Jesuit Superior: Jesus Was Not ‘Black and White’ on Man/Woman Marriage
Post Date: 2017-04-06 08:57:30 by cranky
The new superior of the worldwide Jesuit religious order said recently that, as Jesus Christs words about marriage were never recorded, there is no basis for a black and white church doctrine centering on lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. In a recent interview with Vatican journalist Giuseppe Rusconi of the Italian Catholic blog Rossoporpora, Father Arturo Sosa Abascal states that Jesuss words about marriage must be contextualized and discerned. Human reality is much more nuanced and never black and white, said Abascal, who was elected superior of the Society of Jesus in October. LifeSiteNews has ...

Merry Christmas! Santa Claus was wrong. Today is the actual day Jesus was born. On this day in 4 BC, a bright Venus (the Star in the East) appeared over Bethlehem at high noon. As the Wise Men expected, it was right on time, exactly 4000 years after Adam (the first modern (civilized) man appeared in Mesopotamia, also called the Garden of Eden--as both the Bible and all archeologists and historians say. Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Dispensational View of the Genesis creation saga is correct, March 27th, 4 BC marks the beginning of DAY 5 of the reign of man on Earth. We are in Day 7, marked by the drying up of the Euphrates at its beginning as prophesied. After today--which ...
It’s Time We Stopped Calling Donald Trump a Christian
Post Date: 2017-02-04 11:49:44 by Willie Green
Enough is enough. Even in the early days of the Presidential campaign it was a ludicrous idea: that Donald Trump was now a Christian; that hed miraculously found Jesus right at the time he needed to pull in millions of Evangelical voters. Never mind that his life showed an open contempt for most of the things the Jesus of the Gospels lived and preached: humility, generosity, respect, empathy, kindness, peace. The high profile-evangelists in his corner assured their rightly alarmed flocks, that behind the scenes Donnie was changed man, a baby Christian whod now seen the light and was making his way down the narrow road of faith to lead us all to the ...
Is the Virgin Birth Essential to Christianity?
Post Date: 2017-01-10 23:21:00 by A K A Stone
Most of us are familiar with the narrative of Jesus birth: the angel who appears to Mary, the virgin conception, the babe in a manger in Bethlehem, the visit from the shepherds, and the gifts of the Magi. But do these events really matter to Christianity? Does It Matter How Jesus Came into the World? In a December 4, 2016, sermon, Pastor Andy Stanley, of North Point Community Church, introduced his sermon series Who Needs Christmas? with the following statement: One of the challenging things about the Christmas season, and one of the challenging things about the Christmas story, is in fact the Christmas story . . . as it relates to the birth of Jesus. Because theres so much ...
What We Celebrate at Christmas
Post Date: 2016-12-24 15:45:15 by redleghunter
What we celebrate at Christmas is not so much the birth of a baby, as important as that is, but whats so significant about the birth of that particular baby is that in this birth we have the incarnation of God Himself. An incarnation means a coming in the flesh. We know how John begins His gospel, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. So in that very complicated introductory statement, he distinguishes between the Word and God, and then in the next breath identifies the two, The Word was with God, and the Word was God. And then at the end of the prologue, he says, And the Word became flesh and dwelt among ...
Christian Leaders Persecuting “The Shack” Director For Depicting God As “Fat Black Woman”: “God’s Supposed To Be Smart”
Post Date: 2016-12-21 09:56:25 by Willie Green
Christian leaders are warning followers of the faith to steer clear of the upcoming Christian fiction flick The Shack, arguing if the film follows a faithful portrayal of author Willam P. Youngs book, it will smear the evangelical understanding of the Bible. If the film is a faithful portrayal of the events and the theology of the book, then every Christian should be gravely alarmed at the further advance of beliefs that smear the evangelical understanding of the truth of the Bible, Christian author James B. DeYoung, an acquaintance of the books author, told Christian News Network. Bottom line, God is most certainly not a fat, black ...

