Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the Dead
Post Date: 2017-04-13 10:07:25 by redleghunter
The bodily resurrection of Christ is the crowning proof that Jesus was who he claimed to be, God manifested in human flesh. Indeed, the resurrection of Christ in flesh is of such importance to the Christian faith that the New Testament insists that no one can be saved without it (Rom. 10:9; 1 Cor. 15:1-7).
Some have opted for a spiritual or immaterial resurrection body, but the New Testament is emphatic that Jesus rose in the same physical body of flesh and bones in which he died. The evidence for this consists in the New Testament testimony of numerous appearances of Christ to his disciples for a period of forty days, in the same physical, nail-scarred body in which ...

Post Date: 2017-03-16 13:09:37 by redleghunter
Patrick of Hibernia is one of the most celebrated evangelists in the Western church. His life and confession is history, even though there are some legends that linger today.

Why Samoa Wants to Make Clear, It's a Christian State
Post Date: 2017-02-09 20:10:53 by hondo68
The Samoan government wants to add a clause to the Constitution that officially defines Samoa as a Christian nation. The Samoan constitution already references Christianity in the cover and preamble, but Samoan leaders want to reference their faith in the body of the constitution. "Every time we say that Samoa is founded on God because it is in within our Constitution, God must've had a good laugh and thought that we have been fooling him," said Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi. "And it has been more than 50 years since we have been fooling God, because this is not in the body of our Constitution. Even more Tuilaepa said "The phrase "Samoa is ...
Conservative criticism intensifies against Pope Francis
Post Date: 2017-02-05 09:56:32 by cranky
VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Conservative criticism of Pope Francis intensified Saturday after his intervention in the Knights of Malta order, with posters appearing around Rome citing his actions against conservative Catholics and asking: "Where's your mercy?" The posters appeared on the same day that Francis cemented his authority over the Knights by naming a top Vatican archbishop, Angelo Becciu, to be his special delegate to the ancient aristocratic order. Francis gave Becciu, the No. 2 in the Vatican secretariat of state, "all necessary powers" to help lay the groundwork for a new constitution for the order, lead the spiritual renewal of its professed knights and ...
Trump bucks breakfast tradition by calling for prayers for Schwarzenegger
Post Date: 2017-02-02 10:40:52 by Willie Green
Speaking at a National Prayer Breakfast unlike most before it, President Trump on Thursday said the nation has to be "tougher" in dealing with other countries, pledged to make it easier for religious groups to engage in politics and asked the crowd to pray for his successor as host of The Apprentice."The ratings are right down the tubes" since Arnold Schwarzenegger took over as host of his former program, Trump said. "It's been a total disaster ... I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can."Trump constantly referenced himself during his remarks, talking at one point about how people often greet him with five words that warm his heart: "I am ...
Queen’s Chaplain Who Questioned Quran Prayers in Cathedral Steps Down After Attempts to ‘Silence, Defenestrate’ Him
Post Date: 2017-01-23 08:49:02 by cranky
Less than a week after one of the Queens Chaplains spoke out against an Islamic Prayer denying the divinity of Jesus Christ being read out in a Scottish Cathedral, the senior churchman has tendered his resignation from that office. Former Chaplain to Her Majesty the Reverend Gavin Ashenden announced his resignation on his personal blog on Saturday night, anticipating that a BBC Radio 4 segment on him and the controversy surrounding the Quranic readings in a Scottish Cathedral to be broadcast on Sunday morning would reveal his resignation despite his requests to the contrary. Remarking that the decision to step down was the most honourable course of action and had come ...

Ann Coulter On Fake Hate And The $PLC: The Great Hijab Cover-Up

Forget fake news; the real issue is fake hate. Has there been one (1) documented hate crime committed by white people against any hue in the Rainbow Coalition since Nov. 8? Thats out of the 9,456,723 hate crimes alleged by Americas leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is to hate what Rolling Stone is to rape. It is the biggest peddler of fantasies since Walt Disney. Ive read through dozens of SPLC hate crimes and they are all lies. The Muslim girls in particular seem to be very spirited liars. Since the election, there have been vivid stories from across the nation of Trump supporters tearing off ...
The world desperately needs more exorcists
Post Date: 2016-12-28 17:34:33 by cranky
A New York woman who levitated six inches off the ground, mysteriously spoke in foreign languages and demonstrated paranormal powers made medical history in 2008 because a panel of doctors from New York Medical College agreed she was possessed by the devil. In presenting the case of Julia in the New Oxford Review, board certified psychiatrist Dr. Richard Gallagher cautioned that religious practitioners should be on alert for what he called a rapidly growing worldwide phenomenon. Gallaghers warning was on point, say exorcists, who claim there are now so many devils out there, the Vatican cant recruit enough exorcists to chase them away. Father Vincent ...

Israeli archaeologists on Thursday presented new details of what they said were the first tiny artifacts, unearthed in situ on the Temple Mount, ever conclusively dated to the time of the First Temple over 2,600 years ago. The discoveries were made during limited scientific excavations carried out atop the flashpoint Temple Mount in the past decade, the first of their kind since the British Mandate. The highly sensitive Israeli excavations were conducted with minimum publicity in cooperation with the Islamic Waqf which manages the incendiary holy site. The artifacts excavated from the mount, detailed in a paper and presentations at a conference at Hebrew University, are said to include ...

Post Date: 2016-10-27 15:06:50 by redleghunter
Jerusalem, IsraelFor the first time in centuries, scientists have exposed the original surface of what is traditionally considered the tomb of Jesus Christ. Located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem, the tomb has been covered by marble cladding since at least 1555 A.D., and most likely centuries earlier. "The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it, said Fredrik Hiebert, archaeologist-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, a partner in the restoration project. It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock ...

Digital imaging brings biblical text to light
Post Date: 2016-10-03 16:57:38 by redleghunter
Nearly half a century ago, archaeologists found a charred ancient scroll in the ark of a synagogue on the western shore of the Dead Sea. The lump of carbonized parchment could not be opened or read. Its curators did nothing but conserve it, hoping that new technology might one day emerge to make the scroll legible. Just such a technology has been perfected by computer scientists at the University of Kentucky. Working with biblical scholars in Jerusalem, they have used a computer to unfurl a digital image of the scroll. It turns out to hold a fragment identical to the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible and, at nearly 2,000 years old, is the earliest instance of the text. The writing ...

Im not an anti-Semite; I never have been; and I dont have much time for anti-Semites. Ive written a couple of million words of opinion commentary this past thirty years, all of it archived on my website, and I defy you to find any evidence of anti-Semitism in it anywhere. However, Ive turned against the word philosemite, for reasons Ive explained elsewhere. Basically, its patronizing. If pressed on the issue, I call myself an anti-anti-Semite.

Marijuana Missionaries: First Cannabis Church Rolls Into Michigan
Post Date: 2016-09-20 11:31:41 by Willie Green
Theres no religious dogma in this church, but these marijuana missionaries are intent in on bringing ostracized stoners back into the fold. Congregants in this church arent high on Jesus. In fact, the very name of the church sounds like lyrics from a rock and (ahem) roll song or the backdrop for a classic Cheech and Chong movie. Its true that First Cannabis Church of Logic and Reasons sacrament might be a doobie or marijuana-infused brownie instead of the body and blood of Christ, and its dogma is steeped in giving thanks to the cannabis plant for its healing nature and the sense of well-being it gives users instead of Jesus sacrifices for sinners. The church, ...
