  • What Really Happened at Nicea?

    Christian Research Institute ^ | June 10, 2009 | James R. White
    Summary The Council of Nicea is often misrepresented by cults and other religious movements. The actual concern of the council was clearly and unambiguously the relationship between the Father and the Son. Is Christ a creature, or true God? The council said He was true God. Yet, the opponents of the deity of Christ did not simply give up after the council’s decision. In fact, they almost succeeded in overturning the Nicene affirmation of Christ’s deity. But faithful Christians like Athanasius continued to defend the truth, and in the end, truth triumphed over error. The conversation intensified quickly. “You can’t...
  • "The Athanasian Creed: Incomprehensible?" (Sermon for the Holy Trinity)

    “The Athanasian Creed: Incomprehensible?”Today is Trinity Sunday--or, more properly called, the Feast of the Holy Trinity--and as such, this is the one day in the year when we confess the Athanasian Creed. Actually, we believe, teach, and confess the Athanasian Creed 365 days a year; it’s just this is the one day in the year when we speak it aloud in church during the service. You see, the church confesses three ecumenical creeds: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. They are called “ecumenical” creeds, because they are held all across Christendom. The Apostles’ Creed is the...

    “The Catechism in Six Parts: The Creed” The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, in a big national survey a few years ago--the Pew Survey found that 92% of Americans say they “believe in God or a universal spirit.” 92%! Well, whoop-de-do. Big deal. That doesn’t really say much. Who is this God you believe in? Allah, the false god of the Muslims? Sorry, I bear witness that there is no god called Allah, and Mohammed is his false prophet. Is this “god” you believe in some depersonalized “universal spirit” or “higher power”? That won’t do you any good,...

    ...Although [Sylvester Stallone has] been called a Republican, for supporting John McCain's 2008 presidential run, Stallone says he's not a member of the GOP. "May the best fighter win," he said. "I don't think you can be totally one-sided forever. Then you close your mind to all sorts of possibilities. It's just, 'Who comes along better at that time for what the planet is going through?' Right now, it's pretty confusing on every side." What does he think of the Republican frontrunner? "I love Donald Trump," he said. "He's a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? There are...

    October 2, 2012 11:25 AM ET Scott Stapp of Creed Scott Stapp may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but the Creed frontman said this morning on Fox & Friends that he's "disappointed" by the president and his administration, who Stapp said have made "a lot of promises, but no real delivery." While Stapp did not explicitly that he would cast his vote for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, he told the Fox News morning crew that he wanted a candidate with a clear plan that Americans could understand. "My heart and soul would really want someone like Reagan or...

    For Scott Stapp, the honeymoon was over before it even began. Hours after the former Creed frontman tied the knot with beauty queen Jaclyn Nesheiwat in Miami on Friday, the rocker was rung up for public intoxication in Los Angeles. Stapp, en route to his Hawaiian honeymoon, was stopped from boarding a plane at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday after airline personnel deemed the rocker "antagonistic" and "boisterous." A spokesman for the airport police, Lieutenant Tyrone Stallings, said the rocker was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in a public place and taken to the Van Nuys station for processing....

    Fight over $60k "medical treatments" with tainted L.A. detox doc SEPTEMBER 14--A business associate of rock star Scott Stapp, the Creed frontman, claims that the singer failed to reimburse him $60,000 paid to a controversial Beverly Hills doctor known for his unorthodox drug detox treatments. In a lawsuit filed this month in Florida's Orange County Circuit Court, Jeffrey Cameron contends that he paid Dr. David Kipper "for certain medical treatments received" by Stapp during a three-month period in mid-2002. Cameron, who works for Stapp's management company, does not further describe those treatments in his complaint and he declined to provide...

    NASHVILLE - An album of music prompted by The Passion of the Christ will go on sale Aug. 31. The songs did not appear in the biblical movie, but were inspired by Mel Gibson's bloody film. Called The Passion of the Christ – Songs, the disc includes original songs from the likes of Lauren Hill, Matchbox Twenty front man Rob Thomas and Christian rock outfits like Third Day and P.O.D. The first single to be released from the album is Relearn Love by Scott Stapp, the former lead singer for Creed, the group that made the 1999 anthem Arms Wide...
  • Conservative Rock Groups?

