    The world seems to have gone nuts. People are seeing unidentified flying objects. The government confirms it. Sen. Marco Rubio claims UFOs are flying over our military installations. Pilots have videos of mysterious objects flying rapidly and making 90 degree turns -- something physically impossible for humans at the speed those objects are flying. They seem to defy the known laws of physics. Over the past summer, Americans watched other Americans burn down cities while reporters stood in front of the burning rubble claiming the protests were peaceful, but your eyes might be racist. In January, supporters of President Donald...

    Homosexualist Fr. James Martin features in 'Wonderfully Made'NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - An award-winning Jewish filmmaker is to release a documentary film aimed at offering LGBTQ+ Catholics with homosexual iconography of Jesus. Director Yuval David, a Jew "married" to his Catholic "husband," says he noticed the absence of LGBTQ+ portrayals of Jesus in Catholicism — a faith where icons play a significant part. The lack of visual representation of a "gay Jesus" led David to create a feature-length movie exploring the challenges and aspirations of LGBTQ+ Catholics. The film "Wonderfully Made" will be released in early 2021 and features interviews with...

    Source: Myra AdamsToday we study a fascinating and significant New Testament passage. It describes an event known as the “Transfiguration” – when the physical appearance of Jesus was changed, and his Divinity was revealed with radiant glory. There were three witnesses – the Disciples Peter, John, and James. The Transfiguration is recorded in three of the four Gospels – (Matthew 17:1–12), (Mark 9:2-8), (Luke 9:28-36) and alluded to in the fourth – (John 1-14): We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.Additionally, Peter, having observed this supernatural occurrence,...
  • Far-Left Laodicean Magazine 'Christianity Today' Demands That America's Christian Churches Pay Reparations to Blacks For Slavery

    Champions of the far-Left Laodicean Church, a magazine called Christianity Today and started by Billy Graham, has decided to throw their hat into the ring surrounding the discussion on racial tensions and domestic terror organization, Black Lives Matter. Their solution? America’s Christian churches need to pay reparations, or financial compensation, to descendants of black slaves from the 18th and 19th centuries. When all else fails, pay people off. “Reparations is a scheme to extract money from people who were never slave owners, and give it to people who were never slaves” – Larry Elder The Jews who lived through the...

    At their annual conference last February, conservative Methodists won the vote to keep the 3rd largest Christian denomination in America traditional on the subjects of marriage and the clergy.  They decided that, like the Catholic Church and many other denominations, the United Methodist Church would continue with a one-man, one-woman approach to matrimony, and not have openly LGBTQ clergy. As the largest Christian denomination in the United States other than the Catholic Church and the Southern Baptists, both of which prohibit same-sex marriage, the United Methodist Church has roots going back to the fiery Anglican preacher John Wesley.  The American...

    Christian Post ^ | 01/03/2020 | John Stonestreet
    An oft-repeated but, in my view, ultimately misguided self-critique by Christians, is that we are better known for what we are against than what we are for. I fully agree with the spirit of the comment. As Chuck Colson liked to say, Christians should not just resist the bad stuff but always propose a better way. Today, however, that statement is too often used as a way of saying Christians should be more positive, as if Christians should be known for what we are for, and not known for what we are against. But Christians just can’t choose between those...

    Mark Galli, the editor-in-chief of Christianity Today who infuriated nearly 200 evangelical leaders by writing a December editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office and describing the president as being “profoundly immoral,” is stepping down at the end of this week. Galli confirmed his departure in a Twitter message on New Year’s Eve. “Well, my retirement is a couple of days away,” Galli wrote. “Will be posting here more often now that I have more time on my hands. Well, given last week, maybe not.”

    Writing as an evangelical Christian who has taught ethics as a professor at the college and graduate school level for 42 years, and as the author of a major textbook on Christian ethics and another widely-used book on the relationship between politics and the Bible, I wish to respectfully differ with Mark Galli’s editorial, “Trump Should Be Removed from Office” (Christianity Today, December 19, 2019). This is in keeping with Galli’s statement that the approach of CT is to “allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square.”  Galli’s reasons why Trump should be...

    The Aquila Report ^ | December 23, 2019 | William B. Evans
    It occurred to me yesterday in the context of a somewhat heated exchange with someone who is all gaga over CT-editor Mark Galli’s call for Trump’s removal from office, that all this progressive evangelical blather about Trump as a threat to “the gospel” is really coded language about other evangelicals. His fervent opposition to Trump, he said, is all about “the gospel.” When I pressed the guy about how Trump undermines “the gospel,” the conversation quickly turned to his perception that prominent Trump apologists like Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr. are discrediting evangelical Christianity and thus making it harder...

