On Jan. 9, the Europe External Programme with Africa reported that the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum, about 80 miles west of Adigrat, had been attacked, and that hundreds of people who hid inside were brought out to the front square and shot to death. According to Church Times UK, the attack was carried out by Ethiopian government troops and Amhara militia from central Ethiopia. At least 1,000 people were estimated...

    A Belfast church is closing its doors through Wednesday amid fears that “liberal” churches could be targets before Joe Biden’s inauguration. That message from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast comes at a time of heightened tension in the United States as Donald Trump is set to leave the presidency this week. “There is a collective anxiety in our country following the events at the capital on January 6th and I know our giant UU hearts feel every bit of it. Let’s be sure we take the time we need to remain connected to one another and to take care...

    MANILA, Philippines – The National Bureau of Investigation has arrested in Pasay City two suspected members of the Abu Sayyaf Group wanted for the 2002 kidnapping and killing of members of Jehova’s Witness. NBI Officer-in-Charge Director Eric Distor identified the suspects as Jamar Ibi and Raden Jamil. The two were arrested by members of the NBI’s Counter-Terrorism Division (NBI-CTD) by virtue of arrest warrants issued by the Pasig City Regional Trial Court Branch 266. NBI-CTD Officer-In-Charge Darcy Binaya said the two were among those charged with six counts of non-bailable charges of kidnapping and serious illegal detention with ransom before...

    The Seventh-day Adventist Church is now in “survival” mode financially as it estimates a $26 million decline in tithe from their members“According to reports received from division treasurers, the decrease in tithe income could be estimated as low as 5% and as high as 25%, and the decrease in mission offerings as low as 10 percent and as high as 40 percent,” world church treasurer Juan Prestol-Puesán said during his Oct. 8 financial update to the members of the General Conference Executive Committee, according to the Adventist Review. The Adventist Church headquarters estimates the impact of the decline will amount...

    Benjamin C. Maxson, then the stewardship director for the SDA world church, reported that since the 1970s, to October 2003, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has seen its tithe, or members donating 10 percent of their earnings to the church, drop 75 percent, per capita, adjusted for inflation. “Adventist Christians may not be alone in this seeming trend,” reported Barna Research Group, Ltd., an independent Christian research firm in southern California. “The number of American households who give at least 10 percent of their income to their church has dropped by 62 percent in the past year—from 8 percent in 2001...

    Digital Journal ^ | 8/20/2020 | Covenant Press
    The recently published LSV Bible from Covenant Press has charted a fundamentally different course than the 20th and 21st century Critical Text translations. The new Literal Standard Version is based on the Textus Receptus, in line with the earlier Geneva Bible and King James. It’s a major revision of the literal translation by Robert Young, known popularly as Young’s Literal Translation, with a relationship to Young’s that is similar to that between the English Standard Version and the Revised Standard Version or the NKJV and MEV to the King James. Readers will experience a translation that is even further along...

We are inundated with lies, propaganda, intimidation tactics, voter fraud, manufactured riots, demonization of police and all that is good.

    When President Donald Trump arrived in Jerusalem for Israel’s 50th anniversary, Friends of Zion had billboards erected around the city declaring, “Trump, Make Israel Great” and “Trump is a Friend of Zion.” Little did anyone realize how much this president would do for Israel. Not only did he recognize Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, but he also shut down the PLO office in Washington, stopped the funding of the PA through the Taylor Force Act, and closed the consul in Jerusalem. He has now removed the anti-Israel declaration calling Judea and Samaria Bible lands “settlements,” with the announcement from the...

    ReformationCharlotte ^ | 4/15/2020 | Jeff Maples
    Andy Stanley, son of famous pastor Charles Stanley, is a serial blasphemer and idolater who twists God’s Word — whenever he even discusses it — and uses it to create a false church built around a false gospel and a false Jesus. Andy Stanly has made a number of dubious claims about the Christian faith and in particular, the Scriptures. Famously stating that Christianity needs to “unhitch” from the Old Testament, he told his audience that the Ten Commandments don’t apply to Christians. He’s flopped on homosexuality — telling the mother of an openly-gay and practicing girl that her daughter...
  • [Russian Orthodox Spokesman] V. Legoyda: Pascha Was Celebrated During Plagues and Other Disasters, We’ll Celebrate It This Year As Well

    In the history of Christianity, there have been times when Pascha was celebrated during various social disasters, so the spread of the coronavirus infection will not interfere with its celebration this year, said Vladimir Legoyda, Head of the Synodal Department for Church’s Relations with Society and Mass Media. “When fellow journalists ask me: “What will happen with Pascha?”, I always answer: “Pascha will take place!” Pascha was celebrated during plagues, wars and other disasters, we will celebrate it this year as well,” said Vladimir Legoyda in an interview with RIA Novosti. Speaking about the fact that Christ’s Pascha “symbolizes victory...

    It’s now clear that COVID-19 is a deadly serious global pandemic, and all necessary precautions should be taken. Still, C. S. Lewis’s words—written 72 years ago—ring with some relevance for us. Just replace “atomic bomb” with “coronavirus.” In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and...
  • How a Good Lent Can Help Fix a Bad Economy

    02/29/2020 3:59:03 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 9 replies
    To those who see no link between Lent and our failing economy, it might be the case to look again. Economics is about people. It cannot be reduced to numbers, formulae and analyses. “The subject matter of economics,” observes economic historian Odd Langholm, “is properly the habits, customs, and ways of thinking of producers, consumers, buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, and all who engage in economic transactions.” That means our moral habits can have a definite effect on determining if our economy grows — or fails. In my new book, Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian...

    Christendom Is the Solution for the Emptiness of our Nihilistic Society Grave moral problems are tearing the country apart. For many, this is apparent in the form of broken homes, procured abortion, shattered communities and lost Faith. Many people get it right when pointing out the problems. However, they get it wrong when looking for solutions. Some get it wrong because they look for solutions that address symptoms, not causes. Others search for a way out that involves the least possible effort. In these politically correct times, people are told not to offend anyone by their proposals. Thus, they automatically...
