  • Clinton’s Pastor Says Hillary’s Loss Worst Injustice Since Christ’s Crucifixion [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 13 August 2017 | John Semmens
    Methodist minister Bill Shillady compared Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and concluded that “it was the second worst instance of injustice in human history. In both cases we saw exemplary paragons of virtue punished for the sins of others.” Shillady predicted “a Hell on Earth under the demon that is Donald Trump,” but offered a ray of hope that “the forces of righteousness will triumph in the end. Right now, true believers are working assiduously to unseat the unholy Trump and clear the way for the ascension of...

  • Archeologists Find New Evidence of Lost City of Julias Near Sea of Galilee

    Real Clear Life ^ | August 7, 2017 | Rebecca Gibian
    After decades of searches by archeologists in the upper Jordan Valley, the lost Roman city of Julias, believed to be the birthplace of Jesus’s apostles Andrew, Peter and Philip, may have recently been unearthed. The discovery was made during excavations at Beit Habek, located in Bethsaida, by archeologist Dr. Mordechai Aviam, head of the Kinneret Institute for Galilean Archeology at Kinneret Academic College. Bethsaida was once a fishermen’s village on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, and is mentioned in several New Testament books as the home of at least three of Jesus’s most important apostles, reports the...

    3 Lines in the Sand from Stephen Nichols Aug 04, 2017 Category: Articles At the turn of the twentieth century, the sciences supposedly knew better than the Bible. Now, the social sciences supposedly know better than the Bible. And we are seeing this new world-view presented artfully and entertainingly through a barrage of media and in the halls of the academy. A casual watcher and listener will be exposed to countless gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, acts, and ideas—and all without ever leaving mainstream media outlets. These are the times we live in (see TheStateofTheology.com).These challenges have a cumulative effect. They...

    Unsealed ^ | 7/18/17 | Gary
    The Bible repeatedly states that simple belief in Christ is sufficient for salvation because Christ satisfied all the necessary requirements through His atoning sacrifice.  Through faith in Him we have entered into a permanent Sabbath and have rested from our works (Hebrews 3-4). Though it is through faith alone in Christ alone that we are reconciled to God, we have to be very careful to recognize the Christ to whom we refer.  There are many people named Jesus and many who have been called Christ, but there is only one Jesus Christ with the power to save you.  Many who...
  • Long Island Cops Investigate Whether Jesus Is a Hate Crime

    Is Jesus a hate crime? Police on Long Island ponder this question in the aftermath of an anonymous donor placing a picture of the crucifixion on a fence outside a mosque in New Hyde Park, New York. The cops reportedly regard the gift as a “bias incident” against Muslims. But the tacky turquoise picture featuring squiggly lines and a silhouette Christ seems more of an offense against aesthetics than the law. A worker at the Hillside Islamic Center found the artwork at around 5:30 p.m. on Friday. He immediately phoned the police. Surveillance video captured a frame-by-frame account of the alleged criminal...

An employee at the Hillside Islamic Center in Nassau County on Long Island discovered the painting hanging from a fence on the property on Friday, NBC New York reports. Authorities are still looking for the individual who put the painting there and police in Nassau County are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
  • Question: "What makes Christianity unique?"

    gotquestions.org ^ | unknown | unknown
    Answer: Is Christianity really unique, or is it just one of many roads on the path to Truth? Is Christianity truly unique among the many religions around the world? If it is, what makes it so? Unique among all religions, Christianity makes several claims that others do not. First, all other religions exhort man to reach up to God and grasp hold of Him through their own efforts. Christianity is the only religion where God reaches down to man. Second, other religions are systems of do’s and don’ts to appease God; whereas Christianity is a relationship with God. Third, Christianity...

    Sacred Heart and Divine Mercy? Q. I wanted to know if there is a connection between the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Heart of Divine Mercy. The painting of the Divine Mercy reminds me a lot of the Sacred Heart, or am I off-base? Also, what is a good source to understand the Divine Mercy better? Diane, via e-mail A. The devotions are distinct historically but are obviously related since they point to the one and same Lord Jesus, our merciful and great High Priest. But they also have in common the desire to emphasize that, although Christ will...

Charles Pope • June 8, 2016 • In the Gospel yesterday (Tuesday of the 10th week) the Lord describes what a Christian is and what He expects of us. He uses two different metaphors: salt and light. Yesterday’s post considered the metaphor of salt.Today let’s consider the metaphor of light. The Lord says,You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it...

    On a humid afternoon this past November, I pulled off Interstate 75 into a stretch of Florida pine forest tangled with runaway vines. My GPS was homing in on the house of a man I thought might hold the master key to one of the strangest scholarly mysteries in recent decades: a 1,300-year-old scrap of papyrus that bore the phrase “Jesus said to them, My wife.” The fragment, written in the ancient language of Coptic, had set off shock waves when an eminent Harvard historian of early Christianity, Karen L. King, presented it in September 2012 at a conference...

  • The Red Pill Moment...salvation as escape pt 1

    I have been running across a cultural reference lately which I hadn’t given much thought to, until the sheer repetition of it in reading, and media and even some conversation, led me to look it up. The reference is to “taking the Red Pill” or people coming to a “Red Pill moment”. What does it mean? (Where else to go but Wikipedia?) The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular cultural symbols representing the choice between: Knowledge, freedom and the (sometimes painful) truth of reality (red pill) or Falsehood, security and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue...

And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole...

  • Do you know Jesus Christ?

    Hi guys. I don't know where to post this, but the Lord has been laying it on my heart for the past few days to tell people about Jesus. This burden is so strong that I have felt sick and very desperate to reach out to others and tell them about Jesus. I asked my Pastor if there were any ministries I could do through my church to serve God, but all he said to me was that if there was anything, he'd let me know. God has been driving me to serve Him so bad that I don't think...

             It's Sunday morning and a throng of churchgoers file into the biggest building on the block. The stadium-style seating in the sanctuary surrounds an elevated stage, indicating a culture accustomed to entertainment and a hands-off approach to the preaching and teaching of God's word. No pulpit or Bible is in sight...only a stool and a large video screen.          The fliers had already been sent out into the neighborhood, and today the church is starting yet another topical sermon series—this time on marriage and family. The praise band finishes their last song...
