    Pope Francis said his conservative critics within the Roman Catholic Church in the United States are trapped in a "suicidal attitude," according to an interview with CBS. During the April 24 interview with "60 Minutes" that will air this Sunday, Pope Francis was asked his thoughts on the conservative backlash against his papacy, with many of his critics being American clergy members. Pope Francis responded by saying a conservative is someone who "clings to something and does not want to see beyond that." "It is a suicidal attitude," the pontiff said, according to a brief transcript excerpt made available by...

    The world is just a few weeks away from the global acceptance of the World Health Organization pandemic treaty, known as WHO. This treaty includes the “One Health” agenda and is designed to “balance” the health of people, animals, and plants, as though all three are of equal value. One Health Adopting the “One Health” approach will affect multiple aspects of everyday life, from agriculture and farming to livestock and food production to environmental issues. The “One Health” agenda is designed to globally declare possible pandemic-type risks, which will naturally lead to forced lockdowns and restrictions placed upon the private...

    Americans stand just weeks away from handing over massive amounts of taxpayer funding, protective equipment intended for U.S. citizens, and an incalculable amount of influence over U.S. policy to the World Health Organization (WHO), critics warn. The global governance body will resume meetings to revise the WHO Pandemic Agreement on Monday. The Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB), established to draw up the text of the agreement in December 2021, will hold its ninth meeting from April 29 to May 10. That provides just over two weeks before the 77th World Health Assembly meets from May 27 to June 1 in Geneva,...
  • Comparing the Fall of ‘Old Testament' Israel with America’s Soon Demise

    IFB ^ | 4/17/24 | Mark Musser
    It has been common place over the years for many to compare the eventual fall of America witth the fall of Rome. All civilizations rise and fall, and there are, of course, many parallels between them when they do fall. Some even use the fall of Athenian democracy as another parallel. Plato complained in the Republic that democracy inherently leads to amateurism, anarchy, mob rule and eventually despotism. However, the fact of the matter is, that while the fall of any empire and country can be studied and used as a historical warning to what may happen in the future,...
  • Why Today’s Global Rise in Anti Semitism and Distain of Israel?

    If one REJECTS this ETERNAL and DIVINE perspective for a subjective earthly one, that one will go insane with all the injustice that dominates our present world, and that one will absolutely loose their mind trying to come to grips with the reality of our day. The question by many Jews today is why is anti-Semitism so rampant and where is the G-d of Israel to intercede on the Jews behalf? My dear friends G-d greatly cares about the Jew. Israel is the apple of His eye, but tragically G-d is not the Apple of Israel's eye (as a whole...

    In light of the Russian invasion into Ukraine and Russia’s massing of troops on the Israeli border in Syria at present; we can see before our very eyes - in this EXPONENTIAL technological age - that Bible prophecy's end time last days stage is being fully set; and Gog's invasion alliance being fully established as they all prepare for their invasion into the land of 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...
  • Baby Blues: How to Face the Church’s Growing Fertility Crisis...If current rates continue, most religious communities in America will shrink by more than half within three generations. But nondenominational Christianity might buck the trend.

    In recent years, the fertility gap by religion has widened to unprecedented levels.... With birth rates at just 1.8 or 1.9 children per woman, versus a conversion-adjusted “replacement rate” of 2.44, religious communities in America will tend to decline by about 25 percent in each generation... Virtually 100 percent of the decline in fertility in the United States from 2012 to 2019 can be explained through a combination of two factors: growing numbers of religious women leaving the faith, along with declining birth rates among the nonreligious....

    Beloved, our dear friends at "Word of Truth Production" have created this amazing MUST VIEW video which causes us to use our God-given common sense as we look at man's inventions versus Almighty God's highly complex creation and design (Gen. 1:1-3, Neh. 9:6; Prov. 3:19, Isa. 45:18, John 1:1-3, Rom. 1:18-32, 1 Cor. 8:6, Rev. 4-5)! The question that we need to ask ourselves is this, "Are we a product of time and chance or have we been designed by our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator with an ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS calling, vocation, and purpose (Matt. 4:19, John 1:12, 2 Cor. 5:17-21)?"

    For over three decades, John Burke has studied thousands of near-death experiences (NDEs) and discovered a striking commonality among them all: Every individual, regardless of their religious background, experiences the God of the Bible. “I interviewed 70 people on every continent, and found that they all encountered the same God; it didn't matter their culture, ethnicity or religious background. God is the God of all nations,” Burke told The Christian Post.Burke, who with his wife, Kathy, founded Gateway Church, a multisite church based in Austin, Texas, recounts some of these stories in his book,Imagine the God of Heaven: Near-Death Experiences,...

    The Stream ^ | John Zmirak
    One thing we know about Pope Francis: He has an unhealthy obsession with Judas. In his private apartments, a crude painting hangs which depicts the risen Jesus ministering to Judas’s body after his suicide. Francis has repeatedly mused that Judas might have been saved — in support of the suggestion that no one is finally damned. That’s a heresy the early Church condemned for turning the drama of our salvation into a farce with a forced happy ending. You might think Francis is simply a little “too merciful.” Read my three-part analysis of the dark, perverse motivations that more likely...

    ABSTRACT: Jesus of Nazareth underwent Jewish and Roman trials, was flogged, and was sentenced to death by crucifixion. The scourging produced deep stripelike lacerations and appreciable blood loss, and it probably set the stage for hypovolemic shock as evidenced by the fact that Jesus was too weakened to carry the crossbar (patibulum) to Golgotha. At the site of crucifixion his wrists were nailed to the patibulum, and after the patibulum was lifted onto the upright post, (stipes) his feet were nailed to the stipes. The major pathophysiologic effect of crucifixion was an interference with normal respirations. Accordingly, death resulted primarily...
  • Is this the face of Jesus? (Shroud of Turin)

    Premier Christianity ^ | March 24, 2024 | Sam Hailes
    The Shroud of Turin is the most studied object in the world – and for good reason. If authentic, this linen cloth would constitute physical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. Not so fast comes the gut reaction from many Christians, concerned that such a theory skirts dangerously close to venerating a spurious relic. Besides, hasn’t the science concluded this is simply a medieval forgery?But the truth is, there is little consensus on the Shroud’s authenticity. After thousands of hours of research, study and tests, opinion is still divided among both scholars and enthusiasts. And so the intriguing possibility remains...

    Have You No Decency, Holy Father?Ideology is not the same thing as religion. Most religions, even though often wrong about many things, seek to better the person practicing it; they have similar moral codes, which typically include kindness to those less fortunate and decency toward others. Ideology, on the other hand, cares little for individual persons and focuses completely on the goals of The Cause. Things like kindness and decency are jettisoned in pursuit of those goals. Think of the difference between a Quaker and a Communist: which would you rather have as a neighbor? I bring this up because...
