    Dr. Bill Hamon, known around the world as the pioneer and father of the prophetic movement, is celebrating 60 years of ministry and 80 years of living. This will take place at Christian International's 27th annual International Gathering of Apostles & Prophets, October 21-24, 2014 in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Hamon and his wife Evelyn are celebrating their 59th year of marriage, from which they have raised three children—all in the ministry with them—and have 11 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Hamon believes his first 30 years of ministry (1954-1984) was preparation for his second 30 years of ministry (1984-2014)....

    Chronological Historical Recap: What makes 'Smithmas' 'Smithmas'? Every river has its banks. What is the channel forged -- the definition of the river -- that we've come to know as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' "Smithmas"? Every river has its tributaries; and when it comes to "Smithmas" it's the same. As the Mormons annually celebrate Joseph Smith, his birthday, his advent, the Mormon Church adoration and over-attentiveness to Joseph Smith has openly competed with the focus Jesus Christ receives. The result? This continual cresting onto the banks of "Smithmas" has flooded our nation. Its headwaters are multi-faceted:...

    The bible says the world won't go out like a lion.. but rather in several small steps. This also happens to be how communism, socialism are taking over America. In the last days Christians won't be able to participate in society without taking the mark of the beast. That means no food, ability to use money or other active participation in society. Obama has got the ball rolling with Obamacare. The first small step. Christians can have a business. But they'll be expected to contribute to the Health Care Law, which pays monies for abortions. Knowing real Christians won't accept...

    Blog thread, discussion ^ | 9/2005 | Jakko
    The Biblical and historical evidence shows that the Moabites worshiped Baal. The pre-Islamic and Muslim sources show (a) that the Meccans took over the idol Hubal from the Moabites and (b) that Allah and Hubal are actually identical. Thus, whether the Meccans are Ishmaelites or not, the evidence is still strong and sufficient to conclude that Muhammad's Allah is actually Hubal, i.e. the Baal of the Moabites and thus not the God of the Bible. Muhammad incorporated the characteristics and names of various other gods into his new monotheistic message about Allah, but he apparently started the construction of Allah...

    Mormon Coffee (Mormonism Research Ministry) ^ | Aug. 8, 2011 | Sharon Lindbloom
    When Joseph Smith died in June of 1844, the Mormon Church faced a succession crisis. Mormon historian Richard S. Van Wagoner explained, “Despite frequent kidnaping and assassination attempts, Joseph Smith established no firm policies regarding presidential succession in the event of his death. The resulting confusion threw the prophetic transition into turmoil. He simply had not expected to die at thirty-eight. Never given to full disclosure to any man or woman, the prophet’s public and private statements between 1834-44 suggested at least eight different methods for succession, each pointing to different successors with some claims to validity.” (“The Making of...

    Friday, January 5 Dear Damon, I appreciate your moderate and respectful reply to my objections. It is often hard for non-Mormons to understand how Mormons believe all we do. You at least see how Mormon beliefs and our way of life could be satisfying to educated, reasonable people, among whom you presumably would include Mitt Romney. What troubles you is the implication of belief in prophetic revelation: Would Mormons perform any dire deed for their prophet no matter how contrary to conscience? And what about the belief that the United States and the Church might combine to dominate the world...

He stood up when few were willing and said why it was dangerous -- over and over again. He called the President of the United States to task for not paying attention. There would be extremely serious consequences for ignoring the problem, he insisted. He spoke, he pleaded, he demanded. He did everything up to and including begging for something to be...

Denmark's intelligence service said it arrested four men in two raids in suburbs of the capital, Copenhagen, and seized an automatic weapon, a silencer and ammunition. Swedish police said they arrested a 37-year-old Swedish citizen of Tunisian origin living in Stockholm.

He lived in the ninth century before Christ, and his influence dominated Hebrew thought for centuries although he left no writings. He was an unusual man, unconventional, physically robust, a man who survived many ordeals (I Kings 17-21). In an arduous trip across the desert to Mount Horeb, he reenacted the experiences of Moses when he received the law. His communication with God amplified the application of the Ten Commandments in an era of more complex social life. To prove the authenticity of his God,...

    One day he's dissing gay activists as immoral "buggers" and perhaps the "greatest threat" to the nation. Then, he's embracing anti-discrimination legislation and conceding the "right" gay residents have to job and housing protections. What swayed state Sen. Chris Buttars? His church. In November, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced its support of Salt Lake City's measures safeguarding gay and transgender residents from discrimination. Suddenly, Buttars, R-West Jordan, and his Mormon colleagues on the right who had vigorously -- and vociferously -- opposed such laws faced a choice: Should they back or buck their church?

    Almost 500 years ago, on the wall of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses, characterizing as "madness" the notion that papal pardons could absolve individuals for their sins. As viewed from Rome, Luther had maligned, even defamed, the church. Luther was eventually excommunicated. His conduct ultimately led to the creation of a Protestant Church in Germany and a Reformation throughout Europe. It is difficult to believe that in the 21st century anyone would seriously propose that conduct such as Luther's should be deemed illegal. But a few weeks ago, the General Assembly of the...

