  • 'A Massive Shift Coming in What it Means to Be a Christian?'

    04/19/2011 3:05:48 PM PDT · by GiovannaNicoletta · 99 replies ^ | April 16, 2011 | R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
    The edition of TIME magazine timed for Easter Week features a cover story on the controversy over Rob Bell and his new book, Love Wins. Interestingly, the essay is written by none other than Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former editor of Newsweek –TIME’s historic competitor. Meacham, who studied theology as an undergraduate at the University of the South, helpfully places Rob Bell in the larger context of modern theology, even as he offers a basically sympathetic analysis. Meacham explains: "The standard Christian view of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth is summed up...

    ...Antarctic clams, snails and brittle stars, because of adaptation to their environment, have soft shells and have never had to fight shell-crushing predators. “You can take an Antarctic clam and crush it with your hands,” McClintock said. They could be the main prey for these crabs, he said. Loss of unique mollusks could jeopardize organisms with disease-fighting compounds, McClintock said. Sea squirts, for example, produce an agent that fights skin cancer. If the crabs eat them, it could bring McClintock’s research with that organism to a halt...

    Ron Paul, the Texas congressman and libertarian with an army of followers, says he will decide on a third presidential bid "in a month or so." But appearing on the Alex Jones Show, a syndicated radio program, Paul appeared to suggest Tuesday he is ready to take the plunge again "We are getting awfully close, and there is just a few other things that I have to iron out personally to make my final decision. But it has to come," said Paul. Paul's fundraising prowess in 2008 shocked the political establishment, though his legions of supporters failed to translate into...

Steve King's Conservative Principles Conference, and so, too, has Rep. Anthony Weiner. The outspoken New York Democrat tweeted his enjoyment at being booed by the Republican-heavy audience in Des Moines when Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) mentioned his name. And, while he was at it, Weiner took a big city dig at the middle American crowd's dental hygiene. In the congressman's own words: @RepWeiner: Perhaps the best thing of the week. The Iowa tea...

Take for example Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) who took to the House floor Thursday and said, "If my friends on the other side of the aisle want to strip funding from NPR because they believe -- wrongly, in my view -- that NPR is biased, then we should be given the same opportunity" and prevent taxpayer dollars from being...

    This is the time of year for phase two of the Christian mythology. Phase one was Advent ending with Christmas. Now it’s Lent which ends with Easter. At least phase one is a happier time, even if the gift wasn’t quite what was expected. But then, neither was the “Messiah.” That disappointment needed a lot of explanation by the Doctor of Law, Saul, who changed his name to Paul, probably due to his notorious reputation among earlier followers of Jesus. He supposedly had a reawakening that had something to do with forgiveness and mercy without punishment for his past inhumane...

    You may have missed it, but this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t just play host to a myriad of presidential candidates, but to famed actor Richard Dreyfuss too. Dreyfuss didn’t have a speaking slot at the premier conservative gathering, but rather was milling around the conference with his friend Roger Simon of PJTV. Is the star of Jaws, Close Encounters, and W even a conservative? No, not in the least. In an impromptu interview with HUMAN EVENTS at CPAC, Dreyfuss strangely described his political leanings as “libo-conservo-rado-middle-of-the-road-o.” When asked how he felt being around so many right-of-center individuals,...

Oneonta police tell the Daily Star of Oneonta that 27-year-old Korey Rowe and a 19-year-old Bronx man were arrested after selling packets of heroin to an undercover officer. Rowe was arraigned last Friday on a felony count of criminal sale of a controlled substance. Authorities say the Oneonta resident was released from Otsego County Jail after posting $10,000 cash bail.

Speaking to Arab television network Alhurra, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said Republicans made big gains in November because “a lot of people in this country … don’t want to be governed by an African-American.” Even more objectionable to some Americans, he said, is that Obama is a black president “who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone...

    In 2010, Democrats got shellacked nationwide by the GOP. Not only did Republicans become the majority party in the House of Representatives, they also made huge gains in state legislatures nationwide. Naturally, this would cause liberals and progressives to think their world was coming to an end. But Noam Chomsky, a far left wing professor of linguistics at MIT, says the Republican victory in November may be "a kind of a death knell for the species," according to an article at The Daily Caller. Chomsky made his feelings known in an interview with The Nation magazine: “There’s other factors like...

