    The Aquila Report ^ | November 16, 2017 | Denny Burk
    This is a sad but predictable result of a pastor who leads a church to apostatize from the Christian faith. Walking away from Jesus is not a catalyst for church growth. On the contrary, it is the catalyst for church death. Believers in such churches will eventually leave, and those that remain to embrace the error will be an unfaithful remnant. It may be a gathering of people, but it will not be a gathering of born-again people and will not therefore be a church of the Lord Jesus. Two years ago TIME magazine highlighted an evangelical “megachurch” whose pastor had...

He asked the driver to move the Porsche, prompting a shouting match between the two. At some point, Melton walked back to the area where he had been trying to...

    The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) released The Nashville Statement, signed by evangelicals and pastors throughout the country. The statement affirms that marriage is between one man and one woman and that the approval of same-sex relationships is sinful. The message comes at a time when some in the evangelical community have revised their views on human sexuality. “Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be,” the statement reads. Article 10 of the statement...

    Well, speaking of work, sometimes this place tempts me to spend less time on it than I should. I love to chew the fat, don’t get me wrong. But maybe I can dine on the whole pig, so to speak. Maybe this is an odd place to mention it, but it’s possible that I may be the author of a theme song, from a Christian point of view, for “Let’s Make America Great Again.” This was requested of my musical (and spiritual) collaborator by an ASCAP affiliated Christian music publisher. ASCAP seems to be more into that; BMI (which I...
