  • Should I preach the Gospel in a Muslim country?

    Someone asked me the following question: “Is it wise to have open-air preaching in an Islamic country like Malaysia? The constitutional law in Malaysia is basically Islamic. The country appears to be democratic but deep down it is rooted in Islamic core values.” This is my response: The answer to this must be your decision, but I will give you my thoughts to help you to shape yours. First, I would find an appropriate place to preach, and then make inquiries about the legalities of speaking in the open air. Perhaps a permit is required, and having one will keep...

  • Easter and the Promise of Redemption

    Concerned Women for America ^ | April 18, 2019 | Penny Nance
    In this Easter season, I have been thinking about the importance of redemption. Over the years, by virtue of circulation in political circles, I have known personally some people involved in public scandals. The world watches as the media follows them relentlessly for days, weeks, or even months and then evaporates, leaving behind a scene of complete and utter self-inflicted personal destruction. Some of these folks are often distraught to the point of suicide. What the cameras don’t show is what happens after the hoopla dies down. Sometimes these folks turn inward and become bitter and permanently broken, but not...

    ROME - In a new interview, the former top doctrinal official at the Vatican praised Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s recent statement on the clerical sexual abuse scandals and rebuked criticism that the pope did not write it himself or should not speak his mind. Benedict XVI “has his style, he was helped by a secretary but intellectually he does not need help, because he has great experience and he remembers all those responsible for the fall of moral theology, which is one of the causes behind these abuses,” said German Cardinal Gerhard Ludwing Müller, former Prefect for the Congregation for...

    Lady Margaret Hall has announced that it will appoint Andrew Foreshew-Cain, who is the first Anglican vicar to enter into a same-sex marriage, as the new chaplain of the college. The vicar has previously served as a temporary chaplain for LMH, but will now hold the role permanently. Foreshew-Cain has previously faced homophobia as a vicar in the Church of England, having left his former parish in London, citing “institutional homophobia” as his reason for leaving. At the time he had claimed to be “blacklisted” from becoming a priest in a different parish, and criticised the Church as being an...

    MEXICO CITY - A Nicaraguan bishop said he will leave the country indefinitely as concerns for his security increase - presumably the product of his criticisms of the Central American nation’s president. Auxiliary Bishop Silvio Baez Ortega of Managua said April 10 he would travel to Rome - at the request of Pope Francis - after finishing Easter celebrations in Nicaragua, which has convulsed with violence for more than a year. Police and paramilitaries loyal to President Daniel Ortega have crushed protests calling for his ouster, and dissidents have been forced to flee the country. “I give thanks to Pope...

    In the days leading up to the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party was a direct action protest against the British government by British-American subjects in the Massachusetts Bay colony of Boston. On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists dressed up as Native American Indians boarded these ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. This event remains one of the most memorialized historic events in U.S. history, and its relevance has recently reemerged due to excessive U.S. government growth and its...

    HONG KONG - A Chinese bishop, asked to step aside by the Vatican last year, said he does not think he can concelebrate the Holy Thursday chrism Mass unless he agrees to China’s policy on the Catholic Church. Bishop Guo Xijin, the former bishop of Mindong, told that it is currently uncertain if he could join the chrism Mass because the government refuses to acknowledge him. “The government officials said in clarity that they do not recognize me as a bishop,” Guo told The bishop said he has been told that recognition would only come upon his applying...