But the agency backed away from the report amid intense criticism from Republicans, including future House Speaker John Boehner. The report, which warned that the crippled economy and the election of the first black president were “unique drivers for right-wing radicalization and recruitment,” described the rise of “lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent right-wing extremist ideology [as] the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States,” according...

    OAKLAND -- City Councilwoman Jean Quan won the final tally Wednesday in Oakland's ranked-choice mayoral election, capping a dramatic eight days in which she came from behind and surged to victory because she had more second- and third-place votes than rival Don Perata. When first-place votes were initially counted after the Nov. 2 election, Quan had just 24 percent, and Perata had 35 percent. But Quan proved to be a more popular second and third choice among supporters of the other eight candidates, and in the end, she had 51 percent to Perata's 49 percent.

    Red Sox diehard Matt Damon promises to wear a Yankees cap (Gasp!) if 200,000 New Yorkers vote with the Working Families Party in tomorrow’s election. Say it ain’t so, Matty D.! Taking to YouTube to promote the progressive — some might say Commie — initiative, Damon, who just turned 40, said fans can “really cheer me up” by voting for the WFP. The Party, he claims, is for cheaper mass transit cards, clean water and more health care reform. “He says that last one like it’s a thing people would support,” points out Time maggie. “Aw! We’re glad to see...

    We live in a world of infinite “-isms.” Some are widely familiar – capitalism, communism, nationalism, Catholicism – while others are poorly understood. I always hesitate to categorize veganism among such systems of belief, because it is neither a religion nor an economic or political ideology. It is grounded in fact and does not seek to serve the interests of its proponents. It’s really less complicated than people seem to think. Despite its simplicity, many people have flawed perceptions of veganism. Either they view vegans as eccentric, self-righteous and elitist, or they admire them for their “extreme willpower” and level...

    NEW YORK -- Water vapor and clouds are the major contributors to Earth's greenhouse effect, but a new atmosphere-ocean climate modeling study shows that the planet's temperature ultimately depends on the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide. The study, conducted by Andrew Lacis and colleagues at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, examined the nature of Earth's greenhouse effect and clarified the role that greenhouse gases and clouds play in absorbing outgoing infrared radiation. Notably, the team identified non-condensing greenhouse gases -- such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and chlorofluorocarbons -- as providing the core...

    Hell Seriously Breaks Loose With Bill O'Reilly On The View (Whoopi, Joy Behar Walk Off The Set) Today Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the set after getting in a heated argument with guest Bill O'Reilly, who said, "Muslims killed us on 9/11." Before she left, Whoopi screamed, "That is such bu*l*hit!" The tension began the moment O'Reilly walked on and didn't great the panel with the customary handshakes hugs, and instead, fist-bumped them. Joy asked him, "Do you have OCD or germ-phobia?" Shortly thereafter, he needled Whoopi about her standoffish body language, and then intimated—with some incredibly creepy...

    American Conservative ^ | 2010-09-28 | Jack Hunter aka Southern Avenger
    The Republican Party has a history of using desperate times to call for drastic measures and when bailing out AIG, bolstering Medicare or bombing Iraq, that party has always been willing to go big and bold on some of the largest government expansions in this nation’s history. But what about cutting government? You know, that stuff GOP politicians always talk about during election time? One might think that in a political environment in which so many are desperate to reverse what they see as unsustainable government growth, Republican rhetoric might at least attempt to reflect that desperation. But when GOP...

    Education is filled with problems today.  Lax discipline, unions, lousy teachers, lousy parents, single-parent homes, drugs, and the sad spiritual state of our country. So what do Democrats think we should do?  Send more money to the schools and raise the standards.  What do Republicans think we should do?  Send less money to the schools and raise the standards. Why doesn’t Congress pass a law for all SUV’s to be completely safe and get 50 miles per gallon?  Why doesn’t Congress pass a law that all jobs must pay at least $75,000/year and mandate every state to have 100% employment? ...