    We often hear that evangelical support for President Trump is hurting our witness here in America. Is it hurting our witness overseas as well? In a follow-up to Christianity Today’s editorial by Mark Galli calling for the removal of President Trump, CT president Timothy Dalrymple noted, “We are also a global ministry” and “partly on behalf of that global body, we can no longer stay silent.” Is it true, then, that American evangelical support for Trump is hurting our international witness? Dalrymple wrote...

    “I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump," Galli said, according to the piece. "I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals … and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work ...They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media. A lot of them voted for Donald Trump.”

    hould Christians continue to support Donald Trump as President, even during the Democrats’ impeachment show and the 2020 presidential election? An editorial in Christianity Today called for the U.S. Senate to remove Trump on impeachment, using as its theology talking points from the Democrat Party. Did God choose Donald Trump — an unlikely prospect — to help lead the United States of America back in a Godly direction? Such discussions reveal more about people’s ideas and misunderstandings about Christianity. This topic could be endless because it involves the Creator and Superintendent of the entire universe. But let’s start somewhere. Donald...

    In a letter to Timothy Dalrymple, the president of Christianity Today, nearly 200 evangelical faith leaders condemned both its editorial calling for the removal of President Donald Trump from office and its editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, for dismissing evangelicals who oppose his views on the matter as being “far right.”On Sunday, the faith leaders said in the letter, which can be read in full below, that the editorial “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations."The signatories also decried Galli who they say “offensively dismissed” their point of view...

    Christianity Today officially jumped the shark when they called for the impeachment of President Trump.  Why were they not advocating for the same thing during the Obama years? When I voted for Donald Trump, my vote was not for a Sunday School Teacher but rather for the person who would keep my wife, family, and nation safe.  We had a Sunday School teacher named Jimmy Carter as President and yet were much better off as a nation under Ronald Reagan, a divorced man (albeit an evangelical Christian himself).  Would I like a Sunday School teacher?  Absolutely but as president, I...

    The editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, wrote an editorial calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. In my view, this editorial only serves to confirm one of the sadder realizations of my life: that religious conviction guarantees neither moral clarity nor common sense. The gist of the editorial -- and of most religious and conservative opposition to President Trump -- is that any good the president has done is dwarfed by his character defects. This is an amoral view that says more about Galli than it does about the president. He and the people who share his opinion...

    The late Rev. Billy Graham would have been "disappointed" that his name was invoked in Christianity Today's recent call for President Trump's removal from office, Graham's son told Fox News on Monday night in an exclusive interview. "My father would be very disappointed and would not agree with it at all," the Rev. Franklin Graham said Monday on "The Ingraham Angle." "My father believed in Donald Trump, supported Donald Trump and he actually voted for Donald Trump, and if he were here today he would tell you that himself."

    You just knew that Morning Joe would seek to exploit for maximum political gain the Christianity Today editorial by outgoing editor-in-chief Mark Galli that was highly critical of President Trump. And sure enough . . . First up today was Never-Trumper Rick Tyler, who praised the editorial for having "overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple courts." In a particularly audacious attack, Tyler claimed that Trump-supporting evangelicals are telling others that "Christianity is sort of a farce. That it's not real. That it's not true." Next up was Al Sharpton, who approvingly cast the editorial, because it's...

    Millions of American Christians learned that they are, in fact, disloyal to God and to the Ten Commandments because of President Donald Trump, thanks to Thursday’s blockbuster op-ed from Christianity Today and its editor-in-chief Mark Galli. Reading this piece, I was struck not only by the acceptance of dishonest narratives from corporate media but its contempt for believers who prefer Trump to govern them over the woke crowd — those evangelists whose dogmas on gender, abortion, and socialism provide much condemnation and no hope for atonement. And yet, those issues are dwarfed substantially by the stunning hypocrisy of Galli’s judgment...

    I was very unhappy with our primary choices in the 2016 elections. The GOP field was way too large which allowed a reality star candidate, without the majority of GOP voters’ support, to win. The Democrat side, emerging from a convention that booed God and Israel, couldn’t promote the violence of abortion or the pseudoscience of LGBT activism enough.  Yet in the match-up between a documented fabricator (Hillary Clinton, a Planned Parenthood endorsed candidate) and an egomaniac (President Donald Trump), which one should Christians have voted for? The evangelical Left twisted themselves into a theological knot trying to advocate for...
