    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino said Monday during a live television interview that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is a practicing Christian “in his heart.” “I think he worships himself,” Paladino told YNN’s “Capital Tonight” news program. ‘I’m not saying he’s anything else, but I think Mr. Obama is about himself,” the millionaire Buffalo developer said. “I think any religious beliefs that he advocates are part of the theater to make himself look better to the American people.” The comments come as Obama is again countering claims that he is a Muslim. In an interview...

    WASHINGTON – While Americans are bitterly debating the proposed building of a mosque near New York's ground zero, Muslims have been praying for years less than 80 feet from where another hijacked jetliner struck. The Pentagon chapel is part of a memorial to the 184 people killed in 2001 when hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the west side of the Pentagon and plowed through three of the building's five office rings. As part of its massive renovation, the Pentagon opened the nondenominational chapel in November 2002. The chapel hosts a daily prayer group and weekly worship service for...

    At first glance, it would seem like senseless bickering over semantics. But when President Obama recently gave his speech at the memorial service for those killed at Ft. Hood, his choice of words caused serious concern among leaders of many human rights organizations including Jim Jacobson, president of Christian Freedom International, who works tirelessly to serve and call attention to Christians suffering religious persecution around the world. His organization is already fighting an uphill climb to light a fire under the international community regarding the incredibly underestimated volume of Christian persecution of all degrees, from murder in the Middle East,...

    There seems to be a tactic used by many here and elsewhere to mock Sarah Palin as some kind of messiah figure because she has a lot of fans. This is not only wrong, this is disgusting. Sarah Palin has never presented herself as an Obama type figure that wants to be seen as a savior. She has been polite and decent on the national stage. She has treated people around this country very good in her time on the national stage. Yet, some people talk about her as an object or a piece of trash. We have someone around...

    TheCypressTimes.com ^ | 07/24/2010 | Staff
    Since November 2009 President Barack Obama has been using a phrase which cuts at the very heart of the United States Constitution. Instead of speaking of the "FREEDOM OF RELIGION" we enjoy in America, he has been speaking of the "FREEDOM OF WORSHIP," which expresses a complete different concept. "FREEDOM OF WORSHIP" implies that which one does in private and behind closed doors. "FREEDOM OF RELIGION" speaks of the freedom to practice what one believes in public spaces.

    More interesting news out of the Holy See today with July 6, 2010 appointments. Pope Benedict XVI has added to Archbishop Raymond L. Burke's duties. Last October, he was named a member of the Congregation for Bishops, and today, the Holy Father added him as a member of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW). This on top of being the Prefect for the Apostolic Signatura! Anyone who thought he was "promoted out" of the US, is hopefully re-assessing that view. His Excellency is in some very influential positions which will only grow with time.

    For some time now, I’ve been warning you about the various threats to religious freedom. We’ve talked about the gay-rights movement, which insidiously insists that religious believers and organizations bow before the altar of sexual freedom. We’ve talked about the so-called health care reform bill, which does not protect the freedom of conscience of medical practitioners. But now I’m seeing the threat to religious freedom in its most pernicious and dangerous form ever. I speak about this in my latest video commentary [see video embedded in article].

    Words matter. Words often hold great meaning. That is especially true when it comes to the words of our founding documents like the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. Those words are especially cherished. Yet in the past year it appears the Obama administration has been changing one key word in that sacred scroll. Last month the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s 2010 report revealed grave concern about both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejecting the term “freedom of religion” for the term “freedom of worship” in public pronouncements. Why the change when the First Amendment...

    She isn't employed by the show and viewers never see her sparring with Simon Cowell. But Leesa Bellesi exerts her own kind of pull on "American Idol," Fox's top-rated singing contest that has a unique if often-unstated link to Christian churches. Bellesi, who runs a Christian nonprofit in Lake Forest with her ex-pastor husband, visits tapings frequently, has befriended numerous finalists and helps wrangle funds and scout temporary housing for families who trek cross-country to see relatives perform on "Idol." Bellesi said that churches form a base for the young singers as they try to win votes and establish fan...

