    When President Donald Trump arrived in Jerusalem for Israel’s 50th anniversary, Friends of Zion had billboards erected around the city declaring, “Trump, Make Israel Great” and “Trump is a Friend of Zion.” Little did anyone realize how much this president would do for Israel. Not only did he recognize Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, but he also shut down the PLO office in Washington, stopped the funding of the PA through the Taylor Force Act, and closed the consul in Jerusalem. He has now removed the anti-Israel declaration calling Judea and Samaria Bible lands “settlements,” with the announcement from the...
  • Andy Stanley Unhitches Jesus From the Scriptures, We Don’t Believe in Resurrection Because of the Bible – Easter Message

    Andy Stanley, son of famous pastor Charles Stanley, is a serial blasphemer and idolater who twists God’s Word — whenever he even discusses it — and uses it to create a false church built around a false gospel and a false Jesus. Andy Stanly has made a number of dubious claims about the Christian faith and in particular, the Scriptures. Famously stating that Christianity needs to “unhitch” from the Old Testament, he told his audience that the Ten Commandments don’t apply to Christians. He’s flopped on homosexuality — telling the mother of an openly-gay and practicing girl that her daughter...
  • [Russian Orthodox Spokesman] V. Legoyda: Pascha Was Celebrated During Plagues and Other Disasters, We’ll Celebrate It This Year As Well

    In the history of Christianity, there have been times when Pascha was celebrated during various social disasters, so the spread of the coronavirus infection will not interfere with its celebration this year, said Vladimir Legoyda, Head of the Synodal Department for Church’s Relations with Society and Mass Media. “When fellow journalists ask me: “What will happen with Pascha?”, I always answer: “Pascha will take place!” Pascha was celebrated during plagues, wars and other disasters, we will celebrate it this year as well,” said Vladimir Legoyda in an interview with RIA Novosti. Speaking about the fact that Christ’s Pascha “symbolizes victory...

    It’s now clear that COVID-19 is a deadly serious global pandemic, and all necessary precautions should be taken. Still, C. S. Lewis’s words—written 72 years ago—ring with some relevance for us. Just replace “atomic bomb” with “coronavirus.” In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and...
  • How a Good Lent Can Help Fix a Bad Economy

    02/29/2020 3:59:03 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 9 replies
    To those who see no link between Lent and our failing economy, it might be the case to look again. Economics is about people. It cannot be reduced to numbers, formulae and analyses. “The subject matter of economics,” observes economic historian Odd Langholm, “is properly the habits, customs, and ways of thinking of producers, consumers, buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, and all who engage in economic transactions.” That means our moral habits can have a definite effect on determining if our economy grows — or fails. In my new book, Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian...

  • Achieving Christendom Is America’s Best Chance at Overthrowing Abortion, LGBT Reign of Terror

    Christendom Is the Solution for the Emptiness of our Nihilistic Society Grave moral problems are tearing the country apart. For many, this is apparent in the form of broken homes, procured abortion, shattered communities and lost Faith. Many people get it right when pointing out the problems. However, they get it wrong when looking for solutions. Some get it wrong because they look for solutions that address symptoms, not causes. Others search for a way out that involves the least possible effort. In these politically correct times, people are told not to offend anyone by their proposals. Thus, they automatically...
  • Jesus is NOT Michael the Archangel {that's an Adventist belief}

    Millions of people wrongly believe Michael the archangel is Jesus Christ! While the Seventh Day Adventists believe Michael is deity, the Jehovah's Witnesses adamantly oppose the deity of Christ, even denying Jesus was ever prayed to or worshiped, but both sadly believe he is Michael! Let's look at their claims to see if this is credible. Michael the archangel is only referred to on five different occasions throughout the entire Bible. Four times are: Dan 10:21; Dan. 12:1; Jude 1:9 and Rev 12:7. The other time is the following one showing Michael is but just one of the archangels –...

    Kristine Johnson is suing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for reporting her husband’s sexual abuse of an underage girl. The lawsuit is an attempt to hold the church responsible for “loss of income, emotional distress and her family’s loss of her husband’s companionship,” to the tune of $9.5 million — plus $40,000 to cover their legal expenses. Johnson claims the church went against its principles of confidential confession when it reported her husband’s admission that he sexually abused an underage girl. Johnson learned of her husband’s crime in 2016. She and her husband responded, according to the...
  • Are Conservatives Soul-Searching in the Wrong Places?

