    The Citizens Voice (Wilkes-Barre PA), p. A1 ^ | March 17, 2019 | Bill Wellock

The reader also asked how to report a violation, if in fact there was one...

    A Southern historian described President Trump signing the Bible during his visit to tornado-torn Alabama as “right next to sacrilege.” “I’d never sign someone else’s Bible,” Wayne Flynt, an Auburn University professor emeritus told “That’s right next to sacrilege. That’s a holy book.” Joe Biden’s former chief of staff, Ron Klain, also criticized the president.
  • Stop Taking Jeremiah 29:11 Out of Context!

    Why do we misinterpret this verse? “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” My Old Testament professor had this to say about the ever-popular Jeremiah 29:11: “I am going to destroy what this verse means to you, but then I’m going to reframe it so you understand it better within its original context, and then you will love it, even more, when we’re done.” He definitely had our attention! We often approach Jeremiah 29:11 as a security...

  • Are walls 'an immorality?' Not according to the Bible

    We Americans now disagree over the construction of a border wall to be placed between the United States and Mexico. In the first week of her Speakership, Nancy Pelosi declared that such a wall would be “an immorality.” She does not appear to be alone in that assessment. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) compared such a wall to the Berlin Wall while calling it a “moral abomination.” Like any human instrument, a wall can serve good or evil purposes. For example, the Berlin Wall was an evil device constructed by a malevolent political system, Representative Ocasio-Cortez got that right at least....

    1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God...

    Dear Chuck,In his State of the Union Address, President Trump declared that “America will never be a socialist nation.” Some say the Bible supports socialism. Does the Bible support it or any other specific economic system?Unsocial Dear Unsocial,I’m glad you asked, because I fear many people are supporting an economic philosophy they really don’t understand. To many, it sounds good on the surface, maybe even compassionate and fair, a way to close the income inequalities that exist. In reality, it is none of those. Remember, Robin Hood is a fairy tale. It should never be attempted as an economic system...

    Immigration and border control issues dominate our news and divide our nation, but God’s not divided nor is He confused on this or any issue—and we should not be either. In fact, there are clear, biblical principles on why no one should be confused about God’s position on immigration and borders. Let’s look at borders first. In Acts 17:26, Paul says that God established nations and borders. Daniel 2 says He raises up leaders and nations, and He puts them down. Without borders there’s no order, no law, no justice. Without borders, God’s promise to bless the nation whose God...

Charles Pope • February 18, 2019 • Adam and Eve – Johann Wenzel PeterOriginal sin is that first sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, committed when they ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen 3:1-7). While it clearly involved them both, Scripture and Tradition refer to it formally as the “Sin of Adam” or “Adam’s Sin,” not the “Sin of Adam and Eve.” It is also described as coming to...

    In a teaching as clear and fresh as the blue Sea of Galilee, Jesus said this is how you should pray:“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:9–13). This prayer is a clear, straightforward pattern for developing a God-filled life. Jesus did not say, “Pray this.” He said, “This is how you should pray.”...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) — The declaration signed by Pope Francis and Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar, during the pope’s trip to the United Arab Emirates “is a clarion call for robust dialogue that leads to peace,” said the Catholic chairman of the National Catholic-Muslim Dialogue and the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. “In our increasingly hostile world in which violence too often predominates between Christians and Muslims — violence that has led to tragic consequences for the most vulnerable humans — we welcome with great joy this historic joint statement on human...

    One block from Independence Hall, where the Founding Fathers met to form a new nation, the American Bible Society is making a case for the Good Book’s place in American history. The messages in scripture about freedom, truth, and fairness were so ingrained in the culture of the new republic that Christian principles must have influenced the documents that form its foundation, the Bible society’s officials argue. For them, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bible are inextricably intertwined.

    DUBAI - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards inaugurated a surface-to-surface ballistic missile with a range of 1,000 km (621 miles), the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Thursday, ignoring demands Western demands that Tehran halt its missile program. Fars published pictures of an underground missile factory called “underground city”, saying the “Dezful” missile was a version of the Zolfaghar missile that has a 700 km range and a 450 kg (992 lb) warhead. Iran says it has missiles with the range of up to 2,000 km, which puts Israel and U.S. military bases in the region within reach. The EU has stepped...

    A biblical scholar has suggested that due to an unfortunate mistranslation in the Bible, God did not create Eve from Adam’s rib but rather from his penis. Needless to say, several historical purists are up in – arms. Professor Ziony Zevit from the American Jewish University in Maryland has proposed his theory in a new book, “What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden.” According to Zevit, the Hebrew word ‘tsela’ in the Old Testament does not translate as ‘rib.’ Rather, Zevit believes that ‘tsela’ means a limb sticking out sideways from an upright human body, and contextually translates this...