    If asked how you worship God, how would you answer? Worship is so much more than participating in a part of Saturday or Sunday service. To worship is to adore, to acknowledge, to accept and to abide in the very presence, power and purpose of God. True worship is a lifestyle of welcoming the presence of God, wallowing in the power of God, and wooing the purpose of God. It's easy for most of us to start our week with worship, but then we start to whine during the week when we get whacked and whipped with Satan's worldly whirlwinds....

    Sociologist Christian Smith contends that most religious teens in the U.S. have very little appreciation or regard for the theological and doctrinal particulars of their own religious traditions but did believe that God exists, loves them, wants them to follow the Golden Rule, and comforts them in the midst of the emotional ups and downs of adolescence. Moreover, Smith argued, most teens, including teens who were regular churchgoers, believed that all religious traditions are functionally equivalent, and that they provide spiritual succor, moral guidance, and emotional support in about equal measures. This, then, is Moralistic Therapeutic Deism; and, as Smith...

Probably the most popular false god of modern times would be the "sports god". Think about the way we raise our children to worship this false god. We will spend more time and effort to get them involved and interested in sports then we do in teaching them the Word...

In the heart of Port-au-Prince, in the centre of a city reduced to ruins reminiscent of the very worst warzones, many hundreds of homeless Haitians gathered to thank God and rejoice. Rejoice is precisely the word. So many had died, but they had been spared. God had punished them for their sins, but now they were purified. They held their arms up towards the heavens — swaying, palms outstretched, tears rolling down some of their cheeks — and...

Now that the UN got its ugly bunioned foot in the door of local churches, it didn’t take long until it giddily paraded up the aisles, bearing out the old adage of the proverbial inch ready to gain its inevitable mile.

Since she was sprawled out on her back at the time, it was obvious that Lady Gaga was more than willing to show the way to freedom. In a visually stunning and solidly musical performance that stretched more than 90 minutes, Lady Gaga pretty much justified the hype that surrounded a show relocated just weeks ago from...

Needless to say, she didn't say thank you for the Bible. Nobody else I know does...

He added that, on that day, CIC leaders met with Religious Affairs officials from the Communist Party, including [Religious Affairs] head Caridad Diego, and with prison officials. "It involved an informative meeting," Paz stated. He explained that, prior to the decision, there was "personal-level religious attention", in other words, when a prisoner or his family...

    Prayer is an ongoing dialogue of intimate communion with God.

    American Daily Review ^ | 07/29/09 | Yomin Postelnik and Rev. O'Neal Dozier
    It is true that worship is one of the most fulfilling aspects of an individual’s life as well as an integral part of family living. But real worship must go beyond prayer and recognition. It must be a sincere desire to connect with our Creator. On the simplest level, one wouldn’t greet a member of their favorite sports team and present them with the jersey of an opposing team. One would not go to the White House to ask a favor of a Democratic president and begin their supplication by telling the President what a great Republican they are, or...

    When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor. David said, Mephibosheth!" "Your servant," he replied. 2 Samuel 9:6 This is an interesting little story tucked away in the pages of 2 Samuel. David wanted to show kindness to someone in Jonathan's lineage because he had been good friends with Jonathan, despite his extremely rough relationship with Saul, Jonathan's father. The Scriptures pointed out twice that Jonathan's son Mephibosheth was crippled in both feet. Mephibosheth knew royalty as the grandson of Saul. He had probably lived in the royal palace...

    Worship: Worship Seven Days a Week But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him. --Habakkuk 2:20 So I've got to tell you that if you do not worship God seven days a week, you do not worship Him on one day a week. There is no such thing known in heaven as Sunday worship unless it is accompanied by Monday worship and Tuesday worship and so on.... We come into God's house and say, "The Lord is in His holy temple, let us all kneel before Him." Very nice. I think it's...

    How many people in need of a message of comfort during tough times turn to the book of Habakkuk? I am perhaps less spiritual than most for I do not think immediately of this wonderful book. For starters a man with a weird name wrote it and secondly it is in a weird section of the Bible. By this I mean that every person that has tried and failed to read the Bible through, a wonderful thing we should all strive to do multiple times a year in my opinion, has failed somewhere between the begats and Numbers. The general...
