  • George Washington letter on God and the Constitution surfaces

    02/11/2019 3:19:44 PM PST · by ETL · 12 replies ^ | February 11, 2019 | James Rogers | Fox News
    A letter on God and the Constitution written by George Washington is up for sale after spending decades in a private collection. The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania Constitution, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution. “It would seem from the public Gazettes that the...
  • How Duchess Meghan Markle Leans on Her Faith and ‘Close Relationship with God’

    “Meg is extremely faithful,” a longtime friend tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “We pray a lot together...She has had, and especially has now, a very close relationship with God.” Meghan, 37, was baptized into the Church of England in a secret ceremony last spring ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry. And the intimate service, which was a significant nod to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth’s role as head of the Church of England, had special meaning for Meghan, as faith is a key pillar for her. “A deep sense of gratitude and humility has guided her,” the friend...

    There are so many religions, let alone Christian denominations, how can anyone know what to believe?  And even if Jesus is the truth, which denomination can honestly claim to be the "closest" to the truth?  Who are the real Christians? Everything is Counterfeit Christianity For starters, it is important to understand that Judeo-Christianity predates all modern religions, beginning in the 20th century BC when Abram heeded God's call to migrate to Canaan.  His monotheistic faith not only set the stage for the Bible to be written, but also for the coming of the Messiah (the Redeemer of mankind).  Judaism proper—adherence to the...

    These are some of the most common lies that many Christians have fallen victim to.  I hear many of these quite frequently and in years past have even fallen for some of them myself.  The enemy has used each of these lies to sow great discord, apathy, and fear in the Body of Christ.   It's time to dispel them all. 1. "I must do _____ to be saved or keep doing _____ to stay saved." This is what virtually every religion teaches, but not true Christianity.   Unsurprisingly, every "Christian" cult teaches this as well.  The very definition of...
  • Fasting for Beginners

    Desiring God ^ | David Mathis
    Fasting sounds so simple, and yet the world, our flesh, and the devil conspire to introduce all sorts of complications that keep it from happening. In view of helping you start down the slow path to good fasting, here are six simple pieces of advice... 1. Start small. Don’t go from no fasting to attempting a weeklong. Start with one meal; maybe fast one meal a week for several weeks. Then try two meals, and work your way up to a daylong fast. Perhaps eventually try a two-day juice fast. A juice fast means abstaining from all food and beverage,...
  • Reflecting on Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Faith in the American Dream

    Those who fan the flames of divisiveness and disunity within this nation, do not rest on the foundation of Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy In the wake of the day designated to honor the contributions of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., intelligent Americans can wonder about the legacy of this incredible man of God. And, the embattled political spheres demonstrated they are not prepared to see the same vision as Dr. King. Even if only the “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial is used as a measuring stick, one can understand the words and intent that...
  • Is There A War Between Science And Religion? Examining Jerry Coyne’s recent case arguments

    ARC DIGITAL ^ | 01/21/2019 | Paul Manata
    Last month, The Conversation published biologist Jerry Coyne’s article, lovingly served up for audiences at Christmastime, “Yes, There is a War Between Science and Religion.” Coyne fancies himself a participant in a perceived war between faith and reason, science and religion. His mission: To show people they can’t believe the account of Christ’s birth—as depicted, for example, in the Book of Luke, Chapter 2—while simultaneously believing there’s crackers in the pantry. You use your eyeballs for the latter, but not the former, and it’s simply irrational to go through life with a bifurcated mind!It is of course odd to enlist...

    Faith and works.  Law and grace.  This is the age-old battle between God and man-made religion that started not when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, but long, long before—in the Garden of Eden, in the beginning, in fact.  This is a mega-post (so grab some coffee!), but please stick through to the end, because there is a blessing herein that the receptive heart will receive.  And please share with anyone you know, religious or otherwise, who is far from God. Was there law in Eden?  No, there was grace,...