No Room for an Inn
Post Date: 2016-12-18 22:01:54 by A K A Stone
You probably recognize this scene: Bethlehem (around 2,000 years ago): Joseph and Mary arrive at the sleepy town in the middle of the night. Mary, already in labor, remains on the donkey while Joseph frantically searches for a room at the local inns. Desperate, he begs one reluctant innkeeper for any place at all to have this baby. The innkeeper finally relents and makes room for them in a tumbledown stable with the cows. Theres just one problem. This isnt what the Bible teaches. The true history has gotten choked out by myth. Stories, plays, and movies have dramatized the event for the sake of entertainment, but the real birth account is a bit different. Heres what Luke ...

Where Did Satan Come From?
Post Date: 2016-10-10 17:58:12 by Willie Green
The devil goes by many names Satan, the Prince of Darkness, Beelzebub and Lucifer to name a few but besides this list of aliases, what do people really know about the brute? That is, how did the story of Satan originate? Many ancient religions have scriptures detailing the struggle between good and evil. For instance, in the Zoroastrian religion, one of the world's earliest, the supreme deity, Ormazd, created two entities: the chaotic and destructive spirit Ahriman and his beneficent twin brother, Spenta Mainyu, said Abner Weiss, a psychologist and the rabbi at the Westwood Village Synagogue in Los Angeles. "The ancient world struggled with the coexistence of good ...
Christian fundamentalist schools ‘performed exorcisms on children and beat pupils in religious rituals’
Post Date: 2016-09-20 11:58:24 by Willie Green
Exclusive investigation reveals serious concerns about how children taught at Accelerated Christian Education in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s were treated, as ex-pupils claim exorcisms were performed on children, pupils were beaten in religious ceremonies and girls were groomed for marriage to older men Teachers at Christian fundamentalist schools in Britain allegedly performed exorcisms on pupils, beat children in religious rituals and groomed girls for marriage, according to former students who say they have decided to speak out now after years of suffering in silence. The former pupils told The Independent such treatment of children was a terrifying ...
Brazoria County Justice
Post Date: 2016-09-08 03:45:10 by interpreter
Brazoria County Jail is probably the most famous (or infamous) jail in the US (if not the world). They are basically famous for the fact that when a fight or a riot breaks out, the jailers do not come into the jail cell(s) to break it up, but send in their police dogs. And it works really quite well, and no jailer gets injured. Anyhow, one time I spent 30 days in the Brazoria Co. jail for blowing .08, and I was very mad at MADD for lowering the limit to .08 which is basically 2 tall boys which I had been drinking after work for 40+ years and is a time-honored tradition in Texas dating from the days of Stephen F Austin. And all the time you mare in jail, you can hear the police dogs ...
Pat Buchanan: A Eulogy For John McLaughlin–Ave Atque Vale!
Post Date: 2016-08-23 12:44:20 by nativist nationalist
Issue one! To understand John McLaughlin, it was helpful to have been a 13-year-old entering an all-boys Jesuit school in the 1950s. For when John yelled Wronnng at me from his center chair of The McLaughlin Group, it hit with the same familiar finality I had heard, many times, from Jesuits at the front of the class at Gonzaga. In that era, John was himself a Jesuit teacher at Fairfield Prep, where the black cape he wore and his authoritarian aspect had earned him from his students the nicknameFather God. In 1970, Fr. John heard another calling, and, declaring himself a liberal Republican, challenged Sen. John Pastore in his home state of Rhode Island. An ...
Dare to Be a Daniel
Post Date: 2016-08-19 10:25:31 by redleghunter
Thine is the dominion, O Lord, and Thou dost exalt Thyself as head over all. Both riches and honor come from Thee, and Thou dost rule over all (1 Chronicles 29:11-12). Trust God, who controls everyone and everything. In Daniel 6, King Darius chose 120 princes to help him govern his kingdom. Over the princes he appointed three presidents, with Daniel being the first president. The princes and other two presidents were jealous of Daniel, so they devised a scheme against him. They told the king that he should make a law requiring every person to make his requests only to the king for the next thirty days. They said, Anyone who makes a petition to any god or man ...

