    A new bill introduced by Rep. Lauren Boebert would eliminate Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board, dubbed a ‘Ministry of Truth’ by critics, before it even got off the ground. The Department of Homeland Security recently announced that the new unit will focus primarily on “misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia.” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared on CNN Sunday to assert that the board will not have “operational authority” and will instead “disseminate those best practices to the operators that have been executing and addressing this threat for years.” Many saw a clear correlation between Elon...

    Sarah Davis, the daughter of late apologist Ravi Zacharias and former CEO of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM), has left the organization her father founded to launch a new apologetics ministry.The news elicited disappointment from one abuse survivor and two former RZIM employees, who believe Davis should be “disqualified” from leading a ministry.According to a report from investigative journalist Julie Roys, Davis filed articles of incorporation earlier this month with the state of Georgia for a nonprofit corporation titled Encounter, Inc. The organization has the stated mission of “carrying the Gospel invitation to individuals,” “engaging their questions” and “training and...

    Josh McDowell speaks at Talbot Chapel at Biola University in CaliforniaProminent Christian author and apologist Josh McDowell announced that he will step away from his ministry work and speaking events for the time being after making controversial remarks about minorities and education.In a statement posted Wednesday afternoon to his Twitter account, the 82-year-old said that the backlash from his recent comments at the American Association of Christian Counselors conference on Saturday led him to conclude that he had to step away from his ministry efforts for a time."It has become clear to me, along with Cru leadership, that I need...

    California megachurch Pastor John MacArthur’s ministry denied he makes more than $500,000 annually from his Grace to You media ministry and defended the stewardship of his collective ministries' finances on Tuesday after a recent report suggested his private lifestyle belies the modesty he preaches at the pulpit.“The questions and quibbling innuendo that have been published on the Internet regarding John MacArthur’s income and stewardship are rooted in misinformation. For example, a report has been floating around online for some time that John makes more than half a million dollars annually from GTY. Totally false,” Phil Johnson, GTY executive director and...
  • Can Same-Sex-Attracted Men Be Pastors?

    Christian Research Institute ^ | 05/18/2020 | Michael F. Ross
    Can a man who experiences same-sex attraction be ordained as a pastor in the gospel ministry? Many believe that homosexuality is such a heinous sin that it permanently disqualifies a man from any eligibility for ordained ministry. Others believe that he rightly may be ordained, and some conjecture that his homosexual struggles may actually make him more effective as a minister in a culture awash with complex gender issues. But what does the Bible say about this issue? That is the perspective we all need.What Does Scripture Teach? Romans 1:18–32 indeed affirms that homosexuality and lesbianism are unnatural acts of...

    Question: Should Christian leaders be restored to ministry after moral failures? Should Christian leaders be restored to a position of Christian ministry and trust once they have betrayed that trust? I have addressed aspects of that question in previous Christian Post columns (Feb. 7 and Feb. 14, 2020). However, this is a somewhat different question that has entered the realm of public debate in a heightened way because of the tragic situation unfolding at Cedarville University. In the interest of full disclosure, I am personally acquainted with Thomas White, Cedarville’s president, who has been placed on “administrative leave” by his...

    In the year AD 430, Roman north Africa was overrun by a warlike barbarian horde known to history as the Vandals. Under the leadership of their brutal king, Gaiseric, the Vandals were bent on plunder, ruin and conquest to such an extent that the name of their nation lives on as a common noun in the English language with negative connotations reverberating across 15 centuries. With Roman military resistance collapsing on every front before the overwhelming attack, Saint Augustine found himself trapped in his home city of Hippo Regius, deathly ill and under siege by a Vandalic host.

    HUD Secretary declares, 'In God We Trust' Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson plans to call on all churches, synagogues, and mosques in America to help fight homelessness in the weeks and months to come. “If every church would adopt one homeless person or one homeless family, with the goal of making them self-sufficient in a year, can you imagine what the impact would be?” Carson asked in an interview with Just the News for the Pod's Honest Truth podcast. HUD officials say this is not a new agency policy but rather a personal call by a man...

    The largest homeless ministry in the United States and a prominent Roman Catholic charity, Covenant House, is now on the LGBT bandwagon. Covenant House was founded Bruce Ritter, a Franciscan priest, in 1972. Ritter was later embroiled in an abuse-scandal in which he was accused of molesting the young men coming in for shelter off the street. It was first formed in Manhattan and Staten Island but now operates in 21 cities throughout the United States, Central America, and Canada. The charity is still a dues-paying member of Catholic Charities and Catholic Charities of New York. Covenant House says that...

    This week evangelical pastor John MacArthur haughtily told Beth Moore to, “Go home,” when questioned regarding his thoughts about her. Then, as if this heartless comment wasn’t cringe-worthy enough, he compared Beth Moore’s sacred ministry call to that of a salesperson peddling jewelry on television. Here’s the thing: MacArthur’s stinging discourse regarding Beth Moore, wasn’t really about Beth Moore. He was disparaging every woman who has ever answered the call to ministry. In one clean swoop, he maligned Huldah, Deborah, Miriam, Priscilla, Phoebe, and Junia … and you. John MacArthur owes you an apology. But a far weighty matter is...

    As we have been saying for years now, Big Tech’s brazen anti-Christian and anti-Conservative thought policing must stop. Earlier this week, YouTube rightfully came under fire when the proprietors of a faith-based ministry for military veterans were barred from running an ad for their foundation because it contained just one unacceptable keyword: “Christian.” According to Chad Robichaux, a U.S. Marine veteran and founder of the Mighty Oaks Foundation, his marketing team recently attempted to run the ad for his “Mighty Oaks Show,” which features interviews with vets and Christian content geared toward their unique strengths and struggles after service. But,...

    A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn't look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said "hate speech" should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should. In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether "hate speech" is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. On campus today, it can be defined as "unsafe" to hear an opinion you don't like. Unwelcome speech is compared to a physical...

The Freedom March, founded by Jeffrey McCall, is diverse group of Christians who have left the active practice of homosexuality and transgenderism behind and are testifying to the power of the Holy Spirit who set them free from sexual sin and wounds of all kinds. “I was transformed through the grace of Jesus and found that others have been as well.

    CHICAGO — Gathering under the theme "Be transformed by the renewing of your minds," the Conference of Bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) met here Feb. 28 – March 4. The conference is an advisory body of the ELCA that includes 65 synod bishops, the presiding bishop and the secretary. "Across differences, in the midst of significant challenges, our time together really was an experience of renewal and transformation in the power of the Spirit," said the Rev. William O. Gafkjen, bishop of the ELCA Indiana-Kentucky Synod and chair of the conference. For the first time, the...

    Do not turn a blind eye. Pedophilia goes far beyond the walls of the church, and spreads much like the plague, infesting local communities and infiltrating daycares, schools, and foster care, while many remain protected by local community leaders and officials. Child sex trafficking and church pedophiles are rampant, and the lists being disseminated by churches across the country, pointing to pedophile priests and clergy, most of which have long been deceased, is a swift way to clean their hands of it, with false transparency. What they don’t want people to know, is just how far this truly reaches, and...

    Teleios Research analyzed the financial and work efficiency of secular versus Christian private related relief organizations operating in the United States. The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability's online database was used for the Christian-based organizations and Charity Navigator for the secular-based organizations. The Christian list was analyzed first and matched to similar organizations on the secular list that were active in at least three states. Types of organizations included in this evaluation were family and child, medical, education, urban development, poverty alleviation, and legal services. Types of organizations from the secular-based list unable to be matched to a Christian agency...
