Palm Sunday is a glorious Sunday, when we recall that triumphal entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. At that momentous point, the people recognize that Jesus is the Messiah, the King that was long promised in the writings of the prophets. As I was studying Luke’s account of Palm Sunday this week it struck me just how different that day was for Jesus in contrast with the crowd rejoicing about Him.
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships. Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?
I didn't set out to become a Christian Zionist, but apparently, I wound up as one. Christian Zionism is the belief that Israel has a right to return and establish a nation exactly where she has, and further, she has the right to continue to exist there. There are multitudes of Christian Zionist round the world and a throng of them exist in America, especially within the evangelical churches.
Hollywood is at it again. They are continuously mocking God and His Word only to show the American people how dead set they are against God and His rule. To prove my point, self avowed atheist and director Daren Aronofsky said that his movie “Noah” is the “least biblical, biblical film”
Our leaders are unlawful, the social landscape is in a state of decay, and half the country is oblivious.... Welcome to America in the year 2014! It's no wonder that today's Christian feels less at home here than at any other time in the history of our nation. We are swiftly becoming a silenced minority. It wasn't always this way; in fact, it actually started out pretty well....
Everybody wants to follow Jesus until they find out where He is going. He is going to a cross. And He asks you to pick up yours and follow him. Daily. Luke 9:23-26 What has your faith cost you? Christianity American Style comes on the cheap.
Laws and policy derived from spiritual realities (most notability the depravity of man) and Judeo-Christian foundations is what has kept America strong and sovereign. We needn't buy into religious-humanism's claim that these truths have not shaped and sustained our nation and that these foundations are no longer necessary. To destroy America you must destroy its foundation.
When government agents kill someone, the common assumption often made that such a homicide is perfectly justified. They convince us that we cannot and must not question their actions. They are above the accountability required of everyone else. But the truth of the matter is that they accountable to God, and His law is the standard by which they will ultimately be judged, whether they participated in the murder six months ago of Miriam Carey or the murder of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Where is the George Whitefield or Jonathan Edwards of our day? Are there any just and righteous men left in America? Who can we count on to stand tall, even in the face of public scrutiny, for all that is righteous and good? We need God-fearing men of integrity who will not wilt under the presence of secular authority.
Why are we placing restrictions on how and when truth can be spoken? Why should we be deterred from speaking truth with 100% shameless conviction? Truth is much more than religion. We must continue to speak as boldly in the public square about all natural realities, and make Swiss cheese of the tremendous amount of controlled, sponsored propaganda that has been passing for scholarly study and reporting these days. The fact of the matter is, it's all religion anyway.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