    Prayer Warriors have seen this but we need everyone to offer prayers for Richie. Picture a few months old but the only one I have available. First a little history .... The last week of November, Richie received several vaccines which included the flu vaccine. On December 2nd, he was hospitalized with paralysis of his arms and legs. He was put on a respirator and the outlook was bleak. I posted a note on FB asking for prayers from family and friends. Richie is the grandson of a cousin who is more like a little brother than a cousin.

    I hired Bre Payton right out of college. She was green. She was unknown. She had never done TV. But she had worked through her last year of college, and I respected that. I interviewed a half-dozen people for the position. We met in the coffee shop I liked that had no seats, so we were by ourselves in crappy plastic chairs in the back. From the moment we started talking I realized she was a potential star. She was raw, yes, but that could be honed. She was eager to learn, to write, and to go places—not because of...

    George Opudo used to drive for Uber. Picking up and dropping off customers at Union Station in Washington, just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, he’d look at homeless people and think: “That’d never be me.” But in September 2017, Opudo lost his car, his job, and all of his worldly possessions. With no place to go and no food to eat, Opudo was homeless. “I was so hungry, I didn’t know what to do,” Opudo told The Daily Signal. Walking around Union Station, he asked a woman where he could find some food. “She said, ‘Go down to the...

    “Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11) The gospel was always and ever meant to be good news. It tells us who God is and how we can be saved. For many, the modern gospel has become a fear-based method of behavior control and doubt and jumping through hoops, just in case the “how” didn’t work, or in...
  • Albert Einstein's 'God' letter goes on auction

    Deutsche Welle ^ | Dec 4, 2018
    A letter written in German by Albert Einstein in 1954 is going under the gavel on Tuesday. Experts at Christie's auction house in New York estimate the so-called "God letter" could sell for up to $1.5 million (€1.3 million). "This remarkably candid, private letter was written a year before Einstein's death and remains the most fully articulated expression of his religious and philosophical views," said Christie's in a statement. The missive is referred to as the "God letter" because it addresses how Einstein felt about the characterization of God and Judaism in a then-recently published book on the subject by...

    For the servant (slave) of Christ (His soldier); all that he/she possesses is at the total disposal of Almighty God, to be used for His honor and glory here in time (Romans 12:1-5). Be not offended by what God wills, allows or uses in your life to further the Gospel message to a lost and dying world (Matt 11:6, Rom 8:28). Endure hardness as a good soldier (2 Tim 2:3-4). Sometimes the very thing in which we are seeking to preserve or save is to be on the chopping block and removed. Fret not my beloved, Almighty God is in...

    Christian singer Lauren Daigle has faced some backlash for appearing on the talk show of Ellen DeGeneres but she says her critics are missing the 'heart of God'. The singer was invited to perform on The Ellen Show following the release of her hugely successful album 'Look Up Child', which debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200 and number 1 in the Christian charts. Daigle took some heat from fans for singing 'Still Rolling Stones' off her new album, but she told Way FM Radio that Ellen had chosen the song. Opinions were split when Daigle posted a video...

    Writing this column just a few short miles from the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks, one is struck with the reality of what one man with evil intent can do. He alone destroyed the peace of what has been rated as one of the safest cities in the country. As a country, we’re learning that safety is never sure. With the string of mass shootings our society has experienced in recent years, we’re forced to master strategies we wish we never had to learn. Experts try to make it simple to remember, “Be prepared to act—to hide, to fight, or...
  • Atheists in the Trenches: Loss of Faith among Canadians in the Great War

    Active History Canada ^ | May 2017 | Elliot Hanowski
    Did the horrors of the Great War cause Canadian soldiers to lose their faith? Or is it true that there were no atheists in the trenches? The war has generally been seen as a powerfully disillusioning experience. Books such as Paul Fussell’s widely influential The Great War and Modern Memory portray the war as the origins of modern skepticism and cynicism. The idea of a “lost generation” of disillusioned Anglo-American vets is a widely accepted one. The situation in Canada, however, is a little more ambiguous. In his study of the war’s impact on Canadian culture, Death So Noble, Jonathan...
