    Given the current state of things, I felt compelled to start a prayer thread for President Trump today as the attacks against him right now are particularly vicious. If he can't be brought down legally, then the forces that be seek to break him down mentally, physically, and spiritually -- not to mention his wife and family, and all his millions, nay, billions of supporters around the world. The fact he is still standing at all right now is nothing short of miraculous. Mr. Trump is NO saint nor prophet, but he is a vessel in need of the Savior,...
  • How to Hear God's Voice

    Rhema CC ^ | Tania Harris
    It’s been said that when we talk to God, we’re ‘praying’, but when he talks to us, we’re crazy. Personally, I think it’s far crazier for us to pray without expecting God to speak back. Since the beginning of time, God has been a communicating being. When we choose to follow him, God gives us the Holy Spirit who speaks to us wherever we are. The challenge is learning to discern God’s voice above the others we hear. Although he longs to reveal himself in a personal way, human frailty means we can get it wrong. The good news is...

    Fox's Family Guy has been mocking Christianity since the early years of the show. Last night's episode turned Jesus into a vulgar comedian who mocks His mother's virginity. In the episode, "Faith No More," Brian goes back in time to erase Christianity from existence after an attractive Evangelical Christian woman refuses to have sex with him. After being rejected by a veterinary nurse who is an Evangelical Christian, Brian comes home and rants to Stewie about Christianity. Brian: Christianity sucks. It's stupid, arbitrary nonsense. Stewie: You're horny and she wouldn't have sex with you. Brian: No. And I did everything...
  • Sydney church stabbing: Attack on Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel at Wakeley may be linked to resurfaced video showing the stabbing victim making controversial remarks about Islam

    An Assyrian Orthodox Church bishop who was stabbed during a livestreamed church service in Sydney had spoken critically about Islam in a video recorded four months ago. Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was preaching at Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley in Sydney's west just after 7pm on Monday when a 16-year-old boy walked up to the altar and allegedly stabbed him multiple times. On a separate video of the aftermath of the alleged terror attack, the boy said in Arabic 'If they didn't insult my prophet, I wouldn't have come here. If he didn't involve himself in my religion,...

    Beloved FRiends, my dear husband is having a rectal bleeding event again. I am awaiting his gastroenterologist’s callback as to go ahead and bring him to hospital to be evaluated. It is best that his doctor send word to the ED to expect him, it will keep them from setting him aside in the waiting area instead of taking him straight back into triage / bed. He is at the moment exhaustedly sleeping and I am keeping a close eye on him. Asking that The Lord Jesus Heal my husband of this malady that I think is now peptic in...
  • You Need to Take the Religious Left Seriously This Time

    Politico ^ | 2/25/21 | Zack Stanton
    For generations, American politics has been defined by the outsize influence of Christian conservatives, so much so that the intersection of religion and politics is often treated as the sole province of white evangelicals. And for generations, promises of a rising “religious left” have come and gone without any lasting political imprint. But to look at America’s religious left at this moment is to see something genuinely different. Places of worship are participating in demonstrations for civil rights larger than any protest movement in American history. Democrats like the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Joe Biden—political leaders whose faith isn’t just...

    All Israel ^ | 3/28/24 | staff
    Every year, tens of thousands of Christians visit the Garden Tomb – that is, the empty tom – in Jerusalem to reflect on the life, death, and miraculous resurrection of Jesus. But this year, with Israel engaged in brutal war against Hamas in Gaza for almost six months, more and more Israeli Jews than ever before are wrestling with existential questions. They’re asking about life and death and life after death – and even whether Jesus of Nazareth might, in fact, be the Jewish Messiah. And that’s the focus of this week’s Easter Special Edition of THE ROSENBERG REPORT on...

He spoke to me through His precious Word, And said, “I am nigh;” And at this time He brought me to see: His precious hands. Those hands, His precious hands, Were pierced right through for all our sins. And when I think on such wondrous things; Oh, my Savior’s hands! Those hands, My Savior’s hands, Testify of all His selfless love; And EVERMORE, all shall see: His precious hands. (His...

    WHY THE RESURRECTION IS IMPORTANT "Man," writes Loren Eisley, "is the cosmic Orphan." He is the only creature in the universe who asks, Why? Other animals have instincts to guide them, but man has learned to ask questions. "Who am I?" he asks. "Why am I here? Where am I going?" Ever since the Enlightenment, when modern man threw off the shackles of religion, he has tried to answer these questions without reference to God. But the answers that came back were not exhilarating, but dark and terrible: "You are an accidental by-product of nature, the result of matter plus...

    Christian Post ^ | 03/25/2024 | Gary Habermas
    An absolutely amazing feature in recent critical New Testament thought is the significant alteration that has developed regarding the scholarly attitude concerning [Jesus’ miracles]. Due to the evidential application of historical considerations to the Gospels ... critical scholars virtually across the scholarly spectrum acknowledge that Jesus was a healer and an exorcist. This is not necessarily to answer the questions of what really or exactly happened on those occasions or what was the ultimate cause of the events in the sense of being from God’s hand and so on, but it is granted by scholars today that events at least...

    The Georgia criminal defense attorney who alleged an “improper” relationship between Fani Willis and Nathan Wade called out the Fulton County District Attorney over a speech she made claiming “Jesus” told her to prosecute Trump. Ashleigh Merchant, who filed a bombshell motion alleging Willis’ relationship with Wade, whom she appointed special prosecutor on the case, appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show Tuesday where she told the host that she “still [hasn’t] gotten over the church remarks.” “When someone says that Jesus himself told them to prosecute this case, how do you defend against that?… That’s insane. I’ve never dealt with that…...

    You won’t find this in our English translations, but it’s literally what the Hebrew says in a psalm ascribed to David: “In place of my love they hatefully accuse me, but I am prayer” (Psalm 109:4, my translation). What a profound statement, and what a lesson for us. Other English versions, seeking to express the Hebrew idiom in workable English, translate with: For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer (KJV). In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer (ESV). In return for my friendship they accuse me, but...

    On the morning of Feb. 21, 2018, my grandfather slipped silently and sweetly into the presence of Jesus. He was called home in a manner that was fitting for a servant of Christ who had uncompromisingly served his Lord for the better part of a century. He closed his eyes in the earthly realm, only to open them once again in Heaven. I believe it was something that my grandfather anticipated with great joy and peace. Why? Because he knew—with no doubt in his mind—that it wasn’t the end. Death for him was just a door that must be walked...

    The Talmud tells us that the solar eclipse is a sign or omen for the Gentiles, who base time on the solar calendar, and a lunar eclipse is a sign or omen for the Jews, who calculate the months (and Feast days) according to the cycles of the Moon. 1 Corinthians 1:22 says, “For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom.” Although this is true, I think we would all like a sign from God as man’s wisdom doesn’t compare to God’s wisdom, for God knows the end from the beginning. According to Astro Pixels (NASA) calculations, the...
