    CLEVELAND - The Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is “greening.” So are the dioceses of Stockton, California; Joliet, Illinois; and others across the United States. Participants in diocesan environmental ministries credit Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, on Care for Our Common Home, for raising awareness and motivating Catholics and others to act in countless ways to protect creation. “The pope’s encyclical lays out the scene very well and is something we can have an impact with,” said John Mundell, an environmental consultant and a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Indianapolis, who is a leader...

    Dear friends, If this world and America's fifth column constitutional apostates absolutely despise President Trump because he stands in the way of global socialistic fascism via "climate change" and globalism; what then after the Rapture of the body of Christ when the Two Witnesses of Revelation arrive (Rev. 11:1-7)? Remember the Kathy Griffin beheading of President Trump which brought cheers of jubilant joy from far-leftist radicals in Hollywood, the drive-by media, college professors, and students across this nation. Dear friends, I have NEVER seen such a united national and global push against one man in my life via lawless politicians...

  • 5 reasons why your church members disagree on when to reopen

    Christian Post ^ | 05/27/2020 | Thom S. Rainer
    It has become a common theme at Church Answers. We are hearing from pastors and other church leaders about members who have divergent opinions on the timing for regathering the in-person services. No surprise here. It might be helpful, however, to understand the reasons behind the disagreements. We see five major themes. Strong extroverts and strong introverts will have major disagreements on timing. The reason is obvious. The extrovert is dying to resume interaction with fellow church members. He or she thrives on in-person gatherings and conversations. The strong introvert, however, has done well seeing few people and interacting with...

    A reader recently e-mailed me Hal Lindsey’s quote, “The coming of the Lord is at hand” (James 5:8). This great prophecy teacher pointed out that “at hand” does not mean that the Rapture would happen in the next few years (although it could have). “At hand” means the Rapture will happen at any time and without warning. “At hand” is an admonition for everyone in every generation to be ready to go at any moment, all the time. There is a lot of misunderstanding about this issue. God told Adam if he ate of the fruit of the tree of...

    [Gag Alert] In the Year of “Laudato Si’” It’s Party Time for Everyone, Except for “My Lord” In these times of global shortages, those who hold the purse strings in the Vatican - the Jesuit Juan Antonio Guerrero Alves and Cardinal Reinhard Marx, prefects respectively of the secretariat for the economy and of the council for the economy - have issued urgent calls to the heads of the curia to be “sober” and to “cut the costs of conferences, travel abroad, external consultancy.”But the celebrations for “Laudato Si’” are evidently an exception. Yesterday, Sunday May 24, the fifth birthday of...

    LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Diocese of Las Vegas said Friday that, despite President Trump’s deeming churches essential earlier in the day, it will follow the guidance of the Diocesan Restoration Council and keep churches closed. Bishop of the diocese George Leo Thomas, Ph.D., said that he’s pleased that houses of worship are considered essential by the federal government, parishes will only reopen when the council deems it appropriate. The council, which was established by the bishop, has met several times while the diocese remains on a discontinuance order until May 31. It is still working to set up protocols...

    As the coronavirus swept across China in early 2020, several news outlets posted stories about the Chinese government laundering money – not in a traditional sense, but in a literal sense. With so many people touching paper currency, China cleaned and disinfected vast amounts. In other parts of the world, where governments haven’t taken similar measures, many are making a personal choice to avoid paper currency because they’re afraid of contracting the coronavirus. This fear of virus-tainted paper money is only the latest event driving the world toward an all-digital financial system. In late March, as state lockdowns led to...

    I just participated in my first Lord’s Supper via a streaming service. My pastor asked us to have juice and bread ready in our homes. I served my wife, and then I served myself as our pastor prayed and read Scripture regarding the Supper. It was different, but it was meaningful. To be clear, I know different churches handle this ordinance differently. Some call it by another name such as Communion. Some have a common cup. Some have different theological understandings of its purpose and meaning. Many churches in my tradition have very small cups of juice on a plate...

    The Revelation details how the world in the end times will be deceived by BIG PHARMA and vaccines. What is happening worldwide with COVID-19 is no accident. Evil men with a globalist totalitarian agenda have done this. One of them is probably the antichrist, or the antichrist is just about to appear on the scene. It seems so easy to figure out, now that a little more of the enemy's hand has been revealed. All one needs to do is follow the headlines and do a word study of the original Greek in passages of the Revelation that mention sorcery,...

    Dear friends, do you have ears to hear during this time of isolation and confinement under the Coronavirus (Isa. 55:7; 59:7-8; 65:2, Matt. 13; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20)? Almighty God is seeking to get us to slow way down and listen to His still small voice, which is found in His Holy Word (Acts 17:24-31; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20). We as a nation and world have been moving at EXPONENTIAL speeds - socially and culturally - via the tech world and abandoning and exchanging TRUTH and RIGHTNESS for lawlessness at the same EXPONENTIAL speeds (Gen. 6; Isa. 5:20, Rom. 1:18-32,...

    One, I want to start by offering my opinion on something. It is my opinion that the U.S. will be part of the North American Union (NAU; now called the USMCA; the NAFTA replacement agreement that is now scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2020). This will make the U.S. one of several regional groups of nations, each region will ultimately have a leader, there will eventually be 10 regions and leaders, and the 10 leaders will ultimately be known as the Ten Kings and dominated by the EU. There seems to be no question that the U.S....

    With each passing day, it becomes clearer and plainer to those of us who are bible believers that we are living in a very unique time period. So unique, in fact, that we just might be witnessing the kingdom of Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast system being assembled before our very eyes. Please note that I use the word ‘might’ out of an overabundance of caution when writing articles like these, but when I am alone with my thoughts I am completely convinced that is exactly where we are. 100%. The wise shall understand. Ever hear of Luciferase?...

One of the things that I have been taught from the very beginning in helping children, adults and people in general how to learn a particular biblical truth is to use what they mentally know by experience or association. I have found by using what people know that it is easy...
