    Egypt’s Mount Sinai – just a hop, skip and a jump from Israel – is the site most commonly known as the place where God appeared to Moses to give him the Ten Commandments – the primary covenant in Judaism, as well as the foundation for most other religions and many modern-day laws. Now, this mountain will be a venue for many nations to gather, to receive their newest creed emanating from the world’s highest and most exalted religion of “Climate Change.” Yes – climate change has become the latest addition to world religions, leaving others in the dust as...

    Between November 6th and 18th, 2022, the UN climate conference COP 27 will take place on the Sinai Peninsula, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Religious communities and religious leaders have a key role to play in addressing climate change and climate justice, which requires deep transformation within society. The knowledge of what changes are critically needed to diminish long-term harm to the planet is readily available. However, bringing about change in action demands deeper changes in attitude, a change of heart. This has been the domain of religions for millennia. Religions are sources of inspiration for the transformation of heart...

    We get it. It's hard to read the divinely inspired word of the creator of the universe. He's so judgy! But, since your salvation might depend on it, you better get some great excuses ready to share on Judgment Day.Here are some of the best excuses for not reading your Bible:1. You just went to church last month and don't want to overdo it: You don't want to be an extremist!2. It's not as encouraging as Your Best Life Now: Joel Osteen's prose is to die for.3. If you take your eye off the Hot Pocket you're microwaving for one...
  • The Power of Praise.

    07/03/2022 8:33:59 AM PDT · by Mrs. Warrior · 1 replies
    The Power of Praise. Paul and Silas were beaten for speaking the good news of Jesus Christ. Jesus carried, on the cross, all of mankind's sickness and sin; so when sent to prison, Paul and Silas started to praise God. Jesus took a beating and with a love greater than known or human or expression of love, took the hate and covered it with His blood, satisfying the Lord God Almighty. In the prison, when God heard His children praising Him in spite of horrible circumstances, He sent an earthquake and broke open the chains that bound the two men....
  • What Separates the Men from the Boys.

    What Separates the Men from the Boys. Jesus, who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross despising the shame and is now set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Jesus told us He loved us; He broke open his heart to heal the brokenhearted and He took the sickness of sin so we can be healthy and whole. He went down into death so we can die only as all men from the womb to the tomb. We will be raised to eternal life when our names are recorded in the book...

  • Abortion advocates of faith insist 'God is on their side,' claim the view that abortion is murder is just the product of a 'white evangelical worldview'

    ... In fact, some clinic workers and religious abortion advocates in the southeasternU.S. told that it's their faith, not a lack , that fuels their support for a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy. One example is Ramona, an employee at West Alabama Women’s Center, who claimed her "trust in God" is what led her to the clinic, where she tends to patients who have undergone abortion procedures. She and her fellow coworkers, "most of them black, deeply faithful Christian women," claimed they have no trouble reconciling their work with their religious beliefs. "God is on our side, they tell...

    One would think that asking such a question is beyond observed, yet if you truly look at all the facts, then one must consider the idea that maybe, just maybe there is no such thing as an original author. After all, unless you can verify that you sat down next to someone writing or typing an artless from start to finish, how can you honestly testify that the one claiming to write something, indeed did? Take this post as an example, I am in my office sitting in front of my computer. My wife is on the other side of...

  • The Nurture and Admonition of the Lord.

    05/01/2022 10:10:36 AM PDT · by Mrs. Warrior
    The Nurture and Admonition of the Lord. In the Garden of Gethsemane, when the High Priest came to take Jesus away, Peter took out his sword and cut off the high priest servant. Jesus could have scolded him, “what is it with you, Peter?” “It is in one ear, and off with another!” Instead, Jesus held up the ear and said, “listen up, I could have called down a legion of angels to protect me!” Jesus knew that Peter would deny him, “Not so, Lord”, Peter thought that in his own love he could be faithful. At the cross, the...

  • The Ukraine in Last Day Biblical Prophecy - Gog of Magog's Future Destruction at The Hands of Almighty God's Two Witnesses!

    IFB ^ | 2/12/22
    In light of the immanent Russia invasion into the Ukraine we can see before our very eyes - in this EXPONENTIAL technological age - Bible prophecy's end time stage being fully set and Gog's invasion alliance and land being established as they prepare for their invasion into Israel (Ezek. 38-39)! The Ukraine is on the very eastern border of Magog as historians and history maps tell us! Is it not sobering and very curious that Israel, even when they are totally out of the will of Almighty God are still the scourge of the nations (Deut. 28-32, Lev. 26)? This...

    ...According to Paul Begley, a Christian evangelist and online personality from Indiana, US, the Mayan calendar will have another shot at getting it right on December 21, 2020. Pastor Begley said: "Of course, the Mayan elders said this could have been the end of the world today. They might have made a mistake. "Well, they obviously made a mistake on December 21, 2012, so they said maybe today would be the end of the world. "And they made a prediction if this wasn't the end of the world today, certainly my birthday will come again. "December 21, 2020, during the...

    Over 1.2 billion people around the world follow the Catholic faith, the most widespread branch of Christianity. The nerve centre of Catholicism is the Vatican, a city-state carved out of Rome, and the ruler of the Church and the religion is the pope. Pope Francis is the 266th and current pope. For centuries, popes and their activities were cloaked in majesty and mystery. Since the Second Vatican Council in the early 1960s, the Catholic Church has gradually become more open to the wider world. Read on to learn more about the Church and the popes with this slideshow.

    SANTA FE — After Judgment Day failed to arrive as expected this weekend, members of a northeastern New Mexico cult are left to ponder one question: What now? Members of the Lord Our Righteousness Church near Des Moines believed they would escape their earthly bondage and ascend to heaven Friday night. Their once-active Web site came down, and a church representative sent the Journal an e-mail saying he didn’t anticipate having anymore contact with the media. But as a small crowd of people and a TV news crew looked on from the gate to the wind-swept compound, midnight came. And...

    The Vatican has corrected a problem on its website that meant it displayed at least two different editions of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in English. When using an online search engine, internet users could land on two different editions of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in English, one of which was an earlier edition. Matteo Bruni, director of the Holy See Press Office, told CNA last week that “it is one of those cases where the system updates are incompletely coordinated, so one page had the older version and the other the more recent one.” Bruni explained...
