  • Pope Francis to Build Showers for Homeless in St. Peter’s Square

    In his latest bid to ease the suffering of the poor — and upend the expectations of the papacy — Pope Francis plans to build showers for the homeless under the sweeping white colonnade of St. Peter’s Square. A homeless man sits close to where the showers are going to be built in St. Peter’s square.

    Christian Post ^ | 07/16/2014 | Morgan Lee
    A recent poll suggests that a majority of Americans believe Jesus would have backed universal healthcare. According to a YouGov survey released earlier in July, 55 percent of respondents believe that Christ would have endorsed the issue. Despite this majority, a slight minority of American Protestants believed that the Jesus they knew would have supported universal healthcare. Only 48 percent of Protestants suggested this, in contrast to the 57 percent of Catholics who argued that their religion's founder would have backed it. Aside from Jesus, 46 percent of Protestants and 55 percent of Catholics themselves backed the policy. In addition...

    Who owns the trademark for “What Would Jesus Do?” Is it a well-known evangelist like Pat Robertson? Is it, perhaps, the producers of that hit miniseries on the Bible? Or is it some religious political organization using it as a slogan to push some sort of agenda? Nope. It’s this guy. Yep, Tyler Perry. Perry obtained the trademark after taking it from Kimberly Kearney (also known as Poprah) after she wasn’t really using it that much.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kearney filed for the trademark for some reality TV show she was working on, but the show never really went...

    Jesus Christ did not believe in tolerance and peace, but the punishment of evil doers and evil people. I never accepted the modern perception of Christianity, as a sort of peace loving religion. Christ Himself said: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. –Matthew 10:34 Christ is “The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” (Psalm 24:8) The Divine Law strikes, and the heretics scatter, like wolves without a head.

    March 3, 2014 (Breakpoint.org) - The call for tolerating same-sex marriage has become a demand for compliance. Cases like Masterpiece Cake Shop in Colorado and Elane Huguenin’s New Mexico photography business have shown us that “tolerance” ends exactly where the right to say “no” begins. And so people, businesses, and non-profits are forced to choose between their livelihoods and their convictions. Some fellow Christians are giving this new state of affairs a thumbs-up, including Kirsten Powers, whose fearless stand against abortion I admire, and Skye Jethani, a friend I respect greatly. They argue that Christians who won’t participate in gay...

    World Net Daily ^ | October 29, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    Giving ‘amnesty’ to illegal immigrants depends upon manipulating gullible voters and elected officials. A major component of the amnesty propaganda campaign is trying to convince churches and Christians that they have to support citizenship for 11 to 20 million people breaking the law in our nation because of their Christian beliefs. Enlisting Church denominations – even those who normally vote conservative – is essential to the amnesty effort. But “Go and sin no more,” was one of Jesus Christ’s most frequent commands. Christian forgiveness never means keeping what you stole. Note the example of Zaccheus, who cries out in Luke...

    Pope Francis said on Saturday it pained him to see priests driving flashy cars, and told them to pick something more "humble". As part of his drive to make the Catholic Church more austere and focus on the poor, Francis told young and trainee priests and nuns from around the world that having the latest smartphone or fashion accessory was not the route to happiness. "It hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the latest model car, you can't do this," he said. "A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose...

    Each Christmas, Christians tell stories about the poor baby Jesus born in a lowly manger because there was no room in the inn. But the Rev. C. Thomas Anderson, senior pastor of the Living Word Bible Church in Mesa, Arizona, preaches a version of the Christmas story that says baby Jesus wasn't so poor after all. Anderson says Jesus couldn't have been poor because he received lucrative gifts -- gold, frankincense and myrrh -- at birth. Jesus had to be wealthy because the Roman soldiers who crucified him gambled for his expensive undergarments. Even Jesus' parents, Mary and Joseph, lived...

But unlike most on the extreme left, Moore attempts to justify his views based on his Christian Catholic religion. Moore asks, “Would Jesus be a capitalist?” He answers that capitalism “is opposite everything that Jesus ... taught” and that all religions are clear about one thing: “It is evil to take the majority of the pie and leave what’s left for everyone to fight over.” (Sadly, he’s ignoring the fact that wealth isn’t a static...

    Health care is in the news — but you have to wonder where all the Christians are.

    Desperate to pass health care, some of the President's supporters are trying to make the claim that Jesus would favor universal health care. For instance, here's how some of his religious supporters framed the issue. It's one thing to underwrite the lethal use of force against the unborn as part of a nationalized health-care system. It takes a certain moxie, though, to persuade oneself that such plans warm the heart of the Almighty. Yet this is how defenders of the president's agenda, including the president himself, like to talk. Passages in the Bible about compassion, justice, and the plight of...

    It has been the aim of the Democrat party since they lost the Presidential election in 2004 to subvert the Christian doctrine with the claim that Jesus was a socialist. Their goal is to convince Christians that their Social agenda is morally equivalent with the teachings and life of Jesus Christ. Considering the lack of historical and Biblical knowledge most Americans have, it is not surprising that many have fallen for the misinformation on what Jesus taught (and for whom the teachings were given). These Biblical revisionists have become especially adept at cherry picking Scripture to suit their agenda. Hence,...