Bush and his cabinet determine that John W. Hinckley Jr. the man who in 1981 tried to kill the newly inaugurated President Ronald Reagan was a lone nut, and no conspiracy, foreign or domestic, was involved? How did they arrive at this conclusion just five hours after the shooting, without any thorough examination?And why wont the Federal Bureau of Investigation release its documents on the shooter?Hinckley, who was released from a federal psychiatric facility on August 5 after 35 ...
#DNCLeaks: Will Putin Get a Pulitzer?
Post Date: 2016-07-26 15:16:36 by nativist nationalist
Waving off the clerics who had come to administer last rites, Voltaire said: All my life I have ever made but one prayer to God, a very short one: O Lord, make my enemies look ridiculous. And God granted it. The tale of the thieved emails at the Democratic National Committee is just too good to be true. For a year, 74-year-old Socialist Bernie Sanders has been saying that, under DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the party has been undercutting his campaign and hauling water for Hillary Clinton. From the 19,200 emails dumped the weekend before Clintons coronation, it appears the old boy is not barking mad. The deck was stacked; the referees were in the ...
What Part of Donald Trump Reminds You of Jesus Christ?
Post Date: 2016-07-17 17:21:30 by Willie Green
Donald Trump's appeal to Evangelical voters is perplexing and bizarre, and it has earned the attention of more than one political observer. Samantha Bee dug into the phenomenon and came to the conclusion that it boiled down to a kind of identity politics, and now legendary documentarian Ken Burns has weighed in. He sat down with The Daily Beast to discuss a retrospective of his films just released online, but the conversation quickly drifted to the 2016 election.Burns did not mince words when it came to Donald Trump and the religious right, the culmination of what he sees as a long con:"The Republican Party has been extraordinarily successful at getting many groups of people to ...
Leftist pastor behind Dallas Black Lives Matter protest wrote of becoming Muslim
Post Date: 2016-07-14 09:41:48 by Justified
Leftist pastor behind Dallas Black Lives Matter protest wrote of becoming Muslim The hard-Left Islamochristian Rev. Jeff Hood wrote this in November 2015: When Jesus bound his body and ultimately became the stranger in Matthew 25:35, he left no doubt that he was calling us to do the same. Since the Paris attacks, Muslims have been strangerized over and over. From calls for registration to violent language around refugees, the rhetoric has grown worse and worse with every day. Jesus is bound to the stranger. Jesus becomes the stranger. In our Islamophobic society, I have no question that Jesus is so intimately incarnated with and connected to our Muslim friends that he has ...
Those That Wanted To Get Prepared Have Already Gotten Prepared By Now

Those That Wanted To Get Prepared Have Already Gotten Prepared By Now By Michael Snyder, on July 11th, 2016 Is the time for warning people to prepare for what is ahead coming to an end? For years, bold men and women all over America have been sounding the alarm and warning people to get prepared physically, financially, mentally, emotionally and spiritually for the great storm that is rapidly approaching. Personally, I have written more than 2,500 articles on my primary two websites combined, and so nobody can accuse me of not blowing the trumpet. It has gotten to the point that sometimes I am even tired of listening to myself warn the people. But now we are shifting into a new phase. The ...
Jesus Miraculously 'Appearing to Muslims' All Over Middle East
Post Date: 2016-06-30 13:34:35 by Willie Green
Wouldn't it have been amazing to have witnessed a miracle like Moses parting the Red Sea, to have stood among the crowd of thousands fed by Christ using only two fish and five loaves of bread, or to have experienced some similar miracle? Where are today's jaw-dropping spectacles? Are epic wonders only a thing of the past?In his recent book Unanswered, a volume that was six years in the making and intends to shed light on topics that have gone largely unaddressed within today's Church, apologist and New Testament scholar Jeremiah Johnston assures that, even in modern times, God is still very much on the move when it comes to working miracles.In fact, Johnston says Jesus is making ...
Gaffe of the Century! NYT Says St. Paul Ordered Christians to ‘Execute’ Homosexuals
Post Date: 2016-06-19 13:34:30 by cranky
The New York Times sloppiness when reporting on Christianity is proverbial, but perhaps none of its prior errors equals its claim this week that the apostle Saint Paul commanded Christians to kill the homosexuals among them. With remarkable insouciance, NYT writers Jeremy W. Peters and Lizette Alvarez blithely make reference to a Bible verse from Romans that calls for the execution of gays, meaning Saint Pauls letter to the Romans 1:18-32. As anyone who has ever read the New Testament knows, Saint Paul never permits that Christians should commit any violence whatsoever against homosexuals, but the Times editors apparently thought that fact-checking with the original ...
