  • Singer Carrie Underwood Talks God, Marriage, Miscarriages in New Show

    06/01/2020 5:16:18 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 45 replies ^ | June 1, 2020 | Katie Yoder
    Many in the media are racing to report the story of a Christian singer who has lost his faith. But there’s another, less told story also going around: That of a country singer loving God in the midst of suffering. American Idol star and Grammy-award winning singer Carrie Underwood is appearing in a new video series called “Mike and Carrie: God & Country” with her husband, former professional hockey player Mike Fisher. Released by the Christian nonprofit I Am Second, the four-episode show promises to give “insight as to how they, with two distinct personalities and careers, stay grounded in...
  • A Quick, Compelling Bible Study Vol. 11 – ‘Mission From God’ Edition

    Ranked high on my list of favorite movie quotes is one from the “Blues Brothers” (1980) when Elwood says, “They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from God!” Aside from its pop-culture comedic value, the concept of a “mission from God” is real, relevant, and, for some believers, a continuous nag on the soul. Count me among the latter and the reason why the following Scripture ranks high among my favorite Old Testament Bible passages: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here...
  • #ShoutYourAbortion Artist Insists: ‘God Is All Right With Abortion’

    05/22/2020 4:08:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | April 22, 2020 | Katie Yoder
    God and abortion are tied together, according to one artist who is regularly promoted by the abortion industry. Artist and activist Viva Ruiz recently accepted the position of “artist-in-residence” with Shout Your Abortion [SYA], a group that promotes women’s positive abortion stories. Ruiz, who has served as a Planned Parenthood panelist and has displayed art exhibitions throughout New York City, is best known as the founder of “Thank God for Abortion” [TGFA]. In a video for SYA that has gone largely unnoticed, she spoke about her work. Ruiz began TGFA in 2015 as a response to the closing of U.S....
  • How Alan Parsons Project Became the Soundtrack to Jordan’s Bulls

    05/09/2020 11:33:12 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 7 replies
    For every Chicago Bulls home game during Michael Jordan's career, first at Chicago Stadium and then at the United Center, he was welcomed onto the court with the same introduction song: “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project. Parsons had released the instrumental track in 1982, using it as the opening song for his Eye in the Sky album. Two years later, a Chicago disc jockey named Tommy Edwards was settling in at a local movie theater when “Sirius” began playing over the cinema’s speaker system. “I know this song,” the longtime radio personality recalled to NBC Sports. “It’s ‘Sirius’ by...

    What will keep you out of Almighty God's ETERNAL PERFECT and RIGHTEOUS Heaven will not be your application and practice of a moral and conservative lifestyle but REJECTING Almighty God's saving solution that is only found in Jesus Christ the Lamb of Almighty God. (John 3:36, Rom. 10:2-4). No doubt there is much more to comprehend about each individual's personal decision on this matter but whatever the hurt or pain or sorrow or addiction, Almighty God wants to help you and to bring you unto Himself; to love you and ETERNALLY heal as only He can (John 3:16-17)! Only Almighty...

    “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Thomas Paine’s oft-quoted opening of his influential essay "American Crisis," dated Dec. 23, 1776, was written to inspire patriots to join the American Revolution. Now, 244 years later, the sentence accurately depicts the state of our nation and the world during this health and economic crisis. Paine — conveying personal thoughts about the American crisis when a fractured six-month-old nation with rag-tag militias was fighting to win independence from the world’s greatest military power — wrote, “I thank God, that I fear not. I see no real cause for fear.” Trust is...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/17/2020 | By Bill Zwerger
    How else would one interpret his presumptuous proclamation at his latest press conference? What in hell (no pun intended) would prompt NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo to exclaim, in a most haughty manner, that in regard to "flattening the curve" (man, do I despise that term) "We brought the numbers down. God did not do that, faith did not do that..."? I mean, I realize that he ranks very high (top three by my calculations) on the list of America's most narcissistic public figures, but this is the next level arrogance.  If you think that this is even too much...

    During a press conference on Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, boasted about the lowering rate of novel coronavirus cases in the state while seemingly taking a jab at the faithful. “The number is down because we brought the number down,” he told reporters Monday. “God did not do that. Faith did not do that. Destiny did not do that.” “A lot of pain and suffering did that,” the Democrat continued. “That’s how it works. It’s math. And if you don’t continue to do that, you’re going to see that number go back up. And that will be...

