk said at a conference yesterday. Opening the conference, “On the Situation of Christians in Africa,” the Chairman of the Russian Church’s Department for External Church Relations (DECR), noted that Christians in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Algeria, and other countries currently face especially severe persecution. The Russian Orthodox Church sees the support of these suffering Christians as part of its historical mission, Met. Hilarion said, reports the press service of...

    The cathedral in Speyer, Germany -- AFP via Getty Images A child rape victim has accused nuns at a now-shuttered Catholic children’s home in Germany of “pimping” out orphans to priests, politicians and other wealthy men. The victim, now 63, has remained anonymous despite having fought and won a legal battle for compensation in May over the horrors they endured, beginning at 5 years old in March 1963. The man, who has struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression since then, was awarded a total of 25,000 euros by German courts due to claims he’d been raped more than 1,000...
