    Ugandan president repents of personal, national sins 'We confess idolatry, witchcraft, political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue' "The Ugandan newssite New Vision reports President Yoweri Museveni celebrated Uganda’s 50th anniversary of independence from Britain at the National Jubilee Prayers event by publicly repenting of his personal sin and the sins of the nation. “I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to...
  • Westminster Confession - Chap 15 - Repentence unto Life

    12/16/2010 5:17:53 PM PST · by HarleyD
    Chapter XV Of Repentance unto Life I. Repentance unto life is an evangelical grace,[1] the doctrine whereof is to be preached by every minister of the Gospel, as well as that of faith in Christ.[2] II. By it, a sinner, out of the sight and sense not only of the danger, but also of the filthiness and odiousness of his sins, as contrary to the holy nature, and righteous law of God; and upon the apprehension of His mercy in Christ to such as are penitent, so grieves for, and hates his sins, as to turn from them all unto...

    A DAY FOR PRAYER: AUGUST 19 Erma Wolf The divisions in the ELCA are not going away. In spite of repeated cries that the current disagreements regarding blessing of same-gender relationships and GLBT persons in same-gender relationships serving in rostered ministry should not be church dividing, the ELCA is in fact divided. The number of congregations that are struggling with reactions among the members to the 2009 churchwide assembly decisions is, in some synods, very large, even if most of those congregations are not taking votes to leave. Pastors, regardless of their own stand on these matters, find that some...

    Question: I am a born-again Christian, having come to faith 10 years ago when I admitted to Christ I was a sinner, believed that Christ is God's Son and that He died for me and rose again, and choosing to live my life with Him as my Savior. I have a problem with your response to the homosexual question. You write that homosexuals do not go to heaven. If homosexuals do not go to heaven, then neither do boasters, adulterers, self-centered people, thieves, liars, or anyone for that matter. You write that "So, you see, there is hope for anyone,...

    The Remarkable Experience of Euley Hudson James Brooks I first met Euley Hudson about 20 years ago. He was an independent evangelist. Some years before, while working as a car salesman, he felt God calling him to go around the world preaching the gospel. No church, denomination, or mission board that he approached would back him, so he determined to go forth on his own. He told God that though man would not back him, he was going to obey God and let God provide. God did indeed provide him with the means to go around the world and he...

    NASA administrator Michael Griffin made headlines last week when he told a National Public Radio interviewer he wasn't sure global warming was a problem. "All I can really do is apologize to all you guys ... I feel badly that I caused this amount of controversy over something like this," said Griffin. The head of NASA told scientists and engineers that he regrets airing his personal views about global warming during a recent radio interview, according to a video of the meeting obtained by The Associated Press. NASA administrator Michael Griffin said in the closed-door meeting Monday at the Jet...

    Rabbi Mordechai Friedfertig ^ | 2001-2003 | Rabbi Mordechai Friedfertig
    How do we relate to a person who has sinned and repented? Jewish Law is very clear on this question. The Mishnah in Bava Metzia (4:10) rules that it is forbidden to remind someone of their past sins after they have done Teshuvah. You may never say to someone, "Hey, I remember when you used to eat pork!" or "Remember how much you used to love golfing on Shabbat?" No matter what their purpose, such statements fall into the category of "Ona'at Devarim - hurting another person with words" (see also Rambam, Hilkhot Teshuvah 7:8). But what about reminding yourself...

Years later, he saw them again, and by the time he was in high school, he had a few tucked away in his bedroom. "No one ever told me those images would burn themselves into my mind and come back to haunt me," wrote Christian music artist Clay Crosse in I Surrender All: Rebuilding a Marriage Broken by Pornography. Clay co-authored the book with his wife Renee and author Mark Tabb. Little did he know that his boyhood fascination...

    THE WASHINGTON TIMES ^ | January 23, 2006 | By Julia Duin
    Virginia's largest Episcopal parish, in a letter to the church's 2,200 members, yesterday called on Virginia's the Rt. Rev. Peter J. Lee to "repent and return to the truth" over supporting the ordination of the openly homosexual bishop of New Hampshire. Leaders of the Falls Church Episcopal said in their eight-page, single-spaced letter that "no compromise on this issue is possible," although they refrained from specific threats. In the past, the parish's rector has threatened schism. "A Christian leader does not approve of sin, or purport to declassify it," the letter said to Bishop Lee, who backed the 2003 consecration...
  • Orthodox Sunday of the Samaritan Woman

    The Reading is from John 4:5-42 At that time, Jesus came to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacob's well was there, and so Jesus, wearied as he was with his journey, sat down beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink." For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me,...

    Yes. I am new to this website and was wondering why my account was banned? I posted an article I wrote about how Buddhism not Islam is a threat to America and is the fastest growing religion instead of Islam. I noted how Buddhism denies the existence of God and the divinity of Christ, I also made note of how Buddhists practice an evil satanic ceremony called doku. It is a ritual where Buddhist monks use a doku drum made of the hide of a white christian baby to conjure up demons for human sacrifice. Using three fingers they beat...

    "I Gave It Up for Lent"Harry R. OsborneA few years ago about this time of year, a story appeared in the newspaper about a strange occurrence in France. It seems that a thief cornered a man in a dark place. He threatened to slash the man's throat with his knife unless he handed over his money. As the Victim reached for his wallet, the light caught him in such a way that the thief saw his victim was a priest. The robber quickly apologized for his behavior explaining that he was unaware of the fact that he had preyed upon...

    Statement on Windsor Report From Nigeria's Primate, Archbishop Peter Akinola: Released on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 I welcome the sincerity and hard work of those who have prepared 'The Windsor Report 2004'. After an initial reading it is clear to me that the report falls far short of the prescription needed for this current crisis. It fails to confront the reality that a small, economically privileged group of people has sought to subvert the Christian faith and impose their new and false doctrine on the wider community of faithful believers. We have watched in sadness as sisters and brothers who...
