CUFI Fears it’s losing its Grip on Evangelical Christians

Interesting article in today’s Haaretz, and if it’s true, this is one Christian who won’t be shedding any tears… Support for Israel is weakening among evangelical Christians, prompting a new struggle for the hearts and minds of younger members of America’s largest pro-Israel demographic group. While hard numbers are not available, evangelical leaders on both sides […]

Israeli demand sparks ‘Jewish state’ debate

Wonder how the world will view Israel if this passes within the Knesset? From the AP JERUSALEM (AP) — Is Israel “the Jewish state”? The answer may seem as obvious as the Star of David on the Israeli flag. Yet the question is starting to complicate the ambitious U.S. effort to ram through a peace […]

IDF Soldiers Warned Against Contact with Messianic Jews

Israel Today The citizens of Israel woke up this week to a special early morning announcement by the Israeli Army on news broadcasts all across the country: The Ministry of Defense has ordered that all soldiers staying in Jerusalem over the Sabbath are not allowed to have any contact with members of the sect of […]

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas): An Example of Dispensational Theology & Christian Zionism’s Influence upon American Politics

From Nathan Pitchford’s article, The Threat of Christian Zionism If the phenomenal success of the bestselling Left Behind series indicates anything about the prevailing eschatological mindset across a wide swath of the evangelical landscape in modern America, then we would do well to pause and consider. Where is this fascination with the sensational, and frequently outright bizarre, […]

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) – Where Your Donations Go…

Interesting article at Charisma: Where Your Israel Donation Really Goes  One of the ministries highlighted was John Hagee’s Christian Zionism organization, CUFI (Christians United for Israel), which surprised me actually, for Charisma has run articles and messages about and from Hagee for years. What surprised me was the article pulled no punches concerning “what” CUFI […]

Republican-Linked Religious Right Leader Calls For “Military Takeover”

There have been a couple posts already on this topic of NAR Rick Joyner’s newsletter, but this one at Talk2Action is well-worth adding for the further info it offers. Republican-Linked Religious Right Leader Calls For “Military Takeover” (See here for updates and links referred to below) [For embedded video of the evangelist calling for a “military […]

Insurrectionist Rick Joyner asks God for ‘military takeover’ of Obama’s presidency

Sedition; (1) Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state – (2) Insurrection – rebellion. A Christian TV host this week called on God to consider a “military takeover” of President Barack Obama’s government because it could be the only way to save the country from tyranny. On his Monday Internet broadcast, Morning Star […]

The Christian Right, Reborn: Analyzing the rapid growth and rising importance of the NAR

(HT) Long report but worth reading. Spiritual Warriors with an Antigay Mission: The New Apostolic Reformation By Rachel Tabachnick The New Apostolic Reformation, an aggressively political movement within Christianity, blames literal demonic beings for the world’s ills and stresses the power of “spiritual warfare” to deliver people and nations from their power. It is rapidly gaining […]

Circling the Wagons; What’s Next…

Good editorial from Dr. Orrel Steinkamp at Herescope, Pan Evangelicals Still Wield the Broken Sword of Political/Cultural Evangelism The evangelical political games are essentially over. All that is left is to create an evangelical political party. The GOP will sooner, rather than later, nominate a presidential candidate advocating same sex marriage. The past election cycle […]

My Country ‘Tis of Thee: Evangelicals Score Highest on Patriotism

WASHINGTON (RNS) — When it comes to God and country, white evangelicals report the most intense patriotic feelings in a new poll, with more than two-thirds (68 percent) saying they are extremely proud to be an American. That figure was markedly higher than for white mainline Protestants (56 percent), minority Christians (49 percent), Catholics (48 […]

Church of Scotland Caves-in to Powerful Lobby

After reading of the report and the outrage it was stirring up within the Zionist Lobby, I had a hunch the Church of Scotland would cave-in. So I guess I’m not surprised but it still saddens me. As one author commented, “The indigenous Church in Palestine are learning to our shame that they cannot rely […]

