  • What about the pygmies? What is the ultimate destination of those who supposedly never hear the gospel?

    Christian Post ^ | 01/25/2021 | Robin Schumacher
    A few years back one of my friends was trying to share the gospel with a guy who, after a while, started almost screaming at him, “What about the pygmies?? What about the pygmies??” My friend let the guy calm down for a second and then he asked him a simple question:“Are you a pygmy?” His point was, on the day of judgment it’s not going to be about those who may have never heard the gospel in general, but about you in particular. As C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity, “If you are worried about the people on...

    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 1/24/21 | Chuck Ness
    Up until the 19th century, cities often stationed watchmen on high walls or in watchtowers to keep guard. Their job was to keep an eye out for the enemy, by watching out over the horizon from their vantage point. They were the ones who warned the people of any apparent dangers. If they saw any sign of an attack, they would alert the people with a trumpet blast, or ringing a bell. However, if they failed to properly warn the people, by falling asleep or just being unaware, then the city could be attacked without the citizens being prepared to...

    Beloved fellow FReepers, first of all I would like to wish all a very Merry Christmas. I pray that all are having a joyous time of fellowship, thanksgiving, and celebration as we spend time with family and friends, and also to lift up the Might Name of Jesus Christ, Who came incarnate as a baby and grew up among mankind. And, in doing so, without sin, experienced all that mankind dealt with in this fallen world so that He could present Himself as that Perfect, spotless Ultimate Sacrifice to end the grip of sin and to again allow those who...

    U.S.—A concerning new study has revealed that kids raised in church youth groups are leaving the Christian faith at alarming rates, regardless of how much free Mountain Dew and pizza the church ministry feeds them in high school. "I don't know what else to do," said local youth pastor Kaylen Zedwink, known affectionately as "Z-man" by his youth group. "I've consumed nothing but pizza and Mountain Dew for the last 12 years. My cholesterol is approaching lethal levels now. My body is covered in welts from being constantly shot with paintballs. I spend $1200 per month on cool clothes. I...

You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry.

    Christian Post ^ | 10/19/2020 | John Stonestreet
    According to recent survey, nearly a third of self-described evangelicals do not believe that Jesus Christ is truly God. Arianism, as it turns out, is a heresy that plagues multiple generations of the Church, not just the one of the fourth century.Well, over and over the Church has, in various times and ways, ruled that some beliefs are not acceptable alternatives within Christianity. Adherents are, in fact, outsiders to the faith. For example, nearly 100 years ago, in a book entitled Christianity and Liberalism, Presbyterian scholar J. Gresham Machen argued, in an extensive scholarly treatment, that liberal Christianity was not...

  • Whatis the Noahide Movement?

    “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”(Galatians 2:21)There is a rapidly growing movement, which springs out of Orthodox Judaism, Apostate Messianic Christianity, and other streams of neo Judaistic sects within and on the fringes of Christianity, which is called the Noahide movement. It is not new, of course, in fact it predates the coming of Jesus our Lord, into this world. The problem it addresses is for those who are not Jewish, and who do not seek to fully convert to Judaism, but yet who are...
  • Blatant, Flat Out Apostasy...The Noahide Movement

    “In the Last days, many shall depart from the faith giving heed to seeding Spirits and Doctrines of Devils…” (I Timothy 4:1)If you want to see shocking apostasy on display, look no further than what is called the Noahide movement. Noachides, are gentiles who do not want to convert to Judaism, but are intrigued by it, attracted to it, and open to it’s vigorous criticism of Christianity. Since all living men are descended from Noah and one of his Sons, Rabbis teach that Righteousness for Gentiles comes by subscription to one of the seven General laws for all men. It...

    The Communists Know It: Christ Stoned the Adulteress \ A Chinese textbook on professional ethics and law for vocational schools claims that Christ stoned the adulteress in John 8 to death because he wanted to respect the law, reports UcaNews.com (September 22).However, in the original John 8, Christ says, “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone” adding "go and sin no more."According to the Chinese Communist Gospel Jesus says, “I too am a sinner but if the law could only be executed by men without blemish, the law would be dead.”Legalism, fanaticism, and cruelty are indeed...

    In today’s 24-hour news cycle, political banter is virtually unavoidable and a lot of what we hear is distasteful. Consider a few recent examples: o Robert De Niro spewing crude language toward POTUS at the Tony Awards o A race-baiting often-politico clergyman claiming he’s only “anti-termite” not anti-Semitic o Popular TV comedians mocking the looks of a disfigured Navy veteran seeking a Congressional office o The entire SCOTUS nomination process where the Senate’s “advice and consent” role has become “search and destroy” the character of the “wrong party’s” nominee Political speech seems increasingly ugly, distasteful, uncivil, vulgar, immature, and counterproductive...

    How long shall we as a church continue to live this way? We have been reluctant and stayed in our comfort zones for so long. We have pursued our selfish desires without concern for the last instructions that Jesus gave to His disciples. We have complained so much that the government wants to Islamize Nigeria. We have prayed severally for God to kill Boko Haram members and Fulani Herdsmen, but we have failed to realize that our inaction is responsible for the tragedy in Nigeria. It is high time we woke up and become responsible Christians and pursue the agenda...

    They’re Ensuring It Christians say, with the apostle Paul, that for us to live is Christ, and to die is gain — yet at the very thought of death, so many of our churches slammed our doors shut and are keeping them closed. What does that say about our faith? The coronavirus pandemic has made little liars out of our Sunday school selves. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,” we sang. “Hide it under a bushel? No! I’m gonna let it shine. Don’t let Satan blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine,...
