    Hindus linked to ruling BJP rally against planned statue that will rival Rio de Janeiro's Christ The Redeemer for size. Hundreds of hardline Hindus affiliated to India's ruling party have rallied to protest against planned Jesus statue that will rival Rio de Janeiro's Christ The Redeemer for size. The protests in the southern state of Karnataka's Ramanagara district on Monday were led by far-right Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), with its members clutching saffron flags as around 1,000 police stood by. ..."We want to stop [the statue], since it goes against the spirit of communal harmony and encourages religious conversions which...

    The Holy Bible (KJV) | 01/06/2020: 9:29 AM
    Acts 17:1-34 (KJV): "Now when they had passed through Am-phip'o-lis and Ap-ol'-lo'ni-a, they came to Thes-sa-lo'-ni-a, where was a synagogue of the Jews. 2) And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures, 3) Opening and [explaining] that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead, and that this Jesus; whom I preach unto you, is Christ." [from the Greek word "Christos", meaning "anointed". The translation is from the Hebrew word "Mashiach" or "Messiah". Both "Christ" and "Messiah" mean "the Anointed One of God". Oftentimes...

    Two people have been killed, and on critically injured after a shooting took place at the West Freeway Church of Christ located in Texas.

A third victim was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

    The president has lit the National Christmas tree on the mall virtually every year since 1923. But what makes this year so special is that the president didn’t shy away from the true meaning of the season. In his remarks, Trump reminded the nation about a piece of the tradition that we often overlook. After President Calvin Coolidge lit the first National Christmas Tree, a cross was displayed in bright lights on the Washington Monument — “a powerful reminder,” the president said, “of the meaning of the season.” Mentioning a cross is bold enough on its own, but the president...

    Unto the Chief Musician Music ^ | 12/5/19 | Unto the Chief Musician Music
    This song is the personal testimony of Anna the prophetess, the daughter of Penhanuel, of the tribe of Aser, of the people of Israel (Luke 2:36-38)! It is in the time of great Roman oppression and Anna has experienced and observed the despair of her people and the mighty oppressive power of Rome and her armies for many years. Notice in the lyrics of this song that Almighty God; her Lord and Savior; is ALWAYS observing her and taking care of her! She is ALWAYS in His ETERNAL presence and watchful eye. He always is hearing her prayers and sees...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 11-25-19 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    Posted on November 25, 2019 by Msgr. Charles Pope Why Was Christ Crucified Between Two Thieves? It is good and necessary to ponder more of the Gospel of yesterday’s Solemnity of Christ the King. It remains a profound teaching that Christ was crucified between two thieves. Why?St. Thomas Aquinas proposes three answers to the question. Let’s consider them, with particular emphasis on the third.I. To Identify with Fallen Sinners – St Thomas said, As Christ became accursed of the cross for us, so for our salvation He was crucified as a guilty one among the guilty (Comm. xxxiii in...

    What is the craziest unexplained event you have witnessed? Jennifer Scholl, MSW from The Ohio State University (2018) First, let me say that I am and remain a huge sceptic, even after this happened. I’ve thought of every possible explanation and I still have no idea how this happened. Whether you choose to believe me or not, I have no reason to make this up and like I said, I’m skeptical every time I hear a story like this. But nonetheless, here is the completely unexplainable event I witnessed: In 1999, my mother was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor...

    The Church of Sweden declared teen star climate activist Greta Thunberg to be an appointed successor to Jesus Christ in a 2018 tweet that resurfaced in the wake of her speech before the United Nations. "Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg," the tweet said on Dec. 1, 2018. The account, operated by the Limhamns Church, had previously tweeted several sentiments of climate activism.

    If there's anything out there that explains why the Church of Sweden boasts the lowest church attendence in all Europe, against some tough continental competition, it's because of claptrap like this, as the Washington Examiner reports: The Church of Sweden declared teen star climate activist Greta Thunberg to be an appointed successor to Jesus Christ in a 2018 tweet that resurfaced in the wake of her speech before the United Nations.

    The reclusive director of the crucially acclaimed movie 'The Tree of Life' shows signs of taking a new, even more explicitly Christian direction. “What does Christ want from us?” According to Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick posed this question to his fellow director in a letter after seeing Silence, the former’s long-awaited film about Jesuit missionaries in Japan. Malick’s cinematic corpus has been marked by Christian themes, music, and imagery from the beginning. For example, those watching the fire scene from Badlands (1973) with the English captions on will see the following lyrics from German composer Carl Orff’s choral piece “Passion”:...

    The Bible is a record of real people, living out real history, and fulfilling the purposes of God, knowingly and unknowingly. All of the Prophets of the Bible in some way are tops of the Messiah to come. Moses, Joseph, David, Jeremiah, all lived out certain aspects of the suffering and triumph of Jesus Christ. Pharaoh tried to kill Moses as a child, just as Herod tried to kill the baby Jesus, Joseph was sold for silver by his brother Judah, just as Jesus was sold by Judas… I could go on and on. There are some also who are...
  • Disney's 'Tolkien' Movie Cuts Out the Christian Faith That Inspired His Life and Work

    Disney's new film Tolkien premiers this weekend, and the trailers promise an engrossing biopic, complete with scenes from the First World War. The movie aims to show how J.R.R. Tolkien's early life inspired the creative genius behind such works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, which are rightly recognized as classics and which both inspired epic film franchises (one far superior to the other). Yet the new Disney film cuts out some of the most important influences in his life. The movie does not once mention the great ex-atheist and Christian author C.S. Lewis, a close friend...