Religious Right Threatens: Waver On Traditional Marriage And We Form Third Party

Oh goody. Just as long as the founders of this third party do not claim: (1)- It is “the” Christian party, and (2)- it represents (a) “the” Church or (b) America’s Christians.  quote, Thirteen of America’s top religious right social conservatives this week sent Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus an official letter warning […]

God in America: Part 6 – Of God and Caesar

God in America, a 6-part series made by PBS-Frontline is well worth watching. If you’ve not watched it you can find all 6 segments at PBS Last evening I finished part 6 (on my Netflix) and wanted to share it with you. So make your self a cup of coffee or grab a soft drink […]

Quote of the Day

Perhaps you’ll not see the humor in this like I did, From David French’s recent article in the National Review,  The Biblical and Natural Right of Self-Defense The Democrats — ever vigilant for improper mixing of politics and religion— opened yesterday’s news conference announcing their proposed “assault weapons” ban with a prayer from the dean […]

American Evangelicalism and the Hebrew Roots Movement

Barth Notes has an interesting article up concerning the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast and Pastor Wiley Drake. You may recall Drake being in the news some time back for his “infamous devotion to “imprecatory prayers” against his political opponents, and his admission that he regularly prays for President Obama’s death” But what caught my attention were […]

Christian Activity?

Wading through some of my email today I came upon Andrew Strom’s recent letter to his subscribers titled, Do Christians Love Guns. He makes some excellent points. I am writing this because I continue to believe that US Christians are being “driven” toward something very ugly. There is a lot of nasty rhetoric flying around that […]

Kentucky: A Year in Jail for Not Believing in God?

This guy has hit upon the answer for insuring the myth that America is a “Christian” Nation continues; acknowledge God or go to jail. Seems I recall something similar…Oh yeah, the Roman Crusades when it was ‘convert or die’.    In Kentucky, a homeland security law requires the state’s citizens to acknowledge the security provided […]

Graham: God Will Judge America for Re-Electing Obama Through a Massive Economic Collapse

I have a question for Franklin Graham: Does that also mean God was judging America when the latest massive economic collapse occurred (in 08) during George W. Bush’s time in the White House? Franklin Graham recently sat down with Newsmax where he reiterated his belief that America has turned its back on God by re-electing […]

Missionary Applications to LDS Skyrocketing in Preparations for Romney Presidency

A big thanks to Rick Frueh (Following Judah’s Lion blogspot) for passing along the link to this news item. And I also agree with what he posted concerning the story, I do not expect evangelicals who are blinded by politics and nationalism to even pray about this. But in anticipation of our first Mormon president, the […]

Commentary: Putting Politics before God

CNN Religion News Blog, (By Stephen Prothero: Boston University religion scholar and author of “The American Bible: How Our Words Unite, Divide, and Define a Nation,” is a regular CNN Belief Blog contributor) Why are evangelicals like Billy Graham and Ralph Reed stumping for Mitt Romney? And why are roughly three-quarters of white evangelicals inclined […]

Board member at Rick Joyner’s Oak Initiative: Vote Romney Because He’s a Mormon

Some of the political endorsements coming daily now, are actually pretty funny. Case in point, As RWW has noted, most Religious Right leaders have cast aside whatever reservations they once had about voting for Mitt Romney, whose Mormonism many do not consider a Christian faith. Sure, they’d rather have a conservative evangelical or right-wing Catholic […]

Charisma’s Steven Strang, “I Urge You to Vote for Mitt Romney”….PLUS

Only surprise here is what took him so long With the election a week away our nation is at a critical point. There are many important issues including the enormous debt, energy independence, how to deal with national security and terrorism, and healthcare, to name a few. But as a Christian, it boils down to […]

Franklin Graham and The Little Foxes

Many Christians wouldn’t call it necessary but would see it as compromising the faith.  Shortly after Mitt Romney met with Billy and Franklin Graham earlier this month, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association quietly removed Mormonism from the list of religious cults on the organization’s website and then ran an ad in newspapers around the country urging […]

“Why I’m Voting For….”

The name of the new CP political forum is inspired by Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, […]