    Return to Order ^ | April 2020 | John Horvat II
    With most of the nation under stay-at-home orders, the media are taking an upbeat attitude to the tragic lockdown. Most treat it as a temporary measure that we must endure before getting back to normal. Thus, the Internet is full of lists of things we can do while at home. They present lockdown as an opportunity for projects, hobbies, movies and home cooking that we never had time to do before. People can develop better family relationships and improve their marriages. All these things might help people cope with the crisis. However, I think this is a shallow approach. It...

    On Good Friday, Christianity’s most solemn day, lawyers for religious freedom are expanding their war on governors and mayors who have ordered an Easter church lockdown and ban on drive-in services due to the coronavirus. Notable cases in Kansas, Virginia, Kentucky, and Mississippi argue that the orders violate the First Amendment and religious freedoms that the country was founded on. And in Washington, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has strongly urged opponents to drive-in services to drop the ban. In a letter to Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, a ban fan, the Kentucky senator urged, "Religious people should not be singled...
  • A Psalm of the Cross.. Psalm 22 pt 1

    King David lived a thousand years before the coming of Jesus, the Messiah, of which He was an anti-type. The Spirit of Messiah gave him this prophecy of the Cross to foretell the sufferings of Messiah and the glory that shall follow.My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.(Psalm 22:1-2)WHY? The Righteous sufferer cries out, in a state of utter dereliction. Abandoned...

    Around the time Jews celebrate Passover and Christians celebrate Easter, the ABC television network airs the timeless 1956 classic film “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston, which is still the most popular rendition of the Exodus account to date. And yet, beginning in 1994, Steven Spielberg, former chairman of the Walt Disney Studios Jeffrey Katzenberg, and music recording mogul David Geffen decided to make a uniquely distinct version as their new studio’s first full length animated feature film. In 1998, DreamWorks Pictures released one of the most memorable and moving adaptations of the biblical account of Moses ever, and in...

    On Instagram, Hogan said social distancing could offer a religious “personal revival” for a world that needs it. --------------------- Thanks to the coronavirus, WrestleMania did not take place in Tampa this weekend as planned. And on Monday, the wrestler most identified with the city, Hulk Hogan, had a few things to say about COVID-19. In a religious-themed Instagram post to kick off Easter week, Hogan suggested this new era of social distancing was a form of punishment or discipline from God. “In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we...

    As Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) said to the alien invaders near the beginning of Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” “The earth is closed today!” The world continues to respond to the current novel coronavirus pandemic by closing everything from churches, to restaurants, to movie theaters and many other public spaces in order to limit person-to-person interaction. While my own family practiced “social distancing” this past Sunday by watching a livestream of our pastor, we reflected on current events and the changes we are all making. We talked about having peace in the midst of trouble and the fact that God...

    In light of the coronavirus epidemic plaguing our world and nation; many have been asking, "Does Almighty God even care and where is He?" Dear friends, in the ETERNAL PROVIDENTIAL mind and outworking of Almighty God, He RIGHTEOUSLY LOVES and desires ALL men to repent and to be delivered from their fallen humanity and the RIGHTEOUS WRATH to come (John 3:16-17;36; Acts 17:24-34, Heb. 9:27). So yes, God does ETERNALLY LOVE, care and is working ALL things together to that Divine ETERNAL purpose on our ETERNAL behalf; and for His ETERNAL GLORY! However, for the blood brought child of Almighty...

    This week an American patriot announced that he was doing something extremely sacrificial for the welfare of Americans. Minutes later “progressive” Twitter felt obligated to wage nuclear war over it. Mighty interesting times we live in. No? At great personal expense, and sacrifice to the welfare of his primary business—being the most successful maker of pillows in the history of the planet—he decided to retool his manufacturing plant to immediately begin to produce life-saving masks. His goal is 50,000 masks per day—at cost. Not only that, Mike Lindell, founder and creator of My Pillow, also announced that his business is...

    I understand what Ralph Northam, Governor of Virginia was trying to say. After all, he is the governor of all Virginians and cannot cater to one faith group above another. But his tweet could easily be misunderstood, and it does call for a response. On Monday night Gov. Northam tweeted, “Tonight, I held a call with faith leaders across Virginia. I'm grateful for their leadership in bringing people together spiritually, while remaining physically apart. “This virus does not care who we pray to or how we worship––we must all work together in fighting against it.” Mr. Governor, with all due...