    A brutal business climate and societal breakdown have brought major changes to America. In response, many Americans, especially conservatives, are soul searching for something more compassionate for those left behind. Unfortunately, they are looking in the most unlikely places: business and government. They will likely be searching for a long time. The controversy over this shift in mentality erupted with the publication of a Wall Street Journal advertisement in which major firms pledge a commitment to “stakeholder” capitalism, which holds businesses should be run having all society, not just shareholders, in mind. Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) stirred the pot with...

    Something remarkable just happened in St. Louis that you probably didn’t hear about. The Church of God in Christ, a seven-million-member black denomination, unanimously passed a historic resolution affirming the value and dignity of every human life and opposing the practice of elective abortion in America. A key excerpt from the Resolution on the Sanctity of Human Life reads: COGIC is one of the largest historically black Protestant denominations, which also include the National Baptist Convention, the National Baptist Convention of America, the Progressive National Convention, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, and the Christian...

    LA MESA, Calif. — An appeals court heard arguments Monday in a federal lawsuit filed by a La Mesa church against a state health agency, alleging violations of equal protection rights for “forcing” churches to have elective abortions covered in their health insurance plans. Skyline Wesleyan Church filed suit in response to a 2014 letter distributed by the California Department of Managed Health Care to various insurance agencies, in which the department said health plans must include abortion coverage, or be in violation of state law. The letter stated that “the Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act of 1975 requires...

    A group of pseudo-religious leaders gathered outside an abortion clinic earlier this month to “bless” the facility and the culture of death it houses. Because much like ancient cultures that use to burn children alive to appease their pagan gods, nothing says “spirituality” quite like killing infants. The group, who are about as godly as I am a mermaid, gathered outside the Whole Women’s Health clinic in McAllen Texas to sing songs and affirm the clinic’s work, including their legally sanctioned ability to poison and suck the brains out of a living reborn infant. “We do this to support the...

    The front-running Democratic Presidential candidate who is pro-abortion up until the first breath sang a rendition of "Jesus Loves the Little Children" at CNN's LGBTQ Town Hall in Los Angeles on Thursday. Elizabeth Warren sang the song in defense of gay marriage. She did not apply the song or its lyrics to unborn children who are slaughtered relentlessly by Democrat-protected abortuaries and whose blood money fuels her campaign. The church I grew up in, the first song I remember singing, "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus Loves the little children of the world."...

    PRINCETON, WV (WVNS) — Police say a man is facing numerous charges for disturbing a Sunday service and damaging a bathroom at a church in West Virginia. Around 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 6, 2019, an off-duty Princeton Police officer noticed a man running in traffic and attempting to wave down cars. After entering Rogers Street Community Church, the man, identified as Damon Reed, reportedly locked himself in the church’s restroom, tore off the sink, and reportedly screamed demons were trying to beat him. The officer called for backup after telling the congregation to stay seated. In addition to extensive...
  • Global Alliance of Religions Joins Push for UN Agenda 2030

    About a thousand representatives of world religions and other organizations gathered in Germany in late August to advance globalism and a planetary uniting of religions to promote the United Nations’ so-called masterplan for humanity known as UN Agenda 2030. Critics expressed alarm that self-proclaimed religious leaders were embracing dangerous world “order” ideas totally at odds with liberty and Christianity. The implications are massive. The controversial 10th World Assembly of Religions for Peace, backed by George Soros and the globalist-controlled German government and other powerful forces, aimed to unify the world’s religious organizations behind key elements of the establishment’s agenda —...

    Recently, the Superior General of the Jesuits, Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, declared that “the devil exists only as a symbolic reality.” He has said similar things in the past. He also made news in 2017 when he asserted, concerning Christ’s condemnation of divorce and remarriage, that we can’t know for sure what Jesus really said because no one recorded him on the spot. These and similar remarks make it clear that at least this Jesuit does not believe that Scripture—which teaches manifestly both the reality of the devil and the sinfulness of active divorce and remarriage—is actually the word of...
  • Mormon Church warns that coffee, vaping are no-nos despite fancy names, alluring flavors

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued a warning to members that coffee is prohibited no matter how fancy the name, that vaping is banned despite the alluring flavors and that marijuana is outlawed unless prescribed by "competent" doctors. The new guidance in the August issue of a church youth magazine does not include fundamental changes to the religion's strict health code, but clarifications are significant and seem to reflect growing concern about young Latter-day Saints' adherence to the rules. The article says it aims to clear up issues that could be confusing for young people within...
