Liberty University, Kirk Cameron, and Reclaiming The 7 Mountains Theology

“In the mid 90s the idea of societal transformation and social entrepreneurship began to emerge when Bob Buford, author of Halftime began to voice the need for social impact through one’s workplace call. Other groups like Pinnacle Forum, a ministry to key influencers and our own ministry, Marketplace Leaders and International Coalition of Workplace Ministries […]

Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship in ‘Action Comics’

Well, here’s a story which will likely ruffle some feathers.   After recently undertaking a journey to walk — not fly — across the United States in the “Grounded” storyline and reconnect with the country and everyday Americans, Superman appears to be taking another step that could have major implications for his national identity: in […]

YMCA ‘Boots’ Santa

I needed a laugh; This is a winner.. Kids who once thrilled at sitting on Santa’s lap at the 14th Street McBurney YMCA’s wildly popular annual holiday luncheon will now suffer the icy embrace of a talking snowman and his sidekick, an anonymous penguin, at today’s event. Forget about bringing a list or checking it […]

Replacing Godless Hollywood with Bible-Based “Cultural Dominion”

Interesting article whether you agree (or disagree) with the author. I personally like Kirk Cameron, so was taken aback somewhat to see his name in the same article with that of many well known Reconstructionists, such as Doug Phillips and Phyllis Schlafly. Nevertheless, a few quotes…. For anyone wondering what the “culture” would look like […]

“Half-Baked” Christianity

Excellent message by Pastor Larry DeBruyn. I heard a similar message preached many years ago, also based upon Hosea 7:8, “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he […]

Audio: A Nation Abandoned by God

I read two articles tonight which may appear to be concerning two totally different topics, but in reality they are not. What both reveal is just how compromised AND ultimately apostate the Christian University’s and Seminary’s are, here in America. The first concerns the decision of Southern California’s Claremont School of Theology to “partner with […]

Basketball league for white Americans (only)

Sharp ugly divisions are being seen everywhere (and within every-thing) inside this nation today. Instead of pointing out Haiti’s supposed pact with the devil, we should be more concerned about the growing division in America, before this nation implodes. Perhaps we made our own pact with the devil… As followers of Christ Jesus, may we […]

Be afraid. Be “very” afraid

This evening I was reading a post at Polycarp’s blog concerning the latest newsletter sent out by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. I love the way these folks always start out with “imagine”…then go on to list a bunch of ‘what if’s’ as though they’re already fact. It reminded me of the fear […]

Why fundamentalism will fail

(HT to Polycarp). This is a fascinating article posted at the Boston Globe. After reading through it I found myself pondering on the implications for future generations, if Jesus tarries. Those that read here know I have no use for the terms fundamentalism or fundamentalist, as they are used today. Whatever it once denoted in […]

Eliminationists

Interesting article and interview with David Neiwert, author of the book  The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right quote.. There has been much discussion of the culture of incivility lately, epitomized by the recent indecorous outbursts of Rep. Joe “You Lie” Wilson (R-SC) during President Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress, […]

The Hate Crimes Bill

In recent days I’ve been doing more reading then writing/posting. Along with reading more in the word, I’ve also been reading news stories and items coming not only from the US Church (in general) but news stories which the Church is either concerned about or in some cases, up in arms over. Last weeks approval […]

Doctor: “I ‘got rid of’ patient after Katrina”

‘‘To me, it was a no-brainer, and to this day I don’t feel bad about what I did.” “I gave her medicine so I could get rid of her faster, get the nurses off the floor,” Cook told ProPublica, an independent nonprofit investigative organization, in a report to be published Sunday in The New York […]

John MacArthur: Read the Gospels, JC is not PC

This article was posted, by The Washington Post, in the “On Faith” section of their website on Aug 14, 2009 Let’s be brutally honest: most of Jesus’ teaching is completely out of sync with the mores that dominate our culture. I’m talking, of course, about the Jesus we encounter in Scripture, not the always-gentle, never-stern, […]

Who needs to know this?

That is the question Wickle asked at A True Believer’s Blog: Who needs to know this?. quote.. The headline on CNN reads, “Lusty e-mails make news anchors blush.” How, exactly, is the public served with this stuff? I don’t need to know what Gov. Sanford and his mistress said to each other. I read part […]

Pew Forum Findings on Torture results in Blogosphere Firestorm

Yep it sure did. I’ve been following a number of discussions this week, many of them which  became very volatile, especially on Christian blogs. The Washington Post has a different slant on this latest  ‘blog-bomb’: GOD IN GOVERNMENT, Fiery Response to Pew’s Torture Analysis. The author sees the controversy as less about faith/religion and more […]
