    DC Metro ^ | 30 January 2019 | By John Stoltenberg
    When the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” comes on the pre-show soundtrack, it’s a tipoff that C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters is going to be a diabolically delightful evening of theater and infernally amusing. The script is deftly adapted for the stage by Max McLean (who also directs) and Jeffrey Fiske from Lewis’ popular epistolary novel wherein the moral universe is turned upside down: God is “The Enemy” and the Devil-in-chief is “Our Father.” The Screwtape Letters is obliquely a story about the vicissitudes of faith and the joke is that it’s set in Hell, where Screwtape is a...

    A second coming of Jesus Christ will have to wait. DC Comics decided to cancel the release of a comic book titled "Second Coming" that featured Jesus as the sidekick of a superhero named Sun-Man following a wave of backlash from online critics who labeled the book "blasphemous." The co-creators of the comic, writer Mark Russell and artist Richard Pace, announced the cancellation last week on their Twitter pages. It was scheduled to be released on March 6 under DC Vertigo, a wing of DC which publishes comics with more of a graphic or adult tone. "My goal is...

    UPPER ST. CLAIR, Pa. (KDKA) – Westminster Presbyterian Church in Upper St. Clair is one of the largest Presbyterian churches in southwestern Pennsylvania with over 1700 members. One of those long-time members, David Reiter, was also the church administrator for 17 years. It turns out, police say, that he was also a big time thief, stealing more than $1.2 million from the church between 2001 and 2018 In a lengthy complaint, the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office has charged Reiter with 10 counts, including forgery, criminal conspiracy, and theft. The complaint alleges that Reider stole over $979,000 through an electronic...

    From the dangers of moral relativism, to the destruction of the family, the threat of atheism and communism, the allure of false doctrines like situation ethics and biological determinism, sexual immorality, pornography, birth control and abortion, Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen preached 60 years ago against all of the evils that have now infected the West like metastatic cancer. It's hard to deny that Sheen had a field of vision that reached far into the future beyond his own lifetime. Of course, anyone with as profound a knowledge of history, philosophy and the human character as Sheen had can appear...

    Police are investigating the theft of more than a dozen stained-glass window panes from a 126-year-old church in Braddock. A passerby noticed the theft Thursday morning at the former First United Presbyterian Church on Parker Avenue, according to a spokesman for the Mon-Valley Initiative. The church, built in 1893, shut down in 2017. The Mon-Valley Initiative bought it last year and planned to redevelop the church into housing while retaining much of the original features, said spokesman Jason Togyer. The thief or thieves made off with 13 panes of glass ranging from 2 square feet to 3 feet by 2...

    Dr. David Neiman explores the historicity of the Biblical accounts of Joseph and the Exodus from Egypt. Joseph rises to the position of "Tzafnat Pa'aneakh" after successfully helping the Pharaoh of Egypt with his economic plans. Under Joseph's guidance all land became the property of Pharaoh. A new Pharaoh comes to power who does not favor the Israelites. They are enslaved and forced to build the storage cities of Pithom and Ramses. These cities were arsenals for the armies of Egypt. Under Seti I and Ramses the II, Egypt was on the warpath. Ramses II was defeated at the battle...

  • What Christian Leaders Can Learn From Donald Trump

    Christian Post ^ | Michael Brown
    We can learn a thing or two from Trump in the midst of his flaws and imperfections. 1) Don't avoid confrontation. We often try so hard to be "nice." At all costs, we do not want to offend. But sometimes confrontation is necessary and important, and there are scores of biblical examples for this... 2) Don't be a slave of public opinion. It's becoming increasingly clear that Trump controls the media much more than the media controls Trump. This is not to say that he doesn't care about polling and negative reports. Nor is this to say that we should...

    JJoseph Carey Merrick (5 August 1862 – 11 April 1890), sometimes incorrectly named John Merrick, was an English man with very severe deformities who was first exhibited at a freak show as the "Elephant Man", and then went to live at the London Hospital after he met Frederick Treves, so becoming well known in London society.... [Some persons remarked on Merrick's strong Christian faith (Treves is also said to have been a Christian), and his strong character and courage in the face of afflictions earned him admiration.] Between 1979 and 1982, Merrick's life story became the basis of several works...

    Did the Roman Empire help to spread Christianity, and if so, in what ways? Pax Romana During the times of Christ and the Apostles, the Roman Empire was the dominant world power and they subjugated all nations which they conquered, but they also allowed them certain freedoms, like the freedom to worship in their own way. The mighty empire brought a domineering power to the world, but it also brought a peace that the world had not known for some time. It was called “Pax Romana,” which is Latin for Roman Peace and so the Romans brought a state of...