Both, enemies of God's people, raised up by God to punish His people's increasingly sinful ways. Nebuchadnezzar, a world leader and ruler of the ancient Babylonian empire, believed that he could get more cooperation from the people who opposed him ( e.g. those that he conquered) by allowing them to keep their gods (things that they worshipped). He confiscated their land and any riches they possessed. In return, he allowed them to live a...

That was the wild, and patently false, assertion from Barack Obama supporter Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, a guest on Wednesday's The O'Reilly Factor on FNC (8/13/08). [snip] The earliest Christian writings reveal that the earliest followers of Jesus were universally against abortion: -- The Didache ("The Teaching of the Twelve") may be the earliest Christian document not found in the Bible. It has been dated at 50 A.D. It says: "You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery....

    A Chicago-area Roman Catholic priest was charged Friday with stealing from his former North Side parish. Rev. Steven Patte, 64, pleaded not guilty in Cook County Circuit Judge William Lacy's courtroom.... The eight-count indictment charged Patte stole a little more than $12,000 from St. Ita's Parish.... A Chicago police detective who belonged to the parish's finance committee grew suspicious about accounting discrepancies and placed a marked $100 bill in the collection plate, sources familiar with the case said. Later, when the bill disappeared, Patte was confronted and allegedly admitted that he took the money for his personal use, the sources...

    Sorry folks, the Germans basically called BS on BHO wanting NATO support so that he could pass the tax break on to the American People. I got mad at the media (for burying the story) the Great Confluence of Cultures (BHO - neither white,black,Christian,Muslim) and the Germans. The WSJ to be fair, brought this up in their Op/Ed page last night. I'm of the mind to send those plastic/rubber bracelets with: What Would Jesus Do If He Were Barack Obama?

    "You will always have the poor among you..." In those words Jesus stated a simple fact that has held true through the centuries. In every society, no matter how rich and bountiful, there have always been impoverished people. These people evoke our concern and sympathy. We want to help them, but how? No society has ever overcome poverty. In the US today, the question of how to help the poor is particularly controversial, with two partisan sides struggling vigorously to promote their own answers. The liberal camp argues that government is the best entity to help the poor at home...

    In February 2004, U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama's wife, Michelle, sent a fund-raising letter with the "alarming news" that "right-wing politicians" had passed a law stopping doctors from stabbing half-born babies in the neck with scissors, suctioning out their brains and crushing their skulls. Michelle called partial-birth abortion "a legitimate medical procedure," and wouldn't supporters please pay $150 to attend a luncheon for her husband, who would fight against "cynical ploy[s]" to stop it? But that's not why Obama's opponent Alan Keyes said Jesus Christ wouldn't vote for him. Obama recalled Keyes' statement in a recent USA Today opinion piece...

    Beijing - The son of American evangelist Billy Graham said Friday he is opposed to missionary work at this summer's Beijing Olympic Games. Franklin Graham, also an evangelist, was speaking to reporters Friday during a visit to Beijing for meetings with the Communist Party-controlled Protestant church movement. He said he wanted to encourage authorities to resolve conflicts with the church, but would not criticize policies that critics say limit the church's independence and religious rights. While some Christian groups have said they plan to proselytize during the August games, Graham said he was against that because Chinese law does not...

    Would Jesus Christ Celebrate Easter?For millions of people Easter Sunday is the most important religious holiday of the year. But if Jesus walked the dusty roads of Galilee today, would He observe Easter? by Jerold Aust Each spring the excitement of Easter fills the air. Many churches prepare special Easter programs about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At home mothers color eggs, and parents hide the brightly colored symbols of Easter around the house and lawn so that, come Easter morning, their children can excitedly hunt for them. Stuffed Easter bunnies and chocolate rabbits are seen everywhere in...

    If Jesus walked the earth today, he'd drink fair-trade coffee and fill his Blackberry with non-church activities. So says Brian McLaren, author of more than a dozen books on modern Christianity - most recently Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crisis, and a Revolution of Hope. In Everything Must Change, McLaren urges an examination of four critical issues: the environment, poverty, world peace and religious understanding. The book is titled Everything Must Change. Do you mean everything? Are we doing anything right?The laws of gravity and the speed of light are just fine. (laughs) But what I'm saying with "everything" is...

    In an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace, popular televangelist Joel Osteen gave Mitt Romney an endorsement of sorts, addressing the doctrinal issues that many had hoped would be addressed in Romney's "Faith in America" speech. WALLACE: And what about Mitt Romney? And I've got to ask you the question, because it is a question whether it should be or not in this campaign, is a Mormon a true Christian?OSTEEN: Well, in my mind they are. Mitt Romney has said that he believes in Christ as his savior, and that's what I believe, so, you know, I'm not the one...

    This is a video concerning illegal immigration and Christianity. Here's the text of the video: Hello everyone. This is Kenny with keeparkansaslegal. A few days after the majority of Americans celebrate Christmas, the nation will begin the process of deciding the President of the United States in the form of primary elections. Many Presidential Candidates have portrayed themselves as a President with Christian compassion who will also be tough on illegal immigration. But how does a Christian leader deal with illegal immigration? Ignoring the statements by politicians and the opinion of a mostly anti-Christian media, we must first and foremost...