The finding helps corroborate the story pertaining to the biblical minister's demand to have the prophet Jeremiah killed. The seal impression, or bulla, with the name Gedalyahu ben Pashur, who served as minister to King Zedekiah (597-586 BCE) according to the Book of Jeremiah, was found completely intact just meters away from a separate seal impression of another of Zedekia's ministers, Yehukual ben Shelemyahu, which was unearthed three years...

    Spanish villages are abandoning the centuries-old tradition of burning effigies of the Prophet Muhammad for fear of offending Muslims. The annual festivals...feature locals donning medieval costumes to re-enact battles between "Moors and Christians" during the Reconquista period. The fiestas celebrate events in 1492, when the Catholic kings of northern Spain defeated and expelled Islamic forces, ending more than 800 years of Moorish rule in the Iberian Peninsula. Traditionally the festivities have culminated with the burning of mannequins of the Mahoma, a figure based on the Prophet Muhammad, to represent the final defeat of Islam in the region.

The drawing appears in Studi Cattolici, a monthly magazine with links to the ultra-conservative Roman Catholic group, Opus Dei. It shows the poets Virgil and Dante on the edge of a circle of flame looking down on Mohammed. "Isn't that man there, split in two from head to navel, Mohammed?" Dante asks Virgil.

The BBC were even more gutless and went one step further, offering a complete apology to the Muslim comunity just for showing a foriegn newspaper containing the cartoons. This is the same organisation that had no hesitation offending Christians in 2005 by broadcasting 'Jerry Springer, the Opera' despite receiving over 45,000 complaints.

    It doesn't take Valentine's Day for me to acknowledge my lifelong love affair with the First Amendment. But these days as I read the free press and watch the TV news, I'm enraged by these violent, self-righteous, Islamo-fascists who are threatening to destroy and kill anyone who dares express beliefs in a fashion of which they do not approve. It disappoints me that anyone, never mind people of my guild, would kowtow to these fanatics. "I don't understand why anyone would even publish these cartoons," said Evan Thomas of Newsweek on the "Imus Show" last week, in a moment of...

    February 10, 2006 Islamabad, Pakistan With the understandable outrage over the blasphemous cartoons tearing apart the Middle East, I felt I had to lend my support to my Islamic brothers and sisters. I chose my friend Scooter to accompany me on a trip to Islamabad, Pakistan, where we were to join the locals in protesting western infidels who make a mockery of the religion of peace. Since Scooter has an art degree, I put him in charge of creating our signs while I contacted a friend with connections to the protest leaders. I also tried to get hold of Peace...

  • Muhammad Cartoons: To Publish or Not to Publish?

    02/07/2006 1:02:02 PM PST · by poisonivy27 · 14 replies · 719+ views
    Muslims continued to react violently to cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad today, prompting Denmark’s prime minister to call the situation a “global crisis” that is resulting in more deaths and destruction with each passing day. The decision of Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten to publish the cartoon last September—and media in Europe and American to follow suit—has ignited a firestorm of violence from Syria to Lebanon and Afghanistan to Indonesia. The debate is even raging in America. Former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan blamed the European press for inciting a religious war, while syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin has repeatedly asked U.S. newspapers...
  • What would Prophet Mohammed have done?

    Keep to forgiveness (O Mohammed), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant. The Koran, Chapter 7, Verse 199 During his lifetime, Prophet Mohammed endured insults and ridicule on a daily basis. His opponents mocked his message and used physical violence to stop him from challenging the status quo. At no stage during this ordeal did the Prophet lose his temper or react to these provocations. Tradition has it that he would, instead, offer a prayer of forgiveness to those who showed contempt for him. Today, however, many followers of Prophet Muhammad are acting the exact opposite. Reacting to...

    Anger over cartoons spreads in Europe AP Gaza City: Rage against caricatures of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) poured out across the Muslim world on Saturday, with aggrieved believers calling for the execution of those involved, storming European buildings, and setting European flags afire. The cartoons, first printed in Denmark, and then published elsewhere in Europe, have touched a raw nerve, in part because Islamic law is interpreted to forbid any depictions of the Prophet. Muslims in Europe have reacted less passionately than their counterparts in the Mideast and Southeast Asia, but on Saturday, anger in Europe swelled, too, with demonstrators clashing...

    From Michelle Malkin this morning:Lost Budgie points to an interesting admission in today's Globe and Mail:“The protests in the Middle East have proven that the cartoonist was right,” said Tarek Fatah, a director of the Muslim Canadian Congress. “It's falling straight into that trap of being depicted as a violent people and proving the point that, yes, we are.”

    NORFOLK, Va. - Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land." "God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'" Sharon, who ordered Israel's withdrawal from Gaza last year, suffered a severe stroke on Wednesday. In Robertson's broadcast from his Christian Broadcasting Network in...
