Several months ago, in an introductory sermon to the book of Acts, I made some observations about the culture in which early Christians lived: It was brutal, totally pagan, and openly anti-Christian. There was no affirmation of morality or any sort of cultural Christianity. Early believers were aliens to everything in society. Whats more, Christians had no governmental advocacy or special protections, and so unrestrained persecution was happening all over the place. Proclaimers of the gospel essentially became martyrs. To embrace Christ often meant signing ones own death warrant. What was the church doing that caused such resentment, hostile treatment, and persecution? ...
Sodom: Has Biblical City Of Sin Been Found?
Post Date: 2015-10-17 15:16:37 by redleghunter
The location of the original city of sin, Sodom - destroyed by fire and brimstone according to the Bible - may have been discovered in Jordan. Archaeologists excavating the Tall el Hammam site say it was a major Bronze Age city-state and matches "every Sodom criterion". Steven Collins and his team have been at the "monstrous" site since 2005 and have discovered palace structures, towers and formidable defences. Sodom and the neighbouring city of Gomorrah were destroyed by God, according to the Book of Genesis, because their inhabitants were riddled by sin and depravity. The final judgement was delivered after angels, disguised as men, were unable to find just 10 ...
Archbishop Cupich lays out pathway for gay couples to receive Communion at Vatican press scrum
Post Date: 2015-10-16 15:06:16 by redleghunter
ROME, October 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Archbishop Blase Cupich of Chicago who is participating in the Synod of the Family at Pope Francis personal invitation said at a press scrum in the Vatican press office this afternoon that the conscience is "inviolable" and that he believes divorced and remarried couples could be permitted to receive the sacraments, if they have "come to a decision" to do so "in good conscience" - theological reasoning that he indicated in response to a follow-up question would also apply to gay couples. During the lengthy press briefing, the archbishop also spoke approvingly of the so-called "Kasper ...

The Economics of God (Continued)
Post Date: 2015-09-26 21:51:57 by Vicomte13
Elsewhere, we have been discussing economics and taxation. Poverty relief is one of our duties as Christians. It is disheartening to read on so many threads the most vicious contempt leveled at the poor. That is to be expected of pagans and seculars, but Christians should know better. Sometimes we forget ourselves, but this thread has been revived to remind us that poverty relief was the purpose of the largest of the taxes God imposed on ancient Israel, and it is a commandment to Christians from Jesus Christ. Seculars will always be hateful towards anything that costs money and does not seem to benefit them, but they love and serve money, not God. Christians should be reminded of ...
Was Ben Carson Wrong To Say “No” To A Muslim President?
Post Date: 2015-09-25 09:13:39 by nativist nationalist
Beliefs matter. Ideas Have Consequences, as conservative scholar Richard Weaver wrote in his classic of that title in 1948. Yet, for so believing, and so saying, Dr. Ben Carson has been subjected to a Rodney King-style night-sticking by the P.C. police. Asked by Chuck Todd on Meet the Press whether he could support a Muslim for president, Carson replied, I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that. Carson was not out of the studio before the airwaves were filled with denunciations. Nihad Awad, [Send him mail] executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said CAIR is ...
Is the Pope a False Prophet?
Post Date: 2015-09-24 16:22:44 by hondo68
Congressman Thomas Massie, R-Ky., has invited me to the House of Representatives to watch Pope Francis address a joint session of Congress. This generous Methodist congressman has invited your traditionalist Roman Catholic columnist and cable TV guy to this grand event. I am going with joy because the pope is the Vicar of Christ on Earth, and his presence in Congress is historically unique. But within me is fear and trembling over what he might say. The papacy is an office created personally by Our Lord. Its occupants are direct descendants of St. Peter. Its role and authorities have evolved over the centuries, but the core of its responsibilities has always been the preservation of ...
A Solution For The Same-Sex Marriage Problem
Post Date: 2015-09-24 13:38:07 by hondo68
Right now, the liberty movement is divided almost in half between those favoring the SCOTUS ruling legalizing same-sex marriage and those opposed (count me in the opposed camp). So, right now, the liberty movement is completely stymied over this issue. The only ones who win in such a case are big-government Orwellians. To be sure, the SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex marriage was the result of decades of relentless propaganda from the national news media, liberal politicians, and college professors throughout America. Think about it: what do Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor know that John Locke, Thomas More, Emer de ...