    I was wondering if anybody can name some conservative rockers. It seams most people in the Music Industry are Left-Leaning, especially the hard stuff. I think you could say the same for most entertainment personalities, including movie stars and directors. So if any of my fellow conservatives could point me in the way of some good conservative rock groups it would be appreciated.

    Mike Walker of the National Enquirer
    This story has a very strange source. I'm listening to the Howard Stern Show. Every Friday, Mike Walker, the national editor of the National Enquirer, comes on and they play The Gossip Game. Walker offers up four stories, with one of them being false and the other three true. The people on the show have to guess the fake story.Anyway, I thought the following story had to be the fake one, because I couldn't imagine it wouldn't have gotten much more coverage, but I can't find anything else about it. But, according to Mike Walker, it is a true story....

    The audience for some top-name music acts apparently is shrinking. Denver's Rocky Mountain News reports that David Bowie, Moby, Busta Rhymes and the Blue Man Group, who were scheduled to perform this month in the city's 18,000-seat Pepsi Center as part of Moby's Area: Two concert tour, have had the venue of their concert switched to the 5,000-seat CityLights Pavilion, owing to a lack of ticket sales. And some lesser acts are even having trouble fill, ing that smaller arena. The News states that the Roy Haynes and Michael Feinstein concerts scheduled at CityLights for later this month have been...

    Maybe Sting should start writing more instrumentals. The school teacher-turned-rock star topped Blender's list of the worst lyricists, thanks to lines that betray "mountainous pomposity (and) cloying spirituality," the music magazine said. The survey, contained in the November issue that hits newsstands next week, placed Rush drummer Neil Peart at No. 2, Creed frontman Scott Stapp at No. 3, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher at No. 4, and soft-rocker Dan Fogelberg at No. 5. Blender assailed Sting for such alleged sins as name-dropping Russian novelist Vladimir Nabokov in the Police tune "Don't Stand So Close to Me," quoting a Volvo bumper...

    Scott Stapp Relatives Panic He's Out to Kill Obama [911 Tape] Scott Stapp threatened to assassinate President Obama ... and his alarmed wife and sister-in-law made a desperate 911 call to stop him. Scott had just gone AWOL from a mental facility late last month, when his sister-in-law told the 911 dispatcher he was cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless on a bicycle. She says the former Creed frontman claimed to be a CIA agent and his mission was to kill Obama. Stapp claimed in a rambling video the IRS is trying to ruin his life because he's been trashing Obama....

    I'VE ALWAYS taken a dim view of wedding gift registries, on the principle that greed is bad and greed masquerading as courtesy is worse. But I relented, just for a moment, when I read about the public's reaction after learning that Jon Meis, the Seattle Pacific University student who disarmed a killer during a school shooting, would be getting married this month. Grateful strangers not only bought up every item for which Meis and his fiancée had registered, but also donated $50,000 to pay for their honeymoon and other expenses. The upwelling of generosity was heartwarming. Yet gift registries in...

    God is “agapic love,” the preacher said, and paused. “God”—I knew what was -coming, the man being mired in the -sixties—“is a verb.” He assured the congregation that as long as they were “doing agapic love,” that—left -undefined—was all they needed to do. I could hear around me the sighs of people who have heard something they wanted to hear. “God is a verb” is about as much doctrinal complexity as many American Christians seem to want, vague and useless as it is. They do not want anything too precise and specific, for that means exclusive, intellectual, and binding, nor...

Here is a translation of the general audience Pope Benedict XVI gave today in Paul VI Hall. Dear Brothers and Sisters, The Creed, which begins by describing God as "Almighty Father," as we meditated on last week, then adds that He is the "Creator of heaven and earth," and thus takes up the Bible's opening line.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, In this Year of Faith, I would like to start today to reflect with you on the Creed, the solemn profession of faith which accompanies our lives as believers.

    Muslim Brotherhood text reveals scope of radical creed Translated by Palestinian Media Watch, book details group’s goal of global Islamic conquest. One of the greatest beneficiaries of the unrest in Egypt has been the Muslim Brotherhood. Banned but tolerated for decades by successive Egyptian regimes, the Islamist movement is now emerging as a central player in the country’s resurgent opposition. On Tuesday, two Brotherhood representatives participated in an opposition delegation that met with Vice President Omar Suleiman for the first set of talks over implementing political reforms. Pundits have portrayed the Brotherhood as uncompromising zealots or beneficent providers of social...
