    Do you tend to avoid studying books of the Bible like Revelation and Ezekiel? Does it feel like words such as rapture and apocalypse fly right over your head? It’s common to dismiss these and other topics related to Bible prophecy as irrelevant or too complicated.Bible Gateway interviewed Todd Hampson (@thampson) about his book, The Non-Prophet’s Guide™ to the End Times: Bible Prophecy for Everyone (Harvest House Publishers, 2018).Explain the title of the book and its format.Todd Hampson: The Non-Prophet’s Guide™ to the End Times features a comical character known as the Non-Prophet.

  • Google Approves App For Muslims To Report People Who Commit Blasphemy

    12/09/2018 7:40:07 PM PST · by MNDude · 43 replies
    A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam. No, this is not a joke. The app, Smart Pakem, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold misguided beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.
  • Foreign-Born Population of the United States, Percent by State, as of 2010

    The foreign born population of the United States is at near record levels of over 14 percent, as of 2018. The last time this happened, the U.S. shut down immigration for 40 years and assimilated the immigrants. It is less clear that will happen this time. The big wave of immigration ending about 1920, was part of how Progressivism took over as the dominant ideology in the United States. The current wave of immigration, began in 1965, is part of how Progressivism is pushing out the remnants of Constitutional ideology today. President Donald Trump is part of a desperate...
  • When will liberals give Melania Trump the credit she deserves?

    The Hill ^ | December 3, 2018 | Madison Gesiotto
    In the year of the woman, First Lady Melania Trump is the greatest of them all. While the media is busy salivating over Hollywood actresses and radical female Democrats, it is Melania Trump who deserves recognition for everything she has done for women and children in the last two years. The mainstream media loves to portray Republicans as aggressive upholders of the patriarchy who seek to quash the cause of gender equality. Yet the ostensible feminists on the left often bully and intimidate strong conservative women, attacking them for their beliefs and values. This is why I was not surprised...

  • Are Americans Who Admire Socialism and Communism Miseducated or Stupid?

    Black Community News ^ | 12/4/18 | Walter Williams
    A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country. Only 42 percent prefer the latter (http://tinyurl.com/ybsejy3f). Twenty-five percent of millennials who know who Vladimir Lenin was view him favorably. Lenin was the first premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Half of millennials have never heard of Communist Mao Zedong, who ruled China from 1949 to 1959 and was responsible for the deaths of 45 million Chinese people. The number of people who died at the hands of Josef...

    Stick a fork in Mueller - 'cause he's done. Stick a fork in all of us - 'cause we're all totally done - and STUFFED!. We should all brace ourselves for the coming unveiling of the Frankenstein that has morphed out of what is clearly now Robert Muellers Collusion-gate. Approaching $20 million and two years in the making, the ongoing and now deafening drum roll for that debut is ever-fluctuating between ... what now? and Enough already! The occasional estimated arrival announcements of this shuck have worn everybody out. In its completely stupid and desperate beginning, a cocky Barack stepped...

    Objective journalism in Canadas mainstream media is effectively dead Its no secret Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under heavy criticism lately. His popularity began to tank when he went on his disastrous trip to India and, with his constant wardrobe changes, showed the entire world what a fool he is. Will he and the Liberals win the next election scheduled to be held in October of next year? Lorne Gunter, writing an opinion piece in the Sun newspaper, thinks he will.

    Another education bureaucracy abuse of power was demonstrated at the Manchester Elementary School in Omaha, Nebraska where principal Jennifer Sinclair announced a ban on candy canes. According to her, the letter j shape of the candy cane is an insidious attempt to inject religion into the school environment. Everyone knows that the j stands for Jesus. We simply cannot permit such an egregious insult to all the non-Christian students at our school. Candy canes arent the only items on the Principals forbidden list. Other banned items and activities include: Santas, elves, Christmas music, Christmas books, making an ornament to hang...

    Today is Raj’s birthday, and that means only one thing around here: there will be cake. At one time that meant Mom’s Mystery Cake, which was about as simple as a homemade dessert could get and delicious when served with copious amounts of whipped cream. There are many more complicated variations of “fruit cocktail cake” out there but if yours looks more like a traditional cake with identifiable chunks of fruit in it you’re not doing it right. It should be more of an amalgamated pudding like creature. Mom’s Mystery CakeIngredients     1 (16 ounce) can fruit cocktail in heavy...

    Another French aristocrat ignores the middle class. Will he survive? Global warming is the biggest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. John Coleman, meteorologist and founder of The Weather Channel Paris is experiencing major riots they havent seen in fifty years. Protesters say this is the start of a revolution which will eclipse the rioting that occurred in 1968 when France was near civil war. Citizens are protesting a gas tax increase designed to discourage the purchase of vehicles that contribute to climate change. Diesel, the most popular fuel in France is currently $6.35...

    If viewers want to see a host engaged in Trump bashing, there are dozens of other outlets they can watch Any American who follows the news coverage of President Trump knows that the mainstream media is completely opposed to him. Their coverage of his administration is biased, relentlessly negative and needlessly nasty. These haters could not even take a break from their Trump bashing during the funeral of former President George H. W. Bush. Liberal activists, masquerading as journalists on MSNBC and CNN, criticized the President for such trivia as folding his arms during the service and not singing from...

    Reflections on the anniversary of the first ratification conventions conclusion On December 7, 1787, at Elizabeth Battel's Golden Fleece Tavern in Dover, Delaware, the state of Delaware became the first state to ratify the new Constitution of the United States, and did so by a unanimous vote of thirty to zero. With such an auspicious beginning, we might think that national ratification would be a foregone conclusion, but ... no such luck. As easy a decision as it was for some states, it was a very difficult one for others. We think there are huge differences between the states today...

    The Way of Repentance (Luke 3:1-14) In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the Baptist in the wilderness. And every year, in the month of December, during the season of Advent, the word of God comes to us through John here in church. Yes, every year at this time, on the second Sunday in Advent, we always have a Gospel reading in which John the Baptist preaches Gods word to us. And what is he preaching? Our text tells us: John went...

The German leader slammed the rejection of open borders and globalism, and poured scorn on the patriotic movement currently sweeping across Europe, the U.S, Brazil, Australia and other parts of the world.

    Many thanks to those on FR who responded to my prayer request from last week. As promised, here is an update. John has had serious heart issues for many years. He had a heart attack in his late 40s and has since had stents placed. Recently, he has experienced new chest pain. He underwent an elective heart cath last week which shows he needs a four way cardiac bypass. His surgery will be done either this weekend but no later than Monday. This means he has serious coronary artery disease but he is in one of the better medical centers...
