    Today we reach the high point of our Easter celebration, the Feast of Pentecost.

This is where the different tribes of Israel entered into covenant with God and with one another and so became the people of God. Being a people of God means relating to God and to one another in a way that God Himself has mapped out...Whenever human beings try to take the initiative in our dealings with God, what...

    Today in history, on May 29, 1453, the sword of Islam conquered Constantinople. Of all Islam's conquests of Christian territory, this was by far the most symbolically significant. Not only was Constantinople a living and direct extension of the old Roman Empire and contemporary capital of the Christian Roman Empire (or Byzantium), but its cyclopean walls had prevented Islam from entering Europe through its eastern doorway for the previous seven centuries, beginning with the First Arab Siege of Constantinople (674678). Indeed, as Byzantine historian John Julius Norwich puts it, "[h]ad the Saracens captured Constantinople in the seventh century rather than...

    When President Donald Trump arrived in Jerusalem for Israels 50th anniversary, Friends of Zion had billboards erected around the city declaring, Trump, Make Israel Great and Trump is a Friend of Zion. Little did anyone realize how much this president would do for Israel. Not only did he recognize Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, but he also shut down the PLO office in Washington, stopped the funding of the PA through the Taylor Force Act, and closed the consul in Jerusalem. He has now removed the anti-Israel declaration calling Judea and Samaria Bible lands settlements, with the announcement from the...

    Governors and mayors across the nation have claimed that their emergency powers allow them to ban large groups during the coronavirus pandemic. They don't want groups gathering in malls, movie theaters or even churches, despite the constitutional protection of religious rights. Now one official is moving into extreme territory, demanding churches provide him with the names, addresses and telephone numbers of anyone who shows up to worship. The move by Quinton Lucas, the mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, already is attracting the attention of Liberty Counsel, which has been defending churches amid the coronavirus lockdowns.

    Last Friday, April 24, marked the Great Crime, that is, the genocide of Christiansprimarily Armenians Assyrians and Greeksthat took place under the Islamic Ottoman Empire, throughout World War I. Then, in an attempt to wipe out as many Christians as possible, the Turks massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians, 300,000 Assyrians, and 750,000 Greeks. Most objective American historians who have studied the question unequivocally agree that it was a deliberate, calculated genocide: More than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution, starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse.

    Kansans can be punished for going to church this week because of the coronavirus, but abortion facilities in the state continue to jeopardize lives by killing unborn babies. The Kansas Supreme Court quickly handed down a ruling Saturday allowing Gov. Laura Kelly, a pro-abortion Democrat, to ban church services and punish those who refuse to comply. Allowed to stand barely 24 hours before Easter Sunday, Kellys executive order bans religious services of more than 10 people. It also allows religious leaders and their congregants to be punished with fines of up to $2,500 and 12 months in jail for violations....

    GREENVILLE, Mississippi, April 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― After a warning from the Department of Justice, the mayor who fined Christians $500 for attending drive-in church services has reversed his ban on the practice.

In the wake of the controversy, Simmons first waived the $500 fine on Easter Monday. Now he has also rescinded his April 7 order banning any kind of church service, including...

Now, Phillis is facing a similar lawsuit for refusing to bake a trans-themed cake in 2017. Autumn Scardina, the...
