    Jeremiah 17:7,8 Blessed is the Man that Trusteth in the LORD, And whose Hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a Tree that is Planted by the Water, Which Spreadeth Out her Roots by the River, And shall not Feel when the Heat Cometh, But her Leaf shall be Green, And shall not Care for the Year of Drought, Neither shall Cease from Yielding Fruit.

  • Atheist Richard Dawkins: We Are ‘Apes,‘ Evidence for Jesus’ Existence ‘Is Surprisingly Shaky’

    The Blaze ^ | August 26, 2012 | Billy Hallowell
    Famed atheist Richard Dawkins sat down with Playboy Magazine to discuss “the simple beauty of evolution, the improbability of God and why the pope should be arrested,” among other subjects. As usual, Dawkins took a provocative approach in the interview — one that people of faith will surely find offensive. These contentious anti-religious views appear in the September issue of Playboy. (VIDEO AT LINK) Toward the beginning of the interview, Dawkins was asked to weigh in and explain why, in the past, he has called himself a “tooth faith” agnostic. His explanation essentially frames his overarching views on God’s existence....

    Tikkun Daily Blog ^ | 08/27/2012 | by: Rabbi Michael Lerner
    This was sent to Tikkun on email from Cath News and a column called “The Not-So-Social-Gospel.” It is a powerful reminder both of how far sections of the Christian world have strayed from the teachings of Jesus, and also a reminder of the tens of millions of Catholics who are deeply dedicated to social justice, peace, generosity and love (even though unfortunately they are stuck in a church whose leadership is more interested in demonizing gays and abortions and attacking American Nuns who take Jesus’ teachings seriously than in carrying on the progressive elements in Jesus’ gospel). It saddens us...

  • The Division Card...(Race in America)

    These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.(Proverbs 6:16-19)I have a friend, he is a christian, and a really decent person in every respect except one. He constantly makes insulting and unfair references to race. For example every Columbus day one can expect a comment like, “maybe we should break into someone’s house, give them...
  • Bitter Fruit Of The Arab Spring...Crucifixion

    They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.(John 16:2-3)In December 2010, Mohammed Bouazizi, an impoverished fruit dealer in Tunisia, long harrssed and stolen from by a female police officer, set himself on fire out of frustrated despair. He just couldn’t take the daily humiliation any more. Evidently Bouazizi’s frustration with the corruption and daily humiliation was shared by many of his countrymen, for the demonstrations which followed led...

    Deuteronomy 33:26,27 There is None like unto the God of Jeshurun, Who Rideth upon the Heaven in thy Help, And in His Excellency on the Sky. The Eternal God is thy Refuge, and Underneath are the Everlasting Arms: And He shall Thrust Out the Enemy from before thee; and shall Say, Destroy them.
  • This Is Their Hour And The Power Of Darkness

    Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.(Luke 22:53)The ordeal of our Saviour in his trial and crucifixion are recapitulated in last days of this present evil age.It seemed as though evil had triumphed and with impunity was boasting in the defeat of all goodness.Where was God when corrupt high...
  • Is It True Jesus Never Addressed Same Sex Marriage?

    Between the Times ^ | August 8, 2012 | Daniel Akin
    Today it is popular among those promoting same sex marriage to say that Jesus never addressed the issue, that He was silent on the subject. Those who affirm the historical and traditional understanding of marriage between a man and woman often are admonished to go and read more carefully the Bible. If we do so we are told we will see that Jesus never addressed the issue. So, the question that I want to raise is, “Is this assertion correct?” Is it indeed the fact that Jesus never addresses the issue of same sex marriage? When one goes to the...

    A Hymn and a Psalm for Sunday Posted on August 12, 2012 Happy Sunday everyone, Jesus is Lord ! Love Lifted Me James Rowe 1912 I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more, But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry, From the waters lifted me, now safe am I. Love lifted me! Love lifted me! When nothing else could help Love lifted me! All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling In His blessčd presence live, ever His praises sing, Love...

    Matthew 19:4-9 King James Version: 4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He...

    The Moderate Separatist ^ | August 9, 2012 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan
    It began innocently enough: a little unscientific sociological experiment born out of a coffee chat with a friend. How are Christians viewed in today’s ‘modern’ society? The question was stored in the back of my mind for quite a while, waiting for the right moment to be revealed. Social media presented the opportunity to get the ball rolling, and roll it did. A Twitter re-tweet from an atheist telling a person of faith “…your God isn’t real.” The arrogance of the statement was obvious. A mortal human believed she possessed the knowledge to single-handedly discount the possibility of a ‘higher...

    And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael...

  • Turkey's Fate...Islam In Prophecy pt 15

    The modern nation of Turkey is an important player in the events leading to the Day of the Lord. Though it is a Muslim nation at present, in the earliest centuries of the new testament church, it was in the Turkish region that the gospel first flourished beyond the borders of Judea and Samaria. The apostles took the gospel to what then was refered to as the Roman province of Asia, within decades of the resurrection of Jesus. Paul taught there for two years as recorded in Acts 19.The original letters of the Apocalypse were addressed to churches in Ephesus,...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | 8-1-12 | Trevin Wax
    If you’re like me, you’re weary of the excessive politicization of nearly everything in American culture. Can’t we just enjoy Oreo cookies without making a statement about gay rights? Or savor a chicken sandwich without fear of being labeled a hater or homophobe? Though I’m weary of our culture’s tendency to politicize everything, I believe this Chick-fil-A boycott has revealed some fault lines in our culture that will lead to increasing pressure upon Christians who uphold the sexual ethic described in the New Testament. Furthermore, in listening to the mayors of Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco, it’s clear to me...
  • Where They Draw The Line...Black Pastors

    I heartily commend a group called The Coalition of African-American Pastors, for the public stand it is taking against President Obama’s support for “homosexual marriage”, and for marriage as defined biblically. The Rev. William Owens, Jr., head of the “Mandate for Marriage” initiative and son of the Rev. William Owens, Sr., the founder and president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), told The Christian Post about the growing importance of the issue at an event on Tuesday.“It’s only going to increase because the very core of America is founded upon Judeo-Christian beliefs. That’s debatable to some people but you...

  • Wisdom Cries Out; The Olympic Opening

    Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:(Proverbs 1:20)What a privilege and opportunity for any nation to be able to host an Olympics. The opening ceremony is a unique opportunity to display the glories of the host country. But that would presuppose that the presenters actually believe in the validity of their own national story. IÂ’ve been told that an unprecedented one billion people around the world witnessed this yearÂ’s London opening ceremony. I also was eager to see how the narrative of the nation of Shakespeare, Donne, Churchill, the Puritans, Wilberforce and countless other of the remarkable...