Carly Fiorina has supplied yet another reason she should not get anywhere near the White House. Forget about her supporting the DREAM Act, although thats bad enough. She thinks a Muslim should be president. Responding to Ben Carsons belief that Muslim should not be president, Fiorina explained where Carson erred to Jimmy Fallon: Jimmy Fallon: Ben Carson is in a lot of trouble now because he is saying that he would not advocate a Muslim being president. Carly Fiorina: Well, I think thats wrong. It says in our Constitution that religion cannot be a test for office. Its also true that this country was founded on the principle that we judge each individual and that ...
Come Again? NYT Headline: 'In Pelosi, Strong Catholic Faith and Abortion Rights Coexist'
Post Date: 2015-09-22 14:23:10 by redleghunter
The New York Times' Jennifer Steinhauer celebrated the faith of the fiercely pro-abortion former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California on Wednesday, under a laugher of a headline, "At Divisive Moment, Pelosis Faith Coexists With Belief in Abortion Rights." The online headline was even "stronger" in silliness: "In Pelosi, Strong Catholic Faith and Abortion Rights Coexist." Steinhauer strove mightily to portray left-wing pro-choice, pro-gay marriage Pelosi as an unconflicted Catholic, despite her position on abortion, considered a mortal sin by the Church but which Pelosi sees as "ancillary to her unwavering faith," according to the ...
Left Turns On Bill Maher And Richard Dawkins For Noticing Problems With #IStandWithAhmed

As we saw when Swedish leftists angrily denounced a gay pride parade because it might provoke Muslims, so-called progressives dont really believe in their own causes. Its just something that is used to attack people they dont like, usually White Christians. Politics is about who, not what. The #IStandWithAhmed fable wasnt about overzealous school officials or law enforcement. If that had been the focus of the story, people would have brought up all the white kids who keep getting suspended for doing things like making a gun out of a pop tart or wearing an American flag shirt. Instead, it was about engaging in a Two Minutes Hate against ...
US and Catholicism in Crisis

Pope Francis shakes hands with Fidel Castro. During the 1950s, the twin pillars of worldwide anti-communism were Dwight Eisenhowers America and the Roman Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII. During the 1980s, the last decade of the Cold War, Ronald Reagan and the Polish pope, John Paul II, were the pillars of resistance. When Pope Francis arrives in Washington on Tuesday afternoon, the country he enters will be a very different one from Eisenhowers America or Reagans America. And Catholics will be welcoming a new kind of pope. In America 2015, homosexuality, abortion on demand and same-sex marriage shameful crimes in Ikes America, mortal sins in the catechism ...

www.vox.com Ben Carson's bizarre comments about Muslims and the Constitution, explained It shouldn't have been a hard question. On Sunday's Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Ben Carson, "Should a Presidents faith matter?" Carson's answer was comfortingly banal. "Well, I guess it depends on what that faith is," he replied. "If its inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem." But Todd had a follow-up. "So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?" And then Carson ...

Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House BY JONATHAN EASLEY Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, telling The Hill in an interview on Sunday that whoever takes the White House should be sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.

The first question to Mr. Trump at a town hall rally in Rochester, N.H., came from a man who asserted, Weve got a problem in this country, its called Muslims. We know the president is one.

