    Proverb 16 (NKJV) Wisdom Is Better Than Gold 01 The preparations of the heart belong to man, 00 But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 02 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, 00 But the LORD weighs the spirits. 03 Commit your works to the LORD, 00 And your thoughts will be established. 04 The LORD has made all for Himself, 00 Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom. 05 Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; 00 Though they join forces, none will go...

    Proverb 15 (NKJV) A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath 01 A soft answer turns away wrath, 00 But a harsh word stirs up anger. 02 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, 00 But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. 03 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, 00 Keeping watch on the evil and the good. 04 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, 00 But perverseness in it breaks the spirit. 05 A fool despises his father's instruction, 00 But he who receives correction is prudent. 06 In the house of the...

    Democrats are waging war on the faithful and are even comfortable booing God on national TV. Give it three more presidential election cycles and the Democrat Party’s platform will be expressly antireligious. Today, they still pretend not to hate the concept of faith or hold those who have it in contempt. You’ll see Hillary hitting plenty of black churches in 2016 – after all, that condescending empty suit is in no ways tired. But otherwise, Democrats are delighting in their opportunity to burden, harass and humiliate the believing. They use Obamacare to try to force the faithful to breach their...

    The husband and wife team behind the Oscar-winning Frozen said on Thursday that while Disney is open to bringing songwriters from diverse backgrounds, God is the only thing that they have seen censored since they have worked there. Speaking on NPR's Fresh Air show, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez told host Terry Gross that some of the preconceptions outside of the industry folks might have about Disney may not be exactly true. "Disney is not this sanitized place that you might imagine it to be. I mean, they hired Ashman and Menken after they did "Little Shop of Horrors," which...

    Preaching to the choir may not impress movie critics, but it seems to work at the box office, if the success of the micro-budget Christian movie "God's Not Dead" is any indication. The indie film about a college student who debates his atheist professor about the existence of God has grossed about $35 million in ticket sales so far, making it one of the biggest surprises of the year, with little sign of stopping as it enters its fourth weekend in theaters. In a landscape dominated by dystopian teen sci-fi and Marvel superheroes, that may not seem like a lot...

    Evolve, adapt or die. That is the fate of our current Republican party.

    Today in America we have no shortage of fools. That is an obvious no-brainer. A fool is - in the Biblical sense - a stupid, wicked (especially impious), or vile person; fool (-ish, -ish man, -ish woman). A scoffer, blockhead or reprobate, a despiser of Almighty God and all that is truly good. The secular definition of fool is: one who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding. In both cases we see that the fool is a sound rejecter of the Laws of Nature, and of Nature's God. What is Foolishness to Whom? Conservatives, conservatism, and the adherence to...

At this point, let’s take a look at his recent column entitled “Noah: One of the Most Moral Stories Ever Told,” sparked by the upcoming release of Darren Aronofsky’s film. Prager begins by reminding us that he has taught the Torah for more than 40 years, and that most of his teachings are available for download—for a small fee. He doesn’t go into much...

    The U.S. branch of the evangelical humanitarian aid organization World Vision announced this week that it will no longer bar its employees from being in same-sex marriages. Employees are still barred from having sex outside of marriage, but “marriage” will now include marriages between people of the same sex. World Vision U.S. president Richard Stearns tells Christianity Today the change is “not an endorsement of same-sex marriage,” but it’s hard to read it any other way. It’s certainly a disappointing loss for supporters of traditional marriage, but I’m not surprised, and here’s why. "I think you have to be neutral...

    Take that, Friedrich Nietzsche. The biggest surprise this weekend at the box office was not the success of "Divergent," which was widely expected to be the far-and-away frontrunner (and was, with an estimated $55.0 million). Nor was it the weak opening of "Muppets Most Wanted" (debuting at No. 2, with an estimated $16.5 million). Rather, it was the movie that opened in fifth place, "God's Not Dead." Unlike the two big-budget movies at the top, both of which opened on more than 3,200 screens, "God's Not Dead" was released by the small independent distributor Freestyle on just 780 screens, and...

    It was a miracle the ragtag, underfed and underfunded Revolutionary Army could beat Great Britain, the strongest military power on Earth. And it was a miracle that a fragile democracy, the only one of its kind in the world, would go on to become the greatest military and economic force the world has ever known. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., said, however, there is a simple explanation. Americans didnÂ’t make a king our sovereign. We didnÂ’t make government our sovereign. We made God our sovereign. WND asked Bachmann to explain why the founders believed God blessed America, because she is hosting...

    Proverb 24 (NKJV)Do Not Envy Evil Men 01 Do not be envious of evil men, 00 Nor desire to be with them; 02 For their heart devises violence, 00 And their lips talk of troublemaking. 03 Through wisdom a house is built, 00 And by understanding it is established; 04 By knowledge the rooms are filled 00 With all precious and pleasant riches. 05 A wise man is strong, 00 Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength; 06 For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, 00 And in a multitude of counselors there is safety. 07...

    The Week ^ | 04/24/14 | Damon Linker
    A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,...

    Proverb 23 (NKJV) Listen to Your Father 01 When you sit down to eat with a ruler, 00 Consider carefully what is before you; 02 And put a knife to your throat 00 If you are a man given to appetite. 03 Do not desire his delicacies, 00 For they are deceptive food. 04 Do not overwork to be rich; 00 Because of your own understanding, cease! 05 Will you set your eyes on that which is not? 00 For riches certainly make themselves wings; 00 They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. 06 Do not eat the...

    Surveillance video reveals the heroic actions of a Good Samaritan who came to the aid of a young mother and newborn infant being harassed by a menacing stranger on a commuter train in Philadelphia, Pa. “She moves from her seat and he follows her, he then swats at the baby,” SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel told WTXF-TV. “It looks as if he’s trying to get control of that child.” That’s when evangelical minister and fellow passenger Tameka Bates stepped up to escort the woman and her week-old baby girl away, while at the same time physically blocking the man’s advances....

    Proverb 22 (NKJV) The Value of a Good Name 01 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, 00 Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 02 The rich and the poor have this in common, 00 The LORD is the maker of them all. 03 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, 00 But the simple pass on and are punished. 04 By humility and the fear of the LORD 00 Are riches and honor and life. 05 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; 00 He who guards his soul...

    For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12 Evolution and Global Warming takes far more faith to believe than believing in God and creation. It may take a step of faith to believe in God or Jesus Christ, but the amount of blind obedience to follow such unfathomable explanations with absolutely no verification is a leap across the Pacific Ocean. To fundamentally believe animals came from fish and then those...

    FOX 411 ^ | March 20, 2014 | Sasha Bogursky
    Kevin Sorbo is sick of what he calls Hollywood's intolerance to those who believe in God. "There's a negativity towards Christians in Hollywood," Sorbo told FOX411. "And a negativity towards people who believe in God." It's not just faith that Hollywood is intolerant of. Sorbo, who has spoken out against President Obama's policies, feels the backlash from the entertainment industry for his political affiliations. "There's also a negativity towards people who aren't liberal. There's no question that it has hurt me in Hollywood that I didn't vote for Obama."
