    1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5 And they said...

    Commuters travelling in South-West London experienced delays Monday morning after passengers on a train forced open the doors and ran onto the tracks to escape a man with a bible. The incident took place near Wimbledon station, as a passenger on a packed commuter train started reading lines from the bible. Another passenger asked the man to stop because he was “scaring” others, but it was already too late and panic had set in. The Bible reading man was questioned by police after the train reached the station but was found to be carrying only books and water, and was...

    NEW YORK (AP) — On the latest list of books most objected to at public schools and libraries, one title has been targeted nationwide, at times for the sex and violence it contains, but mostly for the legal issues it raises. The Bible. “You have people who feel that if a school library buys a copy of the Bible, it’s a violation of church and state,” says James LaRue, who directs the Office for Intellectual Freedom for the American Library Association, which released its annual 10 top snapshot of “challenged” books on Monday, part of the association’s “State of Libraries...
  • Bible to Be Mississippi's Official State Book? GREAT!

    Christian Post ^ | January 21, 2015 | SAMUEL SMITH , CP REPORTER
    Lawmakers in Mississippi have introduced two pieces of legislation that, if approved, would make the Holy Bible the official book of Mississippi, even though such a move might conflict with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. With Mississippi lacking an officially designated book of the state, three Mississippi lawmakers, Reps. Tom Miles, Michael Evans, and William Arnold (also a non-denominational pastor), are sponsoring bills in the state legislature that would label the Holy Scripture as the state's official book. Evans told that the idea of making the Bible the official book of Mississippi came about when he was...

    JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli archaeologist says he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem, rekindling a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins. The claim by Eli Shukron, like many such claims in the field of biblical archaeology, has run into criticism. It joins a string of announcements by Israeli archaeologists saying they have unearthed palaces of the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city — but who has long eluded historians looking for...

    The House Committee on Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs voted 8 to 5 to pass the legislation, entitled House Bill 503. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Thomas Carmody (R-Shreveport), argues that the purpose of the bill is not to establish an official religion in the state, but rather to reflect America's history and founding principles as outlined by the country's Founding Fathers. "It's not to the exclusion of anyone else's sacred literature," he told the House committee, according to The Associated Press. Carmody added later: "This is not about establishing an official religion of the state of Louisiana." When one lawmaker...

    'What we once knew to be immoral, we celebrate' Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger” – the startling New York Times bestseller that suggests the U.S. is in the shadow of judgment from God for its rejection of Him – stood at the podium for this year’s Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Inauguration Day. Amid weeping, praying and the sounding of shofars from the audience, Cahn said the U.S. has chosen a path that takes the nation away from God, and he pleaded with its leaders to return. “What we once knew to be immoral, we celebrate,”...

    Am I alone; seeing the hand of GOD in everything? There has/have to be others. Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Rom 1:21 Because...
  • Iraq Rebuilding Its Military, Even as They Rebuild Babylon: Prophetic Significance?

    04/14/2012 5:28:00 AM PDT · by GiovannaNicoletta · 13 replies ^ | April 13, 2012 | Joel C. Rosenberg
    Bible prophecy indicates that in the End Times, the nation we know today as the Republic of Iraq—known variously in Scripture as Babel, Babylon, Babylonia, Mesopotamia and Shinar—will emerge as the global center of wealth, power and terrible evil. Eventually Iraq will pose a direct and existential threat to the State of Israel, particularly during the Tribulation. Since the fall of Saddam Hussein and his regime in 2003, Iraq has not been a regional threat, much less a danger to Israel. Some have assumed, therefore, that Iraq would no longer play a major role in Middle Eastern or global affairs...

    The Ignorant ^ | 4/6/12 | DJP, I.F.
    Through out this week we have heard and seen the coverage of the riots which have been taking place in England. As these lawless individuals rage against authorities and powers, they are totally oblivious to the demonic hypnotic state of mind which they possess (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). They are held prisoners of themselves from their own delusional subjective narcissistic world of victim status and burning rage. These have reaped their OWN lawless doings and need a scapegoat to destroy and to avenge their own self afflicted adversities (Gal. 6:7). The State - who is almighty god to them -...

    The Telegraph ^ | December 26th, 2010 | By Daniel Hannan
    I can’t be the only English-speaker who suspects, deep down, that the Almighty expressed Himself in the language of the Authorised Version. Even now, I do a double-take when I listen to a biblical passage in another tongue. I struggled to repress a chuckle the other day when I heard Matthew 5:5 rendered as “Bienheureux sont les débonnaires; car ils hériteront la terre.” Yesterday, the Queen reminded us that her ninth-great-grandfather, James VI & I, had commissioned the translation in the hope of impressing a measure of unity on the various theological currents then swirling about Britain. And, in a...

    Dishes rattled and buildings shook in the Schuyler area Thursday morning as a 3.3 magnitude earthquake rumbled up from one of the Midlands' many unmapped faults. “The whole house shook,” said Dave Svoboda of Schuyler. “The glasses in the cupboard shook; you could feel the floor shake.” Svoboda was at home, getting ready for work, when the quake hit at 7:02 a.m. As of late morning, no significant damage had been reported. But city employees were checking structures just in case, Schuyler Police Chief Lennie Hiltner said. Hiltner, Svoboda and others said they initially thought a nearby building had exploded...

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 6/19/2010 | Anthony G. Martin
    An elected official in southern city is taking heat from churches over his decision to proclaim today, Saturday, June 19, as 'Gay Pride Day,' complete with a march downtown. The churches banded together for a protest/prayer service/counter-rally on Friday. Organizers of the counter-rally state that they do not intend to disrupt the 'gay pride' parade today nor be a part of hateful slurs against homosexuals. Instead, they claim that their message is to the city official, Mayor Junie White of Spartanburg, South Carolina. In spite of the fact that the city is located in a very conservative area of the...

    Few people are aware of the political nature of the King James English Translation of the Bible. The Bible carried by early English settlers was the 1560 Geneva Bible (not to be confused with the 1599 Geneva Bible). It was marked for displacement by King James because of the unpleasant references to Kings and Tyranny and regicide sprinkled throughout the instructional commentary. With diligent effort by the Crown the 1560 Geneva Bible all but disappeared from common use within a few short decades completely replaced by the King James Bible. Read More…
  • Michigan weapons company Trijicon takes flak for rifle scopes with Bible verse

    A Michigan weapons company is under fire for branding thousands of rifle scopes used by U.S. soldiers and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan with passages from the Bible. U.S. military rules prohibit any service member from proselytizing while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, which are primarily Muslim nations. Trijicon, a sighting manufacturer based in Wixom, Mich., has several multimillion-dollar contracts with the Pentagon to make sights. Along with the sight's stock number, there are coded Bible passages from the New Testament engraved on the sights. One reads JN8:12, an apparent reference to John 8:12, which says, "Whoever follows me will...