Hillary Clinton showed up for church today. Will faith help or hurt her on the campaign?
Post Date: 2015-09-13 15:45:54 by buckeroo
Speaking from a Methodist pulpit on Sunday morning, Hillary Clinton explained her political vision with a reference to the classic Sunday school song This Little Light of Mine. Too many people, she said, want to let their light shine, but they cant get out from under that bushel basket. It is way too heavy to lift alone. And thats where the community comes in. It is the 200th anniversary of Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, where the Clintons worshiped regularly when Bill Clinton was president. Hillary Clinton spoke during the bicentennial celebration Sunday about how her faith and faith community have shaped her. She spoke of ...
Christian colleges demand 'basic Christian teachings'
Post Date: 2015-09-11 11:06:22 by redleghunter
Several colleges and universities are threatening to resign from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities if two other members are not held accountable for their same-sex policies. The Council has promised to address the issue of Eastern Mennonite University and Goshen College, which are hiring faculty and staff involved in same-sex marriages. Mark Tooley of the Institute on Religion and Democracy says some members want something done soon because they expect the Council to "uphold basic Christian teachings." Oklahoma Wesleyan University has dropped its membership in the Council, citing a lack of action by the CCCU. "CCCU's ambivalence in deciding the ...

Ive spent a lot of time in dialogue with activist atheists recently, and the direction we are going is not pretty. We are witnessing a rapid cultural decline into amorality. Satan seeks the ruin of souls through the destruction of marriage and family, and the quickest route to his goal is the profanation of sex. The truth and meaning of human sexuality is our eras cultural fault line, and unfortunately, Protestant denominations have been tumbling into its widening crevasse at ...

Kim Davis: The Guts of a Convert

Kim Davis may not have a legal leg to stand on (see here, and here). But I think some Christians are moving too quickly to critique her situation on a purely legal basis. We are Christians first, before we are Americans. So before we start talking about whether this is a good religious liberty case, or not, before we start distancing our educated selves from her simple faith, and before we take to the internet to show the liberal gestapo that we really are for the rule of law and that Kim Davis is a simpleton of a Christian who should have resigned before embarrassing us Christianslet's just step back from this fog and think with a faithful mind.

Did Muhammad Perform Miracles?
Post Date: 2015-09-08 15:02:46 by redleghunter
On Thursday, August 27, 2015, the first part of Irans most expensive movie trilogy, Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, opened nationwide in Iran. It took more than eighty months for this movie to be completed. Its primary goal, according to its director Majid Majidi, is to reclaim the rightful image of Islam, which he said extremists have distorted. The Iranian state has partly funded the film, most likely in an attempt to promote a Shiite understanding of the narrative of Muhammads life. This, of course, triggered controversy among Sunni Muslims. Al-Azhar University demanded that Iran refrain from releasing the movie, so that an undistorted image ...
Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere. Why Can't We Be Honest About It?
Post Date: 2015-09-02 22:47:04 by Justified
The notorious Sydney gang rapes in 2000 were committed by Lebanese Australians. Muslim men raped women and girls as young as 14. Australia, being a sensible sort of place, identified that the rapists were targeting white girls and branded these monstrous acts racially-motivated hate crimes. Because thats what they looked like: one ethnicity was specifically targeting another. The Australian girls were vulnerable, and they were abused by Middle Eastern men who considered them trash. Had these men been at home, they would have raped their own, but in another country, women from outside their own community were preferable victims. Elsewhere in ...

Last year, the New York Times Magazine published an article pondering whether the Libertarian Moment has come at last. Five months before that, Pew reported that 50 percent of millennials identify as political independents. The same report also found that 51 percent of millennials favor gay marriage and 29 percent are religiously unaffiliated, dovetailing with other common libertarian views. Libertarians are quickly becoming more prolific, at the very least in their cultural impact if not in absolute numbers. Living in D.C.s periphery, I cant help but notice it. At a party over the summer, a friend and I were chatting when a young woman came up and joined the ...
Pope tells priests to pardon women who have abortions [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-09-01 08:17:04 by cranky
Pope Francis on Tuesday called on priests to pardon women who have abortions, and the doctors who perform them, during the upcoming Jubilee year -- overruling hardline traditionalists within the Catholic Church. "I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it," he said. In a message outlining special measures for the Jubilee, Francis said he knew that while "the tragedy of abortion is experienced by some with a superficial awareness... many others... believe that they have no other ...
